    The Coen Brothers hate you.

    Well, maybe not you, but they definitely hate your taste in movies. Billed as a Romcom, The Coen Brothers manage to undermine every possible trope, dispelling the idea of true love and making you despise their two leads.

    While this movie is considered by many to be "lesser Coen brothers," it has a lot in common with another film also given that label, The Hudsucker Proxy. Both movies are impossible to fully unlock without understanding…

    Cats

    I was feeling shitty this morning so I rewatched Cats.

    More like I was feeling numb. Like I felt like if I watched anything that I loved, it wouldn't have the same emotional effect.

    If you are someone who hasn't seen this movie because of how horrible the reviews are, I beg you to reconsider. This might be the most unique experience you can have with any film. I can't describe the feeling of disgust and wonder that this film…

    The Pursuit of Happyness

    ★★★★

    This movie could never be made today.

    At its core it has a sort of Reagan-era optimism that by working hard and being better than your peers you can pull yourself up by your bootstraps. The film was made shortly before the ‘08 crash, which caused a souring on the concept of the American Dream. This film is a remnant of its time, and yet, in a bubble, it still works.

    I can be skeptical of films like this, yet…

    ★★★½

    This one is surely for the Letterboxd users.

    What tag line could interest y’all more than a film that explores Bergman’s legacy through visiting his home? A film that literally takes you on the “Bergman Safari bus” dropping random facts about his life and films constantly?

    Bergman provides solace for the characters. He is both peaceful, and a mystery which they are trying to unravel. He is something they return to when they get too wrapped up in their own…

    If Anya Taylor-Joy and Harry Melling had children, their kids’ eyes would be the right distance apart.

    Cars

    ★★★

    So I have a couple questions...

    Why does Lightning McQueen have a tongue?

    How does money work in this world?

    Cars can be seen using men and women’s restrooms. What are they doing in the bathroom? Why are they gendered?

    Are cars built or born? How do they become sentient?

    If they’re born, how?

    How is Mater able to use his rear view mirrors when they’re behind his eyes?

    Why do cars have passenger doors? Despite no humans existing, they…
