10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

You guys. It's getting harder and harder to concentrate on movies and you know that's a nightmare for us when movies are our great love. But every day that goes by as America slides towards concentration camps, complete inhumanity, and fascism, Amy Poehler's questionnaire from last week at THR becomes ever more needed and brilliant. Here's the Q&A since the article is long and not about this:

Maybe they'll hire Streep. She definitely aped Huston drag in that Giver adaptation.

Three rounds of applause for Poehler. Use your voice girl.

I am wondering - just wondering. Any chance my Cher could get a supporting Oscar nod in "Mama Mia" - just for being fabulous, singing "Fernando," stepping out of a helicopter, and not being invited to the party? (best kind of party to be at).

Concentration Camps in the USA?

What ever happened to Robert Zemeckis Career ?

What ever happened to Robert Zemeckis Career?

He never recovered from Forrest Gump. A horrible movie made unbearable by its penetration in the pop culture more so than its Oscar haul.

I'm heartbroken and angry as well. I keep plugging it, but Amy is right about Mr. Rogers, and Won't You Be My Neighbor? brought me joy (the tearing up kind) when I saw it. Highly recommended for a sanity break.

Amy Poehler.... saying what needs to be said about this shithole of a country run by an egotistical asshole who is clearly not a human being. He has no heart, he has no brains, and no sense of morality.

Anyone who still follows that fuck-head and will say something stupid like "womp-womp".... you're going to get knocked the fuck out and I will make goddamn sure you fucking stay down.

What did you think about the whole buffoonery thar Brie Larson said about movie critics' race?

June 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterSTFU

The fall of John Lasseter is unbelievable and the case must be much more serious than what's been redacted.
