Btw, Chipper have you watched Rushmore or Royal Tenenbaums? Along with Fantastic Mr. Fox, those are the movies I usually recommend. I sometimes recommend Life Aquatic, but a lot of people didn't like it.
Blood pudding is amazing. As is haggis, surprisingly. Not as keen on faggots though, I had one for the first time the other day (well, you gotta try everything once except folk dancing and incest, right?) and.....yeah, I'm not that sure on the texture. I won't be repeating THAT particular experiment again.
maybe its just that I am older then a lot of you....or maybe its my cynicism, but this isnt the first tragedy this nation has seen, nor is it the worst. I have seen so many of these things, and once I get past the disbelief, and then the grief over my race....I always find myself looking forward to all the dark humor that always surrounds these events.
Guess I try to find something about them to laugh about.....so as not to cry
Whoa, hey, let's dial it back a notch. Sure, it might be insensitive and you or I might not find it particularly funny, but there's no reason for this to degenerate into personal attacks and name-calling.
I love Royal Tenenbaums, disliked Rushmore. Loved Fantastic Mr. Fox, disliked Life Aquatic. I always laugh a few times in his movies, but like I said, he has the same kind of shtick with everything. For me at least, it gets old.
I'm pretty damn jaded considering what I do for a living is read some of the worst and hateful things on the internet. And that's just at our small town newspapers, I can't imagine dealing with it on something a LOT bigger. But I think knowing where to draw a line and not to cross it is what separates us from those posters that make someone like me feel exhausted and sad about the world every day.
I don't get what people mean sometimes when they say all his movies are the same. He employs the same style, and many of the same themes, but each story is different. The only ones that are really similar are Tenenbaums and Life Aquatic (for example, the protagonist is a Jerkass with a Heart of Gold with a dysfunctional family and he's trying to reconnect with/rebuild his family while also pursuing his own selfish goals). Darjeeling sort of has the same thing, with one of the brothers trying to bring the family back together.
The same style and themes are what I mean by all his movies being the same. Or I should say the style and themes are the same so it feels like the exact same movie regardless of the plot. It's the same type of dialogue and the same general character tropes. And there's nothing about Moonrise Kingdom that deserves an Oscar nomination outside of them going oh Wes Anderson is weird and therefore must be good.
Personally I find more humor in the media circus. And really, I have a pretty morbid sense of humor, but it's not that funny of a joke.
Now me having an image of Poet putting a coat on some kid's back at the hospital with the bat symbol on it, that something that would be both funny and sweet and still pretty morbid... because I'm imagining poet as a stoner Gordon.
