  1. Clueless, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and For a Good Time, Call... are definitely mine. I also love watching cooking shows despite my lack of cooking.
  2. Fellow listener of The Bechdel Cast!?

    Musical Mondays Week 83 Yellow Submarine

    For some reason I want to stress how terrifying the blue meanies are to a child. I still look at them and kinda shiver. They are not chill.

    Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

    I couldn't agree more. I don't think there's more influential, and just overall great movies, than Dr. Strangelove, 2001, and The Shining. I'm still shocked every time I look at the list again that The Shining isn't represented.

    Alfonso Cauron directed Roma, but your sentiment still stands.

    92nd Academy Awards Nominations

    I'm also very happy for Florence Pugh getting nominated because I thought she was one of the standouts in acting this year.

    Musical Mondays Week 83 Yellow Submarine

    I think some of the songs are maybe "b-sides" which I would just as a catchall term for "lesser known" but I wouldn't say that about Eleanor Rigby or All You Need is Love. Maybe I'm just naive since I think those songs are hits but if you think about it terms of their actual hits then yeah maybe they aren't the ones people expected to be thrown in a movie. Also is it just me or is Eleanor Rigby a really depressing way to start an animated movie?

    92nd Academy Awards Nominations

    Ah I haven't seen Harret yet so I genuinely had no idea. I wanted Awkwafina and JLo to get acting nominations this year, and they were both directed by women as well. In fact I'm FLOORED that The Farewell didn't receive A SINGLE FUCKING NOMINATION!

    Musical Mondays Week 83 Yellow Submarine

    I'm gonna start with how this movie was actually my introduction to the Beatles as a child. So my aunt and uncle were babysitting me, my aunt being legitimately like 9 months pregnant (may not seem relevant but it is later). I do not remember how the conversation started but I believe they made a reference that I didn't get (I was only 9 years old at the time) and when they asked me if I had heard of the Beatles I shrugged and said no. Of course they were livid with my mom and sat me down on the couch and said that the first thing to do was watch Yellow Submarine. I was petty much hooked and delighted of course by the colors and the music, but the blue meanies genuinely did scare the shit out of me. Because my aunt was so pregnant my uncle continuously called her a blue meanie because one of them looked like this. After that they played the music in their house and I was properly introduced to the wonderful catalog of The Beatles, and I never looked back.

    92nd Academy Awards Nominations

    Oh I knew we wouldn't. I'm just shocked that Little Women is the only female directed movie recognized at all. ETA: Oh oops I did accidentally overlook Tom Hanks who was in a female directed movie, but that is the only other one to be recognized this year.

    Favorite Movies of 2019

    People in my movie loving circle usually suggest 2010 was a better year for Jeff Bridges, but I disagree with that because I didn't actually enjoy True Grit as much as everyone else did... although I had a terrible movie going experience when I went to see that movie so it could have heavily effected my thoughts. Despite the fact that Christian Bale probably still would've won (another giant transformation win for him that year) I am still angry that Andrew Garfield was denied even a nomination for The Social Network. His performance was truly the stand out in my opinion.

    Favorite Movies of 2019

    Couldn't agree more. I think the Academy has a habit of celebrating an actor they've realized they should have celebrated in the past for a better performance (see also Colin Firth winning for The King's Speech when it's obvious he should have won for A Single Man instead).

    Wait... did you think Leo looked ugly in The Revenant? Cause... lol nah Better examples of this would be Gary Oldman for The Darkest Hour, Nicole Kidman for The Hours, or Charlize Theron for Monster (altho Charlize kills it in that role regardless of the physical transformation).

    Favorite Movies of 2019

    I haven't seen either yet so I can't really comment on anything, however, when they showed the clip of Rami for the Oscars during the "here are the nominees for" section. I was struck by how... not acting it seemed. They just played a clip of him lip syncing and I was like jfc this is what they are going to give the Oscar to? At least this year with Taron being a front runner alongside Joaquin you know he actually had to sing all of his own songs in Rocketman (despite me thinking the movie overall was only okay at best).

    Best of the Decade Part 4

    I find it very interesting how many movies have come up that aren't American productions. Raw is a purely French film, Shame is purely British produced, and I'm curious about What We Do in the Shadows because it has only New Zealand production money until suddenly I see Funny or Die listed as a company that produced it. Does that make it an American production as well at that point? My only reasoning for bringing this up is that while we are honoring what we all view as the best of the decade, the point of the show for me would be to honor the best of the decade that has the ability to make it onto the AFI list. If I misunderstood the point of this episode, or misheard a disclaimer then by all means shut me up lol, but the fun of this for me is figuring out what is the best of American cinema in this decade.
