    Garfield starring James McAvoy, 2028 Palme d'Or winner

    An introspective contemplative piece about a lonely man who suffers from schizophrenia and hallucinatory delusions of his feline companion talking to him. 5/5 stars, thought about it for days after leaving the theater.

    it doesn't bro that's why Garfield won the 2028 Palme d'Or

    even 82 year-old third-term President Trump liked it

    fourth-wave incel movement advocates found McAvoy's portrayal of Jon Arbuckle to be touching and relatable

    im probably naïve and out of touch, but I have a hard time believing that there's an actually a large group of people that self identify as incels

    I don't think they'd self-identify as such but you sure as shit know there's an enormous group of ppl who very much view themselves with the incel lens, whether or not they are okay w/being called that.

    (i.e. women are terrible because they reject me even though i'm such a "nice guy")

    My pet theory for the decline in Hollywood script writing was that they want to appeal to the growing non-western audiences that are not as discerning with plots. However, these comic book stories are mainly familiar to US and western audiences, so clearly something more is going on. Also, the heavy-handed progressive slant of some recent blockbusters can't go over well with non-western audiences, so perhaps it's just inbreeding and decadence after all.

    new movies usually suck

    also easy rider was just an excuse for drug-addled Hollywood hippies to take a bike trip

    I have heard that it is good and not really problematic despite all the bluster but also not great, so that’s the bar I’m setting

    Seeing Joker tonight, looks amazing + Phoenix is awesome.

    I've watched this movie quite a few times and it is pretty slow but I love it for the sound track more than anything.
