I don't watch many shows or movies, but nostalgia finally won and I decided to watch "A Bug's Life" (1998) again. The last time I watched it was very likely when I was a kid. I rate it 10/10, mainly due to it being a part of my childhood, but also because I really like the vibrant colors and the cast of misfit characters of the movie. I finally understood some of the jokes! There's not enough shows, movies, games, songs, media, art, etc. that feature bugs, which I find strange... there is so many kinds of the little critters, each with different colors and body types and abilities - there's so much you can do with them!



Now I am tempted to watch "Antz", which is another animated movie about bugs that came out around the same period - this time revolving around butt-ugly ants.

Three movies from director Sean Baker - Tangerine (about a couple of black transsexual street whores up to no good in a dingy part of L.A. on Christmas); The Florida Project (about a group of motels outside DisneyWorld that put up with homeless people doing extended stays); Red Rocket in the theater (about a 40-something porn star who comes home to Texas and takes up with a 17-year-old doughnut shop worker). I was surprised that I mostly liked all three movies. I like his style. Like many other indie-type filmmakers, he works in a vignette-ish style rather than an overly structured plot. The movies focus on lowlifes, but with some affection. Red Rocket is getting some positive attention currently, and former MTV VJ Simon Rex is really good in it.

Has anyone else seen "Don't Look Up"? I hated it; 0/10, wish I could get those hours back, wish I could unsee it. I realize it's supposed to be comedy and I basically don't have a sense of humor so maybe it's my own damn fault for listening to the hype and giving it a try anyway because I like dystopian/apocalypse themes.

I get that it's satire, but it's just so in-your-face and overblown. More than that, though, this movie exemplifies something I absolutely detest about modern "society" and especially modern humor. But it's something I have a hard time pinning down or explaining. It's not just that it's crude and rude... It's like "******* humor." Is this thing with characters being total jerks to one another for no apparent reason supposed to be funny? Because it's definitely not; it's just cringeworthy and sad IMNSHO.

I feel like **** like this is a large part of the reason why people in general are so cruel and apathetic to anything that doesn't immediately concern them these days, you know?

Blood Simple (Blu-ray from Netflix mail) - I've never actually viewed any Coen brothers movies aside from Raising Arizona on HBO decades ago. Like with a few filmmakers, they're someone I have kept meaning to watch (when each new movie comes out), but haven't gotten to it. Nothing they've done has been too intriguing. I was tentatively planning on going to the Macbeth movie in the theater (which Joel directed solo for the first time). Anyway, Blood Simple just isn't that good. I have no idea why it is so revered. The characters are wafer thin, perhaps even more so than in the lowest-tier slasher movie. I guess the point of the movie is that they do really stupid stuff and get themselves further in trouble when they didn't need to be, but it's all so thin that it's hard to be invested in any aspect. Also, in the last scene, I guess arms can be longer if you want them to be?

I also feel very meh about Coens. I've seen No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski and True Grit, all of which were just ok. Probably the most enjoyable Coen movie was Fargo but it's merely pleasant and nowhere near mindblowing, whereas Fargo the 2014 series (nowt to do with Coens) was legitimately amazing. I've got Burn After Reading on my watchlist so Coens are getting another chance...but I'm not holding my breath.
