What you're saying to the ticket taker when you see a movie this weekend.
The Hangover: Part II - “The word ‘penis’ makes me laugh regardless of context.”
Kung Fu Panda 2 - "Who are you to judge me? Go do some research and you’ll discover that the original Kung Fu Panda was pretty freakin’ well reviewed and this one has a 77% on RottenTomatoes. Ever heard of a man named Roger Ebert? Oh, you have? Well he said, ‘The animation is elegant, the story is much more involving than in the original.' Are you calling him a liar because of his face? God, you're an asshole.”
The Tree of Life - You don’t say anything because there is nothing to say. There is only feeling. Loving. Existing. You smile. You shut your eyes. You imagine the universe as it was millions of years before this moment. You imagine the universe as it will be millions of years from now. There is peace. There is calm. You blow in the ticket taker’s ear.
“[The 40 Year Old Virgin] is Apatow’s masterpiece, and its lived-in bagginess was like a cool breeze let into a stifling room. Since then, though, Apatow’s films — and those of his lesser imitators — have become their own incestuous little jam sessions, bros riffing with bros, and Hollywood has once again locked the door and pulled the shades, so we’re right back to that same sense of comedic claustrophobia, except now we’re trapped in there with Russell Brand. The remedy is simple: Someone needs to toss a brick through the window. Let some air in. It wouldn’t hurt if the brick came wrapped in an actual joke.”—‘The Hangover’ and the Age of the Jokeless Comedy - NYTimes.com
when Dorothy sneaks into the kitchen to secretly pry open Sophia’s locked box with a bobby pin, and then Blanche and Rose walk in as Blanche says to Rose, “I oughta have you horse whipped!” but Dorothy thinks it’s Blanche scolding her for looking through Sophia’s box so Dorothy drops the box and shrieks, “I HAVEN’T EVEN OPENED THE DAMN THING!”
That’s my current tension level, and I’m not even going through the change.
