    Life Is Beautiful

    Mio dio! What to make of this movie? Roberto Benigni plays Guido….. that’s not the only culturally insensitive thing in this movie, so buckle up. Guido is a Jewish Italian dolt in and around the world war 2 era. He plays these affable little pranks like stealing people’s clothing (or significant others), impersonating government officials, and all around things that would annoy anyone in any culture. It’s a hoot! “Now, DMS, wouldn’t framing this movie that ends up at a…

    In maybe the most accurate portrayal of day-to-day American life ever put to film, this film, at its heart, is about humans - racist humans - or as I like to call them AMERICAN humans!

Me?! *boom bap boom boom boom bap*” and haul off on ole dude. NOBODY SLAPS ME IN THE FACE, ESPECIALLY NOT JK SIMMONS! Andrew tries dating a…

    Oliver meets Jenny in a library, where she berates him into a date despite having no previous contact with him. She’s a working class gal, you see, while Oliver? He’s preppy! Get used to hearing “preppy” used as a pet name entirely too much in this movie. She was a girl, he was a boy, can I make it ANYmore OBVious? Mambo Olly No. 4 plays ice hockey, while Jen Jen studies and performs classical music. Did that defy your…
