    The Tale of the Fox


    Holy shit, my dudes.

    The word "miraculous" gets thrown around a lot, especially when it comes to things many people put many long hard hours into to accomplish or creating, but this genuinely feels like some sort of miracle.

    A French, stop-motion animated film released in 1937, based on 12th Century folk tales, ten years in the making, released eight months before Snow White, and survived and survived all the years and decades, and now, nearly a century later, I…

    I’m not afraid to admit that I was so hyped that I was surprisingly emotionally raw as I was sitting down in the theater. 

    Once the 20th Century Fox fanfare began, I was so grateful for the 3D glasses covering my eyes.

    I felt like a sponge that for three hours was slowly wrung dry. This is the way of water. 

    I’ll probably need to see it another 20 times. Can’t wait for The Seed Bearer.

    You know that ice-breaker question about a deserted island and three tv shows you would take with you?

    Hell’s Kitchen would be one of my three. That’s my crack-cocaine of tv series, and even I would admit that the thrill of observing people in a high pressure kitchen environment is limited, and Burnt doesn’t go beyond them.

    It’s very cheesy. I don’t really know if it totally succeeds in paying off the arcs that it wants to, but I also can’t deny that I wasn’t completely emotionally manipulated by the end of it either. 

    Rocky is just an endearing and enduring character and there’s something primitively cathartic about seeing him in the ring.

    I don’t think anyone really appreciates how good we had it when we had Brendan Fraser consistently being a golden retriever as a human. Wonderfully charming movie that had me hooting and hollering.
