I still can't believe this is a thing.  Sorry I missed it.  What's next?  Boondocks Saints?

These thoughts from you guys are really building my anticipation up to feverish heights. Unfortunately, I doubt the film will play near me for some weeks, if at all. Hopefully, since Amazon Studios in distributing it, it'll stream from them fairly soon.

I saw this the other night. I enjoyed it on the whole. I don't have any major gripes with it; it was fun, funny, you can make multiple interpretations about it, and it was technically very good. I applaud the long list of animators and model designers for the sheer craft that must have gone into creating all the character models and sets.

Of course, there's some (in my opinion, annoying) controversy over the film in the media right now, namely about "cultural appropriation," which is pretty laughable considering Japan has a history of imperialism and colonialism, and is a major economic, technology, and cultural player on the world scale. Without getting into it too much, I'll say that it's one thing to be able to have fun with another culture, and it's OK to poke fun at differences as long as respect and appreciation for the positive aspects of another culture are maintained, just as it's OK to laugh at oneself and your own culture. It's about perspective and acceptance. I can't help but interpret the Tracy character as a sort tongue-in-cheek thing about white privileged people, although I'm not sure this was the writers' intention. One of my criticisms about the film is that some of the philosophical and moral aspects, whatever you want to call them (I don't really like using the word "moral"), seemed kind of general and vague in a bit of an underdeveloped sense, and not really thought out enough to be presented in the way they were. Anyway, I've already said too much about this topic, and I don't the film is to be taken too heavily on these aspects, so maybe the general-ish approach from the film is fine and can at least provoke some further thought in the audience. It was an overall well-done and enjoyable movie.

I was able to catch an early preview screening of The Well, and I have to say it's now one of my favorite thrillers of all time. The director was not in attendance, but I wish he were there for a Q&A, as the film raised a lot of questions.

We're watching Crash (2004) tonight! Starting at 6:00 Eastern. Please see the shoutbox for exactly when to begin.

It's on Amazon Prime (thank God). Otherwise you may have to rent it.

We should all have the movie paused where this logo first appears, then Reelist will tell us when to unpause:

Must say that A Quiet Place was much better than I expected, worth watching for sure!
