    Aurora's narration and the doors opened.


    Also, your snow day sounds great. How was La La Land? I'm not really a fan of musicals (people breaking out into song all the time, not a lot of spoken dialogue), but don't mind movies with songs. Based on that, could I tolerate it?

    I dont think Ill ever be able to forget Susie. Most of all, I will never forget that one night, working late
    on the catalog. Just the two of us. And we surrendered to temptation. And it was pretty good. - J. Peterman

    Oh, yeah. You can tolerate it. There's a ton of dialogue. There's really only a handful of musical scenes. It's a great film.

    How is it not a fault of Bayona? He didn't write the script, but the director has to take some of the blame for conveying a bad story as you would say.

    It's the fact they made a movie in Thailand about rich white people enjoying a privileged Christmas and the tsunami hits and it ends with all the white people going home together, losing nothing but their Christmas presents. Ugh. Someone once tried to defend the movie by saying it's based off a book written by a Spanish family, which means they white washed it even more than I thought they did! It's not the movie itself or even the plot or characters, it's the total conceit of the story that it was actually told, so insulated from a real disaster which killed nearly half a million people, but no white people lol

    The director is from Spain, so he could have fixed that. Unfortunately, the studio would never allow it. They needed famous white faces to sell the film. Afterall, it is a business.

    The major problem with the film is that it's a film about perhaps the greatest tragedy of my life time. It was a catastrophic disaster which affected over a dozen countries. I can't think of any natural disaster being more widespread in it's devastation than an asteroid impact. The film itself has no tragedy. The main characters survive and find each other and get to return to their not washed away home and town as if it never happened to them in the first place. The tragedy is on the peripheries, glimpsed, out of focus, but never in frame. It just eliminates and impact of the movie. I'd rather have seen a movie a thai family dealing with the disaster and the aftermath. Instead the characters board and plane and go home and leave the tragedy and destruction behind them, just like the audience as they leave the theatre. It could have been much more than it was :/

    Are you planning on seeing Wind River? It's Taylor Sheridan's directorial debut, so I'm intrigued.

    Nice! I just rewatched Kiki's Delivery Service a few weeks ago. It's another favorite of mine, and it got me wanting to rewatch most of his films now.

    You will be hearing from my lawyer.

    I just think they showed all the funny parts in the trailer. I will say this, Aubrey Plaza was smoking in that film.
