“These are the best days of our lives. It’s a terrible thing to know, but I know it…”
It was 1966 and music pretty much would never get any better then it was right then… overall anyways. I mean sure, good music continued to be made after ’66, I’m not arguing that. Something about that particular time though… it’s like you can tell WHY it was being made. They had something to say. Guess what though…. the man didn’t want them to say ANYTHING.
“The good news is the engine has exploded and we’re all going to die.”
There were points, in both of these movies, that I was literally cringing. They also brought back terrible flashbacks of some blind dates I had in my early 20s. Don’t reactions like those make the best movies? These are relatable underdog characters full of witty dialogue. When will you ever be able to see Phillip in dreadlocks smoking from a hookah again? So the next time you’re sick of watching another Stars romantic comedy involving the Wilson brothers, check this one out.
This movie knocked me on my ass. I CANNOT believe I didn’t know about it when it first came out. A good new friend turned me onto this one. This is a extraordinary (TRUE) account of two pen pals who connect from separate sides of the world and form a lifelong friendship putting ink to paper.
Quote: Not much has happened since I last wrote except for my manslaughter charges, lotto win, and Ivy’s death.
It’s pretty simple. Jeff Bridges is the dude. He always was, and he always will be. Very recently (like oh, the last 4 years, let’s call it) everyone loves Jeff Bridges, and he is FINALLY getting his due props, and an Oscar for one role even. I, for one, think it’s about time.
Quote: Also, let’s not forget – let’s *not* forget, dude – that keeping wildlife, an amphibious rodent, for uh, domestic, you know, within the city – that ain’t legal either.
