Another round: Exploring sadness and life through alcohol

Apparently, each year, there’s a study that determines the “happiest” country in the world; I found that notion absurd. How can you objectively determine that?

How Promising Young Woman and I care a lot compare to each other

Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Observe and Report; White House Down and Olympus has fallen; Antz and A Bug’s life; my personal favorite, Christine (2016) and Kate plays Christine.

Why I love Jojo rabbit and how irreverent comedies are not dead.

When I left the theater after the Jojo rabbit screening, I couldn’t help but think about several stuff regarding the movie, but one struck me as odd; this quote from Joker director Todd Phillips about “woke” culture destroying comedies for him.
