The Daily Footnote

So far, I have been enjoying the Adventures of Business Cat a great deal, possibly more than is appropriate for an adult human. (All of these are from the webcomic Happy Jar)

UPDATE: Now with more Business.

There are those boys with earthly eyes
Their eyes are like the ground
You walk and walk, kickin’ up dirt
But they don’t make a sound
And when they kiss you, they sometimes leave ‘em open
To make sure you don’t drown
Yeah, the sweetest eyes, the truest eyes are probably dark brown…

I had this song stuck in my head today! It’s so good! 

Men who call you “hon” and “dear” on the phone

Like, no, I just told you my name when I answered the phone and I am not your “hon.” Kindly get out please, kbai.

I hate when people ask questions during movies like do you not understand that the movie purposly doesn’t tell you things in order to build suspense

This movie, you guys. Go see it while you have the chance; it’s easily the best of the summer! #Snowpiercer

SNOWPIERCER, YOU GUYS.

It was SO GOOD. Go throw your dollars at it this weekend and get ready for an amazing ride that hooks you in, doesn’t let you go, and truly makes you think in the process. Seriously, I want to write essays about the way this movie ends.

REASONS TO GO SEE SNOWPIERCER RIGHT NOW: 

  • The cinematography is stunning—it’s amazing what you can do when you’re shooting most of your film in a corridor, for real
  • The action sequences are probably the clearest and most easy-to-follow sequences I’ve seen in a movie in years. Honestly, I didn’t realize until an hour after seeing it that I wasn’t having to squint and hold my head a certain way to understand what was going on. Death to the shaky cam; Bong Joon-Ho needs to teach a master class to like 90% of American directors on how to make action sequences work seamlessly. 
  • It’s playing opposite a fourth installment of the mind-numbing Transformers, and actually deserves to earn the kind of blockbuster money that that awful series has by default. 
  • They shot the movie on an actual train-like set—not surrounded by green screens—and it shows. It’s tangible and it’s amazingly well done. 
  • The cast is phenomenal. Even small parts surprised me with more familiar faces (Allison Pill, Ed Harris). And each part is SO well acted. 
  • IT’S AMAZIIINNGGG. GO SEE IT.
