    Default Indeed I do <3 Huckabees

    I just watched I <3 Huckabees. I highly recommend it.

    I'd rather not give a synopsis of the movie, partially because I'd rather not give away the whole movie, moreso because as with all well done movies, the synopsis is not what really matters.

    It politely reminded me that self-honesty is very important. I'm glad that I watched this movie when I did, because I'd been thinking alot about the nature of honesty. Of course, if I'm going to be honest with myself, I have to admit that I think this coincidence to be meaningful, and that I also think it is not. Therefore, all I am left with is that it is meaningful, because I believe it to be so. That's life though.

    Nothing is okay, so it's okay. If it doesn't have any meaning in the end, then we're free to give meaning to whatever we see fit.

    The thought is very freeing.

    So all in all, I'd highly recommend the movie I <3 Huckabees.

    This is the existential comedy, not an endorsement of the ultra religiously conservative presidential candidate, right?

    Really? You liked that movie?

    It didn't strike you as pretentious, or hollow, or so much nothing about nothing presented by non-entities? The dialogue didn't crawl about on your skin like some apologetic larva? The characterisation didn't make your own vomit feel queasy? You didn't cry blood, sweat bile or burst a single blood vessel?

    At least you must have seen it for free, right? I mean no single human being could pay money to watch it, sit through it and enjoy the whole experience, right? You weren't just tortured beforehand and the only way you could stop being tortured would be if you saw the movie, were you?

    But what do I know, I could only watch the first forty minutes before my own brain rebelled causing massive haemorrhages in itself forcing me into a coma for eight weeks.

    Great thread!!
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I hated this movie and I usually enjoy independent (but mainstream) dramas.

    I could go on for days saying what I didn't like about this movie. But I'll just defer to Colmena's succinct review.

    I did, however, enjoy Naomi Watts dressed as sexy Uncle Sam. BOY did I.
