    The Beautiful Blonde from Bashful Bend

    ★★★½

    "You ought to be ashamed of yourself doing that to another girl. I mean I don't care what you do to a man but to another girl!"

    Preston Sturges' western spoof manages some good laughs along the way, even if it is one of his weaker efforts. Overall pretty pleasing for what turned out to be his last American production. Betty Grable was delightful as a sharpshooting conwoman with a heart of gold as she goes on the run after accidentally shooting a judge in the ass (twice!!).

    Did not expect to get a reaction shot of Hitler in that montage. Preston Sturges, you’re wild for that one.

    ★★★

    I’m a big fan of this movie implying that Mr. Bean fucks. Not too many kids movies you can say that about.

    Ratatouille

    ★★★★★

    “The new needs friends.”

    When you boil it down, Bird’s script and the movie as a whole are just such a fantastic love letter to art, consumption, and criticism. So much so that A.O. Scott built a significant portion of his excellent Better Living Through Criticism around Ratatouille and, in particular, Anton Ego. The depths and delights of this movie always surprise.
