    My Octopus Teacher

    I wanted to check here to get a sense of how this piece of beautifully photographed, anthropomorphized garbage became an Oscar frontrunner and instead the main Letterboxd review page for this documentary is 50 people making the exact same two jokes.

    Yes. The octopus is more his friend than his teacher.

    Yes. He wants to fuck the octopus and it's gross.

    You're all hilarious.

    Sincere question: Is "My Octopus Teacher" intended as a parody of the countless nature documentaries in…

    Coming 2 America

    [This does contain spoilers, but like... what's the point in caring?]

    Over the years, I assume that there have been at least 50 commissioned "Coming to America" sequel scripts and, like a cannibalistic serial killer's refrigerator, bits and pieces of almost all of those scripts are scattered throughout "Coming 2 America," distributed without much interest in narrative momentum, character coherence or any particular cleverness, acted by a cast that feels less reunited and more on-loan from Madame Tussauds.
