WB executive: The Youth will love this easter egg to Larry Clark's 'Bully' (2001)
SPACE JAM DIRECTOR: The Eye of Sauron will drink Michael's Secret Stuff. The fiery pupil shall dilate. Kids will recognize as an homage to the heroin injection shot from Aranofsky's Requiem For a Dream.

WB EXEC: Brilliant.
SPACE JAM DIRECTOR: ...Realizing what he's done, Elmer Fudd will attempt to cut out his own tongue, just like in-

WB EXEC: Oldboy! Youtubers will go nuts for that, put it in!
Now I'm just remembering all the references to really dark cinema in Tiny Toons and Animaniacs.

Finally watching Chernobyl. So, SO glad I didn't queue this under the Former.
I like that they portray Pripyat as a quite tight-knit, vibrant (and distinctly Soviet) community. Avoiding the grim stereotypes about the era...to underscore the scale of the tragedy that was thrust upon them by incompetent, unaccountable, narrative-obsessed government stooges.
Amazed the guy who wrote Scary Movie 3 & 4 scripted this. Never hold back, aspiring writers. Embrace your schlock impulses and keep writing and see where it all takes you. Hamlet with werewolves? Fucking go for it.

Dead serious. How hard would it be for Democrats to target 40 blood-red congressional districts with candidates who say every last crazy Pavlovian Q-slogan GOP primary voters respond to, win a bunch of seats in the midterms and have them immediately defect upon taking office?
As an institution which grooms its own candidates, the GOP is nonexistent. It's purely a protection racket for whoever brands themselves as the biggest Protocols-adjacent lib-owner to Facebook-addicted Xoomers.

Unless there's some federal law I'm unaware of, infiltrate this shit
It wouldn't even matter if you have some documented past as a Democrat. It certainly didn't for Trump!

Just been on the verge of tears that never manifest as I load up my calendar with any event that could even remotely involve some combination of beer, fried food, roller coasters or sunburn.

I hate it so much. A haunted roller coaster of death and systemic racism.
Just the ugliest, most nonsensical piece of public malignant infrastructure I've ever had the misfortune of traversing and seeing it be steadily excised is so very satisfying.

Being out and about on Memorial Day has been a solid reminder that the primary fantasy sold by the Fast & Furious movies is the myth that cool cars are owned by cool people.
The main villains of Fast 10 should be a crew of divorced guys in golf clothes who use their Corvettes to steal a Stealth bomber.
Casino Royale was brilliant because the first time we see Craig's Bond just cruising he's in a rented Ford Focus or whatever.

Then he wins the Aston Martin from some lame McCloskey-like arms dealer who neglects his wife.

Craig earned his cool.

This is really important. It subtracts from the credibility of journalists to be seen saying 'Skeletor seized the Declaration of Independence' with the same dour cadence you report on the Capitol being seized, and comic books are full of fictional journalists for world building.
The only memorable instance of the above was the McLaughlin Group bit in Independence Day and they didn't even talk about aliens.
Okay I'll allow Larry King in Ghostbusters but none of you at CNN can manage a line read like "some maintain that these paranormal eliminators in New York are the cause of it all."
