Yep. I’m finally getting around to reviewing Pushing Daisies. I essentially binge-watched the entire series about two months ago, but I never got around to posting my thoughts about the show due to various reasons (including, but not limited to, working on other projects, and general procrastination). But now I’m going to actually do it and finally finish this freaking movie challenge!
Co-authored with soontobeangel:
Four score and three years ago, our forefathers (meaning, us) set forth a new film challenge which challenged the very nature of film challenges.
Now in it’s third iteration, it finds itself in being the last iteration because the Apocalypse is nearly upon us. Dick Clark is dead, Kim Kardashian is dating Kanye, and our apartment is out of toilet paper… and something about a Mayan calendar.
So, we said to ourselves, “Selves, shouldn’t we make the most of the last bit of our lives and go out watching some fantastic films.” And our selves said, “No! That’s a really stupid idea!” And so we said to them, “Screw you selves! We’re going home!” (What we really meant to say was “go watch movies” but we never really liked our selves anyway, so who cares what they think of us?)
Here’s how this works. We challenge each other to watch movies that the other hasn’t seen but we think they should see. Then we review them, and get into heated arguments about why the other is totally wrong. In addition, we have added a short TV series to the challenge and a small number of classics that neither of us have seen, but probably should.
Thus we arrive at this moment, sitting at our desks randomly stringing a bunch of words together in the hope that they might make a little bit of sense. This is most likely a fruitless endeavor. And I’m thinking about giving up. I’ve probably lost all cognitive function and three years off my soul, so let’s get on with it.
