What a funny week. Partly because of that tv series Community. Donald Glover, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Chevy Chase are just amazing. After watching a few episodes everything is so funny for the following couple of hours. Donald Glover so unexpected,  Alison Brie working so many dimensions into the stereotype, Chevy Chase’s pathetic self parody, Ken is a comic genius, the scripting is fluid, very audience and self aware, it feels like they’re sitting there in the room watching it with you as they’re writing it. Incessant references. There are  a few continuity issues here and there but I guess that comes with the territory. Being a comedy and all. Who ever reinvented Chevy is a genius as well. I used to not like him that much. But, in this, he has some of the funniest moments.
So much happiness.
I don’t really have anything real to say this week so here’s a list of films that will help you win friends and influence people. Actually, in true newbie form, these are my favourite films in order of importance. I can vouch for each of these films.
You know it’s handy to have such a thing to keep the film buffs I MEAN FREAKS >:| off your back. Telling you how to think about everything and being so dismissive. By the way it wasn’t an easy task to hit fifty. And I must confess that I have never seen Metropolis but I imagine I have, and I imagine it would be in my top fifty. One day I will see it… Embassy? I’m asking you with my brain. Ranking is fairly accurate. Same with the year.
