Fantastic Movies (2016)(March 8th)

DJ ROBO BISCUIT likes movies.  He enjoys watching them.  He enjoys pondering them.

Spotlight.  Spotlight was a good movie.  It had my attention all the way through.  It was about the “Spotlight team” at the Boston Globe.   They investigated the Catholic Church.  I know it sounds crazy but … there were Priests molesting kids.  And there were A LOT of priests doing it.   Gotta recommend the movie.   SPOTLIGHT!

 

The End of the Tour.  This is a movie about David Foster Wallace.  He was a genius.   And he committed suicide.   The movie is the interview between David Lipsky and David Foster Wallace.   Obviously, artists become more famous after they die.  Based on DFW’s work, he had genius qualities.  Also, he was not a perfect person by any regards but as a character study the story is very interesting!   I gotta recommend The End of the Tour.

 

Me and Earl and The Dying Girl.  This film was excellent.  The style was great.  Also, be ready for some FEELS.  It will hit you.  It serves as a good platform for an interracial friendship and the tender relationship between an awkward teen and a Dying Girl.  I really enjoyed the film.  It is definitely not your typical high school movie.  Two Thumbs up (and as a tribute to Tim Heidecker “I gotta give it 5 Bags of Popcorn.”)

The Talented Mr. Ripley.   Fascinating but a little bit sickening.  The film was definitely interesting.   I find it interesting due to the idea of the relationships and also, the movie is possible because the players within the film are all part of the wealthy elite.

Honorable Mention:

Adult World.  The movie has charm.  I enjoyed the soundtrack.  I liked the way this film FELT.  I have a little crush on Emma Roberts.  Definitely a great film for recent college grads, I think the film brings value in that way.

Things that are Awesome (March 7th)(Mon)

DJ ROBO BISCUIT letting the people know things that are awesome.

Thing number one: Star Wars Clone Wars (Genndy Tartakovsky) General Grievous vs Jedi (HIGH level of awesome on this one.  Completely over the top fight with coolness to the Max!)

Thing number two: Rick and Morty.  The show is a work of brilliance.  If you appreciate science fiction then this is a fantastic show!

Thing number three: Fabrice Santoro.  Santoro was a professional tennis player and people called him “The Magician.”  He had a two-handed forehand slice and he would cut players to death.  Marat Safin said that seeing your name in the draw next to his was like being told “you were about to die.”

Thing number four:  Minato vs Tobi.  The Fourth Hokage faces off against the Masked Man in a fast and epic fight.  The battle truly pays respect to the speed of Ninja fights (and of course, to The Yellow Flash)

Thing number five: David Foster Wallace.  DFW is awesome.  A modern writer who was a genius of his craft.  Truly sad that he lost his life to depression (suicide).  Check out “Infinite Jest” or his movie “The End of the Tour.”

Thing number six: Noodle World by DJ ROBO BISCUIT.  It is a rising star and beautiful display of satire.
