Let's put up a movie post!
I recently watched a whole bunch of things, which I'll note at some point in the future. But specifically I wanted to share this little fun clip advertisement I saw for the movie Red Notice. Red Notice was apparently a big Netflix movie, and, like a lot of theirs, felt like it was rushed a bit, maybe needed another rewrite to tighten stuff up, etc. Kind of made up for the lack of writing by just having fun people doing fun things. And in the end it was good enough, because of that.
Anyway, what have y'all thought of Netflix movies (and similar?).
Aaaaaaand... also apparently I can't get the clip in this post. Half baked. I'll try the comments.
What are you watching?
They're still making movies, right?
Fun aggregation: essentially, "The Best of [everything] - 2015" ranked according to number of mentions on critic's year-end best-of lists. You could probably go further with it, ranking according to average placement on lists, but for CoC purposes, this is more than enough info:
Carol - 82% of lists
Spotlight - 77%
Inside Out - 73%
Mad Max: Fury Road - 73%
Master of None - 83% of lists
Fargo - 83%
Mr. Robot - 75%
Mad Men - 75%
Between the World and Me - 80% of lists
A Little Life - 60%
The Story of the Lost Child - 60%
Kendrick Lamar, To Pimp A Butterfly - 100% of lists
Vince Staples, Summertime ’06 - 63%
Carly Rae Jepsen, Emotion - 63%
And just for fun, because we at the WGOM are so hip, tied for fourth place are few the Citizenry crowed about this year:
Courtney Barnett, Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit - 58%
Joanna Newsom, Divers - 58%
