This episode was wonderful.

Saw THE ZERO THEOREM the other day - I liked it overall, but I thought it was mixed.  The scenes that criticized modern technology came across more like an old man yelling “Get offa ma lawn!” than a substantial commentary. That said, I loved that so much of this world was actually built rather than generated on a computer - it made the movie look like classic Terry Gilliam films, which I adore. I also loved the anti-religious themes and the message that one should take charge of one’s own life, rather than waiting for some higher being or organization to give one direction or meaning. The movie meanders a lot and the narrative is less traditionally structured than most of Gilliam’s work, which I assume was intended to help drive home the message that life is meaningless and chaotic on its own, hence why you need to actively create meaning for yourself. Whether that makes the movie enjoyable to watch is up for debate, but it’s certainly consistent.

Another movie I need to see this month!

My thoughts while watching “Kill The Moon,” in order:
-Oh nice this is like something straight out of Classic WHO!
-Hey tough lady astronaut, right on!
-Wait… is this a metaphor for abortion? But the Brits are sane about that issue what is going on.
-So maybe this is just the usual compassion-over-violence/”everybody lives!” Doctor WHO attitude and not “pro-life” propaganda?  I guess?
-THE BUTTON SAYS ABORT WTF
-Fuck yeah Clara! Though, if this is an abortion metaphor, it’s both perfect that the Doctor was super patronizing and that Clara was pissed enough to leave him over it.  Hmm.

I just realized - HAPPY DAYS started in 1974 and THAT ’70s SHOW started in 1998.  Doesn’t that mean we should be getting a popular, mainstream-yet-funny sitcom about the ’90s any day now? I’m… kinda looking forward to it?
