Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2010s Countdown

Honestly? I think it's the opposite. The subject matter seems awful. Facebook? A legal deposition? On paper it's ridiculous, and I thought as much when I heard of it. I honestly can't think of anyone...

Same on all counts. I thought it sounded moronic, and I can't believe how good it was/is. I think I've seen it three times and it's felt fresh and entertaining every single time.

Re: Buster Scruggs is more Terrifying the Anton Chigurh

Anyway, I like Buster Scruggs fairly well, even though I felt it was a lot more Good than Great, but I have a bizarre weakness for almost any entertainment that comes in relatively bite-sized forms....

You obviously can't say the scariest thing is the thing that would cause the most pain if it were real. That's just Pascal's Wager moved from theology to horror. But it's equally absurd to say...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2010s Countdown
