Nah. Walter Huston, though, who also starred in Griffith's Abraham Lincoln.

The best political movie is Gabriel Over the White House, a right wing fantasy made at the start of the Depression that posited how amazing the United States would be if the angel Gabriel took over the President's body and turned the country into a military dictatorship. It is completely sincere and totally bonkers.

I would like to watch this.

Looks like someone blocked it on YouTube, but here it is for sale on Amazon.

And I should correct myself since the film is also a left wing fantasy of the government saving everyone through total control and obedience; apparently FDR was even given a copy of the script and endorsed it.

I will. First I need to figure out exactly what my goals will be and have five minutes at home to put it together. I've been really, really busy. I totally will, though.

22 Jump Street was absolutely hilarious. Holy loving poo poo. And now I want my ex to watch it because the bromance was so intense I actually felt like it gave me some perspective on that relationship.

That isn't really a joke.

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are the new Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn. I don't know if I'm joking or not either.

They shouldn't make a 23 Jump Street, but I would love to see more movies with those two.

Didn't someone mention this quite recently, with someone in their class thinking that it was a real historical biopic rather than alternate reality?

In terms of their particular wheelhouse, or in terms of how they get/pick roles?

Edit: someone should make a movie where Michael Cera plays Melissa McCarthy's son. Get on that, people of Hollywood.

I really wish Melissa McCarthy would stop being in such lovely movies. She's in the rare position of being an overweight woman who Hollywood thinks can open a movie but she's just in the worst poo poo. I'd like to blame that on Hollywood and the types of roles they write for women like her, but I'm pretty sure she cowrote Tammy with her Husband who also directed the movie, so really this is all on her.

I talked about her a buncha pages back, but she could be a great actress who is really sincere in here roles if she didn't play a loving horrible human in every movie she makes.

They're both fairly one-note, but in completely opposite ways: McCarthy's comically fat, Cera's comically skinny, she's brash and he's quiet, etc.

I've said this a million times but, damnit, Cera did work really hard spending 2013 trying to work against the type of role he's always cast as and did a pretty fantastic job of it.

You're watching a NatGeo documentary, of course they're not going to go all-in on how creepy these people are, because they're initially broadcasting on some NatGeo channel. You can't show the extreme misogyny behind imported wives without disturbing a large portion of the audience, who only want to see an entertaining piece of information on the subject. The audience wants to be a little grossed-out because that's where the interest is, but they don't want to watch something too soul-crushing, in which case they'll simply turn it off.

Then why the gently caress make a documentary about it in the first place. Like, that's really not a subject you can kid-glove without it just coming off as really really... off. I Think We're Alone Now levels of creepiness are the baseline for it.

Also, best political film is Tetsuo: The Iron Man, suck it nerds

He did Magic Magic, Crystal Fairy, This is the End and the fourth season of Arrested Development. In all of which he played completely different types of really irritating, unlikable douchebags. AD was obviously closest to what he was known for but even then he kind of made George Micheal alot more like his father.

He also did some really odd stuff on his youtube channel.

It is a classic symbol of racism in America. This is where the white man has taken the black man and put him between two buns. And then dumped ketchup on him.

I always felt like Eisenberg was a poor man's Michael Cera and have kind of resented that he's gone on to huge fame while Cera is sort of fading away. But I haven't seen The Double or Night Moves yet so I'll reserve final judgment until then.
