Julie Taymor's Titus is a masterpiece and still probably my favorite film adaptation of a Shakespeare play. Beautiful visuals, incredible cast, supremely violent and darkly funny all at the same time. The way any good Shakespeare tragedy film should be.

I had to go back and watch the pie scene, and the shot of the pies cooling in the window, curtains billowing and Vivere kicks in is easily one of my favorites film moments.

The best joke in 10 Things I Hate About You is that one of the cliques at the school is The Cowboys in a bunch of scenes there's just some random extras in the background doing cowboy stuff like lasso tricks and it's barely commented upon by anyone.


10/10 cinematic masterpiece

According to my dad there was cowboy clique at his highschool in Arizona in the 60s, but even then it was sort of on its way out.

Pretty sure a high school in the 60s in Arizona had a cowboy clique because, well, it was actually a thing.

The high school I graduated from had a Future Farmers of America chapter, all who wore the blue jacket with a big logo on the back. Smallish city in the middle of Texas, so it was more of a career option than a fashion statement.

Maybe so, in this case it was wannabe movie cowboys though, at least according to my 50 year old second hand info.

There was always one kid who would drive a riding lawnmower to school on those days. They would spend the whole day complaining that they had to start driving at 2 am in order to get to school on time.

Every other American film and TV show was a western for like 50 years.

The first westerns were even made contemporary with actual stagecoach robberies and gunslinging.

They were cranking out samurai silent films in the 20's. Probably the same for westerns. Sergio Leone and the spaghetti western genre credit Yojimbo as a jumping-off point, though.

my point, dumb and shitposty as it is, is that samurai predate film, while westerns kind of defined film as a medium to some extent so if you're gonna chicken-and-egg this thing i tend to fall on the side of western omelettes

And it’s not a small overlap. First western was arguably 1903’s Great Train Robbery.

The Indian Wars didn’t end till 1924.

Any autographical book for young children titled "The worst day of my life" without the plot element mentioned on the cover as an advisory was probably surpassed by some event in the author's life within months after the events that were described.

Seanbaby's still good, and most of the guest writers are alright, I just find Brockway's stuff... I dunno, unfinished. His articles always feel like they need someone to come in and refine or add punchlines. YMMV.

Who even makes a comedy scene around giving someone CPR to begin with? If you've ever had to give someone CPR, you wouldn't find anything funny about it. More like "oh god I'm hoping against hope that this person will come back to life." One of the worst loving things you can ever have to do.

Hacky CPR comedy scenes are super common because you're totally, like, making out with the person. Grody! Sometimes part of the joke is the person doesn't actually need CPR.

Want to see a person fake needing CPR and then get their rib cage flattened out.

And then not even get the "making out" cause rescue breaths are only resorted to when enough time has passed that the oxygen in your blood is likely depleted.

Rescue breaths suck and are often worse than doing nothing because most people will overinflate the patient’s lungs and the increased chest pressure makes the compressions less effective. Not worth it for the little benefit a bunch of 16 percent O2 gives when the person’s brain is in low power mode anyway.

Ally McBeal was one of the things that convinced me to become bulimic as a kid. Not the only thing, but it certainly made strong arguments that an eating disorder would be a good idea.
Absolutely toxic show.
