An honor just to be nominated for the mailbag
Ruben Gallego, what parents really care about, AI in movies, and skyscrapers vs. rowhouses
I feel like we got a pretty great slate of Oscar nominees, where even the nominated movies I’m not so high on are mostly in the categories of “didn’t like as much as my friends” (Everything Everywhere All At Once) or “I was mildly disappointed relative to the scale of the talent involved” (Banshees of Inisherin) rather than the wtf zone. Speaking of which, has anyone at all anywhere in the known universe watched Coda in the past six months? Shaking my head.
