yeah, that's what I meant when I said I can see both side.
Me too, I don't think that is really the same issue as such, it neither agrees or contradicts what I am saying. I'm just talking about the cheapness and also the dubiousness of having silly looking people just to laugh at.interesting but i can't help rooting for the losers
Haven't heard this point brought up before, but you are right on. Conforming content to form in a way.what unnerves me about these trends is that, particularly online, it seems like its the word/phrases themselves that motivate speech. mimetic desire. you see the new phrase and then think up something that will allow you to use it in context.
i watched a bit of julie and celine go boating last night bt its very very long and confusing and also i didnt see one single boat.

Ladies going on adventures in the city isn’t an inherently innovative plot. Wacky run-ins and the meshing of the uptight with the absurd are some of the small delights embraced by dozens of films. But Celine and Julie Go Boating and Desperately Seeking Susan are too similar to ignore their shared cinematic DNA.
The BFI’s video essay explains how Rivette’s masterpiece inspired the ‘80s favorite, their homage to Alice in Wonderland, and their magic (literal and figurative).
Brief yet beautiful, the essay celebrates friendship as deeply as the two films, which continue to inspire female group comedies to this day. Girls Trip, a raunchy, goofy adventure that embraces similar character relationships, owes as much to these two films for continuing a movie tradition as it does to its modern script and zany acting.
