One of the things Josh truly dislikes is the term "guilty pleasure." If you like something, stand up and shout it as loud as you possibly can. It doesn't matter if it's the worst sort of reality show or the dumbest sort of movie. It's not wrong.
Take "Bad Boys" and "Bad Boys II" as an example. Josh doesn't call them a guilty pleasure, instead he basks in his love of Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett.
It isn't wrong to want to sit down and watch a movie that is going to do nothing but provide a sort of comforting escapism, especially after a weekend full of awful news reports. We don't advocate permanently burying your head in the sand and avoiding the world at large, but taking a break isn't the worst thing you could do.
For Josh, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" provided just that sort of escape this past weekend.
Do forgive Josh if he sounds a little like he's suffering from a cold with this minisode, it's only because he's suffering from a cold.
The important thing to note is not the cold, but rather the character behind it. Yes, we're still on character this week as we look at "Before we go" and "The End of the Tour." The films are strikingly similar in the fact that they are mostly just two people talking to each other, but who those people are and how they interact is what makes one of the movies enjoyable and one of them not.
On today's minisode we look at two different Luc Besson movies, "The Professional" and "The Fifth Element." Even if they both feature Gary Oldman, these are completely different movies. The important thing to note though is that even if they are different, they both work for the same reason -- a focus on creating interesting characters.
Daniel Junge has an Oscar win and another nomination. Today, he stops by "Lass is More" to discuss his latest documentary, "A Lego Brickumentary." We also talk "Inside Out" and "Aladdin."
The key here with all these things is that while they may be primarily intended for kids, they're all great for adults as well. You'll find that the same is true for all the best kids' stuff.
