Soliloquies are lovely, but how many can you really have in a single movie? People talk to each other, people have conversations, people interact with one another. It's the way it works in real life and it's the way it works in the movies.
So, because February is approaching and because relationships are important, today "Lass is More" looks at the relationships seen in three different movies, "Chi-Raq," "Meet the Patels," and "Burnt."
Have you ever watched a movie and thought "that could never happen to me?" Sure, we all have. Why do movies have such trouble identifying those moments? What makes them so hard to see?
The otherwise brilliant "Straight Outta Compton" has a big one. We discuss on today's episode.
Welcome to the new year. It is a time of change, a time of upheaval. A time of approaching things different.
We regularly hear about revolutionary change at this time of year, but that's not how Josh works. He prefers incremental change; incremental improvements. Take the movie "Sicario." It is a fantastic cops vs. drug traffickers story, the exact same kind you've seen before. But it's also better than the ones you've seen before.
Why? Incremental improvements to a proven formula.
