Do you guys remember Toys? The movie with Robin Williams. It’s not the worst movie ever, but it’s… not the best. Hans Zimmer did some of the music for it. It has several great actors in it. In spite of this, it kind of blows. It’s one of those terrible movies that I will watch because the pleasant nature of the actors makes it tolerable. It’s kind of an Xmas movie. I mean it starts with an xmas play. I never remember that about it, but it does. It’s kind of like how annoying people call Die Hard an Xmas movie. The reason I bring it up is that it’s on right now, I’m watching it, and I can’t understand how it got made. There are parts of it that are so fucking awful… I think the thing that bugs me about it the most is that it isn’t cohesive in vision. It goes from realistic to this insane cartoon aesthetic over and over. They didn’t make it cartoon enough to work. One thing that does work is that Williams truly seems sad, which sells the opening. I assume it’s because he’s not having a good time. Also I like that they address why Micheal Gambon has the wrong accent for an American general. LL Cool J is in this fucking movie!! Everyone is acting their hearts out too.
Anyway, whatever. I drew this sketch for valentimes. linkity link Blippity bloopity blap.
Do you remember that movie where Dudley Moore is an elf? The bad guy is… John Lithgow. They make special magical candy canes, I think. It reminds me of toys, except I remember it actually being better. You never see that movie anymore. You see fucking Elf. Which is a better movie than toys, but I’m not sure about the other one. I don’t like it but I can’t compare them properly because of my hazy memory of the Dudley more one. I should look it up. Santa Claus. That’s the title.
