  • ‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs was surprisingly non-political. It is a dark humor film by the Coen brothers that depicts several short stories set in the ‘Wild West.’ There is some silliness, gore, and drama throughout the entire movie, but very little political correctness.

    For instance, there are a few scenes with warrior American Indians, and refreshingly enough they behave how you’d imagine warrior Indians would behave! There is a story involving a timid woman heading west in need of men’s help (these characters also openly admit their belief in God and it wasn’t satirical). Plus, there are no handicapped-hispanic-transgender protagonists, there are no head strong women beating up hardened cow boys, and there is no black on white revenge porn that was so prominent in Django Unchained.

    Roma falls into a weird personal subcategory of films: The movies I admire greatly but don’t—can’t—quite love.

    See ya, 2018. Wouldn’t want to be ya. Who would? The year was so crazy that even Vincent Van Gogh would have suggested it get a hold of itself. Terrible fires in California. Terrible cold out east. A Tesla Roadster is driving around in space. Certain eels are compulsively swimming into the noses of certain […]

    (”The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    Hollywood measures success in two ways: One, the amount of money it rakes in; and two, the number of Oscars its movies take home.

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
