Re: “Gerald's Game serves its hair-raising purpose

I hope you were assigned to review this and that it wasn't a free choice of your time. I'd rather you review an oldie and goodie one.

You need to get lives, both of you.
Are you into zombies, too ?

I've watched Pee-wee's big adventure over 150 times. I will now appreciate it even more.

Re: “The birth of camp: Unpacking Pee-wee's Big Adventure

Oh, please. Motifs, Brechtian ideas, and analysis of sexuality? Stop trying to be so intellectual. If you want intellectual, how about we view a movie featuring the Saturday morning kids' show host through Occam's razor. The simplest explanation of Pee Wee's Big Adventure is that it was about a guy who has lots of zany fun and yes lives in the world of imagination. Nothing more or less.
And yes, he is funny. Not everyone has the same sense of humor. Maybe most jokes in the movie can be appreciated by kids. I'm sure there are people who- I'm sure most kids wouldn't appreciate your jokes, Mr. Brooks.
Anyway, try to tone it down and not feel compelled to make something simple so nuanced and adult. Your approach was with a razor much different than Occam's and you nearly cut up my childhood hero.
