    "I think I was too stupid to understand this" - man at the end of the screening

    Sometimes it's interesting to try and break down a movie to "get" it. In things like this, it's better to think about what the movie makes you think about. I love a movie that is like a ride inside my own mind, since my anxiety and introspective nature find myself there frequently.

    Memoria is about the sounds of things around us, that sound…

    Movies don’t change over time, we do. 

    Not sure how many times I’ve seen this film. I’ve only seen it once since joining Letterboxd in 2015. I was a much different person November 2016. I hadn’t fallen in love yet. Not for real. I didn’t get my heart shattered yet. I was lonely and that’s what attracted me to this movie. I first saw this when I was 18, having absolutely no idea who I was or what I was…

    This is just a ton of fun. People (misogynists) just don’t like to see women have fun and succeed!!! The alien scene was batshit nuts I loved it. 

    It does make me sad to realize bubblegum pop star vehicles just don’t exist anymore. I want more!! (well I need bubblegum pop to come back too!!)

    ★★★★½

    This is such a special movie. Really of its own flavor. There are plenty of films you can point to that are similar, but I don't think there is another Mermaids out there. A movie unapologetically about a horny teenage girl, but is never gross about it. A movie about a mother doing her damnedest to be a good mom when she is an awfully flawed person (believably played by Cher like 15 years older than her character.) Bob Hoskins is believable for Cher to want to date him because he is so damn charming and corny.

    Reasons why Letterboxd should take this film more seriously:

    - Ron Howard's best film. Can you think of something better? I can't.
    - One of three Oscar noms Jim Carrey was robbed of.
    - I'm sorry but the script is funny as hell and makes this trainwreck so pleasing.
    - Utter madness on the screen.
    - ORIGINAL SONG "WHERE ARE YOU CHRISTMAS" SANG BY THE TALENTED FAITH HILL (and co written by the Queen of Christmas herself, Mariah Carey)
