    "That's true though, love will bite your ass."

    I'm less of a Coens fan than pretty much everyone I know, but if you like their '90s output, you will probably love this. Yes, there's more of a queer and feminist slant to this than the typical Coen film, but it's also pretty dated feeling.

    "Why can't things stay the same?"

    A quiet and delightful mediation on work, life, and beauty.

    I just adored it. ❤️

    "Weyland got y'all sittin' nice and pretty."

    Also very similar to the other shorts in this collection, but this one is not super well shot, written, or directed either.

  • Alien: Specimen

    Alien: Specimen

    ★★★½

    "There's something in here, you've got to get us out!"

    Simple but effective. It's funny how similar a lot of these 40th anniversary shorts are, but at least this one has a different ending.

    Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

    I don't think I fully "got it," but I really, really dug it.

    How come other countries can do animated features for adults, and when America tries it we just get Sausage Party?

    Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus

    ★★★½

    "I ate a baby there!"

    Some things don't change much over time and that's exactly the way people like it. As far as tone and intent Invader Zim hasn't changed at all and fans are going to love that. The major change here is the art direction and design, and that's all greatly improved!

    I'm not even a huge fan of this series and I was pretty into this: Some of the jokes are really great, there's some animation surprises throughout, and I never thought I'd say this but, I think I'd even watch another Invader Zim series if it continued from here!
