First, the standout in the class; and the one you should all make it your mission to destroy.
"I love that scene. Because it feels like no time has passed, even though a year has passed…It was as if we hadn’t seen each other for a year." - Andrew Garfield
Movies I’ve Seen in 2014 - The Skeleton Twins
Starring: Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig
Supporting: Luke Wilson, Ty Burrell
Directed by: Craig Johnson
Plot: After going 10 years without talking to each other, the Dean twins reconnect when Milo (Bill Hader), a gay, struggling actor living in LA, attempts suicide. While the initial first meeting was a little shaky, Maggie (Kristen Wiig), Milo’s twin still living in their hometown, dealing with her own demons, invites Milo to stay at her place for a while. Slowly, both twins come face to face with their inner struggles, the past, and what went wrong in their relationship.
Review: It is rare to find a dark comedy that truly finds the correct balance between heavy themes and deep material, as well as lighthearted jokes and actual, well, comedy. The Skeleton Twins is the first “dark comedy” I’ve seen in a while that manages to find the balance. Is it perfect, no, some scenes can often come across as cheesy or predictable, but as a whole, it’s a relatable story that really tugs at the heart strings all while making your stomach ache with laughter at the same time.
"Because I never saw my mother again she remains an absence to me, an empty space, an invisible half-remembered ghost. So even now I catch myself thinking that I’d run into her some day, like I’d be at a stop light, look over at the car next to me and there she’ll be. Scowling at me with disproval. Or I’ll spot her across on a crowded street or a train station. We’ll run towards each other like in one of those cheesy tv movies. She’ll hug me like a long lost lover then take my face into her long graceful hands, look me in the eyes and say: 'I'm here Kat, I'm here'.”
Beer honestly just tastes how I imagine urine to taste it is so rank and people are always like nah try this because this is special Beer and then it’s like oh ok urine with cinnamon in it great
