Time for It to Get Weird
We’re back doing the thing after a week off. Trying out some new things and getting back to the roots of the traditions, odd nights and memories we create along the way.
No better way than taking a trip down the scarred path of awkwardness and watching the movies with juuussst a little too much raunch or not over-the-top action. It’s gonna get weird this week.
The ultimate question of movie watching comes from treating it like swimming: Are you going to take it easy or just jump off the deep end? In a world before cell phones, disappearing messages and probably more than a fair share of NC-17 worth of images, there’s still corners of the cinematic world where the first litany of cuss words, bare skin or buckets of gore resonate.
One night can change your life, right? At the edge of adulthood, whether the plot of the movie or not, some flicks and the first watch resonate for no other reason than this: How many times are they going to cuss? Yep. The symphony of f-bombs and beyond, litany of SOBs and shocking amount of jokes about the most sacred person around: MOM. Yes, the R-Rated comedy experience is one to savor and only comes around once-in-a-lifetime.
