I think that’s oversimplifying Foote’s contribution. I thought (as a Northerner) it was interesting in how he described the (white) Southern culture in which he was raised, one in which even the Fourth of July wasn’t celebrated as it was seen as a reminder that their traitorous rebellion lost to the US.

Head to the the-avacado.org. A lot of old AV Clubbers there.

Makes me very concerned with how that Animaniacs reboot is gonna look whenever that’s supposed to come out (the new Looney Tune shorts for HBO Max vary between “obviously Flash” and… Read more

I think the other thing people forget, is he “has” the girl. She likes him and he likes her, he’s not trying to convince her he’s worth her time, he’s dealing with her baggage (and it turns out way more of his own) and so is she. It’s a subtle distinction, but I think it diminishes the prize aspect. It’s not a quest… Read more
