Film Friday • Fargo.



Earlier this week, I (luckily) had a few days off from my retail job and baby sitting gig thanks to the snowy weather. Don't get me wrong, I love my jobs, but it was really nice to have a few days to catch up on shop work, laundry, and sweatpants-wearing. While doing all of those things, I had a chance to watch a bunch of new things on Netflix. I caught up with "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," had my first "White Christmas" viewing of the season (yes, it's winter already as far as I'm concerned), finally got to see "There Will Be Blood" and "Fargo," both of which I've wanted to see for a very long time! "Fargo" is only the second Coen Brothers movie I've seen yet (the first was "True Grit"), and I can't wait to find time to see more! "Fargo" was awesome. I remember when I was younger and the movie first came out, everyone was talking about the "wood chipper" scene. Here I am 17 years later, and it did not disappoint. When I watch movies when I'm supposed to be working on shop or blog things, I gauge how good the movie is by how much or little work I get done while I watch. If I get a lot done, that means the movie wasn't for me, but if I get nothing done that means it was a winner. "Fargo" was definitely a winner! ;)

Edited to add: I spoke with the creator of this print, and learned that the Coen brothers actually own that original print! How cool is that??

  2. I watched Fargo for the first time last month! Never seeing Fargo was one of my shameful secrets... Really happy to have crossed that film off the list. And, yeah, all I knew about the moving going into it was something crazy happens with a wood chipper... yikes.

    Please tell me you've seen The Big Lebowski? That's by far my favorite Coen Brothers movie. Burn After Reading was also pretty interesting, as was No Country for Old Men. True Grit and Oh Brother, Where Art Thou are definitely worth a watch, too.

    Intolerable Cruelty blew, though.

    1. I haven't seen "The Big Lebowski" yet either, Sierra! I'm so behind, I know!

      Thanks for the tips, girl! <3
