So there’s this movie called “Incredibly loud and extremely close.” The trailers are playing on TV right now and they’re bumming out my wife something fierce. She couldn’t believe that they would make a movie where Tom Hanks dies in 911.
She was only half kidding, but I really do see her point. The whole movie and the book they were based on are toxically manipulative. The worst to happen in America ever is used as a shitty little trick to get people to care about what looks to be a paper thin too-cute little story.
And anyhow, everybody knows that’s not what happens when Tom Hanks dies. Tom Hanks goes out killing Nazis and it’s somehow bad-ass and over-the-top cornball at the same time.
