This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves lets us choose between spoofs, satires, or mockumentaries. There was once a time where spoofs were everywhere but achieving greatness with either of these three topics is very hard to pull off. I decided to take one film from each category to talk about.
1) Scary Movie
For my spoof, I go with this. Granted, these movies got terrible after the first two but it will never take away how hysterical the first Scary Movie was. This is how you do a great spoof. You can tell once they hit the 3rd one and had to start pulling from non horror films that they were seriously running out of ideas.
2) Jojo Rabbit
For my satire one of the best movies from 2019 is an easy pick. Jojo Rabbit is my favorite satire of all time (It was Tropic Thunder before this) I love everything about this movie.
3) 7 Days in Hell
Mockumentaries aren't as popular as the other two but this short one that Andy Samberg and Kit Harington did for HBO about a tennis rivalry is amazingly absurd.
