That was a bizarre movie!
It's got a lot going for it, and a lot going on in it. Bong Joon-ho is a gifted and interesting filmmaker.
It's been a while but from what I remember it was not bad just bizarre. I think I saw that it's free with OnDemand so I may watch it again.
Anyway, no doubt there were some terrible meals on that train!
To this day the smell of any Greens cooking (cabbage, turnip, spinach, any of them) is enough to make me want to wretch, and eating them is even worse. That and canned Green Beans.
It's kind of nuts, for sure. Bong is really comfortable hitting all sorts of levels that are somewhat unusual in an American film.
Protein bars made with bugs, maybe?
The rest of your post sounds so gross, but these "scrunchions" - not so much.
I regret to inform you that we cannot be friends.
I'm a fan of Bong's films.
In this one - Tilda Swinton's take on Delores Umbridge meets Maggy Thatcher is gloriously gross and well done.
My mom's recipe for pork chops or pork ribs:
Place on baking sheet
Top with slice of onion and squirt of ketchup
Bake until gray and rubbery but be sure to remove from heat while all attached fat is stil white, solid and bouncy
She made great cookies and pies and cakes, and she coud make a beef pot roast that you'd strangle your own pets for, but what she did to pork could easily explain certain cultural restrictions.
I hope none got into the dam on that lake ... government cheese can stop up anything.
I always finish my plate and I can eat almost anything.
Your mime would make you steaks?? Cool.
One of my stepfather's favorite dishes was steak and kidney pie, and my Mom used to make it for him once or twice a year.
Cooked all afternoon - the house smelled like urine for hours on end. And then we had to eat the stuff.
Chicano family; every meal was an event. I don’t remember anything sucking. We didn’t do cauliflower or broccoli or greenbeans. We didn’t eat that stuff. Still don’t.
We do have this one aunt who insists on putting dogshit lima-beans in what is otherwise a fantastic chicken-salad. We’ve been telling her for years to knock it off but the bitch just won’t listen.
I'd be lying if I said they weren't tasty, but even crunchy chunks of golden pork fat couldn't salvage what was underneath. Plus they do have a tendency to shave years off your life.
What the heck is a 'Piggly Wiggly'??
Tuna Pig sounds like it would be the name of a particularly nasty Steel Panther song.
What do they do in Altoona when the moon above ain't bright?
In this world, there should never, ever be anything called Government Cheese.
