welcome 2 moviefone
honestly I’m thinking about this post again and this just happens with like every goddamn movie the two of them see, together or otherwise. dirk comes out of literally every movie he watches (except the sbahjs, which are just relics of the old universe tbh) with a laundry list of complaints a mile long and jake just comes out of every movie he watches with a rambled list of things he loved and a bet that the sequel’s going to be even better than the first one!
and there’s something just weirdly contagious about jake’s enthusiasm. while dirk will never change his mind that the movies are bad (dirk thinks like literally every movie ever made [again, except sbahj films] is bad, it’s a problem) but he does kind of stop complaining and just scuff his foot into the dirt and smile a little. yeah jake, he says, trying not to let jake see him grinning. that part where the evil dude literally turned into the ghostbusters logo was pretty rad. yeah jake, it was pretty neat that the nice guy was actually the evil dude all along. yeah, jake. something about jake’s eternal enthrallment and happiness about even the worst movies humanly imaginable (but also, the best movies humanly imaginable) just makes dirk tingle from head to toes to be a part of.
