Find Me On:
Even Khal Drogo had a better sense of humor.
Even better, there are 28 different songs up. Some of them have guest spots.
I’d swap Ruffalo with Ewan McGregor — who won me back after I saw Beginners.
My mom once told me “you should never be sexually attracted to anything you keep in your pocket.” I try to live my live by that philosophy.
Isn’t this basically what all metal is like?
Now if you could draw out that explanation to take up 20 minutes of screen time, you could be a writer for the Walking Dead.
Hmm…would that imply that he’s about to stop reading? I don’t think we can go that far, this isn’t a Michael Bay movie.
My idea for a TV show is 45 minutes of a man sitting in a chair reading a book. I don’t want to give everything away, but in the season finale he may even chuckle lightly to himself and/or furrow his brow at one point.
I think with The Killing and The Walking Dead AMC has brought something to TV that we really haven’t seen before: the pretentiously bad show.
It may not be wise or particularly balanced of me, but I like to imagine the Wire actors’ new roles as ghostly emanations of what their lives would have been like had they not died.
Like, Wallace, if he had lived, would somehow find his way to Texas where he’d be taken under the wing of one Coach Taylor and moulded into a man while struggling through some of the emotional problems of his childhood.
Bodie cleans up his act and joins Fed-Ex, apparently, as a delivery man.
Stringer Bell moves to London, nails the British accent to assume a new identity, and becomes an emotionally volatile detective.
McNulty marries the grandaughter of Charlie Chaplin, travels back in time, and hosts a BBC news hour (OK, this one doesn’t work so well).
Ugh, this guy is the worst. I bet he is on some Ayn Rand shit here. One of her awful characters does a similar thing in one of her awful novels.
It’s funny that Sam could probably just stop all of the town’s problems if he decided to take a trip to the friggin zoo. But, no it’s just too far a drive and gas is like four bucks a gallon nowadays.
I was just waiting for the scene when Captain America decapitates Kim Jong-Il with his shield then slams a red bull. How disappointing…
Little known fact: the “A” on Captain America’s forehead actually stands for “Adultery.”
Yes! What a good description. And, she does that face to the camera as well. It is the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen a human being do. What is it? She squints her eyes and sucks the air through her mouth like the worst, creepiest porn actress and then fidgets in her seat as if to dislodge something obstructing one of her nether orifices and then makes a face as if she is about to “unhinge her jaw” and devour everyone.
I’m wonder, like in season 1, if someone is going to venture deeper than necessary into the woods, at night, unarmed, by themselves, just to urinate — fully knowing that the world has been overrun by zombies for quite some time.
Exactly…if you want the “respect” of any other vehicle, then follow the rules of the road. But, I have to remind myself that bicyclists are doing us all a favor by not burning fossil fuels to travel – and are, in some ways, superior human beings just by virtue of being bicyclists. But, yeah, don’t you dare run that red light, jerk.
The weird thing is that inclusion of that scene. Why is it there? It’s not a funny or witty exchange. It’s almost like it’s there just to assure us that the filmmakers knows its title comes from a Talking Heads and not an Arcade Fire song. “We’re cool, guys! Honest!”
I haven’t seen x-men but I assume that Magneto was in the holocaust and that’s why he hates humankind so much? I’d argue that it works for Magneto because the inclusion of the holocaust subverts the conventions of the comic book movie. Historical context and genocide aren’t things you think of when you consider “X-Men.” But this sort of movie: the son who’s washed up and goes on a journey to find himself, and has a dying father who he hasn’t seen in awhile, and is ready to DISCOVER things! — in THIS sort of movie (not sure what you’d call it), it just seems pretty trite.
Ugh. As soon as I saw that guy’s holocaust tattoo, the trailer lost me. First we had movies about the holocaust survivors themselves (great!), then we had movies about how “my grandfather who was always cold and emotionally distant actually turned out to be a holocaust survivor and we really bonded in that knowledge” (not so good!). I feel like we’re really close to movies about “how i once knew a guy who knew a guy who had something to do with the holocaust.”
The holocaust is just script-writing code for instant, emotional gravitas — but what’s even more upsetting, I think, is that if you really want to trade in “instant gravitas” there are about a bazillion other conflicts you can source that haven’t been so codified as to make them obscure (severe-looking german, gnarled arm displaying faded green tattoo) — why not just make this guy’s father Bosnian or something?
This is actually the deleted scene that opens Y Tu Mama Tambien. In the original version, this sequence plays, then there is a caption that says “16 years later.”
Is this “Between Two Ferns” fan fiction? If so, you just blew my mind.
I think Zooey means she’s “completely and UDDERLY shocked.” ok, I’ll show myself out now.
