Find Me On:
I bailed with ten minutes left in the second episode. Did they ever get to Harper’s Island?
I thought it was established that Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise Crazy. Furthermore, if you had Tom Cruise’s troubles, you’d be Tom Cruise Crazy too.
“Possibly correct. Definitely exhausting.”
This (Movie) Is 40 (Minutes Longer Than It Needs To Be)
Is that because the words “trigger warning” are triggering? (Oh god, I hope it’s not.)
A friend of mine used to share Shakesville posts on Google Reader semi-frequently, and I remember reading one of the “funny” ones and kind of cringing at how effortfully Gabe-esque it was. Knowing that an affinity for Videogum is actually part of their (generally [adjective removed for ableism]) blog culture explains a lot.
Ugh, Shakesville. I’m a feminist and all, but…ugh. Please include a trigger warning next time you’re about to bring up Shakesville.
Backlash was published twenty years ago. Just thought I’d make a note of that.
I went with dark horse Julie because you never know when you’ll need a scünci in one of the five imaginable colors. Try to get that at Strawbridge & Clothier.
I did love the hilarious Significant Pause before the final zombie straggled out. Oh, hey, is there another zombie in there? I wonder if it’s anyone important?
Maybe we’re all overlooking the absurdist interpretation of this half-season of The Walking Dead. “HEY YOU GUYS, SORRY TO KEEP YOU WAITING, I WAS IN THE BARN THE WHOLE TIME.” –Godot
Tough love. Herschel was in denial about the walkers just like Team Grimes was in denial about Sophia. Hope is the thing with
feathers chunks of rotting flesh falling off its face so shoot it in the head.
GABE, IT’S A HYUNDAI! Haha, just kidding, who cares.
I was worried that after they resolved the whole Sophia thing they would move on from the farm, but from the previews it looks like they’re still going to be on that farm for a while! Phew! I love that farm so much!
“Rick is staring into the middle distance” should be the logline for every episode of this show.
I was surprised at how many people were surprised.
Did anyone see Paul F. Tompkins and Kevin Smith seated side by side on Talking Dead (which, by the way, why does that exist?) last night? That was visually jarring. A study in contrasts.
Anyway, The Walking Dead! Unappealing characters making illogical choices and having dull conversations (and occasionally there are zombies)!
I have various friends and acquaintances in other online venues (Twitter and, okay, fine, yes, Livejournal) who think TWD is a legitimately great show and enjoy it very much. I feel like this is a safe space to say: this show is the opposite of great. It is bad. It’s bad and I hate it, but I’m also fascinated by it. In that sense, it is my new Studio 60.
I also keep waiting for someone to mention that the actress who plays Andrea was also the worst on The X-Files. Or was my best friend at the time who was super into The X-Files the only one who hated her like crazy?
Bad Vampire Dog! No bite! NO BITE!
I understand that fighting the wolves probably represents the character’s inner struggles or whatever, but I have to say I’d be a little uncomfortable watching a movie built around “Liam Neeson is very depressed that his wife is dead.” [Emoticon to indicate earnestness.]
I will totally watch that whale movie (someday, on tv, in the privacy of my own home), and I will totally be a snotty, blubbering mess through the entire third act.
Did anyone notice that Man On A Ledge was written by Pablo Fenjves? If you remember that name, you are old, like me! (He testified in the O.J. trial.) Hollywood Facts!
I agree (although I haven’t seen Blood Diamond, so…). The terrible accent I am really excited for in this movie has got to be Jeffrey Donovan as RFK, hoo boy.
Sorry, I’m sure you’re very nice, it’s just that I’m racist against businesspeople. For Halloween this year I’m totally going in businessface.
I was pretty shocked until I read “Business School”, which my brain auto-translates to “Asshole Factory”, and then it made sense.
This is very good timing. Did you know that the San Diego Zoo Safari Park has an excellent webcam through which you can just watch elephants all day? When you’re not working very hard at your job, which of course you are always doing, you can just sit there and watch a herd of elephants, including babies(!), eating and playing and walking around and sometimes having a pool party. It’s the best.
“I absolutely loathe hydrangeas.”
Hey, what’s up with Richard Gere? Oh, he’s the killer.
“Fireflies In The Garden” sounds like a fake movie title from a tv show. “And the Oscar goes to…Vincent Chase, for Fireflies In The Garden.”
This is actually an example of George Lucas’s judicious editing. The first draft was, “This reminds me of the last time I shouted ‘NOOOOOOOOO!’”
I have heard it said that one shouldn’t judge Kevin Smith by his awful fans, and as time goes on I see that this is true. We should judge him by his awful films, and his awful SELF.
