Find Me On:
I’m just going to re-watch Murder She Wrote on Netflix. Because I am actually a 75 year old lady.
This entire thing makes me feel like Grandpa Simpson
He’s Doug Pitt’s brother.
I bet Brad Pitt doesn’t even remember the time I broke into his house. Granted, I broke in hoping he had Tilda Swinton’s contact info, but still! It was special to me, Brad! IT WAS SPECIAL TO ME.
Fellow Nerd here. The object of my pre-teen adoration was Joel from Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Whatever, he was goofy, funny, and had puppets. Those are the things I look for to this day in a partner!
You just earned yourself a co-writing credit, superglue!
I’ve always wanted to make a movie that has a regular plot, but none of the extras or background characters are dudes over 40ish, and none of them are unattractive, and in group scenes they rarely have speaking parts, and when named male characters are together they only talk about women (not necessarily sexy talk, but, you know, they have no character or role that isn’t defined by their relationship to a woman). Also, they wear the dudely equivalent of the star trek movie lady uniform (short kilts and tank tops? It’s still being hammered out, guys!).
I’m just not sure people would pick up on the not even well managed or subtle satire.
Huh. You know, I’m a pretty standard humorless feminist when it comes to misogyny and the overt sexualization of women in the media, but it literally never occurred to me that the Alice Eve underwear scene would cause a kerfuffle. Which makes me sad, because it was a pointless scene that was pretty much only added for t&a. So good. Apologize! It was a pointless scene that added nothing!
Also, the Chris Pine shirtless scenes are a pretty tame tit for tat excuse. If you’re gonna play that, next time have Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto wander around for a scene wearing nothing but thongs, and make sure they are oiled up! AND NEVER GIVE AN EXPLANATION. They just roll that way.
Oh my god yes. Dudes, she’s a little old lady who has been through a hell of a time and you’re asking her about how she feels to stand in a demolition zone after her neighborhood was leveled and then you WON’T EVEN HELP HER GET HER DOG? I get that journalists shouldn’t be part of the story but that shouldn’t supersede one’s obligation to not be a total douchebag.
Everything is terrible, but that was nice.
Also, was any one else shouting “PUT DOWN THE CAMERA AND HELP!”?
Yeah. I mean, they could have had a neat twist when Evil Harold shouted KHAAAAAN after the (spoilers) explosion that made him think all his Eugenic Bros are dead.
I also like Penelope! BROTHER!
I hope they make another one, and I hope that the Borg are featured. I know that they are a Next Gen thing but the Borg are great! How can you not love the borg?
Listen, friend. I wish not to steer you ILL. I shall guide you in this quest, as the EAGLE guides the hearts and minds of all who see it. In wandering DOWN this path, we must be careful to avoid misstep. LOAD.
I just can’t get over Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan Noonien Singh. I mean, he did a really good job. But he’s the whitest dude ever. I don’t mind the ‘invincible villain’ in this case as Khan’s backstory is that he was created to be the most superest soldier ever. I DO agree that the fight, while neat, was silly after that build up.
Oooh, also Children of Dune. It again may not actually be ‘good’, but I really like dune! SHUT UP GUYS MY MOM THINKS I’M COOL.
He has been in some crap, I grant you. But:
I really like Wanted. It may not be good, but I like it overall. It’s fun, and pre-badass anxiety Wesley is the character I identify with most, ever. I also liked Last King of Scotland, even if it was problematic in parts and a difficult watch. I also liked X-Men: First Class even though it makes NO SENSE. The Last Station has Helen Mirren and Christohper Plummer so even if it sucks, I love it because those two are THE BEST EVER. Some people really liked Trance. I was not one of them, but I don’t think it was terrible.
Also, Arthur Christmas was ADORABLE. AND the neverwhere radio play is great.
Seriously, if they don’t include Dazzler in this I am going to scream forever.
Oh man, X-Men: Days of Future Past looks like the hottest of messes so far, but I am still going to see it, if for no other reason than James McAvoy’s Professor X looking like this:
The 70s were not kind to anyone, were they?
Sorry, I am still working through my AvX feelings.
Correction. He WAS supposedly in the range of 60-80 years old.
(Also, not to be a dick, but Professor X canon has been all over the map. Depending on the story, ect. he may or may not be in the chair. Also, I LOVE PROFESSOR X OK? Cyclops you can go to hell forever.)
DUDE I WILL NOT HAVE PROFESSOR X SLIGHTED ON MY WATCH. HASN’T HE SUFFERED ENOUGH?
The answer is yes. Some wounds never heal, Marvel.
I fucking love the Hawkeye Initiative.
*goes to dry erase board, puts ’0′ in the ‘Days since sex/gender/whatever kerfuffle’ space.*
If it is not farting, then there is no way I ever want to find out. WHAT ELSE ARE BUTTS HIDING FROM US?
