Easily the best comment section ever. I only posted a few times, but it was always a great read. All you Ponyboys need to stay gold.
I’m gonna miss this place/hold out hope that it stays up because I revisit these recaps every once in a while to feel joy in this cold, dark world.
All the problems with the finale of LOST were a result of the sloppy final season, and to blame all of the problems of LOST on that finale is kinda dumb, so long story short, yeah, it was fine, heaven church, bright light, sure.
I agree, but Llewyn Davis would think the Oscars are careerist and a little square, so.
That movie’s just a mess, like if God spilled some Scorsese.
Every time I know the clip is about to come, and I think it’s about to get old. But it never does.
Do we forget Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans that quickly?
I enjoyed this movie very much, but I gotta defend my boy Peeta real quick (and before that, quick tangent, we can make fun of Suzanne Collins’s naming abilities all day, but I dare you to shout Peeta at the top of your lungs and not feel good about yourself. It’s just a good name to shout at the top of your lungs).
Homeboy never guilt trips her. He merely states the fucked up situation as it is, and she’s ignoring him, and he’s looking for someone to talk to about their fucked up situation, and she’s literally the only person who truly understands it. Dude’s got every reason to be a little bit peeved about it because they’re in it together, and Katniss is a little bit selfish thinking it’s only about her (but true to every teenager ever). Dude gets mad at her for not telling her about the visit of President Peeniss Shipper Snow threatening her family because friendship is based on trust and she should have trusted him on that shit because his life is on the line too. Fake relationships are built on trust as well, the simple trust of “Hey, don’t tell anyone this thing is fake,” and he’s just trying to make the best out of a shitty situation, same as Katniss.

I’m completely sold on a movie where Andy Dwyer and Batman fumble into saving the world.
“No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep comin’ back and back until one of you is dead. And then he would still keep coming back.”- Ace Rothfrankenstein about Nicky Santerrible
Leave the gun. Take the corpse.
Get in, loser, we’re going haunting.
I’m not sure I would’ve talked in a British accent, but I definitely would’ve played up my worst aspects in a panic around Tatiana Maslany, so yeah, I identified with Tom in that episode.
I thought Silver Linings Playbook was just fiiiiiiiiine (not awful, but how did it get nominated for SO MANY awards, including Jacki Weaver who can best be described in Silver Linings Playbook as “there” (As in: “How was Jacki Weaver in Silver Linings Playbook?” “She was in Silver Linings Playbook, I think”)) and American Hustle looks a bit better and a lot more ridiculous. I am in. (Damn you, David O. Russell)
I’ll say that she was just good (and elevated the written role into something not completely terrible) and didn’t deserve her Oscar win, though. (Jessica Chastain deserved that, I mean, come on. She gave Tony Soprano side eye like it was NOTHING.)
Can we also talk about how Oliver Stone called the finale’s violence “ridiculous” as if he didn’t make Savages?
I liked the movie, but I feel like it’s a better version of Avatar (great theater experience, thin characters, and I never intend on seeing the movie again), but beyond that I got emotionally exhausted midway through the movie (when she’s floating through the space station and the camera pans to show a spark), and I thought, “Oh. Everything bad that can happen will happen, so I know it’s just going to keep throwing shit at her (literally) until the end where she’s safe,” and checked out of the movie.
I dunno, watching the trailer and the reading all the buzz coming up into it, I was expecting Alien without the alien (where the xenomorph is more an existential threat than physical), and it was just an hour and a half of spacey explodey things (shot gorgeously, but still)
Wooo weekend! Booo no more Breaking Bad!
But who cares.
In my Breaking Bad withdrawal, I’ve been finally catching up with The Good Wife. I saw the first two seasons a while ago, but right now I’m towards the end of the third season, and it’s really really good, and the guest stars they get for each episode are fantastic.
I’m gonna need more upvotes.
I clapped, said “YEAH, BITCH!” and held my hands up high in victory. Because fuck that Opie Dead-Eyed Piece of Shit.
If we had five more episodes (like, instead of splitting up the final season into two eight episode parts, it was two seasons), I would have loved the “Saul and Walt Road Trip To Anonymity Comedy Hour.”
