Find Me On:
Maris Kreizman is really Bob Bensen.
Can’t tell if serious… But yeah I know she’s Carol Markus.
They’ll make another one, but if it doesn’t perform well in it’s second weekend, look for that budget to drop. I think this is the last of the JJ directed ones too.
I just read an interview between Josh Horowitz and Damon Lindelof, an Lindelof said there’s a reason why she got undressed, and it wasn’t just gratuitous. That kind of sounds like a dodge to me, because if it has to wait for another movie, it’s still gratuitous in this one.
Right after he “died” my wife and I, almost in unison, turned to each other and said “Khan’s blood.”
Loved every minute of it. The SPOILER: reversal of the reactor room scene was a great touch. And also, I think it was smart that they didn’t have some young swarthy guy doing his Montalban impression. That would have made everything unintentionally campy. I thought Cumberbatch made it his own in a way that acknowledges but doesn’t even try to touch the brilliance of Montalban. I could have used more flowery monologues though.
Also, what the hell was Eric Wareheim doing at the wedding?
By the way people, this album is the real deal.
Randomly got way too drunk with my wife last night and am really paying for it at work today. I am going to REALLY pay for it at the cardio/weights class at the gym tonight. I better bring a bucket.
Yes, I have noticed that as well.
I also like that Neil is agnostic without being a dick about it. He’s always like “Look, I’m a scientist. That’s it.” Shut up, Richard Dawkins.
What’s the over/under on narcissistic personality disorder vs. pure, grade-A American sociopathy?
To be fair, Benjamin Button didn’t work because it was in actuality an incredibly short story, not even close to book length. The whole movie was basically padding.
Five flasks, after you take them out of the oven, stir in some spicy dijon mustard with those sprouts. It will change your life.
I skipped lunch today so I would have room for the five-course Indian food cooking class my wife and I are taking tonight. Woo hoo!
Where’s the drop?
Totally. Teach the core values and the rest will fall in place, hopefully.
My wife and I want to start a family next year. We are terrified of our hypothetical child becoming an asshole. Like, how do you balance a kid between reading good books and texting on a fucking iPhone? Will my kid even be able to sit still long enough to read a book when from day one everything is instant gratification/communication? What if I don’t buy my kid an iPhone when every other rotten goblin in the neighborhood has one? Do I risk my kid’s social ostrization to make him or her a better person? These thoughts terrify me. One thing is for sure though, my kid WILL know classic rock.
Yeah I would say Dawn of the Dead and 300 are great little gritty genre movies. It’s impossible to make a good Watchmen movie, but I think Snyder’s version was a noble miss. I have not seen sucker punch because I am not in a pubescent fever dream. What about that owl movie? Anyone see that?
I agree with Bob, the Nolan factor will make this good. Chris is not about to splash his name across something he didn’t have a hand in (ahem Mr. Tarantino).
Man, Millenials are so shallow.
I think Baz Luhrmann just ran out of poppers and couldn’t finish directing the movie until he re-stocked. That’s the only way I can make sense of his films.
ANd how is it any differen from “The Strangers?”
I still say she’s under conservatorship and this is what her parents allow as a creative outlet.
