Right, but that certainly isn’t the men saying “she defies categorization.” They didn’t say “Joan and Marilyn have nothing to do with one another!” They upended the comparison to Marilyn, but nevertheless it was easily made.
What? They SPECIFICALLY call Joan the Marilyn of the office. It’s Peggy they can’t categorize. #doyrresearch
Yes, or oral sexual congress. #professionaltalk

I think this recap is way, way, way too quick to judge Mary. She’s a lovely, complex character who, yes, is sometimes also a bitch, but in an apprentice-to-the-Dowager type of way. She is super clever and vulnerable and brassy and great.
Ben and Leslie are so far, far removed from Jim and Pam as people that I’m a little bit in shock at the comparison. (Then I relaxed because it is TV!) Ben and Leslie are good, smart, dedicated, hardworking people who don’t try to stop each other from pursuing their hopes and dreamzzz. So. Kind of the opposite of Jim and Pam.
I wonder what Gabe’s middling review of Emma Stone on SNL thinks of this laudatory one.
It’s like when Damien Hirst bedecked a skull with diamonds and gold and then called it the most expensive art in the world. Uh, sir, I think you have misplaced your sense.
Touch of Evil.
I feel like I am simple, but I do not see any place/thread to comment for this giveaway on the Videogum page.
I nominate Hancock. Numerous times.

Well, also, I know her target audience. I know quite a few unfortunate members of her target audience. And even THEY did not enjoy this movie. That is how objectively awful it is.
I very much agree with this rebuttal. I think Summer is a perfect repudiation of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope — she has a whole other inner life that we’re not privy to because our POV, Tom, isn’t privy to it. But there’s complexity there — the girl that dances with her ex while days away from getting engaged to someone else is an interesting character, and her speech at the end is really sad and good.
Also yes of course to point B.
Not to be an asshole (I am an asshole), but it’s Freamon. Lester Freamon. AKA The Best.
