The Gabe the Earth Stood Still
If I were one of the Flash’s nemeses, I’d just string fishing line 3″ off the ground like, ALL OVER my evil lair. Suck it, Flash!
What IS that all about?
“I’m getting more mileage out of these NBC jokes than I would a single gallon of gas in any of my big dumb expensive cars that I have so many of! I’m so very rich! Feel sorry for me!”
A) There was the distinct possibility I saw the movie in the same showing as Kelly? Like, I stepped out of the sun-drenched bizarro world of Spring Breakers into maximally gross NY snow garbage. THANKS WEATHER!
B) I get the whole Riff-Raff connection, but was anybody else so forever primed by High School they caught a pseudo-Gatsby vibe during the whole “look at my shit!” scene?
C) WTG making the boring kinda-Christian girl totally and overtly racist, Korine. A+ politics! It’s very relieving to know that if Bill Maher ever overdoses on his own smug self-regard, someone will be there to step up. (This is not to say that he was necessarily WRONG, or to defend the vast, seething morass of totally and overtly racist boring kinda-Christians in this country of ours–more like, when you make Andrew Ti look nuanced, yr doing it wrong.)
D) My sister goes to actual college in St. Petersburg. I can only hope she and her friends take great care crossing the street, lest they be run over by someone smoking a huge blunt while driving at approximately a million miles per hour.
E) I’m pretty sure the takeaway from this movie is Blonde People are Amoral Monsters.
These were some thoughts I had about Spring Breakers!
Heathcliffe butt-chugs wine all the time.
Cool. Real cool.
So when Breaking Bad ends, what show will be shown in its entirety in 3-frame chunks every friday?
According to several unintentionally sad TV commercials, yes. #recessionomics
Step Up 5 The Fart Noises
“These are different robots than the ones you’re thinking of.”
I never thought I’d miss Carlos Mencia…
Was I the only one who was kind of bored by all this? Like, seige seige seige, blah blah blah. Obviously Cersei’s a crazy monster person. It’s nice to see that Jeoffrey can still find new ways of being The Worst, and Tyrion new ways of being The Best, but other than that?
I’m really looking forward to whatsisname shouting “KHALEEESII!” over and over again for the entirety of the next episode, which is what’s going to happen, right? Just that one shot, over and over again, for an hour?
It’s all fun and games until Deeley accidentally steps on one of the contestants and/or rampages through Tokyo again.
(She’s Very Tall, is what I’m saying.)
I really hope any contestants who come on wearing blended fabrics are penalized. (Lev. 19:19, f/the record.)
Communism was a red herring!
Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out? That reference is so old, it could be arrested for being unaccompanied at a playground.
That baby’s reaction is basically the human equivalent of the spinning rainbow wheel.
On the other hand, it would kind of be nice if Atheism could be publicly represented with people who weren’t so often totally smug dicks (see also, e.g., Richard Dawkins, the late Chris Hitchens, &c.)
(Cf. also libertarians who are kind of uncomfortable being widely co-identified with a guy who is, if not actually racist/homophobic, not too worried about the racism and homophobia of his close associates.)
