I don’t really like it either, but this sounds nuts. People feel that Crash is a piece of predictable garbage, a big-budget TV movie-of-the-week about how racism is bad that has nothing original to say and just sloppily connects all its characters via eyerolling contrivances. If anything, most of the negative reaction…
Your last sentence nails my reaction. My primary problem with the movie was that it seemed like it was trying to copy the tone/setting of a Coen brothers movie without having any knowledge whatsoever of the region it was set in, let alone any personal feelings for it. It felt snide and false. I didn’t have a clue that…
I didn’t catch any of that from the article. That’s good to hear. I really like her in the handful of interviews I’ve seen, and she seems more naturally funny than she was allowed on that godawful show. So does her costar, for that matter. I’ll hope for the best.
It sure casts Ender’s Game in a new light!
Haha, yeah. “Eraser” from TDS was a popular one. “Black” got some play. Also, “Quiet Liar” by Handsome, “How to Disappear Completely” by Radiohead, and “Lover you Should Have Come Over” by Jeff Buckley.
Haha, this is kind of true. I really liked her back in the day, but even her more upbeat roles seem on the verge of desperation. Maybe I just watched Eternal Sunshine too many times and internalized that.
Now THIS is a column! I love many of the rom-coms I watch, but barely see any (recent loves would be It Happened One Night, The Big Sick, and Legally Blonde). As a male nerd who mainly watches weird genre pics, I know very little about the genre other than what gets mocked by my less enlightened compatriots. There are…
Thanks, this link was the most worthwhile part of this article!
I think another aspect to this that no one else seems to have caught onto is that I think a big part of his Ringo criticism isn’t that the studio recordings were crap, it’s that he took a ton of takes to lay down that simple part well enough for it to be worthy of being recorded. Jazz guys of the time typically went…
Ramsay raped the character that was flipped with Sansa on the show PLENTY. I was just relieved they didn’t recreate scenes like the ones where Reek was forced to get directly involved with the rape.
Right! Which is why I ask! If the goal of the game, according to this article, is to evade their pickups, how would it work? Does it not ALLOW you to say no unless you choose a very specific path of responses? Or is it purely just a simulator for “look at these assholes” where the point is to see what a conversation…
I’m kind of confused by it. Shouldn’t you be able to just win by hitting GO AWAY and NO over and over again and never paying any attention? I kind of want to play it anyway.
It’s lighter and fluffier in tone, but I think it has a lot more behind it.
Who thinks she’s a good actress, other than execs and the same people who nominated Modern Family for best comedy every year for like a decade? She’s becoming the woman equivalent of Sam Worthington.
Just what I was thinking. I’d be happy about this news, except for Trump’s attitude towards the NFL.
I liked it, but agree with almost all of this!!
This kind of ties in with his complaint to make it a strength. The characters are awful, and they all die at the end! Great!
There was a really great feature called “The Laser Age” which served a similar function on The Dissolve, back when it existed. RIP
I was a big reader as a kid, and one thing sticks out when I look back - my parents kept me from checking out or buying any of the Berenstain Bears. They said they rotted your brain. Looking back on it, that was one of their best parenting moves! Calvin and Hobbes was encouraged instead.
