What this franchise needs is some promising young talent hot off of directing an indie, to whom the studios can give a nine figure budget, but control so heavily that that young director’s blooming style and individuality will be completely crushed by the demands of uniformity to pre-determined marketing strategies…
They’re two of the most beautiful, charming people on the planet. Of COURSE they’re at least considering pairing up.
If they are in love, why wouldn’t they be?
Olyphant is always a draw, but the rest of the cast is great. Least annoying teenage characters ever.
Any “bad sex” list without the Showgirls pool scene is dead to me.
Jesus fuck, what a goddamn tragedy. The man was really one of the all-time great character actors.
I like Russell Brand, but am very much hoping this is more of a stand-up special than another political rant. He seems well-intentioned, but in a college-freshman-who-just-discovered-Chomsky-and-wants-to-spend-the-whole-party-talking-about-how-we-can-change-society-maaaaaaaan kind of way. It’s a bit much
No, no, no, it’s about ethics in superhero movie journalism.
So what you’re saying is: racism is over. Yay! We did it, y’all!
Accusations on Twitter! Denial of allegations on Facebook!
I also feel like whenever the show goes to Robert and Sol, it’s rarely good. I like both characters and I like both actors, but the show, after season one, has no idea what the hell to do with them. The drama they’re involved in is always so fabricated... it never feels real, or even real within the reality of a…
Oh wow. I had no idea she was that young when she wrote it. That really is impressive. Like, not “Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein when she was 18" amazing, but still pretty damn impressive.
That’s kind of amazing. I read it in grade 8. I still remember parts of it. I read other books at that time, most of which i’ve completely forgot. To write something at that age that stays with people for so long is such an accomplishment. Hell, to do that at any age is. But as a first book, as a 16 year old? amazing.
But that’s exactly why the whole exercise is kind of silly. There’s really no way to judge a film or performance entirely removed from its assorted baggage, because there is no objective metric in which to judge the quality of the film. “Putting my personal feelings aside, the film was really the best” is not “putting…
For some reason I recently watch The Vault. James Franco could be blacklisted from nominations for life solely based on him taking that role. Quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen.
The Academy Awards are awarded for art (or at least they used to be). Not politics.
Enjoyed it but felt it fizzled out a bit at the end.
Though Plaza is surprisingly good in this (I believe she’s also listed as an Executive Producer, which suggests she had a hand in getting this film off the ground), I think part of what makes this so great is the phenomenal and unlikely casting. For example, O’Shea Jackson (AKA Ice Cube’s son!), while not the most…
This man fascinates me. He went from the On Deadly Ground environmental activism (holy shit that ending monologue was glorious in the most awful way) to shilling for 45 and Putin, who are essentially villains from a particularly bad episode of Captain Planet. But there’s no sign of the dissonance embolism such a move…
