The best example I can think of for “not up to the job” was the 2012 Total Recall remake. It’s not that I hated the idea of a remake, but they just kind of half-assed it—e.g., Colin Farrell in 2012 was never, ever going to match Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime.
I forgot that she was in Tremors! I love that movie.
He always seemed to take great delight when one of his jokes bombed. Anyhow, he’ll forever be my favorite Weekend Update Anchor. I also watch his Burt Reynolds Celebrity Jeopardy bit on YouTube once every couple years and it still makes me laugh.
Neither her music nor her sitcoms have ever been my particular cup of tea, but Reba McEntire has always seemed like good people. I bet she’d be a good hang.
Tahoe resident here, although I’m fortunate enough to be on the opposite side of the lake. This is scary and heartbreaking. Until now, we’ve just been dealing with disgusting, toxic air for the last six weeks. School for my kids was supposed to begin last week, but the first four days were cancelled due to smoke. But… Read more
My point isn’t about this particular earnings list but that Jezebel’s sports coverage is nearly exclusively focused on Naomi Osaka, Serena Williams, and Simone Biles (all of whom are great!), to the exclusion of many other successful athletes (who are are also great!). Read more
Mine too! (I live in the mountains and both my kids race, albeit without any World Cup/Olympic aspirations). Even though Shiffrin is probably the best-ever American skier and still very young, not a peep here. And there are plenty of tremendously successful women athletes in other disciplines who aren’t Naomi Osaka,… Read more
Does Jezebel know that there are more than three successful female athletes in the world?
Among the greats, Charlie Watts was one of the good ones. He was a fantastic jazz musician who just happened to be rock royalty. And Watts was effortlessly cool in an unpretentious way that few rock stars ever are. (The world’s most dapper rock star?) He was also married to the same woman since 1964. Here’s a recent pi…
I understand how the lack of a criminal history might mitigate a person’s sentence. But I don’t understand how being honorably discharged (which basically means he was never “fired” from the military, a ridiculously low bar) affects sentencing at all. I missed the part of sentencing reform where we all agreed that… Read more
I get it. His aesthetic doesn’t click with me either. But he seems like a good dude. I think Shane Torres nails it:
The Count of Monte Cristo is so, so good.
I have to say that Olympic basketball is kind of a hard watch. Or, at least, it’s a lot less fluid than the NBA. I wonder if it’s the lack of a 3-second rule.
Yes. They were pretty damn good. It was especially nice when you got an extra big clump that was particularly sugar rich. I’m not sure how I survived the 80's and 90's without becoming diabetic.
I stockpiled, but not enough.
The cognitive dissonance here is crazy. Capitalism is bad when Kristen Bell waives her tenants’ rent in the two residential buildings she owns because just being a landlord is inequitable. But if Rihanna amasses a ridiculous amount of personal wealth on par with many poorer nations’ GNP, it’s “You go, girl!” Read more
