All the actual 22-year-old actors were busy playing high schoolers on tv. Read more

Yeah, unlike the rest of us, who do work in a career for the sheer pleasure of [whatever the hell you do for work]. Read more

Like when people say “one-hit wonder” like it’s derogatory. It’s one more than most of us get.

It’s called method acting! You’d think H. Jon Benjamin wouldn’t have to wear a tuxedo or be incredibly drunk to record his lines for Archer, either, but he just has that dedication!

The author of the profile also mentions up front that they attended the same school. I read a lot of jealousy seeping into the narrative, a “look how silly and crazy my incredibly successful former peer is!” slant to everything. Read more

It sounds like a good movie but this is the sort of movie I just can’t watch. Bleak, violent, and gory.  Read more

Yeah, I don’t get it. It sounded fine, she seemed to treat it carefully so not to damage it. Read more

Yeah that scene was a little much, but I definitely laughed at the girl using the bunny as her weapon. It’ll be a lot of fun to watch again with my kids too, but I’m going to have to skip over the “shadow monsters snatching kids out of their beds” scene so I don’t have to deal with a whole fuckload of nightmares for Read more
