I’m a hipster and a fraud for saying I like the man and what he stood for, even if I don’t like his music? Okay, then.
I went back and forth on this for several minutes, but I decided “dick Icarus” was too mellifluous a phrase to be denied, and I stand by it.
Thank you, Plies.
When asked whether there is any way that Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey can be forgiven, Bryan Cranston says, “We should let that open... Let’s leave it open for the few who can make it through that gauntlet of trouble and who have reclaimed their life and their dignity and their respect for others. Maybe it’s…
We spread the petty shit around, but we don’t make it up. The point is, there’s plenty of petty shit already—look no further than these very pages!—so why invent more? It just undermines the snotty superiority we media types are trying so hard to convey!
I’m very sorry for joking about a pyramid’s spiritual emptiness. I hereby retract this article.
It’s a score that derives unexpected influence from romance and fantasy, it was operatic in structure, and it intertwined a lot of diverse orchestration with nods to the kind of industrial noise Coil set out to make. It was a uniquely emotionally rich score for a horror film, and lot of subsequent composers have cited…
Oh, there are definitely some good horror soundtracks—both of those are indeed great ones. People just don’t tend to buy them, at least not on the scale of other movie soundtracks. My point was about popularity, not quality.
It is a great delivery. Nearly makes up for his “Yeah? Well, you’re not from Chicago” in The Untouchables.
It’s a noteworthy release, regardless of its quality.
I’m off to sneak into Daniel Day-Lewis’ house and break his acting legs.
The statement from Daniel Day-Lewis’ official spokesperson: “Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.”
I love The Ben Stiller Show, but it didn’t exactly take a lot of big swings. A big chunk of it is dated pop-culture parodies (“What if Eddie Munster were in Cape Fear? What if Andre Agassi were in Die Hard?”) that were essentially just overlong MTV Movie Awards skits. Nevertheless, it is probably the more consistently…
You can also watch it for free on Crackle. It’s streaming on Amazon if you’re already a member there. And you can see a whole bunch of it on YouTube.
Okay, everyone but Danette and me is wrong.
That lit up our office Slack thread for about an hour the second it was proposed. I remain stunned by just how wrong it is, and how many of my coworkers supported it.
For the record, everyone but me is wrong.
Looks to me like he got his gross opinions thoroughly repudiated by 30 other people, which is kind of how this thing is supposed to work. At this point, seeing him repeatedly told how and why he’s wrong and just how many people think he’s an asshole is more useful as a deterrent than just deleting the thread.
