  • PLEASE DO. Is it the chracters she chooses to play, or does she just play every character she's given with the horrible-dial turned up to 11?

    • I think it's both. I think she thinks women are stupid and scheming (except her, of course, because she's "different") and that men are giant penises controlled entirely by their id.
      Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

      • We went to see Crazy, Stupid, Love and Friends With Benefits on Sunday. The first movie was pretty good even though the storytelling felt a little uneven. Steve Carell and Julianne Moore were both good, but there is heavy use of the words "soul mate" and the concept that you only have one in your whole life evah. I must have been the only one in the theater who grew up on Da Creek and was majorly P/JO because I cringed every time someone said it. Plus, the little kid who is obsessed with his soul mate is totally a junior Dawson and annoyed me. Our theater was about 1/2 full and the audience was really into the movie the whole time, though. Lots of laughs all the way through. The real stars of the movie for me were The Gos and Emma Stone. They were fuckdorable in this and I just wanted to keep seeing them the whole time. Whenever the story returned to the older peeps, I was bummed that we weren't getting to see Ryan and Emma. They have awesome chemistry and I bet I was either giggling or smiling stupidly the whole time they were on screen together. When it ended, both Mr. Issie and I agreed that we would have preferred to see the sexy youngins getting it on rather than the adults trying to get back together.

        Friends With Benefits was ok. Maybe a B-/C+? It wasn't that funny and Justin and Mila weren't that supah sexy together. Again, I may have been biased because we watched it right after teh hawtness that was Ryan/Emma so I'm sure in comparison, J/M looked even more weak. And Emma has a cameo in FWB and in my mind I was like, "Where's The Gos? Are you guys still together?" We really only watched FWB 'cause Captain America's next show time didn't line up with the end of CSL if that tells you anything.

        • I enjoyed Captain America!

          I had no interest in Crazy Stupid Love EXCEPT the idea of seeing Emma & Ryan. I adore Emma Stone!

          • I would read your Kate Hudson essay. Can I contribute?

            Name one good movie she's been in. One! Almost Famous does not count.

              • That scene is literally the only thing that EVER comes to mind when I think of Kate Hudson. Oh, and how much hate I had for her brother when he was on DC. She is tainted by my Eddie-hate.

                side note: I just looked up Oliver Hudson on imdb because I blanked on the name of his slimy DC character, and his middle name is Rutledge. Oh, and he has one of the most disturbing pieces of trivia on his page:
                His mother, Goldie Hawn, was pregnant with him for 10 months. He began breathing in her womb and had massive bacteria in his lungs. He was 11 pounds.
                That freaks me out.

                • But non-Pacey parts of Gossip were just turrible! And I know it was supposed to be all "yay, justice!" and shit, but Kate Hudson's smug face at the end just ugh. Ugh. What was I saying?

                  I actually think Oliver Hudson is one of the funnier parts of that show he's on with David Spade and the guy who voiced The Tick and played Puddy on Seinfeld, and it's because the writers go off the fact that he can be so feminine! What was skeevetastic and serious on DC is now played for laughs, which seems appropriate. The Beek's been trying to base an entire career off that concept.

                  • I don't even know that I sat through the non-Pacey parts of Gossip!

                    • Ophy, the person that wrote that trivia is an idiot for several reasons.

                      I remember enjoying Gossip for its own sake, but I wouldn't qualify it as a good movie.

                      I forced myself to watch "How to Lose a Guy in Whatever" a few weeks back (okay fine, I couldn't find the remote and I wasn't moving after a 12 hour workday) because every girlfriend I have thinks it's just awesome. And I literally couldn't tell you one thing about it. I fell asleep towards the end so I have no idea if they end up together but I would bet money that they do!

                        • The boyfriend and I saw Another Earth tonight. Was somewhat distracted by crazy bad camera work -- ease off the hand-held! -- and there were more than a few unnecessarily long "artsy" shots, but the story itself was kind of stunning. Brit Marling (the main chick) co-wrote it. I'm impressed.

                          • I finally got a chance to see The Help and I really liked it. There's been so much controversy over the story and the book, but the movie was well done and I loved all the performances. When I first read it, I pictured Anne Hathaway playing Skeeter, but Emma Stone was awesome.

                            For obvious reasons, any movie that even slightly covers race relations during the civil rights movement is gonna be watched closely for accuracy, but in this movie (and the book, too) the makers were telling a really specific story. So all this criticism over how the story doesn't include background on civil rights leaders and doesn't really explain what men's roles were on either the white or black side is kind of pointless to me. That clearly wasn't the story the author/filmmaker wanted to tell. And people also seem upset because it doesn't point out EXPLICITLY that Skeeter had good intentions, but was also complicit in the racism of her time. Well, DUH. Who can't figure that out on their own? Maybe modern day racists who don't believe that they're racist? Which kind of makes them beyond help anyway.

                            So, yeah, I liked it. And I cried A LOT. And I watched it by myself in a mostly empty theater. Maybe I should go buy 7 cats now.

                              • Saw Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy yesterday on my birthday date with mr.o. Obviously his choice, not so much mine . . . but I loved it! Very atmospheric with tremendously fab performances. Some of the wigs were not so great, and they didn't let Tom Hardy fully be the beautiful man that he is, but it was otherwise quite nice. Easier to follow than I expected it to be from the reviews.
