I’m watching So You Think You Can Dance right now, and all I can say is I am SO much less into this season than last season. This was driven home when they had people FROM last season come on down to redance some dances. Ach! Let’s take a tour down memory lane, shall we? EDIT: OR NOT!! Since Dick Clark is taking everything down from the internet grumble grumble. This....
Let's talk about sex
My girl, Katherine Moennig is in a new show this fall. It looks…bad.
Well. Last night I watched this movie Blueberry that I had been wanting to see for quite a while, based pretty much solely on the magazine cover story to the right, the fact that the movie is based on pretty good comics by Moebius, and the fact that it starred Vincent Cassel, but was a Western. Actually, you know what? Those are pretty good reasons. How naive I was. Some highlights: 1) As with...
Now, the reason I made this blog was to really champion the things that I love. Sometimes because those things don’t get the respect they Absolutely Should, but mainly because I think being really earnestly excited about things is Awesome, and Good For The Soul, and, it’s important to be happy. And so when, as is wont to happen, a pop culture travesty occurs, I am sometimes torn about...
Reality TV is REAL, yo.
My roommate recently got the DVDs of Mad About You on Netflix, and we just watched an episode called “15 Minutes”, where Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt are supposed to film a 15-minute-long documentary about their everyday lives. Clearly, it’s super hard (tho, getting easier) to be “interesting” (and/or appropriate) on cue, or with an audience, and there was a whole lot...
Speaking of wearing an outfit more than once
I’ve been thinking about movie costumes lately. For one, I found an issue of Nylon lying around the house and they had a whole section devoted to fashion inspired by The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (though my question is: if you are neither Catherine Deneuve nor French, why would you even attempt to pull off a trenchcoat and flats the way she does?). And for two, I just watched the movie Because...
Jam me jack me push me pull me.
I got sort of distracted while trying to get some work done, and ended up watching an old David Letterman interview with Sarah Michelle Gellar. It was boring, and she spent like 5 minutes telling this whole non-story about how she sat next to Christian Slater on the plane, and kept saying “HEATHERS!” over and over (and over) again, to remind us all of how important he was. And, you...
When things that are so wrong become so right
Jamie Foxx. Tom Cruise. Two of my least favorite cinematic presences (and ego-tastic George Strait-tributors, I’m looking at you Jamie Foxx). But in 2004 they came together under the questionable tutelage of Michael Mann for two hours of movie magic, or something similar. That’s right: Collateral. Now, I can’t quite remember what Collateral was about—Jamie Foxx was a cab...
How can Ryan Reynolds be both Deadpool AND The Green Lantern? It just seems completely impossible to me! I mean, I understand that it’s Marvel vs. DC whatever whatever. But I just don’t think you can be two superheroes. It feels wrong. Also, the movies are apparently coming out in the same year. This article compares it to Harrison Ford appearing in both Star Wars and Indiana Jones in...

I am in a really bad fucking mood right now, so I was just going to make this entry a short tribute to one of the world’s favorite stars of cinema: Vincent Cassel. However, the first couple of clips that I found were 1) an incredibly boring interview misleadingly titled “Vincent Cassel on lust and method acting” and 2) this: Ha! This is from Les Rivieres Pourpres, which I...
