my old VHS copy barely worked anymore from being viewed upwards of 10,000 times.
Read about my 90’s Movie Challenge here. (:
I’ve gotten like ten messages of people who have said the exact same thing, and I don’t buy it. To me it is totally different because when Heath was cast as The Joker, I was like “Odd choice, but amazing actor who always gives fantastic performances.” In my opinion, Anne is an okay actress who most of the time gives performances I hate. I don’t have a lot of memory on Rachel Getting Married, as I wasn’t crazy for that film. I actually think I didn’t even finish it. She just does not do it for me. As always, thanks for the message though, and the input! (:
First of all, thank you for taking the time to go through my blog, that is really cool.
Asking if I’ve seen many teen films is like asking if Jack Nicholson likes sunglasses. I LOVE teen films. I have a weird fascination with the teen years because mine were…weird… but we’ll discuss my issues later.
Anyway, I have to disagree. I do not think Easy A was very brilliant at all. It was good, it was amusing, but I found myself enjoying the STELLAR adult cast far more than the teen story that was going on (though I do love Emma Stone).
I am obsessed with all the classic teen films of the 80’s, and I really didn’t like her whole “John Hughes did not direct my life” speech. It just seemed so forced, and it shouldn’t have! Do you know how many times I’ve squealed at the end of Sixteen Candles in front of the church (“Me?” “Yeah, you!”)? So yes, I do know how Olive felt in that instance, but I just think the writing could have been kicked up a few notches. No way was it better than Mean Girls, especially as far as the comedy is concerned. Mean Girls is one of the sharpest accounts of life as a teenage girl that I’ve ever seen and still makes me die laughing even though I’ve seen it dozens of times. I don’t have a desire to watch Easy A again anytime soon, though I’m sure I will someday. It’s not that I didn’t like it - it’s just that it was cute, not amazing.
You know, this is a hard one for me because I know that Andrew’s absence made way for Mark Ruffalo who is one of those people who, if he is a movie, no matter what it is, you know I’m gonna watch it. BUT ANDREW GARFIELD WAS SO FANTASTIC IN THE SOCIAL NETWORK. He was the beating little heart of that movie. LAWYER UP, ASSHOLE. I mean, come on. So great.
When it comes down to it, I wasn’t as crazy about The Kids Are All Right as so many people were. Overall, The Social Network is LIGHTYEARS better in my opinion and the character of Eduardo is such a huge part of that for me. Mark Ruffalo was incredible in The Kids Are All Right, but despite my years of loving him, I think i’d rather see Andrew Garfield in this spot.
It doesn’t matter, because there is no chance in hell anyone besides Christian Bale was ever going to win, but still it would have been nice to see Andrew in there. He is the new Spiderman, and I just hope that he continues to do interesting, dramatic roles as opposed to turning into a big budget blockbuster guy. If he goes the more interesting way, I’m sure he will earn an Academy Award nomination somewhere down the line.
I’ve said this before here but I absolutely hate the choices she makes as an actress within her performance. It’s like she’s a little girl trying to imitate what she thinks a good actress would do. It’s bizarre. The only role I enjoy her in is The Devil Wears Prada, I love that movie and she was good in it. The other thing is, Catwoman is sexy. Anne Hathaway is the opposite of that to me. She is pretty, kind of, again reminds me of a little girl. I don’t know. I just can’t get behind it.
As far as her hosting the Oscars, I mean… who cares. It’s like, no one is there to see the hosts, you know? I want to see the awards. Last year, two of my favorite people on earth, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin hosted, so by default, this year will be disappointing. I’m on board with James Franco though. He is totally hilarious, and has the comedic chops necessary to be funny at the Oscars. I think he’ll do well. Anne doesn’t have that comedy sharpness to me, but I’m sure Rachel Zoe will put her in some great dresses and that’s what I want to see.
It’s fucking ridiculous. The Academy is jealous of Scorsese for being so damn flawless. I know I’m totally biased b/c of my allegiance to Marty and the many crew members I’ve worked with who worked on that movie, but honestly even if I totally separate myself from that, Shutter Island is a fucking masterpiece. The whole Scorsese and Leo thing is the main why I can’t ever be as obsessed with the Oscars as many other film junkies are. They just don’t mean as much to me. You come off as a joke when you ignore work as good as Shutter Island.
