If Jason Schwartzman is in it, I’ll watch it.
Finally, Betty White spends a few episodes making Community even better. If only she could be a series regular.
Also, I’ll offer my firstborn if someone can find a way to convince Danny Pudi and Donald Glover to be my friends.
Community is back tonight. Let the people rejoice!! Well, we’ll be rejoicing in my household at least.
Thus, this week’s photogenic is in honor of my favorite charming underachievers.
Side note, it’s remarkable when I waste time on the internet looking for these pictures how complete the dualism between photography of male vs. female celebs is. The men are so often looking dapper and intense, while the women are mostly naked and sultry. Now, I love dapper intensity and naked ladies as much as the next guy, but it gets a little ridiculous at a point.
Also, if you’re a person of color, good luck getting pictures taken of you. It was decidedly harder finding pictures of Danny Pudi and Yvette Nicole Brown than the rest of the cast, even though she’s been in the business for much longer than all but Chevy Chase (and that’s not meant to be a comment on her age, she’s just more accomplished than her Google image search gives her credit for).
Also, remember when Chevy Chase was young? Of course you do.
Sheesh, too much writing for a photogenic post.
He’s known and loved by many names; Nathan Fillion, Malcolm Reynolds, Captain Hammer, Rick Castle, the list goes on. Thus it is probably simpler to call him by his proper name = most likable guy ever.
Also, Castle is back for its third season tonight. I didn’t expect to love this show… but I do. I love it. There, I said it, I’m out of the Castle closet.
Dammit Ben Affleck, what’s the deal?
Mike isn’t going to like this post, because it is a stream of consciousness rant made the night of the movie, but here it is all the same. Hey Mike, the note on the car at the end of the movie, it’s for you.
But, back to you Affleck. I want to hate you. You were a joke for so long. The list of your crimes is as long as Don Draper’s list of sexual partners. Surviving Christmas, Armageddon, Jersey Girl, dating J-Lo, and of course, the universally hated Gigli. That leaves out plenty of movies and doesn’t even get into all those insane rants about the Red Sox and the Yankees that are so absurd that even Boston homer Bill Simmons wants no association with you.
There was a poll on some movie website, I think it was Cinematical, two or three years ago asking which movie star I would force into retirement if I had the power to do so. I had to go with two, Paul Walker, and you. Matt Damon is practically canonized in my heart, but you… I wished you would just go away.
Then you make Gone Baby Gone, a bit overrated perhaps, but still a good film, and certainly an impressive directorial debut. That began my confusion.
Then came your performance in Extract, where do you get off getting me to like one of your characters again?!?
Now, I go see a movie you directed on opening night?!? You made me do this, Benjamin, and I hate you for it, because I respect you again for the first time since Good Will Hunting. WTF?
I’m living my life, happily thinking of you as a no talent ass-clown, and what do you do? You go and help write an adaptation superbly tight and well-written. You give an understated performance that succeeds in anchoring the film, offering continuity to the rest of the film’s brilliant performances. And let’s not forget that the quality of every performance in the film points to two things, 1. a great cast, and 2, great direction; direction so good in fact that I’ll be pissed off if you don’t get nominated for Best Director.
What an asshole! This whole situation is insanely fucking inconsiderate of you.
I might start feeling affection toward you again. The last time that happened was when I watched a kid from South Boston as he felt contented satisfaction when he found out his best friend had skipped town.
I hope you are proud of yourself Mr. Garner. You wormed your way from being the guy who made movies I loved to hate, to the guy who makes movies that I hate to love.
The buzz for this movie is that it is pretty great. Based on the trailers alone, I’m not sure where the claims of originality come from, but I haven’t seen the movie yet. To me, the trailers so far promise a film that is part Cloverfield, part District 9, and part 28 Days/Weeks Later.
Regardless, personally, I am really looking forward to this film. So, since it was added to the list I made today in preparation for this year’s Halloween Moviefest, which just so happened to coincide with a newer trailer a week or so ago, I thought it was high time to include a trailer here on the site.
