Why do people ask for your opinion about movies? Are they too ignorant to distinguish a good movie from a bad one?
i know you’re being a dick, but i’m going to answer anyway.
why does anyone ask anyone’s opinion about anything? you want validation of your own opinions, mostly. you want to know if this person you’re familiar with thinks & feels the same way you do, and if they don’t, why not? why do people read blogs? why do people care what any critic or writer has to say about things? this blog is pretty much a ‘taste profile,’ so maybe people feel more comfortable with my opinions on things because they know what i like and don’t like and know a little about ME, as opposed to a relatively anonymous byline.
i don’t think people are like, slavishly devoted to anything i have to say on here. i have enough faith in people’s knowledge of the film landscape that they can make their own decisions on what to watch, and why. this isn’t a news site, so it’s not like people are reading this blog to find out what any movie is necessarily about or when it’s coming out.
Do you believe he molested her? Apparently the head of a police appointed medical team gave testimony claiming it was very unlikely that she was molested and that she made it up due to the stress at home after they broke up.
i have no idea, i can’t even speculate. i’m not a doctor, lawyer, social worker, police officer, or member of their family. it is SO NOT MY BUSINESS and it’s not yours, either. obviously, there is some tremendous animus between woody allen & mia farrow and the fracturing of their family & divvying up of their children makes me very sad. the entire thing seems very painful and i wouldn’t wish that kind of stress on anyone.
no. brad pitt was the producer & the best picture oscar goes to the producer(s). truth is, 12YAS would never have been made without plan b behind it. plus, mcqueen was so fucking adorable, i’m glad he got the last word of the night.
What was the reaction in the auditorium, if any, when the most gimmicky performance in the whole bunch stole Leo DiCaprio's deserved Oscar?
the gross peons in the ‘fan experience’ were all dallas buyers club & american hustle & jennifer lawrence & frozen fans. i was definitely throwing shade at them. it seemed marya & i were the only ones who had even seen HER or NEBRASKA. we were very loud when spike jonze won & nobody even cared. OH WELL.
poor leo. he’ll just have to comfort himself with his millions of dollars, unlimited supermodel vagina & creatively fulfilling working relationships with some of cinema’s all-time greatest filmmakers. WOMP WOMP LEO.
very pleased with the oscar ceremony. spike jonze & lupita won, so i really have no complaints. justice was served. also, ellen kept everything moving along nicely. very chummy, friendly vibe. watching the ceremony on the big screen made the evening go very fast! (plus, they fed us real food, which was very appreciated). we missed ellen’s monologue bc they moved us from the bleachers to the el capitain kind of late.
anyway, how’d you guys think the ceremony went? happy with the winners?
