Anonymous asked: Bordwell is actually an emeritus professor at my university (University of Wisconsin-Madison), and as I'm a student worker in the film studies department, he stops in from time to time. I'm always way too starstruck to say anything, but this time I had the courage to not only offer him my umbrella, but to also talk to him briefly about Shoshanna Dreyfus (who is featured on the new edition of Film Art he was dropping off). It. Was. Awesome. He's very sweet!

that awkward moment when you drive out to L.A. for a movie you’ve already bought a ticket for and you’re running late but you get there sort of on time but then you can’t find parking for half an hour and then you look at the clock and just give up and go home and then there’s traffic on the way home and you end up spending 3 hours driving to and from no where, for no reason
yeah. that happens to everyone right?

WHY DOES THE TCM FILM FESTIVAL HATE ME SO MUCH

“oh, that was so cute!”
fat babies are cute. otters are cute. your middle school boyfriend was cute.
movies are not cute.
Just caught ten minutes on TV because, heck, I’ll give it a chance; how bad could it possibly be?
In ten minutes of film, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything more offensive: racism, sexism, jingoism, terrible dialogue, improbable story and characters, visual cliches, ugly color palette, incomprehensible action sequences….
It’s like someone took the worst stereotypes of American culture and Hollywood filmmaking and set out to produce the be-all and end-all apex of those stereotypes.
I know this is pretty morally outraged, but, Jesus, I did not expect TRANSFORMERS to be THAT bad.
