The Brass Teapot (2013) - Juno Temple

"When a couple discovers that a brass teapot makes them money whenever they hurt themselves, they must come to terms with how far they are willing to go."

Directed by Ramaa Mosley
Starring Juno Temple & Alexis Bledel

This actually looks pretty fun, depending on how far they decide to go with the 'R' rating. At first, the trailer looks like a fairytale style story, but it looks like it might get a bit darker. And Temple...can't complain. I'm sure some of you will love the lingerie she's wearing.

Looks fun to me too, and also curious how bad they'll make them go. I don't really see what the big deal is about Temple though (remembering comments about her for Dark Knight Rises, and the other day for Sin City 2)

Reviews have been pretty brutal across the board, but, um, I liked it.

The trailer starts funny but gets really sappy lame as it goes.

I feel awkward watching movies when Temple gets naked - especially in Killer Joe where she looked like she was 14.

fwiw, the reviews are bad but far from brutal. Most seem to think it played it too safe and had no depth.

Re: The Brass Teapot (2013) - Juno Temple

Movie was way too long but I liked the central idea of it. The trailer sold it far more cutesy than it actually is.

I think my favorite line was "Oh my God, Wizards!" and I was really hoping
Spoiler:
the asian guy killed the two of them when they gave him the teapot.

I liked it too, a lot! I'd give it an 8.5/10.

Temple is naked in 85% of her filmography. Now, Alexis Bledel, on the other hand...

And...does she show her tits a lot? I have it queued up and paused but refuse to hit play until I know for sure.

There might be a flash at one point, but that's about it. She does, however, spend a lot of the movie in very skimpy clothing that leaves very little to the imagination.

The context isn't all that erotic though, it feels more disturbing than anything, the whole tone of that film is discomforting.
