Re: Lovelace (2013) (D: Epstein/Friedman; S: Seyfried, Sarsgaard, Franco, Azaria, Tem

I felt bad for her when reading her books precisely because she was a dummy. Her lack of common sense and gullibility facilitated her being taken advantage of not only by Trainor, a sadist, but the...

re: Arrested Development (Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- 5/26/13

One of my favorite jokes is how George Michael hates his name because of George Michael's public restroom bust, then goes and changes it to George Maharis. An actor who was busted for having sex in...

re: Arrested Development (Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- 5/26/13

Is it just me or does it seem like many critics are savaging these episodes just to tear down the mythological status they helped, in part, to create for AD? It's almost uncomfortable to read, but I...

Re: New Arrested Development episodes in the works

Since when has AD been "off-the-cuff and improvised"? It has been reiterated time and time again just how tightly scripted it is and how very little is improvised.

Re: Finales: Lost VS Sopranos

The entire final season of Lost was a total mess, but that absurd finale took it to another level of awfulness. The cherry on top was the bright white light of the afterlife. It still makes me howl.

Re: Star Trek for the Uninitiated

When I was younger, I loved them (First Contact and Insurrection being my favorites). Now? They are torturous to sit through, save First Contact. I revisited them just recently because of this...

Re: The One and Only KITCHEN NIGHTMARES / HELL'S KITCHEN Thread

The dumbass even admitted on Facebook that her baked goods are store-bought, then compared her reselling them to Walmart selling electronics that they didn't actually make.

Re: Which Is Worse: Star Trek I or V?

Final Frontier is bad because of the three films that preceded it. Sure, it's goofy pandering and one gets the sense that the only reason Shatner is in the director's chair is because his ego...

Re: Star Trek for the Uninitiated

I'd never show anyone Star Trek: The Motion Picture in an attempt to get them into Star Trek. It's visual Ambien.

Might as well start with Wrath of Khan. If you like it, you'll most likely end...

Re: RIP Chrissy Amphlett (Lead singer of Divinyls)

Have you heard the rerecorded version they did of Pleasure and Pain in '93? It's very different, but darker.

It's staggering how many great songs they recorded, there really aren't many duds to...

Re: RIP Chrissy Amphlett (Lead singer of Divinyls)

I know she's been sick for a long time, but I'm still shocked at this news. She was on television just last year after having balloon angioplasty in her neck; the effects of her MS were hard to...

Re: Hemlock Grove - new Netflix series from Eli Roth starting 4/19/13

The tone of this show is so utterly bizarre, I'm digging it.

Re: Shameless -- Season Finale -- "Survival of the Fittest" -- 4/07/13

Hopefully they are. Two of the most boring characters. They only exist at this point as a way to exhibit Jimmy's bulging forehead veins every time he whines about his situation & Ian's cloying...

Re: The Walking Dead -- Season Finale -- "Welcome to the Tombs" -- 3/31/13

Killing off Andrea was bullshit. It was a cop-out after an entire season of annihilating the character; almost as if the writers had contempt for the character after their own mistreatment of it and...

Re: Michelle Shocked has lost her mind

That audio is full of gems.

My favorites are when she insinuates that she's too black for her black church & when she begs for money from the audience at the end because she knows she won't be...

Re: The Walking Dead -- "Arrow on the Doorpost" -- 3/10/13

Good episode. The commercial breaks destroyed the tension each segment generated, though.

I'm assuming Andrea told The Governor about the weapons after she went to Rick to set up the meet? ...

Re: Bowie is back!!! First album in 10 years in March

Lindsey, Mick & John recorded almost a full album this past year (eight songs, I believe). Then Stevie came in and worked on two of the songs and then they recorded an old Buckingham Nicks demo...

Re: The Walking Dead - "I Ain't a Judas" -- 02/24/2013

That was the point. Would the entire "town" support his bloodlust if he had simply played it off as "Oops, Merle made a mistake, guys..."? No.

Re: Rob Zombie's Lords Of Salem (2012)

Even Carpenter's stinkers have a fun sensibility to them. He doesn't pretend to be more than the DIY B-movie man that he is, which even makes turgid shit like Ghosts of Mars enjoyable on some level....

Re: Community -- Season Premiere -- "History 101" -- 2/07/13

Re: Community -- Season Premiere -- "History 101" -- 2/07/13

I find it hard to reconcile the complaints NBC had for Harmon about how bizarre & lacking in mainstream appeal the show was with this episode. It was surely one of the wackiest episodes of the show...
