To make up to Veloute for snickering at Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (giggle), my subject line is from One Fine Day. It didn't make my 100 embarrassing list, but eh...you know, if it was already ooooon...well, I might not change the channel...*hides* (Though I would still love to see both children in that film slowly tortured to death).
So far I bought Christian a swing. Hey, he needed "environment!" I tried to get him going with some ladies...I tried to hug this one slut and she was all "ugh!" so then I tried to flirt with this guy (hey, it let me! And you haven't seen Christian, what a swinger!) and he lost points!!! I surely hope you CAN flirt with a guy on this thing and score. Otherwise I'll be pissed.
But so far he's quite happy on the toilet, in his bed and with his hunger. And he makes 280 a week. Hmph. I gotta score him a hotter job. At least he's got the swing. But considering his aspiration is 'romance,' it may be dry for C for a while...
Anyhoo, #5. I know I said "from childhood up til now," but I will make this exception as far as specifics go, though I'm sure the trend irritated me as a youngster, though I can think of no specific example from that era. Even the Olsen twins were "actors."
#5. Dumb #$^$% shitheads who are "celebrities" for no fucking reason whatsoever.
I mean, seriously. Who the fuck is this and why do I know her name? No, REALLY. WHAT THE FUCK CAN SHE DO?? Lip sync and vomit? She has money? At least Britney Spears can supposedly "sing;" Lindsay Lohan can supposedly "act!" Paris Hilton is one of the ugliest, most vapid twats I've seen come across my computer screen in...shit, EVER. I hate to even discuss it as I prove my own point that she has succeeded in her ultimate dream to infiltrate the public mind. Money is the one and only reason she's NOT the podunk town whore you pay someone else ten bucks so you can do her in the ass with a bag on her head. She's THAT UGLY!! YES, HIT THE UGLY TREE AND HIT EVERY BRANCH ON THE WAY DOWN!! And she ALWAYS has that goddamn mouth-breathing high-off-her-ass expression.
I would easily part with considerable sums of money to personally pummel her face with brass knuckles cause I'm so GODDAMN SICK OF LOOKING AT IT.
Whoa, I'm sorry. Are these coming across as harsh?
#6. Trailers that are better than the movie.
When I first started working at Carmike, I was taught this lesson courtesy of Great Expectations and One Night Stand.
So here are my big three hopefuls for the season...and I'm hoping they don't fall under #6.
The Painted Veil
looks so steamy and depressing!
Notes On a Scandal
It's not going to end well, is it?
The Good German
Yum. Just yum.
And having seen it, I added this to my top ten of the year, but I warn you the trailer is way preachier (and more gooey) than the actual movie. (Could be a variation on complaint #6)...
