I've never believed in suicide, but... it might cheer me up to watch you do it.
So we saw this trailer in front of The Simpsons last night, and I ask you, is it just me? Am I being overly sensitive, or is this just the most foul trailer ever? It's the end I'm talking about; is this really suitable for general audiences? That's fucking disgusting! Is that really necessary?
At least The Simpsons was great--I enjoyed it a lot, much more than I expected. They aren't kidding with that PG-13, either! (Which I bet you most parents probably didn't even pay attention to). It had several things that surprised me. And I was also really glad we saw it on the big screen; it really was part of the experience in this case (being a TV show and all...)
I just can't stress how shit the trailers were. They're already pumping Christmas movies and they all look exceedingly wretched.
I am curious to see Stardust, though, which comes out next week. I've finally had enough of those trailers pounded into my head to want to see it. It has potential, but I'm afraid for it. It's also going to be hard to watch Claire Danes and take her seriously. What a dingy broad, jeez. All I'll be able to hear is her in my head (as seen on The Daily Show a few weeks ago) going, "So, I went to Cali for my vaca..." Because whole words like vacation are a real bitch. Even Buffy wouldn't have pulled that one.
