I wouldn't. (Not that I have any.) Who can look at young, slick movie stockbrokers without picturing them as axe-wielding "Patrick Bateman"s anymore?
Where were we? Oh, new releases: Shia Labeouf wants to marry into the Gordon Gekko "greed is good" business in the unfortunately topical Wall Street sequel WALL STREET MONEY NEVER SLEEPS; your annual Woody Allen fix is called YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER; James Franco is gay poet Allen Ginsberg in HOWL; Titles as long as LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA'HOOLE are their own plot synopsis; the all star female cast of YOU AGAIN promises cross-generational frenemy humor; and Davis Guggenheim, who won an Oscar for directing Al Gore's environmental speech An Inconvenient Truth, returns with a buzzy doc about the failing American education system called WAITING FOR SUPERMAN. Will Oscar strike him twice?
What did you make of the second season Glee premiere? This show is always so schizo, justifying both über fandom and biting critiques. I'm anxiously awaiting my promised boxed set but I wonder if it'll hold up on second view. At the very least there will always be those Kristin Chenoweth moments to savor. Here's to the ladies who don't need vocoders! (Then again, Lea Michele doesn't need one either and they keep shoving it on her anyway.)
Until Hollywood steps up its game and delivers regular movie musicals, those of us who live for them must love Glee even when it doesn't deserve our squealing fandom. Which is roughly, what, half the time? Modern Family's first season is also out on DVD so you can compare and contrast. Emmy made the right choice.
Is Mindy Cohn (The Facts of Life) really the godmother to the Brangelina twins? I swear I spend one day off the internet and I miss a piece of gossip this fun and weirdly believable.
Did any of you catch God of Carnage on stage? Marcia Gay Harden was so fantastic in her Tony winning turn but it looks like Jodie Foster is taking over for the movie version. Roman Polanski will direct Foster as well as Kate Winslet, Matt Dillon and that Basterd Christoph Waltz. Jodie's never done a movie like this, so I hope she's up to the task.
That's how I carry on each time Juli loses the Oscar. Maybe she and Annette Bening with get Hers & Hers Best Actress nominations this year (they're both campaigning as leads in a rare case of truth in advertising) for their excellent duet in The Kids Are All Right.
