Marvin WaitForIt Erickson.– T: M posted this in a post previously. R and I finally caught up on How I Met Your Mother today. Best name ever.
I found echoes of Tom Sawyer, Stand By Me and Shane in this impressive work.– Pete Hammond of Deadline M: Wow - now I want to see Mud. Apparently, Matthew McConaughey impressed twice at Cannes this year. T: Agreed!!
People We Love
Everybody in Best in Show. I agree with the A. Whenever I need a laugh, I watch this. Jennifer Coolidge, Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Christopher Guest — too many - they are all fantastic. coenbrosbeforehos: Movies of 2012: #113: Best in Show (2000) Directed by Christopher Guest Grade: A
Wow - so annoyed by the spam in my message box
M: I would LOVE to make money via advertising or meet the love of my life on Tumblr; but if we’re on here, do you really think we’re that gullible?
M Critique - Bernie
With Richard Linklater, you always know that you’re going to get something unique, and Bernie was certainly that. A tale of a friendship between a wildly popular small-town mortician (sorry - Assistant Funeral Director) and a miserly, crotchety (I love that word) widow that starts out incredibly sweetly but then goes horribly awry. When I learned that it was based on a true story (!!!), I...
M Critique: The Five-Year Engagement
Certainly better than average for a romantic comedy. The cast has really good bench depth and did a fantastic job. I love Jason Segel and Emily Blunt in pretty much everything they do, but the supporting cast was SO strong. Chris Pratt and Alison Brie as best man/sister were genius (v. impressed with Alison’s British accent). I didn’t recall going in that this was an Apatow...
What to Do this Weekend
M: Yay! Long weekend. So long I didn’t even publish this on Friday. Top things to do this Memorial Day weekend: See a movie. If you haven’t seen The Avengers, see that first. Of movies opening this weekend, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom looks the most promising. Go to the beach, but not Venice - I don’t want you crowding up my bike path. Day drinking - can be...

What to Watch, 5-25-12, Part 2
M: Fashion Police is on E! at 7PM PT tonight. I love the hour format - it’s not too much Joan, I swear. She’s still hilarious.
What to Watch, 5-25-12
T: You’re free to take a break from TV. There’s not one thing worth your while. Hello Summer!
Just Watched Revenge Finale - GASP!
M: T, the EW recap was very thorough (and I can’t believe you read all 5 pageviews — way to hold out, champ), but it’s nothing like watching the episode itself. I’m so shocked & satisfied & on the edge of my seat! Sidebar on Faux Amanda: why doesn’t real Amanda shut that bitch down now?! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT UNTIL SEPTEMBER?!!!!!????? T:...

What to Watch, 5-24-12
T: In what will be a trend until cable picks up the slack on occasional evenings, I’ve got pretty much nothing to reco. I just can’t get into So You Think You Can Dance. And I’ve sworn off singing competitions for the foreseeable future, so no Duets for me, even as much as I adore Kelly Clarkson (FOX is pissed!). I don’t even have a late night round up! There’s...
