    Tyler Perry also specifically mentions if he knew David Fincher's body of work he'd have said no
    I wonder what he finds so distasteful

    He might have been joking.

    With Bill Murray, it is very difficult to tell.

    (My favorite Bill Murray story: It is said that he goes up behind random people, puts his hands over their eyes, and says "Guess who?" When they guess, he remains visible just long enough to tell them "No-one will ever believe you." before vanishing into the crowd.)

    Even when he's crashing parties, Bill Murray is polite. During a 2006 trip to St. Andrews, Scotland, for a celebrity golf tournament, Murray accompanied 22-year-old anthropology student Lykke Stavnef—whom he and his friends had met in a bar—to a house party. "Nobody could believe it when I arrived at the party with Bill Murray," she told The Telegraph. Murray then washed all the dishes in the students' sink. "It was really funny because he was pretty old compared with all the other people there, but he was so relaxed and it was really amusing when he started to wash up," Stavnef said.

    I... don't get your example. Bill Murray joined Garfield explicitly because he heard the writer's name was Joel Cohen and wrongly assumed he was Joel Coen (of the Coen brothers) and made his decision based on the Coens' reputation.

    Doesn't Fincher have a somewhat troublesome reputation for casting couch type things?

    I was told this a few months ago but all I can dig up is this interview with Vogue that is just weird and not really confirmation or explicitly gross
    As Fincher talks about the film, his heroine, Mara—with Salander’s awesomely strange hair, bleached eyebrows, and facial piercings—sits next to him, looking for all the world like a troubled college student who takes too much Adderall. She hangs on his every word, her eyes lit with admiration. Their relationship, it quickly becomes clear, is charged with the electric current of the mentor-protégée crush, which is both touching and occasionally uncomfortable to watch. Or, as Daniel Craig, who costars as a crusading journalist named Mikael Blomkvist, says about their working relationship, “It’s fucking weird!”

    When a waiter appears to take our order, we are all looking at our menus, but I see out of the corner of my eye Fincher nudging Mara. He says with quiet seriousness, “You can eat.” I look up to see her reaction. Mara rolls her eyes, and Fincher laughs. “You can have lettuce and a grape. A raisin if you must.” She orders a piece of fish and barely touches it. In the book, Salander is described as boyish and awkward, “a pale, anorexic young woman who has hair as short as a fuse. . . .” Noomi Rapace, the magnetic star of the Swedish versions, looked more like Joan Jett. “One of the things that make our version that much more heartbreaking,” says Mara, “is that even though I am playing a 24-year-old, I look much younger. I look like a child.” I ask if she had to get unhealthily skinny for the role. She says, “Umm . . . not really.”
    “It hasn’t been too hard for her,” Fincher quickly adds.

    So who knows why Tyler Perry is weird

    This is from a very active SJW friend but sometimes she can get a bit carried away and since I can't seem to find anything othet than that weird interview with Mara I bet she was just running off of something she heard

    I'm still baffled. The original comment was disbelief that Perry didn't recognize Fincher's name, whereas Murray DID recognize Coen's name (it just happened to be a different Joel Cohen).

    I'm not sure what your example is an example of.

    Considering the prevalence of "SWF" that's honestly what I thought SJW stood for when it first started appearing.

    I find Tyler Perry incredibly problematic as a black person. On one hand I haven't enjoyed any if the movies I've seen of his. And find his heavy handed moralizing disgusting.

    But.... He seems to be the only dude putting out majority black cast films, and making any money at it. And I 'm kind of completely sick off black characters still being side characters and the first to die. So that some white can achieve his destiny or whatever. And my grandmother likes his films. Doesn't she also deserve movies she can enjoy amid the slew of comic books/twee bullshit/mumblcore that I eat up?

    I suppose there's actually nothing stopping me from seeing both, as long as I don't mind being a no-friends loser for one of them.

    Something I am quite a pro at.

    Lucy is fun, but extremely silly. The plot is exceptionally light, and it's almost all spectacle.

    There is, of course, nothing wrong with that, but I wouldn't put it in the same category as Citizen Kane or The Godfather. Or was that the joke?

    Funny that Scarlett Johansson was in both Lucy and Under the Skin in the same year. For similar concepts, you couldn't have two more different movies.

    we don't joke about lucy in here
