"Readers who prefer tension and romance, Maledictions: The Offering, delivers... As serious YA fiction, I’ll give it five stars out of five. As a novel? Four and a half." - Liz Ellor
My new novel: Maledictions: The Offering. Now in Paperback!
The incredible look Laurie Metcalf gives when Lady Bird says “but what if this IS the best version of me” is not in the script, which should be an automatic Oscar for her
But that's just a Tuesday and not a casting call
The Last Jedi
Anyone see it?
EDIT: ...but it still hasn't stopped me from hoping one'll be good.
My main Direct-to-DVD animated complaints have been:
* the painful mediocrity of the generic house style and the resulting blandness that occurs when they try to deviate *slightly* from said house style, picking up a few arbitrary traits of the artist that they're adapting from (New Frontier, All-Star) while refusing to make the changes necessary to actually pick up on the strengths of said style (line weight, backgrounds, palettes, framing, etc.)
* The eye-rolling inclusions of the occasional curse words /PG-13-ness or whatever that manages to get jammed into nearly all of them, and without fail, stick out like a sore thumb.
* The failure to strongly separate any of the movies from each other, except on artificial levels, or to commit and connect them to each other.
And Hugh Grant almost steals the movie. The man is delightful.
Okay c'mon that was pretty good, why is it scored so low on RT and metacritic? It's a solid B-grader, that should be somewhere in the 80s, not the low 50s and 60s.
I kind of can’t believe that they’re using Pokémon from generations after the first in this. It’s a Hollywood movie that is acknowledging Victini!
And it’s filming in London where I believe the Detective Pikachu game’s city is based on. I know the Pokémon Company has really absurd quality control standards, but this is really impressive
He appears to just be here in the mortal realm trying to chill the fuck out.
But the universe just won't leave him alone!
I'm pretty sure David Koresh is the only name most people know when it comes to Waco
please don't be a Saving Mr. Banks please don't be a Saving Mr. Banks
Saving Mr. Banks was a much different situation
A famously prickly woman and someone we now know is kind of a monster, making Walt Disney look like a paragon of virtue and falsely making her look like she was ok with it
Unless I'm wrong and missed something, I don't think theres a dark skeleton in Fred Rodgers' closet to be papered over
He overfed those fish that one time
Do you know why he announced he was feeding the fish on his episode?
Sully would've been my go-to but too many people actually like that movie
(don't worry, that's a second copy of Bela Lugosi Meets A Brooklyn Gorilla.)
the barely translated kung fu flicks, however... those will be for another day.
But it ain't Tom Hanks.
Tom Hanks is White America's Safest, Whitest Actor, but that ain't mean shit for acting; just the acting equivalent of the best, tastiest bologna and mayo sandwich with a side of Lay's chips and a glass of skim milk to cut the spiciness.
Like... Tom Hanks would be lucky to have Fred Rogers portray him in a movie.
Tom Hanks is one of the greatest living American actors and arguably the most respected actor working today.
Tom Hanks is a fucking amazing actor and it has literally nothing to do with his race
I'm sure that being a white male helped him get ahead in hollywood, but it didn't make him a good actor. And he's one of the best actors of all time.
