COMMENT(s) DU JOUR
TWO OPINIONS ON MAPS TO THE STARS
Nathaniel's Julianne Spazzing & Glenn's Cronenberg Finger Wagging 

"There is a great movie in Maps of the Stars and that is the one Moore stars in, not the one the screenplay insists in bringing to the front." - Mr Goodbar

"If I had to guess why Cronenberg went with a largely "invisible" or even non-style style, I'd say it has to do with his approach to the narrative, which is kind of a bait and switch, setting us up for a hollywood satire and then giving us a final act that plays more like a myth or a fairy tale." -Roark

Curio: Just Keep Livin'

Alexa here. My personal highlight of the Golden Globes this year, and of my Sunday night, was Matthew McConaughey.  I'm glad that all the prognostication over the last few years finally payed off with a win for him. And I loved/found it hilarious how "on brand" he was with his speech (opening it with "alright alright alright" and closing with a variation of "just keep livin").

 

Right after the show I threw "True Detective" on, and it couldn't have lived up to the hype more, with McConaughey delivering yet another career-high performance in the first episode.  Since the chances of a Wooderson-esque speech at the Oscars are probably still low, let's celebrate this moment with some curios in the Texan's honor.

More after the jump including bongos...

I was wondering if MM would acknowledge Sandra Bullock in his speech. He became a household name with A Time to Kill (which was on TBS the other day).

^what does Sandra Bullock have to do with that?

January 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAnonny

Um... She was in it with him. If I remember correctly, Sandra was the marketing hook but McConaughey got all the press.

Get it, McCanaughey! I'm here for all of his deserved Oscar run, baby!

I liked MM in DBC. While a lot of actors could have played the role, he was supremely suited to it.

3rtful, rein it in, baby. How could alleged systematic sexism, racism and homophobia ever be worse than an individual Oscar winner? Time to reexamine priorities, bro.

January 14, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

oops, typo, meant "ever be better"!!

January 14, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

I'd like to see him play someone from outside the Texas/Louisiana corridor (Wolf doesn't count). No range.
