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

Olympic-ness
Slate an interesting share on the extremely rigid rules about figure skating at the Olympics. I knew same sex couples were not allowed but I did not know any of these rules about costuming and I was just wondering aloud the other day why the costumes were so monotonous from year to year apart from color changes and the occassional surprise of where the bejazzlements occur.

Wow, you can almost see Matt Damon's taint in that fax.

Frozen still has some juice to squeeze from China and is just about to hit Japan. 1.12 billion as final box office total.

Wow! That costume clip from '68 is a mindblower. The sight of the boogyin' down Eleanor of Aquitaine & King Henry, plus Romeo & Juliet cutting a rug along with the other nominees is proof that bad Oscar production numbers aren't a recent thing. Was that Joey Heatherton as one of the first group of dancers? It was all wonderfully ghastly.

Jane, just a breath away from becoming a temporary pariah, in her They Shoot Horses, Don't They? hairdo and awesome jeweled pantsuit with the feather cuffs seems to be getting a kick out of the sideshow aspect of the number though.

Jane Fonda in a big wig and fur-trimmed translucent pantsuit, shimmying along with the funk band as dancers interpret the costumes of period-piece dramas: this is EVERYTHING.

Its a wonder the Lion in Winter pair didn't strangle themselves or each other and I thought it was Goldie Hawn in the first set. Jane looked awesome.

I miss when actors dressed themselves. Now the Dior people are the only train wrecks waiting to happen.

I had to read the article on Bill Murray, well to be honest I was more flying through all of it than reading all of it, but I want to share that I love what is said about "What About Bob?", which was the first Bill Murray movie I've ever seen!

February 18, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDominik

What About Bob? is one of my all time favorites. "Baby Steps."

did you see Dean Burnett's piece on the Guardian about Ellen Page "coming out as a mutant"?
