"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

Pic 1: Charlize thinking "I'm like Wile E. Coyote. Can live through explosions with only soot on my face."
Pic 2: Is this going to lead to an orgy? It is Mad Max, after all.

Pic 1:
Charlize: Get the picnic basket and hop in. Tell your sisters we're ready to go.

Pic 2:
Him: What's wrong with this picnic table?
Charlize: It's too crowded. And we like to sit closer to the lake.
Him: Awww! Why do we always have to sit where there's NOBODY? Again!

Oscar numero dos here I come!

Pic 1: Naturally I get taken home first. Well, obviously he prefers April. Of course I was so tongue-tied all night. I can't believe I said that about the Guggenheim. My stupid rollerskating joke. I should never tell jokes. Mom can tell 'em and Hannah, but I kill 'em. Where did April come up with that stuff about Adolph Loos and terms like "organic form"? Well, naturally. She went to Brandeis. But I don't think she knows what she's talking about. Could you believe the way she was calling him David? "Yes, David. I feel that way, too, David. What a marvelous space, David." I hate April. She's pushy.

Pic 2: Look at all these people, trying to stave off the inevitable decay of their bodies.

Mad Max as directed by Woody Allen. I fancy it!

PIC 1: Charlize, the new banner theme is mascara running DOWN your face, not up it. Stop trying to make burnt happen, it's not going to happen!

Pic 1- What? I am not allowed to shout in this movie?

Pic 2- Is this the new Harry Potter ride?

On the drive home, Charlize and her crew slowly come to realize that they did not enjoy this year's Lollapalooza: and what's more, they cannot remember a time that they did.

Pic 1: "Say I'm brave for 'de-glamming' one. More. Time. I dare you."

Pic 1: Charlize gives Sigourney realness.
Pic 2: Charlize gives "Sigourney driving the kids to school" realness.

Picture 1: This is probably the easier picture to come up with a fitting gag for, mostly since "bald woman coated in soot" is an extremely easy springboard.
Picture 2: Surprised it wasn't JJsDiner, actually. Only one person looks nearly "scared" enough for "It's...It's Mel! Drive!" to work as a gag caption for that picture. It'd work if it looked like most to all of them were all going out of their skin with fear. Maybe Nicholas Hoult, at the outside, is scared enough, but everyone else looks way too bored. But the bored concert attendees gag makes perfect sense with that caption (the scared looking Nicholas Hoult as "the lone guy who enjoyed the concert" makes more sense as well), even if you have no knowledge of Mad Max, which my gag relies on. Still, coming up with a gag that perfectly fits "gaggle of bored looking people in a gnarly looking car" and non fans of Mad Max can understand is ludicrously difficult, so I guess I shouldn't blame you for choosing a gag that doesn't really fit the emotions captured in the picture.

I won! Yeah!!...

st jeans -- so you have to pick a banner theme.

So glad my husband Séphane St-Jean won first prize

Tom Fletcher

So since I saw "Obvious Child" and I think Jenny Slate should be a contender for an Oscar nomination (she was THAT awesome (and I will annoy you with this for the rest of the year)) I say the banner should be an actress (and of course you too Nate) who diid a pregnancy test and got a surprise / disappointment / depression... by the result ...

July 1, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterstjeans

stjeans -- but it has to be something that's legible in a tiny strip with just the face!

July 1, 2014 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

reaction shot!

July 1, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterstjeans

Woo hoo!

My banner suggestion is death stares (aka side eye, throwing shade, stank face).
