Delayed response.

Back from the holidays. A few things that I really should've blogged about ages ago:

  1. Josh sent me an e-mail with that image attached. He was concerned that the joke might be wearing thin. Nope.

  2. Let me jump on the blogger-cliche bandwagon (again): Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable" is fantastic. I'm not the biggest B-supporter, but I can whole-heartedly get behind this shit. The simple drum programming and acoustic strum... the way she tentatively hits those high notes when she sings "I could have another you in a minute..." Yup, that works nicely. (The remix with Ghostface is even sicker. Hurry over to Rich Fourfour's place and snag it.)

  3. Yes, Casino Royale is as a fun as you've heard. Afer the first hour it sags a little, but I dare you to deny it. And, yes, I feel a little dead inside for enjoying something that has Paul Haggis's name attached to it.

  4. Ever since he left Slate, I've been really bad about keeping up with David Edelstein. I really should try to keep up with him because he's not only insightful, he makes me laugh. From his review of The Fountain:
    "The movie would be more bearable without the unyielding score by Clint Mansell, which somehow melds the worst of Minimalism, art rock, and New Age music. It's what you'd hear if your massage therapist wanted to induce a stroke."

  5. Speaking of Slate: thank you, Bryan Curtis.

I agree about Curtis, too. I was going to blog about "For Your Consideration" but then I realized the movie was too boring to even bother with. I like Guest's earlier films, a lot, because while they aren't really very good parodies they are immensely hilarious. But this new one is just boring. It has a few funny moments, most of which are jokes recycled from past films (poor Jennifer Coolidge!) so what's the fucking point?

Of course, if my tiny penis couldn't fit inside my wife's exceptionally small vaginal entroitus, I'd probably make shitty movies too.

Confession: I haven't actually seen FYC. After Best In Show and Mighty Wind, I'm done. Finished. Over. I'll always have a warm spot in my heart for Guffman, but it's been a huge decline every movie since. And based on the trailer and footage I've seen... it just looks so toothless.
