  1. I watched it. It was okay, but I've seen so much better coverage of the 50th anniversary over the last couple of months.

    I really wanted to like this show, because I love Noel Clarke and Clarke Peters, and a lot of the cast was quite good, but I got exactly 15 minutes into last night's episode (#3), decided life was too short, and changed the channel.

    He was very appealing, as was a lot of the rest of the cast. Too bad the movie around them was so lackluster.

    2020 Awards Season

    It's a small film which didn't get much play on this side of the Atlantic, so it'll probably be ignored come awards time, but I'd love to see Jessie Buckley get some awards love for her performance in Wild Rose.
  5. I think that's a reflection of how each immigrant group tends to treat the next wave of immigrants badly. For example, the Irish were treated like dirt when they got here, but when the Italians started coming into the country, the Irish treated them just as badly, if not worse. I don't loathe R&J, but I do hate how people treat it like some great romance and miss the point entirely.
  6. I was watching Get Him to the Greek last week, and realized that the whole Today Show scene, where Jonah Hill's character is desperately trying to find the lyrics to a song for Aldous Snow, would be eliminated by the use of a smart phone to google them. And that movie isn't even that old.

    Actors You Just Can't Stand

    Having finally seen Notting Hill this past weekend, I have to add: Julia Roberts. I don't get the appeal. The only performance of hers I've ever liked much was in Mystic Pizza, back before she was a star. Now I just find her acting stilted and brittle and bland.

    Notting Hill is not a good romantic comedy. It's neither particularly comedic, having only a few moments which I found even slightly amusing, nor romantic at all. I spent the entire movie wondering why, exactly, William wanted to be with a spoiled, entitled, self-absorbed bitch like Anna. There was absolutely nothing likeable, interesting or endearing about her character, and the way she used William to make herself feel better and then practically denied knowing him when he came to her movie set was unforgivable, imo.

    Not your point, but it was Joseph Conrad who wrote Heart of Darkness. Yeah, those are some inappropriate movies, especially Apocalypse Now.

    Who, What, When, Where?!: Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    So somebody who likes to bang famous people and write about it online. Aka fame whore. Me too, but I wouldn't throw Liam out of bed for eating crackers. He's grown on me.

    And then they were told not to. Sounds like a massive screw-up again. Maybe not on the level of Chernobyl, but still. A commentator on CNN the other night referred to it as "a flying Chernobyl" - god help me, I laughed out loud.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Awww, I actually like that one. Specifically because it is creepy. Although you're right, it wouldn't make me run out and get their insurance.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Yep, that was my point, he's not a very good singer. He's not awful, but he's what the Brits would call bog-standard. And the song's pretty bad, actually.

    I watched the re-run of the first episode last night, and I have to say I was not impressed. I like the chemistry between Pike and Bishop, but the police procedural aspects seem far too wannabe American, and there's no way any of those cases would even get to court with the inadmissibility of the evidence. I'll give it a little longer, because I really like Noel Clarke and I did enjoy their relationship, but if it doesn't improve, I'm probably out. Real shame.

    And I still have no idea, if that commercial is anything to go by.
