  1. Unpopular Opinions

    I refuse to see Steel Magnolias. As someone born in the North (Massachusetts), but who's lived in the South since the age of 7, I get sick to death of hearing about how Southern women are strong and beautiful, Northern women are weak and ugly, blah, blah, blah... FUCK THAT. The Northern women are my family are beautiful, strong, and amazing in every conceivable way, especially my late grandmother, and anyone who says otherwise is on my shit list for life. How fucking dare anyone make such ignorant, moronic generalizations. And I agree, Shelby was a selfish cunt who deserved to die.

    Next time a southerner calls you that, just say, "Yeah, we won, you lost, get over it."
  3. Movie Star Crushes

    Agreed, he played Superman perfectly: stalwart, sincere, and with just enough of a twinkle in his eye to keep the character from being dull, in a "yeah, this is kind of silly, but isn't it also kind of wonderful?" sort of way. Let's just pretend the last 2 films never happened. And you're absolutely right, Reeve was so handsome it was almost comical (Cary Grant and Timothy Dalton also fit this description), with those broad shoulders and movie star grin. I gotta say, Will Reeve sure favors his dad. Dammit, 14 years later and I still miss the guy.
  4. Pet Peeves

    I've worked at B&N, McDonalds, and the public library... trust me when I say I've seen some shit.
  5. Pet Peeves

    Whoa, someone did that to you??? That's unforgivable!! I don't know what to say, except I hope karma bit that little shit sandwich where it hurt! >:(
  6. Pet Peeves

    I hate, hate, HATE having my picture taken. Haaaaate. I learned at the tender age of 18 that I just do not photograph well: my normally straight nose curves to the side when I smile, my eyes do weird things, my hair never looks good (when I say never, I know of what I speak), I have a squishy jawline that's only getting worse the older I get, and for some sadistic reason, family members want to take my picture when I am in crappy clothes and no makeup on. I'm kicking myself because I let myself get bullied into being in a group picture, even though I had a lousy day and looked like the wrath of twenty gods. I seriously can't stand effortlessly photogenic people, and don't get me started on how disgusting I look in selfies.
  7. Gender in Movies

    Crazy, Stupid, Love is such a popular talking point, I decided to go ahead and make a whole topic in the Movies thread for y'all to discuss it. You're welcome. :)
  8. Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)

    I confess I have yet to see this movie, and based on the mountainous scorn people on these boards have for it, I doubt I want to. Be that as it may, I've noticed Crazy, Stupid, Love is one of most popular movies to talk about around here (right up there with A League of Their Own and The Family Stone... huh, that rhymes), so here's a whole topic to the movie featuring Ryan Gosling just before he became a meme, and Julianne Moore as a character so unsympathetic, she should have been in The Family Stone.
  9. I adored Londo Mollari from Babylon 5 (how's that for showing my age?)... but considering the epic fuck-ups he was capable of, any goodwill I'd have would go down the toilet. Saul Goodman, for obvious reasons. I'm a lifelong Lisa Simpson defender, but considering I haven't watched new episodes of The Simpsons since roughly 2000 or 2001, and what I've read of the whiplash inducing crap Lisa has either done or been through... who can say? I like Kate Pearson from This is Us, but I think she'd be a real pill and difficult for me to be friends with.
  10. Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    Next week's the season finale, I might give it up after that. Hate-watching ain't healthy.
  11. Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    I've got a whopper of a UO: I vastly prefer Randall to Kevin on This is Us. I find Kevin to be a loathsome, irresponsible, narcissistic, punchable, selfish, hedonistic douchenozzle (with the most punchable face on TV) who never, ever, ever suffers the consequences of his actions. Lord knows Randall has his faults, but at least the majority of his actions come from a more or less good place (and he at least apologizes when he wrongs someone). I'll admit to a bias: a lot of my Randall love stems from my deep and abiding love for Sterling K. Brown. And another thing: am I the only one sick to her eyeteeth of all these TV man-babies and their damned man-pain and how they never get theirs in spite of the emotional havoc they wreak?

    I still wish I knew why reality TV is still a thing.
  13. Let's take a moment to talk teeth: I'm not subversive, I appreciate straight, white teeth just as much as the next person, but I'm so above and beyond over veneers. Look, if I could afford cosmetic dental work for nicer, whiter teeth, I'd go for it, but can't celebrities know when to say when so they don't look so phony and Uncanny Valley? I don't know who people like Tom Cruise think they're fooling, but it ain't me. Too many people in Hollywood are starting to look like cheesy, aging lounge singers. I recently saw Black Panther, and Chadwick Boseman, a dashing, handsome man, has slightly less than perfect teeth. I'm certainly not implying they're bad, and this is not a backhanded jab in any way; the opposite, in fact, because I think they give his face distinction and character. It doesn't detract from his looks one iota (I mean, surely y'all have seen Black Panther by now, right?). It's kind of refreshing to see a leading man who doesn't have teeth that look like bathroom tiles.

    Agreed, I will always fondly remember Kate Winslet's ginger days. Also, Mandy Moore is such a good brunette, even those old enough to remember her ingenue pop star days forget she's a natural blonde. Blonde hair is lovely, make no mistake, but not everyone can pull it off; in fact, I mentioned in a previous post how dreadful I thought Elizabeth Taylor looked as blonde Amy in Little Women. I can also think of plenty of contemporary actresses who just can't carry off flaxen tresses (I'm especially looking at you, Allison Williams).

    I'm sorry you have to deal with that, and I hope I didn't give the impression that I hate blondes or that they deserve to be discriminated against; I just don't like how dark hair is seen as unattractive ("too severe!" is the one I hear the most often) or is often used as a negative color code in fiction. I still bristle at that "I had a nightmare I was a brunette" shirt that was popular at Abercrombie and Fitch way back when. No one should have to apologize for their hair color... ever. Always remember, everyone: positive and negative stereotypes can be equally damaging.
