    This was already posted.
  2. As I said, he just did them a favor:
  3. I thought you didn't even watch the show, Khan!
  4. John, you just make stuff up off the top of your head when you get excited. He was filming regularly at that time. It was a creative change.

    HBO: Big Little Lies

    It's funny you should mention that bc I rewatched that the other day and thought about just this topic. I think Meryl's work in the (flawed, but decent) Manchurian Candidate remake - especially the scene above - was one of her last sharp performances before she descended into playing campy, somewhat anesthetized images of herself for almost a decade. Playing "Meryl Streep being Meryl Streep" by way of dreamy, snarky Miranda from Devil Wears Prada because an industry unto itself. In MC she is on point and on fire - I think the inspiration there was George W. Bush cohort Karen Hughes, among others. I don't think she came back from that til The Post, where she was unafraid to be 1) vulnerable again and 2) weak or frustrating for a portion of the film, as opposed to the cliche Meryl Streep post-2000s image of the dragon lady/dry wit madam. She did a great job in that film, and too few saw it. I hear she's good on BLL but I have yet to watch the show.
  6. After some decent strides for several months from her, AOC's crew is fùcking up again. If she's smart (and she isn't always) she'll disassociate herself from this and from her CoS who just reignited the Sharice Davids thing.
  7. The increasingly ubiquitous Mckenna Grace (ex-Faith, Y&R) looks to be channeling Harold Ramis' Egon on the set of the new Ghostbusters with Jason and Ivan Reitman, Carrie Coon and Finn Wolfhard.

    This doesn't surprise me. I never believed HBO was ready to allow a director as unconventional as Andrea Arnold (who's brilliant - see Red Road, with Kate Dickie, among other things) tackle this. Vallée is also brilliant, but he and Arnold are different.
  9. Originally Billy Clyde was supposed to be Celia's father, or so he claimed. They filmed the scenes but cut them pending a rewrite.
  10. Will should never have been tamed after the E.J. thing. But doing it with DID or a medical condition is not the answer.
