GOODIES: You call yourself a fan?

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Loving stuff is fun.  Making clubs are fun.  Getting high and watching ‘Seventeen Again’ on opening night with two other closeted lovers of Zac Efron is really fun.  Organizing such events is why I create and keep up with and recruit members to things I am commonly referring to as ‘Crush Clubs‘.  But there are many designations and I need some help.  Lemme break it down…

First up, the standard ‘Crush Club‘ – so far I have three.  The Channing Tatum Crush Club, or CTCC, counts me and Amanda as members.  The Zac Efron Crush Club, ZECC, includes me, Amanda and Nina officially.  And the Robert Pattinson Crush Club, RPCC, is mainly me and Cindy.  Necessary criteria is pretty simple, they’re cute and talented enough to tolerate watching most films they make.

I know what you’re thinking, where is Shia LaBeouf??  Well he’s actually an AA – Artist Appreciation. This is a one member club, just me, how sad.  What designates an AA?  It’s kind of a mix of I think they are talented, spunky, I wish them lots of success, and let’s be friends.  It’s more of a nurturing pride for than a crush on.  Joseph Gordon Levitt just earned himself an AA after I finally caught his monologue from SNL.  He’s cute enough for a CC, but far too petite for me.

Next up, a ‘Lust Club‘.  I came up with this because basically Chris Pine needed stronger wording.  He’s got the skillz, the cocky attitude and he looks like this in a beanie:

Can’t even handle it.  CPLC, who’s in?

Here’s where I need your help.  I don’t know if I should throw ladies under the Crush Club and Artist Appreciation banners or if they get their own designations…  I could easily give Emily Blunt and Rachel McAdams their own AA‘s…  It just feels like something’s missing, like they’re not being rewarded enough for their hotness.  Any suggestions?  Fellas??

And then finally, and this is the most important to me, what do I do about Daniel Day Lewis?  No one comes close to my totally unhealthy love and admiration for this guy.  What do I even title it?  Platinum Idol??  Diamond League?  Ha, the DDLDL.  His Holiness?

I do think I need something for the kind of the older generation of geniuses… Hugh Laurie, Frances McDormand (Erin’s pick)… Where does Paul Rudd fit in?  I have much to figure out.

I’m also considering an Auteur Idol – the director series.

I wanna know who you’d nominate for what and that’s what the comment box is for!!

MORNING QUICKIES: 5 movies in 5 days

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Thankfully 3 of them were screenings so that equals FREE.

My review for ‘Up in the Air’ is right there below this.  That was Thursday…

Friday was ‘An Education’ and Saturday we saw ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ Proper Morning Afters to come…

Sunday was ‘The Fantastic Mr. Fox’ and let me tell you, what. a. DELIGHT!  Sometimes things and people converge in a way that I think the art god is like ‘here you go, Angela’ like it’s just for me and if someone else likes it well congrats to you but this right here is MINE.  (See: the band Them Crooked Vultures.)  So Wes Anderson doing Roald Dahl is a match made in my own private heaven and it turned out sassier and more fun than I could have even anticipated.  I don’t even understand really… How do you make something that off the cuff, random, silly, amusing, clever, absurd and charming in the most laborious medium possible?  Well, I guess Pixar does it on a regular basis, but still.

And so maybe I am genetically predisposed to love but there’s something in there for you as well, promise.  I took Dan and Andy and they both liked it, sure the beer beforehand and my unceasing giggle probably helped…

I give it 10 ‘Cuss Yeah!’s.

And then Monday was ‘New Moon’.  Before I entered the theater I had my capsule review all ready.  It was gonna be something like, ‘If you went to see this then you liked it.’  But then I went to see this, and I didn’t like it.  I was frankly, bored.  I know I know.  I know it all, I know this book is lame and so they didn’t really have a choice and that Bella is a mopey drip and that Jacob is a totally enticing option except that he’s not cause he has the face of a baby, crazy abs or no.  Spending 3/4ths of the movie in their not-a-love-story was such a yawn.  The Volturi were badass, Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen were having fun, but they were in the movie for like A second.   So I’m sorry that 100% of the guilty pleasure I took in ‘Twilight’ was completely wrapped up in the dirty and intriguing creature that is Robert Pattinson.  There, I admit it.
