Talkin' 'bout the New Q: Or, People Who Won't Post, Preferring the Email

Darkling Plain Writes:


Robertson what have you been smoking? That film so sucks. It's a 2 hour trailer! Clive Owen? With that moustache. You. Have. Got.

To Be. Kidding. Me. Awful! What was the point of that film? I could've Wiki-ed a history lesson & had time & $$ to spare for a couple of scotches in the Lucky Lounge. And btw, I have seen Cate B and let me tell you senator, she is no Helen Mirren.


Indigo replies:

Well, it's 3 against 1 on Clive. He was fabulous. The movie was visually gorgeous, and may lure some of the ignorant to find out more. Helen Mirren was a fascinating Elizabeth, but so was Cate. I think Cate might even be closer in feel, but I'll have to see the Helen one again - the history was certainly much better. No argument there. I was just happy that this one didn't screw up the history as much as the first one did.

Glenda is still the Queen.

Is this the fellow who only likes old noir movies?

But... but, I was *answering* an email! Surely we are not now to post every laundry list and post-it note to Comments? Every phone number scratched onto the back of a napkin. Hmm. Every thought, every whim, every passing mental state however breezy. Well it has been tried. And btw, Borat sucked even more than Elizabeth, which was only poorly realized, as opposed to wicked & evil in intent.

Now everyone knows your name -- or at least your nom. I don't put name on every set of bones I pick!! I'm a nice vulture.

Robertson don't pick on the 'professor of pop' (i suppose we shall leave him nameless...for now) he is a nubie at this whole blogging b.s. plus i agree...Elizabeth wasn't that great, I have to admit i've never seen the old one, but Cate Blanchett is blah. And by the way, I Strongly agree that Borat was horrific and just plain mean. It made me uncomfortable and I literally walked out of the room...just unnecessary if you ask me! Unethical if you will...points for ethics class *score.*
