10 Sucky Movies That I Still Love

We all have favorite movies that we have no shame in telling people about. Blah blah, Citizen Kane, you say, blah blah The Godfather. And other people will hopefully be impressed by how good your taste is. But there’s that other list, too–the list of movies that you love even though you know, down in your heart, that they truly suck. The list of movies you don’t mention when people ask you what your favorite movies are, because it would take far too long to justify them and explain yourself. This, my friends, is my list of sucky movies that I love even though (or possibly because) they are horrible.

The Greatest Casting New EVER

A window into the lives of YoSaffBridge and myself.

The following exchange occurred around 9:50 PST over text messages, concerning this news which, I will say again, is the greatest casting news of all time.  Don’t argue with me.

Carmhelga: nph going to gueststar on glee!!!111!1!!

YoSaffBridge: ON JOSS’ EPISODE. do we read ontd at the same time?

Carmhelga: no, you read it when my sister does.  She just posted the ontd link on my facebook and I like, stroked out from the excitement. this was right after i finished the house episode where house & wilson pretend to be a gay couple. television is good to me sometimes.

The Jennifer Lopez guest spot I can do without, but NPH guesting on Glee is like adding awesome berries into an already awesome pie. And Joss Whedon is the awesome ice cream that goes with it.  You think maybe the awesome is going to be overpowering, but then you realize it’s juuust right.

No, that made perfect sense.

Shady Ladies

I love fictional villains and morally ambiguous characters. What makes me sad, though, is how few of these characters tend to be female.

How could I ever have doubted you, Joss?

I was planning to write up my response to Dumbo, but I was suddenly filled with the need to talk about Dollhouse. I have become so deeply, pathetically invested in this show, that I can’t give up hope for a renewal (unlike SOME people). I’m not willing to let go just yet. I wasn’t as completely in love with tonight’s episode, “Haunted,” as I have been with the last few, but the promo for the next week had me literally making high-pitched squealing noises. Let’s take a look at why this show has become so damn good. (SPOILERS FOR LIKE EVERYTHING.)
