In a better world, this wouldn’t even cross my mind. But I’m sitting there, watching Nicole Kidman looking slightly weird — pretty, but slightly weird — and I’m thinking I don’t want Jennifer Jason Leigh to become one of Them. To go that unfortunate route. And so I used the review today for two things:
1) To point out the artistic merits of the unaltered face, which I think SHOULD be said in a review. Especially because
2) Actresses are under tremendous pressure, and at ever younger ages. And so any encouragement I can offer actresses, to say, “Hey, actress, leave that face alone,” I want to do it.
Zack Snyder told legion of worried fanboys he’s gonna stick to the comic book and not change anything, but also confirmed the movie will be set in 1985: i’ve got a big problem with that, because now it’s a period piece, an EIGHTIES period piece, and you know what that means, the music, oh god :-)
But seriously, the original comic book wasn’t a period piece, it was present day, it only happened to be written and published in the eighties. And then what’s the point of making it a period piece, an eighties period piece, with all the superheroes flying around and such? It’s not like those things really happened.

“MOSCOW (Reuters) - At least 30 members of a Russian doomsday cult have barricaded themselves in a remote cave to await the end of the world and are threatening to commit suicide if police intervene, officials and media said Thursday.”—Reuters
“Music kind of sucks. Nobody’s into being a musician. Everybody’s getting their mogul on. You’ve been so infiltrated by this corporate mentality that all the time you’d spend getting great songs together, you’re busy doing nine other things that have nothing to do with art. You know how shitty Stevie Wonder’s songs would have been if he had to run a fuckin’ clothing company and a cologne line? … Rap sucks, for the most part. Not all rap, but as an art form it’s just not at its best moment. Sammy the Bull would have made a shitty album. And I don’t really have a desire to hear Warren Buffett’s album - or the new CD by Paul Allen. That’s what everybody’s aspiring to be.”—Chris Rock
