Elektragheorgheni -Please read 'The Post'

So I gather you are not the president of Mr. Anderson's fanclub. I do hope that you do not live anywhere near him in RL or on the web.smiley - biggrin

Dmitri Gheorgheni - Not Banned in China

What Elektra is not telling you is that I read this review aloud to her.

She laughed for at least ten minutes after I'd stopped. I almost needed medical help, I was laughing so hard while reading. smiley - rofl

I will never look at a dirigible the same way again.


Wow ,that was a funny review.

Gerroffit - Milla Yovowich can be quite good. If and when she sneaks out and works with a real director while her hubby is in hoppital for another hemorrhoid transplant.


Wow ,that was a funny review.

I'm not sure I could sleep at night if I thought I'd encouraged anybody to actually spend their money on this film...

Anyway, re: Milla Jovovich - she may be capable of giving a brilliant performance. She's just never managed it in anything I've ever seen her in. I see she and her old man are already hard at work on (joy, rapture) Resident Evil 5.

Awix - beautiful eyes and pretty smiley - titsmiley - tit means you never get a decent job. Look at Norma Jean Baker.

I dunno, Gwyneth Paltrow, for one? Kate Winslet? Maggie Gyllenhaal. Carey Mulligan, certainly.

(I can't claim to have laid my eyes on all of their bustular substances, but even so...)

It is possible to be an attractive woman and not spend your entire career marooned in mindless schlock.

Sigourney Weaver. Dana Delaney. Hilary Swank...

I'm afraid I had to look up who Dana Delaney was. On the bright side, this did lead me to the following gem of Wikipediaese (text appears exactly as in the original):

'She played Lois Lane in the DC Animated Universe as well as the television series The Batman. In an interview, she said she loves to play "complicated characters".'

Hmmm.

smiley - rofl Now, I didn't know that about Dana Delaney. She's done a lot of television, and you probably don't remember the film 'Exit to Eden'...smiley - whistle

She played a complicated character in Desperate Housewives. And Dmitri is right, she's very beautiful.

I'm not knocking her, it just seemed to me that that wasn't a very felicitous juxtaposition...

It lost all credibility for me when I quite unexpectedly found myself being quoted as an authority, based on a non-EG Hootoo article... Useful for research purposes, though.

Oh dear, my parents were due to go and see that last night for their wedding anniversary. smiley - laugh They only go to the cinema once in a blue moon as well, so I hope they came away with a better opinion than you!

Oh dear oh dear, certainly one where I expect the review is much better than the film. And not just because the review is pretty good...

smiley - fairy

How the heck did those seventeenth century airships work??? How did they even make them? Canvas sheets dipped in tar? Did they fill them with goat flatulence? Were they propelled by peasants waving huge fans?


Wow ,that was a funny review.

Funnily enough, the film does not address the issue of how a multi-decked galleon weighed down by dozens of cannon is persuaded to stay aloft (beyond one shout of 'Quick! The burners!'), let alone propelled. Then again, are we surprised?
