Thanks to Doctor Who and Harry Potter I have a mental catalog of countless minor UK actors.
real friendship is sending them a link to something terrible so you can both be traumatized at the same time
I interviewed for this summer job and I was really excited about cause I was finallly going to get a job and have something to do every day and it was in a swanky office and it was really near where my girlfriend works and it was going to be fantastic. But they hired someone else because they could work through September instead of through August and now all my hopes and dreams are crushed and I’m still stuck at home with no money.
The trick is to not let people know how really weird you are until it’s too late for them to back out.
Works every time.
There are not any.
By far your best shot, numbers-wise, at finding one that’s at least even-handedly featuring a man and a woman is Before Midnight (on 891 screens) so I hope you like it. Because it’s pretty much that or a solid, impenetrable wall of movies about dudes.
Dudes in capes, dudes in cars, dudes in space, dudes drinking, dudes smoking, dudes doing magic tricks, dudes being funny, dudes being dramatic, dudes flying through the air, dudes blowing up, dudes getting killed, dudes saving and kissing women and children, and dudes glowering at each other.
Somebody asked me this morning what “the women” are going to do about this. I don’t know. I honestly am at the point where I have no idea what to do about it. Stop going to the movies? Boycott everything?
They put up Bridesmaids, we went. They put up Pitch Perfect, we went. They put up The Devil Wears Prada, which was in two-thousand-meryl-streeping-oh-six, and we went (and by “we,” I do not just mean women; I mean we, the humans), and all of it has led right here, right to this place. Right to the land of zippedy-doo-dah. You can apparently make an endless collection of high-priced action flops and everybody says “win some, lose some” and nobody decides that They Are Poison, but it feels like every “surprise success” about women is an anomaly and every failure is an abject lesson about how we really ought to just leave it all to The Rock.” —At The Movies, The Women Are Gone : Monkey See : NPR (via kdhart)
