Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.
—Henry Kissinger, 56th United States Secretary of State.
The audience was mesmerized by Brando
and so found Blanche—his foil
—somewhat ridiculous. At the time even Tennessee
agreed that Brando's appearance in the theater was unique and there was no way that Jessica Tandy could compete with him. She seemed all tics and mannerisms
while he was the male principle writ large
. Tennessee, who loved glory almost as much as his inventions, made no fuss then or later.
I'm trying to clearly distinguish between Tom Felton
, who is a good looking young boy, and Draco, who, whatever he looks like, is not a nice man. It’s a romantic, but unhealthy, and unfortunately all too common delusion of girls...it actually worried me a little bit
, to see young girls swearing undying devotion to this really imperfect character...I mean, I understand the psychology of it, but it is pretty unhealthy.
Of course I like Jane. I like Tony Soprano
and Hannibal Lecter
, too. But liking someone doesn't change what they are. The key to dispelling the glamor of evil is to not confuse charisma with virtue.
Almost any Bill Murray
role fits on this list, but Ghostbusters
is one of the most lovable movies ever made, and 90 percent of that is Bill Murray's fault. If you actually look at the character of Pete Venkman, he's a borderline sex offender who uses electrical torture as a punchline. He tells presumably-dicked representatives of the Environmental Protection Agency that they have no dicks. He mocks the spirits of the dead in a world where he knows they can hear him. If Bill Murray wasn't a comic genius we'd probably be asking why someone made a movie out of some script they found on death row.
The guy at #10 was considered hotter than all
of these — with no leading from me.
The viewer. I'm a little worried about you guys.
10 years of police and undercover work, millions of dollars spent, 2 years in trial, and we are left with the biggest debacle of the court since the OJ Simpson trial. Another flaw I would say is present in the movie is (Sidney) Lumet has obviously fallen for the charm of the Luchese crime family
much like the jury of the trial has. Lumet films them as the good guys fighting against a corrupt and EEEEEEEVVVVVIIIIILLLL
District Attorney and shows their fight as something triumphant. Even he seems to forget the fact that these guys are murderers, drug dealers, rapists, thieves, and just about every other vile crime in the books. No matter how much Lumet wanted to present these guys as charming and lovable, I felt sick to my stomach that these guys fooled so many people and that none of them were really punished.
Speaking from someone who grew up loving the law and fascinated by the law, this was a despicable display in the courtroom.
Wolverine comes across the scar from where he stabbed her in the previous movie, and she point-blank tells him she’s into guys who hurt her
: And yet, the Harley Quinn
fan community didn’t immediately jump on making Steampunk Mystique costumes for Comic-Con ’04.
Pretty decent guy if you got to know him, dude would give you the shirt off his back (well as long as you weren't Jewish). Adolf loved his dogs and wife
, often times he around the holidays the family could be seen caroling and preforming other festive activities around Auschwitz day camp
for the Jewish, unfortunately his plans for renovations to turn the camp to a water park were canceled due to his death too bad there would have been some sweet rides there
The guy who hates me for lulz. Guy who nearly ruined my life. But somehow, even I had started to buy into his PR. That’s just how good the spin was. Even I mistook the sociopath for a misunderstood outcast...the side-effect of so many good people supporting his case was that more and more people in tech came to also like him. And they all seemed to think that it was All Good as long as they punctuated each article with the obligatory 'sure, he’s an ass
' or 'and yes, he’s a troll
' or 'he’s known for offending people' (which are, for most men, compliments
). In other words, they took the Worst Possible Person, as one headline read, and still managed to reposition him as merely a prankster, a trickster, a rascal. And who doesn’t like a 'lovable scoundrel
on hacktivist/neo-Nazi Andrew "weev" Auernheimer
Those people knew about the allegations and they still went, so the fact that I ate oatmeal with blueberries instead of a buttery PopTart for breakfast is a more shocking development than those people clapping at Bill Cosby
’s rape joke. Bill Cosby thinks he lives on a 50,000 foot high mountain of Pudding Pops and is untouchable, so of course he’d to this...A heckler was kicked out for screaming, “You’re a rapist,” at him.

At the same time, she needs to be kept in line with her canon appearance. That means no sob stories about her abusive parents, dead parents, evil step moms, or sudden changes of heart. Lightning Dust is an unapologetic, justifiably arrogant jerk, and that's how you need to write her.
