We sure are cute for two ugly people.
: So they're slightly disfigured and connected at the head
. But combined, those two make up one pretty decent chick. Reggie Ray
: Yeah, I'd do 'em. Austin
: I know you would, Reggie Ray. But no, I'm looking for somebody who's really messed up. I'm talking about a real shitbomb. [Chyler Leigh walks by] Austin
: Well, bombs away! Jake
: No, no, no, no
, anyone but her
! Not... Janie Briggs
! Guys, she's got glasses
and a ponytail
! Aw, look at that, she's got paint on her overalls, what is that
Take the ugly one! Raphael: You
take the ugly one!
I'll'' take the ugly one! Michaelangelo:
WHICH ONE'S THE UGLY ONE??!!
Even the compulsory ugly one is, should you ever meet him in the flesh, actually the handsomest person you would ever see in your life. The same way American movies always cast a stunningly beautiful girl to play an ugly girl, and then give her one eyebrow, fluffy hair and glasses.
If [the main character] was ugly, it would have ended after 5 minutes of being aired. Heejung: ...true. Usually the main female character isn't ugly. The film might describe the woman as being plain-looking, but they actually use a really pretty actress.
: Oh, um, Cameron Diaz
in Being John Malkovich
, they didn't make her look hot in there. Rebecca
: Oh yeah! Let's take the hot chick and make her look frumpy. Brilliant! She can get any role she wants, do you know how many normal, ugly people would kill for that role? But no, let's hand it to the cute one and praise her for being edgy.
Five minutes into the film, I relaxed, knowing it was set in the real world, and not in the Hollywood alternative universe where Julia Roberts can't get a date
says she has an 'okay' body. I see what you’re doing, ScarJo! She probably said that, because if she would’ve said, 'My body is spectacular and my magnificent chichis can cure impotence
,' everyone would’ve called her a conceited bitch.
We move instead to the hangar to meet Jet Girl, played by Naomi Watts
, who we know is not sexy because she’s wearing glasses and has brown hair.
wasn’t considered sexy enough by the studio. Before you snicker, bear in mind this is the same studio that at the time was planning a Superman
movie with Nicolas Cage
in the lead.
It's been pointed out before that the Daily Mail
's repeated leching over teenage girls can be handily collated by popping the phrase 'all grown up
' into their search bar, but scientists had yet to crack the code that simultaneously latches on to the two main agendas they push with their stories about females, namely –
#1: The sexualising of underage girls.
#2: Helpfully exposing all women over 25
as the disgusting, ashen hags they are.
In 2004, Keira Knightley
became the anti-Mimi
when she publicly spit on the flat chest haters who made the decision to use the silicone Photoshop tool to plump up her small titty situation
on the poster for King Arthur
. KK complained that if they insisted on inflating her chichis, they could’ve at least made them perky and not droopy. Well, ten years later and KK is still protesting...That’s your cue to put in your earplugs unless you really want to hear Mimi, the Kartrashians
and the other disciples of the Adobe philosophy scream, 'SPEAK FOR YOURSELF, BITCH,' at once.
You know, I saw this Chloe scene, and I was thinking about that big old string of shower scenes we had last season. You remember them? The most blatant was the one where Lana, in a pink/red backdrop, lather's up, luxuriates, reveals just enough body not to get one of those parental discretion warnings... Now compare that to how Chloe's bath is treated. Even though she's lighting candles and trying to relax, the lighting is dull, flat, and very little of Chloe showering is actually shown. It takes place in the dark. Any of you shower in the dark?
This has to be purposeful...which leads me to wonder, why isn't Chloe treated like as much of a hot chick as Lana?
Insert commentary that I don't want to get into about the smart chick over the pink froofy beautiful chick. Just of note.
One could argue that they learned their lesson about how rampant and arbitrary titillation doesn't serve any real story purpose. Uh, yeah. That's it. Tell it to Ms Leather pants of Vengeance
last week, and ring up the return, 'cause I ain't buying it.
is shrill, supercilious and vain... Even her henchmen have a hard time tolerating her, and can be heard making cracks about her age behind her back. Judging by the look of things, the old hag might even be a hoary twenty-five
years old. (As you know, the twilight of a woman's prime is somewhere between the ages of seventeen and twenty-two.)
Look, I get it — in the world of TV and movies, everything is cooler, prettier, and sexier than real life. The nerds are hotter than your high school's prom king, the "plain" girls are played by models, and the "fat" guys are thinner than most people in line at a Walmart.
