let's talk about clea duvall (x-posted) [29 Mar 2005|04:25pm]

starsandwind
great actress, and i'm sure you have probably seen her at some point whether it be "21 grams", "identity", or "girl, interrupted". i recently saw her in "but i'm a cheerleader"- really funny satire about homosexuality and very lovable characters. i have seen movies of hers that aren't as good, but she is consistently strong as an actress and always chooses complex roles. i was just looking to find out more about her in terms of who she dates (specifically sexual orientation), upcoming projects (in addition to the HBO show carnivale, and really anything you may know about her. i looked her up on the IMDB and they just didn't have that much information on her. thanks for sharing!

question [16 Jan 2005|10:24am]

is_this_reality
I have a question for you all. What do you think of Sideways and everyone saying it's the best movie of the year? I thought it was decent, but that there were a few movies better this tear. For example, Million Dollar Baby was fantastic and I also liked Closer and Aviator. I haven't seen Hotel Rwanda yet but it also looks like a great film. What does everyone think about this? And while we're talking about it, who's your pick for best Actor and Actress?

Pre-Spider Man Tobey [30 Nov 2004|09:56pm]

I just finished watching Joyride with Tobey Maguire. It's this totally independent movie made circa 1998, and even though it has it's cheesy moments, Tobey is so great in it. I recommend checking it out, but be careful not to confuse it with the horror movie starring Paul Walker....
