Eh, I seem to remember laughing at parts. Not out loud like I would watching, say, Baseketball (no particular reason I picked that one), but still, filled with amusing moments.

It's all about tone when it comes to genre, IMO. "Crash" for example is a straight drama (though a craptastic one at that). Eternal Sunshine is not a straight drama.

Then I ask the same question, but replace hostile with heated.

If you want to go with "fast-paced", then sure.

Yeah, I get that, and I just disagree. Premise shouldn't have anything to do when discussing a movie's merits. A good movie is all in the execution of its premise, whatever it may be.

Actually, never saw SLB either, but everyone in it can act.

Assuming that Love Happens is bad without seeing it is different than assuming SLP is good without seeing it? And Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston are both good enough actors.


No, that's pretty much the same scenario, you're right. And agreed, especially with the former -- Eckhart is solid.

But assuming SLP is bad because Love Happens is bad is where the issue is, I think.


and the fact that the culmination revolves around a dance contest certainly doesn't help.

I'm surprised this has become a thread about "actress" vs. "movie star" and whether or not Anne Hathaway is good looking, while no one has mentioned that Jack Nicholson is 75 and Jennifer Lawrence is 22. If he weren't famous everyone would be creeped out by his behavior.

it's important that i add, on the record, that i have a bias against movies based on really, really, really good looking people who are struggling with their relationships. that and dance contests.

Or maybe if he weren't just accepted to be crazy, which he is -- you gotta earn that kind of leeway.

Poor good-looking people. They have relationship problems too, you know :( :(

What were those films' budgets again? Point is, once a certain amount of money is put into a film, you'd better believe they're looking for attractive actors/actresses to fill the main roles.

Also, shmenguin, is not the cast of Eternal Sunshine pretty good looking as well?

Apparently there's a lot of people that think Jennifer Lawrence isn't all that great looking, so, you know, maybe give that movie a chance :P

And they hired a good-looking actress in Kate Winslet and made her less attractive looking in Eternal Sunshine. That's even worse man. Just give the part to a more homely looking actress. They could certainly use the work.

I'm obviously being a bit tongue-in-cheek here, but the point still remains.

A Los Angeles Times study found that academy voters are markedly less diverse than the moviegoing public, and even more monolithic than many in the film industry may suspect. Oscar voters are nearly 94% Caucasian and 77% male, The Times found. Blacks are about 2% of the academy, and Latinos are less than 2%.

Oscar voters have a median age of 62, the study showed. People younger than 50 constitute just 14% of the membership.

I have a friend who used to be the Admin Assistant to a VP of Production at MGM. Big time guy, used have a company with Steve McQueen. Anyway, she worked for him for six years, iirc. Every year, he let her cast his Oscar votes. Not fill the ballot out with his picks... he let her vote for her own choices. (She would always ask me about the Best Sound and Best Sound Effects Editing categories)

And I got to cast a Grammy ballot once, because my boss - who was at the time the president of the L.A. NARAS chapter - wasn't going to bother that year. So I asked him if I could vote, and he gave me the ballot. NARAS, btw, is the organization that puts on the Grammys.

Point being: Academy membership and Academy voters can be two quite different things. :wink:
