Re: “The Average American Sees Five Thousand Movies in a Lifetime. Half of Them Come Out This Week.

I'm genuinely curious: What did you find racist about the Hong Chau character and/or performance? And what was sexist about literally all the female characters?

Re: “A Forgotten The Handmaid’s Tale Movie Filmed in Durham Is the Missing Link Between Classic Novel and Hulu Hit

What a great story, thanks Allison! I remember seeing this movie in high school and loving it. I never made the connection with Durham in all these years. Severely underrated movie, I think.

Re: “Walter Mosley on the return of his most famous character in Little Green

Great to have Easy Rawlins back, and "Devil in a Blue Dress" is one of the best movies that hardly anyone has seen.

Re: “DVD+Digital: Cold feet, Lizzy Caplan and Save the Date

Yes, I think she's the real deal. She has those big expressive eyes that seem to be critical for film actors and movie stardom. I wonder if you could map the DNA for big movie star eyes.

Re: “Following a group of Brits through their lives in 56 Up

Thanks, you're right. I kept notes watching this but it's hard to keep track, especially when I occasionally can't read my own hand writing. I wish I were kidding.

Re: “DVD+Digital: Satanic cults, Halloween videos and Rosemary's Baby

It's these kids today. What can you do? It's hard to find horror anymore that works like this. Blair Witch did a similar thing, I think, with the found-footage approach, before that was done to death.
