"They're saying this is for Adam Driver what Kramer vs Kramer was for Dustin Hoffman.More about him than about her.  Scarlett,to me,is the open question.By now it's Driver vs Phoenix for best actor."- Melchiades -Andrew

Thoughts I had while staring at the first official photo from "Before Midnight"


I realize now that that was more singular."ThoughtI had"...whilst drooling.(An exclamation pointis soa thought.At least the way I do it.)

In all seriousness,my only wish is that that wondrous trio of soulful romantillectual conversation (Ethan Hawke,Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater) do not drop this ball.Please do not drop this fragile perfect ball.

(As to the sordid topic of Oscar,will the third time be the charm?They did give the last one a Screenplay nomination.)

Thoughts I had while staring at Nicole Kidman in "V" Magazine

Nicole Kidman just keeps whipping us into submission.Yes,yes,"Uncle!"You're a great actress and infinitely obsession worthy.But bow down we must,again,asThe Paperboynears movie theaters.Hurry up and get her already,movie!Her latest ploy is dressing up (by which I mostly mean undressing) for V Magazine.

The V doesn't stand for "Voilà"but...Voilà.Here she is boys...

6 Thoughts I Had While Staring at Tom Cruise's W Cover

TheRock of Agespush has begun...

• The model to the left must have heard our theory about Tom Cruise's magic sperm: it unlocks great actressing powers ...time-delayed.The effect is only triggered once you are no longer in contact with the stuff (see Mimi Rogers,Penélope Cruz,and Nicole Kidman who all began to do magical work after dumping him)

• Dragon tails are the new nipple clamps.

• Of all the movie stars who have ever worn guyliner,Ewan McGregor wins.

• Why do they photoshop movie stars -- who,generally speaking,are the best looking people on the planet -- to the point where they're barely recognizable?No matter what you think of Tom Cruise he looks pretty great for someone hitting the half century mark.

• What do you suppose the model to the right is whispering in his ear?I'm guessing "Xenuuuuuuuu"

• If Paul Thomas Anderson's 2012 releaseThe Masteris really a thinly veiled Scientology movie,do you think it was inspired by his time with Cruise on theMagnoliaset.And if so,is Mr.Cruise going to be pissed?

Thoughts I Had...While Watching "Kaboom"

This past week I finally caught up with Gregg Araki'sKaboomwhich is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.I still vividly remember seeingThe Living Endwhen it came out and the memory is vivid because it was so raw,like a gay garage band demo.The latest is a typical Araki as its obsessed with beautiful young men,polysexual love triangles and the apocalypse.

Here are a few thoughts on the movie ...let's sayfiveof them to be precise.

01While Araki has been known to reuse the same actors,his obsession with youth means that he has to keep moving on from muses past.It must suck for 38 year old James Duval,for example,to be demoted to third tier stoner "The Messiah"after headlining in the past.ForKaboomThomas Dekker gets the beloved son position front and center and I do mean front and I do mean center.That seems to be the only compositional choice Araki makes in the movie.Nearly every scene ignores the sides of frames entirely -- the art direction often consists of a black screen - and places one actor cropped close up dead center,usually Dekker with his blue peepers and vaguely frosted lips.Dekker is nice to look at,and I'll admit straightaway that betwen this andCinema Verite,he's a more interesting and game actor than I initially thought when he whined throughThe Sarah Connor Chronicles.But I'm not sure he's ready for his close-up.Or at least not this many of them in one movie.You'd have to be a full fledged movie star to nail that many of them in short succession.

02See what I mean about the composition...

Do you wanna f*** me?"

...asks Juno Temple's "London"while Smith begins to hallucinate from the party drugs in an early scene.This is about as forward as the movie gets about sexdespite a narrative which includes the following [NSFW]:
