Watched Juno again this afternoon for, what, the seventh time?
That's one doodle that can be undone, home skillet.
Dialogue so inventive and crisp I eat it up like popcorn. Yes, once the movie made the leap from indy to darling the backlash began and it was mislabeled by some a snarky teen comedy. Too quippy language, too much pop culture, a hamburger phone for fucks sake. The phrasing is fast and unexpected machine gun fire, lightning quick banter much like Amy Sherman-Palladino's fabulous Gilmore girls series.
It's also how I talk. I like to think it's how I write.
Of course I saw it coming that Jen Garner would get the little bean but didn't feel doing so tried to pull some weepy emotion out of me – see any chick-with-a-cough flick for any tired example. Allison Janney is an amazing comedienne, you must watch her in Drop Dead Gorgeous over and over and over. Still have a crush on Jason Bateman, the grown up version even more so.
Next up another watch of Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains. Diane Lane as Corrine Burns shaped who I wanted to be at fifteen, all punk rock attitude, panties over fishnet hose and two-tone-hair. I was simply a chunky, mostly lonely girl living in the Midwest. Grown up me still chews on the tasty leftovers.
"You are so jealous of me. I'm everything you ever wanted to be."
