As someone who considers herself stuck in the first half of a rom-com — as though my life is a DVD that refuses to skip over the damaged area so I never reach the montage where the positive changes happen that leads me to the happy ending — I am pretty much the target audience for Mindy Kaling’s new Fox comedy, The Mindy Project. You can watch the full Sept. 25 premiere below now, courtesy of Hulu. Kaling stars as Mindy, a single 31-year-old OB/GYN who’s always been obsessed with romantic comedies and has reached her own self-improvement montage — which, if all goes well, will obviously last for seasons. Here are five reasons I’m already a fan: READ FULL STORY »
Tag: Fassbender Package Punchline Watch (1-8 of 8)
Did you think the end of awards season meant no more inappropriate jokes about Michael Fassbender’s Little Mickey? If so, you were wrong. Leave it to fellow 2012 Oscar snubee (and new mom) Charlize Theron to revive that most illustrious institution: The Michael Fassbender Package Punchline Watch.
At this weekend’s Human Rights Campaign gala, both Prometheus costars were in attendance. During her acceptance speech for the Ally for Equality Award, Theron told Fassbender (who presented the award to her), “Your penis was a revelation. I’m available to work with it any time.” We can only assume she was talking about his work in Shame and not just making a general statement. READ FULL STORY »
A few photos from the London after-party for the premiere of A Dangerous Method have been making the rounds on the Internet. And, based on the images, it appears Michael Fassbender very much enjoyed himself at the event. (I’m particularly fond of the one in which he’s tinkering around on a piano, but the waltz with co-star Viggo Mortensen is pretty amazing in its own right.) UK tabloid The Sun initially reported that the actor “was politely asked to leave ” and “was becoming a bit of a handful for the other guests.” (Insert “handful” joke here.) But according to GQ‘s Olivia Cole (GQ hosted the bash) via her Twitter, the drunk Fassbender tale (which claimed he ” lit a cigarette indoors and that was the point it had gone too far”) was “complete fiction” and that ” no one was asked to leave early.” Despite these photos, I tend to believe Cole here, as no one in their right mind would ask Michael Fassbender to leave early.

First of all, I would just like to say that I am totally thrilled to be answering questions from my devoted readers, who are simply the most culturally aware, emotionally available, and physically attractive people on earth. I’m not claiming that people who read other critics are small, misshapen creatures with wasted lives, but only because, like my readers, I have perfect manners.
Hello Libby — I see every new release that comes into theaters, I love cinema, but for the life of me, I cannot understand the love of Hugo. Sure, it was shot beautifully, but I felt it was choppy, as if a multitude of stories were being told at once, with no single thread coming to an acceptable conclusion. Am I crazy?
I enjoyed Hugo, especially because it was set in the most gorgeously art-directed, turn-of-the-century Parisian railroad station; it was like an enchanted French food court, from a time before Pinkberry. Hugo himself was such an adorably tousled waif that for a second I thought he was Amelie’s kid sister, but he got to live in the train station and keep all of the station’s clocks running on time, which is a perfect form of child labor for a cinematic fairy tale. Was the movie choppy? I would say the film was a touch leisurely, but even when the plot took a hairpin turn and began depicting the birth of cinema, I was happy, because I knew that the director, Martin Scorsese, was blissing out.

As award season continues, hopefully with an Oscar nomination on Tuesday for Shame‘s Michael Fassbender, we expect George Clooney’s Golden Globes joke about the actor’s private parts won’t be the last we hear. So we’re creating the Fassbender Package Punchline Watch. We begin with last night’s Late Show With David Letterman appearance. It was Fassbender himself who cracked a penis joke when asked how difficult it must be to play a role as dark as a sex addict: READ FULL STORY »
