Poor Winona, she used to make great films. I really hope she gets her life in order.

Fox said...

Wow. I had forgotten that Janeane used to be pretty.

Cristhian said...

I met Winona two weeks ago, she has not aged, not one minute! I was shaking after i touched her impossibly frail hand. Then she brushed me off and walked the other way. It was beautiful.

NATHANIEL R said...

I love this movie so much. That is all.

FranklinBluth said...

I only just found out that Ben Stiller directed this movie. I was (and possibly still am) shocked.

Dr. S said...

In my class the other day, I showed the clip from Dracula where she's all bloody-faced, and I couldn't help but think that in my students' young adulthood, she's always already been in the background--certainly compared to when we were younger.

Did you know that Reality Bites is one of the films you can stream through Netflix? Huzzah!

I really wish Netflix had the streaming video option for Macs. They need to get with the program already... Netflix, not Apple ; )

And I'm starting to get curious who the Film Bitch best actress nominees will be. My guesses are

Kate Winslet (The Reader)
Melissa Leo
Anne Hathaway
Sally Hawkins

...with the 5th spot still up in the air. I think Streep will be relegated to honorable mention status, what with Nat calling the performance "inconsistent" and "good, but not her best." I wonder what he thought of KST? Probably not much, considering that grade. Blanchett I don't think will make it. Jolie definitely won't.

Maybe someone slightly out of left field, like Michelle Williams? Or Cruz in Elegy? Hmmm...

Slayton said...

Could it be... Kenley?!

Oh, wait... it's Janeane.

Dr. S said...

Netflix *does* have streaming video for Mac -- as of about 10 days ago! They sent an e-mail. It's awesome, and awful (because...what a time suck!) all at once.

adam k. said...

WTF!? Really??? I just canceled my subscription last month because I never use it!

Do they have all the same movie options as PCs? Looks like I'll have to get back on Netflix as soon as my finals are done...

Edd Vedder said...

M,m,m,... my Sharona!

Ariella said...

Just a picture is enough to brighten my day!

Douglas Racso said...

love this film! i think this is the evian-naive part? eheheh

Glenn said...

I was just thinking of this movie today, by association of it's soundtrack. Freaky.

kel said...

I love this film! As much as i love Winona and Hawke in this, my favorite scenes are between Garafalo and Zahn:

Steva Zhan- Ma, I have to tell you something. I am a homo... sexual

Janeane Garafalo: Oh... Christ... Is there a support group that I can join to help me come to terms with my own homophobia?

Chris Na Taraja said...

I used to love this movie...I wonder if I still would today.

Brian said...

Only cob nobblers liked this movie. Winona's score, but swingin' on the flippity-flop with a bunch of lamestains for 99 minutes? What a harsh realm. Lock, anyone?

Lara said...

Pff, cob nobbler, so what ;-). LOVE this movie.
Oh, Winona, what happened to you?

NATHANIEL R said...

I saw this movie 4 or 5 times in the theater and I haven't done that since (until Moulin Rouge!) That is all.

Chris Na Taraja said...

What the hell is a Cobb Nobbler?!

I do remember thinking the toughness was contrived in this flick, and the story predictable, but I still liked it....guess I'm a Cobb Nobbler. : P

Derek said...

God, I love this movie and in particular, this scene.

Janeane's "You won't regret it" to the gas station attendant is hilarious.

Lara said...

Chris, here' a definition:

Brian said...

I wasn't aware of that definition. I guess if I'd have thought about it for two seconds I could have figured out the homophobic underpinnings. I got the term from here.

I apologize, I was just trying to be silly and it turned out I was being thoughtless.

NATHANIEL R said...

no harm no foul. i didn't even know what it meant till now

Cluster Funk said...

"Nobody gives a shit. We're starving." Love me some Vicki!

Dr. S said...

@Adam K. -- yep, for real! As far as I know, it's the same set of movies as on PC. And I'm on the 2-movies-a-month plan but still get unlimited streaming movies. The viewer's even pretty good--easy to move around within the film.
