On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Rita Hayworth, Tragic Princess

@TooCool4School Thank you! I love these posts, but it suddenly actually made me ANGRYANGRYANGRY to see it referred to as a "stinkbomb." Also, GILDA is all kinds of great and is decidedly not just about hair-flipping and "Put the Blame on Mame".

On Beyond Clarice: Underrated Horror Heroines

@laserbeams With a tiny budget and Elijah Wood starring! Ok, that is weird enough for me to have to see it.

On Beyond Clarice: Underrated Horror Heroines

@Kakapo I haven't heard anything about it, but I would be surprised if someone wasn't planning a remake of MANIAC. The remake of ISOYG was fine but kind of pointless. Probably extra pointless to me because I watched it right after watching the original. And also because it doesn't star Buster Keaton's granddaughter.

On Beyond Clarice: Underrated Horror Heroines

Ooh! I need to read whatever you write about the insanity that is I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. And maybe the... errr... effective but extremely distressing MANIAC.

On Adele, "Skyfall"

@Brittabot GOLDFINGER number 3? No no no! It is number ONE! In fact, it may be the only Bond theme that actually exists.

On What Is a Jukebox?

@Kakapo Ok. The rest was just confusing. If I had read any of her points before she made completely obscured them via the heavy-duty ironizing machine, I would probably be more annoyed.

On What Is a Jukebox?

I'm only a handful of songs into the article and am already mystified/irritated. Answering machines were not bewildering brand new technology when that Replacements song came out and lordy "World War II vets and auto mechanics" were hardly the only people with tattoos in the 80's. Now to read on and grumble some more....
