See, I was going to see it while I was America, but I just didn't get around to it and literally have not heard one word about that movie ever since! I forgot that movie existed. Sorry, Eric Bana, I'm truly sorry. Forgive me for my crimes, Judge Dredd.

Eric Bana was in Dredd? Who did he play?

God, I hate Eric Bana so much. So much.

I like Eric Bana. I mean, he's not on my top 10. Or my top 20. But he's good enough.

I do hate Edward Norton though. That voice. Ugh.

....My mistake. I got confused between Eric Bana and Karl Urban :(

I like Eric too, but to me he's a B-grade actor, he hasn't really done anything significant in my eyes.

His voice and his overly Australian accent make my skin crawl. His being in general makes my skin crawl.

I've been seeing ads for this new movie about Lincoln called... Lincoln. (Good job on that title, guys.) It's directed by Spielberg so I knew immediately it was going to have music by John Williams and I know it's going to be a good movie, but a paint-by-numbers movie that knows all the standard ways to tug at your heartstrings and manipulates you into all these feelings. But that's not the point I'm trying to get at. The point is that the previews have Tommy Lee Jones in them. He's clearly supposed to be some historical figure, but when you look at him, and more importantly hear him speak, you know it's Tommy Lee Jones (or as I like to say, That Guy from Men In Black) because he's one of those actors who can't seem be anyone other than who he is and that makes my skin crawl. In frustration. But it's still crawly feeling.

I've never liked Tommy Lee Jones. I saw Hope Springs a few months back simply because it contained Meryl Streep and she is in my core nine, but I can't shake the feeling that it would have been a much better movie with somebody else playing opposite her. He did the role well enough... he was everything he was supposed to be, but regardless it was Tommy Lee Jones. I guess it didn't help that the character he played is pretty much exactly as I imagine Tommy Lee to be in real life.

I have trouble watching some shows/movies when I get this vibe from actors. That's why I used to try to stay ignorant of who they were and just focus on the characters and story.

Yeah, I have a issue with a actor playing someone with a personality which is the exact same as the actor irl. It comes off as lazy writing.

As a side note, IT'S THANKSGIVING!!! even though the UK doesn't celebrate it

Sakurasou is probably my absolute favourite this season. And Kaibutsu is funny as hell.
I made the right choice watching those too :D

Another romance series I'm watching is Sukitte ii na Yo, I think it's based of a really popular manga.
While not as interesting as some other stuff, I like it a lot too.

I really want to find something positive to say about this and not be like everyone else making fun of these kids, but I really can't think of anything.

Youtube is the modern Colosseum.

Oh God, Jon, her again. I thought we had left Jenna Rose and her Grammy award-winning single My Jeans back in February, but no, Jon, no, you had to bring her back. Now Jenna and her jeans will return to haunt the airwaves once again.

Since we are linking, uh, magnificent songs from equally magnificent artists, I'd like to bring back my personal favorite: Hot Problems.


Hot girls, we have problems too
We're just like you, except we're hot

They really are fantastic aren't they Pokestick! I do have a question though, why is Sakurasou so good? I love it but I can't really workout why haha. Everything about it just seems incredible to me.

Oh god. Not THEM. Especially Jenna.

Although I guess she'd just say that I'm so mad cuz she looks fab. Haha, jack her swag.

And hot problems. I actually find this song really entertaining to listen to. And some of the parodies are really funny. Like the one about Romney? Priceless! :D

Aside from JC Staff actually doing a really good job this time, I'd say for me it's the actually quite unusual relations between the characters; that while being unorthodox for anime standards (I mean, the guy is basically taking care of an autistic girl), it still presents itself in a very attractive, and sort of erotic but not over the top way. It leaves you wanting more again and again.

My favourite part of Hot Problems is that they didn't even bother to go to the trouble of auto-tune. They really thought they could sing and they thought "Autotune? We don't need that! We'll let our natural voices shine!"

That took balls.

Another gem from Pato, Perfect You is just a failure. Not only does it cover a painfully generic and cheesy Aesop, it also has creaky autotune and a beat which fits more in with a Halloween song.

*****es please. Hot Problems is old. It's all about Thanksgiving now!



Yeah, that just happened. I don't like how much she's getting into crossing the days off of her calendar at the start...

I've got a turkey beef with this song. It stole like fifty thousand things from the best song ever, Friday!

It took the "we, we, we," the bad quality, and even the rapper (who now sings?)

Also, he's such a pedo! What creepy man has a legitimate reason for dressing up in a turkey costume and hanging out with a bunch of children in a home with no other adults. And this is at least the second time he's struck as we've seen him in Friday.

And why does he hang out with this child? (who obviously doesn't understand thanksgiving as she's thanking the lord for letting her get out of having to educate herself) I hope he's her father, as he has been at every holiday party this girl has thrown throughout the year. And if he was her father then these parties she's throwing wouldn't be unsupervised like they appear.

lol

He is the 'founder' of the 'record label' that 'released' Friday and Thanksgiving (the songs, not the actual days) on the world. It makes sense that he likes to insert himself into all of his products...

It's also got a pretty good balance of comedy, drama, and service, plus it's pretty lighthearted on top of that, so it has a nice feel good mood to it, and the service isn't completely forced and kicked to exhaustion. The ratio of females to males is pretty good, and the two supporting males are actually pretty active for their roles. Overall, it makes the show really enjoyable. Oh, and the art looks like kantoku even if it isn't, so that's always a plus on my side XD
