    Superbad is GREAT. Nothing to do with her, really, but it's not as if she hasn't managed to apply her limited talents to quality projects before.

    I didn't literally mean it, just pointing out Gosling and Stone just let me down in that film, I expected more from them, especially Ryan Gosling but oh well, shows you how important directing and dialogue really is. Lol

    I really liked superbad, the help, and Easy A... even though I'm aware the last two are probably not super popular with this crowd.. I liked them a lot.

    A concept which it appears people like Dennis (no offense Denny, you're not Robinson Crusoe there) seemingly buy into too much; Hollywood gets something with any perceived value and strangles the life out of it, squeezing every available drop of worth from it until we, the audience are sick to death of it and sigh in resignation when said thing is cast aside to limp along with their career in any vehicle they can, always hoping for that one big role to put them back in the spotlight and public adoration again. And Dennis (and people like him) are unwitting accomplices to these actions because they repeat by rote and regurgitation the content of reviews and friends opinions because we wouldn't want to be one of unpopular opinion now, would we?

    Right, I should have worded that - name one movie Stone has MADE great. (which is to say Denny, that she brought something else to the role noone else could have)

    I liked Easy A for the story, not Emma Stone...


    And I am perhaps the only person to think Superbad was vastly over rated. The film was a good attempt at the current generation's humor and shenanigans of the "Party Life" but the cursing was to the point that the movie wasn't as funny (which says a LOT coming from me since I worked in the Oil Fields of Texas - Comparable to Sailors vulgarity). There are only so many times you can hear someone say fuck and pussy, expecting a laugh, before it gets annoying. The saving grace for the film (for me anyways) were the cops. Rogan and Hader were excellent in the film.

    Wait, the guy who said that The help is one of his favorite movies is afraid of an unpopular opinion? Even though he's posting that on a wrestling forum lol

    Denny - Don't deflect; take the argument head on. Have Rob and Ape not taught you to stand up for yourself?

    Pretty much.

    I'm fairly convinced that Stone mainly got the job in Gangster Squad because the role caused for her to wear lots of make-up, and she's the spokeswoman for REVLON. Her involvement would theoretically bring the female demos in, and then have them heading to Macy's post-movie. Or some other such marketing nonsense.

    His point wasn't totally off base to me. I just didn't agree with him putting me into that crowd. I don't mind having an unpopular opinion.
