thecpt: Meanwhile, Ellis's next film involves Lindsey Lohan and a porn star... Credibility score is currently at zero.


I'd put it at less than zero.

I thought she got awards because she made pandering movies about loving the military and hollywood needs to seal up those 'real american' votes

Bret Easton Ellis uses his twitter account almost exclusively to troll people. It isn't how I would choose to spend my time, but it seems to keep him amused.

hasty ambush:
given the high level of ignorance (and contempt) Hollywood as displayed in recent years about the military

Stow that shiat, Hudson. It's not any worse than the ignorance Hollywood displays about any specialized profession, virtually none of which are portrayed with any accuracy whatsoever. Painful, yes, but nobody wants to watch "hurry up and wait" and endless polishing of boots any more than they want to watch how I really do molecular biology.

Tried watching Hurt Locker twice and the jerky a$$ camera work made me physically ill.

Tommy Moo: To be fair, I have heard that the Hurt Locker is actually quite horrible.

I haven't seen any of this woman's movies, so I can't say for sure if she's overrated, but let's not pretend that lauding platitudes on attractive women isn't a thing.


From what I gather, if you're a military person you'll feel the same way about The Hurt Locker as I feel whenever someone uses a computer in a movie*. Other than that, it's quite good.

*Which is to say, it's not realistic at all.

Am I the only one who finds American Psycho the movie to be better than the book?

I couldn't get through that book. The endless descriptions of friggin' clothing drove me insane, and I couldn't concentrate on what was happening.

Epicedion: Who the hell is Bret Easton Ellis?


He writes books. I'm guessing your next question is "What the hell are books?"

So he's using twitter like he's used every other medium before?

And if anyone knows about being overrated, it's Bret Easton Ellis.

Seriously, he hasn't put out anything of note in more than 20 years. Why would anyone give a tinker's fark about his opinions on anything?
