I really liked this movie,,,one of the joys is watching the deafening lack of chemistry between Mr Foster and McBongo...it's amazing
I never understood how anyone thought she was even a passable leztress. She has that A to B range of emotions
I like it that Roger on American Dad does a better Jodie Foster than Jodie Foster does.
And aside from Robert DeNiro, the only actor Foster has had chemistry with was Kristen Stewart.
I loved that movie. Jodie looked fabulous, and it was great to see an out-and-proud atheist character onscreen.
The ending and all that was so badly written
I loved the movie. Jodie sold it.
I liked the book better. The theme of science versus faith was sort of lost in the movie. Also, it was kind of silly the way Matthew McConaughey's character kept popping up all over the place like horse shit.
Jodie was awesome in that film. McBongo wasn't needed but he was a composite of two characters from the book.
Jodie can have chemistry with macho male actors. Robert is one, the guy from A Very Long Engagement, Terrance Howard and a few others. McBongo is too much of a pretty boy and not a good actor.
Exactly why was this thread needed Op?
The book is better in some ways (and I could have done without Matthew M), but Jodie made the Ellie Arroway character come to life.
No reason...I was sitting here working at it was on the TV machine....it always seemed like a great opportunity lost..
Then again, that's the Hollywood tragedy
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
