::tumblin' threads

I'm a little late to the party on Tumblr.
Oh well.
Better late than never, I s'pose.

Recently I watched Young Adult, and was amazed at how Charlize Theron - one of the most physically beautiful women I've ever seen - could portray such a profoundly ugly person.
Also, Patton Oswalt, who I find absolutely hilarious as a comic, has some impressive acting chops.

He holds his own, spars with the masters, and emerges victorious.
He's the most sympathetic character in the whole story.

This film was written by Diablo Cody, whose writing I still thoroughly enjoy every time I watch Juno.
I love to watch great storytellers collaborate to unspool a fascinating tale.

We just watched that this past week as well. How funny! I very much enjoyed it.

Just stumbled across your blog. I also recently watched the movie. I feel like most of the good stuff was shown in the previews because you're right--she was an extremely ugly person. There was nothing to root for and left me wanting more.
