with good reason, as it turns out. by tierrasimbolica (2.00 / 0) #1 Wed Dec 08, 2010 at 10:54:42 AM EST
 

Thank you for that. by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #2 Wed Dec 08, 2010 at 11:16:40 AM EST
Tonight's triple feature will be Requiem, Synecdoche New York and Young Frankenstein. I will, of course, reserve a spot for you in the event you drop in.

thanks but no thanks by tierrasimbolica (4.00 / 1) #3 Wed Dec 08, 2010 at 11:52:43 AM EST
one viewing of requiem is a strong enough dose to last me a good long while.

meanwhile, if you're shooting for a movie mindfvck marathon, might i recommend swapping out young frankenstein from your film cocktail with some tideland perhaps?

But I trust your taste in film explicitly, so I'll check out Tideland too. Thanks.

Some years since I saw it, but it wasn't a bad movie.

i thought it was brilliant.  just emotionally intense, and poignant.  it made me feel sad.   it also made me feel incredibly lucid, which is good.

i think she's so much prettier by tierrasimbolica (2.00 / 0) #9 Wed Dec 08, 2010 at 09:12:20 PM EST
now that she's 40.

she has aged well.

hmmm by tierrasimbolica (2.00 / 0) #10 Wed Dec 08, 2010 at 09:15:38 PM EST
of course, that photo is touched up a bit.  but still, i think she's much more attractive in her more recent films.

I'm not disputing that she's aged well by houser2112 (2.00 / 0) #12 Thu Dec 09, 2010 at 08:11:10 AM EST
I'm just saying that at some point, she lost some weight that lessened her killer curves, and she became rather waifish, and it made me sad.

i wasn't meaning to invalidate your perspective by tierrasimbolica (2.00 / 0) #13 Thu Dec 09, 2010 at 12:08:54 PM EST
or suggest a debate.   just sharing my own thoughts. =)

i could certainly understand your point of view.  as far as women's bodies go, i think curvaceous women are generally much more appealing than waif-ish ones.  christina hendricks, salma hayek, jennifer tilly, etc - all women with very sexy bodies in my opinion.  i just happen to find jennifer connelly more attractive in the face without the "baby fat" (on her face specifically).
