An attempt at a new layout, with horrible glitches, and very minimal knowledge of HTML.


I just recently took something called The Ultimate Jack Sparrow Quiz on Facebook, without realizing it was supposed to be for ladies.

Anyway, why did I mention that? Oh right, Johnny Depp. Somehow Johnny Depp is getting too...familiar. Especially this certain smirk that he does. There are some roles that don't have that smirk, like Raoul Duke in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, or Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. But in this movie, Johnny Depp as George Jung definitely has that smirk. And in the trailer of the upcoming Public Enemies, Johnny Depp as John Dilinger also has that smirk. C'mon!

Moving on, Blow is actually another one of those drug movies. There are actually two types of drug movies: first is the feel-good stoner flick, like Pineapple Express; next is the hard-core drug film, like Scarface, the I-want-to-be-a-drug-dealer-because-they-make-a-lot-of-money-and-don't-pay-taxes kind of film. And obviously, this film is not like Pineapple Express. Go figure.

Anyway, here's what I have to say to the actors.
Johnny Depp: Work on that smirk.
Ray Liotta: You are always great.
Paul Reubens: Nothing's changed. You will always be Pee-Wee Herman to me.
Franka Potente: They murdered your screen time!
Penélope Cruz: I really hate your accent.

does ray liotta star in any non-drug-related films? i've only seen him in goodfellas, so i guess i'm biased already. XP it seems like he hasn't had any really good movies since then, which is just sad... :(

@ornubs: i liked blow too. but i don't know why i gave it six stars.

@tina: now that you mentioned it, i don't remember any ray liotta movie that isn't drug-related. but i'm sure there's at least one.

btw, he also played tommy vercetti in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. He did the voice, and was the model for the character.
