Fugger: Dakota Johnson

Fugs and Fabs: The Black Mass Photocall at the Venice Film Festival

I’m starting to understand why Johnny Depp prefers to parade around in movies where he’s lost in a character, and in life buried under the the clothing equivalent of a dreamcatcher someone found in the street: It’s because when he’s standing somewhere ostensibly just as himself, with little to hide behind, he has no idea what to do.

We can also use this to discuss the Black Mass trailer. Whitey Bulger is a fascinating character, to be sure, but I have a hard time taking this film seriously because Depp’s makeup and those icy blue lenses are distractingly bad. If they wanted him to be Old Ray Liotta, why not just cast Old Ray Liotta? Why make Johnny Depp look like the supernatural demon version of him?

Fugs and Fabs: HFPA Grants Banquet

The title of the event was snoozy, but fortunately, Halle Berry may have a Pavlovian reaction to the letters “HFPA” — sponsors of the Golden Globes — and so she busted out something that may have been raised on a nut farm.

Well Played, Dakota Johnson

This isn’t going to set the world on fire with how amazing it is, or anything. But nor is it going to cause us to run, screaming, from the screen as if our hair is on fire:

Sometimes, that’s enough.

Look, I get that it’s HOT:

But the rest of us are managing not to wear our nightgowns in public. (Cute hair, though.)

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: Metallics

Anne Hathaway just might be the Droid I’m looking for, except I don’t want to end that sentence on the preposition, so I’m still typing.

Well. This is all over the place. As usual.
