Toronto Film Festival Fugs and Fabs: Julianne Moore and Kate Bosworth


Just when I think Julianne Moore might be entering Noted Crackpot territory, she (sort of) pulls it together.

Mostly Well Played, Felicity Jones at the Toronto Film Festival


Almost all of these work for me. But it’s possible that’s just because Eddie Redmayne shocked me into general acceptance.

Well Played, The Imitation Game at the Toronto Film Festival


I am very excited about this movie — I hope it’s good! — because while my favorite genre, of course, is Romantical Troubles During War Times, I ALSO love The Thwarting of Nazis (ideally, one can have both), and I really am into code-cracking and also Using Fabulous Manor Homes For Secret Spy-like Missions. Plus, I am totally back in on Keira — she seems really happy lately, and I’ve missed her — and also, hello, Matthew Goode and Branson.

I will, in fact, stick the trailer after the jump, in case you want to see it:

The Fugp: Noomi Rapace


The blond was, at least initially, for a role. But now she looks like Lady Gaga.

Fab and Fug: Greta Gerwig at the Toronto Film Festival


I bear Greta Gerwig no ill-will, but I have to admit, I’m a bit relieved How I Met Your Dad didn’t go. Not every show needs to have its Rhoda or Frasier, and not for nothing, those two were already beloved characters. A better analogy might be that it’s for the best that Friends did not roll into a show called Mates about four people who live in New Mexico in a yurt. Maybe if they’d put Joey in a yurt… wait, I’m rambling. Let’s just do the clothes.

Toronto Film Festival Fugs and Fabs: “This Is Where I Leave You” Premiere(s)


A movie that features both Tina Fey and Connie Britton (and Jason Bateman) feels like it’s hitting a MAJOR Fug Nation sweet spot. All it needs is Pacey holding a gallant umbrella over someone’s head while George Clooney smiles calmly and Prince George toddles past in pursuit of something totally inappropriate to eat.
