Ballgame is the man
« on: November 19, 2009, 11:49:43 PM »
Matty Robinson, a co-host of the excellent movie podcast Filmspotting, likes to say of an underrated performance, "I don't want to see his Hamlet, but [X] is not bad in this role." You don't want to see Kristen Stewart's Hamlet—and based on a few lines Ed reads aloud in an English-class scene, you really don't want to see Robert Pattinson's Romeo—but both actors are ideally suited to their roles as pining sweethearts separated only by the fact that one lacks an eternal soul.

He must be gloating like crazy.

He doesn't know yet... tried calling but got no answer. Sure he'll be bragging tomorrow.

I think you need to come up with more Matty-style witticisms. Is that a word?

But then it would ruin the dynamic. One of us has to be mundane and uninteresting... right?

I think you're interesting. You just need more hooks. I suggest a new catchphrase. "That's cineriffic!" is a good option.

I'd like to see Kristen Stewart's Hamlet.

Congrats Matty!

I always remember him saying, "I wouldn't want to see his/her Lear"
