I was trying to download another scene from Rock Hudson's lengthy beefcake-stuffed career to share this morning here on the 91st anniversary of his blessed birth but the clip was taking too long to download - it wasn't going to be morning anymore by the time I had it ready to go! - so here we'll use this scene of him and Robert Lansing taking a steam together in the 1963 war film A Gathering of Eagles instead since it's right here. Happy Rock Day!
"I'm not sure why you're bothering. You will never - not in a million years - give the movie anything other than a negative review. It could check every single box of personal likes for you and you would hate it because it's a Christopher Nolan film. Meanwhile, you will heap praise on a piece of vacant, emotionless dreck like A Ghost Story and never once take issue with the fact that the lead actor is a rapist. Or you will spend hours praising effervescent masturbatory indulgences like the Twin Peaks reboot as high art. You are a fraud. An emotionally stunted child who has no business offering film criticism. "
--- If Michael Kirkhere was angry at me before I'd even reviewed Dunkirk then I guess he's probably none too keen on me now after I actually wrote my none too kind review. But here's to "effervescent masturbatory indulgences" though, for sure! Them's our faves!
