And speaking of goddesses celebrating their birthday (although are goddesses actually born, or do they just rise up out of clam-shells in the surf?) tomorrow is the 50th of one Miss Nicole Kidman, and so we're devoting this week's "Beauty vs Beast" at The Film Experience to her with one of our cruelest competitions of ever. So make like consumption and click on over to tear these gorgeous lovers apart!
"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. "
