Jake Will Knock Your Socks Off

I haven't even watched very much TV this week but I swear to you every time I've turned on the TV Jake Gyllenhaal and Jeff Bauman (the dude Jake is playing in Stronger) have been on whatever random show I have turned on. I mean I swear I saw Jake and Jeff giggling in the background of a Billy Eichner's big "acting" scene on AHS Cult last night. It's ridiculous! (I mean Billy Eichner's "acting" obviously.) 

Anyway I am sensing through the pain beneath my eyeballs that the daily onslaught of movies movies and more movies for NYFF is starting wear me down so I'm going to try and take it easy this weekend, but I will definitely find time for Stronger at some point. I hear Jake is very good! He might even nab another Oscar nomination, although this year's Best Actor trophy really is Gary Oldman's to lose at this point right? I only semi pay attention to Oscar chatter and even I can see that juggernaut coming.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

Can you confirm whether or not you actually see anything in the full frontal shower scene? It was like staring directly into the eclipse and I couldn't do it.

Or maybe we could try not nominating white dudebros playing other white dudebros in "inspirational" movies for a change.

Sorry, but it's a bit tiresome to even contemplate that an entire movie was made because one privileged white guy was brought down to Earth by something horrible happening to him. Welcome to the rest of humanity, dude.
