Hypnotizing Fishermen Isn't Acumen!

What, you thought I'd let Eva Green's 40th birthday slide by with nary a mention? Well... technically I did, since it was yesterday. But I was working on it! I went above and beyond y'all, and forced myself to suffer in the name of Eva.

Yup I was speaking there of Tim Burton's terrible 2012 Dark Shadows movie, which she's nevertheless one hundred percent fab in, and which I just wrote up today over at The Film Experience for this week's "Great Moments in Horror Actressing" post. Who could have guessed? I mean who would have wanted to think of this terrible movie again long enough to guess it? Somebody send me in the direction of a supercut of just her scenes, please...

Sigh. I'm a huge fan of the TV series on which this poor, poor movie is based; it is, as you've noted, very difficult to ... tolerate. But I do love me some Eva Green.

Ugh! Burton and Depp have ruined too many childhood favorites... Crap Shadows, Charlie and the Crap Factory, and Planet of the Crap (a Burton solo but I’ll go ahead and blame Depp too).
