WATCHING

Oh my god this is fucking AWESOME! This is so fun!

I didn’t know what to expect, but it’s really extremely good. And it’s easy more thriller-esque than it is comedy.
It’s funny too, but it’s got me in a dizzying adrenaline rush…
And you can stop with the “Kristen Stewart doesn’t smile” talk. She smiles in here, even if she doesn’t smile, I smiled because she made me smile, she’s a funny chick.

You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you’re going to go through life thinking that girls don’t like you because you’re a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won’t be true. It’ll be because you’re an asshole.

[I wish we could have seen Prinadora, Rom’s first wife and Nog’s mom.]

Editor’s Note: The 6th season episode “Change of Heart” had a B-plot written that would have featured Rom’s ex-wife/Nog’s mother Prindadora, but it was cut for time reasons before being filmed. The Ferengi Family actors (Aron Eisenberg, Max Grodenchik, Chase Masterson) used to perform said B-plot at conventions on occasion, with Grodenchik’s wife/Trek pre-production coordinator Lolita Fatjo filling the role of Prinadora.

There is a scene in Nima Nourizadeh’s American Ultra (written by Max Landis) where Mike is telling his girlfriend, Phoebe a crazy comic book story he made up in his head. He does this alot. At the point of him ending his story, any other movie would have her roll her eyes and tell him how dumb it all sounds. But she doesn’t. She’s crushed. The story to her is better than any movie. She encourages him to do more with his ideas because she loves them and him and wants everyone to see the person she sees. This is a story beat you never see in movies. This is the kind of conversation my wife and I have daily. Pushing each other to pursue our crazy ideas. In movies, the typical three act structure says that any couple has to reach a point where they break up and then at the end live happily ever after. It’s boring and it sucks. Sure, Mike and Phoebe go through alot in the movie and come close to breaking up but instead spend the entire time fighting for each other. True Romance is seriously one of the only other movie couples that share this magic. It’s sad. My wife and I root for the “power couple” on and off screen and wish they could conquer all. Wake up Hollywood and pull your heads out of your asses.

[I love thinking about how history will describe Rom after the end of DS9: “Grand Nagus Rom was responsible for major reforms in Ferengi society, and was also a technological genius who made several contributions to the Alliance efforts in the Dominion War. His mother, Ishka, was a pioneering feminist activist, and his wife Leeta also contributed to Rom’s successes. His son, Nog, was the first Ferengi to join Starfleet. He also had a brother who owned a bar on an old space station.”]

 I think if your clients want to sit on my shoulders and call themselves tall, they have the right to give it a try, but there’s no requirement that I enjoy sitting here listening to people lie. You have part of my attention – you have the minimum amount. The rest of my attention is back at the offices of Facebook, where my colleagues and I are doing things that no one in this room, including and especially your clients, are intellectually or creatively capable of doing. [pauses] Did I adequately answer your condescending question?”
