Someday, I hope that I will be able to prevent myself from watching movies/TV shows with actresses I think are hot, no matter how shitty said movies are.
I’m pretty decent at staying out of theaters for these movies, simply because they’re too expensive (Tomb Raider 2 being a notable exception), but when they’re on TV, I can’t not watch.
Thankfully, to make up for Angelina Jolie‘s recent streak of really, really abominable movies, Clea DuVall (if you saw But I’m A Cheerleader, she’s the super-hot badass chick) has found herself in a pretty damn good TV show called Carnivàle.
I wasn’t quite sure if it would make up for her involvement in the atrocity that was Ghosts of Mars, but then I watched the mini-marathon HBO ran today, and discovered her character has Major Lesbian Subtext going on, and all was forgiven.
I will also admit that my inner film nerd appreciates the fact that the show is fucked up without veering off into Lynchian territory, but that statement will only make sense to film geeks.
Basically, the show’s just fucked up enough to be really, really entertaining.
Even if you’re not drooling over one of the leads.
