Crushable Commenter of the Week: Diego Argues That 'Gay' Can Be Funny

This week, Liana argued that the trailer for the upcoming Vince Vaughn film The Dilemma looked terrible and offensive: It was going for cheap laughs with homophobic humor. Vince even made a point, we found out, to keep this joke in the trailer, which is what…standing on some sort of principle? We don’t know.

But a surprisingly insightful comment did come from commenter Diego, who argued that keeping gay jokes entirely out of the cultural lexicon isn’t necessarily the solution. More »

Crushable Commenter of the Week: Inkhuldra Defends Keanu's Honor

When we expressed surprise over Keanu Reeves unexpected eloquence during his Vulture interview (in which he used terms such as re-contextualize and conceptualize), we thought we were paying the sad actor a compliment!

Crushable Commenter of the Week: Rob's 'Still Here'

There are two types of commenters in this world: Those who agree with you, and those who are idiots. Oh, also spammers. And people who write in Ukrainian and post on your site, but we mark them as spam anyway. Or, another way to look at it: Those who write short comments, and those write long, rambling, incoherent essays.

And then there are those few commenters that write something that’s longer than one sentence but less than five pages, uses correct punctuation, and actually gets his point across succinctly. So congrats to Rob for his thoughtful musings on Joaquin Phoenix in I’m Still Here. You’re our commenter of the Week!
