I hear you, guys. You’re mad that Shailene Woodley is cast as Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider Man because she’s so incredibly ugly. And I respect that, because it’s such a legitimate complaint that’s not at all rooted in your own pettiness or insecurity. More

During my childhood, when I wasn’t geeking out over the Star Wars universe, I was eagerly watching all of his irreverent movies — Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Blazing Saddles, High Anxiety, Spaceballs — and quoting them to anyone within earshot.
