LA Diary
« on: August 21, 2008, 08:29:22 AM »
The Guardian have a lot of good film blogs on their site, and if you subscribe to their rss feed, you get them all. Unfortunately, this means that you, amidst all the good stuff from Peter Bradshaw and Xan Brooks, also get one of the worst movie-related blogs I've read, written by Lisa Marks, who is a struggling (I'm guessing; however, incredibly self-important) comedian/journalist/screenwriter who moved to Los Angeles in search of a career. She devotes a lot of time to lame namedropping and other assorted celeb-by-asssociation tales, in a "gosh, you wouldn't believe who I saw at the supermarket! That's just LA for you!"-way. Most of the time it's just straight up unreadable.

Why do I bring this up? Because in her most recent entry, she bumps into Kevin Smith, and I can't help passing that along, can I?

The first (and only at this point) comment made me laugh really hard.

"Kevin Smith. Possibly the most talentless and awful film maker in Hollywood."

Martin, you'll appreciate this.

Jason Solomon, of the film podcast, is an Arsenal fan.

Also, I won a DVD once from their contests.

So I endorse your endorsement of Guardian film.
