Focus quote, by Michael Medved, critic: Who is going to want to see Downey Jr. and Law make out? I don't think it would be appealing to women.

It’s like, you wish we cared you think women wouldn’t want to see Downey and Law make out.


If you’re just saying that to be controversial, then sorry, you’re several years too late. We’ve already had men embarrass themselves online making stupid statements about women’s sexuality.


And if you’re saying that because you actually mean it, then sorry, like I said, wish we cared.


And don’t get me wrong: I’m really not interested in seeing Robert Downey Jr. make out with anyone. But check out the operative phrase there. I’m not interested. Not that women aren’t interested. See how I don’t generalize about what women like/are interested in? A lot of you scared-stupid men could learn from that.


I’ve decided I’m going to make you a T-shirt, Mr. Medved, that says, “All I really need to know about women’s sexuality I learned from watching my dick shrivel every time I thought about it.” And then I’m going to mail it to you.

*snerk* I love the T-shirt idea. It's simple, yet eloquent.

:) Glad to see you back, darlin'.

The man has his head in a hole (not the fun ones.) On the other hand, I'd wager his dick is actually very happy when he thinks about Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law kissing. *cackles*

So now you give me a minute, yes?

And now that you mentioned it, yes, he didn't say gay men like him would love it.


*delicate cough*

Excuse me what? When/where are they kissing? What did I miss??

(MIchael Medved is a fucking idiot)

They're not even kissing! That's the funny part. Robert Downey Jr was just trying to make press for his new movie, and it got this fool's his heart palpitating. He's about to have a stroke trying not to think about Holmes bottoming for Watson. Cause you know that would be some dirty stuf.

Jaysus, now I'm all excited about a movie I can't imagine will be that great. *ggnnn*

Yeah, Holmes would so be screaming insults at Watson about how he's not doing it right. And Watson would be so hitting him hard on the thighs with a horse crop.

Yeah, I read that comment several days ago. I thought it was one of the more ill-informed and/or ill-thought out statements I'd seen in quite some time.

How can a man who gets paid for airing his opinion on movies be so dense?

Because it's the new America. Where one doesn't keep in touch with what's happening out there. Especially if you work in the film industry.

I mean, even plenty of straight guys I know are aware of the concept of bromance now. If nothing else, as a film critic, he should say something intelligent on the subject. Not burden us with his personal worries.

Your icon is for the win.

LOL...okay, not only has he been living in a cave (not my Dirty Old Lady Cave, even), but he's also a moron. Doesn't he know *anything* about Robert Downey Jr.? He's *joking*, playing up the subtext. Nowhere does he say Watson and Holmes are doing it.

Good gravy, small minds. And I love the comments that are all "Oh noes, now I won't see it!" *sigh* But there are some really great comments in there, that are letting him know what's what. I hope he reads them.

I like Robert Downey Jr., but I'm not sure I want him for this role. I wish Mark Strong could have been Sherlock. And you can bet a million dollars I'd pay big bucks to see him and Jude make out. *quivers*

Please, please, please don't put images in my head. It'll be my great test to not make a big post about how Guy Ritchie secretly wanted Strong for the role of Holmes, as evinced in the way he dressed Strong in RocknRolla, etc. I writhed for days imagining him in the role, all gaunt and obsessed with internal things, and then now I should see him in my head up against the wall with Jude Law?? *wails*

Where were we?? Oh, yes, the critic guy who made the comment. *shakes head* I wish someone would show him what his kid is watching.

Oh god, when he gets Jude against the wall, can he please lick him? Just long, and slow, up from his chin to his cheek? And maybe to his ear where he whispers horribly naughty things in that knickers-dropping voice of his. rowrrrrrrrr...

~~happy place~~

Guy Ritchie is my hero. Though I wish he would have made Strong/Law in this film, or just gone ahead and done RocknRolla2. It's a sequel I despair of never materializing...doesn't he know it's bad luck to advertise the sequel at the end of a movie before you've made the sequel? That's backfired too many times. Gah.

(But you know, they are making another Remo Williams. It's only twenty years later. *gah*)

hahah! notice that michael medved is "a former Post movie critic" - his opinion can't be any good or valid, otherwise he would still be employed.

and i beg to differ - i totally want to see robert downney jr. make out ...

Well, I know you do. And I know that if he doesn't get to make out with Watson and if the movie is half way decent I'll have to consider writing you PWP. Because I remember that I still owe you porn from an anime fandom.

I read this a few days ago and cackled. That man is either a clueless gay man or an obnoxiously stupid straight man. What gets me is I rarely see something that naive posted on the internet. Which, for me, is the Land of Two Men (Or More) Kissing. That's like the whole point of the Internet. That, and two chicks kissing.

Google ranks a distant third.
