Contributing to Global Warming Because Hold ’em Couldn’t Offset Watching Juno — 8 Comments

  1. I really liked Juno. Light comedy is one of the few areas where you can still see real acting that requires timing and characterization and doesn’t rely on CGI it get things done.

  2. @Glenn Palmer: can’t argue with that, but heavy drama will do the same for a character. I loved No Country for Old Men because the a lot of the Villan’s pure evil seemed to come from within.

  3. Thanks for asking! I went to Incredible Pizza! It was incredible.

    And just a few days before that I was outside on a rather windy night and watched my new stepsister smoke a cigar and drink wine while in my new aunt’s pool. It was something I’d never done before. I’m all about change these days.

  4. @Redneck Diva: I thought your new leaf was to stop hanging out here! I’m glad you’re back and unemployed so you can blog/comment more.

    Cigars and Wine? OMG – you will be Whine and Sheese Neck!

  5. Now that I’ve seen the movie, I can safely agree: Juno is a film about hot-button subjects (abortion, teen pregnancy, adoption, etc.)
    The real flashpoint issue in the film, of course, could have been abortion. Here Cody’s politics (presumably pro-choice) are at odds with her plot needs (a birth) and, who knows, maybe commercial dictates, too, if studios worry about antagonizing the evangelical audience. It’s a tension the screenplay finesses deftly, undercutting both pro-life and pro-choice purism. Pregnant Juno at first reflexively embraces abortion as the obvious option, and her best friend is at the ready with phone numbers; she’s helped other classmates through this. But just when pro-lifers might be about to denounce this display of secular humanist decadence, Juno stomps out of the clinic, unable to go through with it.
