If, while reading today, you notice a stray u in words like "colour" and "honour," or you realise that "realize" is spelled with an s, do not adjust your browsers! Movies Without Pity has gone global! I'm reporting to you live from Birmingham, England, where I've been working for the last eight days. Whilst here in the Midlands, I shall visit Mr. Craig's onscreen persona when Quantum of Solace opens on Halloween (more on that next week). I'll also visit his actual persona to see if I can take that free Aston Martin off his hands. One major plus to being here is that I can escape the bombardment of political commercials currently clogging up my TV at home. Unfortunately, I can't escape the candidates nor the election, which leads me to an article in The Guardian about celebrities and politics.
As much as my Jersey upbringing makes me love dirty politics, I'm still sick of the U.S. Presidential race. It's the one reality program more drawn out than Flavor of Love. "Be over already, for God's sake!" I scream at the TV. I'm hoping tonight's debate suddenly becomes an episode of Dancing With the Stars. Seeing the two candidates put aside their differences to dance an ass-kicking version of the lambada (it's the FORBIDDEN DANCE, y'know) would do so much to heal America's wounds. Especially if they dance with each other. But I digress. In honor of tonight's sure-to-be-boring rehash of promises neither side will keep, here are some political movies you can enjoy.
