I reviewed Matt Ross‘s 28 Hotel Rooms on 1.22. The trailer went up hours ago.
Yay, look, people having sex! They’re naked and frollicking and having SEX in hotels and they’re awesome! Wow, can’t wait to not see it!
Didn’t somebody do some poll– Maher was talking about this last week I think– where they found out that most Americans have had like two or four sexual partners in their entire lives? Whatever it is, the number is SUPER LOW… Most people don’t have sex for months, years, DECADES at a time… Movies always make it like we’re a nation of gym-builds meeting and hooking up with people and fucking them… But that’s like a maybe ONCE IN YOUR LIFETIME occurrence… Usually it’s just married people having grindingly dull halfhearted sex, if ANY… Fuck, I know plenty of 40 year old VIRGINS and I live in fucking Los Angeles. Nobody has sex like they do in movies, unless you’re SUPER RICH or super SUPER DUMB.
Good looking middle-class lame white people don’t fuck. It’s the really rich and really poor who can attain sex. For the rest of us, it’s some IMPOSSIBLE DREAM….
But then again I’m going on like this dude is Michael Fassbender and NOT that charisma-free midget from DEVIL… WHY is this asshole in movies again? Chris Messina????? Who is a CHRIS MESSINA FAN who is all, yeah, I need to see my FAVORITE ACTOR Chris Messina getting laid on screen.
It’s all such fucking bullshit. I just want some goddamn sex, some movie sex with the chick’s body all arched and porny and enthusiastic and in good shape doing sex moves… For most people, even when you get laid, it’s that bad Robert Altman movie type sex that doesn’t look like porn and doesn’t look like a Victoria’s Secret ad. Plus you’re just worried about getting something on the outside of the condom and your life being over.
As usual Lex overstates a bit, but really who on earth is a Chris Messina fan? He almost sank ‘Six Feet Under’ for me. He was completely not credible in ‘Julie & Julia’. He even turned up like a bad penny in ‘Vicky Christina Barcelona’. Who is he?
Chris Messina is just some dude who’s around LA and knows people. Apparently a nice guy, dates lots of women (friend of mine went on a date with him). No idea if he’s a good actor since I’ve never seen him in anything except VCB and he was a non-presence in that.
Decent trailer except for the crass/jarring/painfully on-the-nose SHOUT at the end, which negated everything that came before it.
As I more or less said in my initial review, the film is worth the admission for Marin Ireland’s performance.
I don’t like Chris Messina either. He’s probably one of the worst actors I’ve seen in years.
I really love the trailer. This is indeed a must see movie for me. I can’t wait to watch this film.
I honestly don’t understand what all the fuss with mister Messina is about. I think he’s a good actor. Not the “Brad Pitt level” but he’s doing well out there!
