The Entertainment of Fashion
Meet the big men on campus … literally, in the case of the Hulk. Iron Man is this group’s quippy quarterback, while Thor lifts barbells rather than hammers (which the cheerleading Black Widow definitely appreciates).
That sound you hear — 1960s folk rock — is definitely coming from the Moonrise Kingdomtable, where Wes Anderson’s crew exults in hard-to-find vinyl. As Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman prove too cool for school (Schwartzman’s reading some J.D. Salinger novel, but you probably haven’t heard of it), Tilda Swinton’s ironic knitting habit references her ironic love of Portlandia’s “Put a Bird on It” sketch. So … it’s sincere?
It feels like Sly, Arnold, and Bruce never graduate: They continue hanging around the same old haunts, reminiscing about the old days when they ruled the school. Somehow, they’ve roped Jet Li into their clique. His mom must be so disappointed.
When actors channel Woody Allen’s nerdy neuroticism, wedgies will follow, and this time, they’re administered by moonlighting burnout Sylvester Stallone. Watch out, Jesse Eisenberg and Alec Baldwin! Can’t Ellen Page enjoy her anime and her weirdly old-school love of 1930s jazz recordings in peace?
In the past, teenage pregnancy meant spending a surefire semester “out of state,” but these days, it’s the ticket to MTV success! At least, that’s the immaculate J.Lo’s way of thinking, and it helps that she’s passed her baby to resentful beau Rodrigo Santoro. Things are a little more harried for Cameron Diaz and Anna Kendrick, though they wear those baby stains (and strains) well.
