Your recasting of Singin in the Rain is very strange.



Your recasting of Singin in the Rain is very strange.
What's so strange about it? The three actors are charming as hell, and Gordon-Levitt knocked it out of the park when he performed "Make 'Em Laugh" on SNL in 2009.



Can Emma Stone just do that retrospectively, in everything?
If you hand me the petition, I'll sign it.

That's a good one – I can picture it.
Mads Mikkelsen should play the embodiment of Death in every film ever.

It's a deal.

Mads Mikkelsen should play the embodiment of Death in every film ever.
He was great in Valhalla Rising I thought. That had some nice stuff in it, and I was staggered to learn where it had actually been filmed.

Death in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen was really memorable, especially on the big screen. And there's also that great bit where he temporarily becomes a doctor to try and collect the Baron's soul.

I really like you recasting of The Shining.



I have to return some videotapes.
American Psycho

Patrick Batman - Christian Bale
Paul Allen - Jared Leto
Jean - Chloe Sevigny
Evelyn - Reese Witherspoon
Timothy - Justin Theroux
Detective Kimball - Willem DaFoe


There is no need for recasting, it's already as good as it could ever be in my eyes.

Charm is one thing...singing and dancing is something else...can Bradley Cooper sing? Can Lupita N'yongo dance?

Was Jared Leto in that!? I can't remember him. It'll be funny seeing him in the film post Suicide Squad.

Actually, I might re-think Witherspoon's casting...not on my list of favorite performances of hers.

Lupita Nyong'o can do anything. As for the singing, wasn't Debbie Reynolds dubbed over in the original?
