Hello and happy Tuesday! Apologies for missing last week, but life got busy. Anyway, good news: Fear the Chick Flick has become a regular column at Film Takeout! It’ll be running on Thursdays, and I’m super excited to get to continue the work.
For November, we’re going to be celebrating the B-List Dudes populating various directors’ filmographies. Today we start with Kathryn Bigelow, Oscar winner, kick-ass action director, and B-List dude connoisseur. Fair warning: most of these dudes are from Zero Dark Thirty, because for all its controversy, it is also a veritable smorgasbord of hotties. Pick your favorites, and I’ll announce the winners at 5:00pm.
Bigelow movies: The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty
Journalist-turned-screenwriter Boal is both smart and a total babe. I should probably not include him because he has an Oscar, but it’s for screenwriting, so tragically, no one remembers.
Bigelow movie: Zero Dark Thirty
I would love to be able to remove Clarke from the B-List, but he has made terrible choices, including the lesser apes movie and the most recent terrible Terminator film.
