A lot of the reason why Colbert fans appreciate the Repor(t) more than The Daily Show is that Colbert stays in character for the length of the show, even during the unscripted interviews and the occasional ad-libbing. I think you could at least admire the dedication he has to the bit to be able deliver Colbertian riffs completely off the cuff.

Nahhhhh, you keep on being you and completely shit on everyone and everything that rubs you the wrong way.

I’m pretty sure he didn’t “prepare” the Bush White House staff when he did the 2006 White House Correspondents’ Dinner. And as much I’d like to think the White House thought he was a legitimate conservative comedian, it was the White House Correspondents’ Association who booked him.

With the bralessness, I’m surprised it’s not 40.

He’s married to Buffy. Also, I don’t know, maybe there’s still some “Chico and the Man” legacy money still lying around.

Is Mel Gibson attached to this reboot? Then it’s gonna be the Jews. Looking back, I’m surprised they didn’t cause the apocalypse any of the first three times.

It’s not so much about people wanting remakes as it is Hollywood playing it safe with big-budget movies, especially to a global audience in which the U.S. is just one market (and which will be surpassed by China as the largest market in the next 10 years).

When Hollywood comes up with something new, like John Carter of Mars*, it’s a risky venture because people aren’t instantly familiar with the character or story; they have to be made aware of it, and even then, it’s not like their appetites are so whetted that they’re dying to see it. But say “Batman” or “Mad Max” or “Thor” or a dozen other known properties, and you get enough people drooling. Hollywood calls it preawareness: if it’s a popular property/franchise that enough people are familiar with, then it already has a built-in audience and it sells itself—worldwide.

*Technically, John Carter was not “new” but based on a 100-year-old story, but it was new to most people.

Jesus christ, stop feeding the fucking conservatrolls already.

If you can get past how she treats her arms like a doodle pad, and how her eyes look like she’s dead inside, then yes, she’s reasonably attractive here.
