|Look, here's a shiny new psycho. Enough clickthroughs and he'll probably show up. He stinks like the kind of guy who trawls his weblogs.
Here he is; psycho emphasis is all his.
Now the reason for this blog posting, is Christina Ricci has a new movie coming out. I just watched it get reviewed on Roper and Ebert, by Kevin Smith no less and it seems like something I’d like. Normally I don’t like to read a lot of reviews or even watch a lot of previews and trailers as I want the full experience, not to have the best bits ruined. Some trailers are great and compel you to see the film, others compel you to not see the film.
Anyway Christina Ricci’s new film is called “Black Snake Moan“. She plays opposite Samuel L. Jackson who I like, but the reason I like the film is the concept. She plays a backwoods nympho who Jackson’s character finds half dead and nurses back to health. He also decides to reform her by chaining her to his radiator. The fact that Samuel L. Jackson is a forgotten blues musician who visually resembles R. L. Burnside helps things along nicely.
The fact that Christina Ricci is a wee lass with big brown eyes probably contributed to her becoming my favourite actress. She wasn’t always ridiculously thin, but she seems to have gone down that path at some point like too many actresses in Hollywood, but at her normal weight she has some curves, but at 5 feet tall, how much can she weigh? I learned her height, again by reading her IMDB entry for this blog posting, I also learned that she stopped growing at ten.
Some people take obsession to a whole ‘nother level to find out crap like that, but I guess growing up a child actor takes away most of your innocence and privacy. Being a blogger definitely costs you some of both. I think I managed to work in every Christina Ricci fact and film I’ve seen into this posting. At some point she appeared on the cover of a magazine I read… That article may have influenced me in some way, I vaguely remember the interview. Oh I really liked her in “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”, which again stars Johnny Depp, and again is directed by one of my favourite directors, Terry Gillian. Christina Ricci fits my pantheon, I’ll have to add her to my webpage.
