In today's edition, I did not enjoy Zach Braff's most recent film, and I continue to publicly air my increasingly pathetic celebrity crush on Anna Kendrick, who is wonderful and talented and lovely.
|I loved Garden State. I still unabashedly do, in fact. And while it's far from a perfect film, I think a lot of the vitriol hurled at it is exaggerated, want-to-be-one-of-the-cool-kids groupthink. Hell, I even sorta-kinda liked the off-brand, Shasta Cola version of it, Elizabethtown. So, I think I have some credibility when I say that Wish I Was Here is a cloying, self-indulgent waste of time that doesn't have the decency to be not boring. This rental is overpriced, and I say that knowing that you're in a library and it's free. Also, Zach Braff's utter disrespect of the subjunctive mood pisses me off slightly.|
|If you don't fall in love with Anna Kendrick after watching this, YOU HAVE NO SOUL.|
Or possibly, you have a soul, but it sucks.
Seriously, she's lovely.
