I know. Nothing on the Globes, nothing on the Oscars. That’s right – the inspiration just isn’t there. I’ll just say this: I loved the Oscars this year and what they did with the show. They could have killed the second musical act (with Beyonce and Zac Efron) to save time, but the show finished ahead of schedule anyway. They also could have done some more thinking about who was giving the speeches to the various nominees. DeNiro to Penn was awesome, but Cotillard to Kate Winslet? How was that not Emma Thompson? Adrien Brody to Richard Jenkins? Cuba Gooding Jr.?!?!?
And with that, let’s move on.
Matthew Goode plays Andrew Veidt/Ozymandias in the movie, expected to be one of the biggest hits of 2009.
But the 30-year-old actor – who has previously appeared in Match Point and Brideshead Revisited – went on the offensive after learning hardcore fans are saying he doesn’t suit the character before even watching the film.
He said: “The negative feedback is relayed by my friends. I think the fanboys aren’t particularly happy – there are a load of people they’d have rather had in before me.
“It’s already being slated before they’ve seeing anything.
“But if fanboys still hate the film after going and seeing it, they can all line up and s*** my d***.
“I don’t give a f***.”
Matthew added: “I’m having a child and that’s more important to me – so I don’t give a f***. Grow a d***.”
Is it bad that I think that he actually has the proper perspective here?
Now, there are people that have seen the film, like David Edelstein of New York Magazine, who says, it is an “awe-inspiring corpse: huge, noisy, gaseously distended by its own dystopia.”
