How many times is "French Kiss" on TV in a month?
Posted Jan 17, 2004 - 12:15:27

Is it just me, or is this frickin' movie on all the frickin' time? I swear, I can't turn on the TV without seeing Meg Ryan yelling at Kevin Kline... Kevin Klyne... Kevin Klein... Kevin... whatever - that funny actor whose last name I can't spell...

Anyways, regardless of my lack of ability to spell the last name of a famous actor, this damned movie is on TV constantly. I have seen this entire film, but never in one sitting. Sometimes I see the first twenty minutes, sometimes I see a random chunk in the middle, sometimes I see the end... but I never sit down and watch it from beginning to end. I like the actors in the movie, don't get me wrong. I find them both very entertaining. And while I like some scenes from the movie, I honestly don't like the film in it's entirety. Meh.

Maybe I should just rent "When Harry Met Sally" and "A Fish Called Wanda", and watch random scenes from each, and I'll get the same experience...

I like movies. What I'm really looking forward to is Kevin Smith's new movie, "Jersey Girl". I just watched the trailer, and it looks really good. You don't have to take my word for it, you can watch the trailer yourself and make up your own damned mind.

In "Trae is a complete and total nerd" news, I ran across the other day. It's the official website for Wil Wheaton, the actor who played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation (or, for the non-nerd populace, he's the kid from "Stand By Me"). Sifting through his blog, I'm finding that Wil Wheaton seems to be a cool guy. It's rare that someone who has scary nerd fans bothers to open up to the fanbase. I think that's pretty cool.

I guess that puts him on the level of Red Dwarf's Robert Llewellyn. Robert Llewellyn plays Kryten on the program (a boxy headed android), and sometimes hosts TLC's/BBC's "Junkyard Wars/Scrapheap Challenge". Before Red Dwarf had an "official" website, Mr. Llewellyn's personal website was the best source of information on the show. Actually, in my personal opinion, it still is.

What I find respectable is that these two actors are so fond of their fanbase. They've voluntarily set up connections to their fans that most actors would actually try to avoid. What's really impressive, is that these two both took it upon themselves to put their websites up, and not some publicist. They aren't the only two people who do this sort of thing I'm sure, but they're the only two that I know about. And I think it's kind of cool.
