RSS icon Comments on Lindy West's Motion Picture Column


I just noticed the column last night and was delighted. Her movie reviews are more entertaining than the films themselves. I'm stuck, can you refer to films as "them"? Sorry, Lindy, I wanted to write a compelling endorsement, but now it just looks like an illiterate likes your writing. Will you settle for a sincere endorsement?

Where's her RSS feed?

Lindy is the James Agee of our time, only with more booger jokes. (Put that on a book jacket.)

Lindy is that rare Stranger writer who can be as funny as she wants to be without ever having to resort to the phrase "my vagina."

Of course, elenchos, but that's because she would have said Vajajay, cause she's hip.

Not that Annie's not hip.

I fucking love Lindy West and her awesome reviews. After dealing with the clusterfuck of a '27 Dresses' screening last week, I walked out of it going "Jesus, Lindy West was right about KISS 106.1."

And her 'Golden Compass' review was great. I ended up referring a lot of people to it when asked how the movie was.

2nd generation! That means I need 2 buffer seats.

@6: No, you certainly would not.

I'm a fan. The review of "Beowulf" was the best I think I've ever read.
