Movieline's Week in Review: Enjoy the Rapture!

You know what the biggest drag is about the world supposedly ending tomorrow? We'll never know who won at Cannes. Well, there's that part about an eternity of earthly damnation, I suppose, but it can't be that different than some of what we saw befall culture in the last seven days. Let's revisit the good, bad and the ugly in Movieline's Week in Review, and drop in Saturday and (hopefully) Sunday for the soothing weekend strains of weekend editor Dixon Gaines. Have a good one!

· From Terrence Malick's latest to Palme d'Or front-runners, Stephanie Zacharek had Cannes covered airtight.

· Ed Helms got a head start on the Rapture by disappearing from his SNL hosting gig.

· Thanks to our illustrious (and apparently final) interviewees, including Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Sam Claflin, Jeff Tremaine and Verge designee Christopher Wallace.

· Lars, Lars, Lars, Lars, Lars.

· Bridesmaids will likely go down as the last sleeper hit known to humankind.

· Brangelina, you evil, glamorous bastards, don't ever change.

· We gave long test drives to comedies both new and used.

· The Terminator is out, The Sperminator is in.

    Maybe they're just going to rapture Lars von Trier so Stephanie doesn't have to sit through any more of his "jokes" come this time next year.

  • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

    Right? Obviously no one condones what he said, but I have spent all week trying to figure out how one unfunny bit of bad taste -- for which he apologized -- can wipe out a decades-long relationship with Cannes. Dane Cook tells terrible jokes and he gets to play Madison Square Garden!

  • The Winchester says:

    That right there is quote of the moment, good sir.

  • j'accuse! says:

    Well, you're defo right about that. I was going for the easy chuckle w/ that one. You know, if I'll give Mel a second chance, I'll defo give Lars one. Just still shaking my head at what he said. Like when you set up a buddy of yours to meet a girl at a party, and you stand there as your buddy totally botches the whole thing. Like that. It's kind of like, man, Lars, you could have played your cards better. Maybe next time buddy.
