Go Smurf Yourselves, Smurfs

Well, it certainly sounds better then I expected.

There is still no way I'm ever going to see this film though unless it's part of a D/s scene and it's forced upon me as a punishment for misbehaving.

I'll go see it. Ummm, just so you know, Lindy...you've got some smurf in your hair. I hear it's tough to get out.

Smurf-xactly! Must we have everything from our distant and fucked up childhood, regurgitated, re-packaged and sold back to us as the "NEW" cultural glue? I'd fuck that smurfette crazy and spew the lot of them sister fuckers with enough SANTORUM to smurfy smother Smurf-ville!

Lindy, usually your editorials/reviews are pretty good. This time you're just bitching because the movie beat you to the punchline? You can do better. I know you can. Hell I've stood in your presence and listened to you tell jokes on the fly (and by "stood in your presence" I of course mean "sat in a booth at the old Del Rey") while hosting Sex Trivia. I've been reading your stuff since I moved here in 2009 & so far this is the 1st time The Stranger has published something by you that reads worse than a HS news paper.

What happened?

YEAH LINDY, I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU WROTE A BAD ARTICLE ONCE IN TWO YEARS. YOU BETTER GET BACK ON THE SAUCE OR WHATEVER BECAUSE SOMETHING HAPPENED TO YOU AND IT'S CHANGED YOUR WRITING FOR. EV. ER. I'M THE KING OF THE STRANGER, HAVING BEEN HERE SINCE '09 SO I THINK I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE CONCERNED.

Or, you know, this movie is really vapid and self-referential and just doesn't make for a good review.

Actually, a "Blue Moon" is a real thing; it's when there's a fourth full moon jammed into a season (due to the twelve-and-change lunar cycles in every calendar year). They happen every 2-3 years.

Lindy West is a 12 year old girl. There was this time when the Stranger had people who actually cared about films working the film section. Now filled with reviews by people who can't be bothered to watch them or only watch the ones appealing to 12 year old girls.

I'm glad to see that Gargamel has watched "Dr. Strangelove".

It would've been better if his arm had kept involuntarily rising in a Hitler salute, though.

@7, let me guess, you are in the local film community and at one point you or one of your equally lame friends made a shitty local film and Lindy West pointed out the shit factor in said film (which is her job) and now you have dedicated your meaningless existence to attacking her every chance you can....sound accurate? Well, that is absolutely in no way pathetic and YOU ARE THE WINNER!

@5: question.... are you trying to make fun of me? I can't really tell, seeing as how your an idiot and all.
12
oh - also @5, I couldn't help but notice that the last 3 comments you've left on 3 separate articles all start the exact same way.
13
I think this is one of the most honest reviews I have read in a while. And it made me laugh. I'll go out on a limb and say that most people need to pull that stick out of their ass and replace it with a sense of humor. "Uhhh, whatβ€”GANG-RAPE???" Priceless.

14
@11 - you're.
15
@10, actually I find most local films and those that make them intolerable. I just remember a time when the Stranger actually had a film section that had actual adults contributing...but hey, interviews with farts are much more interesting
16
@14 - fuck. i hate when I do that. thanks for pointing that one out.
17
BAHAHAHAHAHA!Brilliant as always, you magical sexy wit-queen.
18
i totally smurfed off to this review!

Someone should remind Lindy (or tell her - maybe she never knew) that the smurfs were initially a series of comic books set in the Middle Ages.

So maybe she should do some research before insulting people who take the time to write something thorough and well-informed on Wikipedia. But of course, we know she won't - that would spoil the fun, wouldn't it?
