" 6/10. Not a huge fan but I don't hate it either. I'm big into sparkles but the shape of this dress looks like it could be a pantsuit too. Wouldn't go so far as to say it's ugly. "

" Left: You’re the “pilot” of a drone over Pakistan, watching on your computer screen in Nevada as a rocket you fired vaporizes an al-Qaeda safe house. Center: You’re a woman suspected of murdering your husband, breaking down after six hours of denials and saying, “All right, I did it—and I’m glad I did it!” Right: You’re a three-year-old drama queen, emphatically letting your mother know your feelings about Brussels sprouts."

"As Alice Ward in THE FIGHTER Anyone can play a villain mother. We've seen them in tons of movies. What's hard to do is for an actress to avoid just playing unabashed evil, and to instead give us a mixture of good intentions with ill-conceived ways to accomplish them. Leo's character in The Fighter loves all the children she has, but she hasn't been taught how to love them. The fact that the actress manages to get that across to us and lets us sympathize with her rather than simply despise "
