Nine Kisses

I would watch a feature length movie where Rosario Dawson and Jenny Slate fall in love on New Year's Eve.

I would watch that movie SO MUCH.

I enjoyed those. The background noise sometimes didn't seem to fit the scene, but otherwise, very fun.

Every single one of these was so well written and directed. My only complaint is that, though I loved the David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall one, I wish they hadn't felt made the sole male-male kiss a joke (and a super manly-man joke at that).

Also, is Kristin Stewart a good actress? She was perfect in this short, but is that all she can do?

Also, is Kristin Stewart a good actress?

In her first film Speak (when she was 13), she is the main & sometimes the only character in every scene. She doesn't speak a word through the whole movie, conveying a universe of complex and conflicting emotions and ideas entirely through facial expressions and body language. When I first watched it, I thought "this actress has serious talent." One can see why she was chosen for Twilight; if anyone could handle the inarticulate torment & longing central to that book it'd be KStew.

I need the backstory to the Miles Teller/Gugu Mbatha-Raw kiss. They're at a wedding, obviously, and she's the bride. But he isn't the groom, is he? And was that a goodbye kiss, or an I'm sorry kiss? I have so many questions!

Also, good lord, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is just incomparably lovely. I just watched her in Belle, and she is such a luminous presence on screen.

1. Left me unaffected
2. LOL. Funnier if they'd switched places in the end.
3. Sweetest so far
4. Really gendered. Genderswap would have a wildly different tone. I like it, though.
5. Also pretty gendered.
6. Funny. Nice range of emotions. Funny how the same-sex pairings have been black/white, too.
7. I like it? Boxing terrifies me.
8. Dancing also terrifies me. I have no idea what's going on here. He seems like a bit of a creep.
9. Why is he running? I think she must have been getting married to someone else. Wow.
