Looks like a lot of good wins this year. I’m a long time fan of both Michelle Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis—and also liked her parents Janet Lee and Tony Curtis. I’m not a big Brendan Frasier fan, but some of his roles left an impact on me from near the beginning of his career. School Ties for instance, but that racist Matt Damon kind of stole the show!
(Relax! I mean his character)
Tony Curtis also famously played a racist (Again, I mean his character!), but I think he best film was The Vikings, where he didn’t play a racist, but he killed a rapist.
Janet Leigh was also in The Vikings, but she’s most notable for being the first major slasher victim, nearly 20 years before her daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis, “killed” the first major slasher serial villain.
I’ve been a fan of Michelle Yeoh since Tomorrow Never Dies, but Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was my gateway drug into art house film. It’s one of the best gateway drugs along with Blade Runner, 2049, 2001: A space odyssey, Vertigo, and Mulholland Drive. I’m currently watching Star Trek Discovery… she plays two characters, and one of them is (you guessed it) a massive racist! :D
Some trivia: The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor had Michelle Yeoh and Brendan Frasier in it. But it currently has 13% on Rotten Tomatoes.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
