    It must have been a hard week to be you, Natalie. Ah, I don't blame you for feeling a little frazzled. You stood up for what you believe, and in the end, how can we make any country better unless we do just that? I'm with you, Natalie. Keep fighting the good fight, and don't let anyone stop you or tell you different.

    She's good yeah but I will always be a fan cuz The Professional was such a badass movie among badass movies and she was such a big part of that, even the producers and directors must have been blown away at what they had created for cinema

  • avedic
    avedic Year ago +11 how that mention of The Professional was to make fun of the creepy fan-base of older guys who are _reeeally_ into that movie...for reasons I don't need to spell out. Pretty cutting and funny joke though...I bet(or hope) Natalie herself had a hand in that idea. That aside, The Professional/Leon _is_ a great's a killer slice of 90s crime thriller. But the characters and dialogue and cinematography all give it this cool noir feel. It takes place in NYC, but kinda _feels_ like Paris. It's subtle, but elevates the movie to a cool unique place. And it's less quick-cut loud whiplash action(though, it has it's moments) and more meditative human and psychological, which I like.
    And yeah, Natalie's performance is quite good. Though I definitely think her best role was in Black Swan. I've always had a bit of a celeb crush on her, but it wasn't till Black Swan that I gained a whole new level of respect for her as an intelligent creative and nuanced actor. She's just a genuinely cool human being.

    Funny...she didn't complain about the part of the skit that addressed her as a sexualized 11 yr old...Lorne and Chris must be misogynists, and the female writers/cast members, as well as Ms. Portman must have internalized their own misogyny. #Timesup everyone!

      When The Professional came out in theatres, there was a number of middle aged men who fetishized Natalie's character, despite the movie being a thriller movie, not some pedo movie like Lolita. The pedo joke was a reference to that.

    • owlcu
      owlcu 8 months ago +1

      Depends on the woman. Sometimes short hair looks great if she has a long personality. But usually men are attracted to opposites, so boy-cuts can be a turn off. When women shave their legs and underarms it doesn't look like us, and we like that.

      Well, it could have something to do with the fact that mentioning The Professional was to make fun of the creepy older guys who are _biiig_ fans of that movie...for certain reasons, which I think you can figure out. Pretty biting and funny joke though...I bet Natalie herself had a hand in that idea. That aside, I totally agree with you...The Professional(or Leon) is a great's a killer slice of 90s crime thriller. But the characters and dialogue and cinematography all give it this cool noir feel.
