Lisa Bonet?

Now there's a name I haven't heard in a long time...

In part because she now calls herself Lilakoi Moon (her son is named Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa).   Apparently, she doesn't go for standard names.

Except for Wolf sounds pretty Polynesian, which makes sense for Momoa.
“Hello, I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. By true, I mean...false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end, isn't that the truth?

The answer is no.”

La La Land is on Netflix. Emma Watson and Ryan Gosling are charming but unable to dance.

What about Emma Stone's dancing abilities?
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

Don't know if she can dance, but I do know she's topless in her next movie.

Well, right. What’s Watson up to these days?

I haven't seen her in anything since the rape cameo in This Is The End.

Google says she's done about a movie a year, none of which I had heard of.
I'm up $25 on DGuller.

She was half-topless in The Favourite.

Ditto, though hard to blame her for taking (what I presume to be) smaller roles after HP. She has a lot of freedom to only take what she pleases now.

Quick reminder about next year's dress code:

“Hello, I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. By true, I mean...false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end, isn't that the truth?

The answer is no.”

Finally saw the whole of Margin Call after watching clips on Youtube. I think it's a great movie. Focus on the story, doesn't try to explain the technical details (don't get me wrong, I liked that The Big Short tried to be edumacational, but they are very different kinds of movies). Generally doesn't try to explain details that are not important. Good acting, which you expect from Jeremy Irons et al. Hell I don't usually care much for Simon Baker but he does a good job here.

Finally watched 'The Big Short', I liked it and agree with you.

Stand out for me was Christian Bale finally putting in a performance I liked and Brad Pitt playing his low key.

Clearly I'll have to catch 'Margin Call' now.
