Day 299 - Half Good Julie & Julia

Day 299.

Though it's probably not true, I like to think that I have a monopoly on all Julie & Julia-related internet content. That being said, I'm always welcome to newcomers entering the prestigious J&J online ring so I try to keep my eye out for new Julie & Julia posts/videos so I can pass them along. Screened.com recently put up a "Half-Good" video on J&J and I have to say, it's one of the most well-done, definitive looks at this terrible movie that's out there right now.



Like they said in the video, Julie & Julia is literally half good. The Julia Child half, of course. And Julie Powell is a whiny bitch. This is not news. But it's nice to hear it from somebody else. Well done, screened.com. You've earned The Official Lawrence/Julie & Julia Project Seal of Approval*!

*Can be bought for $5.

  1. Do you endorse blogs that are copying Julie and Julia while poking fun at the concept?

  2. I often joke in my blog (a Beatles blog) about someone making a film of it, making parallels between me and John Lennon. It's just a silly idea, but that happens in Julie/Julia.
    But, gosh, i love that movie.

  3. I always fast forward through the julie powell sections. That should be an option on the DVD. Widescreen or Fullscreen, with commentary or without commentary, Julia Child scenes or cut off own arm.

  6. What makes a good tagline or saying? Good taglines are first and foremost chanel replica handbags. In a sea of similar offerings, consumers notice brands that stand out, and creative taglines help brands distinguish from competitors. Apple’s brand rejuvenation in 1997 is an example: to counter flagging sales and a negatively impacted image, it launched a revolutionary advertising. Its new tagline, “Think Different” was a refreshing spin on IBM’s “Think. ” Rather than trying to take on the reputation for reliability and trustworthiness of its chief rival, Apple positioned itself as a dynamic brand with inventive alternatives to the status quo. Meters/bonwe, China’s leading casual clothesline brand, uses the line “p? 8?, ” which roughly means “Not walking the traditional road. ” Mercedes Benz uses “Engineered like no other car in the world. ” Both taglines work wonders for these companies because they suggest a rolex replica uk to consumers who buy their products. Successful taglines not only draw attention, but explain how a product, service, or organization will fulfill the desires and fulfill the needs of customers.
