Tim, you know you called Jeffrey Wright the name of that pedophile dude who played the principal in Ferris Bueler? That's one actor you might not want to be mistaken for.

Oh, and Tim, I didn't want to bring it to you, but I can't let you go around mispronouncing genre. It's pronounced "john-rah," not like Bruce Jenner's last name.

Let's get past that, though. Speaking of torture porn, I did see "Saw V," because I was in the Halloween spirit for some reason. Stick with me on this proposal: "Saw V" is a Superhero movie. Yeah, you're reading this right. That movie was not scary, and there's no difference between Jigsaw and the Punisher, which is why I'm calling this movie a superhero movie.

Finally, I know you want to "interview" Thandie Newton (which is a fucking good choice), but I want to "interview" Rosario Dawson- I don't care if it's in a single occupant bathroom at a gas station.

You said she's in a bunch of movies she doesn't belong in (like "Eagle Eye" or "Clerks 2"), but there's one movie she was PERFECT FOR: "Alexander."

Alexander was, whatever it was, but she pulled those luscious things out in that movie and I was in love all over again.

BTW, I know you guys don't do TV reviews, but there's this online series Dawson Does called "Gemini Division." for Sci-fi channel's website. I wanted to get your opinion on whether they're working off a script or not on those first few episodes, because the dialogue is incredibly grating in the beginning.

It's like 3 minutes an episode, so that's no great waste of time.

See, that's what I'm talking about. What was that, 3 "Faggots", that JD spouted? Doesn't seem like a JD episode unless he says it.
