M. Brown over at Two Dollar Cinema is hosting his first ever blogathon. Since I'm constantly laughing at everything M posts over on his site, I felt it would only be right if I chose my Mt. Rushmore of movies (and tv) as something that amuses me.
Behold: The Mount Rushmore of Awful Cry Faces
(If you're on this site looking for good graphics, I suggest you get your ass over to Cinematic Corner. Ain't nobody got talent for that here at Rambling Film.)
James Van Der Beek
James Van Der Beek probably has the most popular cry face in the world. How many have you have seen this gif without actually watching Dawson's Creek?
Sometimes I wonder if The Walking Dead's main purpose on TV is for the internet to create memes out of it. Lo and behold Norman Reedus' awful cry face. This thing shows up on every Walking Dead site out there and NO ONE thinks it looks good.
I could honestly put together a play by play of cry faces from Homeland alone, but since M. DID ask for this to be from movies, and I already cheated, I went with Romeo and Juliet. This cry face just screams "Oh! I'm a stupid 14 year old that doesn't know how to have an affair AND I WILL DIE FOR ALL THE LOVE!" *vomits*
"He doesn't look like he's crying in that picture." You might say. EXACTLY! This was one of the worst attempts at crying/anger I have ever seen. How Cuaron actually let this in the final cut is beyond me. It was fucking awful, and I'm one of the biggest Harry Potter fans around. Daniel Radcliffe has thankfully improved, and I guess he'll always have Prisoner of Azkaban to remind him how much higher he's climbed on the cry face ladder.
Thanks for hosting, M. Brown!! I salute you by crying with joy.
