Not that I have anything against Zac Efron or Shia LeBeouf or Beyonce or Rachel McAdams, but come on! Not everyone in the world is hot! The ugly need their stories told as well.

It's a sign of how fed up I am with beautiful people, I guess. My Netflix selection this weekend was TIMECRIMES, a low-key time travel paradox movie from Spain (Mexico?) and while it didn't offer much in the way of genre refinements, it DID sport a lead character who was old and paunchy. This was just fascinating to me. I watched this guy skulking around with his bald head and puffy face and I said to myself, why would they have cast this part with Zac Efron here in the United States?
