Woo!! Woo!! All Aboard The Rooney Mara Bandwagon!!

Are you tired of Meryl Streep garnering Oscar nominations every single year by playing real people (next year she plays Clara Barton, Bette Davis and Mamie Eisenhower in the same movie!)? Are you upset that Michelle Williams earned an Oscar nod for playing Marilyn Monroe when Marilyn Monroe herself was never nominated? Are you disgusted that "The Help", that meringuey flim-flam, got nominated for anything? Are you sick of women getting nominated simply for playing men?

If so, this is your chance to act! Say NO to the conventional! Say YES to piercings and McDonald's Happy Meals! Say YES to Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"!

That's right, for the next month, right up until Academy Award Sunday, the Rooney Mara Bandwagon will be criss-crossing this fine nation to show support for the one nominee who thinks men should perform cunnilingus more regularly on their ladies. (Too much? Over the top? Then go watch a Margaret Thatcher biopic. The Rooney Mara Bandwagon is no place for you.)

Join now and you will get your very own "Fuck You Fucking Fuck" tee shirt, combat boots and fake mohawk wig and eyebrow ring!

Wondering what the price of admission is to board the bandwagon? Worry not! It's completely FREE! All you have to do to join is sing along and headbang to "Immigrant Song"!

This Oscar race isn't over yet! Not if WE have anything to say about it! And we're going to say A LOT!

Evil With Evil Shall Be Expelled!

Although, that being said, she's my third favourite of the lot. So, eh.

No thanks. Rooney Mara completely ruined the character. Lisbeth Salander (for me) is strong-willed and has been victimized for too long. For that reason, she is a fighter. Rooney Mara makes her seem weak, afraid of her own strength. I did not care for her at all.

Andy: Yay!

Andrew: Nay!

Matt: I thought she made her vulnerable, which I suppose manifests itself as weakness in certain moments, but that's also what prevents her from just being another in the endless manufacturing line of two dimensional ass kicking superheroes. And I personally appreciated that.
