Elisabeth Shue – The Saint

March 9, 2007

Elisabeth Shue is so innocent and beautiful in The Saint. When I went to opening night to see the film on April 4th, 1997 (I remember the date as it was the last time my ex-girlfriend and I had a nice time together), I was quite upset to see her and Val in their respective rolls, since I grew up with Roger Moore and Ian Olgilvie in the title roles. Anyway, I walked out with a bad taste in my mouth, but did enjoy getting into my black 1995 850 T5R and driving through the stunned crowd. It was a pretty hot car in that time period.

In the last two years, I have grown to appreciate Elisabeth’s versatility, esp. in such films as Palmetto, and Leaving Las Vegas.

Elisabeth, all I can say is let’s start getting you the credit that’s due. And get on your agent to find you the proper role to showcase your talent. Be the star this time. You have no business playing the supporting actor any more.

Elisabeth Shue – still smokin’!

Elisabeth ShueWTF!?

What’s the matter with you clowns? I’m hearing all these Negative Nancys out there slamming Elisabeth Shue. Hey, we all get old, and I’ll guarantee not one of her critics would kick her out of bed.

I do make fun of her – as well as a myriad of people – in my book and on my website, but I still have the greatest respect for her. She is the mother of three kids, happily married (dammit), and has a degree in Political Science from Harvard. She managed to do all that while still making films.

She may not have made terrific films over the years, but at least she hung in there and did what she loves to do. She is still greatly respected by the Hollywood business, and she will continue to earn that respect. Haven’t seen her in any scandals like so many obnoxious actors out there, so again – kudos to Elisabeth.

And the next time some piss-ant wants to slam her because she “looks bad” in a photo, stick your pathetic mug on the internet so we can have a crack at you.

Thank you, Elisabeth. Keep up the good work.
