There is nothing intentionally good about the film Skyline. And there is barely anything unintentionally good about it, either. Except for one Hall of Fame Bitch Shot that shall forever live in memory.
Recently-streaming Skyline is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. And I watch a lot of horrible cinema on purpose. I've seen student films and even regional theater with more capability than anything happening in the 93 minutes it takes for masterminds the "Brothers Strause" to essentially hunt assholes in Marina Del Rey.
The only thing good that came out of this film is a singular shot of actress Brittany Daniel, in one of the most incredible reaction shots of all time:
It just conveys so much attitude. "And WHY the hell are you interrupting my Virginia Slim and Canon time?"
In addition to her roles in White Chicks and on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (she was the tranny Mac dated), it looks like Ms. Daniel can now add 'instant meme' to her résumé. Here's a few I came up with, but please feel free to make your own and share! We need to get her out there!
It is with this parting gift that I leave you, before my annual journey to San Diego begins. I'll be updating frequently on Twitter from the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343) as I coordinate my sixth year at Comic-Con International - which despite a more low-key programming schedule should prove to be one of the most exciting cons for me, personally and professionally.
Wheels up Tuesday at 5am...see you on the other side!
