this is going to be fodder for a lot of jokes come morning...Zach Braff lovefest...not that I'm complaining...off to read the interview now...
Sept. 15, 2006, 3:51 a.m. CST
Isn't nearly as fun to watch as two hot chicks without Zach Braff. That's just me though.
Sept. 15, 2006, 4:05 a.m. CST
you didn't indicate at what point(s) during the interview Braff cried. Or looked introspective!
Sept. 15, 2006, 4:12 a.m. CST
told you what he was listening to on his ipod.

Sept. 15, 2006, 4:40 a.m. CST

fest by some loners who feel inadiquate. So SnakesOnABicycle, do you feel any smarter or adequate by that little half-arsed slander against a celebrity? I sure hope u did because everyone else feel a little stupider for having read it and someone should at least get something out of it. Seriously, guys! This guy is a good scriptwriter/actor (i see nothing groundbreaking about his directing) and can't we just accept people for their abilities. On a side not, how buggy had this site become? Appearently i have been a member for 36 years and some number of weeks. Since i havn't been alive that long, i can only assume i somehow "pre-registered" before birth. :P

was a SW prequel. I'm sorry but there's only so much Emo bullshit I can take. Snakes is right and flamingeyebrows is probably Braff. Go cry into your green tea, and think how hard life is. Jackass.

Just a few posts in and this TB has already denegrated into a ZB bashing. I know, what a terrible guy... starring in an underappreciated, yet critically loved TV show. Writing, directing and acting in a critically loved debut film. Not being a stuck-up, run of the mill hollywood fuckhole... I mean, who does this guy think he is??
Sept. 15, 2006, 9:34 a.m. CST
Or maybe it just felt like it. I think people are just trying to compensate for all the praise being thrown at this guy. Garden State was a decent first effort, but everyone in the media is begining to talk like he's "the voice of our generation." Garden State wasn't bad if you take into concideration that it was a first film, and that most directors don't hit their stride until their second or third feature. I think the next film will be a barometer for how talented this guy really is. Will he refine the way he syncs music to image, will he dispense with the emo garbage? I doubt it if people keep heaping unmerited praise on Garden State and Braff himself.

I could do with the large sum of money and thousands of raving female fans that want nothing more then get into my stone-washed jeans. But alas, life handed me the medium sized stick and i am not a star! I am amused and concerned by this thinking that if someone do not convey a utter dislike of a person or a movie, then they must either be a plant or the said person itself. Give it up! you are not fooling anyone. I agree with Shigeru. I went into 'Garden State' thinking 'the guy from Scrubs and Natalie Portman is in it' and came out thinking 'Wow! that was a good movie' and 'Ms. Portman CAN act!'. It was a sleeper hit for me and this guy wrote, directed AND acted in it. So he earned my respect. I don't think the guy is the voice of our generation but it wouldn't be too bad if he was either. Also, the gratituous use of 'emo' is annoying me. It's becoming a the buzz word like 'globalisation'. The word have a particular meaning, idiots! stop using it to describe everything that doesn't fit into your chauvanistic redneck philosophy.

is an overall good guy. Go look up the word "emo" so you can see it is a genre of music, not some category that you can file any sort of thing you don't like under. So stupid. If Garden State is so whiny, then why has it gotten so much praise from most of the audience? Life is all about confusion and where to go with it. If you've ever had any semblence of a life/social life, you'd understand that. Brycemonkey, I'm forgetting the part where Braff cries...? Oh wait, his mother died in the movie.. what a pussy to cry over that. Your the jackass, jackass.

Good looking guy has good looking woman and a perfect life. He fucks it up. Boo-fucking-hoo. If that isn't Emo I don't know what is. And yes Emo was once used to describe a genre of music but has evolved (as new words do) to a wider meaning. My Braff bashing was more aimed at Last Kiss than Garden State, for what it's worth.

It's about learning from your mistakes and not to take what you have for granted. I mean seriously, have you ever been with a girl? The movie is relatable, about being a bit terrified about having your whole life already mapped out for you because of marriage. I don't agree with the cheating but still, it is kind of scary. If you'd know. *psh* yeah total boo-hoo fest...

and Art has always been an imitation of life. and in life we deal with emotional problems. It's a fact we all have to admit one day. And most, if not all, movies deal with these emotional issues at one point or another. Even a gratituously violent movie like Crank is, by your definition, "emo". I can see you people refuting my point about art reflecting life with "what about Sci-fi and fantasy". Most sci-fi and fantasy movies act as a metaphor for life and/or exploration of current issues projected into 2000 years into the future or a land filled with dragons and orcs. Even in the most purely fantastical of movies, the characters are real with real problems. Its all about exploring the human condition in far flung situations. So does all this mean all movies are "emo"? In my opinion, No. I can acknowledge that the word 'emo' have evolved from merely meaning 'emotional' into something with much more negative connotations. But for God's sake, you cannot point and shout emo at everything and everyone that are not afraid to deal with feelings. Because that's part of life and everyone who can deal all the emotional issues life bring is, by my definition, clearly NOT emo.

...that Braff isn't really using film to penetrate and come to an understanding of his emotional state so much as reveling in it. It's emotion for emotion sake. Hence the dub 'emo'. And is art an imitation of life, or is it a means with which to understand it (study it?)
