I thought maybe she was named after Thomasina Paine, the hero of the revolution in Death Race 2000 but that name is spelled "Th".

Maybe she could change to Tomspanx and get some sweet sponsorship money.

I've never seen, except I did start watching it last week (only saw like the first 10 minutes) and fell asleep.
Was not sure how I felt, but now I have to try again!

Good news, after you watch 'Rent', you can catch the sequel on YouTube...

I really enjoyed this movie. I grew up with Jesse L. Martin as Detective Greene on Law and Order.

I went in cold, not knowing he was in it and he made me cry so hard.

No thanks, they can keep their money. Spanx (and other similar shapewear) is the debil. I got talked into buying one for a formal event, but I ended up taking it off and throwing it in the trash because I couldn't fucking breathe.

I don't know where else to post this, so totally off topic. But guys, I'm working on a new digital edition of an Elizabethan play which includes going through the Oxford English Dictionary for period definitions. So, I was working on the word 'Tragedia', and found this:

Look at the author of the last sample quotation. What's happened to you, OED? You used to be cool.

I'm currently watching Rent and I'm noticing the bottles of Dos Equis on the table. I can't help but think that they're being a tad presumptuous.

I've seen a stage version of Rent before, when I was a young lad, and watching the movie now (which I have never seen)... Jesus, this thing feels more dated than an Al Jolson number from The Jazz Singer.

I've heard the "dated" accusation twice now, and at the risk of sounding horribly naive or like an insensitive clod, I'm not sure I understand why.

Granted, I haven't finished it yet, so maybe something wildly offensive is waiting for me just around the corner, but since the movie establishes itself in the first line as taking place in 1989, I've been able to chalk a lot of the things that wouldn't fly today as "it was the Eighties, almost Nineties."

Please forgive my ignorance if I'm missing something huge. It's also possible that maybe this is a discussion that should be saved for the movie thread proper.

For me, it just feels very deliberately 90s, in the performances and in the songs. I say that being someone who feels the phrase "timeless" is overrated. Something like Star Trek is something that could ONLY have happened on TV in 1966, design-wise, aesthetically, it's cast, its social message, etc. The X-Files could have only happened in the 1990s, and is very 90s, for the same reasons, and you feel that watching those shows. I love that about those shows and I feel that it adds to their authenticity. They were genuine artifacts of their time and that's beautiful.

Rent just feels... disingenuous and engineered. Like the people who designed Poochie the Dog decided to write a musical. I know that might be an arbitrary distinction, but it's something I feel pretty distinctly while watching it.
