    You may remember Lindy West from her epic review of Sex and The City 2: Menopausal Boogaloo. Probably the most appropriate scathing movie review written in years.

    Well, now she's working for Jezebel, and decided to re-watch Titanic for the first time in 10 years. If you like a little snark, it's worth your time.

    I think she's filled in for Magary on a couple funbags recently. And by recently, I mean the past year or so.

    Also, that Titanic review is great.
  3. How could she not snark on Bill Paxton's sea captain sweaters? My favorite line:

    Albert Brooks was the king of snark when he pointed out how bad the writing was based upon how often the characters had to say each other's names. You can never watch the movie the same again

    I have never seen the movie. But, by Tebow, I loved that snarky review.

    I know it's hip to slag Titanic, but I rather liked it. Very visceral.

    I just clicked on the link, and I'll get to reading it shortly, but holy shit is that photo/headline hilarious. Although I'm sure the photographer is bent that some asshole put text on his artwork. :)

    I enjoyed Titanic, too.

    I've never watched the first half of the movie.

    I always just skip ahead to the boat hitting the iceberg. Shaves a good hour and a half off the film and I get to see the cool stuff Cameron did to get the boat to sink.

    Mere snark. But very readable mere snark.

    That was good, although she was one use of "hella" away from me going iceberg all over my keyboard.
