If you'll indulge me for a moment, I'd like to discuss something that no one on the Internet has ever touched before: female celebrities (possible wordplay intended).
Specifically, British actress Emilia Clarke.
As you may know, the 28 year-old actress is most famous for her role in "Game of Thrones" as Daenerys Targaryen, despite the fact that her character is 13 in the books.
The show has essentially given Daenerys the same treatment that Disney gave Matoaka.
What's that? Doesn't ring a bell?
Perhaps you know her by her more famous nickname: Pocahontas.
Yeah, she was 12 when she first encountered the Jamestown settlers IRL.
And speaking of questionable portrayals of Native Americans, back to Emilia Clarke.
It's an odd segue, I know, but let me explain.
Turns out Ms. Clarke has had a bunch of other, let's say, less memorable performances.
One of these was for a 2010 TV movie for the Syfy network, called "Triassic Attack."
In the movie, CGI dinosaur fossils are reanimated by a Native American museum employee using what can only be described as "pseudo-Native American magic," although it did manage to help the segue from earlier make sense.
While the premise of the movie could've worked if done right, a good idea can still be ruined by bad execution, which is how "Triassic Attack" got a rating of 3.1 out of 10 on the Internet Movie Database.
Rotten Tomatoes isn't any kinder to her; her lowest rated movie on that website is "Terminator: Genisys" at 26%.
In fairness, that might have less to do with her and more to do with how it retconned the original Terminator, though one of the many things I've learned from playing "BioShock: Infinite" is that most inconsistencies in a plot involving time travel can be explained by alternate realities and/or timelines.
Ms. Clarke's highest rated movie is just barely below "fresh": a 2012 film called "Dom Hemingway," rated at 59%.
By comparison, Romanian model-turned-actress Madalina Ghenea (seen here, looking like a poster on Andy Dufresne's cell wall) appeared in the film, albeit for a short period of time. That same movie is Ms. Ghenea's lowest rated film on Rotten Tomatoes; her highest rated film got an 86%.
Point is, if Emilia Clarke is in a movie, and a background character in that movie has a more highly regarded movie career than her, that's not good.
But I've seen interviews of her, and she's just so damn likable, I can't bring myself to hate her for what most actors would consider a regrettable career.
Am I the only one who thinks that?
