    Re: walt disney world christmas day parade 2005

    I don't *hate* Raven. I'm just sick of her. She was cute as a 3 year old on Cosby but that's as far as it goes for me.

    Ryan seacrest talking during all the disneyland portions...well, that's probably the one thing i couldn't stand. can't that man ever shut up?
    Someone provide me with some rope and duct tape and I'll make it happen.

    Re: walt disney world christmas day parade 2005

    Raven also got flak from Mouse nuts for some promotional appearance at DLR earlier this year. Someone asked her what her favorite attraction is and she replied "I'm too old for this, I go to Six Flags."

    I don't think she's that bad compared to some of the crap I've seen on TDC though.

    Keep in mind that the timing of Ryan's talking was totally created in the edit suite. So don't blame Ryan. But I agree with you - they should have let the parade segments breathe a little bit without narration every second. It felt as if the DL segments were very rushed, as if they didn't allot enough time for them to be done right.

    I'm not a big Regis & Kelly fan by any means, but I though Kelly in particular was very flat. Maybe she wasn't feeling good, but there was just no energy. And as I mentioned above, I think Ryan was rushed, both in his read and in the edit. Not a very good flow from DL.

    I talked about this in another thread. It's not hate, it's annoyance. Her presentation is polished to the point of falseness, as if she wants everyone to know what a good actress she is. It's said that a good actor will become the role, while an average actor will look like he's impersonating the role. Raven justs looks like she's got all these slick performance chops, but none of it comes across natural. If I were her coach I'd tell her to bring it down about 40%, & then she might come across as more real.

    As an example, look at her hands when she talks. She does this funny little pointing gesture when she makes a point - not pointing at anything, just a funny little point. It's such a staged move that it irritates the crap out of me - as if she has 27 rehearsed moves, and now it's time to do move # 14, and now go with big eyes, and now move # 23, etc. It's like Fran Drescher and her stupid sexy wink. It's just a mechanical move with no value to it at all.
