artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

female gazing at: Matt Smith


From the most recent episode of Doctor Who, “The Lodger.” Because he’s not buff and is sorta funny looking and also immensely talented, which makes him sexy as hell. At least as the Doctor.

I’m posting a picture like this one every weekday, of a man who is attractive and desirable, because I like to look, dammit — and because the female gaze doesn’t have to be such serious business.

Oh, and also as a fuck-you to Bret Easton Ellis, who thinks women don’t like to look.

(If you have a suggestion for someone we should female-gaze at, feel free to email me with a name or a link to a particular photo.)

    He’s adorkable is what he is! In fact, if you go to tvtropes.com and look up ‘adorkable’, you’ll find Matt’s picture! Really! Plus, in the ‘examples’ section, under ‘live-action TV’, they list the Doctor(Tenth and Eleventh) as the first, foremost, primary, and defining example of ‘adorkable’!

    ///yaaay!

    I didn’t find him attractive until the new season aired, I guess there’s something about being a Time Lord that makes them extra sexy, because now I want to marry him and some other things that would be innappropiate for me to write down here.

    oh just go and ruin all the fun, why don’t you!

    He’s better looking in real life.

  • Becky

    I wish I had something intelligent or witty to say about today’s subject but all I can manage is ‘hot daymn!’

    @Nadia – same here – the first ‘full’ trailer we got – when he turns to Amy and says that he’s the Doctor – that’s what did me.

    MaryAnn – *thank you*

  • Barb

    I really don’t find MS attractive really. Still missing DT too much.

  • I must say I really do approve of this new bit on the blog.

    Yes, keep up the good work!

  • halavana

    Oh please. Bret Easton Ellis is an idiot. If women didn’t like to look at attractive men, there would be no website like http://www.zdaily.com/dailyhunk.htm

  • Angel

    Adorkable is absolutely the word. I’m twice his age but his flusttery fabulosity has won me over.

  • Nina

    I thoroughly approve of this new weekly post. I nominate Richard Armitage & John Simm for some deep gazing.

    Ditto.

    I thoroughly approve of this new weekly post.

    Daily. Daily! (Well, Monday through Friday, but still…)

    I nominate Richard Armitage & John Simm for some deep gazing.

    Oh, they’re close to the top of the list.

  • I_Sell_Books

    Daily, yes! Must ponder who to suggest…Idris Elba? Timothy Olyphant? Louis Fereira/Justin Louis (from Stargate SGU, which, if you’ve missed any of it, is freaking fabulous and possibly my favorite of the Stargate series so far)? Damian Lewis? David Duchovny?

  • maureen

    I second John Simm and Richard Armitage, but especially Armitage!

  • Lisa

    All of the above. And Justin Bieber, of course.

  • amanohyo

    The chorus of his most famous song is a single two syllable word repeated over and over. He takes the misogyny and materialism of hiphop and makes it PC and palatable enough for small children. The sound of him singing live makes Lucifer weep tears of joy. Japan cranks out pop idols of his ridiculously low caliber by the dozens every month, and he is the physical manifestation of all that is tawdry and trite and talentless in this world. I don’ care if you’re twelve, what on Zeus’s polluted Earth could anyone possibly find sexy about Justin Bieber!!?

    *deep breath*

    Sorry, I got carried away there. It just creeps me out. It’s as if I were to tell you, “Paris Hilton was totally sexy when she was fourteen! And her music, it’s the best!” You’d give me a good stern talking to wouldn’t you? And rightfully so. At least the lyrics in Hanson’s song had more than two syllables per word..like things. Justin Bieber?! Has the universe gone mad? I don’t care if you suggested it sarcastically – it’s evil to even think such things in jest. Hannah Montana is freaking Billie Holiday next to Justin Bieber. Must… calm… down…and remember… this is… universe… that made…Twilight… bestseller. Okay, I’m fine now.

    (I bet this is what AsimovLives feels like when someone mentions Abram’s Star Trek)

    Here are my rather conventional suggestions – feel free to make fun of them all you want Lisa: Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, and Javier Bardem

  • Lisa

    Crikey. Tone of voice is so important in conversations.

    Yes to

    David Tennant
    Daniel Dae Kim
    John Simm
    Derek Riddell
    Idris Elba
    Henry Ian Cusick
    Timothy Olyphant
    Javier Bardem (was in the same room as him once – massive charisma)
    Nathan Fillion
    Denzel
    Zachary Levi
    Sendhil Ramamurthy
    John Cusack (circa Grosse Pointe Blank)
    Depp and Clooney (so predictable but they’re so beautiful)

    (not sarcasm)

    Having never consciously (willingly) listened to Justin Bieber, I can’t speak to his music. I just picked him because he’s the latest teenybopper and therefore the antithesis of what I would consider sexy. I’m vaguely aware of him on a pop culture level, I don’t know what he looks like. I’m sure if I was 14, he’s be the bomb, yo.

  • Lisa

    Michael Fassbender, definitely

  • Lady Tenar

    He’s not buff but he’s in shape. Which is perfect. *thumbs up* I wasn’t even such a huge fan of the last episode, but Matt running around in a towel greatly improved it. Yay, fan service!

  • Christine

    Timothy Olyphant, Lee Pace, James Marsters, Cillian Murphy, Eric Stoltz

    There will be others.

  • Lisa

    ^I have to keep stopping myself from adding names – don’t want to hog the thread.

  • Newbia

    [DOCTOR WHO SPOILER! –added by maj]

    I have to say: I never expected to find Rory attractive, but he looks amazing in his Roman soldier outfit. Rawr.
