The Resemblance Test: Who Has A Face To Match?

Post The Resemblance Test: Who Has A Face To Match?
So, there was a thread about how we thought James looked. Most of them were, well, inaccurate. Do not post those in here, however; this thread is solely for the people who know how our hero actually looks (well, in photo). This is a resemblance thread. I have taken a hard-nosed vivid online search to provide close-to-perfect replicas of Mr. Berdainelli. Add what you will if so compelled :ugeek: This is a tribute to the man who sits through the dreck, the cesspools, and the Sex And The City rip-offs.


First, our subject, film critic, James Berardinelli, killing a newborn with his laser eyes:

Sex and the City is your best example? I could think of a billion worse films. As a fan of the series, I'm angry. :x

So far, this is a close contest between David Byrne and Wall-E

He looks a lot like Atom to be honest.

And where did you got those pics of the real JB Evenflow?

The first was taken at Ebertfest 2002. It appeared on-line as part of someone's coverage of the festival. Sheryl dislikes this one so much she has threatened to post a "better" one. I would agree that it's not a good picture of her and I look entirely too cheerful.

The second was taken in Disneyland in 1998 by my sister. It was, I believe, the first picture I posted to my website to give a face to the name. I was 30 years old at the time.

That one too cheerful? As opposed to the extremely cheerful pic you have on your site?

If I'm smiling, it's too cheerful.

That's more of a smirk than a smile.

Seriously, James, haven't you ever watched 'Exotica' and went 'Wow, if they were making a biopic of me, this Thomas guy would cut it, no problems'?

Unfortunately, James rarely smiles for the camera. It was a very difficult task to find pics of James smiling. I found a few photos but most of them involved niece and nephews. I won't post the pics without their parents' consent. I hate that pic from Ebert's festival, hehe. I forgot that picture exists.

Haha, sorry about the pics above. They're all I could find online. They have been removed and replaced by the 'evil eyes' photo.


I apologize for reminding anyone of Disneyland at anytime :(
