Everyone who digs house should check out Laurie's book The Gun Seller. It's superb.

Blades of Glory = 1 hour and 33 minutes long
Grindhouse = 3 hours and 12 minutes long.

That means Blades of Glory can have twice as many showings as Grindhouse. So, it's really not that bad. Especially with a budget of 55 million.

I thought she had another kid, that just makes it even less sad than it already wasn't.

I don't care that she died at all.

There's plenty of people over in Iraq every day, yet, you don't see anyone posting topics for any of them.

She had a kid, so what, s/he's probably better off without Anna for a mom.

Pan's Labyrinth = 96%
Letters From Iwo Jima = 94%

Now, for a review of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

If you've never heard of this little gem, than you are definitely missing out. It stars Hugo Weaving (V for Vendetta, Agent Smith from The Matrix) and Guy Pearce (Memento) as a cross-dressing duo who team up with a transexual (Terrence Stamp) to travel across the outback in their bus Priscilla to get to the location of their new cabaret gig. Making many friends and enemies along the way.

It's extremely well made, and has a nice plot and message to it. The plot seems a bit contrived, but it takes itself surprisingly serious. Even if it doesn't sound interesting, it's worth the rental just to see Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce in drag, and they do some excellent acting.

That was kind of dissapointing to see. I've had the soundtrack for the movie since about a week before the movie came out, and it was excellent, so I was expecting big things for the movie.

Yet, that was kind of dissapointing.

Silenzio, did you get the CD from your brother?

Children of Men


Amazing, and I mean AMAZING cinematography. Yet, the general story was pretty lacking. The acting was pretty good, though. Along with the soundtrack.

Just finished The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. Just bought The Prestige and Little Children today.

Little Children is so far one of the worst books I have ever read. With such poorly worded sentences such as

Why was it that other mothers could never remember the titles of anything, not even movies they'd actually seen, while she herself retained lots of useless information about movies she wouldn't even dream of watching while imprisoned on an airplane, not that she ever got to fly anywhere?

That's basically how the whole book is.

I was kidding with the gangster comment. And by gangster, I mean "gangsta". Think 50 Cent's Bulletproof.

yeah it's a remake. Taking a Western and adapting it to a Samurai movie. Sounds familiar, eh? Like the way Sergio adapted a samurai movie to a western, eh? Also, Darren Aronofsky wants to take a samurai Magna (whatever that is) and adapt it into a western. It's like the two genres are interchangable.  Roll Eyes

The Manga is Lone Wolf and Cub, same manga that Road to Perdition was based off of. So, this will be a samurai manga with two adaptations based off of two different periods of American crime.

I'm waiting for the gangster version next.

The reason Tarantino is in this is because Tarantino and Miike are very close friends.

For instance, he was the one who decided to put the cameo of Miike in Hostel (He was producing).

These are the two best recuts.

One recutting the same theme.

Planes Trains and Automobiles as Brokeback Mountain.

Office Space as a horror movie.

Well, Darren Aronofsky is currently in pre-production on a Western. It could easily turn out very well.
