    Fuck that noise. It's an incredibly tense and brutal piece of genre work.

    Sean Durkin is doing a ten episode television adaptation of The Exorcist. Could be very interesting, though they haven't announced/don't know where it will air.

    Assault on Precinct 13 in no way qualifies as a horror film. It is also rather shitty in retrospect, but I'd imagine at the time it came out it was cool. Saying that it's even in the same league as masterworks like The Thing and Big Trouble In Little China is fucking crazy.

    I loved Precinct 13 as a kid, but aside from that opening sequence, its fangs no longer have all that much bite, whereas The Thing and Big Trouble still play perfectly.
    It's still a tightly made film and there's much about it that works, but it's impact has faded quite a bit since its release.

    Between this deal and a few others, I'm all set for summer blockbusters between now and September. I'll totally see MIB3 for $12/pair, but I doubt it's worth $25+/pair.

    I will be at Nausicaa but it's this Saturday, not June 1st. I would also like to see Mononoke on June 3rd, but I will have spent 10 hours at Cinefamily the previous day watching Satantango. So that may not happen.

    Oh yes I was getting confused with dates Nausicaa is this sat at 7:30 & 10:30 and Princess Mononoke is June 1st at 7:30 & 10:30 ( not June 3rd) :P

    The calendar has updated times for Mononoke due to the recently-added Damsels in Distress run. Mononoke is at 10:30 on 6/1 and 7:30 on 6/3.

    Whoa. Jack White's cover of U2's "Love is Blindness" from "The Great Gatsby" trailer is frickin' phenomenal.

    You can listen to the whole thing here.

    Also, I watched "The Five Year Engagement" today (free ticket) and found it insufferably long and dreary in a lot of parts. Some cute/funny moments, but probably the worst I've seen from the Apatow clan. Jason Segal looked a bit Jabba the Huttish, too. His face looked giant and splotchy next to Emily Blunt's near-perfect complexion. Blunt even made Alison Brie look ho-hum. Movie stars.

    Yeah, I don't know who thought doing a 2 hour romcom would be a good idea. They needed to cut 20 to 30 minutes and it would have been alright. There were some funny moments and some of the San Francisco stuff was filmed about a mile from my house which made it a little more enjoyable. I did like Brie's british accent though.

    Silly of me to assume I'd be able to see Moonrise Kingdom this weekend. Guess I'll have to wait or catch when I'm down in Hollywoodland.

    Wrong. Funny People was way worse.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I haven't seen The Five Year Engagement and won't be attempting to, but even though it's from the same Apatow sub-clan, I can't imagine its worse than Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

    An hour drive to the closest theater playing it, the Arclight hollywood. Holiday weekend traffic + ticket prices... I'll just wait on it.

    True. Also, if anyone is a stickler - the Arclight shows are all digitally projected. The Landmark, on the other hand, is only showing it in 35mm. I feel like this movie, shot in Super16, needs to be seen in an environment where the textural elements can be best appreciated.

    EDIT: I say this as someone who generally prefers Arclight to The Landmark by a wide margin.

    'Pixote' was sad, but beautiful and pure. Youthful encounters getting over the deceased relationships quickly. No wonder the acclaim.

    I really didn't see the tie-in for a coors light/Prometheus ad, but now that I think about it they're both representative of the beginning stages of something horrible, and frightening to come.

    Tonight, the TallGuy household held an '80s double feature (both first-time viewings) of Robocop and Labyrinth.

    I really loved Labyrinth, the sheer amount of imagination and creativity that went into it was pretty amazing. Y'all are crazy in regards to Robocop though. I mean, I liked it well enough, I just don't see exactly what everyone loves about it so much.

    I think Robocop is a big nostalgia trip. I remember it being on a couple times when I was younger and thinking it was just crazy insane awesome, and now I only like watching it with my Dad since he pumps it up so much while we watch.

    Its just one of those "yeah, badass movie" but you move along deals for me.
