I thought about that, too, but IMDB has listed a December 9, 2011, New York non-festival release date. L.A.'s listed as January 20, 2012, but the New York release would trump that, right? I admit I don't know all the ins and outs of Oscar regulations, so I could be totally wrong. It's been known to happen.
You are correct. I have read a few different reports about the release dates. It did get a limited release in both NY and L.A. in December 2011.
on VHS. Good cast, average special effects.
[continued synopsis]...while his last name is Applesperm, he is not a fruit fucker. He wears a pot on his head like Johnny Appleseed. Instead of chopping trees and planting apples into the ground, Johnny Applesperm plants his seed into vagina orchards otherwise known as Cunt Trees.
This news story made me think of that movie. I started reading the book I should really finish it...
My weekend consisted of the following:
Magic Mike - Excellent, in all the ways that "Steven Soderbergh making a male stripper movie" would suggest.
Celeste and Jesse Forever - Intriguing premise, but awful execution.
Lastly, I watched Robert Altman's Nashville yesterday morning. It was fucking amazing. I've had trouble with some of Altman's stuff before, but this movie - seemingly the one where his trademark style was perfected - was a masterpiece, a sprawlingly heartfelt collision of lovers, dreamers, entertainers and string-pullers. It's the kind of thrillingly alive cinematic canvas where it feels like anything could happen at any time. After digging this and McCabe & Mrs. Miller as much as I did, I may need to go on a 70's Altman binge in the near future.
Felt a little bit under the weather this weekend so decided to just go a movie marathon type deal. First off I finally watched the Bourne Trilogy. Received them as a gift a few years back but never watched them until now. After the first one my thought was why did I wait so long to watch it and had the same feeling after all of them. I thought all three were great. Next I went online and streamed the Bourne Legacy and what a downer. Not that I was expecting it to hold up or anything but shit. When it first started it actually was good and I liked the concept of it. However one of the worst stupidest endings I've ever seen in a movie. Last movie I watched was That's My Boy. It was on HBO or one of those channels last night so I just figured what the hell. I thought it was going to be a stupid movie and it was for the most part. However that shit was hilarious, the most I've laughed during a movie in a long time.
I watched Sound City on Saturday. The documentary by Dave Grohl on the Sound City Studios. Was really entertaining and amazing to see how many great albums were recorded at that place. Good job by Dave on his first film.
All Primer fans in the Bay Area need to jump on this shit:
Actually, here are all of its engagements:
SERIOUS BUSINESS GUYS
Criterion's whole HULU catalog is FREE all weekend long!
I searched and how is there no posting of the Evil Dead remake trailer? I actually just saw it a couple days ago, and it'll either be one of the most shocking horror films to come out or Hollywood will fuck this up. Hopefully the former since Raimi is producing

Why the fuck is youtube loading like I have a 56K? What is even more frustrating is the advertisements before the video plays load/play seamlessly without any wait, stops, or stutters. But the second the actual video starts, its like my internet has gone to complete shit.
Anyone else having this issue?
On Topic: Evil Dead looks absolutely amazing. I haven't been this excited to see a horror movie in an incredibly long time.
Question - Does anyone know of a good program for the PC that converts .avi files and what not to DVDs that isn't impossible to figure out how to burn subtitles?
The programs I've tried are all impossible.
