So sad. Lucas was one of my favorite movies as a kid. It has the best slow clap scene of all time. Freaking drugs. :(
This is a really intriguing article from this month’s Esquire about Roger Ebert’s life, 4 years after cancer took his jaw and his ability to speak. Read the whole article here.
Roger Ebert canâ€™t remember the last thing he ate. He can’t remember the last thing he drank, either, or the last thing he said. Of course, those things existed; those lasts happened. They just didn’t happen with enough warning for him to have bothered committing them to memory â€” it wasn’t as though he sat down, knowingly, to his last supper or last cup of coffee or to whisper a last word into Chaz’s ear. The doctors told him they were going to give him back his ability to eat, drink, and talk. But the doctors were wrong, weren’t they? On some morning or afternoon or evening, sometime in 2006, Ebert took his last bite and sip, and he spoke his last word.
If you think the Twilight Saga is as craptastic as I do (but still watch the movies for shits and giggles), please do check out this scrumtrulescent review my dear friend Liz at Kills Me Dead wrote upon seeing New Moon.
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll hurl.
Sheriff Eric Northman > Kinda King Aro. Aro was still kind of hilarious, although Iâ€™m sick of people making â€œYouâ€™re such a curious oddityâ€ eyes at Bella all the time. Pro tip: you canâ€™t read her thoughts because she doesnâ€™t have any of her own.
The good news: Bryan Singer is set to produce and direct a Battlestar Galactica movie!
The bad news: The movie will be based on the original show and it won’t feature any of the GOOD parts Ron Moore created!
Glen Larson is also going to produce, and as he famously hated on the reimagined series, I think we can all count on lots of Star Wars ripoffs and Gold LamÃ© capes. Although just for laughs I’d love it if they brought back the old school robots. With all the technological advances that have been made since 1978, it would be hilarious to use dudes in shiny costumes.
And in other BSG news, Amazon has Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series on sale for $175! It’s finally out!
One of my favorite actors is going to be starring in one of my favorite stories! By an awesome director! Huzzah!
Ridley Scott and Leonardo DiCaprio will direct and star in a movie adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, about a utopian future in which state-encouraged orgies and drug-taking are the norm. Also, children are born and raised in hatcheries and conditioning centers, so you’ll never find a crying baby in your movie theater or airplane. DiCaprio will likely play Bernard, the guy who tries to screw things up for everybody.
