Study: 87 Percent Of Movies Would Be Better With... →
After watching Keaton’s murky, 2-hour 1988 addiction drama Clean And Sober all the way through last night, I feel qualified to agree wholeheartedly with this Onion article.
My dear young man, don’t take it too hard. Your work is ingenious....– What every critic quibbling about Community sounds like to me.

A Question For People Who Read Sci-Fi Novels
Do Philip K. Dick and William Gibson novels have people waving their hands inside digital hologram computer screens or do the movie adaptations just add these fascinating moments? Also, guess who watched 3/4 of Paycheck before it left Netflix Instant last night?

I haven’t seen last night’s episode, but I almost cried at my desk reading this. Granted, that’s largely because Community is my favorite show since The Simpsons, but finding out the cast and crew were incredibly kind to a character actor who played a key role in two seminal films of my early adolescence (Sneakers and True Stories, whut whut) is just…oh, you’d think I...

Electric Six song of the week.
BAMcinématek: De Palma Suspense →
BAM is showing every classic Brian DePalma thriller, something I’d normally be ecstatic about because a) I really want to make Leila see one of my favorite DePalma movies - she already likes Carrie! - and b) Leila is incapable of attentively home-viewing any 20th century movie she hasn’t already seen unless it involves teenagers. However, forces have conspired so that one if not both...
“I’m so, like, sick of movies and shit,” Smith...
From the Kevin Smith interview in the LA Weekly. It’s like Bill Hicks’ bit about the kid who quits the soccer team in drug PSAs. Pot didn’t make Kevin Smith quit directing, he just smoked it, looked at his directing career and said “You know what, I really suck at this!” The article is way more even handed that my zing and well worth reading if you’ve spent any...
Happy to report that Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant’s episode of Life After Film School is on Hulu. The show, on the Fox Movie Channel, is ostensibly meant to hype one of the monolith’s properties (in this case a Night At The Museum sequel), but Lennon and Garant drop serious comedy writing wisdom throughout, big-upping improv, talking about how your great Herbie script becomes Herbie:...
Jaden Smith & Will Smith to Star in Shyamalan... →
M. Night is getting Will Smith dollars to make a sci-fi epic about a boy who has to save his dad when their spaceship crashes on our abandoned planet IN THE YEAR 3000. Seriously! I’d almost be surprised the family Smith would make a film with M. Night in 2012, but this plot is TOTALLY Will’s thing (plus M. Night has yet to flop commercially with a big star, just Paul Giammati). All of...
27. Neil Young- Greendale 28. t.A.T.u.- 200 km/h In The Wrong Lane 29....– I just revisited at my ballot for Stylus’ Top 50 Albums: 2000-2005 and decided that I’m going to make a new one, since I know at least 8 of these albums wouldn’t make my top 100 now, including the timeless debut by that dynamic duo above. Will Good Charlotte still sit pretty at #2...
