Watched Argo last night. Interesting. Sort of a poor man's Zero Dark Thirty, and a little self-obsessed with nostalgia.

Watched Argo last night and absolutely loved it though I agree with both your points.

Watching Deadfall now, which is exactly like every other movie with this description:

Quote
In the wintry countryside near Canada, smooth-talking heist man Addison (Eric Bana) and his femme fatale sister Liza (Olivia Wilde) are on the run with a bag full of cash from a c asino job. With a deadly blizzard swirling around them, they split up to make a desperate dash for the border. Meanwhile, troubled boxer Jay (Charlie Hunnam) has just been released from prison and is heading home to spend Thanksgiving with his mother (Sissy Spacek) and retired sheriff father (Kris Kristofferson). A twist of fate sets them all on a collision course, hurtling this icy thriller to a shocking climax.

So, basically, it's one of those "stare into Olivia Wilde's eyes" movies.

Also, apparently, written by Olivia Wilde's eyes, too, because it has things like Eric Bana biting a guy through the sleeve of his heavy duty winter moccasin to get the upper hand in a fight. Which is really stupid like so --

Oh, excuse me. Olivia Wilde scene.

Groundhog Day!

So time to repost this:

http://whatculture.com/film/just-how-many-days-does-bill-murray-really-spend-stuck-reliving-groundhog-day.php

A painstaking analysis of how many times Bill Murray repeated Groundhog Day. The estimate comes in at just under 34 years. Harold Ramis has said it was 10 years but, when those MIT kids a while back figured it to be 9 years, Ramis went back on his estimate and said 10 years wouldn't be enough time to learn all the things Bill Murray did. So I buy the link above more than any other... And really love the idea that he was trapped for 34 years. Jesus...

The Lone Ranger Super Bowl spot. Those Pirates of the Caribbean movies are so darn fun, I can't imagine I'll miss this.

I found it horrifying. How dare they shit all over the Lone Ranger.

Of course...it's probably the only way to remake it for modern offices. But, then we get into the argument of why remake it?

Which is a redundant argument because the answer is always cash.

So...Kickstarter brought Veronica Mars back from the dead, raising two million in a day. Geekdom is abuzz with how this is the new way to revive a series...though Whedon has already said he won't even think about touching Firefly again for another two years.

Either way...fans crowd-sourcing the revival of a show, and producing some sort of mandate, is interesting, yes? I think Veronica Mars is operating under a deal where if they raise X then Warner or whoever will respond and handle distro/marketing. So, essentially, you all make the movie/show and we'll pick it up.

This feels more exciting than the pipe dream (and ultimate sad failure) of the Netflix 2.0 revolution...

The internet is losing it's proverbial shit over the trailer for Ender's Game. I think it looks like ass. Is it me or them?

It is not beautiful.

I'm excited enough to see the story play out on the big screen that it could look like ass and I wouldn't care.

I can't even imagine how they could do Ender's Game on film. I'll go just to see that. Is it possible? (No.)

I'm a Sofia Coppola nerd, so the Missus and I just got back from a screening of her latest The Bling Ring.


It's a portrait of vapidity and self indulgence in our celeb obsessed culture. RC says check it out.

I was hoping it was a hip hop spin-off of The Ring.

If you are reading this in New York City, better stock up on bottled water and chain saws, because a Sharknado is coming. Syfy announced today that after the success of Sharknado, they have begun developing Sharknado 2 for 2014. They haven't announced whether it will be a prequel or a sequel, but there will definitely be a shark-filled tornado. Syfy knows a movie like this needs a perfect subtitle, so they are asking the fans for one. Just tweet @SyfyMovies using #Sharknado and you can name the movie. Here are a few to get your mind going: 2 Shark 2 Nado, Sharknado 2: SharkNATO, Sharknados Take Manhattan, Sharknado 2: Electric BoogaSharknado, Sharknado 2: Havana Sharknados, Sharknado 2: This Time It's Persharknal, I Still Know What You Did Last Sharknado.
