My video teacher at Pratt showed us this film, they made it for about $25,000, it’s so awesome!

The aesthetics and music are what I find to be the most striking, it’s visually stunning.

I’ve set up a Facebook page for my blog, mainly out of boredom-ness, but also so you can receive updates there instead of from Twitter… because I fucking find Twitter to be one of the most useless websites out there.

Hatez this, Lovez that

One of my more favorite websites to check out once in a while is Allfacebook.com, providing the latest information on technological and social advancements on Facebook. One unfortunate group the site brought to my attention was that there is a growing number of members in the Facebook community calling for the death of President Obama. MORE THAN A MILLION. I refuse to put the link to the page on my blog, obviously, because I don’t want to provide them with any attention. However, there is a group growing close to a million saying that the group should be deleted (click here to join). Facebook strongly supports freedom of speech, but I think it’s a little whack when someone’s calling for the death of a living person… let alone our President.

Fucking hatez it.

FINALLY the tabloids and shitty gossip websites have presented the internet with production photos of HBO’s soon-to-be 5 hour mini-series of Mildred Pierce. One thing that greatly confuses me is the time period in which the story takes place. In the movie (c. 1945) everything coincided with the 1940’s style… but the mini-series presents styles even out dated for the film.  Websites are saying it’s taking place during the Great Depression, which makes sense when it comes to the garments Kate Winslet is wearing and the cars filling the streets on New York City. There seem to be quite a few different things about the mini-series than the movie staring film legend, Joan Crawford (for instance the setting, time period, and length of the film). I have a feeling this mini-series might touch upon the story of Mildred Pierce a little more accurately than the film, as films back in the 1940’s were so romantically driven.

Anyways, lovez it and can’t wait to see it when it’s released.

RIP Titanic

well, I am a disrespectful idiot, HOW COULD I FORGET THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC? If you know me, you know I am a Titanic OBSESSED FREAK, so I’m sorry Titanic, please accept my apology.

In two years James Cameron will be re-releasing 1997’s smash hit, Titanic, to the public as it’s been completely digitally remastered (even though it was only made 12 years ago) and will be shown in IMAX 3D (probably to make Cameron another few billion). As you probably know… I hate 3D… but Titanic in 3D? I’m all over that shit. Titanic came out when I was in 3rd grade, I was almost nine when I first saw it… I dragged my family to see the film FOUR TIMES and every time was better than the last. I had become a Titanic fanatic two years before the film had come out (I know, I’m a trendsetter, even at seven), my obsession sprouted from when my I learned that my Great Great Grandmother almost boarded the Lusitania back in 1915 (the Titanic’s lame sister ship), which sank when a German torpedo hit the side of the ship, which led to my learning of the Titanic and ever since then I have purchased the majority of films, board games, and books about the Titanic (and the board game is amazing, btw, ask my friend Cathy).

Tim Burton heartz remakes

In Film on 04/12/2010 at 9:46 pm

Where creativity doesn’t exist right now… is in Hollywood. Remakes are at their height as digital technology is lending itself to newer possibilities that ‘enhance’ their re-story telling quality. As everyone knows Disney has acquired filmmaker Tim Burton to remake their classic Alice in Wonderland, which I absolutely hated (it was a stupid 3D cash cow), but recently he’s been hired to remake another classic… Sleeping Beauty. Sleeping Beauty is my favorite Disney movie… to see this animated film cheaply re-made as to simply drag in $100 million or so in for Disney would be an absolute shame and a slap in the face for the classic. However, what is interesting is that it’s going to be more focused on the life and evil doings of Maleficent, not the pure and beautiful Princess Aurora.

I appreciate what Tim Burton is doing, but I don’t really care for his films, he’s aesthetic is almost a character of it’s own that absorbs the spotlight from any actor or actress starring in his film, as it’s mostly what I pay attention to throughout the film. So far, all I know is that Angelina Jolie is supposed to star as the evil Maleficent, which could possibly be good, but I’m not going to hold my breath. And how much do you want to bet that Johnny Depp will be playing Princess Aurora?

HBO’s Mildred Pierce

Finally! More information on HBO’s five hour mini-series Mildred Pierce! According to seattlepi.com production will begin in April staring Kate Winslet who is replacing mah fav. classic Hollywood actress, Joan Crawford, which was Crawford’s most iconic role as a housewife that makes good. Co-staring with Crawford is Thirteen’s Evan Rachel Wood to play Veda Pierce (Winslet’s daughter) and Guy Pearce as Monty Beragon. So far, this movie sounds fantastic, I really think they’re selecting cast members that will do this class 1940’s film noir picture justice.
