I Am Link

--- Eli, Eli, Lema Sabachthani? - The best horror film of 2008, and the 2nd best movie of the year (so says me) Let the Right One In, is out on DVD March 10th, and BD has a deleted scene from the movie. What new wacky hijinks are Oskar up to now? Have I mentioned often enough that you need to see this movie? You really need to see this movie.

--- Dushku Clout - Apparantly it's a real thing! According to DH Eliza is using her "clout" to actually for reals get that Robert Mapplethorpe movie starring her gay brother made. Huh.

--- Mars & The Nothing - Two annoying bits of remake news today - they're going to remake Total Recall ("Twooooo weeeks! Twooooo weeeeks!") and they're going to remake The Neverending Story. Blurgh squared.

--- Hot Topic of the Day - Apparently everybody's ruminating on the question "Where are the lead female roles in Pixar movies?" today. This post at Cinematical does a good job of pin-pointing the ones that exist, but there's certainly a real disparity, and it is something I hadn't given a whole lot of any thought to. There have been lead-ish female roles - EVE and Helen (Incredibles ma) come to mind - but basically every single one of their movies has has a male main main character.

--- Bloody Strode - The first picture from Rob Zombie's second stab (hardy har) at the Halloween series is over at STYD. Don't expect a lot of coverage of this film from me, I don't think. Still, maybe he can fix what's broken...? Yeah. Whatever. Maybe he'll at least have the good sense to still melt a nurse in a hot tub.

--- And finally, can somebody pay to send me to Toronto for a month starting mid-March? Edgar Wright, who's up there filming Scott Pilgrim, is programming several weeks of double-features at a local cinematheque up there, and it looks as kick-ass as kick-ass gets.

My inner 11 year old just died a little bit.

I am for sure hitting the Wright Stuff Kung-Fu double bill. Drunken Master 2 on the big screen! I hope they're not projecting DVDs.

Don't miss your chance to see "The Story of Ricky/Ricky O". It is a masterpiece of WTF! I'd be going to the Wright films too if I didn't already own copies of almost all of them.

I want to see The Story of Ricky quite badly, but it's an hour and a half away and there would be a good chance I'd have to skip the end to catch the bus. Boo hoo.

Maybe the rape of Halloween 2, a film a like quite a bit despite its flaws, will at least prompt a proper DVD release of the original...maybe even blu ray!

@ JA, you can crash on my couch if someone pays up for your trip, since it's for such a good cause.

@ Steven, I know for a fact that they are NOT screening dvds. I hope to be there for most of the screenings!
