I Am Link

--- Mood For Cutting - Apparently Michel Gondry's new movie Mood Indigo, which stars Romain Duris (swoon) and Audrey tatou, is getting totally re-edited for release outside of France; nearly forty minutes is being cut, and it's all being shuffled all over the place. Not sure if this is Gondry's own doing or someone else's; I don't think reviews have been all that good, so maybe Gondry wanted to work on it himself?

--- Slash Dance - What an utter delight this list of the thirteen most awesomely terrible dance scenes from horror movies is. Thanks, Chiller! So much joy therein. this reminds me of how I've always wished that I had some musical talent because I want to form a band that only covers shitty songs from 80s slasher movies. There are so many (original songs on soundtracks and slasher movies were both hottest at the same time) and they're all so ridiculous.

--- Harder Things - As for actually good music, NPR is streaming all of Neko Case's new album! I porbably won't have a chance to listen to it so you guys tell me how it is, mkay? 

--- Gregg of the Galaxy - Back to bad slasher music though (in a roundabout sort of way) there's a great bad song in the terrific slasher movie Just Before Dawn, and one of the stars of that movie, the actor Gregg Henry, has just joined Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. It must mean something! Or not. Probably not.But I do wonder - will this mean that Gregg Henry and Clark Gregg will share the screen at some point? Mind blown.

--- Friends Til The End - There was a great piece in the Times this weekend (thx Mac) wherein Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright recounted how they came to know each other, and give some great little nuggets about their new delightful movie The World's End, out this upcoming weekend! (And which I reviewed right here.)

--- Fifty From Thirteen - My pal Joe Reid is helping out Nick Davis on rounding up "The Fifties," which is their name for their favorites of what they've seen so far this year, now that they've each seen 50 movies. Here's their take on the Supporting Actors of the year so far, and here's their take on the Supporting Actresses. More to come!

--- And finally, there's not really much to see in these three new shots from Prisoners... if you don't count Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal as "much to see" all on their own, of course, which is crazy talk. Crazy talk!
