Entertainment Lasso – Scary Stuff
October 31, 2009 in Cinema
Using an even older picture than Nikki Finke’s, here is the very biased, incomplete, selective Wordsmoker Entertainment Lasso. While it’s not fiction, it’s still scary.
Roundup sounded too complete.
Hugh Jackman will not be hosting the Oscars this year as there has been an epidemic of “Jazz Hands” amongst tween Wolverine fans.
At the Doha/Tribeca Film Festival, Mira Nair said “If we don’t make our own stories, nobody else will,” about Amelia. This quote is totally taken out of context but is ridiculous even in context.
I so cannot wait for Kenneth Branagh’s Thor.
“ZOMG! Roger Corman is so cool!” said a bunch of 30-something guys.
Ayn Rand is back to kick collectivist ass….
And the Thing You May Have Missed:
Lars von Trier, director of such unwatchable films such as Manderlay, Dogville, and his latest, Antichrist, as well as the really sort of great Breaking the Waves, was reminded how he responded to a journalist defending his portrayal of slavery 70 years after the American Civil War in Manderlay saying,“We will never see a black president, yet they are all over TV… so what good does that do? It only sounds politically correct, but it’s not a reality.” When reminded of this statement today, he said “Well, my perspective on that has changed a bit. President Obama seems very authentic… I wonder if there’s a white man inside of him.”
I did make up the Jazz Hands.
