Conspiracy movie to Conspiracy reality: A day in the life of…(4/17)

Posted by goldwriting on April 17, 2008

1 – The upcoming X-Files sequel has now received its new moniker: X-Files: I Want to Believe. Not bad actually, much better than the one I thought of: X-Files: Boogedy Booegdy. [via Film School Rejects]

2 – One of the best things about comic books being made into movies is the release of movie generated action figures. Here is some pics of the new figures from The Watchmen. Not really sure how I feel about the Nightowl one, but Rorschach is going on my shelf right next to my sweet collection of Jeff Goldblum figurines. [via Film School Rejects]

3 – I’m a big fan of David Bowie, but almost never as much as when he was rocking the space-age persona of Ziggy Stardust. Now Bowie is set to release one of the most memorable live performances from Santa Monica via 1972. Let’s get the Spiders from Mars together, it’s about to get galactic! [via Starpulse]

4 – Continuing with the theme of things I am a big fan of, Stephen King has decided to make a totally separate site only about The Dark Tower series. The culmination of fact and fiction in one story is the backbone to King’s entire career, even though it is still going, and anyone who hasn’t experienced it should begin right away. Admittedly, The Gunslinger, the first book in the series, is a little tough to get into, but push on and you shall be rewarded, sai Gunslinger, for the journey is one of the most important you shall ever take.

5 – I’m fairly sure this video speaks for the majority of the nation. [via Defamer via YouTube]

6 – What does Jon see in that second frame? Why does it scare me so much???. [via Garfield Minus Garfield]

7 – We’ve seen Snake Eyes, now here’s Scarlett from the upcoming G.I.Joe live action movie. I’m feeling a little better about this every day. [via ComingSoon via JoBlo]

8 – Turing 18 years old can be a great time for anyone, but for Emma Watson it holds an even bigger banner in her life. She now has control over the $20 million dollars she has made in the first five Harry Potter films. Yep, color me envious. [via Perez]

9 – If Hitler’s speeches were actually like this, I’m fairly sure he would have had more of the world on his side, or at least a contingent in South Central. [via GorillaMask via SpikedHumor]

10 – Errol Morris, the master documentary filmmaker behind The Fog of War and Thin Blue Line, is back with the world’s first “non-fiction horror movie”, Standard Operating Procedure (which arguably would be a fantastic title for any horror movie). His new doc details case by case and line by line the treatment of the prisoners in Abu Ghraib, so be prepared to gain a little more distaste for those in power right now. Evidently civil liberties and humanitarian rights are only things that randomly popped up in their Alpha-Bits. [via JoshSpear]

Daily Musings 3/13

Posted by goldwriting on March 13, 2008

1 – I’m buying one of these for my bathroom. Then I’m going to throw a big party when I hit 80 o’clock. [via Josh Spear]

2 – Are we really ready for 9021-1? It’s being reported that the CW network and the minds behind Veronica Mars are planning to rehash the classic Beverly Hills mega-drama 90210 and launch it as a spin off. If they can generate even half the tabloid buzz and future celebrity meltdowns as the first one, I think we would have a true hit on our hands. [via Perez Hilton]

3 – I heard this tape floating around detailing parts of a hate filled speech given by Sally Kern, a state representative from Oklahoma, but I didn’t really want to post it up here and give her even more airtime. Now I can’t avoid it since Ellen decided to go on the comedy attack yesterday, so enjoy this and remember, never piss off intelligent comedians. [via Perez Hilton]

4 – It looks like it is teetering on the truth to say the final Harry Potter movie will be split into two separate films, slated for release in 2010 and 2011. By that point we can start to expect the deluge of spin-off films, like Fred and George’s Wild Ride to Burma, Muggle Pie 7: Hogwarts New Class, and the action packed quidditch flick, Seek It Like Beckham. [via Starpulse] (even while writing this entry it was made official by the President of Warner Brothers! The movie split, not my planned spin-offs)

5 – While the movie itself might be embroiled in some creative quagmires, the trailer has finally arrived for the new Incredible Hulk starring Edward Norton as our not-so-jolly green giant. It looks pretty good in my opinion. Thoughts? Fears?

6 – I think we are all glad to see Britney getting her sh*t back together, but the record company behind her is still trying to figure out how to salvage anything from her new album, Blackout. The first video shot for it was laughably horrendous, so this time with the new single Break the Ice they decided to do the whole thing anime style, skip using Britney all together. The animation isn’t bad, but you can feel the concept was rushed because it is a blatant rip-off of The Matrix. If you want to see for yourself, head through this link and type in “danger” and “victory” in the two password boxes at the bottom of the page. Honestly, I think I was more excited by the Tron inspired Honda Civic ad that played before the video. [via Defamer]

7 – Sexman is back for his review of 10,000 BC. I honestly don’t know why I continue to write my own reviews, I will never reach this level of sophistication and depth. I bow to you, Sexman. [via FilmDrunk]

8 – Is it just me or in this new full length trailer for Speed Racer did they show his first grade teacher saying “Speed Racer, slow down!” while he was in class. His real name is Speed Racer? And somehow they are acting shocked that later in life he can only seem to think of one thing? Talk about paving your kids road for him. Might as well name him Youngest Senator or States Best Juggler. As for the trailer itself, please for the love of God do not go to this film on LSD, you’ll never make it out alive. [via FilmDrunk]

9 – Another Muppet movie? The sun just got a little brighter today. 🙂  [via ComingSoon]

10 – This was bound to happen with the comfort on anonymity online. Welcome over burdened souls to Online Confessionals. [via CNN]
