RESULTS FOR THE "SUGGEST A SHOW" MEME ARE UP HERE. TAKE A LOOK. IT IS MADNESS.


Just started White Collar and it's pretty fun. I think I'm going to be applauding nearly all the tricks Neal pulls. It was also nice to see that Diahann Carroll (who plays the woman who owns the nice house) still has that voice and elegance.
I'm also up to episode 6 of Community. My brother also watches some scenes over my shoulder, hee. Seriously, colleges will put your face in the most random places - in my experience, I'm on one of the websites, and my friend ended up with an embarassingly-angled (no not that way) picture on a public banner. -facepalm-

This is is the best compilation of upcoming features in 2010. It's so big that parts 10 and 11 aren't up yet. (Part 9 is linked in a sidebar under "recent.") They give some industry thought to both quality and box office, and try to include things outside Hollywood mainstream and Oscar bait.

It starts here.

The films on that list I'm looking forward to, with reasons:

13
I've blogged about this two or three times here, probably because it's a remake of 13 Tzameti, a film that even some posters spoil so if you're into existential minimalist thriller/suspense things WATCH IT WITHOUT LOOKING AT POSTERS OR THE SYNOPSIS THEY MIGHT GIVE IT AWAY ARGH.

This is all I feel I can show:



They'd have to take a different approach for the remake though, since it's a Hollywood release and the internet spoils everything.

Found out today that Sam Riley and not 50 Cent (who does have a small role) plays the main character.



He looks a lot like the original lead (the director's kid brother), doesn't he?

and look at the rest of the cast: Jason Statham, Alexander Skarsgård, Mickey Rourke, Ray Winstone
I wonder if they'll play versions of the original characters...oh shoot major drama potential

the other films I'm interested in, with less blabbering about:

44 Inch Chest: one-room gangster drama. John Hurt, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Tom Wilkinson.
The A-Team: for Sharlto
The American: interesting story, potentially different tone
The Beaver: for crazy and Yelchin
Brighton Rock: good cast, interesting story. YAY MORE QUALITY GANGSTER MOVIES
Cemetery Junction: Gervais + Merchant writing together again! and the promo pic looks like this, plus Matthew Goode and Ralph Fiennes.
The Conspirator: "Mary Surratt is the lone female charged as a co-conspirator in the assassination trial of Abraham Lincoln. As the whole nation turns against her, she is forced to rely on her reluctant lawyer to uncover the truth and save her life." dude, I'm sold. Also lol James McAvoy in period beard.
Happy Tears: different story, and Parker Posey!
Harry Brown: WHOA IS MICHAEL CAINE GONNA BEAT UP SOME DUDES?
Hereafter: Clint Eastwood doing transcontinental paranormal. Might be good. Only found out about it (and this article!) through looking for the meme for Mylène Jampanoï, who has one of the prettiest names ever.
Slightly interested in Inception and Iron Man 2. Probably see the latter in theaters because my family enjoyed the first.
It's a Wonderful Afterlife: British South Asian marriage comedy with a murderer twist. ooh
KICK-ASS: THE MOVIE I'M MOST EXCITED ABOUT. MY BROTHER SAYS I'M HIT GIRL, SANS SWEARING. NEED TO READ THE COMICS
Never Let Me Go: KAZUO ISHIGUROOOOO ON SCREEN. argh I keep on borrowing The Remains of the Day to watch but never get around to it.
PAUL: Pegg + Frost.
Perrier's Bounty: Cillian Murphy, Jim Broadbent, and Brendan Gleeson in an Irish dark gangster comedy.
Red Riding Trilogy three different directors TV movies recurring characters multi-layered corruption serial killer. cool.
Salt: haha like it or not my mother is dragging us to this for Angelina Jolie
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: the comics are fun. While I'm not sold on Cera as Scott, EDGAR WRIGHT IS DIRECTING.
Shanghai: story seems whatever but JOHN CUSACK + GONG LI and surprise Jeffrey Dean Morgan what
Splice sounds cool.
...editors coming in and cutting back on a lot of the harder-edged elements for the American theatrical release...
lol we Americans can't handle a Canadian hard edge

I'll link in a new post when parts 10 and 11 are done.

- - -
I bring you: The Man Who Talks in Anagrams.



finally, epic Jason Statham fake death post with Suri Cruise, David Copperfield controlling a robot shark, and much more.
I was up until 5 AM laughing at that thing. Yes, I am horrible. But it brought a Disco Poo gif into my life, so it's all good.
