Check out this humerous look at the deleted scenes of the Star Wars Trilogy. Wery spiffy. Especially cool is the Wampa ice creature subplot that was dropped from Empire. A more comprehensive source for the deleted scenes from the Trilogy can be found here. I’m still looking for the scene in The Phantom Menace where R2 has a conspicuous”Intel Inside” sticker showing…
Lets go Flyers! Hockey season doth rock, and the Flyers won their season opener 6-3. Young Justin Williams looked mighty impressive, but rookies have a way of starting strong and dropping off fast. The Flyers themselves looked ok, but they were still making a bunch of stupid mistakes that could have cost them the game. I predict that they will get clobbered by Boston on Saturday (by a score of 5-1).
Tallmania hath been e-quilled by Kaedrin regular and court advisor, grenville! Go check out the E-Quill Web Toolbar (IE 5+ for PC only) and comment the hell out of any website. Its a tremendously usefull tool for constructive criticism or commentary and I’d welcome any comments on Kaedrin (or whatever you want!) I found out about E-Quill from Kottke.org and he’s recently posted a bunch of his visitor’s comments.
This is an interesting parody of Amazon.com aimed towards Zombies who would like to choose from a wide array of brains to eat “because some brains are just naturally better, juicier, and formerly smarter than others.” Some people have too much time on their hands. Now, if you’ll excuse me, Oprah’s brain just arrived in the mail. Mmmm, celebrity brain… ahhhgglaaaahhhggg…
Ok, so RedRival is still in the process of “upgrading”, but I’m going to start posting stuff anyway.
Salon recently ran an interesting article about the new “Lord of the Rings” Trilogy that is presently in production. I am currently reading The Fellowship of the Ring, which is the first book of the trilogy. When I first heard that Peter Jackson would be directing, I was a bit suprised. This is such a high profile film that I would have expected a “safer” director to be chosen. While Jackson is best known for his mainstream work (The Frighteners and Heavenly Creatures, neither of which did blockbuster business), he was also known as a bit of a B-film maker, with some real disgusting movies under his belt (Meet the Feebles, Bad Taste).
Also suprising is that all three films are being filmed at the same time. Generally, the first film is made and released, and, if it does well, the next two are put into production (the scream trilogy and the matrix trilogy are two recent examples). To have all three put into production at once, without a proven box office draw, is unprecidented.
It wasn’t too long ago when I witnessed the atrocity that is “Wild Wild West”. Quite possibly one of the worst movies I have ever seen; I actually contemplated writing a review for it, but I found that I was less motivated than a neutered dog when it came time to actually research it. But now I’ve found the ultimate reference for bad movies (“Ripping Hollywood the New Ass it Deserves”), and they’ve actually wasted their time to review all the bad movies so that you don’t have to watch them, including the Wild Wild Worst movie I have ever seen. Mighty selfless of them, I must say.
