    Neil Gaiman's Stardust

    I did a search, and I'm surprised that there isn't a thread. The first trailer is now up: http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/stardust.html Looks good so far... Jason

    Looking for information about "Blood Ties" (Lifetime)

    A friend of mine ran across a commercial for for a TV series called "Blood Ties". It is based on a series of novels by Tanya Huff, basically about Vampires during the reign of Henry VIII. She was wondering if anyone has heard anything about it. Information seems to be scant. The premere is...

    Here is the blog entry by Lefsetz which kinda started things, suggesting that iPod adaptors becomming standard on Ford, GM and Mazda vehciles are the beginning of the end for Sat Rad. http://lefsetz.com/wordpress/index.p...tellite-radio/ and Lee Abrams' response in his blog...

    The Amazing Screw-On Head

    Well, this isn't actually on TV, but Sci-Fi promoed it on their channel, and can be watched on their web site. http://www.scifi.com/amazingscrewonhead/ Unfortunately, I couldn't watch it on Opera. I had to fire up IE to get it to work. Damn Flash player. Anyways, it looks like they are...

    My trip to XM HQ to meet with Lee Abrams

    As some know, I'm very vocal about XM. I've also been very vocal to management about some of their stations. Since the decision to axe Special X, I've been very active in sending E-Mails to the powers that be about problems that I've had with programming. Some have been more successful than...

    Three new XM stations

    http://www.xmradio.com/lineup/ All starting March 1. XM49: Big Tracks - Basically, splitting off Top Tracks at the 80s. Actually, sounds a bit more like the old Sirius channel "Big Rock", which will suit me just fine. XM84: XM Chill - For fans of smooth electronica. I'll be interested...

    False advertising on the "American Movie Musicals" collection

    I guess I should have known better by doing some actual research here before buying, but that's what I get for trusting packaging. I couple of months ago I picked up the "American Movie Musicals" collection ("West Side Story", "Fiddler On The Roof", and "Guys And Dolls") at Costco. Bare...

    Ghibli's next: Gedo Senki (Tales of Earthsea)

    There was a rumor a couple months ago that Miyazaki's next film would be an adaptation of Ursula K. Le Guin's "Earthsea" novels. Looks like it was mostly right. Hayao's son, Goro is directing this effort. Ghibli's site has been updated with an image, which is also the first poster...

    Pride & Prejudice Review

    Surprised there hasn't been a review yet, so I'll post my thoughts. As I'm married to a Jane Austen freak, this film was a no brainer. Not to mention, this is probably her favorite book of hers. Course, this film had tough competition, since she feels the BBC is the best filmed version, and...

    Sky High

    Ok, haven't heard much about this film. AICN posted some pictures from the set a couple of months ago, and now there is a trailer up. Basically, Super Hero High School. (or, PS238, the movie?) Trailer Looks like it could be fun, in a family film sort of way. Too bad the trailer seems to...

    The Oblongs?

    Since we are seeing a lot of Cartoon Network's contents coming to DVD, and a friend was asking me about it, has anyone heard anything about "The Oblongs" coming out on DVD anytime in the future? TVShowsOnDVD doesn't even have a listing for the show... Jason

    Theme ideas: Retro Movies

    I'm looking to do a theme party in the near future, and I'm looking for ideas to fill it out. Basically the theme is "retro movies", meaning that I want a 'modern' (as in, when it was made) film that imitates an older style of filmmaking. For example, "Down With Love", which is made to...

    "Playmakers" not returning.

    ESPN just made an announcement that "Playmakers" will not be back, partially to do with pressure from the NFL. http://espn.go.com/gen/news/2004/0204/1727165.html Now, I never saw the series, but I am curious what people thought of it, and whether or not it was "fair" to the NFL. I know it...

    The "Super Troopers" guys are at it again: Club Dread

    http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox_se...ht/club_dread/ Not quite sure what to think of it yet, since the slasher plot is being taken half seriously from the looks of it, but it does look like there's funny stuff here.... Jason

    New Living Color - Collideoscope

    No one has mentioned it here yet, but Living Color has gotten back together. Last night, I saw that the new album is out, so I picked it up. After one listen, I gotta say that I'm mildly disappointed. It seems to be lacking in energy for the most part, and Corey Glover is doing odd things...

    Jake 2.0

    Thought I'd start a thread since I'm currently watching it. So far, pretty lame. Inconsistant use of his powers. (What, he can't smash down a door, but seems to have great strength otherwise?) And a lot of this seems stock. Gotta have the cute geek girl who's only glasses away from looking...

    Another Ebert rant about the MPAA

    Just got done watching Ebert and Roeper tonight. Towards the end of the segment was a rant against the MPAA about the use of quotes from his reviews. In the promo material for "Whale Rider", they quote Ebert saying that people should take their kids to see this film. The MPAA, apparantly, took...

    ***Official "DOWN WITH LOVE" Review Thread***

    I guess my original review thread is no longer the "official" thread... :angry: Well, here's my review again... It is 1963 New York, and Barbara Novak (Zellweger) has just arrived in New York to take it by storm. She's just wrote the book "Down With Love", a feminist how-to manual on how...

    ***Official "DOWN WITH LOVE" Review Thread***

    Down With Love - Review. I saw a screening tonight. What a silly and wonderful movie. It is 1963 New York, and Barbara Novak (Zellweger) has just arrived in New York to take it by storm. She's just wrote the book "Down With Love", a feminist how-to manual on how to get ahead in the world...

    *** Official "COWBOY BEBOP" Review Thread

    Probably a good place for a review than anyplace else. I saw it on Sunday during the day. Pretty full theater, actually, tho Dupont Circle is a tiny theater. As I kinda thought, it was the dubbed version that was shown, which was fine with me, even if I don't like Ed's actor. Pretty...

    Preferences for "No Grain" DVDs?

    Link Removed Jeffery Wells, in his column today, is talking about the DVD of "In A Lonely Place". In there, he goes on to say that he prefers the look of "Sunset Boulevard", which was released in the same year but on the DVD they removed the film grain, even if "Lonely" may be the more...

    Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner - Misrepresented?

    Interesting article: http://www.prospect.org/webfeatures/...w-j-02-28.html Basically it says that the ending of the movie (which is pacifistic), is very different from the ending of the legend (which ends in much blood and death). It makes for an interesting argument of art vs accuracy...

    I gotta say, one of the best things about seeing Daredevil was discovering this band. I've been listening to their clips on their web site in anticipation of their album coming out on tuesday. I can't wait. It is nice to see a heavy, female fronted band with good vocals to get radio airplay...

    Talk about a stupid idea (MTV Movie House)

    (Moderator: I'm not sure which forum this would be more appropriate for, TV or Movies. Move if nessicary.) Man, just what I need when watching a movie, a big spotlight with some idiot asking me what I think of the movie. http://www.aint-it-cool-news.com/display.cgi?id=13966 Jason
