  • So Movie Madness didn't have any copies of FotR on Blu-ray left, but I did pick up Two Towers and Return of the King, and the Bakshi 'toon. #
  • We're walking down to @whiffies for some post-bikeride sweets! Then it's time for some HD Tolkien action. #
  • I know this isn't saying anything profound, but what if the gender roles were swapped in last nights SNL skit with Tina Fey and the kid? #

  • So the picture in this new Blu-ray is much brighter, more colorful. I'm switching back and forth between this and the old DVD. #
  • There do seem to be a lot of little white specks in the picture. Dust? Definitely not perfect. #ralphbakshilordoftherings #
  • @RevGWCSean how many times have you seen it now? in reply to RevGWCSean #
  • I think what's really lacking in the Bakshi Lord of the Rings is the sense of geography that Peter Jackson captured with New Zealand. #
  • Middle Earth was clearly defined in Jacksons Trilogy, whereas in Bakshi's it feels disconnected, and vague. #
  • @FatboyRoberts yes! The score is so much fun, and the voice casting is a lot of fun. Some of the same cast from the BBC Radio production. in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • @RevGWCSean did you see it in IMAX 3D? I still haven't seen it, but I hear that's the way to go. in reply to RevGWCSean #

  • @MattGoldberg no problem, I just listened to the Clash of the Titans episode today, it was a lot of fun. Will definitely continue listening. in reply to MattGoldberg #
  • @FatboyRoberts I think the EE has some character moments for Smeagol/Gollum that make it better for me. in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • @FatboyRoberts I guess if I had to choose between the two in a "which would I want to see in the theater again" I'd pick the theatricals… in reply to FatboyRoberts #

  • I know that advertising keeps many sites afloat, but completely taking over a screen, before letting me access a page? That is too much. #
  • @rejects thats absolutely not true. It keeps the sites that rely on advertising as a source of revenue afloat. in reply to rejects #
  • @rejects they pay for their sites with money made from their day jobs, because they just love producing content so much, they'll pay for it. in reply to rejects #
  • @rejects or they have their sites hosted on WordPress.com or Blogspot sites, and again, write for the love of it. in reply to rejects #
  • @willschiff @rejects I know we all want to make money off of this endeavor somehow, but don't let that get in the way. #
  • I'm mostly complaining about a very specific type of ad. One that completely takes over the entire screen, before allowing me to progress. #

  • Is there anyone out there that can explain how awesome Scott Pilgrim is, without telling me to read the comics? Use your words, people. #
  • @Vactor you know, I like the idea that he's channeling Adam West much more than Shatner. I'm glad you pointed that out. in reply to Vactor #
  • Hmmm the common thread amongst the fans seems to be the fact that it references video games? Apparently that's where I'm not getting it. #
  • Folks, the thing is, I really want to like Scott Pilgrim. I feel like I'm missing some key that will unlock it's awesomeness for me. But… #
  • @Devindra honestly, reading all of these reactions, I feel like I have no soul, in voicing my opinion. I want you all to unlock it for me. in reply to Devindra #
  • @EricVespe I get the basics of it, but I don't see what is so revolutionary about it, other than the fact that it's referencing those things in reply to EricVespe #
  • @Devindra isn't that the job of a critic, to unlock the experience for those interested in something new. To intellectually share their love in reply to Devindra #
  • @Vactor I don't think I'm over-analyzing anything at this point. I want the fans to explain it to me, rationally, and intelligently. in reply to Vactor #
  • @Devindra that sounds like a cop out to me. ;) in reply to Devindra #
  • @rejects Agreed, I can't wait to see it again. in reply to rejects #
  • Saying "read the books" is akin to saying "I don't know how to relate this to someone who hasn't read the books." Isn't that your job? #
  • @Devindra thats a good point. Maybe I'll save this conversation for after the film is released. in reply to Devindra #

  • @RadioConelrad it was supposed to be there. Two other dudes were in the same situation, all of us on smartphones confirming the bus schedule in reply to RadioConelrad #
  • Although it's not very much money, I feel so morally opposed to paying for a taxi when a bus will do. #
  • After thinking more about Elektra Luxx, I am not the target audience for that movie. I can't see myself ever renting it, let alone buying it #
  • @fistfulofmedia i know, I'd be ashamed if I made it all the way here without going there. I couldn't look myself in the mirror. in reply to fistfulofmedia #
  • There was a lot of really great ideas thrown around at the Cinema in a Digital Era panel today, about social tech options. #
  • One thing that has been brought up again and again at the various panels: long form narratives are dying, and are archaic. #
  • The idea of a two hour film was never something etched in stone at the beginning of time, it grew out of people spending a night out. #
  • @Marshy00 I'm doing ok with the busses and taxis, but I'm sure if you have a hotel nearby, you'll do just fine in reply to Marshy00 #

  • I don't think it will have the same broad appeal as Amelie, or A Very Long Engagement, but it deserves to be seen by all. #

  • I'm at Hitachi Gtech Theater. http://4sq.com/b9YIJW #
  • I just saw my favorite film of the festival, a short film that in fact brought tears to my eyes: Plastic Bag, by Ramin Bahrani. #
  • Not only is this film expertly captured visually, with an incredible score, it is narrated by none other than Werner Herzog. #
  • Those of you that missed the Futurescapes screening, they are available online, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. #
  • I'm actually still trembling as I type this, outside of the convention center, absorbing what I just saw. #
  • Perhaps it's the loneliness of covering this event by myself that has made me more susceptible, but that film cut straight to my heart. #
  • If you enjoyed the subtle future shown to us in Children of Men, you must watch this series of short films, you will not be sorry. #
  • The website I thought allowed you to watch the Futurescapes shorts is not working, I'll get back with a way for you to see these films. #
  • I need a stiff drink after that screening, before I see anything else. Probably heading to the Paramount after this. #
  • @moiseschiu I enjoyed the twist, but it didn't find it particularly inspirational right off the bat. I enjoyed how it was more cerebral. in reply to moiseschiu #

  • While this bar lured me in with it's evolutionary name, Darwins Pub is pretty lame. #
  • One more thing on Plastic Bag: the film projected on a huge screen, where it fills ones field of vision, dramatically adds to it's impact. #
  • @ErikDavis I'm heading to Elektra Luxx too, after this cheap beer is finished. #SXSW in reply to ErikDavis #

  • Black and white footage of Luke, looking up at the Death Star / Tantive fight in orbit of Tattooine. #
  • Sweet! We get R2D2 subtitles! #
  • Awesome! Blood splatter amidst the rebels vs. stormtroopers! #

  • R2D2 subtitles when shot by the Jawas: "you… … bastards…" #
  • There is some rocking synth music in place of John Williams score. Definitely enhances the mood. #
  • C3PO: "Do you think they'll melt us down?" R2D2: "Well … maybe they need gold…." #

  • Also like a road trip: being excited at the beginning, and then slowly growing more anxious, the longer it takes. I love it. #
  • About to watch a 20th Century Fox film, shot in cinemascope, starring James Mason, about addiction, on Blu-ray. Oh yeah. #

  • @Rudie_Obias there is a link to it in yesterdays shownotes #

  • @pomoxian I'm not sure exactly. I need to watch it again with commentary, I'm not sure how serious I'm supposed to take it. in reply to pomoxian #
  • So we really are watching Cloverfield, immediately following Metropolitan. An interesting pairing, especially the editing similarities. #
  • @adammthos I don't want either. But at least Cloverfield has a believable monster in it. in reply to adammthos #
  • Well, Cloverfield is still a lot of fun, still holds up. Characters are annoying, but the sound and visuals are so much fun. #
  • To continue our night o' movies, we're going to (re)watch Sunshine. Charmaine has never seen it, and I'm always down for sci-fi. #
  • We're supposed to be talking about "upward social mobility" in movies this week on the podcast. I'm thinking about Trading Places ;) #
  • I can't get over how annoyed I am with Metropolitan. Was it supposed to have this effect on me? #
  • I think you forgot the <sarcasm> tag. RT @ms_charmaine: @brokencosmos Ryan, I didn't know you liked sci-fi?!? #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-01-25

  • The Hangover is the most deserved win of the night. #
  • If you think 500 Days of Summer was funnier than The Hangover, you need to get your funny bone checked out. #
  • @steviespin well, then the Hangover wins using that criterion also. in reply to steviespin #
  • Alright, enough of these Golden Globes, time to continue with the LOST re-watch-a-thon, and finish my Che review. #
  • Damn, its so cathartic when Sawyer smashes Pickets head into the fish biscuit button, electrocuting him. #
  • Thinking Inglourious Basterds would win is like voting for Ralph Nader. #
  • @FyodorFish Those sound about right to me. in reply to FyodorFish #
  • Digesting the awards a little bit more, I'd say that Michael Giacchino's Award for Up's score was really the most deserved of the evening. #
  • I can't believe Mac fell for the old Wookie Prisoner Gag. I also swoon everytime Sawyer says that line. #
  • Also, one of the best cameos of Lost is Robin Weigert (Calamity Jane from Deadwood) as Juliet's sister. #
  • I'm so bummed I can't hang out with all you film nerds at Sundance this week. You jerks better be going to SXSW. #
  • I wonder if people will one day think of Season 3 of Lost as it's Empire Strikes Back. #
  • So, what has been your favorite Soderbergh film throughout the years? Which is his most underrated production? (I'm voting for Solaris) #
  • So I finally got to handle a Droid last night. While some of the apps are pretty sweet, I'm still on team iPhone. #
  • Alright, I need some new desktop background images, hivemind, give me your suggestions. #
  • Whatever happened to Isabel, the Sheriff of the Others? She seemed so badass. I don't want her to be dead: http://bit.ly/4ICJD8 #
  • @RadioConelrad that sounds awesome! in reply to RadioConelrad #
  • @DevSatellite333 yeah, she would make a good Romulan. in reply to DevSatellite333 #
  • Alright, this image of the Very Large Array is my new background image for the netbook: http://bit.ly/7MY7Fp #
  • Hey @FoxHomeEnt when can we expect to see Soderbergh's Solaris on Blu-ray? #
  • @DevSatellite333 yeah, you should follow up Contact with a Cosmos marathon! in reply to DevSatellite333 #
  • RT: @TheDrillDown: The Drill Down is with #CoCo ! http://ow.ly/XBCv (we're also with Haiti, Google, Facebook and Roxxy the A.I. sex robot). #
  • RT: @elmayimbe: RT @iesb: I have been personally told by a source close to Guillermo del Toro that it's true Tobey Maguire IS The Hobbit. #

  • @moviegeeks haha, I saw IHOP on that Sundance list and I thought the same thing. in reply to moviegeeks #
  • Just made it through about an hour of Rossellini's Rome Open City. I don't think I'm in the right mood for Italian Neo-Realism Tonight… #
  • I'm going to put that on hold while I watch my first episode of Neon Genesis Evangelion, let's see what all this hoopla is about. #
  • While we're all giving our two cents on a Spider Man reboot, I'll say this, I don't think any of Raimi's Spidey films are all that great. #
  • Sure, Spiderman 2 is a lot of fun at parts, but I never really liked the CG Spidey flying around the city. #
  • However, what I really really don't want, is a back to high school Spiderman movie, they're moving in the wrong direction. #
  • @Devindra I knew I was going to lose some friends with that. in reply to Devindra #
  • Also, I never found any of the Osborne's believable, or their motivations. #
  • @jenyamato Yeah, I'm late to the party. in reply to jenyamato #
  • The only Spiderman I ever really liked was Spiderman and his Amazing Friends. WIth Ice Man and Firestar. and that X-men Episode. #
  • I really liked the episode with Swarm, that super-villain that was made up of bees. #
  • @Vactor are you serious? Magneto and Strykers motivations are absolutely more clear, and more believable that Norman Osborns. in reply to Vactor #
  • @Vactor I would rather watch X3 than Spiderman 1 or 3 any day of the week. in reply to Vactor #
  • When they do this Spiderman reboot, they need to get Kraven the Hunter all up in that. We need a badass villain. #
  • @Vactor Bone is amazing! Are you reading it in color or black and white? in reply to Vactor #
  • @Vactor I've tried rewatching Spiderman 3 a couple of times, and I can't make it all the way through. in reply to Vactor #
  • @Vactor I didn't defend any of the story telling elements, just the technical aspects. in reply to Vactor #
  • @Vactor in case this means anything, I do own all three Spider-Man films, even a 3 disc Target Edition of Spidey 3. in reply to Vactor #
  • Instead of reacting so negatively to my Spider-Man thoughts, why not bring up substantial points of defense? #
  • @Vactor it was to everyone, but sure Justin, go for it, convince me these are amazing cinema. in reply to Vactor #
  • @Vactor they're not Blu-ray discs, you may not want them ;) in reply to Vactor #
  • @FatboyRoberts I think that's still out of the question, really out of the question. in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • Hopefully, in the reboot, we'll get an uber-nerdy Peter Parker who builds his own web shooters. #
  • Will the Spider-Man reboot be in 3D? With webs shooting all up in our faces? #
  • @FatboyRoberts It would be sweet if the Avengers movie could have the Civil War stuff, possibly in a sequel? With Spider-Man and all… in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • @foxtotally hmmm, I think I would want Clancy Brown to voice Thanos. in reply to foxtotally #
  • RT @foxtotally: How's about pooling every Marvel movie character made thus far and doing an Infinity Gauntlet flick? #
  • @foxtotally doesn't Thanos kill off half of the Earth to please Death in Infinity Gauntlet? in reply to foxtotally #
  • How about we get some sweet Valiant movies? Like XO Manowar, Turok, Magnus Robot Fighter, Solaris, Harbinger, Rai, Bloodshot…. #
  • I don't remember, was Kraven ever considered as a villain for the Spider-Man films? Bruce Campbell would have made an awesome Hunter #
  • @rickchung I think they could make it work, a variation of an insane hunter dressed in animal skins. in reply to rickchung #
  • I really think I should have watched this Evangelion show about 15 years ago. I love the concept, but this dialogue is killing me. #
  • @sepinwall can we blame V for Juliet's death? in reply to sepinwall #
  • @Vactor I'm really going to try and rewatch the films for you, but my stack of films I need to write up for the blog is starting to worry me in reply to Vactor #
  • @Vactor once you've finished Bone, be sure to read the Charles Vess illustrated book: Rose. in reply to Vactor #
  • All this talk of Spider-Man got me reminiscing about the whole Marvel 2099 launch. I loved those damned foil-covers. #
  • @Vactor @Matt_Grigsby I loved his retractable finger talons, I used to imagine I had them when I would think about scaling walls. #
  • @foxtotally is that when Doom traveled forward in time? in reply to foxtotally #
  • @foxtotally I think some of my favorite foil covers of olde have to be those Shadowhawk #1's, I know you're a fan. in reply to foxtotally #
  • Alright all you real comic nerds: what was your favorite gimicky comic book cover of the early 90s? #
  • @ElisabethRappe is that when he got his adamantium ripped out? in reply to ElisabethRappe #
  • A couple favorite gimicky covers that come to mind: all the variant covers of Gen 13 and Wetworks, I don't think I ever got them all. #
  • @landon_speak I was a huge Wild C.A.T.s fan too! I used to own this amazing holo-foil poster that I had framed in my room. in reply to landon_speak #
  • One final thought before bed: why are English Muffins essentially inedible when cold, but absolutely delicious when toasted? #
  • @RoboSexual Yeah, thats a good one too! http://bit.ly/832KUQ in reply to RoboSexual #
  • @landon_speak yeah, I thought that cartoon kinda sucked, it didn't capture the awesomeness that were @jimlee00's amazing illustrations. in reply to landon_speak #
  • @landon_speak I actually dressed up as Grifter for Halloween once back in 92 or 93. I made his mask out of a red bandana and a sharpie. in reply to landon_speak #
  • @landon_speak did you read the X-men/WildCATS crossover books? Those were a lot of fun, each with incredible art. in reply to landon_speak #
  • Man, why does Europe get all of my childhood cartoons on DVD? MASK, Dino Riders, Visionaries, I want those! #

  • On the bus, on my way home. #
  • About to watch Book of Eli #
  • @RadioConelrad get off my lawn! in reply to RadioConelrad #
  • Oh man, I can't wait to have a spoilery talk about Book of Eli. I won't spoil it here on Twitter. I'll say this: did KFC sponsor this movie? #
  • @willschiff I didn't love it, but the ending was worthy of Shyamalan. in reply to willschiff #
  • @willschiff having made it to the end of the movie, I now want to see it again. in reply to willschiff #
  • @devincf totally. I could have also done without McDowell's wacky hair. in reply to devincf #
  • I have so many open hold slots at the library, time to dive into the Halliwells guide, to find movies I haven't watched. #
  • @gmanreviews it was the Road, the Postman, Mad Max, Waterworld, with a dash of 300. in reply to gmanreviews #
  • @ElisabethRappe however derivative it was, by the time the ending hit, I suddenly became way more interested, & actually want watch again. in reply to ElisabethRappe #
  • @ElisabethRappe I also want to compare it to a certain Japanese swordsman, without actually naming it, thus spoiling it. in reply to ElisabethRappe #
  • @ElisabethRappe I thought it was going to be more preachy. It was pretty shallow though. I doubt if I see it again, I'll pay full price. in reply to ElisabethRappe #
  • @ElisabethRappe I mostly want to see it again to see where they seed clues towards the twist. in reply to ElisabethRappe #
  • I am such a procrastinator. I have all week to watch this, but I am now finally re-watching Haxan with the commentary. I love this job. #
  • Haxan plays almost like a comedy. #
  • @FyodorFish I'll definitely check it out, I was surprised by how un-offended I was, with all my atheistic ideals. in reply to FyodorFish #
  • @FyodorFish yeah, although that "library" was a little too clean for the world set up. in reply to FyodorFish #
  • Did anyone get a "Children of Men" flashback towards the end of Eli? #
  • @ElisabethRappe @FyodorFish but, maybe wasn't completely *spoiler* throughout the movie, but was going *spoiler* #

  • I know I'm late, but easily the best three shows of the past decade: Lost, Battlestar, and The Wire. Hands down, no contest. #
  • Locke's sweat lodge dream at the beginning of Season 3 is so good. #
  • Interesting JJ Abrams / Lost / Cloverfield connection: Chris Mulkey was Mike at Locke's commune, and the military dude in Cloverfield. #
