hey guess what? i like movies.

So I don't know what to "blog" about. But I like movies and need to talk to someone about exciting new stuff i read or see. So this is now a blog mainly about movies. Sorry. Not that there wasn't anything to become attached to about my old blogging content. i could count the blog entries i've made on one hand, and i'm sure at least 2 of them were about movies anyway.

So yeah.

Here are some images from the new stop-motion animated Wes Anderson movie THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX (based on the book by Roald Dahl). George Clooney is the voice of the fox. I don't know what to think. It comes out in October.

They're making the Dr. Seuss book THE LORAX, into a movie. It's being written and directed by some guys who worked on ICE AGE, HORTON HEAR'S A WHO, some BLINK 182 music video, and a new movie, which looks maybe good, called DESPICABLE ME. I love THE LORAX cartoon and have always wanted to see a live action version, but obviously it would be terrible like THE GRINCH and THE CAT IN THE HAT. The thing is, THE LORAX is a fucking sad negative story. So unless they change absolutely everything, it could still be good.

Also here's 3 trailers for movies i'm excited about.

The Informant
Coco Before Chanel

P.S. If you're excited about Spike Jonze's WHERE THE WILD THING ARE movie, here is a featurette i found where they talk to Maurice Sendak about working with Spike Jonze and how this movie's gonna be awesome.

Francis Ford Coppola hasn't written an origional screenplay and directed it since 1974's The Conversation starring Gene Hackmen, a movie he made between The Godfather and The Godfather II. I just watched The Conversation for the first time this year and it instantly became my favorite of all his films.

Now he's written and directed Tetro, a new movie starring Vincent Gallo. Vincent, Moterfucking, Gallo! It comes out this June. Here's the trailer.

The Newest Terminator Salvation Trailer:

What is with super dramatic Nine Inch Nails or Smashing Pumpkins music being put into action movie trailers these days. I have to admit I'm a total sucker for it. I wouldn't put money on this new Terminator movie being amazing or anything, but after this new awesome trailer and it's music, i've gone from very curious to excited.

Other Examples of Trailers I'm tricked into loving:

Embarrassing songs I've been listening to and rotting my brain:
1. Blur - Girls and Boys
2. Blonde Redhead - 23
3. Gorillaz - Dirty Harry
4. The Strokes - The Modern Age
5. Babyshambles - Fuck forever
6. Louis XIV - Guilt By Association
7. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - The Skin On My Yellow Country Teeth
8. MGMT - Kids
I rediscovered Vice Versa the other day. I bought it for something like 70 cents at Unique. If you never saw it, it's one of those freaky friday, dad and son switch bodies type of movie. It came out the same year as Big. It's one of those movies I rented a hundred times with my brother when I was a kid, but maybe enjoy more now after recognizing how creepy it is for a little kid to be admiring his dad's penis size and making out with his dad's girlfriend and crap.

Fred Savage is like drinking martinis and plays drums in a rock band and i feel like he calls someone a bitch at some point too. And he was like 8 years old or something.  This was before The Wonder Years also. Now I can only think of him as the mole from Austin Powers.

Used CDs I'm searching for, but can't find:

1. Paul McCartney - Wildlife
This review on says "Rich, successful, happily married, and absurdly talented, Paul McCartney had nothing to do, so he recorded Wild Life." It's his first album with Wings and it came out in 1971 right after Ram, which sounds just as bloated and insane. This is the only footage I can find of Paul McCartney from this era.

2. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Acme
I don't really know if I'll like the rest of this album other than "talk about the blues", but it'll probably grow on my me over the next few months if I can just find a copy of it that isn't $16.99 or something.  The "Talk about the blues" music video is my number one inspiration at this point of my life.  Winona Ryder, Giovanni Ribisi, John C. Reilly.
