Rabid Fandom, 'GoTs' AutoTune, Reboots, Spoilers, + Trailers

This is my favorite 'Game of Thrones' autotune from @musicalscience, appropriately titled, 'The Dragon's Daughter.' It has all of your favorite characters singing their little hearts out. Yay. It actually has a cool little beat to it.

'THX-1138' Review

'THX-1138' is the third film in the Blind Spot Series with TheMatinee.Ca. You can see my Blind Spot movies list in the right hand side bar. Blind Spots are films that I've never seen before and are posted on the last Tuesday of the month. The first film on my list was 'Quest for Fire,' the second blind spot was 'Attack of the 50'-Foot Woman.' I accidentally skipped 'Fahrenheit 451' (1966). So 'Fahrenheit 451' is now on my list for April!
Directed by GEORGE LUCAS

I always enjoy watching science fiction movies from the 1960s and 1970s, not just because of the apparent visual differences, but also because of the social commentary. This may be debatable, but it seems like filmmakers in the 1970s were in some ways braver with regard to artistic expression. I'm sure there are exceptions, but somehow I doubt films like 'Alien,' 'The Exorcist,' 'Jaws,' 'THX-1138,' or on a lighter note, 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show,' would have been made had they not been made in the 1970s.

Art By Martin Ansin and Kevin Tong

These posters are so deliciously delectable that they need their own blog posts. These prints are just beautiful. I saw this in my email from Mondo (otherwise known as Mondo Tees). Mondo creates limited edition screen printed posters for classic and contemporary films. They seem to collaborate often with the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas.

Spin-off Blogathon

Thanks to Sati, blogger extraordinaire, for hosting her first ever Blogathon. You can see more info about the blogathon here. Sati is hosting it until March 30th, so there's still time to join in if you'd like. The purpose of this blogathon is to choose a character you love and who you think deserves their own spin-off. What a great idea! My choice for a spin-off is Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) from 'Prometheus.'

'Rosemary's Baby' Remake, GoTs Exhibit, Wonder Woman Shoes! + Links

Bleeding Cool
Ok, I'm working on some really great posts, but I haven't quite finished them yet, so in the meantime, I'm going to recap 'My Favorite Things' today...again. I've just seen so many great things lately!

Zoe Saldana is the new Mia Farrow in the made for television remake of 'Rosemary's Baby.' You know I like Zoe Saldana, but I don't know how to feel about this one. I'm not a Mia Farrow fan, but this goes into that (very plentiful) category of: DID THIS REALLY NEED TO BE REMADE? 'Rosemary's Baby' is a classic horror film, like 'Carrie.' Which was also (unsuccessfully)  remade last year. You can see my take on last year's 'Carrie' here. I of course will still watch it. Patrick J. Adams of 'Suits' plays Rosemary's dastardly husband in this version. It will be a four-part mini-series, which seems a little long to me. Ok. I really need to stop complaining. Moving on...

Peter Capaldi, Cosmos Returns, GoTs Photos, Anne Rice, & A Killer Cat

Ok, I've seen a bunch of stuff today that doesn't necessarily deserve it's own blog post, but the combination of all of these things, certainly deserves a blog post. These are things that made me say yay today!

Peter Capaldi, Peter Capaldi, Peter Capaldi. Some folks may not know why people are so excited about Capaldi as 'Doctor Who,' but Capaldi has been a longtime character actor and he's a huge 'Doctor Who' fan. He's quite popular in some circles and there's nothing better than a true 'Doctor Who' fan, playing 'Doctor Who.' This is always a plus.

Jurassic Park with Cats + Links

We Are Camera Studio
What if  the velociraptors running around the kitchen in 'Jurassic Park' were actually cats. Well, then you'd have a fun video to watch. Yes, you do. This is just after Jeff Goldblum's laugh from 'Jurassic Park' was appropriately auto-tuned. In other 'Jurassic Park' news Deadline reports that Vincent D'Onofrio will be the non-dinosaur villain in the next 'Jurassic Park' film reboot, 'Jurassic World.' Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will also costar.

The Making of 'The Abyss'

James Cameron's 1989 film, 'The Abyss' has "widely been regarded as the toughest film to shoot in movie history." When I read that, I remember thinking to myself, "really?" 'The Abyss' was a good science fiction movie, but it's not one of my favorite SciFi films. It's not even one of my favorite Cameron films, that honor goes to the original 'Terminator.' But then I remembered Steven Spielberg and the making of 'Jaws.' In 2011, Spielberg said that 'Jaws' was the most difficult film he ever made...and Spielberg has made a lot of films. So if filming a movie on the water is difficult, how much more difficult would it be to make a film entirely under water? Evidently, it's pretty darn hard.

Modern Style Retro Posters

Wanna see something cool? Retro-futuristic movie posters. Yeah...that's cool. Artist Laurent Durieux has done some rather unique pieces of some of my favorite older movies and one relatively new film ('The Master'). The first one makes me miss Philip Seymour Hoffman even more. What a wonderful Oscar tribute last night. You can see all of Durieux's work here. I'm sure these have been in circulation for a while, but if they have then I missed it. I'm always a little late to the party. Tip from my dear friend Katrina, graphic designer extraordinaire.
