“That’s the trouble with women. Sure I’ve been hurt before. I gave them something, they gave me something. But there comes a time when you start to ask questions. All on account of that little door. In a couple, the door has to stay open. And when it’s open it’s either to bring in new nourishment… or it’s to let you out. Either you add a little seed… and that seed can be a baby, or a good time or a holiday… Or you get out, lock, stock and seed. With women, you can’t always tell if the door’s open and if it’s time to add a seed, or get the hell out. I’ve been hurt because I’d open the door wide, and they’d shut it. Love leaves a trail of sulfur like some lingering smell. As soon as you meet someone, you smell it. Like when you take a leak, your fingers smell. You have to wash them two or three times so you can forget you pissed.”
Vice Magazine has a pretty good piece up about Over the Edge. I don’t have much to say about it but I know some of you guys are fans of the movie so I thought I’d mention it.
Even ten years ago, this guy’s hair was nuts!! Also, is Tim Burton + Kevin Smith + Nic Cage the most incredible recipe for shit, or what?
This gallery of Ghanan movie posters is incredible. The posters were created to advertise travelling showings of movies on VHS, and were often created by artists who hadn’t seen the movie! Be warned that some of the posters are pretty horrific and possibly NSFW? The links at the bottom of the article have more examples of these posters, and the rest of the blog seems pretty interesting, too.
Outland Gets a Remake — And an Entirely New Plot
I post this less because it’s noteworthy, and more just because I wanted to talk about Outland- I recently saw it and really enjoyed it. It perfectly walked the line between a serious, gripping narrative on the one hand, and Sean Connery + 80’s sci-fi effects on the other. It certainly helped that I went in with low expectations, so they were more than met. If you like westerns, sci-fi, Alien, Sean Connery, or any combination thereof, I recommend checking this movie out!
Groundhog’s Day is one of several classic comedies that I’d never seen until very recently (I’ve also recently seen, for the first time, What About Bob?, The Jerk, and Fletch). It was much, much better than I was expecting it to be, although I did not put any thought into how long Bill Murray’s character must have spent in Punxsutawney. The guy linked above did, though! His answer was a minimum of 8+ years, which surprised me. I didn’t really get the impression that such a long time had passed! Apparently Harold Ramis had pegged the number at around 10 years, and later responded to the above analysis, reconfiguring his own estimate to be closer to 30-40 years spent in Punxsutawney. I’ll have to watch the movie again sometime with that in mind.
