Short Reviews - May 2013
Three Days of the Condor - ...that was Sydney Pollack on the phone, wasn't it? IT WAS!!!!!!!!!!!
Marci X - I can't BELIEVE I didn't do this one before! Shame on me. Well, it disappeared off the Top 10 quickly. It might not have made it on in the first place. And I think I know why, because I watched a little bit of it, and director Richard Benjamin gave himself a rather juicy part in it. And I couldn't help but think to myself, "WRONG CHOICE, RICHARD! IT'S NOT THE 70S ANYMORE!!! THIS FILM IS NOT ABOUT YOU...." Well, I could've been real cruel and just said "The 70s called, wants its movie star back."
Icarus - See, this is why my blog is totally useless. I thought I made a reference to this old claymation film before. The way I found it this time was looking for Will Vinton's Mountain Music on YouTube. Icarus is a second-hand icon, basically.
Frances Ha - Funny! I always thought Greta Gerwig would hook up with Rod Webber.
Pacific Rim - Del Toro's Transformers
R.I.P.D. - Jeff Bridges tried to get some interesting photos, but the whole thing was shot in a Green Screen studio!
Dead Heat - Hmm! Wonder where they got the inspiration for R.I.P.D. ...
Monsters University - A G-rated Animal House? See, this is why people are going to eventually turn on Pixar.
"Will and Grace" - Hard to believe they got 8 seasons out of that!
