buster keaton, he had the most beautiful deadpan expression.
have you seen UP yet? you should go see it, preferably with some kids (though perhaps aged 5 and UP, my 4 year old nephew found parts a bit scary). but i have to tell you, the short film they showed before the film – Partly Cloudy – was probably my favourite, favourite part. as soon as it was over, i wanted to watch it again. probably the best short film since For The Birds. in fact, they should just make all their short films about birds.
i watched 1/2 of watchmen last night. i would have enjoyed it more if it went something like this:
adult movie posters of the 60s & 70s – more here (some of the better ones are nsfw)
these toy sculptures by adam beane are incredible, his portfolio is a must see. he even did a johnny cash toy, and his princess leia is also super rad. i remember watching shaun of the dead for the first time & died laughing at this:
Why have we got to go to Liz’s?
Because we do.
But she dumped you!
I have to know if she’s all right!
Because I love her!
All right… gayyy…
PS: if you haven’t seen shaun of the dead, you should! also be sure to watch hot fuzz.
i bought my nephew the neverending story on DVD for his 10th birthday (which is today). i hope he loves it as much as i did when i was a kid! my brother and i watched it almost all the time after school (i always fast-forwarded the wolf part, if i was on my own). i kind of hated bastian, but loved atreyu. i also really enjoyed falkor and of course always cried when artax died in the swamps of sadness.
oh man, our video collection was pretty classic. i was also obsessed with the three amigos, robin hood (disney) & the princess bride
