I just watched Shelter (starring Julianne Moore, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Frances Conroy) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcQ5LG9ZS4k). AWFUL! Skip it. When I saw it at the library and that Julianne Moore was in it, I thought, "good...Julianne Moore has never done a bad movie". First time for everything... :( Rhys Meyers was quite good in it, as was Conroy. But their talents were wasted.

On the imdb.com message boards, one poster suggested Faye Dunaway and Jane Fonda. :D Another poster suggested Meryl Streep and Glenn Close. A third suggestion: "Angelina Jolie as Jane and Jennifer Aniston as Blanche????" :lol:

Walter Hill to Direct What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Remake (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=92436)

Hill directed 48 Hours and it's sequel as well as The Warriors and Streets of Fire. He has been involved in some way with most of the Alien movies as well as the Alien/Predator sequels. Most recently, he was one of the producers of Prometheus.

Woo hoo, my library just posted Salmon Fishing in the Yemen on their catalogue, and I'm first in the queue (comes out on DVD July 24). I wanted to see this one on the big screen but it was only showing at a couple of inconvenient locations.

Saw it in the cinema here. It was an OK distraction for an hour and a half, but I wouldn't go to pay and see it again.

This may have been posted before; I just don't remember. It's a neat little video with faces of men in film. See how many you know before you look at the names. When the page comes up there's also a link on the right for one with women.
I liked the men better. :) It's about 3 1/2 minutes.

ETA: When I went back to the page, the one on the women was gone. But you can do a search I guess.

How about Maggie Smith and Judi Dench? Or Brenda Blethyn? Or Julie Walters? Baby Jane with British accents. :D

Seems like all the big name actresses would want to play Jane.

After hearing a review (http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/the-buzz/2012/07/film-review-beasts-of-the-southern-wild.html) (from a reviewer that I tend to agree with about 85% of the time) I really want to see Beasts of the Southern Wild.

I'm guessing it will be really limited release though. No showings at all currently listed for Vancouver, though imdb says released today in Canada.

It has Ewan McGregor. Nothing else required for it to be a "distraction" for me :D

Went to the 60th Anniversary showing of "Signing In The Rain", last night. Everything was wonderful, until the satellite feed cut out just as Lena Lamont was giving her speech. The theater could not get it restored. We felt bad for some of the people who had never seen the movie before this. We did get free tickets as a compensation.

It was wonderful to see it on the big screen! So very different from watching on TV. People in the audience sang along, while others danced a little in their seats. And best of all, there was applause after several of the dancing sequences.

When I read this, I thought the title sounded interesting so I went to check it out on Netflix and it turns out it's already in my queue. :lol:

Now THAT I might go for.

Maybe with Jonah Hill as Edwin Flagg, or Philip Seymour Hoffman.

This is really well done. The actor one played much better, as I found the actress one to be too fast. But it was cool, thanks!

First trailer came out yesterday for Oz: The Great and Powerful (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyywumlnhdw). This prequel looks beautiful and I am quite hopeful it will be a worthy companion piece to The Wizard of Oz. The cast for this new movie includes James Franco, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff and Mila Kunis.
