What I appreciate about conservatives is that their strawman style of argument works its way into all facets of life, so you have Freddy saying things like the above.

I heard that Scalia once broke a chair on Stephen Weber's back over that "Shining" remake.

but what's really funny is that I doubt FK has seen either "3:10 to Yuma"; he's just drunk on free beer.  This is vintage, pre-conservative FK, actually.

You can certainly see a thread of continuity.

They probably won't.  If it were coming out like, this week they might, but they've got until summer, plus all the footage is in the can

And honestly this can only help the film financially.

They were showing footage of his performance on the morning show while I was on my lunch break and I have to say, it looked pretty disturbing.

Yeah, apparently playing the part took a pretty big emotional and physical toll on him.  That's what I read, anyway. 

Either way, it's sad that he died.  Sad

He was a much better actor than Brad Renfro, that's for sure!

Yeah, I've noticed a couple cable tv news channels I am guilty of watching (I just watch in case some new twist in the natalie holloway case emerges! seriously. swear) -- keep tying together his role as the joker and his death/suicide. It seems a little far fetched, although I don't doubt everything can take a toll! though i'd be more likely to place the blame at our cannibalistic celebrity world, where people that are too-young become too-successful, too-quick, and buy too many drugs.

and not to make light of it, but, jack nicholson has a quote out there, and the entire quote is,

'i warned him'.

which, considering nicholson once portrayed the ol' joker, is creepitatious. maybe he warned him not to play the joker!?

not that i think that was it or to make light of the guy's death. and i honestly can't believe you guys are worried about batman delays! pretty cold, yo! but i mean, maybe you really like YOUR BATMAN!

so hey, saw two movies while lptj was down.

first, "brazil". and it wasn't bad, don't get me wrong, but i think this movie might be a tad overrated. i saw the 2 1/2 hour cut, too, which i know is the director's preferred version, but i ended up feeling like there were certain parts that could have been cut down a bit. i don't usually think that way about any movie, but i guess because i know the whole history behind this one, it was on my mind. the woman who played jill did really well, as did the guy who played sam, and i can't complain about robert deniro either, but there was a bit of overacting by the less major characters, i felt. also, you could really tell that the movie was directed by a former monty python director--though this was a good thing, on the whole. i got kind of weirded out by the ending at first, too, until i saw the VERY end and figured out what was actually going on. then, i really liked it. and one more thing--all the stuff in the movie about terrorism being a smokescreen to enable the government to more efficiently run the lives of ordinary citizens and take away their rights reminded me so much of current events, it was sort of creepy. i could imagine that movie being made today, and it actually seems more on-target today than i would think it was 20 years ago.

also, last night, i saw "running with scissors". i've read the book, so i knew what to expect from the overall plot, but i wasn't sure how much of what was in the book would make it into the movie and how much would be left out. i found that the book played the story for dark comedy a lot more, while the movie concentrated just as much on the misery and fuckedupness of the whole situation as it did humor, perhaps more so. i thought the movie was really well done, and enjoyed it all the way through, but there were a couple parts where it kinda got topheavy with its own bleakness or whatever, which pulled me out of the movie a bit. i think they really would have been better off putting a little more humor and less pathos into it. but as i said, it was still good. joseph cross, brian cox, annette bening, and evan rachel wood all did really well in it, i thought. with lesser actors it might really have been a good bit harder to suspend disbelief, so kudos to whoever cast it.

Brazil is great! Terry Gilliam isn't the most focussed film maker around, that's for sure, but Brazil is one movie where it still manages to hang together.
