Actual film is still useful

Actual film is still useful. Whatever you have, exposed or not, hang onto it. The price for this particular application tripled overnight.

Smoking in films is cool.

Not sure I know of anyone, male or female, that is into competition building of Legos.

Oh Jesus. The only movie Mark might hate more than Ice Pirates, is Cheerleader Ninjas. Pretty sure that the director or producer actually called him out on twitter way back when Mark wrote his review of the film, back in... 2006?
...and this is why it's a moral imperative for The Podcast.

hahaha the bitterness is real. Heh, nah, I think it's funny. Poor Mark though, I have many more suggestions...Muhuhuhaahaaa!! My goal now is to find a movie that Mark thinks is worse than Ice Pirates. Gonna' have to dig deep. Just as a personal goal though, not for the podcast. I nominate "Cheerlea...

Lego-building competition series (chicks only)

Posted by a dear friend:

"Just spoke to a casting producer who is trying to cast a female team for a televised Lego-building competition series. Who wants details?"

Any thoughts, recommendations? I'll put ya'll in touch.

It Follows

Chad introduced me to "It Follows" a few years ago, a film about a...creature? Entity? that follows the last person who had sex and, on a capture/kill of the last person to get lucky, follows the most recent person "biblically related" to the deceased. And on down the line. The Creature/Entity is in...

Can't wait for Natalie to say something like "oh my god, some creepo made a movie called 'sex, drugs and natalie portman' ages ago." At this point, hopefully that doesn't happen when we both (eventually) are working on the same film set. *cringe*
That would be a good short film.

Re: ITT: Social Media

Social media reached the point where the signal-to-noise ratio just isn't acceptable to anybody who values their time. I'd kinda expect a resurgence in forums, but thoughtful discourse requires an attention span - where the lack of which I mostly blame the internet in general, not social media. Edit...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #68 - "The Ice Pirates" (1984)

You each summed it beautifully in two separate sentence fragments put together: "You can do anything you want in the view of the lens and...this is what they chose to film" - "like, how cheesy and tacky it is." That's it. That's all there is to it. Anything more than that is overinterpretation, tryi...

Re: Bond 25

Related note: I hope the score for "Shatterhand" is as strong as they were for "Quantum of Solace" (composer David Arnold) and "Skyfall" (Thomas Newman). I'm getting a lot more mileage out of the music than I have the actual films.

Re: Bond 25

I think "Shatterhand" could be brilliant, but it's more likely to be predictable. If the studio is going with a reasonably faithful rendition of "You Only Live Twice" (novel) - Bond is after Blofeld in The Garden of Death - coupled with elements of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" - Irma Bunt kills...

Bond 25

A thread regaling us with the rumor and speculation surrounding the various Bond 25 announcements. A few of the posters work within industry, so it's an interesting read from a film production view, especially in the sprawling Bond franchise. 4,920 posts starting in May 2017... https://quarterdeck.c...
