    Reminds me of George Clooney's prank on Cheadle regarding this project.
    George Clooney has revealed his obsession for sending cards and letters supposedly from his celebrity pals, all began in 2010 at John Krasinski's wedding. The reveal came in light of Matt Damon's discovery that the 'Ocean's Eleven' actor had been posting stationary with his name on to various people in and around Hollywood, yet apparently, Brad Pitt was the first person to fall victim to the practical joke.

    While on Jimmy Kimmel's television show on Thursday, 6th February, the prankster - Clooney - revealed that Kimmel had been part of his first prank when they met at a mutual friend's wedding in Clooney's Italy villa. "You sent me a thank you gift card" said Clooney, "it actually said Brad Pitt on it, which set the wheels in motion... I've been sending letters to people as Brad Pitt for four years. Don Cheadle was trying to do the Miles Davis story and I sent him a letter from Brad, because Brad produces films, and I said, 'You know, I'm producing this Miles Davis/Charlie Parker thing and Jamie Foxx is gonna play Miles Davis, but you'd be great as Charlie Parker?'"

    Clooney continued to reveal that: "Don wrote me, like, six months later and said, 'Did you do something dirty to me?'" He then went on to talk about how his most elaborate prank was a set of dialogue tapes sent to Meryl Streep - supposedly from Pitt. Chuckling, he announced: "I said, 'To Meryl, I hear you're gonna play The Iron Lady and this guy really helped me with my dialect in Troy'. I never told either of them I did that. Now they know."

    If you buy a Digital HD movie on Amazon (Star Wars) does it let you download the file or do you have to stream it?

    I finally managed to catch Zootopia.

    That was a really good movie.

    Once again, Alan Tudyk snuck into a role and I would have had no idea if I hadn't stayed for the credits.

    My Art Appreciation professor had us watch Midnight in Paris during class today and it wasn't an April Fool's joke.

    Even worse, she showed it from an overhead projector that forced a 4:3 aspect ratio and gave the whole film this weird fisheye lens effect and left me with a headache.

    For a second I thought you meant the Paris Hilton sex tape.

    I think Midnight in Paris was the first woody allen film I'd seen, and it was alright.

    The arc of the main character was kinda balls though. He just kinda wakes up and decides that he thinks that actually the future is alright. And the audience finds this out through a conversation where he says to another character "hey, so I just woke up and realised that actually the future is alright."


    I might be misremembering.

    @THESPOOKY I believe you get a limited number of downloads and you can stream it as well

    Edit: yeah, went into my Amazon video app on my phone and it gave a download option. I believe if you go to the website you'll get the full details

    Just a friendly suggestion that anyone who hasn't seen I Love You Phillip Morris should do so as it's streaming on Netflix. This is quite possibly Jim Carrey's greatest performance, including The Truman Show. Absolutely worth watching!

    But yeah. Wouldn't have tagged him otherwise. Disney's really in another golden age, isn't it?

    And one that is better than the last one. The movies arn't just funny smart instant classic. They are very socially minded and attempting to improve the world.
    Zootopia's villain using a fear of a minority believed to be inherently uncivilized and the exchange "you think fear will work?" "Fear always works" was surprising cogent.

    Also, regarding his character
    His name is Duke Weaselton (pronounced Weasel-ton) which Judy Hops mispronounces as Wessle-ton

    You may remember this guy from Frozen,

    Malin Akerman was Silk Spectre II in Watchmen and Taissa Farmiga was the daughter in S1 of American Horror Story. Malin is by far the biggest name of that cast, easily.

    Just watched Swordfish for the first time in probably fifteen years.

    That was certainly a film made before 9/11.

    I was also amused that all 5 of the top-billed cast have also played Marvel characters (Wolverine, Storm, War Machine, Juggernaut, and then John Travolta was the main villain of the second Punisher film though I think his character was made for the film instead of being based on a comic character).

    My wife didn't remember Vinnie Jones as the Juggernaut, so I pointed out that he was Gareth in Galavant. Then we were surprised when King Richard from Galavant showed up for a single scene later in the movie.

    As a side note, the computer stuff and hacking-related dialogue was far more believable in Hackers than in this film. And Hackers was a movie where an oil company used a needlessly complicated 3D file browser in a time before the N64.

    Watched Odd Thomas earlier, thought it was fun and funny, obviously didn't take itself too seriously. Looked it up on IMDB to find out that it's actually a book series? Makes sense, had a very Dresden feel to it.

    Currently watching John Dies at the End and watching these two back to back makes me want rewatch Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.

    ...

    Oh my God, it's a vampire bat cop mustache.

    Bagel's Public Domain Movie of the Week:

    Gamera vs. Viras (aka "Destroy All Planets" because every Robocop needs its "Android Cop"). In which a 90 minute movie devotes 20 minutes of runtime to reairing scenes from previous movies. Also there's an alien squid monster that's pretty shitty even for this franchise and a spaceship that I can only describe as a "bumblebee teething ring".

    The one thing I know about Swordfish is that it apparently has Halle Berry topless.

    I have never seen this movie, and was 10 when it came out. I am not sure why that information is in my brain.

    I knew about that because a couple years after Swordfish came out, there were infomercials after 10 PM on cable for VHS/DVDs of famous actresses nude scenes and Halle Berry in Swordfish featured prominently

    I've always remembered that because I thought it was a strange idea at the time and now, with the internet, well

    I have to imagine the people who put that project together thought they were real clever for about six months
