    bill murray accepted the first garfield movie because the director's last name was coen, and he thought it was the coen brothers

    the second one was because bill murray is a dirtbag

    Really? I thought it was because the guy who voiced garfield in the cartoon also voiced Murray's character in the Real Ghostbusters.

    The Peeps Movie is a rare chance for a light, fluffy film to also be unpalatably gritty.

    "A new take on the epic fantasy genre... Darkly comic, relatable characters... twisted storyline."
    "Readers who prefer tension and romance, Maledictions: The Offering, delivers... As serious YA fiction, I’ll give it five stars out of five. As a novel? Four and a half." - Liz Ellor

    I've taken my kids to see movies I really don't want to sit through just to keep them entertained and get out of the house.

    And the only thing I want to do as much as go to a movie theater right now is to eat in a restaurant or go to a bar. But I'd still choose another weekend stuck at home over taking my kids to see a Peeps movie.

    I honestly think that's the real reason and that he just gave a funny reason when asked about it. Money probably didn't hurt, either.

    So I decided to continue watching Miyazaki movies.

    I actually skipped over Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind when I watched Castle In The Sky, so I decided to watch it tonight.

    Hey folks? I'm thirty minutes into Nausicaä of the Valley of the Windand and ya know what?

    It fucking rules

    I get that Akira feeling from watching Nausicaa in that it's a very interesting movie animated very well... that's not even a cliff notes summary of the full plot. In that vein, I feel like Akira ends up being the much better experience.

    See I completely and totally disagree! Mostly because Nausicaa is completely coherent and full as a narrative, and Akira is... uh, Akira. I think the big difference is that Miyazaki always intended for Nausicaa to be a movie, but the only way he could get funding for it was if it were based on a manga, so he did a manga so he could make the movie he’d already written the screenplay for

    Bonus fact: Nausicaa came out four years before Akira! Which I did not know until like last week. With the incredibly Akira-esque monster at the end, I always thought it was the other way around somehow

    Double fun fact the monster at the end was animated by Hideaki Anno of Evangelion and Shin Godzilla fame.

    There's a few scenes that make the connection between Nausicaa and Evangelon pretty obvious, too.

    I remember how excited I was to see Tom Bombadil the first time I saw Peter Jackson's Fellowship, I love that... guy? entity? inscrutable force from before time?

    he really let me down.

    also okay so I've never been clear on this. Is Middle-Earth a Hyborian Age style pre-history Earth, or a different place entirely?

    Like, when the Elves and everybody leaves and it's time for the Fourth Age, aka The Age of Man, is that the transition between Middle-Earth to regular Earth?

    The initial idea was for it to be an Earth mythology like the Greeks or Romans or whathaveyou, however this idea was eventually abandoned. The Book of Lost Tales that was never finished was about an Anglo-Saxon dude who actually stumbled upon Valinor while off exploring, and the Book was supposed to be his journal of his experiences there. There's a lot left over from that idea, including the general shape of the map which is still vaguely sort of European.

    I think it's less "Patrick Stewart wants those cash dollars" and more "Patrick Stewart doesn't give a solitary care in the world".

    He's been the delightful, morally bankrupt coke addict Deputy Director of the CIA in American Dad for like, 15 dang years.

    I think he's the kind of guy who thinks "haha, me, Patrick Stewart, being a poop, hilarious!"

    I listen to a lot of podcasts with actors, writers, and directors. Based on those interviews I feel like there are broadly two groups of these artists.

    The first get wrapped up in their own bullshit or success and get into this auteur mode where like it's about the art, man.

    The second are there to make money.

    I think most people started in the second group, but some evolve into the first.

    I think most artists start out wanting to tell stories that are important to them, stories that matter, and then they get to a point where they can actually make a genuine attempt at doing so, and then they learn how little appetite there is for those stories, and then they go, "Well, fuck it, might as well make some money now that I put in all the effort to get here."
