3D Hobbit

I didn't see Avatar in 3D. I have seen several other movies in 3D, though, and none of them have convinced me that the extra money is worth it. Maybe with The Hobbit?

Please, Put Me Out of Lucas's Misery

I know I am sick enough to pay to see the originals in the theater and in 3D, but after watching this I'm afraid I may be sick enough to watch the crapfest that is the new trilogy, in 3D. The movie doesn't look any better, but it's Star Wars. Remember when that really meant something?

The Story of River Song

One thing that I don't like about episodic science fiction is when they introduce a character in an episode that we're supposed to love and then kill them. There's never a strong enough emotional impact. They only existed for an hour of TV time and then are gone. Why should I care about them?

Steven Moffat's turned that old story on its ear by killing River Song in her first appearance and then bringing her back throughout the Doctor's travels through time.

We've seen it through his perspective, now see it through hers:

Jim Emerson's In the Cut

Jim Emerson, of the excellent blog movie Scanners, has been producing video essays about cutting together action sequences. He starts with the chase scene from The Dark Knight, a film he has largely negative opinions of, to help explain to himself and his readers why he doesn't like Nolan's direction.

Here are the three parts he's release so far:

In the Cut, Part I: Shots in the Dark (Knight) from Jim Emerson on Vimeo.

In the Cut, Part II: A Dash of Salt from Jim Emerson on Vimeo.

In the Cut Part III: I Left My Heart in My Throat in San Francisco from Jim Emerson on Vimeo.

I've mentioned his blog here before and I'd like to recommend it again. It's probably my favorite blog about movies, that I know of at least.

I was in college when this song was released. I know the words, but I've never liked the song. Until today:

They Might Be Giants covers Chumbawamba

Now that's fun.

Lazy or Limited Animation?

It's a facinitating look at the animation of Seth McFarlane. I get the feeling that if the writing was stronger, no one would care about the lack of animation. (Everything that's not animated is blacked out.) One of the greatest animated shows ever, Rocky and Bullwinkle, has some of the crappiest animation. Just thought I should point that out.

Here's the article this video came from.

Good-bye Ms. Jones

Author Diana Wynne Jones died earlier today.

Most people probably know her because she wrote the novel Howl's Moving Castle. My favorite book of hers is A Tale of Time City. If you've never read anything by her, I highly recommend it. If you have kids, feel free to use them as an excuse to buy her books.
