So what are your plans for this Memorial Day weekend? I usually like to head down to Coney Island every year and soak up the sea air and get some munchies at Nathan's (I'm partial to their fries myself - y'know, the ones they give you a tiny little fork with). Going out of town? Barbeque maybe? Let me know in the comments. In the meantime, let's take a look at what's going down in the rest of the film blog world...
Retrospace has a way-cool compilation of songs from old sci-fi movies and similarly themed sci-fi tunes.
Here's an interesting idea for a blogathon: movies that potentially could be future classics one day. Of course, these choices are highly subjective, but I don't think I can argue with most of these.
John at The Droid You're Looking For (a fine blog) drops some science on B-movie cult director William Castle.
I would sooner watch one of these theoretical "Celebrity Battleship" movies, I think, than the actual Battleship movie.
Here's a great piece written by a TV producer about the long hours it takes to film a TV show and just how brutal it can get.
In the debate on whether Marvel owes anything to the estate of artist Jack Kirby in the wake of the Avengers movie, here's a strong argument against it.
And here's a nice interview with stage, screen and television star Angela Lansbury, still going strong at age 86!
My holiday weekend has flown by so far--I had a few graduation open houses and got to visit an old friend. Tomorrow, I'll try to be outside, but it's gonna be pretty hot. I may have to come inside and watch a good movie as a break from the heat. I'm sort of glad my family doesn't have any plans this year, so I can chill out on my extra day off!ReplyDelete
Hope you make it to Coney Island, or if not, enjoy whatever you get to do!
I'll take summers over winters any day.Delete
