“It’s mind-boggling, the movie […] I think it is one of the most beautifully designed, elegant, powerful, sci-fi movies. It has certainly taken what he created in ‘Children of Men’ and pushed it even more.
I can go back to almost 30 years ago, more than 30 years ago, when we met, and we have the exact same relationship. When I see his work, I want to be a better filmmaker, I want to push myself.” [x]
We’ve got our hands on a UK exclusive character poster for Thor: The Dark World, and we’re sure you’ll agree - it’s awesome…
Prepare for geekgasm: Ian McKellen is playing an elderly Sherlock Holmes in Bill Condon’s upcoming film A Slight Trick of the Mind. The logline:
The story picks up with the detective at age 93, long-ago retired to the rural area of Sussex, where he is haunted by an unresolved case from a half-century ago.
His partner, Dr. Watson, is no longer with him. And his mental acuity has bid him farewell, too. This is a Sherlock Holmes grappling with his own faded and tattered memory, whose powers of observation and deduction are not what they used to be.
the deeper the bond, the better you fight

there’s nothing i love more than when a sci-fi film starts with WORDS
"a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away"
"kaiju (japanese), jaeger (german)."
"… a being virtually identical to a human known as the replicant."
Why aren’t we freaking out about this? Why haven’t I been freaking out about this?
[★] 2/4 Genres:
I’ve seen this many times and with each viewing, it’s more touching. This is a collection of outtakes from Inglourious Basterds (2009) that features actors and others on set looking to the camera and saying “Hi Sally” to Sally Menke, Quentin Tarantino’s longtime editor.
Knowing that Menke would be sitting in a dark editing suite shaping endless amounts of footage, Tarantino thought this would be a nice way to make her smile and keep her motivated through what can be a solitary process.
Sadly, in 2010 Sally Menke died, so Inglourious Basterds was their last collaboration. And beyond the sweet sentiment, this set of outtakes gives us a little window into the intimate working relationship between Menke and Tarantino.
Tarantino has briefly talked about the emotional experience of working on Django Unchained (2012) without her, and said that during the entire editing process, there was a sign put up that read “WWSD” – What Would Sally Do?
A cautionary warning: This video contains some cursing…just a little…and it’s very funny.
Makes me smile.
