Linotype: The Film

Nerdgasm! I had a fab discussion with a friend last week about the amazingness (and sheer impossibility) of the Linotype machine, so am thrilled that there’s a documentary being made about it.

Chris Morris's Four Lions: a exclusive clip from the 'jihadist comedy'

Oh man, I can’t wait for this. A clip from Chris Morris’s upcoming comedy about English suicide bombers. Word from Sundance is that it’s as good as “In the Loop”.

The Ferris Bueller Fight Club Theory

This is possibly the most mind-blowing thing I’ve read in a while. I’ll never see that film the same way again.

"In The Loop" Trailer

This looks fantastic — A movie version of “The Thick of It”. Hoping it gets a US release. “You sound like a Nazi Julie Andrews!”

Apple - Trailers - 01-18-08

Quite possibly the best movie “teaser” ever. No title, no cast list, no clue as to WTF is going on… But dagnammit, I want to see the film!

Empire: Future Films - Knocked Up

Trailer for the new film by Judd Apatow (of Freaks & Geeks, Undeclared and 40-Year-Old Virgin), which has the excellent Seth Rogen in the leading man role. Made me laugh.

Live Free or Die Hard - Movie Details - Yahoo! Movies

Teaser trailer for the new Die Hard movie featuring Bruce Willis and A Mac. Disappointingly, given its title, not set in New Hampshire. Spoiler: Shit blows up.

Saw this trailer yesterday, and it caught my attention in the same way that the trailer for “Being John Malkovich” did years ago.

YouTube - Grind House Trailer

Trailer for the upcoming Tarantino/Rodriguez flick. Could be awesome. Could be a train wreck. But it _does_ feature Rose McGowan with a machine gun for a leg.

Is nothing sacred?

Is nothing sacred?

The (rather poorly-received) movie version of trippy 70's on-before-the-BBC-evening-news French animation, The Magic Roundabout, has been re-dubbed for America.

Some of the (mostly piss-poor ex- or current-SNL) vocal talents are horrendous. Whoopi Goldberg as Emintrude? Jimmy motherfuckin' Fallon as Dylan?!?

(Jim Broadbent vs William H Macy as Brian, on the other hand, is too close to call)

But worst of all is the bastardisation of Dougal's name for the movie's title. Clearly America is a little *too* hooked-on-phonics.
