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.

Where The Wild Things Are

Where The Wild Things Are

This is the scene in the Where the Wild Things Are trailer that gets me most excited. For whatever reason -- the wolf outfit? the crown? the silhouette? -- it's the one the punches my memory and says "You love this book."

Can't wait to see what Eggers and Jonez produce.

A Taste For The Theatrical

Trailer for the new Batman movie, and it’s dark, twisted and stonking. I’ve reached a point where I think I will go see any movie Christopher Nolan directs from here on out, because I haven’t been disappointed by any so far.

Apple - Trailers - 01-18-08
