The best (only) good thing about insomnia, is that it affords you time to watch rented movies without either having to explain the plot to someone (oooh, lets say, for sake of argument: Mum) over and over again, or having someone (again, sake of argument, lets say Dad) deciding that the big finale would be a really good time to have a huge in-depth conversation about something you don't know much about (or know about but don't give a damn, one of the two).

Anyway, I have been taking advantage of the current sleeping drought to catch up on cinema. Tonight's offering: The Producers.

I should point out at this juncture that I was practically raised on a diet of Mel Brooks films. Dad's fault. He trained me well, what with the Python and the Goons and so forth. I could quote liberally from Young Frankenstein before I was ten, the bean scene from Blazing Saddles is permanently etched on my funnybone and dammit, I actually LIKE Spaceballs!

Bet you're thinking I'm about to say I hated it and the original was better, huh? Nah, I'm just messin with ya. I loved it. But then, I love Matthew Broderick, and it was great to see him sing and dance - and I think he did neurotic Leo Bloom even better than Gene Wilder.

This, however is not my point. Hey, I've not had any sleep for a fortnight, I'm doing well to have gotten here so quick, so stop yer whining!

My point is this: fandom collision is bad for my health. To whit: Captian Jack with blonde hair, goose-stepping in time, belting out 'Springtime for Hitler'! I couldn't see the screen for laughing. Why did no-one warn me that John Barrowman was in this film?!

And with that image firmly lodged in your collective noggins, I return you to your regularly scheduled flists.

Just saw Brokeback Mountain.

I was right. I did cry.

There was one specific point during Alien Autopsy when I knew they'd nailed it. During a particular speech Gary gave, dad from beside me was heard to utter, "Wow, he's cool!"

And I knew it to be so.

Halfway through the film I was cringing at one point, going "No, Ray, no. Gary, do something!" under my breath... and realised what I'd said. Not 'Dec'... not 'Ant'...

This made me happy.

I left the cinema beaming. Asked Dad what he thought.

"It didn't suck!"

I want to see it again.

The actual, proper Alien Autopsy site is up. I will let you discover the true horror of the navigation system for yourselves (the sound effects are the ace kind of gross) but Do check out the production stills... oh boy!

And, finally, finally! We have the full trailer. I am a little relieved. But still withholding judgement.

Go see!

The site for THE MOVIE *giggles* has been updated with a fab new layout, looks like the final poster... Still no content, but we've got plenty of time until April... makes me hope that if they're sprucing the site up, a full trailer can't be that far away.

And the first thing I thought of seeing that pic? 'Even in character they can't help but mirror each other..."

Yes, I know, nuts.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! It's up! The teaser trailer is up! I have finally seen the teaser! *does excitable fangirl dance* It's only a tiny tiny screen size though, not exactly HD video, but I'm hoping a better sized version will appear soon.

OMIGOSH... its real... they're really in a real film for real... oh boy... this could either be complete and utter genius or it could tank spectacularly...

*crosses everything and goes off to watch the trailer again*

Dad took me to see Curse of the Were-Rabbit tonight - just in from the cinema. Oh, I have not laughed so much in ages! There are so many sly little references to the W&G shorts, as well as pisstakes of just about every genre of movie imaginable... why did I ever worry that Nick Park and Steve Box wouldn't be able to keep the story going for a feature-length endeavour?

I'm too tired to squee properly, but I urge you to see it, your funnybone will thank you!

According to the IMDB, Alien Autopsy is coming out April 14th next year. Interesting, since it's still filming... Empire has the most info on it so far, here. Hmmm... not quite so worried anymore :)

I was actually scanning the film sites to see when The Brothers Grimm is coming out here, since it's being released at the end of this month in the US. December 30th! WTF? I have to see this film! (Click on that link to view the trailer, than tell me you're not intreagued :))

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is wonderful! Just got back from the cinema about five minutes ago... still chuckling! I was pleased that it was a lot closer to the book than the first version (which I was never that keen on, although I've always liked the scene in the boat as done in the 70s version, I thought it was the only bit they managed well) - spot on, that's for sure! :)

There's a lovely huge double page photo of the lads in full movie mode in this week's Heat, burying what appears to be a body (must be the fake alien...) wrapped in horrible curtains. The buzz is beginning! Oh, and Warners have picked up the film for international release, apparently, according to various sci-fi sites (yes, I admit it, I'm a sadarse fangirl).

My mother is in despair: "Oh god, you'll want to go see it..." and... "You'll be counting down to it from now, won't you?"

Hee :)

Dad decided I needed cheering up and arrived home with two tickets for Madagascar. Not laughed so much in a long time. Seriously, this movie is wasted on kids, there are so many references to other films that most kids won't even have heard of... ah, geeks after my own heart, all :) The penguins are terrific, btw...

Plus there were fantastic looking trailers for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were Rabbit - I HAVE to see those, but especially the latter! :D

*going to bed chuckling*

Hahaha! GMTV just did a tiny behind-the-scenes on Ant and Dec's movie (I missed most of it because I was out of the room and had the sound off, so had no idea what I was looking at when I returned ). OMG... [livejournal.com profile] madscot, when you said Ant was in glasses, I did not realise the true magnitude of geekdom entailed in this - bad shirt, hair plastered to expansive forehead and the NHS specs... and Dec! Gordon Bennett! Ginger hair and a bum bag! It took me a minute to grasp the full glory of the hair because I was laughing at the bum bag so hard I teared up...

The movie had better be funny... ;) It's not out 'til next year, omg...
