First of all: a new Secret Life of Dolls cliffhanger, wherein Bella finally discovers the Sparklerosa, is thataway. 

(Looking over my shoulder, my mother asked me to explain what was going on in the entry. She had to have most of the doll source material references explained, but she knew immediately why I had called it the Sparklerosa. Heh.)

So: I left the house twice this weekend, and it took two days for the piper to show up wanting payment: I have now come down with fluish symptoms (may not actually be flu). Basically, I hurt all over and I feel clammy-feverish, in addition to my general autumn snerfle-blarg and three or four nights of insomnia. And yet, I am leaving the house TOMORROW as well. YOU CAN'T HOLD ME DOWN! I DO WHAT I WANT!

Coughing all the way.


Zack Snyder Tapped to Direct the Chris Nolan-produced 'Superman' Reboot; Zack Snyder Is The New 'Superman' Director... And Here's Why You Should Be Excited About It! I would say "In before THIS! IS! KRYPTONNNN! jokes!" but I'm probably way, waaaaay too late.

Emma Stone Will Play Gwen Stacy, Not Mary Jane in Spider-Man. 

David E. Kelley To Make New Wonder Woman TV Series.

Peter Jackson Confirmed as 'Hobbit' Director and Film Will be Shot in 3D. You know the music that plays when Gollum finally gets the Ring in ROTK, that fallen-angel mix of doom, horror and glee? I'm kind of hearing that now.

Dario Argento talks “DRACULA 3D.” I'm hearing it a lot louder now.

Fox Goes Vampire Hunting with Abraham Lincoln. Now I'm just hearing the part where Frodo starts choking him.

'Let The Right One In' Author John Lindqvist Digs 'Let Me In': MTV News Exclusive. Speaking of which, we had some really great movie discussion here over the weekend. P.S. If you want to get Let the Right One In--the Swedish original--the DVD and Blu-Ray on Amazon have the correct "theatrical subtitles." People on Twitter report that discs from Netflix are correct, but the Netflix Instant version is not.

"Deathly Hallows" Set Reports.

Jeff Bridges And Matt Damon Blow Us Away In New 'True Grit' Trailer; Trailer for Julie Taymor's 'The Tempest' Arrives Amidst Poor Festival Buzz; ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest’ trailer; Come Preview the 'Burke and Hare' International Trailer.

'Hatchet 2' Director Updates Us On Why The Film Was Pulled From Theaters. 

Bill Condon announces key crew for ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.’ Please note that they have hired the actual makeup artist from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button for Renesmee. I... I was just joking about that! Also: The Woman on the Cover of Twilight: Sorta NutsNew 'Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide' Will Tell Alice's Backstory And More!  Aw, fuck, am I gonna have to recap this? Because I really don't want to know Alice's back story. God knows what fuckery might be therein. Alice spent several decades abiding in awesome, the end, thank you for your time.

@cleolinda: Guys, please stop sending me Robert Pattinson's preteen modeling pictures. Chris Hansen's come to my house three times already.

@queenanthai: @cleolinda I was wondering why he didn't show up for our usual noon chat.

@thomasls: @cleolinda Why don't you have a seat over there?

@cleolinda: @thomasls My favorite Hansen line was, "Did you bring enough vodka for me?"

@gfrancie: @cleolinda BEST Chris Hansen line ever, "Did you bring your collar with you? What is all this slave talk in here?"

@cleolinda: @gfrancie I am going to use "What is all this slave talk in here?" IRL if it kills me.

Speaking of effects that David Fincher has used, Will Bad CGI Breath Cost The Social Network a Visual Effects Oscar Nomination? Which would be a damn shame, because I loved the Winklevi. (That was the other movie I saw this weekend, but the discussion writeup devolved into Allegra D-fueled ramblings that didn't even make sense to me by the end of it.)

And finally, because it made me laugh: "I hope my bike takes you straight to hell."

I remember seeing Rpattz' preteen modeling pictures right after he was in GoF and only being able to say "WAT"

they still make me go "WAT"

You're the same as me, we don't go out enough to get the communal germs, so when we do they all attack and we have no resistance for them. :(

Also, The Hobbit better damn well be shown with a 2D option, or there will be much hissy-fitting from my direction. Not all of us can do 3D, Hollywood. Some of us don't have depth perception.

Given that the 3D in Alice in Wonderland killed the perspective they used to make Alice bigger (at least for me) (most noticeably in the scene with the White Queen, in an echo of a scene with Bilbo and Gandalf in The Fellowship of the Ring), I'm really not looking forward to The Hobbit in 3D, given that, again, they'll be using a lot of perspective to make the heights right.

Why do I get this sinking feeling that Bill Condon is trying to turn Breaking Dawn into Oscar bait?

I'm pretty sure that's why they hired him. Honestly, if they pull this Renesmee bullshit off, I could actually see them getting an effects nomination. I mean, Michael Bay movies get visual effects nominations.

The the fallen angel mix of doom snark made me laugh out loud hehe.

I remember a year or so back the Twilight hand lady did a signing or something and she seemed kinda scared about the attention. Now it seems like she's straight up injecting the crazy into the veins.

That bike flyer is frickin' awesome. Maybe I should do a similar one directed at the asshats who live in the apartment directly above me who insist on stomping around and slamming doors at 3:00 in the morning.

... maybe I shouldn't actually put it up until I'm ready to move to a new place, though. XD

Hehe, I know this is a bit late but that icon is pretty win.

"I... I was just joking about that!"

That's it, you must never joke about ANYTHING ever again. Unless you lock the entry. It's just too dangerous.

Elsewhere . . . Andrew Garfield & Emma Stone sounds like a good combination. Just saw him in "Never Let Me Go" -- liked the movie, was very impressed by him. And just saw her in "Easy A" -- hated the movie, but liked her.

Aw, fuck, am I gonna have to recap this?

If I have to do the inevitable This Isn't Twilight: Breaking Dawn: A XXX Parody, you have to review EVERYTHING ELSE.

And you know it's going to happen.

Oh sweet mother of sparkle.

Dear Ms. Meyer:

Just leave Alice in awesomeness - please Oh God Please. Because by doing ANYTHING here will ruin the best thing in your series.

Somethings should be untouched.

Remember George Lucas? Yeah, make notes.

We are begging you.

Signed - we few, we weary few.....

Signed - we few, we weary few.....

We band of buggered.

(Dear George, STOP IT. JUST STOP IT.)

OMG the Coen brothers redid John Wayne. With Jeff Bridges. And Matt Damon. I might actually have to see this. I'm also going to see the Tempest, but if it is actually terrible I will probably weep into the popcorn the whole time.

David E. Kelley To Make New Wonder Woman TV Series.
If he makes this into Amazon McBeal I will personally fly my invisible plane to LA to smack him.

Tonight, you are my favorite person.

The Tempest :( :( :(

And OH GOD the makeup artist from Benjamin Button? HA HA HA! It seems they're spending more money on this one, doesn't it? And I still don't see how they have enough plot to fill two movies.

(Deleted comment)
Is the rum gone?

...I'll see myself out. Sorry. *cough*

Catching up on SLOD entries

I am seeking assistance, is there anywhere on the interwebz where we can read the 'Secret Life Of Dolls' entries in consecutive order?

I've lost track of where I am in the storyline and I'm wanting to go back and re-read to refresh my swiss cheese like memory.

Emma Stone's playing Gwen Stacey instead of MJ.

Which I suppose continues the pattern established by Sam Raimi of casting redheads as blondes and blondes as redheads. Isn't Emma reddish? Or am I on crack? So which blonde are they casting to play MJ?

At least Emma is naturally a blonde, she's just been dying her hair red since some casting guy told her to and it kept getting her gigs.

I would say "In before THIS! IS! KRYPTONNNN! jokes!" but I'm probably way, waaaaay too late.

Oh, I'm sure those will be done, but I suspect snarky pondering about whether we'll be subjected to Supes' wang will show up first...



And am I seriously the only person upset about the fact that they've remade True Grit? John Wayne movies were a huge part of my childhood and I can't separate Rooster Cogburn from The Duke. I was shocked by the fact that I actually got angry seeing Jeff Bridges wearing that eyepatch.
It's supposed to be just a movie (adapted from a novel). Why would I get that angry (I actually threw a hissy fit like I was in sixth grade or something)? Why does it still upset me?

I feel like I need a support group or something.
"We Saw The Originals" A Film Watcher's Group

This also applies for the news about that Strangers On A Train for teens or whatever.

Because it's a classic and it's fricking John Wayne and you don't want what he did to be overshadowed by Jeff Bridges and the brothers Coen, no matter how awesome they are?

I mean, that would be why I'd be furious.
