Vodka and Robots

Premiering tonight at the Sundance Film Festival, I'M HERE is a 30 minute love story about the relationship between two robots living in L.A.,  written and directed by Spike Jones, AND sponsored by Absolute Vodka. I guess robots get loaded too... although I already knew that.

You can find a trailer for it here.

Who am I to judge you Stanley?

Utah calling...

There are many reasons I wish I was in Park City right now: the Sundance Film Festival, the Slamdance Film Festival, jumping back and forth from hot tub to snowbank... and particularly for the world premiere of THE RUNAWAYS, the first feature film directed by Floria Sigismondi. Check out more picks over at Collider.

And I'm definitely intrigued by HESHER, the story of a 13-year-old boy and his father move in with their grandmother to pick up the pieces of their life after their mother's death. Soon the boy meets Hesher, a chain-smoking anarchist head banger who loves blowing things up. Together they might help each other.

First off, I'll watch anything with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in it, and secondly, it's directed by Spencer Susser, who you might know from his zombie short I LOVE SARAH JANE.

What was new(s)...

Happy New Year! OK, a little late for that, so what?! I'm not an early riser, sue me!
Here's some this and that I've noticed recently:

AVATAR makes all the money, which is pretty surprising for a re-boot of Disney's POCAHONTAS. I'm glad I got the full on IMAX 3-D experience, but otherwise I found it pretty forgettable, except for Michelle Rodriguez being fierce as always.

I enjoyed the Hell out of SHERLOCK HOLMES, it was exactly what I expected, a big gay Victorian action romp. Just don't tell Andrea Plunket, who holds the US copyright to the literary Holmes saga how gay it was, as she has threatened to pull the rights if a sequel were to further explore Holmes in an homoerotic light. That's too bad really, as I really enjoyed the 'married couple' dynamic that Downey Jr. and Law brought to the material.
The first rule of fight club is, don't discuss the man-love...

New York state of mind

I stumbled on this great thread of photos from New York City during the 1970's and yanked out a bunch. Check out the marquees!!!
