Link roundup

1. I liked everything about Tron Legacy, except when the actors spoke and the entirely extraneous genocide discussion. Not sure why it's getting such negative reviews, especially from supposed geeky fanboys. What sort of movie were they expecting? However, it makes terrible, almost nonexistent use of 3D. James Cameron is clearly a genius. Also, I liked that when they couldn't figure out how to place Ducati logos inside the computer world, they started talking about how great Ducati was instead.

2. The Guardian:

WikiLeaks: Cuba banned Sicko for depicting 'mythical' healthcare system
Authorities feared footage of gleaming hospital in Michael Moore's Oscar-nominated film would provoke a popular backlash.
UPDATE: Or maybe that's totally wrong.

3. New Darwyn Cook auction at eBay - - he'll draw the character of your choice.


  1. I truly hope you were as lucky as we were, in getting some truly awesome 3D trailers before the movie.

    4 words - THOR IN THREE-DEE

  2. No, saw 4 lousy trailers: Mars Needs Moms (no boy wants to see a movie about saving his mom), Cars 2, Transformers, and Green Hornet (why aren't they getting grief over all the gay jokes?).

  3. No Pirates 4 trailer? Even our 35mm prints have them attached. Disney prob. would be none too happy to find out some theaters are passing on that.

  4. Nope, not at the Arclight in Sherman Oaks.
