Well — that major award-winning movie The Garbage Pail Kids comes out on DVD today. Make sure you rush out and pick up a copy ….
In other news … Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard is indeed going to be made into a movie — starring Glenn Close and …. Ewan McGregor. He will be perfect for it. Her … well. Just cuz she won an award doesn’t mean she’s all that. Vocally, she’s moosh. Though, truthfully, the role is fairly vocally demanding. Betty Buckley would have probably been my ideal cast, tho I don’t know she could really deliver the role on screen vocally. Glenn Close is just psycho which makes her pefect for the role of Norma Desmond. I fear for it … and I wonder if it will be in black and white like the original. It’s supposed to be ready for Christmas 2006.
Also, don’t forget that RENT is coming out this November. You can see the trailer … here.
I went to see this movie called Mysterious Skin last nite with my friend Jaime. OMG, that was one of the most disturbing movies I’ve ever seen. It was very provocative. Very sad … dealt with things like gay rape, child molesation, gay hustling, emotional abuse — but it wasn’t until the end of the movie that it seriously delivered that draw-jopping issue, which I’m not even going to mention here for fear of the search results I may garner. It left me feeling kind’a dirty, but also like i wanted to curl up with someone (in the fetal position, prolly) and just be held. Not that that happened, of course, but still — was just a weird movie. I don’t recommend it simply because of the after-feeling. (It WAS well-acted tho.)
