Boy what a fun show we had this week! I actually made a boo boo about one of the movies I talked about during my show and made an incorrect reference...can you spot it boys and girls? More importantly, I played music from the following films:
Magic - Jerry Goldsmith - (1979)
Dan In Real Life - Sondre Lerche - (2007)
The Last Supper - Mark Mothersbaugh - (1995)
Flashpoint - Tangerine Dream - (1985)
Ri¢hie Ri¢h - Alan Sylvestri - (1994)
Get Carter - Roy Budd - (1971)
The Golden Seal - John Barry - (1983)
Chipmunks Adventure - Randy Edleman - (1987)
In other news, the MPAA has got a case of foot in mouth disease, but what's new right? They made a 30% boo boo about the effects of illegal downloading on the indusrty. They changed their sob story from 44% revenue loss caused by college students to 15%. That's a pretty fat chunk of percentiles, and a much smaller violin I'll play for them. (Full story)
Also, on a positive note, Guillermo del Toro is in talks with New Line and MGM to direct the Hobbit films. Yes, Films...why make one movie when you can split it in two and make twice as much money in DVD and ticket sales? Ugh. Regardless, I think del Toro will do just fine, as long as it's not as crappy as Blade 2, and as good as Pan's Labyrinth. Let's see how Hellboy 2 turns out, then we'll see if ole' Guillermo is getting too big for his britches too soon.
On a not so positive note, Stephen Sommers (who is responsible for the fantasiticly campy The Mummy movies) is still casting for his film adaptation of the classic cartoon G.I. Joe...and he just cast Duke. Care to guess who? Step Up's very own Channing Tatum that's who...this movie is going to be horrible. There might even be a hip hop dance routine with Duke and Scarlett I hear. Also there could be an MC battle between Destro and Snake Eyes. (Destro totally has it in the bag)
PS- Sundance announced the winners...check it out here.
