funny like, ‘ha ha?’

Posted by bremblebeck on September 28, 2007

They’re remaking this film, Funny Games. More precisely, the guy who originally made this film, Michael Haneke [article] is remaking it, with people that’ll make him money. Tim Roth, Naomi Watts and, er, Tommy Gnosis. I don’t know if it’ll be any good. Definitely doesn’t look like an upbeat film. I think he completely re-shot it. Like exactly. Either way, the poster’s awesome-O.

Here’s the original 1997 trailer –

Here’s the new one. I think he basically just English-ified it.

It’s an interesting note. Altho’ the film’s storyline implies a lot of violence, little is on-screen. Stylistically, it’s a real winner. Pick-me-up it is most definitely not.

Here is a link to Tartan Films’ site where the film is featured. Disclaimer : if you decide to explore the Tartan Films site a bit, don’t – and I’ll repeat this – Don’t check out ‘Taxidermia’. If you know anything about disturbing films like ‘Irreversible’ and ‘Gozu’, this one’s supposed to blow them all outta the water. That’s not a film for watching, that’s a film for setting down and backing slowly away from. Again, don’t pursue ‘Taxidermia’.

introducing Clickety-Clack

Posted by bremblebeck on September 24, 2007

One of my 7,000 cousins, going by her nom-de-digital-plume, Everly Pleasant, has started a weblog that made me, for the very first time in my life, exclaim “Splendid!”. Check it out here for the charming, Pollyanna-esque erudicity (sic)…

I am become busy. Mas a luego.

P.S.
*Update*
There is a feature on IDRZ as well.

the awesome ‘Southland Tales’ trailer

Posted by bremblebeck on September 21, 2007

Click here for the first of the ‘Southland Tales’ trailers, by Richard Kelly, the dude who did ‘Donnie Darko’. Also, I knew there were a bunch of cool people in the cast, but I had no idea about the Lovitz.-

That’s what the kids these days call sick.
