Snoopy vs. The Red Baron: A Real Dogfight

Snoopy Sopwith Camel

Apparently the FX budget for the live action Peanuts movie is, shall we say, sub-par.

Update: The original video, of an RC plane fighting an RC Snoopy-on-Doghouse has been taken down, but somebody took bits of it and made this...

Tom Waits and Iggy Pop Drink Coffee

Iggy Pop and Tom Waits

It's from Jim Jarmusch, of course. And you can find it on the DVD of Coffee and Cigarettes.

This is a lot like our staff meetings here, honestly enough. Except normally we're doing the roadside surgery in house.

Human Slinky Dance: They're Fun, They're a Wonderful Toy

Human Slinky

It's either like two refugees from the Muppets going apeshit or bits of your large intestine trying to play Dance Dance Revolution. I can't decide which.

A Herd of Catbuses

This is too cool. My Neighbor Totoro is one of the best animated children's movies ever. It's just damn good.

So good that it's inspired a bunch of folks to create their own version of the film's Catbus. Check out the photo gallery here.

Boris Karloff for Ronson Lighters: Have Your Own Torture Test

Even though apparently Ronson Lighters aren't around anymore (from what I can tell), I have this terrifying suspicion after seeing this that Karloff will rise from the grave to come after me because I don't own one.

Regardless: eat this, Geico cavemen.

Sliver (1993) - DVD Review

Sliver DVD cover art


Written by Joe Eszterhas, based on the novel by Ira Levin
Directed by Philip Noyce
Starring Sharon Stone, William Baldwin, Tom Berenger

Released by: Paramount.
Region: 1
Rating: Unrated
Anamorphic: Yes.

My Advice: Rent something better than it. Which should be pretty easy.

After ending her waste of a marriage, Carly (Stone) is ready to make some changes in her life. Part of this is getting a new high rise apartment. Of course, she gets her new place the way a lot of New Yorkers acquire real estate: by someone dying. In Carly's case, the previous resident jumped off her balcony. In fact, everyone comments how much Carly looks like her. But she doesn't have time to consider this since she has two new suitors in her life. There's Jack (Berenger), a self-important macho cop-turned-author, whose attentions she's not thrilled with and Zeke (Baldwin), a young hot game designer, whose attentions she's very thrilled with. Thrilled multiple times, if you know what I mean. Zeke pushes Carly's boundaries and that is exactly what Carly is looking for. Even when he reveals that the apartment building has been turned into Zeke's private reality TV network, Carly doesn't look away. But when the competition between Zeke and Jack for Carly starts getting a body count, she needs to take a hard look at these two men. And herself.
