Your Weekend Justice #99: The Parcel at Hobo Lake

It’s Weekend Justice: the podcast that is never on the right side of the door, at least as far as it’s concerned. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

Stuff You Need to Know: Snoop vs. Bollywood

Snoop Dogg from Singh is Kinng

Other sites want to take a nugget of information you give a shit about and write 600 words about it: trouble is, that means you have about 550 words too many to have to read. We give you a barrage of news in nuggets that you can digest easily and get on with your day. You’re welcome. (Granted, we don’t know what goddamn day it is anymore, but that’s the sacrifice we make.)

  • Snoop Dogg has a cameo in a Bollywood musical. No, honest. The film Singh is Kinng opens August 7th in India. I love this bit: “In crimson Punjabi shirt and a turban, Snoop performs the titular musical number alongside star Akshay Kumar in a segment that was lensed in Chicago. The Long Beach, Calif.-based rapper and the Bollywood actor apparently hit it off so well that they went on a ‘kingly’ shopping spree for the Indian garb seen in the shoot.” Nice. And it worked, apparently: the soundtrack’s sold 5 million copies in two weeks. I can’t find their music video online but here’s a sixty second taste of the movie, if you’re interested. Note: Snoop does not appear in this clip… Source: Variety.

  • A thirty minute tape of The Beatles cutting up and also trying to record “I’ll Follow the Sun” is going up for auction on Tuesday with an expected final price of between £8,000 and £12,000. Which I think is a very conservative estimate. And if you read up on what the tape has on it, it sounds like a proto-Nuts on the Road, just with more actual talent.

    A Guide to What You Need to Know About “Bond 22”

    Okay, so James Bond 22 or Casino Royale 2 or Daniel Craig Stars in “Yeah, Betcha Don’t Think I’m a Pansy Now, Bitches” or whatever you want to call it (since there’s no final title yet) just kicked off production yesterday at Pinewood in London. As you might have gathered Craig is back, scribes Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Paul Haggis are back but director Martin Campbell (GoldenEye) isn’t. Instead, helming is Marc Forster (most recently, The Kite Runner and Stranger Than Fiction).

    Also new is bad guy Mathieu Amalric as Dominic Greene, which they tell us is “a leading member of the villainous organization introduced in Casino Royale“. SPECTRE, baby. Bring on SPECTRE. Hell yes.

    Anyway, I tried to find a vid or a picture that would really get across him as a villain, but considering he’s currently getting acclaim for playing a guy who can only communicate by blinking and can’t move the rest of his body, that’s sort of hard to come by. We’ll have to make do with this reaction shot, where he learned that Aishwarya Rai still hasn’t been cast as a Bond Girl.

    What can I say to that except “Dude, I know.”

    Pride and Prejudice (1996) – DVD Review

    Pride and Prejudice 1996 DVD

    Directed by Simon Langton
    Written by Andrew Davies, based on the novel by Jane Austen
    Starring Jennifer Ehle, Colin Firth, Susannah Harker, Alison Steadman, Benjamin Whitrow

    Features:

    • Jane Austen Biography/Bibliography
    • Talent Biographies/Filmographies
    • Behind-the-scenes featurette: “The Making of Pride and Prejudice”
    • Booklet with cast and crew reminiscences

    Released by: A&E Home Video.
    Rating: NR
    Region: 1
    Anamorphic: Yes.

    My Advice: Own it.

    Elizabeth Bennet, or Lizzy (Ehle), a feisty Jane Austen heroine, is one of five not-so-well-off sisters. When a wealthy bachelor, Mr. Bingley (Crispin Bonham-Carter) moves in next door, Mrs. Bennet (Steadman) is determined for him to marry one of her daughters. As her sister Jane (Harker) is seemingly being wooed by Mr. Bingley, Lizzy is facing the cold pride of his friend, Mr. Darcy (Firth). But things are not always as they seem, and Lizzy finds that her first impressions are not always as sound as she thinks them to be. The two girls, as well as the rest of their family, are thrown into uproar over the anxieties over marrying for love or marrying for more material considerations. Filled with vivacious characters and many a plot twist, this is a classic story beloved by readers for over two centuries.

    The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) – Movie Review

    The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) poster

    < ?php display_hreview_rating() ?>

    Written by: Oliver Parker, based on the play by Oscar Wilde
    Directed by: Oliver Parker
    Starring: Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, Reese Witherspoon, Frances O’Connor, Judi Dench

    My Advice: Matinee.

    Jack Worthing (Firth) lives out in the country, but sometimes has to get away to the city in order to check on his poor, always-in-trouble brother, Ernest. In actuality, Jack is Ernest–he just likes to get away to the city, especially to flirt with Gwendolen (O’Connor), the daughter of Lady Bracknell (Dench). You with me still? Okay, Jack’s–well, Ernest’s–friend in the city is Algernon “Algy” Moncrief (Everett), who discovers Jack’s/Ernest’s deception at the same time he discovers the existence of Jack’s eighteen-year-old ward, Cecily (Witherspoon). When Algy shows up in the country posing as Ernest, a mistaken identity comedy must, of course, ensue.

    It’s so refreshing to see more evidence that well-written words in the mouths of capable actors can pay off. First off, we must admit that some liberty was taken with Wilde’s play. Some. To my knowledge, the main thing purists might object to is a tattoo. However, for the most part, we never mind people straying from the source material as long as it is done to some purpose and it works. Well, the good news is that even an unexpected tattoo parlor is funny in this film. Which is good–because the thing is a comedy, after all. It’s also a comedic period piece/costume drama that manages to rise above the form and actually be a Merchant Ivoryesque flick with laughs for people who normally wouldn’t be caught dead watching such a film.

    Shakespeare in Love (1998) – Movie Review

    Shakespeare in Love poster art

    Written by: Marc Norman & Tom Stoppard
    Directed by: John Madden
    Starring: Gwyneth Paltrow, Joseph Fiennes, Geoffrey Rush, Tom Wilkinson, Ben Affleck

    My Advice: Don’t miss it.

    I’ll never complain about the plight of a modern writer again. Well, at least not this week. At least the SDI will never get closed because of the plague. Never expected the terms “plague” and “romantic comedy” to ever get together? Well, surprise. This is the best comedy of 1998, an absolute cinematic gem.

    Bill Shakespeare (Fiennes) is in the throes of writer’s block at the start of his career, completely at a loss. This is bad news for the owner of the Rose Theatre, Henslowe (Rush), who owes money to Fennyman (Wilkinson), and will probably get killed or worse if he doesn’t pay. There’s only one thing to do–write a play and quickly, and call it “Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter.” With a deadline approaching, they need a Romeo, and who should arrive but Thomas Kent, a virtual unknown who’s perfect for the part.
