    32 Days of Halloween VI, Day 31: Setting Horror to Music

    The Fly: The Opera

    So the news that a House of Wax musical from Tim Burton may have been in the works got me thinking about the drive to have the stage added to the Law of Relative Development…since practically everything is being prepped for a stage production these days. And I decided to go exploring. We’ve already talked about Carrie and Aliens on ice for example.

    We’ve also mentioned before The Fly: The Opera…the opera adaptation of the Cronenberg film which Cronenberg himself directed and Howard Shore wrote the music for. That was 2008…and they’ve never released a cast album. Back then there weren’t really any videos of the songs…but here is a German documentary where they basically take you through an abridged version of the entire show. It looks bloody mental. Suggestion: skip forward a bit and then watch from about fifty minutes in on…because how many opportunities to you get to see a baritone Seth Brundle in full stage-Fly gear entering while crawling on the ceiling upside down? Oh, and singing all the while?

    Stuff You Need to Know: Marvel Cinematic Universe Boxed Set to Come With Light-Up Soul of Marsellus Wallace

    A primer for these posts: they’re to keep you up to date on what’s happening in the world of pop culture. Just the highlights and such, because the market on paraphrasing press releases is more than taken. Enjoy.

    Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One Blu-Ray Limited Edition

  • The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One boxed set just got a great deal sexier. On September 25th, it’s coming in a briefcase with a replica of the Cosmic Cube that actually glows. I mean…Jesus Christ, people. It also comes with an exclusive bonus disc. You can pre-order it here.

    Wayhomer Review #101: A Dangerous Method

    Michael Fassbender and Viggo Mortensen from A Dangerous Method

    *

    Episode #101 for A Dangerous Method, in which our protagonist shows how fair he is by praising Viggo, worries for the safety of Keira Knightley and is temporarily thwarted by a dumpster.

    *–Yes, this is lower than I was considering while being filmed. But upon reflection, I think the movie fails on multiple fronts. As a glimpse into the history of psychoanalysis, it fails because I think I know less about psychoanalysis now than I did before going into the cinema. As a glimpse into the life of Jung, it fails because he’s such a dick I feel like I wasted my time glimpsing it. And as a cohesive narrative it fails because of the weird jumps I relate in my review. And as a triangle (of some kind) between the three main characters, it fails because Jung is not just a prick–but an out-of-left-field whackjob prick–that I wish one third of the triangle would have wandered out of the film and thus made it a lot more enjoyable. Anyway, just wanted to explain.

    Your Weekend Justice #92: Giant, Smoking Crater

    It’s the podcast that crashes and burns, killing everyone aboard. It’s Weekend Justice: the podcast that has been known to spontaneously combust while carrying a truckload of baby seals and kittens to the Safe Zone. This week’s episode we contend with all manner of technical difficulties. Plus everyone sounds like they’re dying, thus making it even more wrong and unsafe than usual. You have been warned.

    Weird S— Round-Up

    Hello, all. Wolven here–and I’m bringing you a curatorial collection of some recent or upcoming events, films, books, and articles which trip the edge of the strange and downright weird. I hope to make a kind of regular feature, but I make no promises; only vague assurances which leave you to wake, uncertain, in the dark hours before dawn, sweating, wondering at the unknowable capriciousness of the cruel mocking laughter of a seemingly adversarial universe, only to realise that you, yes you

    Sorry. Got away from myself for a second, there. Anyway, let’s get started, shall we?

    32 Days of Halloween IV, Day 23: The Brood

    The Brood

    Day 23 has become our Official Day of Evil Children, although you wouldn’t know that if you were watching this trailer for 1979’s The Brood, from David Cronenberg. Seriously, if you know the film, you will know less about what’s going on with it after watching this trailer.

    Why do we even present it to you? It’s a perfect example of how, back in the day, trailers could be even worse than some of the ones we see now. And how you can spend three minutes telling people…nothing.

    Previously, we enjoyed a trio of evil children trailers and in 2008, we had the two …of the Damned film trailers.

    Stuff: New Actors Playing Peter Parker, Jung and Freud – But Not in the Same Film, Mind You

    Andrew Garfield

    There’s a lot of entertainment news going on. You honestly don’t need to know most of it. And the bits you do need to know, you don’t need to know that instant. Rather than write up a bunch of individual posts you have to read, here’s one post with everything. Boom. Done. Enjoy.

  • Amazon’s deal of the day is for both seasons of Flight of the Conchords plus a CD for $26.99, which is 55% off the normal price. Today only and while stocks last. So. There you have it. Find that here.
  • When you hear that Cronenberg is directing Viggo Mortensen in a film called A Dangerous Method, you’re probably not guessing what comes next: that it’s a love triangle featuring Jung and Freud as characters. If you want to see Mortensen and Michael Fassbender as Freud and Jung, check out the pics here. Also in the film are Keira Knightley and Vincent Cassel. It’s due out next year.

    Stuff You Need to Know: If Ned Gets Involved in Blackest Night, Consider Me On Board

    San Diego Comic-Con happened this weekend. We, like you, are trying to pick up the pieces. We’ll break out the Shop-Vac and let you see the results. You just relax and have an espresso.

  • So here’s the trailer from Comic-Con for the upcoming Starz mini, Spartacus: Blood and Sand (which we warned you about previously). Which is cool, as long as you understand it appears to be Zack Snyder‘s Gladiator.

    Direct link for the feedreaders. Found via TV Squad.

    Stuff: Ernest Borgnine, Acting Machine

    Ernest Borgnine
  • Jordan Ladd and Sally Kellerman will star in The Wishing Well for the Hallmark Channel. Do you need to know that? No. What you need to know is that also on board is Ernest Borgnine and this will be his 200th movie. He was in The Black Hole. He was in The Wild Bunch. He was in The Dirty Dozen. And if that wasn’t enough, he was co-pilot of Airwolf. Ernest Fucking Borgnine, ladies and gentlemen. 200 movies to his name, still working. Hell yes. Source: Hollywood Reporter.
  • Absolutely Fabulous is going to attempt to be Americanized. Fox is working on it. Jennifer Saunders is on board as one of the executive producers. It will be based in L.A. “but retain the basic template of the original, revolving around the friendship of two boozy, over-40 best friends who are desperate to stay hip and youthful and who carry on under the disapproving eye of Edina’s teenage daughter, Saffy.” You may commence betting whether the pilot ever airs and how many episodes it will last…startiiiing…now. Source: Variety.
  • Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland has its queens: Anne Hathaway is White, Helena Bonham Carter is Red. Not bad. Source: Hollywood Reporter.
