Your Weekend Justice #150: Things Not to Marinate Your Keyboard With

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that can withstand anything: scorn, jokes about babies and taxidermy, sex, and even a beer in the wrong place. 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.

    Up (2009) – Movie Review

    Up movie poster

    Written by: Pete Docter & Bob Peterson, based on a story by Docter, Peterson and Thomas McCarthy
    Directed by: Pete Docter
    Starring: Ed Asner, Jordan Nagai, Christopher Plummer, Bob Peterson, Delroy Lindo

    My Advice: See it in 3-D by all that is holy.

    Carl Fredericksen (Asner) is reaching the end of his life. And the great adventure he thought his life would be turned out to be a completely different adventure, with fellow life explorer Ellie. But now that she’s gone, he’s a bit rudderless. That is until circumstances force him to A) rethink that whole original adventure thing and B) get out of town. Since he couldn’t bear to leave the home he shared with his wife, he’ll just have to take it with him…

    I always talk about the fondness I have for things that work on two levels. A recent example I bring up often is the book Coraline: exciting thriller for kiddies, even more of a nailbiter for adults. A more perennial example are the Looney Tunes cartoons, which can be enjoyed by kids but were made for adults and work perfectly on both levels.

    Disney Schedule Through 2012

    Walt Disney Pictures logo

    Disney has announced the ten animated feature films that make up their new release schedule through 2012. Plus some Tinker Bell direct to video bits. And you really don’t want the hoobah of the press release talking about how great it is and ooh aren’t we lovely. No, let’s cut straight to the list.

    Oh, wait. You do want to know this bit, though:

    Starting later this year with the release of Disney’s “Bolt,” all Disney and Pixar animated features will be presented in state-of-the-art Disney Digital 3-D(TM). Additionally, newly converted 3-D versions of the beloved classics, “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” are set to debut in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Films are not presently scheduled past 2012 due to the impending singularity, or as John Hodgman would call it: Ragnarok.

    That last part we had mentioned previously. And I’ll go ahead and tell you: Incredibles 2 is not on the list. Damn you, Disney. Damn you for breaking my heart. Again.

    Oh, one last thing–where is Chazzie-award winning director Brad Bird? Making a live action co-produced film for Warner Brothers and Disney/Pixar, apparently, so he’s not on the list. Come back, Brad! Bring me my Incredibles sequel! Please!

    Okay, list. What follows is trimmed from their press release. Our additions and comments are in italics.
