Christina Linhardt: Voodoo Princess

By Gary Schwind, published on Apr 2, 2008

...brothels. I remember thinking the prostitutes were so beautiful. They’d wear black fishnets. All that influenced artistically what I do now. I do a lot of classical stuff, but it’s got this circus/red light spin. I remember there was a man, Curt Siodmak, he did the original Wolf Man movie. He was in his nineties when we knew him. When I was a little kid, he asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up. I said to him, “A prostitute.” When I was thirteen, I wore fishnets and leather miniskirts: a very Rocky Horror look.I remember reading one time that Dolly Parton was... (more)

The Smelly Truth About Bathroom Advertising

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 1, 2008

...– pens, hats, sunglasses, towels, even body parts– and the ad specialty industry is operating at an all-time high.

Then, you have all of the “conventional forms of advertising” -- TV, radio (both terrestrial and satellite) print publications, the Internet, movie theaters, billboards, bus boards, ads on shopping carts, on the backs of receipts, on public transit and even in the bathroom. That’s right – most of us have probably seen it – restroom advertising has become commonplace in every city throughout the world.

The Broo Elite Eight - Getting To A Final Four

By Glenn T, published on Mar 31, 2008

...award winner, just name a few). Hey, Ed used to write jokes for Sinbad! Sinbad!!! Just the idea of Ed penning a monologue about dashikis and afros tickles me beyond belief. Steven has an acting career that makes me overwhelmingly envious. His lone acting credit is a stint in one of his own movies as “Carny Freak”… honestly, how can you not appreciate the moxy of a man who casts himself is his own production with such a self-aggrandizing character!? I have a ridiculous amount of respect for both of these talented writers. One one hand, you’ve got Ed, who... (more)

The Broo Deathmatch Sweet Sixteen Results

By Glenn T, published on Mar 28, 2008

...late to save his tournament life – thankfully it looks as though he’s still agreed to read along and provide the witty, fight-themed color commentary that only he is capable of. Finally, I’ve inspired a wide variety of reactions, from outright obsequeousness to aggressive movie quoting, and from reactionary article ranking to comment firestorming. In the end, I’m quite glad I did it.

Now enough of my silly babbling, here are the results of the sweet sixteen matches as we get down to eight writers:

August Rush & You...

By Show Time, published on Mar 24, 2008

This isn't a review of the movie AUGUST RUSH but there are elements in the film that are important to my story. First of all, the boy's grandfather put him up for adoption at birth. He lied to his daughter and told her that the baby had died. The boy's father didn't even know she was pregnant. The boy's mom thought he was dead and his father didn't know he even existed...Got it? Ok...but the boy insisted that they would eventually find him IF he followed "the music" that for him seemed to be everywhere. There's a lot more to the movie but for my purposes, the point is...AUGUST didn't give up... (more)

Broo Deathmatch - Second Half First Round Results...

By Glenn T, published on Mar 24, 2008

...Hassassin has not one, but two articles with more than seven thousand hits (top that, J&T!) and is the only other person I have heard of who liked “Stranger Than Fiction” as much as I did… this still leaves me as the only person to actually have cried during the movie – but I still feel a little less alone. But then there’s Joe, who has, hands down, the best “A word about…” section on Broo… and who is not only a Clippers fan – but will also admit it in writing. Despite a self-imposed sabbatical – Joe still... (more)

With Butter...or Without...

By Show Time, published on Mar 22, 2008

...have a POSITIVE financial influence on just about every other industry in Georgia.

Think about it! The film industry needs SUPPORT from hundreds, thousands of OTHER types of businesses. Cars, paint, lumber, food, hotels, labor(skilled & unskilled). Whatever it takes to make a movie, they'll buy it from other Georgia/Atlanta businesses. For the writers, actors, actresses, tech people, producers, directors..they can stay home and do what they do best...and believe me when I tell you, SOME OF THE BEST ARE RIGHT HERE IN GEORGIA.. Alright, I've said what I came to say..FOR ... (more)

Bamboozled - movie review

By DLFerguson, published on Mar 21, 2008

The last credit we see at the end of BAMBOOZLED is a dedication to Budd Schulberg. It’s a dedication that I found most appropriate because Budd Schulberg wrote the screenplay for “A Face In the Crowd”. A movie I’ve seen maybe eight or nine times and I still see new things in it every time I see it. There’s a lot of “A Face In The Crowd” as well as “Network” in BAMBOOZLED. All three movies should be watched together as thematically they’re the most scathing of indictments on the dangers of television ever committed to film. They’re all satires, they’re all comedies, they’re all dramas and they’re... (more)

Jaws

By DLFerguson, published on Mar 17, 2008

I headed into the den with a 3 liter of Coca-Cola, a bag of potato chips the size of a Dickensian urchin and a dozen Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. My wife Patricia knows the signs well and asked me what movie I was going to watch. “JAWS” I reply. She shook her head slightly and said; “How many times have you seen that?” I really couldn’t answer her. I know that I saw it during its original theatrical run and I most recently saw it again the day after I heard Roy Scheider passed away. In between, I really couldn’t say. Maybe nine or ten. But... (more)
