Would you like fries with your strip?
Another weekend come and gone. I hope you've been doing exciting things! I've been walking around my fair city, and enjoying what I've been told is actually pretty nice weather. But when I'm not walking around or reading the longest book in the world, I've been scouring the web desperately to find something that will amuse our readers (also known as Christiana and John).
In the tradition of films like Six String Samurai (which Jason may remember as "naptime") comes another movie about Elvis worshippers. 3000 Miles to Graceland features the unlikely combination of Kevin Costner, Kurt Russell, Christian Slater, Ice T, Courtney Cox, and Bokeem Woodbine (some of you may remember him as the...self-absorbed...hitman from The Big Hit). If that doesn't get you, let me say this: Elvis impersonators robbing a casino. Hit the trailer here.
Now click here. For more information about that, check out its website.
And something else in a similar vein. These fellows have ingeniously managed to combine two of my favorite things: dubbing and Star Wars. Definitely check out the trailer as well as the actual episodes. I've participated in some dubbing in my time (actually, I played George Lucas...it's a very long story), and it's simply some of the most fun I've ever legally had. And all we had to record sound was a dictation tape recorder, so it was "challenging" to say the least. I had intended to be involved with another production this semester, but sadly, being in Europe is an excellent preventative measure.
Another tidbit picked up on the Anime and Movie related news sites is that animated classic Akira will not only be making its way to DVD sometime later this year, but will also be re-released into theaters sometime this spring. This is becoming a trend in the film industry, where DVD releases of older movies are heralded by theatrical re-releases (Superman is getting the same treatment).
Hit the forums where the latest topics are the Lord of the Rings trailer, and McGruff vs. Smokey - Only One Can Leave Alive.
I'm back Wednesday with columns. Take it easy.
