"Widow" - Two days....

Me...sleepy......its like working two jobs over here :) I've got a small pile of movies waiting to be watched, including "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" ("Mr. Vengeance" was excellent, had some terribly creepy pier scenes involving a little girl so yay, more inspiration), "Lake House" (ugh, I know, but, time travel? There's a soft spot in me for "Somewhere in Time"), "The Notorious Bettie Page" (director Mary Harron of "I Shot Andy Warhol" which starred Lili Taylor, one of my favorite actresses), and the fifth season of Smallville (John Glover as Lionel Luthor, great acting there too)....wow, read all that slowly okay? :) .... in a few days I'll actually have time to kick back and relax, but not now....

...here's a cap from today......three shots left to get, plus some sounds, then the end credits tacked on, and some tests for small quality file size.....I plan to upload it to SMS sometime Saturday evening so it should be posted on Sunday....

I was just coming over to say, sleep sleep sleep.

Caps are looking great, you're doing great, we're all proud you've been working so hard. Can't wait to see it.

nye nye.

Damn you Shelley! How do you always manage to get here first? The other night I was first, but I couldn't connect because Blogger was experiencing some kind of meltdown (seems like YOU managed to get through hunky dory though!).

And Hey, Lili Taylor is a fave of mine as well! I actually sat through the atrocious Haunting remake just because she was in it.....

Keep going Jeffrey... only a little more sleep deprivation and you'll have something permanent and glorious to show for it.

Ever seen a nice little Time Travel classic called Time After Time? (I think that's the name... about HG Wells chasing Jack the Ripper into modern New York). It's actually a kind of sappy romance in spirit, but the acting is incredible (it ought to be with Malcolm MacDowall in the lead role).

Thanks folks!
YES! I liked that one too (Time After Time) I particularly remember the 'time passing' effect from the machine was very well done...I also sat through the pitiful Haunting remake for Lili Taylor....liked her in Say Anything and Dogfight too (River Phoenix, very sad)...she was all set to play Janis Joplin in a biopic but it fell through :( ...
there's also 'Short Cuts', she and Robert Downey Jr were great in that....plus Lily Tomlin and Tom Waits as an old married trailer park couple, good stuff....
Last week sometime I watched 'Sisters' with Margot Kidder from the early 70s, I'm on a Brian Depalma kick right now after seeing Black Dahlia (parts were brilliant but it was a bit long I think)....anyway, Sisters....about a murderous French siamese twin....Lois Lane, freaks, and a mental institution, what more could I ask for?...it was decent, very strange, very Depalma, one of his first films, you can see him developing his skill (thats what I love about first films) especially his really looooong shots (the subway scene in 'Untouchables', Carrie's walk home after the prom in 'Carrie')....definitely worth checking out on a rainy day...

Y'know, I should just start blogging here about all the movies I see...I end up running on in the comment section :)

holy cow, jeffrey! you're almost there! hang on, little tomato!

Lili was also in a cool episode of the X Files, and a little-known John Waters movie called Pecker featuring Edward Furlong. The funny thing about the name is, his family calls him that because of the way he eats... I don't think they're aware of the *other* meaning. And of course Mystic Pizza.

Hey, we might have to set up a theme song on your blog... Ramblin' Man!

I have a secret animation hot line into everyones blog. I can for sure hang back to give others a chance, I didn't mean to be a Blog Hog (hee, just coined that.) I just figured that if everyone jumps in with their encouragement that's what matters. I'm def not trying to best anyone as I'm the least competitive person I know (ha, I just won the least competitive competition!). I just know how incredible it is when I get each and every comment ov'r on mine, it's so validating. I may have a deeper need for that than most tho.

Darkstrider said...

Good answer. Somebody asked me that on the message board once, and my reply was "Didn't you know.... Strider is ALWAYS first!

BWWWWAAAHAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

...But yours was a good answer too. ;)ljzwudi

GL, I prefer little Potato :)
Shelley, I like BloggerHogger better :) and I am as needy as you :P I'm always happy to see comment emails when I log on....its not your fault Mike is slow, oooooooooooooohhh no I didn't.....:)

Saw Pecker awhile ago, when it first came out I think....I remember the drooling sugar-addicted sister....have you seen his more recent movie with Selma Blair? (I forget what its called...hold on I'll look....)

Ubatuber said...

"A Dirty Shame"...its on my queue...

Darkstrider said...

Haven't seen it, but I can watch anything with Selma in it.

Darkstrider said...

Or Salma.

The lights begin to go down as a hush draws over the excitedly murmering crowd. The heavy velvet curtain twitches, then begins to open smoothly. The smell of oily popcorn hangs thick in the air. Suddenly you wish you had used the bathroom as the commercials begin......
