fantastic fest

You guys! I went to Fantastic Fest last weekend! True, I was only there for 2 days with a daytime badge, so I missed just about every single huge premiere. AND YET! I had an amazing time, saw incredible films, hung out and sang karaoke with celebrities, and I can’t wait to go back next year! Let this be a lesson to you, friends. You can totally do Fantastic Fest with no money and no time. It’s doable!

So I’m not going to get into the parties/celebrities aspect of it, even though that’s definitely a significant part of the festival, just because I know my bestie poshdeluxe will be doing  a far more thorough job of that very shortly. I’ll be sure to link to her FF post as soon as it’s up, and in the meantime, I’m going to stick to the movies!

Extra! Extra! Marla's headed to Fantastic Fest!

 And I’m SO! EXCITED! about it! 

gandalf and magneto 

Sir Ian McKellen continues to win my heart, again, some more, by attending the gay rights anti-pope rally wearing an insanely bad-ass custom version of the official “Some people are gay. Get over it.” shirt. 

superman 

Guillermo del Toro has turned down an offer to direct the Superman reboot. I think I’m disappointed about that, but possibly relieved. It’s confusing up in here! 

red state 

Oh yeah! The utterly delightful John Goodman has joined the cast of Kevin Smith’s horror flick Red State, thereby increasing my interest significantly. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Insert Clever Headline Here!

 Hello all! Thanks to the delightful Reverend Jon for subbing last week. Let’s get to it! 

 

Movie titles keep getting dumber and dumber, to my infinite delight. 5nal Destination is going to rock my gleefully mocking/secretly enjoying ass off!

The international trailer for Let Me In looks like the shit just shit. Even Hit Girl can’t save this one! Check out the original,  folks (titled Let the Right One In, from Norway). It’s easily accessible from your friendly neighborhood Netflix account. Continue reading

I hope you all were able to enjoy a labor-free Labor Day! Yeah? Now get to work! This News Day Tuesday is serious business!

The Host 2. I’m not sure I’ll see it, but at least it’s not infuriating me like the American remake is.

Sooooo much sequels-and-remakes news in this NDTD; prepare yourself. 30 Days of Night.

And I’ve been a manic little Marla lately, so this’ll be a quickie!

As we all know by now, Ryan Reynolds has won the role of Green Lantern, beating out Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto (really? Leto? No.). Fear not, lovers of hard-hitting journalism—I will find many, many more excuses to post pictures such as the above in the context of this news.
