Ghostbusters. Go see it. Really.


Toby is now having the time of his life because he has to decide if he's getting the Funko Pop Holtzmann or the Funko Pop Holtzmann in the Ecto-1.

(I also played him Julie Brown's "I Like Them Big and Stupid" on the way home in honor of Kevin.)

Q. So, did The Wolverine take the inspiration story that was originally published 20ish years ago and update the stereotyped Western vision of Japan it portrayed?

Aeon Flux

Watched Aeon Flux last night, and since I was watching it for the sets and costumes and art direction and not for what it laughably called a plot, I was well satisfied. And was happy to find the mini-documentaries on the sets and costumes etc. on the DVD extras, so all was well. and I could almost ignore that for the plot to work you had to assume that clones are second-generation copies with genetic memories of their original's life and not, say, twins. All you identical twins reading this? NOT REAL PEOPLE!

I did find it laughable that at the first, when Aeon was on a nighttime hush-hush Seekrit Mission to break into somewhere and do something-or-other (never quite figured it out), she found it necessary to wear a pure white outfit. Like you do, when you're trying to remain unseen at night.

And the twenty- and thirty-somethings on the council running the city? Were all too young and good-looking. I kept getting the unnerving feeling that the future was being run by male models.

But, as I said, if you're a costume and set geek, well worth watching.

Studio Ghibli has another trailer for their version of A Wizard of Earthsea.

Anyone on here with a TiVo-type thing recording those Ghibli movies I posted about that also has a way to put 'em on CD or DVD or something? I would LOVE YOU FOREVER if I managed to end up with a copy of Whisper of the Heart (showing this Thursday) and Only Yesterday and Pom Poko (showing next Thursday).

Cut-and-pasted from a friend's email to a mailing list:
Some few of you may have previously been aware that there were rumors that the next Ghibli film was going to be based on Le Guin's Earthsea. Well, it's no longer just a rumor.

Announcement blatantly copy-and-pasted from the Miyazaki mailing list:

Studio Ghibli has officially announced that their next feature film will be Gedo Senki (Gedo War History) [1], directed by Hayao Miyazaki's son, Goro Miyazaki. The film will be an adaptation of Ursula K Le Guin's "A Wizard of Earthsea," and will be released in the Japanese theatres in July 2006.

The Studio's official site has also undergone a revamp [2]. Details of the new film can be found there. There are also dedicated sections of production diary and director's diary. Goro Miyazaki has posted some comments on his father's opposition towards his work as a director.
