Holy. Shit. Suspiria. By far one of the best scary movies I have seen in a very long time. Not sure how I'd not seen that one by now but daaaamn. The set designs were fucking brilliant. The lighting- trippy and spot on. The Score! So good. Apparently it was done by "Goblin" (Italian Progressive Rock, anyone?) and there's a hillarious music video in the special features of the DVD. If you haven't seen that shit already, dooo it.
I recorded a commentary track to be downloaded, put on an ipod and listened to in the theater as you’re watching Looper. This is an odd thing I tried with Bloom, and have gotten a few requests for it again, so here it is. It is totally different from the commentary track that will be on the Blu/DVD, a bit more technical and detailed. Needless to say, this is NOT to be listened to on a first viewing, or before you’ve seen the film. Also, please work it so that a glowing screening is never out of your pocket during the movie.
Listen to the introduction before heading to the theater, it has instructions. And lemme know how it works.
I really hope more people start doing this. I'm a huge sucker for commentary and it's an awesome way for movie-types to get people to go out and see your movie again.

Frankenweenie FTW!!! Aww, I loved it. Old school Tim Burton, black and white stop motion, at it's finest. Tons of new characters (a hillarious Asian kid, a creepy girl whose obsessed with her cat and Edgar is even funnier than in the oringal). I laughed, I cried, I had a shit eating grin on my face pretty much the whole time. I was a huge fan of the short film and I worried this wouldn't live up to the orginal but it totally did. Also, Catherine O'Hara is my idol. I didn't see it in 3D but it still looked great.
They were giving away free posters (a black and white sketch- pretty cool) because it's opening night- I picked up an extra poster for the Abbott household, I'd be pretty shocked if you guys didn't enjoy it.

I appreciate it, but in all honesty I am completely and utterly done with Tim Burton. I turned Alice off after 25 minutes and I didn't even bother with Dark Shadows.
You know the dude is scraping the bottom of the barrel when he has to resort to re-making his own damn films. The original Frankenweenie was essentially perfect; that he would dig it up and try to re-animate it (fa fa fa) is offensive.
Every three months, I'm in the mood to watch a movie, but every time I bring up the available movies On Demand, I recognize zero titles. I have no recollection of you guys talking about this movie, and thought I would immediately be chastised for liking it.

Unbelievable performance by tiny tot Quvenzhané Wallis. I haaate child actors, I just never buy it. But this little girl was incredible. I don't understand how someone so young (proabably 7-8 while filming) was able to portray such deep, intense emotion. She absoultely deserves a nomination, you've gotta see this performance.
