just noticed this - Pharrell drops a Voltron reference in his smooth bit on You'll See, a track from Clipse's We Got It 4 Cheap, Vol. 1 mixtape. the dude has recently been revealed as being involved in producing a movie based on the Voltron animated series. ah, a bit of digging: Pharrell will be producing the score and soundtrack to the film (along as producing the film, or instead of?). definitely interesting.

ugh. director Jim Sheridan is the old Hollywood geezer checking out Scarlett's rack. just...ugh.

George W Bush - class all the way.

i'm actually really happy about the new NHL deal. it's quite a brilliant idea and i'm glad we'll get to see the teams get back on track this season. but -- the new logo is just shitty. grey and 'invigorated'? come on. ugly-ass, is all i have to say. way to win back the fans, NHL. this feels too much like pandering to non-fans. anyway. you suck. |

whoa!! Home Vision once again trumps Criterion's announcements by leaking the October releases.
[ the first four films will also be available as part of the REBEL SAMURAI: SIXTIES SWORDPLAY CLASSICS box set. ]

SAMURAI REBELLION Masaki Kobayashi, 1967
SWORD OF THE BEAST Hideo Gosha, 1965
SAMURAI SPY Masahiro Shinoda, 1965
KILL! Kihachi Okamoto, 1968
LE SAMOURAÏ Jean-Pierre Melville, 1967
THE WAGES OF FEAR (All-New Restored Special Edition) Henri-Georges Clouzot, 1953

psst -- the covers are all up. beautiful too. too bad they had to go with a motif on the four Samurai flicks; i think they should've done them all as individual titles. but hey, they look sharp.
