Haven’t done much with the reviewing, lately, since I’ve been busy with the work and the NaNoWriMo and the sleeping . . . oh, the sleeping . . . but I thought I’d post a few things here that I found on io9, because they are (mostly) AWESOME.
First, a PSA for an issue that concerns all parents: when to talk to your baby about Star Wars: http://io9.com/5691703/the-talk-when-is-it-time-to-talk-to-your-kids-about-star-wars
Then, College Humor lets us know what The Social Network would have looked like if it had been directed by Quentin Tarantino, Guillermo Del Toro, Michael Bay, etc: http://io9.com/5691586/what-if-guillermo-del-toro-directed-the-social-network
Also, I’m posting the link to the Red Riding Hood trailer here, but only because I’m a little disappointed in it, and I wanted to know what everyone thinks. When I first heard about the project maybe a year ago, I (perhaps foolishly) got it in my head that our new, big screen Red Riding Hood would be a little more kick-ass or something. Instead, the film is directed by the lady who directed Twilight, and according to this trailer, the main plot is Amanda Seyfried having sex. Sure, there’s a wolf attacking people. But mostly, it’s the sex: http://io9.com/5691742/red-riding-hood-trailer-explodes-in-a-woodland-orgy-of-sex-and-fur
Finally, if you haven’t watched it yet, BBC’s five-part series Dead Set is incredible. It’s funny, and it’s bleak, and I very much loved the ending. One image in particular has been stuck in my brain since yesterday. Also: there is gore. There is awesome, awesome gore.
Here’s the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQjq639WPiU
