Unfortunately the theatrical release is ONLY New York and LA. I will be in New York 4 days after it stops screening there. The intent is that you almost, but didn't quite get to see it in the theater and you so you might be more likely to spring for this ridiculous 5 DVD set. Its really disappointing to see something which is supposed to be important for artistic rather than commercial reasons getting used in such a manipulative way.

Oh balls, I actually hadn't heard that. I knew it was going to be a limited release, but not that limited. That is disappointing.

What are the dates? I might find myself in NY, although I imagine tickets will be nigh impossible to acquire.


Its at the Zeigfeld from October 5th until the 18th. Its also on in LA at the Landmark. I emailed Landmark and asked them why they couldn't distribute the film to all their national theaters (there is one in Atlanta) and their response was that "there probably isn't enough demand" but that my email was sent to the proper authorities.

If YOU'D like to see a wider release of Blade Runner Final Cut PLEASE email Landmark and let them know! If they get enough feedback perhaps they'll take a closer look at the market for this.

I happened to be in LA over the weekend and it was still running at the Landmark so I went and saw it at 1:50 in the afternoon. Goregous! Better than ever!

RE: Nominations List | 78th Annual Academy Awards | Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Noms are out.

Academy Awards® for outstanding film achievements of 2005 will be presented on Sunday, March 5, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland® and televised live by the ABC Television Network.

Also available at NYT with links to reviews, showtimes, etc.

From the AP overview:

The cowboy love story "Brokeback Mountain" led the Academy Awards field Tuesday with eight nominations. Three films were tied with six nominations each, "Crash," "Good Night, and Good Luck" and "Memoirs of a Geisha," though "Geisha" was shut out in the top categories.

"Munich," which had fallen off many awards analysts' best-picture picks after a lukewarm reception, scored well with five nominations, including director for Steven Spielberg. "King Kong," directed by "Lord of the Rings" creator Peter Jackson, earned only technical nominations, losing out in the major categories.

George Clooney picked up three nominations: as supporting actor for his role as a steadfast CIA undercover agent in "Syriana" and best director and co-writer for his Edward R. Murrow tale "Good Night, and Good Luck."

Whoa... Episode III wasn't even nominated for visual effects! I guess Hollywood really hates Lucas' guts by this point. It was nominated for makeup, however.

A Big Gorilla Weighs In
Topic: Movies 5:34 pm EDT, Oct 27, 2005

In hiring Peter Jackson, the Oscar-winning director of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, to remake the monster classic "King Kong," Universal Pictures took a daring leap, paying him $20 million to direct, produce and be the co-writer of the film.

With seven weeks to go before the movie's release, the risks are becoming clearer. After seeing a version of the film in late September at Mr. Jackson's studio in New Zealand, Universal executives agreed to release "King Kong" at a length of three hours.

Looking for the Candy, Finding a Back Story
Topic: Movies 6:32 pm EDT, Jul 16, 2005

From the outside, Willy Wonka's factory is a grim, imposing industrial edifice towering over rows of red-brick shops and houses - something out of Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" planted in the landscape of Charles Dickens's "Hard Times."

I saw it last night and rather liked it. The more I've thought back on the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder, the more I remember how disappointed I was when I first saw it (on video) as a kid, having read the novels. According to
Wikipedia's article, Roald Dahl hated it.

Wow ... Lost in Translation did really well! I'd recommend it if you haven't seen it. Also Master and Commander (see Tom's comments) and LOTR. But Pirates of the Caribbean?! I didn't see it though I heard it made Disney a lot of money...
