Armageddon vs. Deep Impact: 20 Years Later | IGN
I'd have to watch it again to be certain, which I have no inclination to do, but I recall DEEP IMPACT being dreadful mawkish bullshit. ARMAGEDDON, though flawed, at least was fun.

Regionalism in Disney Animation: Pink Elephants and Dumbo | Mark Langer | JSTOR
h/t @JuliaGalef. That total big-lipped alligator moment in the middle of <cite>Dumbo</cite>? (I adored it, but I'm told it's been the source of most children's nightmares since 1941.) Apparently there was a minor coup at Disney halfway through production, after Walt wandered off to do management things, allowing two directors from the subversive East Coast animation school to take charge and insert bits. The East Coast school do the weird stuff involving sex and drugs and rubber skellingtons dancing alongside a rotoscoped Cab Calloway, as opposed to the West Coast school who do princesses in floaty dresses acting as aviary perches for flocks of highly choreographed songbirds. I think the film is much improved as a result.

Blade runner 2049 teaser announcement piece debuts | EW.com
I gots concerns about: a) the prevalence of teal and orange, b) the lack of Vangelis. My default policy, as ever, is cautious optimism. Because that worked out so well for Prometheus.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Movie Review from Eye for Film
"There's a man, it's pretty safe to assume his name is Max, and he's being chased by a lot of crazy-looking people in fast cars with pointy bits on. This is such a strong start that the plot doesn't feel much need to deviate from it over the course of two hours. This is an excellent decision." All right, that's enough. Sign me up.

Our RoboCop Remake
Now /this/ is how you do a remake: get fifty independent filmmakers and groups to do one scene apiece, each in their own key, of course, until the whole place is just soggy with nostalgia. Stay tuned for the brilliant contemporary ballet rendition of scene 18. And lots of dick jokes.

Death Knight Love Story
Yes folks, it's finally out! Featuring top-of-the-line motion capture technologies and starring BRIAN BLESSED, Joanna Lumley, Anna Chancellor, Jack Davenport, and, very briefly, most-popular-text-to-speech-voice-on-the-Android-marketplace Paul A J Hamilton. Possibly the decade's finest World of Warcraft fan film. Five years in the making and free to download. Did I mention it has BRIAN BLESSED as the Lich King? You know you want some of that.

In defence of the RoboCop remake (with vegetables)
"[...]we've received a very strongly worded letter from legal people working on behalf of MGM and CPII. Apparently, at least one of the promotional images that we've used in our generally positive reporting of the RoboCop remake has constituted "copyright infringement[...]".
We are not sure how long we had to comply."
