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.

Star Trek Beyond Trailer #2 (2016) | YouTube
I watched it with the sound off, which is the best way to appreciate Abramsverse Trek, and was satisfied. Then I watched it with the sound on and HOLY SHIT they might actually have made a good Star Trek movie. At the very least, they seem to be developing their own plots. (You just know that Pegg was responsible.) My default policy, as always, is cautious optimism.

Eye For Film: Tataouine threatened by Isis
If all of that murdering civilians wasn't bad enough for you, then Isis have finally gone TOO FAR. "The line must be drawn here! this far, and no further", cry a million geeks, rising from their chairs in anger, then immediately sitting back down, panting heavily.

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.

So How Do You Pronounce "R'lyeh", Anyway? - Strange Company
"[...]a right bastard to pronounce the magic chant – as my actors discovered. But that’s another story", says Hugh. He's quite right, and perhaps I shall tell it one day.

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.

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."

William Gibson's original draft screenplay for Alien 3
A touch preachy at the end and NOT ENOUGH RIPLEY. Nonetheless I would watch the shit out of this.

Hahahah. /Magazines/ for sale. Made out of pressed wood pulp, no doubt. Some interesting artistic design here, but I wonder how much of it was visible on the big screen.
