REEL GREAT READS
- The Ship of Fools (Roger Ebert’s Journal) – One of all-time favourite male movie critics, uh, ships one of our (or, at least Emily’s) favourite sick day/Sunday/everyday movies, the Celine Dion soundtrack-set epicness that is Titanic. (Don’t tell me I’m the only one anxiously anticipating the 3D release!)
- Inside the all-black (almost!) reading of ‘Reservoir Dogs’ (EW) Jason Reitman keeps staging these awesome-sounding, star-studded cold readings of classic screenplays (see also: The Princess Bride, The Breakfast Club). But we’re particularly intrigued by this one, which changes up the race of the cast of Tarantino’s ultra-violent first opus, subbing in Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Laurence Fishburne for Michael Madsen, Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel.
- An Illustrated Recap of What It Was Like to Watch The Vow (Vanity Fair) – A funny, illustrated review of what is admittedly an easy butt of jokes, The Vow.
- I Liked You Better Before: Movie Makeovers that Never Should Have Happened (Hello Giggles) – Yeah, really. She’s All That‘s Laney Boggs was so much cooler pre-makeover.
- Hollywood ate my novel: Novelists reveal what it’s like to have their book turned into a movie (The Independent) – For those into both lit and film, a look at what happens when a novel becomes a movie, from the authors themselves.
- This Means War– Okay, this rom-com starring Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, Reese Witherspoon and Chelsea Handler looks mighty lame. But we loved Reese enough to see Four Christmases, so I suppose we’ll see this too.
- The Rum Diary (DVD) – We never got a chance to catch this, the latest Hunter S. Thompson-inspired Johnny Depp flick, in theatres. And although it got semi-awful reviews, it looks kind of gorgeous. And we’ve had a girl crush on Amber Heard since All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
