OPEN CONCERT: DAVI SING SINATRA TONIGHT IN LOS ANGELES
A message from our friend Robert Davi to the Big Hollywood Community:
My Dear Friends: I invite all of you to attend my record release party and free concert at The Grove in Los Angeles, tonight at 8pm.
Tell your friends and… get ready to SWING.
Should be a real treat. Don’t miss it. More here.
Smaller, independent kiosk operators plan to work around this by purchasing new movies at Walmart the same day they’re released in order to offer them up for rental — which begs a question. How do the studios stop Redbox from doing this?
Anyway, I can wait 60 days for crap. If they made it 90 days that would be even better.
And why isn’t the government looking into how ALL the studios make these decisions together? If Big Oil decided to get together and do something that would force us to pay more for a gallon of gas, you can bet the FTC would be involved.
How is this any different?
Hollywood has never quite been able to declare evil evil — you know, terrorism, attacks on Israel, Roman Polanski drugging and anally raping a 13 year-old girl. But buy a copy of “Avatar” off an illegal alien for five bucks and according to the L.A. –we read it so you don’t have to — Times:
A broad coalition of film studios, TV networks and entertainment industry labor groups has launched an education campaign to teach the public about the evils of piracy and prod their employees and union members to support an anti-piracy bill in Washington.
When does Occupy Hollywood begin anyway? Those 90210 welfare queens get more tax breaks than the George Soros-funded Media Matters.
EXCLUSIVE: ZACHARY QUINTO STILL GAY
Using the same anonymous source the corrupt MSM uses to tell them what they want to hear, Big Hollywood has been forwarded this completely false quote from Zachary Quinto:
The reaction to my coming out as a gay man has been overwhelming. When everyone thought I was heterosexual, the things I said weren’t treated as profound pearls of eternal wisdom and the things I did weren’t interpreted as the works of a holy man. But now when I say and do the exact same things, they are! People are even telling me the last two seasons of ‘Heroes’ didn’t suck! And so in order to keep this momentum growing, I’m here to announce that next week I’ll be coming out as “very gay” while I go into training to become “extremely gay.” But I want to assure everyone that once this happens, I will be a benevolent god — a merciful and charitable god. Unless, of course, you don’t do as I say. Then there will be thunderbolts.
‘Piranha 3D’ was one of the best films of 2010 and might be the only attempt ever made at making a cult film that actually succeeded. Just last week I saw it again on Blu-ray and loved it just as much. It really is a grinder masterpiece and an example of aiming for a target in tone and presentation and hitting the bullseye.
Can lightning strike twice? The trailer linked in the headline rates a good, strong maybe. Note the voice of the trailer narrator. Good stuff, though the special effects do look a little cheaper.
And I’m sure that by “double the D’s” they mean D-D-D-David Hasselhoff.
SCOTTDS’ EPIC LINK-TACULAR
LAST NIGHT’S SCREENING
“The Bickersons” starring Mitt and Rick.
CLASSIC PICK FOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20
9:45 PM EST: Southerner, The (1945) — A sharecropper fights the elements to start his own farm. Dir: Jean Renoir Cast: Zachary Scott, Betty Field, J. Carrol Naish. BW-91 mins, TV-G, CC.
Had this gentle, affecting story starred Henry Fonda or Gary Cooper instead of Zachary Scott (best known his role as the heel in “Mildred Pierce), it wouldn’t have improved this perfect film but it might garnered more of the respect it deserves as a classic.
A real gem you’ll be glad you found.
