MIRAMAX CLOSES

We all knew sooner or later it would happen, Miramax is officially gone. The death knell started ringing after Disney bought it and the Weinstein's left, but I can't help but feel a little sad. Was I hoping for a new Miramax film to come out? Nope, it's really just that Miramax was such a big part of my childhood.

The Crow was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and Clerks was the funniest thing in the world when I first saw it. Miramax made or distributed all the best movies in my early years, and I will always remember my Mom being furious that she let her kid talk her into taking him and a friend to see Pulp Fiction (apparently the gimp scene wasn't her cup of tea).

Really though I'll always remember the 1999 Oscars when Shakespeare In Love ran away with the best picture award, upsetting the instant classic Saving Private Ryan (I remember people being angrier about that than Bush stealing the Presidency a year later).

So, so long Miramax, you made us laugh, you made us cry... actually, all at the same time during that one scene from The Crying Game (you know what I'm talking about!)

THINGS WE LEARNED FIGHTING OFF THE PLAGUE

Man it's been a rough week in LA. Rain season is in full effect and AnnaMay and I have both been fighting off sickness. However you can always learn useless stuff while being sick, here's a few things we learned.

Our Man Flint killed a terrorist named Hans Gruber and blew up the Dollhouse.

AnnaMay and I just finished watching Book One of Avatar: The Last Airbender, just in time for these new banners to come out on Yahoo! Movies. Were both psyched, loved the teaser, and frankly I'm ready for M. Night to do a big budget movie where all the $ goes into visual effects and not to pay for him to write, direct, produce and be the co-star!
