Once More Into the Link

I have barely been on the internet these past several days and sadly, I can't do much today either. Hopefully pre-holiday I'll get some capsule reviews up. So, this morning I've quickly scoured the 'sphere to offer up some linkage to get you thru (...should you need distraction. Lord knows, I always do)

there's no people like show people
Ellen Burstyn is mixing her pills again. Here she is mouthing off about how Broadway "sucks" and TV has destroyed the movies. Hee.
Man With Towel I love that my movie meme is going to places I've never been. And this one is hilarious. But hey, nobody has tagged me to answer my own meme yet ;)
Cinematical on tentpole schedules for 2007 & 2008 (yeah)
Stranger Song "New Blue Eyes" -- on Casino Royale
pfangirl "One Sexy Mother" on 2007's most inspiring event: The Return of PFEIFFER.

"what about me?"
Vote For Me if you haven't already, please vote for the film experience at the Verve Weblog Awards. Polls close soon.

not about movies but worth a read
Artifacts on "The Christmas Rush" Sex & The City, entitlement, shopping, and more...

Oscar shortlist for Best Documentary Feature
The films in contention for the coveted shortlist are: Iraq in Fragments, An Inconvenient Truth, My Country, My Country, The War Tapes, The Ground Truth, Deliver Us From Evil, Jesus Camp, Shut Up and Sing, The Trials of Darryl Hunt, Blindsight, Can Mr. Smith Get to Washington Anymore?, Jonestown: The Life and Death of People's Temple, Sisters in Law, Storm of Emotions and An Unreasonable Man.

Yes, it's a whole lotta Iraq. The Gore film (...Truth) is excellent and unfortunately the only one I've seen. I'm too scared of Jesus Camp (personal childhood brainwashing reasons) but I do hope to see Shut Up and Sing soon. [the list I got from reel fanatic]

I've seen two of the 15 documentaries but I have to say I've never seen a film like "The War Tapes." I interviewed Deborah Scranton about the process she had to go through in bringing us "The War Tapes." Check it out.
