The NeverEnding Strike
LA Times a writer who is done with the strike. (Is it just me or does it seem like the writers are beginning to bleed public support now that this has gone on so long, disrupting entire Hollywood benefiting things like The Globes as well as the many peripheral industries?)
Hollywood Elsewhere has a particular nasty quote. Will this strike ever end? Will everyone in Hollywood loathe each other before long?
Variety This title chills me "Globes Eclipse Shadows Oscar" ...as much as I hate the Oscars sometimes I also can't really live without them. I'm getting worried

Okay, this is totally unrelated but I have a question. I want to see 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days this weekend but I also want to hang out with my dad. I COULD cleverly combine the two and go see it with him, but I'd be reluctant if there was too much sex/nudity in it. I'm just wondering what kind of "adult" content is in the film? It wouldn't bother me normally, but y'know...awkward...

SPOILERS (?)

hmmm. i'm not much for the "adult content" warnings. it's very matter of fact and only for adults (harsh subject matter) but if i'm remembering correctly there is nudity but the only thing the camera doesn't look at is the actual sex.

highly discussable movie so depending on your relationship with your dad and how much you like to hash out art after seeing it,...

Catherine said...

Thanks. We're okay with harsh subject matters and have a good relationship, so I think we're going to see it tomorrow. Cheers

i'm getting slightly worried as well re: writer's strike & oscars. my hope is if this continues, they just delay the oscars until it's over....may, june....whatever. that way, we don't have to wait a whole year until '09 oscars.

If the Writer's Strike causes the axing of the Academy Awards the WGA will pretty much lose any respect they have left. Respect that is diminishing day-by-day.

It's all well and good for the writer's to want a bigger piece of the pie (I write for a partial living so I'm totally down with that), but now they're apparently picketing the parties! Like, I'm sure if a writer won an award they would like to put their picketing signs down and go have a glass of champagne, ya know.

Hye there Nathaniel...I'm probably a little too late but I do watch Torchwood. I LOVE John Barrowman. And I enjoyed him on his Doctor Who stint (both in season 1 and 3).
