Asked whether the Alien or a Na'vi would win a fight, Cameron's answer was, "Sigourney (Weaver) would win."
Heh and duh!

Finally, I just wanted to draw your attention to a great reunion pic: Juliette Lewis and Robert DeNiro at the Tribeca Film Festival!


DeNiro showed up at the party for Juliette's latest pic Metropia (she's not in it -- sigh -- just voicework). I mean seeing these two together again is just bananas. The last time I saw them together Juliette was sucking on Bobby's thumb. Which was also bananas. In both connotative senses of the fruit.


At the risk of embarassing one of my best friends, I must ask that if you ever meet Nick Davis you demand to hear his Juliette/Cape Fear voice. It's so unnervingly spot on that the first time he did it for me it made me love both him and Juliette more. And I didn't think I could in either case! So while I'm spreading the link love, please note that Nick is still on his best actress tear having recently written up performances by Ann-Margret, Jane Wyman, Talia Shire and, most controversially, Maggie Smith. Read 'em.

I love you just for that link to Jonathan Groff. I'm just glad you're aware of his existence.

I was so jazzed to be linked, but now I'm just jealous Stale Popcorn thought of that great countdown instead of me.

I have to go take out my retainer for my phone-date with a serial killer. Mwah.

I don't remember her voice in Cape Fear so I imagined her voice in Kalifornia speaking those words :p

No one's ever going to beat Citizen Kane because no one has the balls to vote differently. (Don't get me wrong, it's a masterpiece, but it's such a cliched choice.)

Stale Popcorn's list is brilliant.
