A Few Good Things

Nothing substantial today, just a few quick links to toss your way. First and foremost, if you’ve been living in a cave somewhere, I present to you the Indiana Jones IV trailer!

That action sequence that starts at about 1:05 had me cackling gleefully. Pure, classic Indy moment right there. If the whole movie can feel like that, then this is going to be great. Of course, I also saw a lot of things that looked very CG-ish and I thought they said they weren’t going to go that way. Potentially a very minor quibble, possibly a much larger problem. We’ll just have to wait and see.

On a far less serious note, here are some classic films dubbed with goofy voices. Or maybe it’s a very serious note, if you consider this sort of thing blasphemous. Actually, the only really effective one here is the first one, a scene from Casablanca. The rest isn’t nearly as amusing. Particularly with this scene from Singin’ in the Rain, changing the voices kind of defeats the purpose.

Meanwhile, IFC.com has published the first part of a guide to one of my favorite franchises of all time. That’s right, I’m talking about Planet of the Apes. What a great series . . . and the article seems to be doing them justice in just the right degree. Check it out.

We’re one week out from Oscar night, and I found myself (for no particular reason) at Diablo Cody’s MySpace. Guess who she thinks should win the award? Hint: A quote at the top of her page reads, “If I have a milkshake, and you have a milkshake…”

And that’s about all I have just at present. Gotta run, busy times.
