Los Angeles Film Festival 08

Dare I say The Mummy 3 looks…good?

HottieBoombaLottie
"Clueless doofus Ethan attempts to win the heart of high school hottie Madison Sweet, only to find himself in competition with his own brother."

Picture a cross between Napoleon Dynamite and 30 Rock. I'm surprised that Provo High School (Utah) allowed filming of a fake school shooting on its premises.


Dirty Hands: The Art and Crimes of David Choe
"Chronicles the artist's bizarre adventures and rise to fame."

Choe is one fascinating cat. You may have seen him searching for a dinosaur in Congo in The Vice Guide to Travel.

Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go
"Documentary follows four boys at a school where emotionally traumatized children who've been written off as lost causes get a last shot at fixing their lives."

Sounded better on paper.


Mirageman
"A strip club bouncer decides one night to don a costume and fight crime. Unfortunately, in real life, crime fights back."

Marko Zaror can fight, but he sucks at choreographing exciting action. The fighting felt tedious, like playing a crappy brawler video game. It's better than Kiltro, however.


Trinidad
"Documentary on Trinidad, Colorado, a rodeo-loving red state town that also happens to be the 'sex change capital of America.'"

If you've ever wanted to see what a penis looks like as a vagina…

Many of the men looked clownish as women. "Why?" I thought. To each his own.


Gunnin' for That #1 Spot

The end credits were full of typos.

Adam Yauch and Money Mark composed a theme song for Michael Beasley ("Beasley Is a Beast").


Wanted

Wesley's rampage in the textile factory evoked Equilibrium.

The trailer for Disaster Movie parodied the trailer for You Don't Mess with the Zohan. It also parodied Hancock, which at the time hadn't been released yet.


WALL•E

The "green"-selytizing felt a bit incongruous, and I say that as a treehugger.

Before the movie, a little boy wearing a USC hat walked past me and my first reaction was to push him down the stairs.

At Wall-E, we sat near a very large reclining woman with an enormous soda. Those who have seen the film will understand how eerie that is. [source]

WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU WANT A SEX ROBOT THAT'S GOING TO CHEAT ON YOU?
