This week had a good variety, let's take a look.
Hard to believe, but you, technically, can't sing Happy Birthday. That's why a of restaurants, like the one I used to work at in college, have their own "birthday song." Christ, I hated that shit. Clapping hands and putting on some smile a few times a day. If it's a kid, I could like it. That's tailored for them. But some forty-something that probably couldn't care less in the first place? Nah...
Mr. George Clooney gives us a list of the 100 must-see movies from 1964 to 1976, the era that most belive filmmaking was at its most daring and ambitious. He plays it safe for the most part, most of those are great films you can't miss no matter what, but a few surprises on his list (to me) include: The Bad News Bears, Sleeper, The Longest Yard and The Party. All great films, sure, but they seem oddly out of place in a list that includes Alphaville and Kubrick. He's probably going for a well-rounded variety, I'm sure.
I don’t know if this is a new episode or not. It’s hard to keep track of these things, but it seems new from the quality standpoint. But it’s Roo doing what Roo does best.
Not to be outdone by Mr. Clooney, Edgar Wright gives us his ten favorite Criterion films. Nine of those are also some of my favorites, Le Samourai and Blow Out especially, the only one not being the only one I haven't seen: Head.
What? An SNL skit? And it's actually funny. The Harvey Firestein is the best.
Pretty damn beautiful photographs, if that's your think.
I've always kind of liked The Fly 2, but it's not without it's easiness to mock and it's nowhere as good as the original. A good video looking back at it.
Manliest videogame covers? Sure! Great stuff, and a hell of a lot of memories going through this article off of Cracked.
Just to bring attention to James Rolfe's daily video series for October. Like horror like me? These are fun videos to watch, and there's one every day. Pretty damn good deal.
