Lots going on out there while I was traveling, so I thought I'd just throw them onto the pile for you:
- The critics awards have begun in a big way, and while MCN has their page, I'll probably find time to pull my annual recap together also.
- Jim Hill creates an AMAZING list of cameos and cross-references throughout Pixar's film history. For someone like myself who has been forced to watch Cars several hundred times, these are incredible. But... he didn't call out the cameo from the Apple car in the first race. It's just black and white, it wears the number 84, and it's only onscreen for a second or two.
- David Poland calls Nikki Finke "a piece of shit." Hee hee...
- Anne Thompson reminds us that George Clooney is brilliant: Why were films like Syriana and Good Night and Good Luck embraced by audiences while the more recent rash of political films have not been? "People like ambiguity," Clooney suggested, admitting that he had not seen all the films. "They don't want to be told what they should think."
