‘Carrie’

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way to Sherman Oaks, CA for a special screening of the 1976 Brian de Palma film Carrie (based on the novel by Stephen King) because the movie is one of my fave horror films and I’d never had the opportunity to see it on the big screen before. The only time I’ve ever watched the movie was on TV, fully censored. Carrie, for me, is one of the great horror films that showcases a pair of the most heinous villains of all time (a deranged mother and a vile mean girl) and one, horribly abused protagonist — Carrie White (played by the amazing Sissy Spacek). I am so glad that I got to see the movie on the big screen, in all its uncensored glory. More »

How Have We Not Discussed Michael D. Ratner And ‘The 30 Year Old Bris’?!

One of my new fave directors is about to blow up!
Because circumcision humor never gets old

As you all know, I spend a good portion of my life falling in love with new indie movies, and sharing my faves with all of you. This year I had an amazing experience during the Tribeca Film Festival, and I’ve been meaning to tell you all about one film in particular that stuck with me. Michael D. Ratner directed this hilarious short called The 30 Year Old Bris, and I absolutely fell in love. Now, this is a big week for Ratner (who I’ve kept up with since I interviewed him during Tribeca) and his Emmy-winning production company One Big Ball Entertainment (you know you love that name) because they have officially signed with Relativity Sports and have some exciting new projects underway. Check out the teaser trailer above, and click inside for more deets on one of my new favorite directors!

Watch: This Red Band Trailer For The Film ‘Dear White People’ Is Certain To Get People Talking

"You're invited"
Race Relations

On October 17, the film Dear White People will open in select cities and as you can see in this red band trailer (the NSFWness comes in the form of language, btw) the movie will very likely get people talking … which is the intent. What happens when a group of Caucasian students host a party that is African American-themed? Well, this movie will show you. I’ve been hearing about this movie but this trailer is the first I’ve seen of it. I can’t tell if I’m genuinely interested in the story or if I’m just curious to see how these racial stereotypes will be handled in this feature film. Have a look above and see what you think about Dear White People. Does this look like a movie that you would like to see in theaters?

Happy 4th Birthday Audrey, Happy 55th Birthday ‘Sleeping Beauty’

The TV Guide

I’m quite certain that it will come as absolutely no surprise to any out there AT ALL to learn that I spent my evening/night at Disneyland … but I promise, I had a really good reason for being there. Two great reasons, actually. First, my friends Genevieve and Charlie’s daughter Audrey turned 4 years old yesterday and, as it their tradition, they took her to Disneyland for her special day. Second, Disney hosted a special screening of Sleeping Beauty in the park for Annual Passport holders in honor of the 55th anniversary of the film’s release as well as the film’s re-release on DVD. So, you see, there was really no way I could miss either of these major events. More »

Watch: Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Has Been Reimagined As An 8-Bit Video Game

This is TOO much awesome
1 Player or 2 Players

The brilliant folks at CineFix have put together a short video that shows what Disney‘s animated feature film Frozen would look like as an 8-bit video game and as you can see above, the video is nothing short of perfection. Even if you’re sick and tired of Frozen by this point, you have to watch this video to see how cleverly it’s been adapted into a fictional video game — that I really wish existed! If for nothing else, you have to hear the music from Frozen in glorious 8-bit form and just really respect all the inventive hard work that went into the creation of this video. Ugh, it’s soooo good.

Watch: ‘Mean Girls’ Star Lacey Chabert Stars In A Movie Based On The Dating Site Christian Mingle

And it's called 'Christian Mingle'
Find God's match for Lacey Chabert

PITNB reader Rachel gave me the head’s up that Mean Girls actress Lacey Chabert is starring in a new movie called Christian Mingle which is based on the dating website Christian Mingle and my head almost exploded from all the weird awesomeness. First, I’m really quite impressed that someone came up with the idea to make a movie based on Christian Mingle. Second, I’m thrilled that Lacey won the lead role in this awesome-sounding movie. Honestly, the premise sounds more like a movie you’d see on the Hallmark Channel but still, I’m intrigued. Lacey‘s character is NOT a Christian but she’s so thirsty to find a man that she pretends to be a Christian on Christian Mingle and then meets and falls in love with a Christian guy named Christian (OK, I made that part up but wouldn’t this movie be better if his name was Christian?!) and she has to keep pretending to be a Christian to keep him until his suspicious mother ferrets out the LIE that she is NOT a Christian. My guess is that the guy, being the good Christian that he is, decides to love her anyways and Lacey‘s character becomes a Christian in the end and the couple proceed to mingle … in the Biblical way (but only after marriage). DOESN’T THAT SOUND LIKE A MOVIE YOU’D LIKE TO SEE? I’m not even kidding, I deffo plan to see this movie. It hits theaters this month so … who wants to come with?

Watch: Trent Reznor Talks ‘Gone Girl’ On ‘CBS This Morning’

Trying to get inside David Fincher's head
"My job is to be in service of the picture"

This past weekend may have been the first one in 50 years where there were NO Saturday Morning Cartoons on any of the major network channels but it was also a weekend where Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor appeared on a morning TV talk show. Reznor appeared on CBS This Morning to discuss the writing process for the score of Gone Girl and as you can see above, he can handle himself very well on bright, sunny morning TV just as well as he can handle himself on stage in front of a mass of sweaty, moshing music fans. It’s a really interesting interview, I think you will enjoy it.
