I think you mean April 1st. :)

They've actually chosen to merge Showbiz and Music to make Entertainment.

I am taking a class in Maya and the teacher keeps on trying to wow us by pointing out all these terrible movies and how with Maya had a hand in them. I just want him once to say "and this program will help you make your own story-driven movies that will one day destroy the studio system!" but I won't so I am going to consider it implied.

Basically, I am just going to submit a final project that is just characters from cars but with dicks. Fork up to 'em all.

"Skyline" joins "Ice Spiders" on my list of "What were they thinking when they made a horror movie and set every single CGI scene in daylight?"

Here's how the meeting must have went:
Whoa buddy, let's not make this horror film about creepy aliens that are impossible to kill TOO creepy now.

Hey, we spent all this money on CGI why the FARK would we want to hide it in the dark?

My first lesson in the importance of authorial intent, long before I knew that there was a divide, was when I found out that Fred Durst coined the term "Hatorade". The signifier is "douche" and the signified is Fred Durst and anyone who uses that term.

Did he just play the 9/11 card? You can't even play the 9/11 card when talking about pakistani militants.. let alone anti-SOPA activists. This guy's ego is out of control. A few more comments like this, and he'll be begging Ken Shamrock to come back to fill the card.. I'm going to start downloading his PPVs, then deleting them after letting it seed for a few hours. Hows that for a steaming coiler in your cheerios you dumb bastard?!?

Long-felt desires, hopes as long as vain--
sad sighs--slow tears accustomed to run sad
into as many rivers as two eyes could add,
pouring like fountains, endless as the rain--
cruelty beyond humanity, a pain
so hard it makes compassionate stars go mad
with pity: these are the first passions I've had.
Do you think love could root in my soul again?
If it arched the great bow back again at me,
licked me again with fire, and stabbed me deep
with the violent worst, as awful as before,
the wounds that cut me everwhere would keep
me shielded, so there would be no place free
for love. It covers me. It can pierce no more.

Saw the Hunger Games today. Modern cultural phenomena seems to be driven by an insatiable need to go back and win high school. The generation previous to mine was driven to fight and win Vietnam in the movies over and over again. The current one is going to have an honorable win at their teenage years at all costs.

Saw Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette" and while she tried to give it the Baz Luhrman treatment it was just a mess. The last ten years has seen a resurgence in people trying to caste the French royal family in a positive light and it's difficult to not see them as overindulgent monsters. At least she didn't do what they did in Wall Street and shoehorn in the LITTLE PEOPLE STRUGGLING TO GET BY every third scene. Most likely because she wouldn't know how to talk to someone working class and her poor people would be the children of parents who never had a hit movie or Thurston Moore's PA to his PA in charge of getting coffee.

Pluses- going to give mad props to the music selection. The offbeat soundtrack really did help it seem less like a period piece but it just ran out of steam at the end. Kirsten Dunst was also tolerable.

This has been a Sockmonkeyholocaust report for Fark DOT COM's entertainment tab. Goodnight, god bless and SAN DIMAS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL RULES!

In 1962 Gold Key comics (formerly Dell Comics), a division of Western Publishing Company, began publishing a series of comic books under the title, Space Family Robinson. The story was largely inspired by The Swiss Family Robinson but with a space-age twist. The movie and television rights to the comic book were then purchased by noted television writer Hilda Bohem (The Cisco Kid), who created a treatment under the title, Space Family 3000.

In July 1964, science fiction writer and filmmaker Ib Melchior began pitching a treatment for a feature film, also under the title Space Family Robinson. There is debate as to whether or not Allen was aware of the Melchior treatment. It is also unknown whether Allen was aware of the comic book or the Hilda Bohem treatment.

As copyright law only protects the actual expression of a work, and not titles, general ideas or concepts, in 1964 Allen moved forward with his own take on Space Family Robinson, with characters and situations notably different from either the Bohem or the Melchior treatments (It is interesting to note that none of these versions contained the characters of Smith or the Robot, but then neither did the original Allen pilot).

Intended as a follow up to his first successful television venture, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Allen quickly sold his concept for a television series to CBS. Concerned about confusion with the Gold Key comic book, CBS requested that Allen come up with a new title. Nevertheless, Hilda Bohem filed a claim against Allen and CBS Television shortly before the series premiered in 1965.

A compromise was struck as part of a legal settlement. In addition to an undisclosed sum of money, Western Publishing would be allowed to change the name of its comic book to Lost in Space.

There were no other legal challenges to the title until 1995, when New Line Cinema announced their intention to turn Lost in Space into a big budget motion picture. New Line had purchased the screen rights from Prelude Pictures (which had acquired the screen rights from the Irwin Allen Estate in 1993). At that time, Melchior contacted Prelude Pictures and insisted that Lost in Space was directly based upon his 1964 treatment. Melchior was aided in his efforts by Ed Shifres, a fan who had written a book entitled Space Family Robinson: The True Story. (Later reprinted with the title, Lost in Space: The True Story). The book attempts to show how Allen allegedly plagiarized Melchior's concept, with two outlines presented side-by-side.

To satisfy Melchior, Prelude Pictures hired the 78-year-old filmmaker as a consultant on their feature film adaptation. This accommodation was made without the knowledge or consent of the Irwin Allen Estate or Space Productions, the original copyright holder of Lost in Space. Melchior's contract with Prelude also guaranteed him 2% of the producer's gross receipts, a provision that was later the subject of a suit between Melchior and Mark Koch of Prelude Pictures. Although an Appellate Court ruled partly[19] in Melchior's favor, on November 17, 2004, the Supreme Court of California[20] denied a petition by Melchior to further review the case.

It is significant that no further claim was made and that Space Productions now contends that Allen was the sole creator of the TV series Lost in Space.

Saw Moonrise Kingdom. Nice to see Wes Anderson pushing himself out of his comfort zone. Too many amazing, actors, though, and not enough fleshing out of the characters. Wonderful ending. Can't wait until his next one and I think I might just give Darjeeling Limited another chance.
