Three Muskeeteers

Color me crazy, but if the most recent and insulting copiam discribandi of Alexander Dumas is an indication of how Hollywood really feels of its fans I’m at a complete loss of words.

This is no masterpiece, it’s much much more (and by that i mean worse) than what the novel intelligentsia call bad writing. Dumas’s legacy is the adventure and journey that accompanies the discovery of truth and justice… This film reduces those efforts to the infantile and banal and calls forth- gives buoyancy to- all that is folly with the modern art of storytelling.

I Shall Finish the Game

William H. Bonney: You remember the stories John use to tell us about the the three chinamen playing Fantan? This guy runs up to them and says, “Hey, the world’s coming to an end!” and the first one says, “Well, I best go to the mission and pray,” and the second one says, “Well, hell, I’m gonna go and buy me a case of Mezcal and six whores,” and the third one says “Well, I’m gonna finish the game.” I shall finish the game, Doc.  ~Young Guns II 

Jedi Battle

As a Starwars fan I get a huge jolt from the fantastic work that amature film makers are doing these days. Finding them is as simple as doing a “starwars” search on youtube. I found this particular media segment to be phenomenal.
