Ginger Snaps (2000) - Official Trailer

noims says...

It's actually a pretty good film, as I remember it. A lot better than I was expecting at the time. It handled the whole coming-of-age / werewolf symbology pretty well on both sides... well enough that I remember it ten or so years later.

I must admit, though, that my favourite thing about it is the multiple puns in the title.

Domtoren Church rings bells in homage to Avicii

noims says...

Nice tribute, well played.

I heard a story from a Swedish friend about 3-4 years ago, where they released a stamp with him on it, but it didn't go down all that well. No one over the age of 35 had heard of Avicii, and no one under 35 knew what a stamp was.

How Censorship Shaped Batman: The Animated Series

noims says...

To be fair, my 3 year old tried to justify hitting things the other day by saying transformers hit (although, interestingly, he's never seen any transformers films or episodes).

In this case it's going to be a good while before he sees the Batman series (although I can't wait), but it's not always easy to keep them away from seeing that kind of thing.

Guano hitting someone, though, he'd find hilarious. It's not like it's something he can copy.

Ancient Demons with Irving Finkel

noims says...

I just love the passionate way historians talk. Especially when they're not talking about their specialist subject - like when Dr. Finkel is promoting the youtube channel.

No one in their right mind goes into careers like history, the sciences, or academia for the money (not that I'm accusing historians of being in their right mind), so the ones that get comfortable but keep working are inspiring.

... except when government employees murder Bad People, like foreigners, non-whites, or too poor to afford a good lawyer... right, Bob?

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly played by a live Orchestra

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who hang about, and those who dig the music. You dig?

Amazing. Dunno what that guy just hanging about is doing though...

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Trailer (2018)

noims says...

Yes, this is Gilliam's windmill. The story's changed a few times from his original idea, but he hasn't given up in his quest.

Of course, now that it's in the can one of the old producers is claiming he holds the rights and is blocking the release, but every story needs a dramatic climax... let's just hope Terry survives it.
