Cinefile detritus and movie reviews

July 30, 2003

In what can only be a preemptive strike against movie piracy, film and television studios are seeking new sources of revenue. As Slashdot reports, there's a mondo online auction starting tomorrow that features a vast array of sci-fi stuff. Buy Cyclops's visor, Battlestar Galactica costumes and (they've only got this priced at US $500 - $1000!) Rebecca Romjin-Stamos's 'breast appliances' and wig from X-men. You'd have to pay me US $2000 - $3000 grand to walk away with Dennis Hopper's outfit from Waterworld.

This comes on the heels of the successful and opportunistic Buffy Auction. Three rubber stakes for a mere US $5600.

Paramount recently had a massive costume and prop sale here in Vancouver. Why it was here, I have no idea. Things were pretty picked over by the time I got there, but I did get a cool CAN $7 shirt.

I'm trying to consume as little celebrity-related information as is humanly possible, but the Geocities, homespun charm of the A List forced me to give it a read. I expect very little of it is true, but its so thorough that a bit of it must be. It reads like Satan's checklist:

Bateman, Justine: Linked with Richard Dean Anderson and Leif Garrett.
Bernsen, Corbin: Philanderer. Vain. Linked with Amanda Pays and Vanna White.
Curtis, Jamie Lee: Pothead. Recovering drug and alcohol addict. Married to Christopher Guest. Linked with Adam Ant.
Williams, Billy Dee: Abuser of women.
Usher: Diva.

I was going to quote the Warren Beatty entry, but predictably, it was too lengthy.

Sticking with this week's sudden lesbian theme, I notice that this page's author uses L_____, B_______ and $cientologist to replace 'lesbian', 'bisexual' and 'scientologist'. Is this an anti-Google tactic? Does she not want to endorse those practices? What's up with that?

I think this came from the excellent Tagliners.org, which also sends us to this excellent Onion article: 'Gigli Focus Group Demand New Ending In Which Both Affleck and Lopez Die'. Amen.
