two vagina dentata refences from ffc in the same week.

vagina dentata = the new hotness

Is it just me, or is Because I Said So's poster even more nauseating than that of the infamous Rumor has it...? Beyond the cutesy stupidity of it, though, the bizarrely mismatched photos force me to believe that Diane's about to pull a Beatrix Kiddo on Mandy Moore's Elle Driver.

The link to said poster.

God yes, that poster is hideous. First spotted it when I went to see Apocalypto and I honestly thought it was a joke--like one of those mock-movie-poster PSAs for parenting or abstinence or some such thing.

God, what a putrid poster. If Diane Keaton keeps appearing in movies like this, all her cred from her Woody Allen days may fade away. Her performance in Annie Hall is gold, but her legacy is seriously at risk.

And kudos to Alex- your Sundance reviews this week have all been wonderful. Chapter 27 is getting a lot of bad press, but your review convinced me that it is definitely something I need to go see (I hope it gets a distributor).

Bill C said...

Ack, that poster. (Just glanced at it again to refresh my memory.) You know what really freaks me out about it? The fact that Keaton and Moore aren't making eye contact, but staring at each other's foreheads.

Has everyone seen the trailer for Black Snake Moan? Unbelievable. It almost looks like a practical joke.

Because I Said So may be bad (5% at Rottentotamoes) but there's actually something worse! It's Epic Movie at 3%! Aparently the pop-culture reference gambit is a double edged sword, and as someone who has proclaimed my love of Family Guy more than once here, I have to offer that the difference is one of breadth and affection. I mean, Harry Potter's an easy (and very current) target, but how many people would go to the trouble to excise an entire scene from Anchors Away? It shows a love for cinema completely unlike the contempt that the makers of Epic Movie or Scary Movie show.

Anyone of you lovely folk had a chance to see Messengers? I heard WC say it wasn't screened for crits on BPS but I'd still like some thoughts on it if anyone has them - I liked the Pang Bros' The Eye...

Isn't Diane Keaton a little old to be Mandy Moore's mother? Grandmother might even be a little more realistic. And I laughed my ass off at the Tim Curry in Legend/Baron of Hell from Doom thing that is used to represent the movie on the main page.
