Movie Minesweeper - The What's For Dinner? Edition

- Wade Shotter takes on Michel Gondry at his own game... and comes out ahead in several distinct ways.

- According to the LA Times, Kevin Smith's new comedy is to be called Zack and Miri Make a Porno. I Want More Candy, if you will. Or The Other Amateurs. Shooting will start in February and the film will feature nudity - "but funny nudity, not gratuitous nudity." Can you 'indulge' and laugh at the same time? I guess we'll find out late next year.

- Al Pacino might just possibly play Napoleon in a movie. But probably not.

- Spike Lee is looking to adapt James McBride's book Miracle at St. Anna. It's a story about black World War 2 soldiers, to be shot in Italy.

- DavisDVD have listed a whole slew of upcoming direct-to-DVD titles: Wrong Turn 2: Dead End, Bachelor Party 2, Garfield Gets Real, Lake Placid 2, Stargate: The Ark of Truth, Stargate: Continuum, Flight of the Living Dead: Outbreak On a Plane, Bring It On: In It To Win It, Curious George 2: Monkey On The Run, Return To House On Haunted Hill, A Dennis the Menace Christmas, The Lost Boys 2, Get Smarter: Bruce and Lloyd Out Of Control and sequels for 8 Seconds, Cellular, Friday, Havoc, The Players Club and Undisputed.

I'm too hungry to go on right now. What's for dinner?

I saw that video on YouTube about 3 weeks ago and made that comparison about it. A bit of a rip off, but at least a well made rip off. The legos in Gondry's White Stripes video weren't always legos (at least at times it seemed there were video effect short cuts), I believe Shotter has dice all the way through.

I still prefer Gondry, but we shall see if Shotter has something new up his sleeve soon.
