Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade: The Movie

Filed under: Film FlickersEtc.

Macys Day Parade Movie

Really, Hollywood?

Movies based on board games, reboots galore, sequels to drown in, and we really need a movie based on a parade??

What kind of movie is it even going even to be?

This kind:

"We're aiming to make a four-quadrant, family-friendly film somewhere in that Night At The Museum, Elf sweet spot."

Well let us tell you that… that… actually, that might work!

Who didn't get excited for the Macy's Parade when they were a kid??

That instant recognition makes it extremely marketable, like all the other movies based on nostalgia recently.

Though, we're not sure how they're going to get the rights to all the floats' various companies. Maybe it'll all just be extremely blatant product placement??

John Landis Vs. Inception

Filed under: Film Flickers

john landis argues that inception is not original

There's no denying the fact that Inception is visually stunning…but is it original?

Some critics absolutely love the film for its originality, but some have denounced the film for being too similar to films such as 1984's Dreamscape, and 2006's anime film Paprika.

Legendary horror director John Landis has decided to take a stand against Inception.

Here's what he had to say about Christopher Nolan's mindbender:

"Interestingly enough 'Inception,' which is wonderful, is not original. There have been a lot of movies like it; remember 'Dreamscape?' Oh that's bad special effects but almost the same movie. It's Dennis Quaid and Edward Albert is the president of the United States and they insert him into his dreams."

More from Landis:

"Ya know, I think, don't misunderstand me I think Christopher Nolan is a wonderful director it's just I don't think he is yet to make a movie other than 'Memento' that I thought was really original, its just very stylish."

And more:

"He's a lucky guy, I'm glad for him; I love the fact that he can continue to make his movies. Whether he makes a couple of unsuccessful ones in a row, he'll be in the same situation as everybody else. More power to him I like smart filmmakers and I think he's great."

We def enjoyed Inception, but Landis certainly makes valid points. There are absolutely similarities between Dreamscape and Nolan's film.

What do U think? Is Inception unoriginal? Does Landis' argument change your feelings about the film?

Sexy & Overpriced Costumes By Victoria's Secret

vs_costumes_1e.jpg vs_costumes_2e.jpg vs_costumes_3e.jpg vs_costumes_4e.jpg vs_costumes_5e.jpg vs_costumes_6e.jpg

Victoria's Secret has finally unveiled their Halloween costumes and they're exactly what you'd expect: expensive and unoriginal.

The Sexy Little Fantasies range in price from $68 to almost $200!!!

Who would pay that much for a costume when you could just go to a Halloween or party store and get the same thing for a lot less!?

Thoughts???
