Mamo #128: Liar Happyness

In which at least one of our hosts proves incapable of distinguishing between a Will Smith movie that opened this weekend and one that opened two years ago, and a Jim Carrey movie that opened this weekend and one that opened ten years ago. Oh! And Blu-Ray Dark Knight, and the greening of Weitz, and other things too.

Twilight is worth watching if only for the AMAZING vampire baseball game. So much fun.

Oh, and hot damn, I guessed the entire premise of Seven Pounds from the trailer. Woohoo! Not sure if I want to watch it just yet though...poor critical acclaim, but all the people I know that have seen it have liked it.

Um, yeah. I'm not a Jim Carrey fan at all, but read this article that has slowly swayed me in his favor. Worth a read.

Incidentally, further to something I mentioned in the show, Kevin Smith HAS finally come out of his hole, with a 2-part SModcast in which he and Scott Mosier discuss (among other things) the relative failure of Zack and Miri. It's essentially a SModcast Mamo, or "SMamo", and if you're up for nearly 3 whole hours of whinging, he's your man.

I will concede that Dark Knight was the straw that broke this camel's back on the BluRay upgrade issue.

It will be my 2nd high tech purchase of 2009, right after I get a TV worthy of HD movie viewing.

I would do whatever that Facebook thing is but I don't do Facebook... You are favourited in my Firefox if that helps... :)

Disney pulls out of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader!

While declining to elaborate, Disney and Walden Media confirmed Tuesday that for budgetary and logistical reasons the Burbank-based studio is not exercising its option to co-produce and co-finance the next "Narnia" movie with Walden

Yeah, I was surprised (and not) to see that. Surprised that Disney made such a bold, public move away from the franchise after only one failure. Not surprised, though, because of the aforementioned failure and the law of diminishing returns on this thing. Michael Apted? Really?

Hey I forgot to post about Adam Sandler. He's doing just fine. Zohan grossed 100 mil which isn't bad for a rated R feature. Bedtime Stories is tracking for a 40+ opening weekend.

Speaking of Disney and Adam Sandler and movies and popular culture...I hope you don't mind if I hijack this podcast post for a bit to ask you all to do something good for Christmas:

Disney will donate up to 250,000 free books to kids in need (as part of their marketing for Bedtime Stories) if you post a comment on this blog telling them about your favorite bedtime story growing up.

Go here for the details and to leave a comment.

Thanks, sorry for hijacking the thread. Happy Christmas to all of you!
