Inspired by the visited countries meme: How many states/provinces/countries have you patronized a cinema in?

I was pondering a way to fuse a film festival and a music festival.

Idea: A director and a band collaborate on a film. The band composes all the music – the score, any songs. The final cut of the film is devoid of music and can only be seen in its intended form by catching the band live on a film tour.


I'm on the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival's mailing list.

Though the full lineup is still being finalized, we are excited to announce a tribute to the portrayal of Jews in broadcast television.

Or: Seinfeld.


Another Hole in the Head unveiled its full 09 line-up.

Highlights:

Black Devil Doll
Heather plays with a Ouija board. Meanwhile, a black radical is electrocuted. Channels get crossed, and we now have our somewhat shocked temptress sharing "quality time" with a puppet that craves white women, raunchy sex, fried chicken, murder and destruction.

Franklin cums alive?

The Silence of the Sushi Rolls
Meet Claire, an elite sexual crime investigator, who tries to arrest a sex offender on a train, but he evades capture by putting a strange device on her vagina that incapacitates her.

caps of the trailer:

Sushi Rolls is, evidently, the re-titled fourth film of a Sexy S.W.A.T. Team tetralogy.

Sexy S.W.A.T. Team is also known as "Female Detective Molester Buster: My Ass Wins."

It's followed by Sexy S.W.A.T. Team 2 a.k.a. "Female Detective Molester Buster 2: Catch You with My Breasts," "Team 3: Indecent Technique" and "Team 4: Melting Body." [source]


What is the best fourth film sequel? Rocky IV?

Star Wars doesn't count.

Speaking of which, Jord, who is (was?) a Star Wars fanatic, studied film at Columbia in Chicago.

Well, guess who's currently studying film at his alma mater?

Why… Anakin Skywalker!

    Star Trek IV — the one where they go to late '80s San Francisco. Easily the most fun of the first-gen Star Trek films.
