So it has been a slow March for posts...for that, I apologize. I guess my Academy Awards refraction was a bit more serious that I originally thought!
Who is Megan Phelps you ask...she is the daughter of Fred Phelps, the religious extremist on whom the sect leader in Red State was loosely based.
Who is Megan Phelps? Here is a disgusting video "parody" she did for the Westboro Baptist Church's website (caution: disgusting and offensive content ahead):
Enough of this ridiculousness, let's get to something important...
KIMABLIANO was fantastic as our INDIEGIRL on the STREETS reporting in from Utah at the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL this past January. We talked about her contributing on a more regular basis, but alas, it has been almost two months, and no KIMBALIANO....
The wait is over...here is Kimbaliano's review of RED RIDING HOOD. I had intended on including this in my soon to post cavalcade of flicks, but since she beat me to it...I yield the floor:
Mr Rhino, having been lucky enough to share my thoughts with you on a number of Sundance movies back in January, I have just seen a movie that I feel compelled to write to you about. First, let me tell you that although I love my indie films, I can also appreciate a total fluff, pop culture driven, zero substance type movie as well. Take the Twilight series, for example. I'm a huge fan, and I'm okay with that. And just because I've seen the last two Twilight movies at their midnight premieres, well, that doesn't mean my opinions on what makes good quality movie aren't valid. Plus, I fully admit that the Twilight movies are terrible - but terrible in a good way, terrible in a way that makes them entertaining. And nothing's more entertaining than the crowd at the midnight premiere of a Twilight movie, lemme tell ya.
Seriously folks, this isn't even cheesy romance or cheap thriller good. Maybe, if you've downed a couple of alcoholic beverages, and are with a couple of friends who have gathered only to mock aloud, would this movie have some redeeming qualities. This may be harsh, but consider yourself warned.
KIMBALIANO. HAS. SPOKEN.
It's sad...I thought a hammed-up Gary Oldman could save any flick or at least make it watchable! For me...I will see you soon in a post in the not so distant future.
