Last night saw Kat's "Kat's Korner: Stones release a tooth grinder" and Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Deaths of Children" both get posted.
Connie e-mailed Ann and, as a result, we're considering "Ted." For our year's best list. I saw "Ted" at the movies but didn't realize it was out on DVD and streaming already. Ann's streaming it tonight. As I've pointed out before, if you want to weigh in, e-mail or leave a comment. We're going to have to slow things down and concentrate on the ranking shortly so if you want to weigh in do so soon.
"Total Recall" comes out tomorrow. No one's suggested that. But I am going to be streaming it tomorrow. I've wanted to see it for some time. I almost saw it at the movies but I was with friends and the group vote was for another movie.
The mistake I think they made -- based on the trailer -- was the two women. In the original it was Sharon Stone and another woman. In this one, both women had dark hair and similar features. I couldn't tell them apart in the trailer.
On remakes, did you hear that they're remaking "Kojak" and doing it for the big screen?
Vin Diesel is going to play the title role. I like Vin Diesel but am wondering about him with "Who loves you baby?" (Kojak's catch phrase.)
I also question "Kojak" on the big screen. It'll work if it goes "French Connection," you know? But if it tries to be silly or has a small scope, it's not going to work.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
