Film title: Play Misty for Me, Harder, Faster
Movie title: Julie and Julia Sets
Where the young heroine undertakes a life-changing study of the early 20th century pioneers of complex dynamics leading to a better insight into her own understanding of recursion.
Scary movie title: The Giant Tentacled Stomachs That Attacked Japan
Preceded by an educational short on the proper enjoyment of monster ice cream.
Alternate movie title: The Moon is New
The thing that seems to be missing from the advertising blitz for the film coming out this week is a depiction of the celestial body of the title, which as all skywatchers know would be one off of which the sun’s rays fail to reflect. This is the closest I could find.I am looking forward to analogous images for Eclipse and especially Breaking Dawn.
Educational video line: Baby Eisenstein
The Disney company has had to eat some considerable amount of crow with regard to the Baby Einstein product line they acquired a while back, which seems not to do what it was touted as doing. All this infant video watching might have some other effect however, perhaps inspiring some to craft tightly-written family dramas, others to spectacular documentaries, and still others to agonizing historical montages we can only dream of now. Or they could grow to like CGI the way I have not.
Horror movie title: The Previously Dead
I have been served brains before, and enjoyed them, insofar as one can enjoy something so similar to hard-boiled egg whites without benefit of deviled egg filling. This was long before people had worries about BSE or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and I think I have suffered no ill effect from the experience. Nor any especially potent beneficial effect, along the lines of “the best brain food should be brains,” since after all it was a matter of consuming them, not acquiring a transplant or anything.
I notice that it is possible to buy a brain hat but they really should put on a warning that it intended only for those with short or no hair, which would be bound to spoil the effect. It is just the sort of thing one might wear to see a zombie movie hoping to score a reduced price ticket.
I think the teal lady-silhouette ought to be worried about getting soiled.
