Cutaways, Take 10

The Onion's AV Club has a fun piece on bad scenes in great movies -- and great scenes in bad movies. If you have any contributions to this, leave it in comments.


OK, so I only knew Upton Sinclair for The Jungle, his 1906 muckraking novel about Chicago's squalid meat-packing industry. Who knew he'd written anything else worth a damn, particularly anything worth turning into a movie? Leave it to wunderkind filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, whose next project will be the film adaptation of a little-known 1927 Sinclaur fiction, Oil.


Where do you go after a of Passion of the Christ? Well, apparently Mel Gibson's next pic will be about the life and times of Pope John Paul II. Presumably, the Jews will not be the villains in this next movie.


The trailer for Night Watch looks mighty promising.


CHUD features an interview with Palindromes director Todd Solondz and star Jennifer Jason-Leigh. In the universe of risky filmmaking, you don't get much more risky than these two.
