Odds and Ends (01/29/10)

Well before we get started let me just give fair warning that according to the weather people of the Tennessee area a ice storm is heading right in my direction and if it stays on track I count find myself head over heels in snow and ice all Captain America style! Why am I giving you a warning? Because if it doesn’t go another and I’m in the middle of ice there’s a good chance the power could go out thus stalling updates. So lets all hope that doesn’t happen and I can still be here to give you your daily dose of nonsense!

* Got some news in today…apparently I’ve reached the level where they actually send me this stuff now, and The Asylum (The company behind Paranormal Entity) will be releasing Megapiranha on April 27th! The movie stars none other than Tiffany (yes THAT Tiffany) as well as Berry Williams. and the plot goes as follows

A mutant strain of giant piranha escape from South America and eat their way toward the coast of Florida.

Well..it sounds pretty interesting to me!

* Miramax apparently died yesterday! Now if you are like me you are probably saying, “What!? I thought they were already dead??” Turns out when Bob and Harvey left to start The Weinstein Company, Disney kept the film division alive and has now pulled the plug.

There was a time when I can recall Miramax being a pretty big deal. I mean just look what they had! Pulp Fiction, Clerks, and a tons of other great titles. I’ll admit a part of me will hate to see it go but I also don’t like seeing things around when it’s a shell of it’s former self. So  R.I.P. Miramax! Let’s hope the reports are wrong and that The Weinstein company isn’t close behind you.

* Also don’t forget about getting me in your list of the Top 10 Horror Films Of The 90’s. Now it’s true the 90’s were a far cry from the 80’s and 70’s but I think we can think really hard on it and get a good 10 from it. Not saying it’s going to be easy, but I’m sure it can be done..I have faith in all of you!

* Gremlins 3??? YES PLEASE!..It’s going to be in 3-D?? Doh!

* Johnny Depp to start work on a new Pirates movie?? I can live with that.

* You have all spoken and it seems that for the very first Zombietary (where I record a commentary for a movie and you can just listen to it or sync it with a copy of the movie) that I will be doing (Since it’s in the lead and only two hours are left) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2! I don’t know if you all did it out of love or you did it out of hate but it just so happens it’s one of my all time favorites! Look for that hopefully this weekend!

Well this has been your news round up, hope to bring you all more later!
