Oh yes! How magic is this?

Tim Burton's TV spot for his exhibit at MOMA.

Treasure Found: Charlie Chaplin Footage Purchased for $5!!!

So this man, Morace Park, buys $5 can of film stock from an guy on ebay. What he ends up getting is all kinds of magic in my book. Footage of planes flying during World War I, some early stop animation and some outtakes of Chaplin films. WHAAAAAAA???? Can we say that's totally awesome! Forget the war footage, but animation and Chaplin from the early 1900s! Holy amazing. This would be the find of the century for me, aside from unseen Fellini footage. But wow! I'm excited for this guy, I am. Should be awesome. Hopefully they'll release some of it to the public. So we can all enjoy.

Happy moviegoing!

Steve Martin Co-Hosting the Oscars!...Umm Let Us Assess for a Second....

I heard it several times in the past few days that Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin were set up to host this year's Academy Awards Ceremony. /Film confirms that yes Martin and Baldwin will co-host the Oscars. Now let's just asses for a second cause, despite my reservations about Alec Baldwin, I am super excited about Steve Martin and I think it will be awesome because of him. /Film says Steve's statement on the decision is: “I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin.” This is why the show is going to magic! Can't wait!
