Reuters is reporting that Jay Chou has been cast as Kato (previously played by Bruce Lee on the series) on the new movie adaptation of the Green Hornet written and played by none other than Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express, Funny People) – really? LOL

I said it! Asian invasion!!! xD

The Lima Film Festival began today!

VMA Nominees Announced!
Normally, I would’ve done a different post for this, but I’ve lost my interest on MTV.
Can’t blame me, can you?

Womanizer… video of the year? – oh the sadness. Alongside Spears~~~ Eminem with We Made You, Beyonce with Single Ladies, Kanye and Lady Gaga. – REALLY??? I should really make a Look Back on 2008 Videos, I mean… there should be better, MUCH BETTER music videos than those.

Lady Gaga for the win, even though I didn’t really dig any of it. <- that’s a prediction.

Hello there, Carey Mulligan!
And Emma Thompson, and Olivia Williams…
and Peter Sarsgaard and Alfred Molina – LOL

Looks a bit on the sappy side, but even like that seems worth a look. I loved About a Boy and High Fidelity xD – In the meantime, if you intend to watch this… please also check out Precious (aka. Push) – it will be at the Gala at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Also there…

Kore-eda’s Air Doll with Doona Bae!!!! *squee*
and Bong Joon-ho’s Mother

We’re almost about to finish up with June – still haven’t reached 20 films listed on 2009 @ IMDb… and I’m still way short on my quota to be legible on my own awards.

I thought it’d be interesting to see how this works, so I grabbed the IMDb Power Search Tool and looked for all films listed on IMDb following this criteria:

  • All films must have over 50 votes on the site (you know, just to make the list shorter)
  • I must have voted it over 6.

So I made my list of the regular categories – All acting categories, best animated feature, best director and best picture – without caring about the language they’re in. Just a reminder~~~ this year’s awards should include all categories except for Documentaries and shorts~~~

Here are the ones of the would’ve beens of films released on 2000 – Oscar 2001 –

Here’s the main post.

If you’re too lazy to read that, I said to be eligible to vote you’d have to at least watch 48 films a year. We are halfway May… almost halfway through 2009, and… according to IMDb’s, I’ve got only 14 films listed as 2009. And one of them is a straight-to-video and the other is a short film hahaha. So that leaves me with freaking 12 films in 2009!!! 12 films in half a year, WTF!!! At that rate *I* won’t even be legible for voting on my own awards hahahaha.

Anyway, besides from those films… I have 9 other films that I want to see, and have already (seems like) been released somewhere in the world. Starting with… Precious (aka, Push), The Soloist, Los Abrazos Rotos, Blood: The Last Vampire, Coco avant Chanel, Up, The Young Victoria, New York I Love You… and the soon to be Terminator Salvation.

That makes it… 21. Will I make it?

If you wanna know how well you’re doing, head over to IMDb’s Power Search,

  1. select the 2009 films,
  2. exclude tv series, tv movies, direct to video and episodes…
  3. with a minimun of 50 votes (well distribute films usually have over that number of votes),
  4. sort results based on my vote rating (if you have an IMDb account)
  5. search!

Other interesting films not-yet-released here.

Formerly known as “Push,” Precious was the winner of this year’s Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, and the Grand Jury Prize for Best Drama. Based on the novel Push by Sapphire, it tells the story of a teenage girl named Precious living in Harlem…

Movie looks good… PLUS! they say Mariah can act. LOL
