We already have a Movies I've seen... but some of the entertainment industry are quite... entertaining in their own right. And some of the news about upcoming movies are good to share. But I don't want to clog things up with these observations, and also... other people see things that I don't, and might want to share. So... this thread!
Not sure how it will work out... but then that's most things!
I'll start it out...
Rian Johnson is Here to Rescue Star Wars
Interesting article about a director I'd never heard of and the movies that he's done... that makes me want to see them. I *have* looper, but haven't watched it yet... maybe that's on my list for today.
And my favorite quote from the article..."I want to live in the universe where the kid from 3rd Rock From the Sun ends up in Star Wars. That’s a good universe. Things might turn out OK there."

I can get behind that sentiment.
Gary Oldman Defends Alec Baldwin and Mel Gibson, Slams ‘Political Correctness'
Man, I've always loved Gary Oldman in films... and he's seemed like a cool guy. But some of the quips in this... they take cool and ballsy to a new level!
My favorite soundbite from it:
We all hide and try to be so politically correct. That’s what gets me. It’s just the sheer hypocrisy of everyone, that we all stand on this thing going, “Isn’t that shocking?”
Isn't that the truth... as long as we don't get too famous, or manage to keep our sins in the dark... we're OK. But if the covers slip one bit with the cameras following night and day... you're a goner.
... unless the particular celebrity does a complete mea culpa in public and bow down begging apologies, in which case if the apology is judged to be sincere enough by enough people (and not insincere by any of the wrong people) you might dig your way out to daylight.
And don't let anyone have any sort of integrity and stand by their friends... this stuff is vile and sticky.
