Welcome to The Morning Read.
That darn Terry Gilliam, taking up my whole day yesterday. Good thing he's sort of awesome, or I'd be really upset. I've got more interviews I'll be editing for you later today, but first, there's so much going on that it seems like we need a Read, don't we?
I mean, we didn't talk about this week's home video releases. It's not a huge week, but you can finally get "Big Trouble In Little China" on BluRay, which I'll be doing the next time I head into Hollywood. I already have a copy of "Race To Witch Mountain" here on BluRay, and it's worth it just for the cameo that happens 1:02:30 into the film. I'm not sure who that guy posing with the Tusken Raider is, but I think he's destined to be Hollywood's next great superstar. That is what film acting is all about. HBO released "Flight Of The Conchords: Season Two" on DVD this week, pure silliness that I find easy to rewatch. I haven't seen "The Soloist," and since it wasn't sent for review, I'm not sure when I'll get around to it. I wrote about the absolutely ridiculous "Obsessed" recently, and I just wish it was a wee bit more knowingly campy. That would help. Finally, Disney's got two catalog titles out on BluRay this week that I have right here, ready to be watched. It's been a while since I've seen "Sling Blade," and I guess it's probably time to revisit the movie that established Adam Sandler as a real commercial force and not just a cult phenomenon, "The Waterboy."
