Ed Wood

I had seen bits and pieces of Tim Burton’s Ed Wood before, but I had never actually seen the whole thing. But what I had seen from it I really enjoyed, and I planned to see it all the way through at some point. This weekend I finally bumped it to the top of my Netflix Queue, and sat down with it to watch. Incase you didn’t know Ed Wood was a infamous(although maybe not at the time) B-Movie director, who directed such cult classics as, Glen or Glenda, Bride of the Monster, and of course, Plan 9 from Outer Space.

I fell in love with Tim Burton’s Ed Wood within the first five minutes of the movie. Johnny Depp is absolutely incredible as Wood, he brings a energy to the character that just makes you root for him all the way through. There are some really heartfelt moments in the movie that brought me to the verge of tears, these usually happened between Wood and Bela Lugosi portrayed by Martin Landau. I must say, I see it as a huge feet that Burton was able to bring out such an emotional response in me only from this campy cult oddity. It’s probably because I identify with Wood, because I’m just as passionate about film as he was. I broke into tears of joy during the montage of Wood making Plan 9, I was just so proud for the guy. I loved Ed Wood and I definitely recommend you go and see it right now.

Michel Gondry to direct The Green Hornet?

 When I read this story today on FilmJunk I passed it of as just another wild rumor, but apparently it's almost fact. According to Variety and The Hollywood Reporter Michel Gondry is on the verge of becoming the director of Seth Rogen's "The Green Hornet". This makes me way more excited than the old Stephen Chow news. I loved Be Kind Rewind and I can't wait to see what abstract hilarity is going to bring to the project with Seth Rogen in tow. This movie is now very anticipated for me.

Nugent Smoothie Podcast #1

In my first Nugent Smoothie podcast I talk about Coraline and Pirated Oscar Screeners. Music: Jon Brion-Knock Yourself Out and Queen-Your my Best Friend.


Since I wanted to catch up on some of the oscar nominated flicks this year I decided to steep down to the lowest level to do it, I pirated them(except for Benjamin Button, thats to cinematic for me to do that, the cinematography is to beautiful). Tonight I watched one of the most debated nominees, Frost/Nixon, and I really enjoyed it. One thing I didn't expect from the movie was a sort of mockumentary format throughout the film, there are various interviews with characters that are used to move along the plot, and while some people may see that as a weakness, I really enjoyed it. There was also alot of humor throughout that I enjoyed because I expected it to be alot more serious. The end of the movie is awesome and powerful as well. Frank Langella was also very good as Nixon, like Josh Brolin in last years W., he did more than an impersonation, and showed off the human element in the man. Overall, even though it may not deserve Best Picture, I really liked Frost/Nixon and I highly recommend it.
