Sundance Is Lookin’ GOOOOOOD!

Here I was, ready to write off 2009 movie-wise with the (hopeful?) exception of Watchmen.

Looks like this years Sundance Film Festival has quite a bit to say about that.

The lineup for the most-prestigious film festival in indie filmmaking is looking good, with the Charlyne Yi-Michael Cera psuedo-bio pic Paper Hearts, the John Krasinski (that’s Jim from the Office) directed adaptation of Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, and most surprisingly, the Patton Oswalt starring Big Fan, which features Oswalt as a HUGE Giants fan who deals with the fall out when he gets beat up by his favorite player.

I guess indie filmmaking will make ’09 as worthwhile as the big blockbusters did this past year.  I hope.

Hey, Jami!  Are you going this year?

Whatever Happened To Genndy Tartakovsky?

This past holiday weekend, I was riding in the car of one Mr. Ghostfreehood, listening to The Forcecast.  He’s experiencing a resurgence in his Star Wars fandom, so he’s devouring all that he can.

What was of note, however, was how the team who is doing the sound work on the new Clone Wars toon crapped all over the Tartakovsky version from 2003, saying it was no longer “canon”.  I was somewhat outraged, given that it was honestly the best thing to come of the prequels.

This of course made me wonder…what is Genndy up to?

Last we heard, he was working on a (now-scrapped) sequel to The Dark Crystal.

A bit of searching around though, and I stumbled upon this great interview from AICN with Jon Faverau, discussing the sequel to IRON MAN.

Guess who Faverau picked up as storyboard artist, just because of his amazing action sequences?

That’s right, Genndy’s maping out the future of ol’ Shellhead.

One waddle’s loss is another’s gain, I guess.

Consider me double-pumped for IRON MAN II. And hey, read the article. It’s pretty damn good.

Another Great T-Shirt From Glennz.

You may not have heard of Glennz before, but chances are, you’ve seen his work.

Before opening his own online store, Glenn Jones was responsible for some of Threadless.com’s most iconic tee-shirts, like The Dark Side of The Garden.

Now, he’s on his own, producing awesome shirts on a regular basis.

The reason why I post?  His newest shirt, titled “Slowing Down” cracked me right up.

I guess Wally West is having trouble with old age…
