I'd love to give credit for this cartoon, but I really have no idea who made it. I do know, however, that even without any words, it's simply adorable, and perfect for a Wednesday morning.
And even better than that, a click on Hayao Miyazaki's name at the IMDB reveals he's now listed as directing a sequel to my favorite of his, "Porco Rosso," titled "Porco Rosso: The Last Sortie." Bully. (And to see the cartoon in all its glory, simply click on it a few times to see it really embiggened).
I should probably just stop there, because I really don't think anything can top that cartoon, but I'll try. Next Thursday, I'm off to the Atlanta Film Festival, and hopefully with a ticket to see "Terri," the opening night movie (I won't find out what comes with my press pass until I get there, unfortunately.) As you'll see from the trailer below, the movie, directed by Azazel Jacobs and starring Jacob Wysocki, John C. Reilly and even Creed Bratton of "The Office," is about an outcast, just about my favorite kind of flick. Enjoy.
I sure wish I got BBC America, because after getting a copy of the latest "Doctor Who" Christmas special from Collider.com, I'm really jonesing for more. Season six comes to the network on Saturday night, if you're lucky enough to get it, and just in case you needed a refresher course on the history of the good doctor and his exploits, the Fine brothers are here to help, and this is really funny stuff. Enjoy.
And speaking of funny, there really is no better place to end up today than with this Funny or Die "trailer" for a Monopoly movie. This would be even funnier without the depressing reality that there really will be a Monopoly movie, but even with that sad fact, this is really hilarious stuff. Enjoy, and have a perfectly passable Wednesday. Peace out.
