JC’s Alien Babies

You probably heard of Disney’s 2012 big budget flop John Carter. I’ve recently watched the science fiction fantasy western and was not disappointed. That would be for the first 35 minutes only. This is when the film is still set on earth, John gets transported to Mars and mingles with the cutest alien babies ever.

John Carter finds an alien baby hatch, gets picked up with them, brought into town and they get good washing before being held in some sort of dungeon. Anyways, this is where it gets really interesting as for a short moment it looks like JC would have an alien encounter of a very special kind. Sadly, he is not into breastfeeding them! Have a look at the cute and just slighty sexy pictures below.

Poor alien babies: He’s just not that into you.


Yes, I dressed up as Cloud Atlas for Halloqween. I had been intrigued by the trailer when I decided on the costume.

As you probably know the movie is directed by the Wachowski-Matrix siblings and Tom Tykwer. My fascination with Lana Wachowski started when Mary introduced me to her pink dreads. Want that hair so badly. Lana and her brother haven’t been in the celerity news for years. That changed when they started the promo for Cloud Atlas.

Then Lana Wachowski won the Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award. Her speech hit the interwebs last week. It starts with a little story about her hairdresser and just gets better and better.

Lana’s part starts at 4:39.


Rooted in the tropical underground of Los Angeles nightlife, WILDNESS is a documentary portrait of the Silver Platter, a historic bar in the MacArthur Park area that has been home for Latin/LBGT immigrant communities since 1963. With a magical-realist flourish, the bar itself becomes a character, narrating what happens when a group of young artists create a weekly performance art/dance party (organized by director Wu Tsang and DJs NGUZUNGUZU & Total Freedom) called Wildness, which explodes into creativity and conflict. What does “safe space” mean, and who needs it? And how does it differ among us? At the Silver Platter, the search for answers to these questions creates coalitions across generations.

The Skin I Live In

Pedro Almodovar’s new movie The Skin I Live In will have it’s premiere in Cannes next week. The film’s poster could also be an ad for Bodyworlds. This better be a good sign. Apparently the movie is based on Thierry Jonquet’s novel “Mygale”, this revenge tale tells the story of a plastic surgeon on the hunt for the men who raped his daughter. It’s also the first time in 21 years that Antonio Banderas is going to be featured in an Almodovar film.

In this still from the movie actress Elena Anaya looks like she’s wearing a Margiela bodysuit.
I mean I have not seen one from La Maison MM like this, but couldn’t it be?

The Skin in Margiela?

Helllllo, I'm huuuur!

‘Rise of the Apes’ is set in present day San Francisco where man’s experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence of apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. (source)

That is the sentence that got me into the apes almost a year ago. I had forgotten about it up until I found the trailer today. And now it stars James Franco. Hopefully, there is an ape – human sex scene!
Anyways, I’m very much entertained by the fun-romantic-creepiness picture above.

Watch the trailer or here.


Last week I saw the dreamy and beautiful movie Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives. The film screened in Toronto for a week and before that as part of TIFF, for which the director Apichatpong Weerasethakul was in town. A Q&A session was part of the film festivals program. During the talk Apichatpong discussed “Utopia”, a project that he would love to make. Let’s hope he gets funding for it, I really want to see this:

“I’m really a big fan of Hollywood films. Especially disaster films.”

To that end, he’d love to make a sci-fi disaster film, set in Canada, that would feature the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek and also numerous female characters from sci-fi, including Star Trek’s Uhuru and Jane Fonda’s title femme from Barbarella.

“We plan to make a movie, but we cannot raise enough funds and there has to be the Starship Enterprise in the middle of a snowstorm erupting. It’s like a survey of these women going to this landscape and there are periodic snowstorms and monsters that are the creation of these people. It’s very sad, but it’s very funny at the same time. It would be a really big budget for me.”

“Uhuru” and “title femme”?! What was the writer of the Toronto Star article above thinking? How can you not get that right? He must have been on straight crack or something.

Apichatpong has mentioned the project before, in an interview from December 2009:

JB: Can you reveal some details about Utopia, which I believe is your “dream project”?

AW: It’s a science fiction film. I started working on it many years ago, after Tropical Malady. It’s a big movie and it’s based on my experiences of studying in the United States. I want to have the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek in the department store Macys, but broken down, and have the store surrounded by a snow-covered landscape. I want to work with the original science fiction actors, who are now in their 50s or 60s, and have them play scientists in this landscape who discover this broken-down Enterprise ship. There is a parallel narrative about a monster that is the product of these humans. The whole movie is about my memories of the science fiction movies that I grew up with.

As mentioned above, Utopia has been in the works for some time. An early treatment for the film seems to be from 2005 or 2006:

Synopsis: In the lost world, a pre-historic man is freed in a snow-covered landscape. Everything is white and new to him. He tries to survive in a jungle where there are periodic snowstorms. Followed by a group of fashionable old American ladies, he faces off against a terrorizing monster that hides in the jungle. He discovers a cave where he shields himself from the outside world and starts to hibernate. Through the course of his sleeping, the white and snow- covered world has turned into a lush tropical forest. He emerges from the cave and explores the new green territory in wonderment. The moist landscape is now full of miraculous fauna, flora… and elements of a fabulous adventure!

Director’s Statement: It’s a bedtime story and it’s gentle.
I imagine the coexistence of the two worlds. In this tale, both of them seem real on the surface. But when paired together, because of their differences, they become each other’s dreams. These dreams are intertwined without a sense of time. It is the future of an ancient time, and an ancient time of the future. It’s a celebration of America and of “America.” Here, life is tender and savage – civilized.
