The Book of Mucci

The Book of Eli.

I really don’t want to be excited about this movie.  I am excited about this movie.  As much as I look at the trailer and walk away unimpressed, as much as Denzel always leaves me a little “meh” (at least since he left St. Elsewhere, which was awesome), this movie has two things going for it.  The Hughes Brothers.  Not that they’re flawless (they aren’t), but there is a possibility they can bring it again, and I’ll be more than happy to watch them try.

It’s probably going to suck.  I will most likely see it Thursday, I’ll let you know.  Unless you’re going on Thursday as well.  Then you’re on your own.

What do you think the book is?  Is it really a book?  Is the story itself “The Book of Eli”, as in “The Book of Mark”, or The Book of Job”?  My friend Noah (@noahphex) think’s it’s a printed copy of Wikipedia.  I hope he’s right.  I think it’s a Chilton manual for a 1965 Ford Mustang.  I don’t know why.

What do you think it is?  There’s a comment section at the bottom, you know.  We could make this a sort of two way conversation if you wanted.  Or you can tweet it to me.  I’m @micktomlinson.  There’s a link over there on the right.

Spiderman 4 is off the table.  I’m actually relieved.  I love Sam Raimi, but Spiderman 3 was a horrendous piece of fecal matter.  Evidently, the studio couldn’t make up it’s collective mind about a plot for Spiderman 4, which was to be released this year.  Released this year?  2010?  Exactly.  And they still couldn’t decide on villain.  Or two.  Or stars.  Raimi walked.

Good for him.

So now, the brain trust at Sony have decided to reboot the franchise.  New actor, new director, new origin story.  If I was a line drawing on a piece of white paper, you could color me skeptical.

And I would encourage you to color outside of the lines.

Much better news – I received a video today.  Phil Mucci, the man who made two of the best short films ever to play FantasticFest (Far Out and The Listening Dead) sent me a sneak peek at his newest music video.  It’s an interesting little piece for a band named Dommin, named after their lead singer Kristofer Dommin, who bills himself as “the sound of the brokenhearted”.  He’s a strange mix of emo, goth, and Misfits.  Really.  He has a buzz cut and a devil lock.  But Kristofer’s devil lock is curly.  Because he’s goth.  Tara says he reminds her of the leader of the goth kids from South Park.

But really, who cares about the music?  I’m watching this video for one reason.  Mucci, baby!  It’s quite excellent.  The video reminds me a little of the movie Mannequin, if Kim Catrell had been faceless, jet black, and vaguely tricked out like a BDSM slave.  And there were 10 of her.  And they were chasing some other chick.

On second thought, it’s really not like the movie Mannequin at all. I don’t know what I was thinking.  I apologize.  It must be all the lead based paint I was eating this morning.  It’s just a trippy little story that has Mucci’s signature surrealism in spades.  I promise to let you know when it goes live.

Mucci for the win!
