The Raven

Once upon a weekend dreary, at the movies, weak and weary,
From the meaningless action of the film I’d seen before
While I waited, quietly seated, in the dark I sat and tweeted,
As if some one actually needed, needed my opinion for.
`Decent Action,’ I tweeted, `Decent action that I’d seen before -
Only this, and nothing more.’

Ah, distinctly I remembered, at Comic-Con I was a member,
In Hall H I was attendant on “The Raven” panel floor.
Eagerly I wished to see it; – vainly I hoped Cusack freed it
From the current trend of sorrow – sorrow for his lost career -
For his once proud, wonderful, but currently offtracked career -
Mentionless here for evermore.

So the brightening of the silver screen brought hope the movie
Thrilled me – filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
Unfortunately now, to sadness of my heart, it hurts reporting
`’Tis some average outing that feels as if you’ve seen before -
Truly some average outing that feels as if you’ve seen before; -
This it is, and nothing more,’

Movies That Everyone Should See: “Stand By Me”

20120324-204947.jpg

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me, yeah

Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Random Rants: Call Off the Dogs. Cameron Crowe is NOT Going to do a Sequel to “Say Anything”

I was nervous, too.

A month ago exactly, actually, I wrote a post where I kind of lost my shit because I heard that Cameron Crowe was toying with the possibility of doing a sequel to “Say Anything”.

Good news that I just read courtesy of Slash Film, who point out that IFC.com got him to set the record straight. Apparently he was just bullshitting with the person who had asked the question, and even though he had discussed it with John Cusack, it was a long time ago, and he has no intention of revisiting his classic characters for real.

Random Rants: Cameron Crowe Mentions the Possibility of a “Say Anything” Sequel

This post began as a small “News Worth Sharing” post, but quickly got out of hand. Once I was done, I had to create a new category – Random Rants. I hope I don’t have to add to it often.

Surfing the net today I discovered an article on slashfilm.com that quotes Cameron Crowe as saying that there may possibly be a sequel to “Say Anything”. His comments, made during the annual Television Critics Association press tour, are quoted as follows:

“I do kind of think there might be another chapter to that. I’ve thought about it from time to time and talked to John Cuasack about it. Lloyd Dobler might be back. It’s the only thing I’ve ever written that I might consider doing that with.”

To which I say, “Oh my dear God, please %#$&ing no.”
