Lessons from the success of "It"

"The marketing was smart...they did a good job of using a "less is more" approach" - Jakey

 "This is a rare case of a movie that was perfect to remake: has a strong nostalgic following but which also kind of sucks and has a lot of room for improvement. You get the pre-installed fan base but don't have the pressure of re-creating and improving on a legit classic." - MJS

Curio: American Psycho Squared

Alexa here.  As a follow-up to Nathaniel's Birthday Bale post (and all the American Psycho love shown in the comments) I had to share these wood panels by artist Kelly Puissegur, a.k.a. retrowhale.  I've blogged about Kelly's work before; she has a wonderfully artful take on some famous directors, and she's also made panels illustrating other films (I love her sweet 80s movie set).  You can check them all out at her shop.  As you can see, her detailed style is perfectly suited to Patrick Bateman's world.

oh one more thing: I do think it would be fascinating for someone to excavate reviews of this movie. People were so dismissive at the time. Now everyone loves it.

I dragged people to the theater to see this in 2000, and they all walked out yelling at me about how they didn't understand it. Now of course, they've memorized the lines and quote it regularly at parties.

Best Lead Male performance of 2000, that's for darn sure.
