COMMENT DU JOUR
The BIG EYES Poster

"I didn't even notice the stars at first but that's why I like it. Tag line is clever. I hope Burton gone substance over style (while being stylish) with this one." - Jija

"The art is ugly creepy kitsch... that is, slightly above dogs playing pool and black-velvet Elvis. I have a hard time grasping why we should care who created it..." - Owen

And "Guest Starring"...

I'm heading to the airport tomorrow for some much needed time with my mom, but don't fret. In fact, you may have quite an adventure coming up this next week at The Film Experience. The usual members of Team Experience that you know and love like Beau and Jose will be around and we'll also welcome Matt Zurcher of The Family Berzurcher to the blog. Like the rest of us he lives and breathes movies but he's also a musician and plays several instruments so that's, like, going above and beyond.

Plus two very special guests stars direct from the silver screen...

Writer/Director Leslye Headland. Actress Melanie Lynskey.

Leslye Headland the writer/director of Bachelorette (currently on iTunes and opening in theaters on September 7th) and the lovely actress Melanie Lynskey star of Hello, I Must Be Going (also opening Sept 7th) and a frequent face in movies you know and love like Heavenly Creatures, The Informant, Away We Go and Win Win will be here. They will each be taking over the blog for one day !!!

update: Lesley's posts & Melanie's posts

So give these ladies your full attention and pour yourself into the comments once they arrive. It's like we've gone full Mia in The Purple Rose of Cairo and the movies are walking right off the screen and into this blog. Hell, ask them some questions right now in the comments and maybe you'll inspire a sentence or three in their posts.

I'll see you in the comments and I'll be back midweek to snatch back the reigns from these movie muses.

if you ladies are reading this....
@Leslye: I loved your film. I laughed even more than in Bridesmaids, and that's saying something. Question: were the three leading ladies your first choice to play their respective characters?
@Melanie: You're a wonderful actress, you should have an Oscar for Heavenly Creatures and share it with your costar, the great Kate Winslet :D Question: How competitive are good female roles in Hollywood or the independent arena?

Sounds AWESOME!

OMG, I love Melanie! She's always showing up in all of my favorite movies. She's definitely in that Missi Pyle/Judy Greer mold.

Utah!?!?! Yay!

Awesome and then some! Have a lovely time with your mom and as Keira wouls say: Come back to us!

I'm happy for all the guests but I'd lke to say a big YAY for Melanie who is one of the sweetest faces Hollywood has to offer.
Unfortunately, the only question I can think of (and is the one I had thought after watching the Hello I Must Be Going trailer) is a shallow one and it's: How hot is being on a bed with a semi-nude Christopher Abbott?

(I'm not that superficial most of the time. Or am ?)

Can we bump them up to "Special Guest Star"?
