April Showers...

THE PIANO
Hunter is so expressive, like a firework (intended) exploding again and again.
❞ - Henry

THELMA & LOUISE
I took a "fluff" class senior year of high school called Mass Media, and we were allowed to do a project on anything we wanted. My friend Meaghan and I decided to do our project on Brad Pitt,..I had never seen "Thelma & Louise" and found myself obsessed with it. I think I watched it five times by the time my senior year was over. ❞ -Jakey

Curio: Pre-Mades 

Alexa here. As we spend this week looking ahead -- to fulfilling resolutions, to the Golden Globes, to the Oscars -- I thought it might be nice to look through another wormhole of sorts, to these parallel film universes created by artist Peter Stults.  Peter has taken films we know by heart and imagined if they had been made at another time.  [more...]

 

 

 

What if 2001: A Space Odyssey had been made in the 20s? Rushmore in the 50s? The Big Lebowski in the 70s?  Who would direct these stories, and who would star?  His posters act as an instigator to a fun parlor game: choose a film, choose an era, and imagine, what if?  Here are a few mroe selections...

These are really well imagined. I want to see more.

So, that first one would be Pi in 1979? Sorry, but I have to do the Spacey Luthor and say: WRONG! Here's what would be changed.

Director and writer: Nicholas Roeg
Lead Actor: Donald Sutherland

Pi is pretty much a horror film, more in line with The Exorcist or, yes, Don't Look Now than anything Woody Allen ever showed he was comfortable doing. If you're going to do something like this, I'd still expect that they GET IT DEAD RIGHT. (He nailed the supporting cast, though.)

"Avatar" would have been a George Pal production in 1960's.

I always thought "Disclosure" (1994) would've made for a great Otto Preminger late 40s/early 50s film, with Gene Tierney in the Demi Moore role and Dana Andrews in the Michael Douglas role.

I love this so much!

I desperately want to the Gucci Mane in 50s Spring Breakers. Little Richard? Chuck Berry? It would be such an amazing Frank Tashlin movie.

Heston and Belafonte as Vincent and Jules is hilarious when you consider that at one point they were allies in the Civil Rights movement but could not have been more different politically in old age.

The Lebowski poster is kinda hackish. Like some of that casting is great and the others I would just either put in a different role or not ever consider.

The Rushmore and Spring Breakers ones are perf -- Oh, James Dean, so contemporary and perfect. He could've been dropped in any era.

I've seen some of these before, but the Avatar one is new and exciting. Also, I want to watch this version of Lebowski!

Switch Bowie and Warren Oates on he Big Lebowski poster. Oates' Walter would be transcendent.

I've seen these around before and they're so fascinating.

The James Dean-Audrey Hepburn-Jimmy Stewart recast of Rushmore sounds like a dream, ugh.

And I would kill to step into an alternative film wormhole to see a version of 2001 directed by Fritz Lang. Can you imagine?!

Alternate film casting and re-imaginings re: James Dean makes me legit depressed about how many films he could've been a part of tho. All of that monster potential and barely-tapped stream of young talent and he only gets three films? This is how I know we're currently living in the darkest timeline.

Something the sprout in my mind:
Cher in Glitter lol
