Breaking Link

Troublemakers why you couldn't remake The Breakfast Club. Sad but true!
Press Play Ali Arikan's "end of message" on corresponding with Roger Ebert over the years 
David Poland the second part of his goodbye to Roger Ebert
Guardian the films that defined the Thatcher Era in Britain from Chariots of Fire (1981) to My Beautiful Laundrette (1986)

Dreamweaver queer artists recently paid tribute to Sigourney Weaver here at a special gallery exhibit in NYC. Why I wasn't warned of this and could therefore help spead the word, I do not know. Love my Sigweavie.
The Advocate... Sigourney Weaver responded to the tribute.

It means so much to me that my work has been relevant and encouraging to the LGBT community. I support each and every one of you to be exactly and gloriously who you are and all you can be. The planet needs your individuality and talent and power to make it a more humane and respectful and fantastic place, where everyone is valued and celebrated equally.

Cinematic Corner sees visual parallels between Pulp Fiction and Breaking Bad 
LA Times Architectural renderings for the Academy's massive forthcoming museum and theater. I just got a boner in advance for 2017.
Twitter if you wanna see what Timothy Olymphant looked like on his college swim team
Empire Oscar Isaac, currently quite in demand, might join the cast of Ex-Machina from writer/producer turned director Alex Garland (The Beach, Dredd)
In Contention keeps us abreast of what's happening with the MTV Movie Awards. I always forget about those but they were so fun ages and ages ago before they got completely coopted by the mainstream. I mean Jesus, in one of their first years they gave a prize to Wes Anderson before anyone knew who he was.

Annette Funicello (RIP)

Tim Brayton here again. With the cinephile world still reeling from the passing of irreplaceable film critic Roger Ebert a few days before, and The Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher’s death the same day sucking up every available scrap of oxygen in the news cycle, the loss of Annette Funicello on 4 April to the MS that had forced her into retirement over two decades ago was generally reported as a sort of afterthought. A sad thing, but not remotely surprising, and not of particular importance in the grand scheme of things.

While it is true that Funicello’s death doesn’t represent the end of an epoch in quite the same as Ebert’s, it’s still worth stopping and reflecting on her career and what it represents.

Visual Index ~ Jurassic Park's Best Shots

By now you know the drill. Each week on Hit Me With Your Best Shot we ask interested bloggers to select one shot they think of as best from the pre-assigned movie and tell us why. (Next Wednesday is A Star is Born (1954) which was coincidentally just the focus of a Mad Men scene) This week's movie is Steven Spielberg's '93 blockbuster JURASSIC PARK (just discussed on the podcast) which is currently in rerelease. Great movies back in theaters is the only upside to the 3D craze according to The Film Experience.

So let's helicopter in to that island of intentional amusements and unexpected terror. The 13 blog collective's choices are  after the jump
