Some movie remainders

This post was written by Friday blogger Annie Reid.

  • Jonathan Lethem calls for sexier sex onscreen in Nerve. For what it’s worth, I am completely on board about Donald Sutherland’s buttocks. I would line up for the first matinee.
  • What happens when you wake up and realize you just spent the last ten years of your life becoming a sell-out? More encouragement for those who want to write for the movies.
  • Google has a new “movie:” operator that allows you to search for movie-related phrases and get better hits. Mr. Sun has a bit of fun with this by searching for phrases like “laugh out loud” and “hilarity ensues.”
  • Finally, someone looks at the Oscar-nominated screenplays from the context of the writers, not the directors. Thank you, David Kipen and the SF Chronicle.
