Michigan becomes awesome as citizens rally to build a Robocop statue!

 

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I’d buy that for a dollar!” Well, now you should put that dollar, or more, to help Michigan build the ultimate symbol of a better tomorrow – a giant Robocop statue!

Run, don’t walk, over to http://detroitneedsrobocop.com/ and pitch in to a cause we at Bitter Balcony feel has already taken too long to happen. The only flaw in this plan is that it is to be a life-sized version of Robocop. We feel it should be a massive Robocop full of awesome, but what do we know?

Oh yeah, and “Stay out of trouble!”

"What just happened?" A review where we ask the same thing.

“What Just Happened?” it’s not only the title of the film, but what you’ll be asking yourself when this movie is over. How can a movie with so many talented actors be such a steaming pile?

Ben (Robert Deniro) is a producer dealing with the threat of a decline in his Hollywood clout. He has a movie that tested poorly, a director that doesn’t want to make the changes the moneymen want and a marriage that’s two shakes of a lambs tail from over.

The film wants to show the life of a producer in Hollywood. What we get is a bunch of whiny man-children that don’t deserve the huge paychecks they get. I get that artists can be temperamental, but these adolescent temper tantrums do not provide humor or drama. All they do is beg for someone, Ben not being that character, to slap their collective heads and force some reason into these utterly full of shit people.

Super Bowl trailers are starting to pop up and we are BORED!

 

JJ Abrams gives us a trailer for his, Steven Spielberg produced, "Super 8". Oh wait, Abrams is going the way of Shamalyaman and can never give us a straight trailer, but only tease after tease. Hopefully, this movie doesn't suck, but we can't tell based off this new teas, er, trailer. Dear Abrams, quit it with that shit. It's old. Thanks.

Next we get "Captain America". Marvel proves it can't stay away from mentioning this "Avenger" crap for two seconds. The movie looks like it could be fun, but I'm sure that twerp from S.H.I.E.L.D. will ruin it the minute he shows up. Hell even Samuel L. Jackson's appearance could make us want to walk out at this point.

Nooks and Crannies, Your next Superman is...a Brit!!!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,    

Young British actor Henry Cavill has been cast as the Man of Steel in the upcoming sequel "Superman: Man of Steel." Cavill has previous been in "Stardust," "The Count of Monte Cristo," and the cable drama "The Tudors." Like fellow countryman Andrew Garfield taking over the Spiderman role from American Tobey Maguire, Cavill will represent Truth, Justice, and the American Way as he replaces another American actor, Scott Pilgrim's vegan nemesis Brandon Routh. Look, Routh brought credibility to the role from the huge shadow of Christopher Reeve, not an easy task when you talk about the magnitude that the Superman role requires. Routh deserved another chance, and if you thought that "Superman Returns" sucked, trust me, he was the last of that movie's problems.

Interview: Tom Provost, writer/director of "The Presence"

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,    

Tom Provost is the director of the upcoming film, starring Mira Sorvino, "The Presence". We caught a screening of the film in 2010 at MIFFF in Seattle, which was reviewed here. It earned itself a spot in JAS's top films of 2010, as well. The film impresses with its aesthetics from photography to musical score and provides an original take on the classic ghost story.


First, we'd like to thank you for taking the time out to answer a few questions.

Tell us a bit about yourself and "The Presence".
