Tina Fey: 30Rock: Star Wars

Well, I was catching up with some non-scifi programs I’ve recorded, and had to laugh when in 30Rock (created by and starring Tina Fey), they did a comparison of characters in the Star Wars films.

I’m not sure what the name of the episode is, but basically the scene was like this: Frank Rossitano (Judah Friedlander) explains to Tracy Morgan (Tracy Morgan) why there has never been, and never will be, a realistic computer generated images in a pornographic computer game.

Written By And Featuring Infamous Eurovision Winning Monster Hard Rock Band LORDI

Sarah is an autistic little girl whose father is worried about her health. Concerned for her, the father sees her removal from the hospital by force as the only option. An elevator breakdown prevents a smooth exit and leaves them trapped with a group of others.

Yet the incident is only the beginning of a descent into nightmare. As the doors open the hospital appears mysteriously deserted. When mutilated bodies are found, creatures from a dark world start a frightening attack. It soon becomes clear that the survival of the group may rest solely on the little girl.

In the same vein as The Ruins, The Devil’s Rejects and Resident Evil, Dark Floors is set to be the one of the most terrifyingly bloody monster horror films of our time.

Timur Bekmambetov Interviewed On Wanted

WANTED DVD CoverTimur Bekmambetov Interviewed On Wanted

Interviewed By: Johanna Juntunen

Q: With this being your first English language film you seem to redefine the laws of physics. It seems to happen a lot in this film?

TB: Yes. Physics is part of our imagination. The world is as it is because we think about it and then everything becomes possible, because if you can imagine things, it will happen.

Q: So do you spent a lot of time in pre-production, because it seems like you have these very imaginative shots and your visual style is very different from anybody else’s?

TB: Everybody’s style is different. Everybody is unique. That’s what I really believe. Sometimes we don’t remember this. Sometimes we’re trying to copy or to follow the rules, but if you will listen to yourself, then you will be unique. It takes time, years, but it is the most interesting part of the process. For me, what is interesting is dreaming. There are no obligations or responsibilities. Then it gets difficult, the five months of shooting, but it’s a great process and even greater when you are editing and finishing things. I like the beginning and the end.
