Conan the Barbarian Cross-Stitch Helps You Sort Out Your Priorities

By Steotch. I love geeky cross stitch/embroidery. Also, this reminds me of the fact that Dame Judi Dench embroidered cushions with curse words on the set of Pride and Prejudice, which is one of my favorite things I have ever read.

Judi Dench’s Filthy Mouth and Other Silly Complaints About Movies by British People

While we wouldn’t be surprised to see similar, or even weirder complaints from our fellow Yanks here in the U.S. of A., a new collection of complaints by British filmgoers is just adorably prudish and random. Compiled by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), which deals directly with costumer complaints concerning movie certificate ratings, a list of the silliest gripes received by the association includes problems with what people look like, what things look like, the words people say, and the price of popcorn. Which, no, Virginia, has nothing to do with rating certificates. So, come with us after the jump to read more about how many British people have a problem every time Dame Judi Dench uses a naughty word!



Pirates of the Caribbean 4: You Seem Familiar? Have I Watched You Before?

“You seem familiar. Have I threatened you before?” It’s a question Captain Jack Sparrow likes to pose, and it’s one that might give you pause, or just a wicked sense of déjà vu. A disturbing sense that we’ve been threatened before is exactly what you can expect from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, a dour, bloated whale of a summer movie. For two-and-a-half hours, you can follow along the worn dreadlocked wig of Captain Jack Sparrow as he searches, with about 300 supporters, for the Fountain of Youth. I was wishing for the fabled Fountain about twenty minutes in, because if it’s one thing that the fourth episode of Pirates made me feel, it was old. Grabbing a cutlass and slashing to the quick; POTC 4 is an over-long, overcrowded, boring ride, if your definition of a ride is a rattling wooden crate on some very rickety track.

Judi Dench Joins All-Star Cast for A New Period Zombie Comedy

Judi Dench will join Ian McKellen, Gillian Anderson, and Mark Williams (who can be seen in the Harry Potter movies as Arthur Weasley) for the new zombie comedy, The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet, which is an extended version of E’Gad, Zombies!, a short film that appeared in last year’s Cannes Film Festival and also featured McKellen. It will be directed by Matthew Butler, who co-wrote the first script with Tori Hart. Cameras roll in Scotland later this year for the 18th century zombie romp through Upper Trollop.
