Why the Movie Is Nothing Like the Game

quote [ when it came to its big screen potential, only one man had the vision, producer Roland Joffé. ]

Since someone decided to re-cut the Cyberpunk game trailer to Super Mario Bros. footage, rabbit-holing ensued.

Turns out the analogy is not far-fetched since it's set dressing by the Blade Runner designer and direction by the Max Headroom people.

Them being ?Fuckin' idiots? (Hoskins) ? here's another interview echoing his regret.

The trailer makes extensive use of a Snap sample.

An Oral History of 'Marge vs The Monorail', the Episode That Changed 'The Simpsons'

quote [ It was so depressing, because I was working so hard all year and Entertainment Weekly thought the show was going downhill. It was in a year-end issue, and it ruined my Christmas. As I left on vacation, I read that I?d ruined The Simpsons. Twenty years later, Entertainment Weekly put out an issue that said, ?The fourth season is the best season ever. It?s the greatest season of the greatest show in history.? It?s like, ?Well, I?m glad you like it now!? ]

Thought this had already been posted? Apparently not!

Nancy Meyers Week - Vulture

quote [ No. They never let the filmmaker pick the release date, but when The Intern was going to come out, I begged them to give me Christmas. ]

Followup to this and that ? obscure reviews of an art film portal blog.
