"Nothing Like This" by Jay Dee
I already thanked “Eagleheart” director Jason Woliner for inspiring/getting me to watch Fosse’s All That Jazz.
Watching the film I retroactively got mad that they made 8 1/2 into a musical and movie while watching the film. Why did they make Daniel Day Lewis sing and dance when they already made an 8 1/2 muscial?
Yeah, it sucks that he’s not going to make the movie now. Maybe he will down the road, but whatever.
The thing that sticks out to me is the fact that he’s thinking of either turning the screenplay into a novel or just publishing the screenplay as is in a book format. That’s a great idea, but Tarantino should go one step further. He should just open the drawer of unfinished stuff/unproduced screenplays and put it all out as a book. Tarantino has mentioned that he’s had so many ideas for films before, but the ideas just vanished. Maybe he put something onto paper, maybe he didn’t, but if he did and he feels comfortable enough to share, put it all out there in a book. Basically, Tarantino should do a Taschen style book of his archives. Just wipe the creative slate clean and start fresh again.
Cate Blanchett is like Pepsi.
Sometimes, you’ll go to that weird restaurant that only serves Pepsi and if you’re in the mood for a soda, it’ll do. It’s not going to be an absolutely satisfying soda, but it’ll do in a pinch. Then again, you’ll go through weird phases where you’re a devoted Pepsi drinker (for example the film, Notes On A Scandal), but then you’ll wake up and realize that Coke is the best.
