My Favourite Harry Dean Stanton Performances

Editorial, Movies, Television / Comments Off on My Favourite Harry Dean Stanton Performances

A few days ago the world got a little dimmer. Harry Dean Stanton passed away at the age of 91. Celebrity deaths don’t generally hit me that hard but this one did. Stanton is the kind of actor that elevated every project he was a part of, whether he was in a lead role or a quick cameo. Roger Ebert once said that any movie with Harry Dean Stanton in a supporting role couldn’t be all bad and for my money that is a true statement.

He has one film left to come out, this years Lucky (pictured above). I’m looking forward to seeing *Lucky at VIFF next week and it is one of the films I’ve been anticipating most. I imagine now, as the last performance of a legend, it may take on a bittersweet quality.

Stanton has left a staggering filmography and each entry has a notable performance. Here now I’d like to share with you my favourite three by way of tribute to his amazing career.

News, Television / Comments Off on ‘Cowboy Bebop’ is getting a live action remake. Sure, why not.

Cowboy Bebop is one of the few anime properties I can honestly say that I loved. In fact, it’s the only one, and only one of two that I even really like. You’d think then that the news of a live action remake would be exciting but as it turns out it kinda isn’t.

After ten long, twisted, weeks there is finally a winner for Big Brother Canada Season 3. And how.

Of course, this being reality television the finale was a two hour show the first ten minutes alone dedicated to recapping the season thus far with dramatic voice overs from the three remaining HGs. And it wasn’t until the last 5 minutes that anything of real importance was revealed.
