A Few Notes on Disney’s Tomorrowland

I had the pleasure of seeing Disney’s Tomorrowland this past Friday.

Going into the movie, I had a vision of what I thought the movie was about based upon the special extended preview I saw at Disneyland (complete with rumbling floors…after all, this was the same Tomorrowland theater that housed Captain EO and Honey I Shrunk the Audience back in the day…)

The next day my issue of Entertainment Weekly arrived and I was thrilled to read Jeff Jensen’s article on how he came to be a part of the film.  Jensen and Damon Lindelof worked “together” on Lost.  (Jensen wrote Lost recaps for EW, and Lindelof was a creator, so yes, they worked together…)  The fascinating thing about this article is that it discusses the origin of the film and the changes it underwent through the creative process.  Now I want nothing more than to read the original script. I love the idea of seeing more mythology; I already have the book on order. As much as I appreciated the movie and its messages as they are, part of me wishes that we could see Tomorrowland as Jensen and Lindelof envisioned it, in those early stages of development. Even so, the movie is still awesome as-is. (Full review to follow)

You can read Jeff Jensen’s article here.

And, for fun, here’s an article that details some of the Disneyland Easter Eggs in the film.

Big News About AHS Freakshow’s Twisty the Clown!

(Spoiler Alert!)

 

Twisty the Clown isn’t done yet!  Ryan Murphy confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that fan favorite Twisty the Clown isn’t done yet, even though he vowed that this season, once you die, you die.

When Twisty became Edward Mordrake’s victim in the second half of last week’s two-part episode, Twitter was ablaze with #RIPTwisty hashtags.  Once his tragic history was revealed, fans became even more attached to the psychopath clown, mainly because his story was a true tragedy.

Ryan Murphy said that he loves John Carroll Lynch’s performance (he saw several Twisty the Clowns on Halloween) and wants him to return.  And return, he will!

EW’s Postmortem on True Blood’s “May Be The Last Time”

If you’re like me and you’re starving for more True Blood–anything True Blood–then check out this great article from Entertainment Weekly.  It’s an interview with Craig Chester, the writer who brought us S7E7 “May Be The Last Time.”  He offers us some juicy tidbits about the episode that has everyone talking. (I’m surprised he didn’t talk more about Hoyt’s girlfriend, microbiologist Brigette, played by Ashley Hinshaw; the Internet has been going crazy since she appeared last week)  You can find the article here:
