Marvel Oscars

This is kind of lame, but I liked the Hulk/Red Hulk version of "Black Swan".

I've been re-reading "The Preacher" and I noticed Tulip singing "Haunted" (that Sinead O'Connor/Shane MacGowen song). I hadn't caught that before. It looks like they have a director for the film adaptation now - I hope they don't fuck that up.

Shaun of the Dead Island

I loved that Dead Island trailer, and this is really awesome too. Makes me want to watch Shaun of the Dead again, play Dead Island, and other miscellaneous zombie-related things.

The Turin Horse

"1889. German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche witnessed the whipping of a horse while traveling in Turin, Italy. He tossed his arms around the horse's neck to protect it then collapsed to the ground. In less than one month, Nietzsche would be diagnosed with a serious mental illness that would make him bed-ridden and speechless for the next eleven years until his death. But whatever did happen to the horse? This film, which is Tarr's last, follows up this question in a fictionalized story of what occurred. The man who whipped the horse is a rural farmer who makes his living taking on carting jobs into the city with his horse-drawn cart. The horse is old and in very poor health, but does its best to obey its master's commands. The farmer and his daughter must come to the understanding that it will be unable to go on sustaining their livelihoods. The dying of the horse is the foundation of this tragic tale."
