The tradition continues with some of today's positively spun movie news from around New York:
--After some deliberation, I decided that Rupert Murdoch's disclosure that Fox would make Borat 2 is indeed good news, though, like CHUD's Devin Faraci, I have difficulty understanding who the boorish Kazakh could possibly fool next time around. But Rupe isn't sweating it, Faraci notes: "He said he 'laughed like hell.' And Murdoch would know how hell laughs. He runs it." UPDATE: Screeeeeeech! (Via Radar)
--The city's white-hot Ennio Morricone romance may have cooled some with the maestro's disappearance to the Oscar green room, but not at My Five-Year Plan, where Brendon Bouzard has the latest insights from Film Forum's Morricone retrospective: "Sitting down to see The Burglars, I wasn’t expecting much -- maybe a little Belmondo fun (watching an on-stage sex show, he makes some hilariously rubbery expressions of sexual lust that wouldn’t be out of place in a Porky’s movie) ... But the film itself is surprisingly good." Lots more at the link (including a must-read eulogy for Anna Nicole Smith and American culture as a whole).
--Disney is bringing back hand-drawn animation. John Lasseter's computer had no official comment, though sources acknowledge a mutiny is planned -- something about pod bay doors or knocking up Julie Christie. Let me get back to you on that.
