Separated at Birth: Kato and Hamburglar

September 10th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Photos taken on the set of Michel Gondry’s Green Hornet recently surfaced, but they may leave those who revere Bruce Lee’s badass legacy as Kato a little cold.

It was our friend Mike who pointed out to us that Taiwanese singer-actor Jay Chou as Kato weirdly resembles another well-known masked sidekick…Hamburglar.

And you know robble, robble, robble rhymes with “trouble.”

Thanks, Mike! Everyone buy a copy of Mike’s film West 32nd when it comes out on DVD!!!

Smells Like Independent Spirit

February 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

“Oscars Shmoscars! I’m here at the Independent Spirit Awards, which is the Academy Awards for smart, quirky actors who do normal people-things like knitting and shopping for their own groceries. Speaking of that, I was vacuuming my house right before this thingy, and I somehow got my dress caught on the vacuum head, and half of my dress ripped off! But then I thought the dress looked even more edgy, so what the hell? And with a dress this DIY, I figured I didn’t really need to wash my hair or accessorize or pick out shoes that actually go with this outfit. How’s that for indie spirit? Lord, please let Michel Gondry put me in his next movie!”

Thanks, James!

Michel Gondry Is French for Genius

I finally watched Be Kind Rewind last night, Michel Gondry’s new valentine to moviemaking, and I could not stop giggling. Gondry’s “Sweded” version of Rush Hour 2, with Jack Black as Jackie Chan and Mos Def as Chris Tucker, is a pitch-perfect send-up of that pile of poo.
