Everybody’s Chattin: It’s Friday link love time!

Happy Friday all! It’s the first Friday of Spring this year, though here in the Land of 10,000 lakes, temps are still hovering in the low 30s F, about 15 degrees cooler than average! 😦

But why be gloomy right? After all, it’s link love time! Check out these links for your reading enjoyment:

  • Zack Snyder’s fantasy thriller Sucker Punch is out today. Should you see it? Well, your friendly neighbor ScarletSp1der‘s already got his review out: Sucker Punch Knocks Itself Out.

    I personally have zero interest in seeing this in the theater. Fortunately, neither does my husband. Though we generally dig Snyder’s work (even the one with the owls was pretty cool), this one just looks too bizarre and silly to be taken seriously.
  • Dezzy the ever so busy Hollywood Spy is always hard at work in bringing us the latest tv/movie news. Well yesterday he reported an intriguing (or preposterous, depending how you look at it) upcoming project called War of the Ages, the premise of this 3D swords and sandals flick is certainly a head-scratching one, but if they can pull it off, wow… that’d be one not to be missed!
  • The always discerning Univarn @ Life in Equinox never fails to compel us to get our thinking cap on. This week he asked the question: Is everyone a critic? A must read for every blogger and moviegoer who’s been asked ‘what do you think of [such and such] movie?’ at least once in their life.
  • Darren from themOvieblog cogitated on the power of a tagline upon seeing Terrence Stamp’s poster The Limey. He’s right, I immediately picture General Zod er.. Stamp uttering ‘Tell Them I’m Coming’ in the only way he could. Btw, Darren also recently won Best Pop Culture award at the Irish Blog awards… woot! woot! Go on and congratulate him if you haven’t already.
  • Elizabeth Taylor died Wednesday of congestive heart failure at the age of 79. Fandango Groover paid tribute to the screen legend with images from her classic roles.
  • Last but not least, check out the various contributions of this edition of LAMB Acting School featuring Gary Oldman. Thanks to CS from Big Thoughts From a Small Mind for organizing this event. This is the first time I took part on it, so if you haven’t already, check out my tribute to one of the finest actor working today.

Anyway, I’m sure glad the weekend is upon us. I’m tickled pink that I’ll finally be watching Jane Eyre tomorrow with my pal Prairiegirl. I also have the classic Thomas Crown Affair I didn’t get around to watching last week, and the Keanu Reeves sort of movie marathon continues with the action horror flick Constantine.

So before you click away to these fine posts, first tell me, what are your movie watching plans this weekend?
