Sdtrk: ‘Chakkiri cha cha’ by The Peanuts

Err, let’s see here..

+ One of my favourite films is finally coming out on Digital Veritech Disk — Bedazzled! No no, the original, good one from 1967, with Dudley Moore (back when he was funny) and Peter Cook. Hooray hoorah hoorum!
Although I have to say, the remake of Bedazzled! did have that luscious Liz Hurley in its favour. But that’s it, really. Man. One day I’m gonna sit down and write that post about why I don’t really like remakes..

+ Another film to look forward to in the cinemas: this Russian venture called ‘Night watch‘, which is apparently the first in a trilogy. Hope it’s as good as the trailer

+ Want to know whether or not a DVD is shite? See what my pal Jeff has to say, over at

And, in case you’ve not already noticed, I’ve added a new genus of links over in the lefthand sidebar, called ‘Musique non-stop’, where you’ll find my favourite .mp3 blogs. blowupdoll specialises in female vocalists, mostly European, and usually from the Sixties and Seventies. bubblegum machine has the lock on obscurities from the Sixties and Seventies as well — he’s got a real AM vibe, baby. 20 Jazz Funk Greats is not only named after one of my favourite Throbbing gristle albums, but the psychotics running it hosts a cadre of tunes, ranging from electroclash to new wave, to psych-rock to math-rock. And Music For Maniacs pretty much does what it says on the tin. Right-click and enjoy!

Why are you still reading this? Why aren’t you out seeing Kung-fu hustle*? *shakes fist*

*as an aside, the film ‘Kung-fu hustle’ was directed by Stephen Chow, who also directed and starred in ‘Shaolin soccer’, and my personal favourite, ‘God of cookery’, as well as many other films. When I was in between jobs one Summer, for lack of anything else to do, I watched ‘God of cookery’ and Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Full metal jacket’ once a day, every day, for a week. Just thought you’d like to know that

    No, the original Bedazzled does not have Elizabeth Hurley, but it *does* have a in-her-prime Raquel Welch, as ‘Lust’ in it. I think that makes up for it 100 fold 😉

    Plus, the original is something the remake is not. Entertaining.

    Exactly, on both points.

    And, the original was funny, as well 😛

    Liz Hurley, def a plus… her and Raquel together as Lust, now THAT would be something to see! Ah, assuming a time machine, I suppose :-O

    Liz Hurley and Raquel Welch make everything better. 😉
