Cutting Room Floor for October 28, 2010 Vol 36

I believe that children are our future. I also believe that dogs have ESP. Only one of those things matters right now, and lucky for you it’s the former. The non-profit organization The Partnership for Our Kids is looking for volunteers who feel the way I do (about children, not dogs). Wednesday, Nov. 17, from noon to 1:30 p.m., the organization will hold a get together at Film Streams Ruth Sokolof Theater (filmstreams.org) that includes the screening of a short biographical film and free lunch. You do have to register to attend, so hit up thepartnershipforourkids.org or call 930.3095 to confirm. Feel free to tell them I sent you, but I’d leave out the dog psychic thing. As good as it is to hear that crap-master Stephen Norrington will no longer be directing the reboot of The Crow, a movie I loved so much I learned to tolerate Goths, it’s sad that we may lose the Nick Cave script and sadder that we may gain Mark Wahlberg as the lead. None of these things are for sure, other than Norrington’s blessed departure, but I am positive that there are a whole lot of Hot Topics bonuses that rely on this flick finally getting made. Colin Farrell is apparently the frontrunner to take over Arnold Schwarzenegger’s role in the remake of Total Recall, which marks the first and only time those two names have appeared in the same sentence. I am modestly interested in this do-over, and not just because it’s going to be based more on the Philip K. Dick source material, but because I believe we cannot have enough Quatto in our lives. Cutting Room provides breaking local and national movie news … complete with added sarcasm. Send any relevant information to film@thereader.com.

How much more can failed 1980s television show “The Greatest American Hero” give us as a people? Not only was it groundbreaking for its willingness to cast a dude with a perm as a superhero, but it...

For years, one rivalry has dwarfed all others. No, it’s not The Chicago Bears and The Green Bay Packers or Right and Left Twix. It’s “readers” versus “watchers,” as in those who (gasp) read books and...
