Interesting week, folks.
First, the trash talk of Mags and Daniel spilled over to Twitter. Then, they each threw some tough punches at the game (and at each other). And for part of the week, it looked like Mags would finally make it onto the leaderboard.
But then, as they were rolling around in the mud, Zach entered the fray. He claimed his first week victory was beginner’s luck. Now he’s rendered me speechless. I leave it to Zach’s own words to tell us what he’s got:
“Keanu Reeves was in
Tune in Tomorrow
with the late (great?) Richard B. Shull who was in
with Candy Darling (credited only as “Discotheque Patron”)
she was also in Amour, an Andy Warhol film featuring
German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld who did voice work for
Totally Spies: Le Film, the made for tv movie of a popular french cartoon (same name in North America) that also had a brief theatrical run
Jean-Claude Donda played the role of Jerry, leader of an international spy organization. He also did voice work as the main character of last year’s gorgeous Sylvain Chomet film….
where the main character (a cartoon) wanders into a movie theatre and catches a live action Jacques Tati on screen in a clip from Mon Oncle”
Warhol? Tati on-screen in an animated movie based upon Tati? Too good!
So, our leader board is now Daniel 3, Zach 2, DudeFozz 1.
The Rest of You Suckas? Still waiting.
This week we interrupt this program for a bit of shameless promotion. Take us from two Forgotten Flix moments of the past week. Take us from Godzilla (star of this week’s Two Friends Talkin’ Movies) to William Katt (inspiration for this week’s podcast).
There you have it. As always, send your links to me at Dave@forgottenflix.com. Happy linking and see you next week.
About Dave Umbricht
Dave Umbricht is a self proclaimed "guy who knows a couple of things". However, he has never claimed to know them well. Genetically predisposed to love movies, at age ten he felt really cool being the only fourth grader who knew of the film "My Dinner with Andre", thanks to Siskel & Ebert. For the next twenty years he pretended to have seen the movie until he finally watched it at age 28 and understood what all the fuss was about. He attempted to watch all of the films on Ebert's Great Movies list by age 40. He failed.
