The New Beverly, The Magnificent Prick and Tomorrow Night in LaLaLand!

Published at: Aug. 13, 2007, 4:08 p.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here... The coolest thing about traveling the country is typing the miles away chatting with all my friends around the world, reading emails and watching miles and miles of porn. For the 7900 miles we've gone over so far... it's been a blast. Now - recently you got a true life look at Edgar Wright. And I called it as I see it. Now there's no denying his Prick-ishness. But, he's a lovable prick. In fact, he's the sort of prick you'd love to swish around in your mouth and just snuggle with. And to demonstrate what a prick he is - he's doing a double feature of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ... technically, a quadruple feature of HOT FUZZ and SHAUN OF THE DEAD - that he's doing an intro and a Q&A for... And why is he doing this? Because, he's a caring, loving and adorable prick that just doesn't quit cumming up with ways to care. And if there's one thing that Edgar Wright cares about, it's anything and everything about films, the audience and filmmaking. SO - I encourage all of you to get out there to the New Beverly tomorrow day and night and give him a dose of his own medicine. Ask him about the 3rd Season of SPACED. Ask him any question, then ask him to speak more clearly. Ask him when he's doing his one-man show of DR JEKYLL & MR HYDE and complement his Mr Hyde look he currently is sporting. But most of all... ask him about ANT-MAN and how it's shooting pre-strike!

New Beverly: SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ double bill tomorrow! Long Live The New Beverly!!! I'll be introducing the 3.30 double bill - with vintage zombie and cop trailers. Is going to be fun Am also going to intro the 7.30 double bill too. Do come along - the cinema needs lots of supports (as does rep cinema in general!) Edgar

    What a magnificent prick

    by ErnieAnderson

    Long live the New Bev.

  • Aug. 11, 2007, 9:21 p.m. CST

    Thanks, Harry.

    by Bronx Cheer

    Just what we need--more fellatio imagery. Do you understand that when YOU write about pole-smoking, it's not terribly hot? Or funny for that matter? It's simply purely revolting. Makes me never want to blow a cop to get out of a speeding ticket again.

    How's the honeymoon going Harry?

    by half vader

    Obviously not well if you're watching so much porn. If you're going to pretend you're watching it together, don't bother. We do NOT want to hear about it. Ewwwwww. Although Edgar probably likes all your cock imagery, considering.

    by Bass Bastardson

    I'm sure if she's reading this, she is super fucking creeped out by you right now. Way to go.

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 12:06 a.m. CST

    The Ticket Girls Tits!

    by Missing Dink

    Somebody get a damn camera phone and shoot that girly!

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 12:24 a.m. CST

    Maybe you can answer this, CQuest?

    by Freddie Mercury

    Why do fat guys always describe hot chicks with food analogies/metaphors? Quint does it, Moriarty does it, and Harry definitely does it. It's always "delicious," or "scruptious" or "yummy." Harry once even described an actress as "yummy yummy in my tummy." I appreciate a hot piece of ass as much as the next guy, but c'mon. Does you eating problem HAVE to bleed over into how you talk about women? It's fucking obnoxious and creepy. But hey, I'm sure YOU'RE not a big fat guy yourself, are you, freindo?

    Judging by your User ID, I'm guessing you're not much into the ladies, are you friendo?

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 7:28 a.m. CST

    Ah, that Edgar

    by Kragmose

    He's cool.

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 8:28 a.m. CST

    Whats all this Prick nonsense ?

    by barnaby jones

    Is it because hes a bit plumy ??

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 10:54 a.m. CST

    Yeah Harry, what IS with all the porn?

    by tylerzero

    For fucks sake, it's your honeymoon. At least wait until you get home to start wacking off behind your wife's back.

    twas a joke regarding what one would do with an internet connection on a 9000 mile roadtrip.

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 11:39 a.m. CST

    DUNNO ABOUT THE STATES...

    by greigy just wanted to say

    ...but if you call someone a prick in the UK you're more than likely to be spending the rest of your honeymoon supping soup through a straw... am I missing something in translation here..??

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 11:40 a.m. CST

    Thank God for the New Bev

    by jesuschrist

    I live about four blocks from this theater. You'll never see better double bills than on that marquee. It's truly one of the things that make me glad to live in LA. That,and no snow.

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 11:40 a.m. CST

    EXCEPT POTATO SOUP....

    by greigy just wanted to say

    That might be a bit trickier...

    i dont think i really understand harrys sense of humour

    by brainofmorbius

    maybe it is because i am english.

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 12:26 p.m. CST

    Harry's sense of humor is best described as...

    by Bronx Cheer

    pubescent. And sticky. (Sorry...that's 'humour' for you Brits.)

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 2:09 p.m. CST

    Just for clarity's sake...

    by Wingnut1A

    All I heard was "Tomorrow night," Does that mean Sunday night, or Monday night?

    by Freddie Mercury

    Are you really a garbage man?

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 3:31 p.m. CST

    So just to be clear...

    by clone-o-mat

    Harry, you're telling us the best thing about traveling the country with your new bride is being on the internet? Wow. Headgeek indeed

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 4:53 p.m. CST

    No Freddy, I'm not a garbageman

    by Garbageman33

    I'm actually a flamboyantly gay lead singer for an English rock band. Why do you ask?

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 4:59 p.m. CST

    There was information in there, somewhere...

    by brokentusk

    ANT-MAN is filming pre-strike? That's good news, I had no idea it was officially Edgar's next film. Harry, I'm just going to go ahead and assume you're teasing Edgar since he'll probably be reading this article :)

    by Freddie Mercury

    So shut the fuck up or have a point. Or answer the question.

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 5:52 p.m. CST

    YESSS, I GOT REPLIED TO BY HARRY!!!

    by tylerzero

    I'm not washing my monitor, ever.

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 6:30 p.m. CST

    The point is this...

    by Garbageman33

    Why exactly do you need to launch a baseless, personal attack on a fellow talkbacker simply for the way he describes a girl's boobies? Worse yet, why do you need to call out three of the founders of the site you so happily troll?

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 7:13 p.m. CST

    Garbageman...

    by LlGHTST0RMER

    >>"No Freddy, I'm not a garbageman. I'm actually a flamboyantly gay lead singer for an English rock band. Why do you ask?" <P> Holy fuck, that was funny. Nice turnaround.

  • Aug. 12, 2007, 7:17 p.m. CST

    I so happily troll?

    by Freddie Mercury

    It was an observation. Just like the observation that you tried to explain your point with two questions. I wasnt the one who came out with "ooh, so what, your teh gay." Why do I need to? I don't NEED to, I just WANTED to. Why "call out" the big three? I dunno, I think they can probably handle it. It's not like I made a "baseless" challenge of their sexuality or anything. It was a joke, son.

  • Aug. 13, 2007, 1:25 a.m. CST

    Why have we stopped talking about the tits?

    by Missing Dink

    Huh?

  • Aug. 13, 2007, 4:18 a.m. CST

    It'll be interesting to see how....

    by Vamp-AICNchat

    Edgar Wright does without the 'Hot Fuzz' boys. I must be the only one who thinks Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead are overrated. I'm not saying they're shit, I like them.....but come on.

  • Aug. 13, 2007, 6:09 a.m. CST

    Missing Dink, she is a person and not "the tits" and

    by Bronx Cheer

    some of us are gentlemen.

    The crack must be good.

    Really.

    Edgar Wright

    by Vamp-AICNchat

    I love the editing in his movies. It'll be very good to see how if he uses the same techniques as the previous films. I was probably sounded a bit of a grump earlier. I do like his two previous films but I....fuck it, what do I know. As a fellow Englishman I hope he continues with the new wave hitting America like Matthew Vaughn and Chris Nolan. Another director who is panned by fanboys (but I think is great) is Nick Love. He is a very good director.
