"I had them right it into my contract" - Come on Quint. "And like so no it was..." seriously dude, we don't need to have syllable, pause and dropped word reproduced verbatim from your tape recorder. The shit is fucking horrible to read. Just crop that stuff out.

I was about to rant about why Quint didn't ask him about Gaiman's Neverwhere when i realized that this interview was made at the con... damn....

Lotta talkbackers are cranky this morning... Sorry you couldn't read the interview (notice a lack of quotes because whether you want to believe it or not, I did sit down and ask questions that were answered by another person) because 5% of it was about my head appearing in his movie somewhere.<BR><BR>Damn, I'm cranky, too. Time to get some sleep...

Slade = silly two-hit wonder band, whose biggest claim to fame is that Quiet Riot covered a couple of their songs.<p> Spade(,David) = Saturday Night Live alumnus/ co-star to Chris Farley in Tommy Boy, etc.../ Dennis on "Just Shoot Me." Not to mention a close, personal friend of Heather Locklear...<p> To sum up...<p> Slade: wrote tunes<p> Spade: wrote jokes.

Chupa 1: They have weapons.<P> Chupa 2: So what?<P> Chupa 1 gets blown the fuck away.<P> Chupa 2: FUCK!<P> Chupa 2 rolls for his little furry life.<P> Sorry TheBloop, they already made it. Four times. With Leo DiCaprio. Now we need a Skinwlaker Ranch movie.<P> David Slade makes hardcore horror, it seems. Can we get him for a remake of a GOOD Carpenter flick now? How about CHRISTINE?<P> REALLY looking forward to 30 DAYS too. That's a great trailer.

how you stopped him from cutting you off with the point-blank "pirate musical". He didn't cut you off after that. Seriously though, Slade is great and Josh Hartnett is underrated and I can't wait for this.

Yeah, thanks for that. I was well aware. <rolls eyes> Too early for y'all is it?

Great guy, with a lot of great stuff coming up. I think we're the only magazine that's got this on the cover and not Halloween. This and Sweeney Todd are the only things I'm looking forward to this fall/winter season.

who is doing Sweeny Todd? Movie? Musical?

And I loved 30 days of Night, have high hopes for this flick ^^

...you've been doing some quality work of late with this stuff Quint, kudos. You do need a better copy editor though, so many obvious spelling/gramatical mistakes really do take away from the quality of what you're doing a bit. Still both this and the whacked out Fonda interviews were good stuff all the same.
Aug. 16, 2007, 12:07 p.m. CST
it's going to be Burton and it's also a musical. The posters and still that I've seen look amazing. So I have high hopes. He's somehow managed to get that great dark and grey lifeless look from The Corpse Bride to transfer to reality.
Aug. 16, 2007, 12:41 p.m. CST
And no, there were no more goat suckers that the Shaggy Dog was werewolf. Count Floyd would back me on that one. AAAWHHHOOOO!
Aug. 16, 2007, 12:44 p.m. CST
In total agreement. Outside of Luck Number Sleven, Hartnett's been totally "meh" as far as I'm concerned. He's basically Josh Brolin with a better agent.

Not at all too early... I was just trying to goof on the similarity of the names... that was all I had at the time<p> ...maybe it *was* too early after all... ...and for no reason at all, I'll close by saying...<p> Ma-Ma-Mama Weer All Crazee Now!!!!

Cool guy. 30 DAYS OF NIGHT looks awesome.
Aug. 16, 2007, 4:49 p.m. CST
If you want to bash on way too many flicks being made...why don't we start with stoner comedies? But if we did that what would Seth Rogen do for the next ten years? The fact is we NEED a good vampire flick to wash the taint of things like that fucking awful acting done by the dude who played Craven in Underworld. Vampires need what we got when Shaun of the Dead came out for the zombies. And I'm hoping that Benicio Del Toro's Wolfman movie will do for werewolves. Cause god knows, Skin Walkers sucked donkey balls. And before you all start, I actually like Seth Rogen. Just using the insane glut of stoner flicks as an example.

how i want a good vampire movie, but with David Slade directing, most likely this will be shit. Hard Candy is an insult to anybody who knows anybody who has dealt with any form of molestation (despite what you may think, many don't want their perpetrator's balls cut off...violence begets violence, etc.) and the man has directed some of the worst music videos ever. When you work with a band like Muse you would think it would be hard to make creatively lacking videos. 30 Days of Night would be cool if someone better directed.
Aug. 16, 2007, 5:53 p.m. CST
...and was rewarded with the funniest image ever.
Aug. 16, 2007, 7:05 p.m. CST
was uncomfortable to watch. i hope this "30 days of night" is as good as i thought it would be when i thought it up over 10 years ago. i guess more than one person can come up with the same idea... meh.
Aug. 16, 2007, 10:58 p.m. CST
<p>Quint: You could add some rainbows or something into it maybe. <p> David Slade: Yeah, so no. <p> I lol'ed at that one.
Aug. 16, 2007, 11:01 p.m. CST
I liked Hard Candy quite a bit, though it reached too far at times. I really hope all his talk during the interview about character and story focus holds up with this one. Gore for gore is boring, but you add a driving motivation and you have something...
Aug. 17, 2007, 1:24 a.m. CST
When I first read that, I thought "WTF? Spade's in this movie? What's he playing, a vampire, a townie? What?" Then I read it again and I saw David Slade, so I said, "Oh, okay..." But it would be an interesting movie if David Spade was in it, though, and he played it straight! (Yes, I know I'm like the third or fourth person to notice the Slade-Spade deal, but I had to write it -- this was just to funny to leave alone! :) )

It's just great. How can you not love a film where they fire a rocket launcher at a toilet because there is a "critter" in it.

This Saturday 10/27 at 7 pm pacific, a great interview with Bruce Campbell and Mike Richardson of Dark Horse comics airs on the radio variety show Live Wire, on Oregon Public Broadcasting. If you're local you know where to find it, but the rest of you can listen online at: http://tinyurl.com/ynwbmg (I feel like a tool using tiny url when the real address is www.opb.org much tinier than the tiny, but it seems like the thing to do.) Anyways, there's a link to listen live and it's totally worth a listen. Bruce and Mike talk a lot about "My Name is Bruce", Sam Raimi as an abusive stick wielding director, 30 Days of Night, Hellboy and more. Bruce even steps into some sketch comedy with Faces for Radio Theater and goes OFF on people who like to call him Ash. The musical guest is the band Loch Lomond.
