Elsewhere, 1/27

I hope that The Ross brings 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days — which won the Palme D’Or at the 2007 Cannes festival — to Lincoln soon, and here are two reasons why.

Brett McCracken reviews Cloverfield: “Cloverfield packs a wallop, in part because it takes our media-obsessed curiosity and slaps it in our face. We are increasingly prone to gawk, to see what the fuss is about, to be in on’ whatever gruesome or unlikely anomaly is out there to be recorded. This is why Cloverfield’s cryptic what is this about’ marketing campaign worked so well. We have to know. We have to look. We must be a witness. People will want to see how it all went down… It’s entertainment.”

EA responds to that piss-poor Fox News piece on Mass Effect — which you can watch here (just try to keep your lunch down). Not surprisingly, things are at a bit of an impasse.

Speaking of video games, I have a feeling that Star Wars: Force Unleashed is going to be the game of 2008 — if these videos are any indication, that is.
