"Splice" Interview with Sarah Polley 


Sarah Polley plays Elsa, a brilliant, young scientist. Together with her partner Clive (Adrien Brody), they created an animal-human hybrid named DREN (Delphine Chanéac). In this interview, Sarah Polley talked about:

*** Her interest in making "Splice"
*** The humanity of the "monster" and the inhumanity of the humans
*** The magical qualities of the film
*** The reprehensible things humans do in the movie
*** Being an accomplished writer/director
*** The coded message of the film

HAVE FUN! (To read my "Splice" movie review, click here)



Here's more info on the film from Yahoo:

Clive and Elsa are a pair of brilliant scientists whose cutting-edge experiments in genetic engineering make them superstars in their field. As devoted to their careers as they are to one another, they start conducting unauthorized experiments with new animal species that show great promise. Drunk with their god-like powers, they introduce human DNA into one of their creations, producing a creature that is greater than the sum of its parts: a rapidly developing animal/human hybrid that may be a step up on the evolutionary ladder. While this female creature inspires maternal feelings in Elsa, she evokes something far-from-paternal in Clive, something that poses a threat to them all. Then, when this seemingly perfect organism makes a final, shocking metamorphosis, it is mankind itself that is threatened.

"Splice" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Does the Monster Get? 


“Splice” splices various genres to come up with a riveting film that unfortunately faltered near the end. Part “Frankenstein,” part “The Fly,” “Splice” is a new addition to the growing list of films with the “man as God” plotline.


Playing gods are superstar genetic engineers Clive (Academy-Award winner Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley). They specialize in splicing DNA from different animals to create new hybrids.

The first half of the film is darkly magical when we first meet Clive and Elsa and we get to witness their new hybrids, Fred and Ginger. Clive and Elsa have a great relationship both on and off-work and their new pride and joy are new hybrids that look like giant worms. Read More...

Rumpelstiltskin Speaks! My Fun Interview with Walt Dohrn for "Shrek Forever After!" 


Rumpelstiltskin, voiced by head of story Walt Dohrn, was my favorite character in the DreamWorks Animation hit "Shrek Forever After." Here's my fun interview with Dorhn as we talked about:

His involvement with the film
Is this really the final "Shrek" film?
Will he be working on the "Puss in Boots" spin-off?
What he'll miss most about working on the "Shrek" films?

Have fun!



Here's more info on "Shrek" from Yahoo:

After challenging an evil dragon, rescuing a beautiful princess and saving your in-laws' kingdom, what's an ogre to do? Well, if you're Shrek, you suddenly wind up a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he used to, a reluctant Shrek now agrees to autograph pitch forks. What's happened to this ogre's roar? Longing for the days when he felt like a "real ogre," Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona have never met. Now, it's up to Shrek to undo all he's done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one True Love.

Victoria's Secret Reveals Secret of "Transformers 3" Casting! Check Out Congratulations Video to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley 


Paramount Pictures hasn't confirmed the casting of 23-year-old English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, but already, Victoria's Secret released a video congratulating their "angel" for getting the part in "Transformers 3."

Huntington-Whiteley is supposed to be cast as Shia LaBeouf's love interest, replacing Megan Fox. Michael Bay is directing from a script by Ehren Krueger. Shooting for the third installment has already begun.

If Huntington-Whiteley is officially hired, she'll be joining LaBeouf, Patrick Dempsey, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, and Ken Jeong. Kevin Dunn (Ron Witwicky) and Julie White (Judy Witwicky) will return as LaBeouf's character's parents.

For now, feast your eyes to lots of Huntington-Whiteley in this video that Victoria's Secret, perhaps, prematurely released.

Click here to watch the full video.
