Putting the “Twit” in “Twitter”

Chirpy chirpy cheep cheepTo prove that we’re down with the kids and their handheld convergence devices, the NOW film team (Glenn, Susan and myself) has been instructed to tweet. So I’m tweeting.

It’s kind of inane, but I think that may be the point. You can find our tiny, pointless musings here — if you’re already on Twitter, the follow code is @nowfilm. Is that what they call it? A follow code?

Anyway, if you’re curious, try to figure out which posts are mine. The zombie one is a given, obviously. And then, when you’re ready to read something moderately more substantial, check out my latest MSN Movies gallery, which uses “Whiteout” as a springboard to look at thrillers set in remote locations. (I’m particularly proud of the “Snakes on a Plane” item.)

And now I’m off to bag more interviews, starting with Joel and Ethan Coen. Yes, really. Some days are just more awesome than others, you know?

  1. Love that you included both Jaws and Open Water on your list – two movies that got under my skin in different ways. And Sunshine is just one of my favorite movies, period.

  2. Norm, the impression I’ve been getting is that business-wise, this is one of the worst TIFF’s in years. The World Premieres have disappointed, and there have been very few deals among producers and U.S. distributors.

  3. Yes, I’ve gotten the same feeling by talking to various folks in the rush lines.

    The worthwhile films this year had distribution before they even got announced.

    Here’s hoping Creation, White Ribbon and Max Manus get lucky!

    On a separate note, I must admit i feel guilty, I just loved The Invention of Lying, Ricky Gervais nailed it. Gets a bit dragged down by the end, but not enough to really make it a bad film. I thought of it as a clever 90 minute long Liar Liar.
