Are You a Maverick?

You betcha.  No.  Not the kind of Maverick that shoots wolves from helicopters, winks at opponents, and writes notes on their hands.   I’m talking about the kind of Maverick that shoots enemy MiG’s while flying upside down, flips the bird, and still looks hot while playing beach volleyball.  Now you’re talking to me Goose. 

Well if you fall into the second category then you are going to want to check out this year’s Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose.  Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Cinequest has been empowering the Maverick to astound, electrify, and inspire the world of cinema.  The Cinequest Film Festival presents a dynamic 12-day event of 200 international films with over 600+ film artists, technologists, and professionals from 44 countries.

Opening night begins tomorrow 2/23/2010 with the screening of “The Good Heart” starring Brian Cox (Match Point, Troy, The Bourne Identity) and Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, Gigantic).  This year Deepak Chopra and Benjamin Bratt will be receiving Maverick awards and honors.  The festival closes on 3/6/2010 with the screening of “Mother,” a South Korean film about a mother (of course) devoted to her mentally challenged adult son.

Rock and Roll at The Sundance Film Festival Twenty-Ten January 22, 2010

The Sundance Film Festival started yesterday in Park City Utah and runs through January 31, 2010.  One of the films premiering at the festival and catching a lot of buzz is the rock biopic “The Runaways.”  You remember The Runaways–1970’s all-girl teenage rock band, known as “jailbait rock” because Joan Jett, Sandy West, Lita Ford, and Cherie Currie were underage when they started the band.

Starring Kristen Stewart (“Twilight”) as Joan Jett, and Dakota Fanning (“I Am Sam”) as Cherie Currie, the film will have its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival on January 24th, and will open in wide release on March 19, 2010.

Cast of ‘Jersey Shore’ to Star in Sequel to ‘Idiocracy’ January 21, 2010

Idiocracy The Original…

Mike Judge, creator of “Beavis and Butt-head,” “Office Space,” and “King of the Hill” has stated that the entire cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” will star in his up-coming sequel to “Idiocracy” tentatively titled “Idiocracier – The Shore Drops a Deuce.”  Mr. Judge admitted that he had not intended to write a sequel to his 2006 sleeper-hit starring Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph, but that he was inspired after watching the fist-pumping and face-punching antics of Snooki, The Situation, and JWOWW of MTV’s reality show “Jersey Shore.”

Mr. Judge did not want to reveal too much about the sequel, but did give a little insight about the premise.  In the final scene of “Idiocracy,” we see that Rita’s pimp, Upgrayedd, has built a time machine and travels to the future searching for Rita to pay back the money she owes him from 500 years ago.  The sequel picks up with Upgayedd finding Rita and Joe and threatening to give them a “double dose” beat-down if they don’t come up with his money, plus interest.  Rita and Joe narrowly escape by taking off in Upgayedd’s time machine and land back in the present year of 2010 on the Jersey Shore.

Rita and Joe are astonished to find that the world has degraded so much in the 5 years they were gone—the Jersey Shore now resembles the dystopia they left behind—the residents speak unintelligibly, have ridiculous nicknames, sustain themselves on junk food, wear garish clothes, find pleasure in violence, and do nothing but tan, get drunk, and “beat the beat” in the dance clubs.  Realizing that the cast of “Jersey Shore” is to blame for the present decline of civilization, Joe and Rita kidnap Snooki and the gang, and bring them to already destroyed planet 500 years into the future.  It is Joe and Rita’s hope that ridding the world of the “Jersey Shore” cast will ultimately save our planet.

Be sure to watch the season finale of “Jersey Shore” on MTV tonight at 10:00 p.m. for all your hair gel, tanning, neon lycra dress, and bedazzled shirt wearing fashion tips!
