For your Consideration:
Linking in the city is what I love to do!

New Poll: Let's do a fun one - Of the possible jobs in relation to film which would you most like to have?

Interesting Film Fact of the Week:
In the original King Kong, the beasts height changes between the jungle scenes, and New York, because the director wanted him to look larger next to the skyscrapers. In the jungle his relative height would be 18feet, while in NY his relative height would be 24-25feet.

Enjoy your day.

You prefer Collateral to Heat? That is an interesting choice I must say...

DEZMOND said...

ah, Uni, you weren't thinking about me when you were making the new poll - where's the costume designer in the poll? :))

Univarn said...

@Intel To me both are on the same level, it's just a matter of immediate draw. Heat has always taken my time to get into, on each viewing. While Collateral sucks me in right away every time.

@Dez Hence the OTHER :P

That was hard choosing what my ideal film-related job is. I ended up choosing DVD Store Owner/Manager as a bit of a tribute to my recent appreciation to High Fidelity.

Thanks for the linkage!

Darren said...

Thank you very much for the link. I did not know that King Kong fact - that's being filed away for later.

Simon said...

So that's the secret to linkage, eh?

Brilliant posts all around.

Heather said...

For the record I found Darren's article to be brilliant and well worth the read.

Thanks for the link love. Most appreciated. And of course that would be the number one. Just thinking of it is making me smile.
