Movie To Do List

Bright Young Things:
Stephen Fry’s adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s “Vile Bodies.” Wooo! One splendid book!
Released August 20th (but not in Bay Area yet, grrr)

Hero:
Hong Kong blockbuster finally makes out of the Miramax gates. Looks lush.
Release August 27th

End of the Century:
Gritty documentary on the Ramones. Another review. The Ramones were my first show. I was 14. I’ve seen them live more than any other band.
Release August 27th

Vanity Fair:
Adaptation by Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) of Thackeray’s famous novel without a hero. Also the basis for Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone with the Wind.” Also, my favorite Victorian novel. Mmmmm. Jonathon Rhys Meyers makes an appearance. It is about time! Yummy.
Release September 1st

Libertine:
The ultimate Bodice Ripper, a bio pic on John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester. Naughtiest poet to have ever lived and one of my absolute favorite historical characters. He epitomizes the term “rake.” Johnny Depp as Rochester, and Shane McGowan makes an appearance as a “bard.” No official site or information really. I am anxious. Depp site w/ lots o’ pix.
Release October 2004 in the UK

The Corpse Bride:
Tim Burton animation! Voices of Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter! Creepy! Can’t wait. “Set in 19th-century European village, Victor (Depp), is lured into the underworld by a mysterious figure (Bonham Carter), while his corporeal wife (Watson) awaits his return.” Also, voices of Richard E. Grant! Joanna Lumley! Christopher Lee! Albert Finney! I die!
Release October 2005

Rumour: Marie Antoinette
Directed by Sophia Coppola. Mmmmm.
Am I missing anything?
