If you’ve never seen a dude getting blown by a dog, now’s your chance. If you’ve never seen a dude getting blown by a dog get national news coverage, you’ve been living in the dark ages.
Here’s the short version- some “famous” Australian rugby player got wasted and had his teammate’s dog blow him as a prank (that’ll show ‘em!) Consider the prank bar raised, because I don’t think anyone’s gonna top that bit of jackassery any time soon. For some reason, photographic documentation of the incident still exists on Twitter, so click on this link HERE if you hate your eyes. You can almost hear Sarah McLaughlin singing In The Arms of the Angels in the background. If you are interested in more than just the erotic entertainment value of a man getting blown by a dog, you can get the full story HERE.
Deep Impact and Armageddon. Volcano and Dante’s Peak. Mission To Mars and Red Planet. Marmaduke and The Human Centipede. All suspiciously similar movies released within a year or two of each other. Now joining their illustrious ranks- Exam and The Method. Two films about a group of people locked in a room competing for the same job. Which is the better movie? I know what Stuart Hazeldine thinks. Find out in my interview with Exam‘s writer/director over at Twitch.
When he’s not busy scripting Hollywood blockbusters for the likes of Alex Proyas and Scott Derrickson, UK based screenwriter Stuart Hazeldine is wringing his hands menacingly and plotting his own directorial career. Allusions to cartoonish super-villainy aside, Hazeldine has crafted a diabolical debut in Exam, which sees a DVD release in the US on Tuesday, November 16th through IFC. It is a taut meditation on survival and ambition that takes place entirely in one room in real time. I recently spoke with Stuart about once and future projects, the industry, and how a British filmmaker became one of Hollywood’s most sought-after script doctors.
