Midweek Tidbits

I am the poster child for childhood phobias induced by movies. I saw "Jaws" at a young age and for years couldn't watch footage of sharks or even look at images of them without having to look away. I can now handle pictures of them (my heart rate still increases) and have since snorkeled in the ocean without having to make a hasty exit, but the movie did impact me for life. And then there was "Psycho"... I couldn't close the shower curtain for months after watching it.

Does anyone else find it disturbing that the world's most expensive coffee is made from the excrement of this animal? Apparently Muslims do. 

You've heard of Spell Check? What about Tone Check?

"Hansel and Gretel" to be remade by Michael Bay. Looks very Tim Burton-esque.

A South Korean reimagining of Hansel and Gretel:

. . . saw it at SIFF last year. Very creepy.
