Big ups to The Hurt Locker. I thought it deserved the win.
But it was another bit of movie news that had me titillated beyond a dry pair of pants.
Ladies and Gentlemen.Captain EO makes his long-awaited return to Disneyland.
If you died today without having seen Captain EO, you’ve only half-fulfilled your life.
Here’s a brief review from Rolling Stones:
Captain EO isn’t your typical music video: The 17-minute film was directed by The Godfather’s Francis Ford Coppola and co-written by Star Wars mastermind George Lucas. In the film, [Michael] Jackson stars as the title character who must deliver a gift to the wicked universe-enslaving Witch Queen, played by Anjelica Huston. Of course, Jackson’s EO has ulterior motives, namely delivering freedom to the universe and ending the Queen’s reign.
MJ using pelvic thrusts to deliver freedom to the universe. What else do you need to know?
And for all those Avatar honks who were disappointed in last night’s results, keep in mind that Captain EO was decades before its time. MJ was moon-walking in 3-D while Sam Worthington was still suckling on his mother’s 2-dimensional teet.
Book your tickets to Disneyland today people. The $90 entry fee is suddenly so so worth it.
