A Bold (Maybe) New Frontier

Director John Landis, who always seems interested in pushing the art of directing in new and interesting ways, has a neat gig going at JibJab. The Great Sketch Experiment is a contest featuring six sketches--all directed by Landis and starring professional actors--that the public can watch, then cast a vote for which is best.

Shawshank In A Minute is a hip-hop version of the classic flick The Shawshank Redemption, and is one of the most interesting things I've seen in a while. The actor who narrates the video sounds very much like Morgan Freeman, and the video quality is terrific. Check it out here
. I think it's worth the look.

For a second I thought someone made a movie of DC's New Frontier. How dare you get my hopes up!

Wow, Cliff's notes couldn't do a better--or more entertaining-- summary of Shawshank! Thanks for sharing!
