Oscar night approaches...
...time for random movie notes:
1. Brentfave Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Cure) talks about Clint Eastwood and Letters From Iwo Jima.
2. In addition to hyperblogging at Termite Art and hosting IFC News, Team Dizzies member Matt is now podcasting over at IFC (with cohost Alison Willmore). Favorite recent Matt-ism: describing Bong Joon-ho's exhilarating monster movie, The Host, as "Little Miss Sunshine meets Godzilla...meets An Inconvenient Truth"!
3. Jane Dark has a refreshingly contrarian take on Dreamgirls—critics unfair to Beyoncé!
