Parenthesis Everywhere: It’s a Link Post

Over at the Front Row, Richard Brody rips the newest Toy Story (which I quite liked) a new one:

“Toy Story 3” is a narrowing, reactionary, pathologically clean movie. It isn’t a movie that shrinks from frightening children . . . but all its scares serve to teach children to stay home, and only stay home. . .

Colin Smith revisits Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch’s The Authority, “one of the sweetest comic books of the modern era.” (Check the comments for a remark from Ellis himself [and one or two from me]!)

Bill Murray (sort of) addresses the ultimate apocryphal Bill Murray story in an interview with Black Book:

There is one story that gets bandied about more than others: It was late one night in New York City. A man walked alone through Union Square, empty at this hour. The man felt a pair of hands reach out from behind and cup his eyes, blinding him for a moment. Frightened, he turned around to find Bill Murray, who said to him, “No one will ever believe you,” before walking away into the night.

When asked whether or not this exchange took place, his expression turns to mock-disgust.

…And GQ‘s interview with Casanova and Invincible Iron Man writer (and possible man-crush subject) Matt Fraction is real good too.

    Ellis: “Everyone will recognise the first ten minutes as coming from the book. Then, after that, it wanders off on its own, coming back to the book on a few occasions in terms of literal adaptation. “
