well done. my favorite part is your description of a Burton sneeze.

question fer ya. after having written a book on this movie and having interviewed these guys countless times, do you find yourself using similar phrases in articles like this, in a sense paraphrasing your own book?

ps: i heard the new Alien v. Predator was pretty awesome.

I try to find as fresh a way as possible to talk about the film/the people for every article but, inevitably, familiar phrases do have a habit of creeping in, especially when you write several pieces on the same film... But I'm always on my guard against repetition.

As for AVP-R, apparently they're not showing it over here to the press, apart from when they screen it for the national film critics (meaning those from all the big newspapers) in the week of release. Looks like I'm going to have to pay my money if I want to see that one...

Mark, just awesome. Thanks for posting this. If you don't mind, I'm going to put a link to it up on my end tomorrow (directing readers' attention back here, of course) when I next update, as it's now quarter to two in the morning and I have to be up at seven...

Rats.

Great interview :D I think my favourite bit was the sneeze too, with Barry Manilow coming in a close second...


And GUESS WHAT. Christina managed to get hold of premiere tickets for us! I won't be able to eat for a month, but I'm going to be there :D

I will see you there, Fran...

Mark Salisbury said...

And Gerard, I don't mind at all...

Wicked :D I'll probably be passed out outside the cinema from sheer excitement, do drop by and say hello ;)
