Tilda Swinton reaches for another Narnia paycheck

NOW PLAYING
If the last Narnia film is any indication, The White Witch's appearance in THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER will be the sum total of her screentime in the movie. We see Tilda Swinton floating in the sky like the goddess she is, hand lifted and opened. Waiting for her paycheck perhaps?  Someone has to foot the bill for her film festival globe trotting, avant garde fashions, wondrous cinephile activism and her preference for brilliant but uncommercial cinema last year's Julia and this year's I Am Love (now on DVD - don't miss it). For this reason, and this reason alone, we salute the utterly bland Narnia films. Keep Tilda in the black.

Also Opening: Crackhead Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale) trains half brother Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) in THE FIGHTER. Wahlberg's Micky may be the champ within the movie but Bale's Dicky is the one going home with a certain naked gold man next February.

Miles Fisher Does Christian Bale in American Psycho Send-Up

Milesfisher

Actor Miles Fisher does an excellent job resembling Christian Bale from American Psycho in this video for his cover of the Talking Heads' "This Must Be The Place", but I still think Fisher can't help looking like Tom Cruise (who he played in the 2008 parody, Superhero Movie).
