Something to ponder

There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and supersition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Our story this evening concerns two directors, one from each side of the Atlantic Ocean. Until recently, they hadn't met, and they share no DNA. However, something very peculiar is going on. Judge for yourself.

Edgar Wright:
  • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
  • Hot Fuzz (2007)
  • Shaun of the Dead (2004)
Jason Reitman:
  • Pierre Pierre (2009)
  • Juno (2007)
  • Thank You for Smoking (2006)
To paraphrase Shakespeare, "Two gentlemen, both alike in dignity, in fair Hollywood where we lay our scene..." Back to your regularly scheduled program come Friday, with Mike Judge's Extract.
