I see that Lindsay Lohan is pulling a Gollum lately...

I'm tickled, to say the least, that The Hunt for Gollum, which was made for less than $11,000 CDN, beats the pants off ANY movie that Sarah Polley has made or been involved in.
This is "a moment" in film making just as Barack Obama being elected president was "a moment" in American race relations. Any black who whines that those with dark-toned skin are being kept down by The Man can now safely be told to STFU. And whenever Sarah Polley (or any other tit-suck CanCon "artist" [spit]) whines that she (they) can't make a movie without extensive government funding, she (they) can also be told to STFU and The Hunt for Gollum thrown in their faces.
Polley is NOT an artist. Artists create art. They find a way around obstacles. They go into debt. They take a third mortgage on their home. They find volunteers who share their vision. And they create.
Whores, on the other hand, won't hop into bed until they negotiate a price first.
The minute the high quality download becomes available I'm going to burn DVDs of this movie and mail one to every goddamn MP in Canada along with a letter describing the project. They need to know that government funding is irrelevant when it comes to creating art. The true artists will find a way.
It's time the whores were given the boot, and we've just been handed the most impressive lever ever to use in this effort. Those behind The Hunt for Gollum have earned my eternal gratitude.
Now if we could only get someone to film The Scouring of the Shire that Peter Jackson left out of LOTR because he "didn't like it"
Amazing & impressive. Bloody great fight scenes!
