GrabBag – South Park Does Monty Python; plus, Gravity Revisited and Wes Anderson


Today’s GrabBag is all videos. So sit back, relax, grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy!

  • First up, South Park’s tribute to Monty Python takes a dark turn.
  • Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segal sing an impromptu duet, “Confrontation” from Les Miserables, during an episode of Inside the Actors Studio.
  • This amazing alternate scene will change everything you thought you knew about Gravity.
  • 1001 Movies You Must See (Before You Die) is a fantastic montage of the greatest films in history, edited together with surprising virtuosity.
  • While we’re in the montage mood, here are some of the best examples of cinematography in the past decade.
  • And finally, this 10 minute mini-documentary gets to the specifics of what makes Wes Anderson so… well, Wes Anderson. The filmmaker has done such an amazing job of branding himself with a unique style, that every single thing he does is instantly recognizable as his own vision.

That’s it for this week. Join us again next Friday for another GrabBag!

GrabBag – MacBeth Fassbender’d, Leto Heckled, and Philip Seymour Hoffman Remembered.


It’s Friday once again, and that means it’s time for another GrabBag! – our weekly mishmash of links and videos to get you through the weekend.

  • There’s a new clip from Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. Reviews have just started coming out from its premier in Berlin, and needless to say, I’m even more excited.

… and screenwriter John Ridley talks to Bill Maher.

  • Gender inequality in the film industry summed up in this fantastic infographic. (New York Film Academy actually published this several months ago, but it’s still and always relevant.)

That’s all for this week’s GrabBag. Enjoy your weekend and try to stay warm!
