Robert Redford Kills It in New York Times Magazine Short

NYTMagCoverFor this weekend’s movie issue, Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski teamed with a veritable who’s who of Hollywood to create 11 micro-shorts.

And since Robert Redford is the king this fall movie season of the minimal-dialogue game thanks to All is Lost, we couldn’t help but start with his “Making a Scene” short. You see, each actor is given just a short line (or two) of dialogue to deliver against majestic, orchestral backdrops provided by 14th Street Music.

Pineapple Express – The Panel

comiccon01.gif The Pineapple Express panel was moderated by producer Judd Apatow. On the panel was director David Gordon Green, writer Evan Goldberg and cast members Amber Heard, Danny McBride, Seth Rogen and James Franco.

“Can we combine a weed movie with a Jerry Bruckheimer action movie?” Was the rhetorical question offered by Apatow.

The crowd was shown some clips of the movie and let in on the fact that a lot of the dialog was improv. Seth Rogen was totally on the whole panel. A fan asked about the script to the movie being leaked early on the internet.

“If you want to read it – you’re an idiot. Because you can watch it – its a movie.” Said Rogen.

The thing that struck us was that the panel was very much like all Apatow movies: Seth Rogen was funny, he talked about his balls a lot and the gorgeous blond female stock character was a one dimensional prop. There’s your synopsis.
