Rock Club Cinema -- Must Miss

I don't like to link to Pitchfork, not because I have anything against them, but just because most people probably read that site anyway, so my linking to them doesn't really add anything to anybody's lives.

I did see this, however--Elijah Wood will portray Iggy Pop in The Passenger, a movie about the early years of Iggy and The Stooges.

I know I'm in the minority here but I thought Lord of The Rings Parts 1 Through 483 was gay as shit and if any of you D&D freaks want to fight me for that, bring it on, but let me warn you that your spells and 23-sided dies won't stand a chance against my savage sack punches.

I nearly rented Green Street Hooligans just to see Elijah Wood's character get a kicking from some Milwall fans. Then I thought better of it.

A better choice for the role of Iggy Pop would have been Anthony Kiedis. Not only does he resemble Iggy Pop, but he also won an Oscar for his unforgettable role as "Friend of Warchild" in the seminal 1991 film Point Break.

That Would Be A Waste of Time, Elijah

Or better yet, just skip The Passenger altogether, and rent Passenger 57, with Wesley Snipes.

Elijah as Iggy? It reminds me of when Tina Yothers was cast as porn star Linda Lovelace.
