Domains and Movies

Please help me price this deal. Got a call from a company that specializies in rights clearances for television and feature films. They would like to use my domain as a backdrop in their story. While they have been short on what part the domain plays exact in their story, they did say "would like to use the website on a computer screen as set dressing in our upcoming motion picture" and "Production will create their own web design for the page with a still of one of our lead characters. We feel that this use would lend an authentic touch to our production. " Any recommendations on how I should approach this? and the way to make this most profitable for me?

How can I keep a comprehensive film log?

I want to start a log of films I see, to include director, lead actors, genre, date viewed, etc, and my own review of the flick. This is for my own use only. Can anyone offer a recommendation for software to use/how to set it up in something standard like Excel so that I can search on any category but still have somewhat extensive space for my eloquent prose? Might also extend its use to books and music. I'm a mac user. Thanks!

What song is playing the Pineapple Express trailer?

Does anyone know what song is being played in the second half of the trailer for Pineapple Express? The trippy tune with the girl talk-singing, that starts at about 1:20 in this version: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=AZ07JO-SaBc The song is driving me nuts, I'd love to know who it is.

Sequels That Didn't Start Out As Sequels

Are We Done Yet? was the sequel to an original film, but was weirdly also a remake of the classic Cary Grant comedy Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. Along the same lines, Ocean's Twelve was based on an unrelated script first intended as a John Woo project. Can we think of any other examples of a sequel to an original movie starting life as an unconnected film? [more inside]

When did actors start getting real?

When watching older movies (say, through the 60s), the acting seems more exaggerated--for lack of a better term--than in modern films. Is there terminology for these differences in acting styles, and when/why did it change?

What from the '80s was actually good?

I'm a child of the '80s, and I loved the '80s. However, I didn't develop a sense of good taste until about 1994, and as a result my pop-culture radar is completely jammed with crappy cartoons designed to sell toys, cereal commercials, and Ewoks. Can you recommend totally awesome movies/TV shows/etc. that will satisfy my '80s nostalgia, but are good enough to watch today? [more inside]

Replacement for Lost Netflix Page

Netflix used to have a page that listed all of the new videos that were coming out that week in all categories. Sadly, that page seems to be no more. What is a good online replacement, a site that lists what new items are coming out on DVD that week, particularly in the foreign film and documentary categories?

Looking for examples of surfers, people talking about surfers, or people depicting surfers in media.

Looking for depictions of surfers in mainstream media. Examples by people who aren't actually surfers (actors, reporters, wannabe surfers) are great, but people in the surf community are good too. The more common, well-known examples are better. I'm thinking of scenes from movies, passages in books, news stories, documentaries, blogs, comedy skits, but unscripted examples are best.

I really enjoyed this NYT article on sound design in No Country For Old Men. Does anyone have any links/references to any similar articles about sound design in other films, past or present? Ideally they'd be a little longer and more detailed than the NYT piece, but I'd rather not read a book on this (unless it's brilliant!)
