Last week, South Park aired their Inception parody episode, entitled “Insheeption”. You can watch the full episode for free, in HD, at South Park Studios. If you were planning to check it out but haven’t yet, I’d recommend doing so now, as waiting until after the article could seriously diminish your chances of enjoying it.
Although, you may not even need this article to recognize the resemblance between a scene in the recent South Park episode and a comedy sketch from College Humor called “Inception Characters Don’t Understand Inception”, which has garnered over half a million views and was even posted on this very site. The writers at College Humor certainly noticed the resemblance, and were quick to assert that South Park ripped them off.

Cinema has entered a new dawn. It arrived a while ago, actually, and you may not have even noticed.

Filmmakers on Stage: Trey Parker and Matt Stone go Off-Broadway; In Bruges Director Martin McDonagh Teams Up With Tom Waits and Robert Wilson

Two stories today about filmmakers hitting the stage. (Well, one of them is about a filmmaker returning to the stage, but close enough.) First, Trey Parker and Matt Stone are working with Robert Lopez on what is likely to be the musical about Mormons that the three guys have been working on for ages. Lopez was one of the composers and lyricists behind Avenue Q, the adult-themed ‘update’ of Sesame Street. That featured numbers about porn, racism and homosexuality, so it should be fun to see what the three come up with on the topic of Mormonism. Oh, people will probably be angry. An August-September run is planned for the New York Theater Workshop. [Variety]
After the break, the man behind In Bruges teams up with the avant-musical duo of Tom Waits and Robert Wilson. Read More »
