I'll donate under one condition, remove that ugly C already!

You wanna play that way, huh? Well, if you don't donate, expect to see Criterion C's on every forum. Now cough up the cash.

"Hey, did you hear I got Polanski to be in my film. Rush Hour is his favorite film of all time. He called me personally to say so."

Thanks, Brett, but what money for xixax?

"You wanna talk money? X3 outgrossed Singer's X-Men films... combined!"

Uhhh... Nevermind.


We're almost there my fellow xixaxers. But we still need a final push to reach the end. Please give a little to help xixax stay the place with tools for filmmakers, not the place for tool filmmakers.

Please help the site out, so that in January we will be back and to the left... back and to the left... back and to the left...


Yeah, I know; that one was reaching.

I'm finally cool.

Jesus Christ says:



"It is accomplished."


We did it! We cannot express how happy we are with the outpouring of support. From the bottom of our hearts we Thank You all.


Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays everyone!

Around here, we're all feeling marry and gay. But marry and gay didn't like that, so they left.  :yabbse-lipsrsealed:

It's a Festivus miracle!

And I think you can only marry gay in Massachusetts.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

- To see GT relate every movie he hates back to Bressons career

They say New Years Resolutions are to stop things that are bad for you. I think that is a good start for me.

merry christmas everybody.  and a huge huge thank you to everyone for your support (and money).  there was a real chance of xixax shutting down right now, and i had figured we admins would have to do most of the donating to keep this place going, but i really underestimated everyone.  you guys have shown you care about this place as much as we do as being a part of your lives so thank you all from the bottom of our geek hearts.  here's to a great '07, the FOURTH year of xixax (if you can believe it.)
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

thank you to everybody else who donated, and special thanks to Mike.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

The donations had a good turn out, so is that hope for t-shirts?
