AOAHSP Blu-ray Release

posterIn a not entirely surprising move it looks like Assassination Of A High School President will be a getting a US release on Blu-ray disc as well as DVD, report Blu-ray.com and DVD Times.  Though with the way this movie has been treated in the year since it premiered at Sundance getting any sort of release is a surprise.

Extras will apparently include:

  • Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary
  • Filmmakers’ Commentary
  • Alternate Opening Scenes
  • Deleted and Alternate Scenes

Hopefully at least one of those deleted scenes will see more of Kathryn as Nurse Platt.  A full HD (1080p) version of the brief appearance we already know about will be worth seeing anyway.

The US release is set for the 6 October 2009 which is a week earlier than previously thought.  No news, yet, on a UK release date.

Thanks to byrdman @ Look Again for the heads-up.

Julie & Julia & Kathryn – update x4

Kathryn attended a special screening of the new movie Julie & Julia by Nora Ephron yesterday (27th July 2009).  Meryl Streep, Amy Adams and Stanley Tucci are amongst the stars of the film.

As usual Kathryn looks amazing: a vision in white jeans and a simple top.

A couple of large HQ images and some smaller ones have been added to the Gallery.

Update 4: 5 more HQ images added.

Paycheck – Full HD Screencaps

Paycheck_1080p_15610 minutes in and we’re Dunne.  Rita Dunne that is.  That’s all we get of Kathryn, starring as Rita, in the sci-fi movie Paycheck, which stars Ben Affleck, as Jennings, and Uma Thurman.

Well, when I say “that’s all we get”… we actually get quite a lot more than we might have bargained for in that brief time.  The rest of movie is very mediocre but that first 10 minutes is well worth watching.  Kathryn completely steals the show.

Rita initially appears to just be a corporate lawyer tasked with supplying Jennings with the facilities he requires to do the job he’s been contracted to do to earn his paycheck (see what they’ve done there?).  The task is to reverse engineering (and it’s a very backward view on such work) a rival’s product so this company can make their own, better version.  Once completed Jennings will have his memory of this time wiped to protect him and the company.  Rita, however, has a plan of her own to leave an indelible mark on him.

She fails, but in spectacular fashion, leaving us, the movie viewing public, with some unforgettable scenes.  Rita Dunne gives us a whole new perspective on Kathryn, and what a delightful view it is  😉

New Full HD (1080p) screencaps and a video clip have been added to the Gallery.

New KM UK Logo

As you can see we have a new logo here at Kathryn Morris UK.

I would like to thank zoé from ColdCasePedia for creating this great logo for me.

I have also created a new favicon.  It’s a little simple, hopefully we can come up with something better later, but I wanted to move away from the 3-cubes completely.

However, please don’t let this stop you from submitting any ideas you have for new logos or favicons.  Contact me via the Contact form or leave a comment against this posting.

Waitress, A Slice Of Cutie Pie Please

titleI really hope that the fictional books that Jessica Fletcher writes are better murder mysteries than this one.

There was nothing fundamentally wrong with this episode of Murder, She Wrote (S12E22 – What You Don’t Know Can Kill You).  It had all the right elements: good guy that ends up dead, doting girlfriend, bad guy, possibly jealous ex-girlfriend, token loony side-plot that my be connected, the sleuth getting the clues.  Despite all that it just didn’t work very well as a piece of drama.  The “reveal” just sort of happened, it wasn’t shocking despite the fact that I did not know who’d dunnit.  Even people very close to the victim that were right there as the truth came out didn’t react much.  You’d think they’d be a little angry.

Yes, yes, murder, solving etc.  But what, I hear you ask, about the reason we’re here?  Kathryn.

Do you really think I’m going to forget about her?  Not likely!

Kathryn (as Doreen The Waitress) effectively had 5 scenes in the episode, which was actually far more than I had expected,  All are in the first half of the show.  And she’s not just standing around in the background either.

msw_s12e22_014Scene 1.  Doreen is in the diner, she is a waitress after all, delivering food to a table occupied by our local ruffian gang made up of chief thug, his girl and two sidekicks.  Ruffians #2 and #3 harass Doreen.  Obviously such behaviour is unacceptable, even if I can’t entirely disagree with the sentiment.  Tasty indeed!  She puts them down with little effort.

msw_s12e22_039The second scene is a continuation of the first.  Still in the diner, Doreen chats with our soon-to-be-dead nice guy and his girlfriend as she takes their orders.  Doreen proves how good her memory is by listing exactly what the girl’s uncle had eaten there earlier that day.  We get the full Southern accent and dazzling smile treatment from Kathryn.  What could be better?

msw_s12e22_083Number 3 sees Doreen alone in the diner except for ruffians #2 and #3 (these two are together a lot, perhaps they share a brain cell), she’s clearing tables.  Doting girlfriend comes in to ask “the brain trust” about nice guy’s death.  They don’t take too kindly to the questions and get rough with her.  Doreen goes for the phone to call for help but is also threatened.  Ruffian #1 arrives with his moll and breaks it up.  Now Doreen gets all bold and tells #1 to get out and take his lackeys with him.  You go girl!

msw_s12e22_091The local lawyer and his early(ish) demise in the diner makes up scene 4.  Doreen needs to get some new filters for the machine from the back-room to make him a cup of coffee.  As we watch her moving boxes and reaching for the filters from a high shelf, Mr Lawyer, oddly quietly, finds himself on the wrong end of a knife.  Coming back into the diner Doreen, distracted by Ms. Fletcher arriving, fails to notice dead-guy-at-the-counter until our sleuth spots him.

msw_s12e22_133For our final scene with Doreen we finally get to see her out of the diner, and in the police station.  She’s gone over there with Jessica to explain what happened prior to them finding the lawyer with a knife in his back.

I can’t say I was impressed by this episode.  It was not a great piece of television.  Perhaps after 12 seasons the show was showing signs of age.  However, it was really good to finally see Kathryn in this early TV appearance.  It was a more significant role, with more air time, than I could have hoped for and she was, as usual, a pleasure to watch.

We got the smile, the accent and another addition to the KM hair-do collection.  What’s not to like.  In summary: adorable.

There are, of course, screencaps and a couple of small video clips to be found in the Gallery.
