Brothers no more....

America has got to start protecting their brother writer-director teams. Teams like 'The Coen Brothers,' 'The Hughes Brothers,' and, to an increasingly lesser extent, 'The Farrelly Brothers' are responsible for many of the greatest films of the last decade.

I say this because the most financially successful of writer-director brother teams, The Washowski Brothers, is no more. That's not to say that one of the brothers who are responsible for Bound and The Matrix Trilogy has died, or that the team plans to quit or break-up after production on their PG-Rated family film, Speed Racer, wraps. No, it just means that one of the brothers, Larry to be exact, decided a few years ago that he doesn't want to be a brother no more.

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you Lena Washowski:

Truth be told, while I am certain the bandanna she's wearing is meant to cover her receding hairline from when she was a man (stupid male hormones!), she's not all that bad looking.

Anyway, you might be wondering what all this has to do with The Movie Show, since we usually stay the heck away from celebrity gossip. Well, now it seems that the Washowski Brothers will no longer be credited as 'The Washowski Brothers,' and will henceforth be billed simply as 'The Washowskis.' Also, if you were paying attention to the part where I mentioned that Speed Racer will be a PG-rated family film, you might realize the tabloids could very well have a field day with this. We basically have a male-to-female post-op transgender making a tent pole (no pun intended) summer family movie. If this blows up in the press, there is a slight chance it could severely hurt the box-office for Speed Racer. I am sure Fox News is gearing to rev their engines as we speak.

Hollywood is still in the position wherein even a powerfully successful director like Bryan Singer was asked to delay his official coming out to the press until after X2 was released. Now that X2 and Superman Returns have been released, we are STILL waiting on that announcement that he is gay. My hope is that if Speed Racer is any good, that people will go and see it - the same thing I hope for all good movies, basically.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
