New and Noteworthy: Items From the Hiatus #4 (Terry Gilliam, E-Book Sales, Kevin Smith and the Critics, Hinman on SyFy)

In today's edition:

* An interview of Terry Gilliam at Movieline in which he freely discusses the challenges involved in bringing The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus to screens--particularly those coming from Hollywood executives.

* In what may or may not be a sign of the times, the Independent on James Patterson's attaining a new milestone--becoming the first novelist to sell a million e-books.

* For those who missed it, three pieces on what I will mildly refer to as Kevin Smith's vitriolic denunciation of the nation's film critics after their reaction to his latest film, Cop Out--one by Devin Faraci at chud.com, another by Scott Weinberg at Cinematical, and still another by Mike Ryan over at moviefone.

* And for those looking for an alternative to my take on SyFy Channel's first year under its new name, here are Michael Hinman's thoughts on the subject over at Airlock Alpha.
