The DeLorean Gets its Own Movie

Great Scott! A biopic about the inventor of the DeLorean? Well, there's three of them in the works, so we'll have to wait and see how this shakes out. Our guess? It comes down to two or maybe just the one, with a pooling of the different scripts and talent involved. But what a movie this guy's life will be: hotshot designer for GM, youngest-ever division head, hobnobbing with celebrities, inventor of the GTO and the Firebird, and later, owner/CEO of his own company which brought to life the DMC-12, otherwise known as the DeLorean. Oh yeah, there's a little cocaine smuggling thrown in there somewhere. This should be great once it finally gets made. We're picturing a darker, grittier version of Tucker, with a cameo by Johnny Carson, one of the highest profile DeLorean owners.

In other news, but no less dramatic, Pixar proves it's the coolest movie-making company by granting a dying kids last wish, to see their new movie, Up. They put together a DVD and trucked it over to the kid's house, since she was unable to even get to a theater. This speaks volumes about the good people at Pixar.

And then, on the other side, there's Microsoft, who apparently won't even let owners of their upcoming Windows 7 Starter Edition change the wallpaper on their netbook. You'll apparently be stuck with whatever they give you as the default. That alone should make peole want to upgrade to a costlier version. But hey, apparently Microsoft is sticking it to the people buying the cheap version. How novel.
