At the IMDB frontpage (random quote from Changeling):

I used to tell Walter, "Never start a fight... but always finish it." I didn't start this fight... but by God, I'm going to finish it.

I have yet to see the movie, but I couldn't help spot the Bab5 "easter egg"

Malkovich's turn as SNL host sure to make good TV

This is a stretch, however Changeling is mentioned in the article and there might be a parody of Changeling on SNL.

Malkovich's turn as SNL host sure to make good TV
Posted: December 04, 2008, 3:15 PM by NP Editor
Quote:
NBC announced yesterday that John Malkovich will be hosting SNL this week. ...

Later this year he appeared with Angelina Jolie in the powerful Changeling, playing Reverend Gustav Briegleb, the radio preacher and only person who believed Christine Collins' (Jolie's character) claims that the child returned to her by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1928 was not her missing son. Malkovich's Briegleb is strong, the one voice of reason in a film full of corruption and madness.

Malkovich's range and offbeat humour are certain to make his third appearance on SNL memorable. ...
--Michelle Olsen

Changeling was briefly mentioned at the beginning of the Italian interview segment La Revista Di La Television Con Vinny Vedecci when John Malkovich was introduced.

An excellent film. If it wasn't a true story I would have thought it too unrealistic, but they actually did it: the LAPD actually had the hubris to claim this woman couldn't recognize her own son. Amazing.

Just watched this film on our SKY HD movie channel.

W.O.W!!!!

Intense, moving, tragic, unbelievable, touching, uplifting...the list just goes on and on.

Not really a huge Jolie fan but by goodness, she was good in this. A really good film that deserved much better than it actually ended up getting.

And in HiDef it looked totally glorious. Mr. Eastwood certainly has a good eye.

Overall a very polished product - a film that is both harrowing and encouraging at the same time.

I too caught the 'end the fight' nod at B5 and one other that (at this moment) escapes me.

Well done Joe and lets hope that Forbidden Planet is just as good. But then...well written epic SF dramas are you specialty, right?

Oh, Lightstorm,

I had that bit of wow feeling when I saw it about a year ago.

Many of the themes from B5 pop up in "Changeling", I noticed that when I saw it in the cinema. I guess JMS has some favourite themes to bring out in his writing. Had to have it on DVD, so bought that one, too.

I recommend this film to people who do not want a loooong story (or do not like scifi for that matter) but still want to get acquainted with JMS' writing.

Not to forget : I look forward to the Lensmen series coming on film. Just reading the last book right now, so I know the main story line.

I know Lensmen is a bit dated as a book, but I have high hopes JMS will do it justice and bring it into our age.

JMS is interviewed, but there is no JMS commentary.

Extras

* Partners in Crime: Clint Eastwood and Angelina Jolie (13 min.; HD): This breezy, straightforward look at the making of Changeling quickly and efficiently covers quite a bit of ground: how its great many pieces fell into place with remarkable ease, Eastwood's approach to direction being such an accomplished actor himself, the cast learning stuntwork and how to take a punch from The Man with No Name, and the challenges of rolling the clock back eight full decades in Los Angeles.

* Common Thread: Angelina Jolie Becomes Christine Collins (5 min.; HD): Despite being bookended by cursory comments from Eastwood and Jolie about her performance, "The Common Thread" is primarily a costuming featurette. Because it's squarely focused on a single character, this look at Jolie's wardrobe is more comprehensive than usual.

* U-Control: There are three picture-in-picture options available throughout Changeling although only one can be automated at a time. Selecting the others requires repeated button clicks throughout the movie, and considering that there's essentially no overlap between them, it really just seems like interactivity is being unnecessarily forced onto users.

"Archives" overlays photographs of the people and places featured throughout Changeling as well as newspaper articles, transcripts, and letters, and it's more heavily weighted towards the second half of the film. "Los Angeles: Then and Now" illustrates how profoundly Los Angeles has transformed over the past eighty years, offering brief looks at the settings of the movie ù from Collins' suburban home to the mental ward where she was commited ù in the here and now. This U-Control feature is most heavily weighted around a half hour of behind the scenes footage and interviews, and only a couple of sentences are recycled from the two featurettes elsewhere on this Blu-ray disc. Casting, the many challenges of shooting a period piece in modern day L.A., the state of mental institutions in the 1920s, the use of authentic dialogue in the courtroom scenes, and skulking throughout the U.S. and Canada to find precisely the right wardrobe are among the topics covered here.

Although I do like the material offered throughout this U-Control feature, there's not quite enough for my tastes, and it strikes me as a poor design choice to have to constantly keep a remote in-hand when all of these options really should've been able to be played at once.

* BD Live: Changeling does offer some sort of online functionality, but it's still inactive as I write this, and there's no indication what may or may not be offered down the line.
