Being a movie buff, you learn a lot about what people do in the industry and a lot of times, these people are the unsung heroes of some of the best work to ever be displayed on the silver screen. Film editor Sally Menke is one of those peoples.
But seriously, I am excited. I mean I have watched the original Star Wars all my life (all versions), and yet I had never seen them in theaters. I had seen the prequels in theaters, but it would be nice if I could see 4, 5, and…
Well, I know it seems like I'm doing a lot of blogs for a guy who doesn't seem to be that fond of Superman all that much but I'm sorry, it's weird for me too. Maybe it's the fact that I am a HUGE Christopher Nolan fan (even though I haven't seen Memento, I know, I know) and I can't get the vision of a darker Superman out of my head even though David S. Goyer said that the films would be "modern...believable...fun". I even balked at…
Once again I find myself in the greatest genre film festival in the world FANTASTIC FEST. This means I only going to get a few hours of sleep and watch a ludicrous amount of movies. Well let me tell you about my first day at Fantastic Fest…
Today this article is for part of a game that has seen a large growth in interaction: Multiplayer. When games were being made a lot of them didn’t have multiplayer mainly due to the limitations of the technology. Only a few did have multiplayer functions but that was very limited to one screen or console. Pong was the very first commercialised game that would sell multiplayer functions in games but even than it was limited to the same screen where the action was just hitting a pixel from one… Continue
You know what I hate about movies and TV? When people are ready to take a shit on it before it's even on the air.
That's clearly what happened before the new CBS comedy, $#*! My Dad Says, premiered tonight following The Big Bang Theory season premiere.
The series is based on a famous Twitter feed by Justin Halpern and stars William Shatner as Ed, a 72-year old who has been divorced three times. His two adult sons, Henry and Vince, are accustomed… Continue
Today video games have now become part of the broad media market after so long under the shadow of their previous image of an industry aimed at children. Game corporations have made many great lengths to make them more mature to represent a broader audience. Thus the image of the video games industry has been literally screaming society that videogames are not just for children anymore (although they are still the crucial target audience). Indeed the Edinburgh Interactive Entertainment Festival… Continue
Woody Allen is a controversial figure. No, I'm not talking about his lewd personal behavior (though that's another article onto itself...); I'm talking about his film career. Many have called him a genius comedic artist while others have called him an overrated schmuck who stole the 1977 Best Picture from…
Tis the season, the heck with Christmas. For all of us couch surfers, the new fall season isn't just a slice of heaven, but it’s Shangri–La and Citizen Kane's Xanadu all rolled into one. How do you make heads or tails of everything? Well you stay tuned to CPA all week long for what to set your DVRs and TiVos for. … Continue
If you call me out for being overly sentimental to the point of zealotry, I wouldn't care. This franchise is near and dear to me. Once in a while, there comes along a story that ingrains itself in a generation. For mine, it's Halo. Released back in November 15, 2001, Halo took the gaming world by storm. It was a sprawling Sci-Fi epic that gave players the mysteries of a dead alien race, a bloody war, and some of the… Continue
This is a movie I really need to think about. But not in the way that I was expecting. I was one of those people who talked about the Joaquin Phoenix interview on Letterman a year back, wondering if he was for real, or if we were all on a big prank? Well stop reading if you want to remain in mystery.
I'm not saying that in that arrogant internet troll way. Casey Affleck, the director, revealed it just recently. Which brings me to…
When I first saw the theatrical trailer forThe Town, I was very interested, to say the least. I was excited because I love heist films, and I love crime films, so I immediately set high expectations for the movie. Now for those people who follow my reviews, (all three of you), you probably think that…Continue
Looking at what's been going on at Toronto and Venice, and what's to come at the NY Film Festival, along with everything else, here's just a short-list of 10 movies that I look forward to being released for the remainder of this calendar year (as far as I know as of this date and time zone):
Its that time of the month where I give my Top Ten on ANYTHING!
In this day and age, we all wanted a different and intelligent film from the sea of dumb-down mindless films Hollywood brings out. But sometimes the sense of intelligence can bite you in the ass by having directors making…
There comes a film that taps into a primal fear and puts you through an intense experience unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. "Buried" is that rare film. What Director Rodrigo Cortés manages to put together, with the writing talent of Chris Sparling and the amazing acting talent of Ryan Reynolds, is a brilliant exercise in claustrophobic tension that grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go till it’s pulse pounding finale.… Continue
