It's been thirty-one years since the The Terminator first wowed audiences, and my fear as I stare down the abyss into the dark future is that they'll just keep cranking these things out forever and always until the end of time. They. Will. Not. Stop.
Virtually no movies about the Middle Ages are "very realistic." Most are little more than fantasies minus the dragons, with costumes, weapons and settings completely made up by the film makers with some kind of vaguely "medieval" theme in their heads.
If you are heading to the movies this summer to meet a dinosaur or explore the feelings inside your head or maybe for a little magic, be sure to look ...
This question demands a lot of detail. I'm not sure I can provide all of it. I'll do my best to sketch it in here. I'll doubtless miss something. I'll probably also get stuff wrong. There are a lot of moving parts to a Pixar movie production. There are people whose jobs involve keeping track of those parts. I never worked one of those jobs.
The truth is, coming from a wee country like Scotland, I never really thought having a career in "Hollywood" was realistically attainable. I've always been ambitious, but that career path still seemed a bit fantastical.
I recently caught up with Ben Mezrich, at his launch party to celebrate his book: "Once Upon a Time in Russia: The Rise of the Oligarchs."
I'm writing because, like many others, I saw the love letter you penned to Apple in defense of "independent" artists, everywhere. And what a well written and well thought-out letter it was.
My suggestion to those that have the urge to see the movie is to rent Jurassic Park and see it twice, maybe three times. You'll get a lot more out of it than the current distortion of what was once and remains a great movie.
More than just laying down sonic wallpaper, Horner found a way to make even larger-than-life scenarios seem human, and relatable, and real. As a result, his music became instantly recognizable even to those folks who didn't normally pay attention to that stuff.
Dana Nachman's touching, funny nonfiction film, Batkid Begins, is sheer delight. Instead of something maudlin and manipulative, Nachman has assembled what may be the year's most joyous and surprising movie.
I recently sat down with the 36-year-old actor, artist, and achiever of huge dreams, to discuss what it takes to realize your dreams in a business with massive barriers to entry.
Sometimes artistry and insanity are so intertwined you can't distinguish them. That was the challenge for singer Nina Simone; dealing with worldwide fame and a madness she couldn't shake.
I recently chatted with Halfway producer Jonny Paterson about the movie, the important social issues it seeks to address, and his work on the film.
California's economy hasn't thrived because it's run by Democrats, but rather because of liberal culture. Not liberal values in the classic sense -- equality, peace, and justice -- but rather the liberal mindset that's open and flexible.
It is the rare movie comedy that can encompass the wild events of a single night and keep you both squirming and surprised into laughter for its full running time.
