Cannot wait.

I really, really want to see this movie.  Please be good.

I highly recommend Gideon’s Army to anyone looking for a good documentary.

I’m far too excited right now.

Just posting the trailer for The East again.  This film is definitely one of my favorites of 2013.  It’s been a good year.

I just wanted to take a moment to share this.  Mr. Dennis Farina, one of my favorite actors, passed away this week.  Out of Sight is an incredible film absolutely filled with incredible performances - and my favorite performance from Mr. Farina.

Holy crap.  I cannot wait to see this movie.

I am a Superman junkie.  It’s my not-so-secret dream to direct a Superman movie of my own someday, so needless to say I’m pretty critical of the cinematic versions Clark Kent takes.  I’ve been pretty down on Man of Steel since it was announced, and even harder on it since the teasers and trailers started being released.  But this trailer is the first time I’ve seen some things that scream of the beauty and iconic grandeur possible with this character.

Please be a good movie.

The way they’re adding President Snow into these films to help the narrative to flow in a way it couldn’t outside the novels, is really brilliant.  These books have such a complex world that without something added to bring them to screen you’d have to resort to a constant voice over - so glad they didn’t make that choice.

Movies You Should See #4: Brand Upon the Brain directed by Guy Maddin

Guy Maddin is one of the most unique filmmakers I know of, and to be honest while I really like his style and creativity - I’m not sure I can say I enjoy his films.  But I still watch them and love them.  Maddin doesn’t make films like anyone I’ve ever seen.

I do believe that this film, which is silent by the way (and briefly toured the country with a live orchestra), was described as a fictional autobiography.  Told roughly in “memories”, Maddin revisits his childhood home - a lighthouse on an island - where his family ran an orphanage and falls into memory after memory.  Sometimes disturbing, sometimes incoherent  this film is entirely unique and different than anything you’ve ever seen.  Like it or hate it, you can’t see this film and not have an opinion on what you’ve just seen.
