Sunday Film News Roundup – November 12, 2012

While millions of people saw Bond this weekend, I had an odd little experience of being in an almost empty theater on a Saturday while finally seeing Cloud Atlas. I usually like to see movies during the day to avoid big crowds, but I had figured, being a Saturday, it would be packed and...

OW Oscarama 2012 — This One is for the Little Guy: Best Actor

OW Oscarama 2012 — This One is for the Little Guy: Best Actor

Now I know why all of those preambles during awards shows are so boring. There is so little to say that hasn’t been said 15 earlier during the award season (or blogging) that it’s simple to just fall back on cliche and give it some sort of “timeless” riff, like Howard Beale in reverse....

Sunday Film News Roundup — February 19th, 2012

My biggest gripe of the week is that Disney hasn’t released Studio Ghibli’s latest film, The Secret World of Arrietty, with its original Japanese language track at all this time around. I know the widest roll out is always for the the English dub, which they put a lot money into, and I’m fine...

The Double Feature: Spies are People Too

This week’s films are the Coen Brothers’ Burn After Reading and  Ronald Neame’s Hopscotch. I’ve been thinking about this feature for a while (I went a little overboard and planned out the next six months in advance, actually), so I’m really excited to get the ball rolling on it. The basic premise is two...

Golden Globe Picks!

Golden Globe Picks!

Let’s see how horribly wrong I can get this, shall we? Now, the most obvious part about this whole thing is that the only reason to watch the Golden Globes this year is to see celebrities squirm in their seats, hoping that Ricky Gervais’ caustic-comedic spotlight doesn’t touch on them. Otherwise, it’s the most...

Terrence Malick’s “Tree of Life” Poster

March 28, 2011
By
treeoflifeposter

There isn’t much to add really. No one has any idea what the film is actually about except that it takes place in the 50s, has a baby and, supposedly, dinosaurs. And was also supposedly partially shot in 70mm. Click the poster for a larger version.

Oz, Madge, Nazis and Moneyball: It’s all bad news in scriptland

If you know me (and if you do, I’m terribly, terribly sorry) or have been following my blogs for the few years I’ve been doing them at OW (again, terribly, terribly sorry), then you know I’m a big fan of screenwriters and scripts and anything scripty. Yes, it’s a passion of mine – I...
