I'm attending a red carpet world premiere for the film 'Cotton Wool' in Oldham, UK on 10th December and it states on the brief that there will be opportunity to network and get involved with various crew and cast members who worked on the film. Now, this is my first time attending any ...

"The Hateful Eight"

Just watched "The Hateful Eight" for the first time. I found almost everything about the movie very well done - the story, cinematography, music, and especially the acting. Of course, it was a Tarantino film, so it was excessively bloody. But the writer and Director succeeded in building real tensio...

"Mother", a controversial horror movie that stretches conventional boundaries?

I read this quote this morning about the new horror picture call Mother, directed by controversial filmmaker Darren Anofsky:  "As Halloween approaches, a reliable season for horror, never has a film so sharply divided audiences and critics as Darren Aronofsky's MOTHER! But the most remarkable thing i ...

THe irony here is Aronofsky is an Atheist. Don't know if he is satiring religion. The dude is obviously a scholar and big A list actors want to work with him. Anyways wish he just direct a Comic book m...

Aronofsky directed "NOAH" so he's well versed in religious films and themes. It would be great to see his highbrow aesthetic applied elsewhere. Perhaps an in-depth origin story about the Joker?! Lol! ;)

anti-Scriptural prejudice of the cultural elite today

Poor persecuted Christians. I wonder where he draws the line between prejudice and critical analysis.

Movie soundtracks...where the hell are they?

I have been scouring the internet for weeks and can't find ANY conversations on why tv and film soundtracks were suddenly dropped by itunes. I see no conversations or questions from anybody and it's like it never happened and I'm going crazy. All I can find are a few places to buy second hand vinyls...

HBO's doc on Spielberg

HBO's doc now running on Speilberg is worth a watch. Actually, might take a couple of watchings to grasp it all. Some great nuggets in there regarding inspiration, filmmaking motivation and how ones consciousness impacts film. Great film! Not bad for a boy from the Arizona desert!

How a book can compliment the movie; a research about the effects of aligning the book and a movie

Often a movie based on a book is so different from what the reader perceived it’s almost no fun at all. This is about to change. Thanks to research by Zhu et al (2015), if the text of a book is aligned with the dialogues of a movie, the experience gained is phenomenal! Do you think this could really i ...

Do we want to copy Paris and see advertisements in theatres before the curtain goes up?

It seems a dozen French theatres will be showing advertising before the curtain goes up? Do we want this? Trailers and advertisements will be shown. Cash strapped theatres feel they are forced to do it. Yet this will surely cheapen the theatrical experience. I only see movies after the trailers and...

Donna-not in the UK yet.
Beth-is it really one or the other? Here in London the prices have soared but so is business with half the West End stages as usual devoted to musicals. Seat prices are very high. Even so I think it is a shame, perhaps an inevitable one.
