This Friday is going to be one of the biggest social justice weekends for movies. Why? Because, as the Universe would have it, Hollywood is ironically playing host to the best and worst of Hollywood’s tendencies when it comes to minorities in films.
So…apparently, there’s going to be a biopic about the love story of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama? I’m intrigued and concerned. If there’s any movie that needs to be done right, it’s this one.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is about one week away and if you’ve been on tenterhooks awaiting the arrival of the movie, these new stills will possibly make it that much harder for you.
Amazing news, everyone! The cast for Suicide Squad has been set and there are some really interesting actors assigned to play The Joker, Deadshot, Harley Quinn and more. Here’s the official press release:
I didn’t grow up as a Star Wars fan, and the prequels certainly didn’t endear me to the franchise as a whole. But thanks to my brother, I do see the charm in the original Star Wars movies. But I still couldn’t call myself a fan.
HOWEVER, this was all in the time before the Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. What. A. Trailer!
Whenever I wonder, “What am I writing all this stuff for?” (since we all have moments of doubt), it’s news articles like the one from The Wrap that reminds me that I am doing my civic duty on my little corner of the internet by exposing the inherent racial (or blatant racial) bias in America.
When it comes to films, there are only a few that I hold on their own pedestal. Jurassic Park is one of those films. Having watched the film tons of times and read the book, I can tell you that I’m a huge fan of this story outlining the hubris of mankind and how it can ultimately fail those who fall sway to its siren song.
Pan isn’t what you’d expect from the average Peter Pan movie adaptation. This film is a bold new interpretation of the classic J.M. Barrie tale.
In the post about Moana, I write that hearing the film will be computer animated is a bit of a bummer since I can already see the 2D animated film in my head. I just like 2D animation better. The only way I can watch 3D animation is if its used in a non-boring fashion or has a unique look to it, like The Book of Life (wooden puppets), Toy Story (using the technology to enhance toys’ already fragile and fabric-plastic existence), or the upcoming film, Peanuts.
