It’s already the second day of 2012, which means we’ll all be sober within the next day or two. It also means that we can officially start looking (through blurry eyes) ahead to the future. A future of promise and potential. A future of hope.
Real Scientific Evidence of Controlled Implosion "The preconceived notion of NIST is that there's no evidence for explosives, as in there is no point in looking.
A wise man once said, “French films are… too French.” American audiences often have preconceived notions about foreign films… that they’re boring, nonsensical, and hoity-toity(a technical term, you can google it), but French films in particular may come across as more pretentious than a lifetime subscription to McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern. So how do we at Film School Rejects combat this misguided attitude? First, we acknowledge that for the most part it’s true. It is.
Splitting Catching Fire would make no sense at all. The entire book is very compact in its themes and is only satisfying because the the ending that marks the climax of the themes of the running threads of the book, the rebellion and the blossoming Katniss/Peeta relationship, in a shocking/downer way. The Quarter Quell is not just "an all star game", it's where the fire really catches, when it comes to the character development and the effect on Panem (cough rebellion cough).
Just yesterday, a friend of mine posted a message to her unborn child on Facebook, saying that if the little bugger came a week before the due date and ruined her chance to see Star Trek Into Darkness , there would be consequences. That’s dedication. It’s also the kind of excitement we just can’t keep bottled when we look at the upcoming slate of potential greatness lying ahead.
Over the course of the year, curating the Short Film of the Day feature has given me a deep and affecting appreciation of the art form. Before, I hadn’t given much thought to the little bastards, but the truth is that they are incredibly versatile and representative of the boundaries that film can break. They can be jokes told well or human dramas driven home. They can be a perfect bite or demand to be expanded into a full meal. They can feel classic or break out into the long, strange realm of experimentation. They are so much more than movies with short runtimes.
Back in early 2011, horror fan-site juggernaut Bloody Disgusting took a stand for independent and foreign genre lore by partnering with The Collective and AMC Theaters, establishing distribution company Bloody Disgusting Selects . Their purpose? To hand-pick often glanced over horror gems which get lost in the mainstream remake shuffle, and grant those deemed worthy of proper theatrical and Video On Demand releases exposure. As an avid follower and member of “The Infected” (the site’s online community), Bloody Disgusting Selects seemed like a gleaming beacon of hope in the world of inventive, creative, and one-of-a-kind horror experiences. Selected by site staffers and genre enthusiast super fans sharing a common love for skin crawling madness, I made it my mission not to skip a single feature. Now, with their first ten tales of terror rated and reviewed, I thought I’d touch upon Bloody Disgusting’s foray into film distribution and determine the company’s future.
We recently took a look at the 10 most disturbing books of all time , and it seemed natural enough to do a movies counterpart. We here at PopCrunch completely regret this decision.
Tired of watching the same uncreative blockbuster movies over and over again? Looking for something new and original to fill your Sunday afternoon? There is always something pleasurable about uncovering a cinematic gem that few people have seen. The fact that a film is obscure doesn’t necessarily mean that it is unworthy, merely that it’s unknown. On the following article, you will find 10 Great Movies You May Have Never Heard Of but are worth checking out.
We’re hot and heavy into Oscar-bait season right now, but what does December and beyond promise? First off, we can expect some of the most gargantuan titles from Hollywood’s 2012 slate, led by Peter Jackson’s massively anticipated The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey . After being pushed back until after the presidential election, the killing-Osama-bin-Laden movie, Zero Dark Thirty , is finally coming to theaters.
Today, the indie world and the film world at large lost a giant in the field, watching Disney close the doors and turn the lights off on Miramax. As sad a day like today is, and as uncertain as the future is, we can still hold on to the memories. Most of them are now on Blu-ray. Or at least Laser Disc (because we all own one). Without further tears in our eyes, we’d like to remember Miramax for their 15 Best Films. If you’re like me and Rob Hunter, your rental queue is already full.
August 5th, 2010 There are plenty of jokes made at the expense of philosophy students. (My favorite goes: "The Italian word for philosophy major is ‘barista.’") But the truth is that studying philosophy is one of the most rewarding and eye-opening ways there is to get a better understanding of the human condition.
If you’re not going to come to Fantastic Fest, you’re only lucky because you’ll still have your eyeballs by the end of the month. We here at FSR on the other hand will definitely lose the damned things along with most of our spinal column and our sanity. While we can’t prepare for going blind, we can practice losing our minds, so we’re taking a look at the 20 film we’re most excited to see this year at Fantastic Fest. Blood, boobs, gore, nonsensical plots from the Far East, more blood, A.D.D. children’s toys, zombie attacks, strange and unexplained occurrences, and more blood. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
There are strange movies, and then there are stranger movies. Movies that simply cannot be described with words alone. There are movies you see, and then there are movies you experience .
