Martin Scorsese's Film School: The 85 Films You Need To See To Know Anything About Film Interviewing Martin Scorsese is like taking a master class in film. Fast Company’s four-hour interview with the director for the December-January cover story was ostensibly about his career, and how he had been able to stay so creative through years of battling studios. But the Hugo director punctuated everything he said with references to movies: 85 of them, in fact, all listed below. Some of the movies he discussed (note: the descriptions for these are below in quotes, denoting his own words). Ace in the Hole: “This Billy Wilder film was so tough and brutal in its cynicism that it died a sudden death at the box office, and they re-released it under the title Big Carnival, which didn’t help. All That Heaven Allows: In this Douglas Sirk melodrama, Rock Hudson plays a gardener who falls in love with a society widow played by Jane Wyman. An American in Paris: This Vincente Minnelli film, with Gene Kelly, picked up the idea of stopping within a film for a dance from The Red Shoes. 1951 Mr.

Carnivorous Plants of Paper Mache | My Ghoul Friday Author's note: this how-to was written years ago, before I started mastering toilet paper mache. In fact, I wrote this while making my first plant ever. Which explains why it's so pitiful (the pictures, the instructions and my technique). But I've decided to keep the original images and most of the original content for you to see what it might look like the very first time you try to make one yourself. Materials Needed: styrofoam ballswirea heavy stick or branchfake fangsacrylic paintgluetoilet paperhot glue gun (optional)plaster (optional) Step 1: Choose Your Base I had an old terracotta pot and a small branch. Back then (being the scrounging, recycling, reusing mad woman I was), I packed the branch in with styrofoam I had from packaging. If you're making a large plant (like this one), I would suggest you do a mixture of packing material (to fill in most of the space) and plaster. Step 2: Attach the Foam Balls I had styrofoam balls of 3 different sizes. Step 3: Add the Foliage Step 5: Fangs

The Best Movies From 1982 You Probably Haven’t Seen Just last week /Film was part of the announcement that the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin is recreating the Summer of 1982. There are many who believe that, for whatever cosmic reason, ’82 was a perfect year in cinema. Between The Thing, Blade Runner, Star Trek II and E.T. (whose event /Film is co-hosting) it is hard to disagree. But there are more than just the popular favorites. Fitzcarraldo; Werner Herzog, director. Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski rafted down the Amazon with Aguirre: The Wrath of God and it went well. The subject of a famous documentary (Burden of Dreams) the behind-the-camera woes of Fitzcarraldo are much of what propelled the myth Herzog-as-maverick/madman. Warning: a viewing of Fitzcarraldo may just turn you into a Werner Herzog junkie. Tempest; Paul Mazursky, director. While not quite as cool as Peter Greenaway’s Prospero’s Books, this loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s last (and trippiest) play has got a lot going for it. My Favorite Year; Richard Benjamin, director.

How to Make a Werewolf Mask - All Here is a list of the main supplies you will need: - Foam board 16x20 -(Although this can be substituted for any sturdy medium, such as cardboard, I highly recommend using foam board. It's lightweight, durable, easy to cut and work with and you should be able to find a good size piece for under $10) - Fur - For the mask, you will not need as much as I have pictured. Go to your local craft store and see if you can find them in the 9x12 sheets. - Ruler - Used for measuring and making cuts in the foam board. - Masking tape - Highly essential. - Cutting Tool - I use an X-acto knife, but anything with a sharp blade will do, such as a box cutter. - Needle/Thread - This is for sewing the beanie to the foam board for one of the later steps. - Hot Glue Sticks/Gun - I cannot stress how important this is. - Beanie Hat - This will be sewed to the foam board to give it a secure fit to your head. - Elastic Bands - Another dollar store special. - Model Magic/Clay - You will need very little of this.

25 Spectacular Movies You (Probably) Haven’t Seen Pt. 2 Human Traffic Very unique comedy about the drug/club culture in the UK. Five friends ponder society, drug use and their own lives as they go about their usual weekend of snorting, smoking, popping, dancing and sex. The Matador Pierce Brosnan plays an assassin going through a mid-life crisis as he approached retirement. The Good, The Bad, And the Weird Two comical outlaws and a bounty hunter fight for a treasure map in 1940s Manchuria while being pursued by the Japanese army and Chinese bandits. Tucker and Dale vs. A group of college students go camping for the weekend and, through a series of unlucky events, begin thinking that the harmless Tucker & Dale (pictured above) are trying to kill them. New Kids Turbo An absolutely nutty movie from the Netherlands. Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang KKBB is a murder-comedy (?) Big Trouble Big Trouble is one of those movies where all of these different people end up intertwined at the end of the movie. Once Upon A Time In The West Persepolis 13 Assassins Dr. Drive

Revvo Casters and Wheels - Technical Reference Technical Reference for Revvo Caster and Wheel Performance Rolling ResistanceRolling resistance determines the effort necessary to move the equipment from rest and to keep it rolling. If a wheel, so hard that it will not flatten under load, rolls on an absolutely flat hard surface, perfect rolling is possible. The nearer you get to this ideal, the lower the rolling resistance becomes. In view of this, the first choice should be hard tread wheels, but the average floor is far from smooth and clean and is often littered with small particles of some description. Once the wheels are rolling they will pass over these small items with no problem, but if the equipment starts from rest with minor obstructions, such as swarf, in front of the wheels then the starting effort includes that which is necessary to lift the equipment to the height of the obstructions. Load CapacitiesWe do not give load capacities for "ideal working conditions" as these rarely exist.

Brave New Worldview – 30 Science Fiction Films of the 21st Century - Row Three A decade into the 21st Century and we have arrived at the future. The promise of Tomorrow. But instead we have looming energy crises, endless middle east conflict and more disappointing, we have no flying cars, Heck, for all the bright and clean future promised in 2001: A Space Odyssey, none of the real companies used as brands in the film even exist anymore. Even moving from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s, nobody makes DeLoreans (although they occasionally sell on Ebay), but cloning and tablet computing (as promised by Star Trek: The Next Generation) have more or less come to pass in this century. It is not the gizmos or the distopian aesthetics, that have brought Science Fiction into the new millennium, but the questions it asks of people or society in a future time or place and how they reflect on our own times. There have been a surprising number of excellent science fiction films to come about in the past decade that do this and do this well. The Fountain 28 Weeks Later The Host

The 50 Scariest Movies of All Time The 50 Scariest Movies of All Time What is it about a perfectly done horror movie? You can't say there's a single way to do it: some use the time time-tested hot-chick-in-distress formula, some hinge on graphic displays of gore and disembowelment that make you recoil (even though keep watching, you sick bastard), and some simply shake you to your core...and in some cases drive you to therapy. But however a good scare flick works, it works, and in the process creates what are arguably your most vivid movie traumas memories.
