This week is the 50th anniversary of the release of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, and you can celebrate by synchronizing the last 23 minutes of the film (Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite) with your copy of Pink Floyd’s Meddle.

Operaton: Prevent THE STAND

Operaton: Prevent THE STAND

Yeah, twenty years on, the world is not really all that amazing.  We have regressed years in technology, and people are so focused on this battle of good vs. evil thing that happened just recently it’s like living under a theocracy.  I might call it the ‘Taliban of the good’ although see in our timeline, the Taliban never existed, because Captain Trips took out most of the world in 1985.

Film Festivals vs. Award Factories vs. Film Festivals That Give Out 10,000 Awards

Film Festivals vs. Award Factories vs. Film Festivals That Give Out 10,000 Awards

I always tell filmmakers when they ask where they should submit their films to really think about what they want out of the festival.  Do they want to attend a packed screening or are they just looking for another laurel to shove on their poster?

Jar Jar Binks is the Most Necessary Character in the Star Wars Universe

It’s time to reassess the much-reviled Jar Jar, who, when it comes down to it, may just be the most important character to the plot of the entire film series (yes, all nine of them).  Watch out, dissen gonna be bery messy!

Kelsey Signed up for a Suicide Space Mission

Kelsey Signed up for a Suicide Space Mission

Knowing Kelsey’s weakness for a good underdog story, she more than likely enlisted her vessel and its crew into the battle as one of seven samurai gunslingers- I mean starships- to take on John Saxon with a Gorbachev splotch over his eye.

THE COMMENTARY’S THE THING: the OWA Terror of Frankenstein Screening

I remember when DVD’s were a new thing, and the Director’s Commentary was what sold me. I converted all my old VHS tapes to the new format to hear words of wisdom from the creators of the film. It was a film class for those of us who weren’t going to spend ridiculous sums on grad school
