It’s been a thunderous week for Marvel fans, as early screenings of The Avengers have gone down fantastically well with critics and fans alike! While official reviews are embargoed for the next couple of days, much praise has been given to the way the film has brought new life into the Incredible Hulk, which is why some fans are disheartened by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige for announcing there are no plans for a Hulk sequel…

How Do 3D Glasses Work?

3D glasses make the movie or television show you’re watching look like a 3D scene that’s happening right in front of you.

Using News Video Clips In Your Video Productions Increases Credibility

News clips prior to the 20th century were referred to as “reels” but can still be reliable, trustworthy additions to most modern day news video clips. Recorded events, especially those that have historical significance, are instantly recognized by the viewer and can add tons of credibility, style and structure to an otherwise drab narrative. News footage clips can be easily “dropped” or added into larger videos to produce custom-finished pieces.

Movie Review: Titanic 3D (2012) (PG-13)

The recent trend of converting old films to 3D and rereleasing them theatrically has kept me in an almost constant state of recollection. The experience of seeing James Cameron’s Titanic 3D has put me back into that state, and for the time being, it ranks as the most vivid, the most powerful, and the most personal of any 3D rerelease I’ve seen. It called to mind my days as a teenage Titanic historian (very much of the amateur division) and, to an even stronger degree, my talent for drawing, which I sadly gave up on. Most of all, it called to mind memories of seeing the film for the first time in December of 1997 and watching it win the Oscar for Best Picture and become the most financially successful movie ever made – only to be surpassed twelve years later by Avatar, again directed by James Cameron.

The Discreet Charm of Luis Bunuel

The purpose of this analytical essay is to convey an overall sense of director Luis Bunuel’s authorial expressivity in his bizarre masterpiece “The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie” (1972). Underneath all of its cryptic, absurdist and seemingly impenetrable content lies an auteur’s deep-rooted methodology that’s textured with narrative experimentation, incendiary subtext, sardonic wit and a Surrealist framework; it’s all unmistakably a product of Luis Bunuel. I intend to shed light on many of his prominent subtexts while, at the very least, drawing curiosities from his more subtle touches.

The Pitch on AMC

Sneak preview of new reality show, “The Pitch” was shown on April 8. It shows two advertising agencies preparing presentations for a new client. It follows “Mad Men,” but is very slow-moving in comparison. It’s advertising as a reality show.

Movie Review:: Touchback (2012) (PG-13)

Touchback is not a compelling movie, although it is rife with compelling ideas, which only makes processing my feelings for it that much more difficult. It has some good things to say about the choices we make in life and learning to appreciate what we have; what’s missing is a plot capable of supporting these messages fully. If you’re going to infuse an inspirational sports drama with the fantastical concept of time travel, there’s absolutely no call for half-heartedness. You have to be completely audacious and commit to it fully. Otherwise, we in the audience have no real reason to willingly suspend disbelief. To an extent, writer/director Don Handfield made an honest effort. The issue is, that extent should have been the entire film, not just specific scenes.

Movie Review:: The Cabin in the Woods (2012) (R)

“I love being scared.” So said Joss Whedon in an interview with Total Film regarding The Cabin in the Woods, which he produced and co-wrote with director Drew Goddard. “The things that I don’t like are kids acting like idiots, the devolution of the horror movie into torture porn and into a long series of sadistic comeuppances. Drew and I both felt that the pendulum had sung a little too far in that direction.” When I first read that quote a few weeks ago, I wished Whedon had been there with me, for I wanted to shake him by the hand and thank him for publically reaffirming what I’ve felt about horror movies for quite some time. But then I actually saw The Cabin in the Woods, and I couldn’t help but wonder why I wasn’t seeing things as he saw them. Something wasn’t quite right.

Movie Review:: The Three Stooges (2012) (PG)

I must recuse myself as not being the biggest fan of the original Three Stooges comedy team and the shorts that made them so famous. I always thought the act amounted to little more than a one-trick pony; there’s only so much face-slapping, head-pounding, eye-poking, nyuk-nyuking, and woo-wooing I can take before it becomes stale and repetitive. If you’ve seen one, you’ve pretty much seen them all – the occasional tweaks to the act notwithstanding. Knowing this, I find myself in the position of reviewing The Farrelly Brothers’ The Three Stooges, which isn’t a biopic but a revival in which new actors replace Moe Howard, Curly Howard, and Larry Fine as their knuckleheaded alter egos. True to form, the film is a juvenile comedy that features scene after scene after scene of relentless, over the top slapstick.
