    movie review: Green Lantern

    It isn’t innovative, it isn’t deep, the characters aren’t particularly well-developed, but I still had a good time watching Green Lantern. It’s hard to dislike a movie that has shortcomings and still provides an enjoyable viewing experience. I even liked its use of 3-D, ...

    movie review: City Of Life And Death

    Chinese filmmaker Chuan Lu has tackled a vast and ambitious subject in City of Life and Death. I knew very little about the siege on Nanjing (or Nanking, as Westerners have long referred to it) in 1937; I feel as if I understand it now, in all of its grim reality. A documentary might provide...

    Guest Post: Gavin Wiesen "Coming-Of-Age Movies Never Die!"

    One of things we love about films is how they transport us a different time and place. Perhaps nothing has such a strong hold on our memories as our first steps towards adulthood. For me that period is fully equated with my visits and eventual move to NYC. When I produced The Ice Storm it was a daily trip back to my most awkward moments. I return there when ever I enter the canon of NYC Coming-Of-Age tales; they are truly a genre on their own. For a filmmaker to walk into this community, requires great courage and knowledge, ambition and research. I was happily reassured viewing Gavin Wiesen's THE ART OF GETTING BY, for it was clear tha...

    Darren Aronofsky To Direct Michael Chabon's 'Hobgoblin' Pilot For HBO

    Darren Aronofsky may still be coming out of his "Black Swan" afterglow, but with his calendar now free after dropping out of "The Wolverine," he's certainly keeping busy. He's been mulling over a sci-fi pic with George Clooney, been pursued by two major studios for franchise films and even found time to direct a pair of commercials, all while trying to get his $130 million passion project "Noah" off the ground. Well, it appears his dance card isn't getting any less full as Variety reports he's now slated to direct the pilot episode of a new HBO series "Hobgoblin." We first heard about the series a few months ago and our interest was immediate...

    'The Social Network' Secret Weapon Josh Pence Joins Aaron Sorkin's 'More As This Story Develops'

    Broadway Stars John Gallagher Jr and Thomas Sadoski Also On Board For HBO PilotOn the special features of the DVD for "The Social Network," actor Josh Pence admits that he was devastated when he discovered that he'd been cast in a major role in a new David Fincher film, but that his face and voice would never be heard on screen. Pence provided the body of Tyler Winklevoss, but co-star Armie Hammer's face was digitally inserted on the body, to maintain the illusion of identical twin-dom. But the graciousness of Hammer and Fincher on the publicity circuit ensured that Pence's name got out there, and he hasn't done too badly off it, landing supp...
