    It Only Happens Once a Lifetime

    Or never, in some folks unlucky cases. Or twice, if you were, say, born yesterday and live to be over 100 years and 1 day old. But by then no one will even realize the pop cultural significance of this day. Because today is:

    Time...Marches On!

    Most people who watch the opening segment of Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane, a faux newsreel called “News on the March,” don’t realize that it is a very precise parody of The March of Time, the innovative documentary short-subject series that played in theaters, while an equal...

    Director Clooney Casts Political Drama, Affleck "All In" with The Town, TV vs. Cinema

    - Occasional director George Clooney announced his intentions to adapt the play Farragut North some time ago. And now this February his movie is set to shoot with a powerful cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti and possibly Chris Pine, Evan Rachel Wood and Marisa Tomei (should they accept Clooney's offers).

Former Democratic politico Beau Willimon, after working on Howard Dean's '04 campaign, wrote the original story and first script draft about behind-the-scenes dirty campaign tricks for a Democratic cand...

    "Machete" Primer: "Grindhouse: Planet Terror"

    I've finished the second half of my self-assigned task to see the two "Grindhouse" features before seeing "Machete." You can go back and read my thoughts on Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof," which is the preferred part for many film buffs. I have to admit, though, that in many ways Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror" is more satisfying. It doesn't seem to have as much subtext going on, but there's a whole heck of a lot more happening on the screen here than in Tarantino's feature. As someone who's only liked one of Rodriguez's films in the past -- "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" -- I'll say I don't mind his films being mindless if they're a good...
