    Review: 'Limitless' Expands The Boundaries of Bradley Cooper's Charm

    Originally (and enigmatically) titled “Dark Fields,” Neil Burger’s latest film now bears the bland moniker “Limitless,” making it sound like a film scraped together from D.C. Comics’ dregs. But rather than being another entry in the seemingly neverending superhero genre, “Limitless” is a sci-fi-infl...

    SXSW: Miranda July Says 'The Future' Is Her Version Of A Horror Film

    And More We Learned About Her New FilmFew working filmmakers are as divisive as Miranda July. Her first film, "Me and You and Everyone We Know" was to some, one of the best films of the last decade, but to others was barely watchable insufferable hipster bait. We're firmly in the former camp, and a...

    Karl Gajdusek To Rewrite William Monahan's Script For Joseph Kosinski's 'Horizons' (aka 'Oblivion')

    Even though "Tron: Legacy" underperformed and was met with a collective shrug from both fanboys and critics alike, Disney still wants to be in the Joseph Kosinski business and he's got a property they think will make them a mint. His graphic novel "Oblivion" was picked up by Disney a while ago and l...

    DIY Days NYC: You Missed An Incredible Gathering Of Incredible People

    Why does it still feel amazing that a whole group of people come together to share knowledge, organize that gathering, and take the resulting inspiration out into the world -- and that they do it for free? That question is worthy of a future post, but for now we are here to celebrate DIY DAYS, the event that we must now ordain as a necessary institution. I was a keynote speaker last year. This year Christine Vachon and I discussed our past and hopes for the future. Earlier I ran a post on Chuck Wendig's presentation he did this year on "Where Storytelling & Gaming Collide" . Today we are happy to offer you Zeke Zelker's overview of the ...

    Do You Believe in Magic?: 2011's Mix of Fairy Tale Adaptations

    Over the course of the past month I’ve had the (arguable) pleasure of seeing three new films adapted from fairy tales. First was the new teen drama “Beastly,” which I reviewed here; it’s flawed at best, with few redeeming moments. I liked more of “Red Riding Hood,” and reviewing it got me thinking about what one needs to successfully adapt one of these classic stories to the screen in the 21st century, with or without an “update” in setting. I also caught Catherine Breillat’s new film “The Sleeping Beauty,” which is a resounding success. With these movies in mind, I’d like to jump one step further from Chris’s post on the trouble with adaptin...
