    Martin Scorsese Says He's Considering Making 'Silence' & Frank Sinatra Biopic In 3D

    Despite James Cameron's best intentions, for the most part, the 3D format has primarly been utilized as a cash grab by studios looking to pad out the bottom line in an era when box office receipts appear to be on the decline. However, 2011 marked a bit of a change. At the arthouse, Werner Herzog...

    2011: The Year In 3D

    If there is a single cinematic subject that seems to unite commenters, bloggers, filmmakers, distributors and exhibitors in vehemence, it has to be the rise/fall of the exciting new format/gimmicky fad that is the post-“Avatar” 3D film.

    From 'Drive' To 'Melancholia,' Here's Why 2011 Marked a Shift In the History of Cinematography

    The first movie I saw in theaters in 2011, aside from a couple of press screenings, was "Hugo." Yes, that's correct: I went nearly 11 months without bothering to see a new release. The reason? Honestly, there was nothing I felt couldn't wait until the DVD release.

    Screenwriter Eric Roth Says '8 1/2'-Style Spin-Off From Scorsese & De Niro's 'The Irishman' Never Came To Pass

    Like an arrow straight to the pleasure center of the brain of Scorsese fetishists was the announcement a couple of years back of "The Irishman" a film that would potentially reunite Martin Scorsese with Robert DeNiro, for the first time since 1995's "Casino," for a film about real-life hitman Frank ...

    Martin Scorsese Talks About Growing Up On Some 'Mean Streets' At New York's Lincoln Center

    Writing in 2003, while inducting Martin Scorsese's “Mean Streets” into his Great Movies list, Roger Ebert deemed the film as possessing “an elemental power, a sense of spiraling doom, that a more polished film might have lacked.” Wise words from the man who counts the 69-...

    Best Films of 2011

    If there were ever a year to be wimpy and declare a tie, this would have been it: choosing between my Number 1 and Number 2 films was just silly. One is big, the other smaller; both are ambitious and perfectly made, but in wildly different ways. I adore them both.

    GREY MATTERS: Martin Scorsese's interesting year

    Aside from being a lousy whitewash out to prove God-knows-what, Martin Scorsese’s George Harrison: Living in the Material World doesn’t even live up to some simple realities, things like the fact that when you’re Martin Scorsese, you most certainly do have a huge responsibility when taking on such a...

    Oscar Watch: The Artist is the One to Beat

    Yes, "The Artist" is running away with the Oscar ball. It's has love from critics, dominated the SAG and Golden Globes nominations, and is strong with actors and craftspeople alike. As a nostalgic love letter to the movies--and a comic/tragic/romance--it has everything a Academy member...
