At the end of 1862, in the wake the Union victory at the Battle of Antietam, Abraham Lincoln took a bloody and ugly Civil War to a far higher level – he issued the Emancipation Proclamation. In bold and ringing words it was declared;
That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free...
I first heard this recited at the end of one episode... Read More
Set in early 1990’s Los Angeles, The Big Lebowski is a comedy follows the misadventures of a jobless loser called The Dude, whose life revolves around smoking marijuana, drinking white Russians, listening to Creedence, and bowling. His sweet carefree life is disrupted in a case of mistaken identity, when a pornographer’s idiot thugs pee on The Dude’s rug because he happens to have the same name as a crippled millionaire whose ex-pornstar trophy wife owes the pornographer money. Seeking restitution for his soiled rug, The Dude gets drawn into a convoluted mystery involving the kidnapped... Read More
"Flight" stars Denzel Washington as Whip Whitaker, plays with fire and enjoys it but is soon forced to be seated in his own hot chair to face some facts. He's an airline pilot who's an addict and an alcoholic. In my opinion the movie succeeds in being an adult drama, as it will have you on the edge of your own chair. It’s a real crowd-pleaser.
An hour into the flight his plane starts having major mechanical failures while en route to Atlanta forces Whitaker to make an emergency landing in an open field. Engines explode and parts go flying and just before this scene we shockingly witnessed... Read More
James Bond my sexy beloved 007 British Secret Agent is back in “Skyfall”. And who wouldn’t love this character? He’s hot with all the ladies and always has a shaken-not-stirred martini. Known for his silver Aston Martin and up to date with all the newest gadgets. The ever so cool new James Bond movie comes across fit, smooth and polished even at 50 years old.
The film is directed by Sam Mendes; written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan, based on the character written by Ian Fleming; director of photography, Roger Deakins; edited by Stuart Baird and Kate Baird; music by Thomas... Read More
There is some disagreement about whether the movie's story and theological questions hold up to its vision:
Rotten Tomatoes says "Director Ang Lee creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery."
The New York Times says the film "unfolds in a setting that is one of the great achievements of digital cinema, and a reminder that the eclectic Mr. Lee is, among other things, an exuberant and inventive visual artist." ... "There are images in 'Life of Pi' that are so beautiful,... Read More
Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I give you to, Creepshow.
Every day, I'd get home from school and put on a movie. Either I would rent some ultra-violent sleaze-fest from Tonys’ Video down the block (Tony, who would let me rent 555, but thought Rocky Horror was inappropriate because of the "gay scenes.” ...go figure), or I would slip in the Videodisc of one of three movies; Creepshow, Altered States, and Halloween 3. All Videodiscs I still have, mind you! They are hanging with pride on the wall in the bedroom. Altered States being that mind blowing trip that fuelled... Read More
Moving picture fans rejoice, today the National Media Museum in the UK made an astonishing announcement to the world.
They have discovered inside a museum vault, hidden inside an old tin dating back to 1899, examples of the oldest color moving picture process known. Imagine, they were cached away for over a century. Needless to say this has re-written the history of early film.
Three years ago, in their archive, two rolls of film were discovered. They were created by inventor and photographer Edward Raymond Turner. Born in Somerset in 1873, he was schooled in London... Read More
