The Racial Face of Film

By DKIdea, published on Feb 20, 2014

...seems to be a hot button issue with many fans and I’ve not seen anyone anywhere really lay the cards on the table and express what the beef is all about.

Now, I’m familiar with those hardcore fans that want complete authenticity when it comes to converting comics to film, and wish Hollywood would do a better job of attaining it when casting decisions are made for certain characters. I’m one of them…sometimes. However, because I’ve also not seen a single character come to the silver screen unaltered in any way from the original material, I’ve become accustomed to looking... (more)

Nicolas Cage’s Wife Changed His Views of Hollywood

By Earn, published on Oct 28, 2013

At 49, Nicolas Cage has enjoyed a pretty successful career in Hollywood, both as an actor and a producer. But he’s now pointing a finger at the industry for discriminating against a certain breed of actors. And his accusations stem from none other than Cage’s young wife, 39-year-old Alice Kim.

Cage recently wrapped up his latest film, Outcast, for which most of the crew was Chinese. When doing an interview to promote the film, Cage slammed Hollywood for not offering viable lead roles for male actors of Asian descent. “I hope that we will see more Chinese actors in American... (more)

Watch Out! Hollywood I am Coming

By Uttam Gill, published on May 15, 2012

... no inhibitions to claim that certainly, I wish to be an exhibitionist and perfectionist of dreams.

I am at the age, when many may not tread to venture out in highly disappointing arena, where failure rate is alarmingly very high. I wish to leap into the most happening place and that is Hollywood. Not with sense of bravado but as an aspiring claimant to be a Hollywood Star and also with a sense, to be what I am and what I should be.

I am under the spell and that is, to be or not to be. I say to myself, YES TO BE…Now you can read my mind. Tell me one thing; if suppose,... (more)

Mission accomplished!

By Gregory John Smith, published on Dec 18, 2011

It was all over the news in Singapore and everyone at school was talking about it; Hayley Mills and Trevor Howard were staying at the Raffles Hotel for the filming of “Pretty Polly”. Obviously this was nothing new for the already famous Raffles, which had hosted celebrities like Charlie Chaplin, John Wayne and Ava Gardner, as well as other personalities such as Somerset Maugham, Pablo Neruda and James Mitchener. The hotel had been the setting for innumerable film productions and was now to set the scene for Hayley’s latest film, so as a teenage fan of the then 21-year old actress, I simply... (more)

By MsExec, published on Sep 30, 2010

...

What I will say is that Hello is a rollercoaster of emotions that does not need special affects, elaborate set decorations, or a large acting troop to deliver such an entertainingly thought filled and emotion provoking event.

Beth and Stefan are absolutely worth the drive into Hollywood with chemistry is that is unconventionally captivating. Everything from the sound and lighting adds to the overall excellence that is HELLO.

I won't deny you the opportunity to read other reviews about the event which can be found on their facebook page:... (more)

Wilmington NC To Be The Next Hollywood?

By SanityCheck2, published on Nov 30, 2009

Well, the news here in North Carolina is that Wilmington is about to be the next Hollywood, only with state liquor stores, tens of thousands of devout Baptists and a series of social institutions right out of the middle ages. There is a language barrier as most folks in Wilmington speak Southern and only use English as a second Language.

There no doubt are some advantages to being on the opposite end of Interstate 40 but frankly, it doesn’t appear the powers that be in La La land have given this enough serious thought. To be polite, the benefits of filming in Wilmington, N.C. simply... (more)
