Filmmaker Sonja Dunson: I Wear Many Hats

By Gary Schwind, published on Sep 11, 2009

...I was a regular on three tevelvision series. ON DA, I co-starred with William Conrad and Harry Morgan. Also Emergency with Julie London, Kevin Tighe, and Randolph Mantooth. And prior to those, I was on Lohman and Barkley. It was comedy sketches. After that, I published my own magazine, Black Hollywood. That was for actors, actresses, music, behind-the-scenes, and all phases of the entertainment business. I had that from 1977 to 1979. Lo and behold, a few years ago, I heard that the SBA, the Small Business Administration, was going to fund movies for the first time. I went to the SBA here... (more)

Do Viewers Know About "knowing"?

By FMeekins, published on Sep 2, 2009

... solar flare. Not even at this point did screenwriters clarify where they came down theologically. For example, as Cage proceeded to board the craft, he was informed that only the chosen could enter.

Did this mean only those professing belief in God (about the best you can hope for from Hollywood as a positive ascent to the need for a relationship with Christ would be out of the question) since earlier in the film Cage's character hinted at lacking faith in a conscious divine power. Or more likely, were these tots suppose to be Indigo Children, a new classification of adolescent... (more)

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 18, 2009

... – where two couples will get “whacked” every week during a three-week period in the middle of the season.

Great – ballroom dancing as a contact sport. Why not just dress them in those outlandish costumes, give them paintball guns and have them fight it out on Hollywood Boulevard?

Okay, so now that you know the rest of the story, let’s get to why you’re reading this. You want to know who’s going to be playing this season, right? Okay so here goes, and in no particular order (dramatic music as lights dim):

Interview With A Funny Indian

By wolviela, published on Aug 3, 2009

...but the difference with me is that I’m coming from a small town in Ohio whereas Russell comes from Toronto, which is the most cosmopolitan city in the world. So you go if you are in the right place at the right time, but you meet someone from some small town in Ohio and making it in Hollywood you kind of go “ok that could be me.” I’m a little more a little close to what the average Indian is.

Wolviela: So where do you see yourself two years from now?

Funny Indian: My mom asked me the same exact question a couple days ago. I would be married, ... (more)

Transformers: Revenge Of The Pudding Heads

By tmoya, published on Jul 19, 2009

...I was so looking forward to months ago. Unfortunately the experience was much like going to a party,given by one of your parents’ friends – you had to go, the party was okay, but staying home could of also worked out fine.This Transformers movie serves as a case study for a common Hollywood fallacy thatdictates, “More is better.” In thiscase more comedy, more explosions, and more robots didn’t make a more enjoyable movie. Now had the screenwriters put more originality into the story these excesses could of worked. Instead this movie plods along from one effect... (more)

Are The Dodgers Ready For Barrywood?

By Ed Attanasio, published on May 9, 2009

...but who cares? It will be fun to watch, and those teams with the better pharmacists will be the most successful.

But, back to the subject of the Dodgers signing Barry Bonds. Just think of all the buzz it would create. It would piss off both Giants and Dodgers fans. Barry would embrace Hollywood and vice versa. It would be a great "forgive and forget" moment, a feel-good scenario unlike anything we've ever seen. And in the end, if Bonds can mean a few additional victories for the Big Blue, why not at least give it a try?

Think about it, Ned Colletti. I believe that L.A. is... (more)
