Now Playing: THE BALLERINA
Well that was a complete waste of my time. By the time I realized that I was probably going to dislike the series, I was already halfway through so I went ahead and finished it. Ugh!
I suppose directing has similarities to designing a play in sports. We both use overheads and scheme how to make moving elements work together toward an intended outcome. This week I've been watching quite a bit of sports. Ironically, although my background is in broadcast, watching sports is not something I naturally gravitate towards. However, October's script is a "sports" movie. Such films use a specific structure that I want to test a few unconventional ideas against. My theory is that to break expectations, you have to stay pretty close to them until precise moments. Plus writing about something well requires understanding it deeply and I had never engaged in this sport. Although it's not my favorite activity, every time I watch another match I learn something that will make the story more compelling. Research is a method to learn about an experience that isn't mine, which means, hopefully, creating a perspective with greater emapthy and a story with more meaning. | | | This photo is from the Asbury feature. I'm going through blocking (which sort of looks like describing a play strategy).
Character posters for CREED 2! New trailer tomorrow 🥊
New Bumble Bee trailer has been released! AUTOBOTS...ROLLOUT!What did you all think about the trailer? @goatmoviepodcast
I missed this in the theater which is surprising because if you know me, you know how much I talk about A24 movies. (Looking forward to Under The Silver Lake, directed/written by It Follows David Robert Mitchell). Hereditary received alot of buzz and I've seen it on many top of the year lists which is hard to do in the horror genre. While I think it is a good movie it did not reach my expectations.
I felt the majority of the first half was a dull serious family drama and the second half went over the top. It didn't go as crazy as say Mother! but from the start of that you knew it was going to be strange. I just wasn't a fan of the way the story was told, the sudden change of pace.
Overall I did enjoy the movie but not as much as I wanted. There are a few jaw dropping moments, I won't be rolling my car windows down any time soon.
I really liked that opening shot of the doll house zooming in then back out to the characters.
You knew Ann Dowd's character was up to no good, she plays that role perfect just like in The Leftovers.
Toni Collette and Alex Wolff were fantastic.

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! Of course we all know what that means... ITS TIME TO SHOW OFF SOME NEW MOVIES!!! 😎😎😎 This week has definitely treated me well in that department (or terribly, depending on how things go when I look at my bank account 😂😅🤣). Of course, the biggest release I had to snag was new Star Wars film, which I missed in the theaters simply because there was just so many films playing at the time. I was about half way through it when the mail man arrived, but I’m actually loving it so far!!! My most anticipated titles of the week were (shockingly I know 😉) the Scream Factory releases of the REC series, and the collectors edition of The Exorcist II. Lastly, as icing on the cake, while out and about I came across The Matrix 4K, season three of Ash VS Evil Dead, and finally, Salem’s Lot, the first of many incoming Stephen King films I recently discovered I was missing. WHEW!!! That’s one heck of a haul 😎How about all of you? Did you pick up anything good today? Have you watched any of these, and if so, what did you think? Sound off below!!!

So, the gorgeous Allison /@horrorheadx
tagged me in her ‘Underrated Gems’ post. My choices for this are super eclectic, because I’m obsessed with 95% of film genres. 😅 So many others I’d love to mention but I don’t own them physically(yet!). Which films fall into your unsung hero category? 💿 📼 🎞
Silicon Valley - Season One
Created by - John Altschuler, Mike Judge, and Dave Krinsky
Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Josh Brener
IMDb - 8.6
Rotten Tomatoes - 95%
Silicon Valley is a emmy winning comedy series that follows a group of men trying to become the next big thing in the place where everybody wants to be the next Steve Jobs. The series is created by John Altschuler, Mike Judge and Dave Krinsky who create a Big Bang Theory-ishq show that really makes fun of the people who think they can create the new best and biggest thing in the ever evolving tech world. The series in my opinion is nothing special but does have an interesting and unique take on sitcoms and it is at times very entertainable and funny. The series is strongest when all of the main characters are together and lack when they are separated (similar to shows like Arrested Development and Modern Family). The series is directed by a variety of different directors including Mike Judge, Tricia Brock and Alec Berg (also the co-creator of Barry) among others. The series stars Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Josh Brener, Kumail Nanjiani, and Martin Starr. The show has a very strong cast who are all very funny in their own ways but in my opinion Kumail Nanjiani easily gives the best performance. He is extremely funny but also has the capability to be a really great drama actor too. Some other great parts of the show include the writing, cinematography (although quite average there's not really any cinematography that would suit the show better), and production design. Some of the best episodes include Third Party Insourcing and Optimal Tip-To-Tip Efficiency.Therefore Silicon Valley Season One is an enjoyable series in the moment but after finishing the season it just gets forgotten amidst all the other much better comedy shows.

“The Friends of Eddie Coyle” (1973) The allure of this film is its mundane spaces filmed so as to suggest some level of exclusion. Eddie is always moving into spaces, trying to wiggle his way in between, and I think these small physical movements are reflective of his greater class struggle. He is firmly part of Boston’s lower middle class, and he no longer possesses aspirations of anything but maintaining that limited status, mostly by staying out of jail. He is also constantly shut out by people socially above him who are also completely invisible, the unseen New Hampshire prosecutor, and “the Man”. Combine these factors with a camera that is removed enough to suggest a kind of constant surveillance and it becomes easy to see why ‘70s American Cinema seems so paranoid and why the characters seem to have so little traction. #thefriendsofeddiecoyle #robertmitchum #peteryates #peterboyle #richardjordan #stevenkeats #alexrocco #classicfilms #classichollywood #crimefilm #cinephile #cinephilecommunity #filmcriticism #criterioncollection #notesonfilm
has created a fun series titled “Remake/Remake” all about...you guessed it...movie remakes! His first review is all about Friday the 13th. Check it out over at cinemavertigogo.com
It Comes at Night (2017) Trey Edward Shults
Corpse Bride (2005) by Tim Burton. It's visually inspiring and fun. There is something magical about the classic stop-motion technique. 🎥🎞🎬📺📼
Fun fact: Tim Burton was in talks to direct The Fly (1986) instead of David Cronenberg and Michael Keaton as the lead instead of Jeff Goldblum. In hindsight, I think we can all agree we're lucky they turned it down.
Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant
