What's Behind Room 237?

What's Behind Room 237? | McDaniel College Film Community | Scoop.it
The Shining, Immersion Criticism, and what might be the documentary of the year.

 

So excited to see this. On Stanley Kubrick films, I tend to try not to get caught up in the amount of subtext in each film--otherwise I'd drown in it like some of the critics in this documentary. Amazing analysis by Klosterman, a favorite author of mine, on the concept of Immerision.

6 Insane Stereotypes That Movies Can't Seem to Get Over

6 Insane Stereotypes That Movies Can't Seem to Get Over | McDaniel College Film Community | Scoop.it
It turns out there are subtle ways that Hollywood has been enforcing wrongheaded ideas right under our noses, and sometimes in our favorite films.

 

Although I think a lot of these stereotypes are no longer prevalent in film, the article still makes a great point in that sometimes depiction of different ethnicities and cultures is severely flawed.

Sylvester Stallone & Robert De Niro Confirmed for ‘Grudge Match’

Sylvester Stallone & Robert De Niro Confirmed for ‘Grudge Match’ | McDaniel College Film Community | Scoop.it
Warner Bros. has greenlit 'Grudge Match', a comedy featuring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro as ex-boxers who come out of retirement for one last fight.

 

Pretty ingenious idea. Although I'm not a fan of Hollywood carbon-copy films, this looks to be a great popcorn comedy.

Seems like a pretty fantastic initial reaction. Acting gets the best props, but, from the outset, critics think it's unorganized. Not surprised. Tough material.

Praise for Alexandre Desplat's Score for 'Rise of the Guardians' Already Surfacing | McDaniel College Film Community | Scoop.it

...Finally, for my money, one of the most impressive elements of the film is the score composed by the ridiculously prolific 51-year-old Frenchman Alexandre Desplat...

This is very exciting! I already have fell in love with Desplat's score for The Tree of Life.

LADY VENGEANCE: SINISTER REVIEW (FANTASTIC FEST 2012)

LADY VENGEANCE: SINISTER REVIEW (FANTASTIC FEST 2012) | McDaniel College Film Community | Scoop.it

 
A mainstream production with a mainstream star, Sinister employs such horror movie tropes as a nice family moving into a new house with a past, the supernatural traveling through photographs and movies, and suspiciously troubled children.

 

So excited for this movie. First horror movie this year that would have the potential to scare and enlighten.

Music in film: Indiana Jones and the perfect fifth | Den of Geek

With Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures out today on Blu-ray, Ivan salutes John Williams’ outstanding theme…...

 

Raiders Of The Lost Ark is re-released on Blu-ray in the UK today as part of Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures. It's a move that's got fedora fans around the world excited, giving them the chance to see one of the best movies of all time - plus Harrison Ford's sexy young face - in high definition. But it's more than that. As you'd expect from one of history's few flawless films, Raiders Of The Lost Ark has a cracking soundtrack to match.

 

The Theme to Indiana Jones is synonomous with the character and film. Glad he got recognition. Couldn't imagine the film without it.
