Awesome Art We've Found Around The Net: Steven Spielberg Special

Some cliche somewhere said that 'a picture is worth a thousand words.' This has proven to be the case for me and especially when it comes to fan art. I have always sought out great fan art and have wanted to share it with as many people as possible. "Awesome Artwork We've Found Around The Net" is the outlet for that passion. In this column I will showcase the kick-ass...

The crew gives off that family vibe in latest trailer for Showtime's Roadies

VINYL was supposed to be the cable network series that operated with music at its heart... but, as we've seen, that hasn't turned out to be the case for most viewers. Maybe ROADIES will fill in the void then.  Showtime has a new series on tap from Cameron Crowe and executive produced by J.J. Abrams that deals more with the eclectic crew of a touring rock and roll...

Cameron Crowe goes behind the scenes of rock and roll with Roadies trailer

Cameron Crowe 's history with music (once a contributing editor at Rolling Stone magazine) is always going to open the door for it to play a vital role in his creative process and the projects he involves himself with. Already once before, Crowe dove head-on into the world of rock and roll, following the fictional band Stillwater for the purposes of watching 15-year-old William Miller...

Ang Lee's next film will be a 3D boxing epic

Ang Lee does not like to repeat himself. Just look at his films and see if there is anything that thematically or visually ties them together: THE ICE STORM, EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, HULK, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, LIFE OF PI, CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON. Each is a unique genre and has a distinct visual flair. The only consistent things about Ang Lee are his varied...

Hilarious U.S. trailer for I Give It A Year starring Rose Byrne, Anna Faris, and Rafe Spall

Yes, I used boobies to bring you here. Writer/Director Dan Mazer has made a name for himself with the Sacha Baron Cohen comedies BRUNO, BORAT, and ALI G IN DA HOUSE, and is now moving on to his own features, starting with the British romcom I GIVE IT A YEAR. The straightforward pic follows the "trials and tribulations of a newlywed couple during their first year of...

Cinematographer Christopher Doyle trash talks Life of Pi, Lincoln, and the Academy Awards

I will start this out by saying that I loved LIFE OF PI, but did not agree with it winning an award for cinematography at the Academy Awards. The movie is beautifully shot, but is primarily CGI. Awarding the Oscar to it would be like awarding a cinematography trophy to a Pixar film. Not to take anything away from the quality of the movie, but they are different skill sets lent to their...

This trailer for I Give It A Year looks like the best romantic comedy in a long time

To put it bluntly, romantic comedy is the shittiest genre. Per capita, there are more bad romcoms than there are good ones. We have gone entire years without having a decent romantic comedy movie, which is a shame. Katherine Heigl , Jennifer Lopez , Sandra Bullock , and Kate Hudson collectively have reduced the genre to a joke. But there is hope. The release of BRIDESMAIDS...

New poster round-up: Life of Pi, Wreck-It Ralph, Les Miserables, and On the Road

If running these poster round-ups has taught me anything over the last months, its that a good piece of promotional artwork is hard to find. And for, that matter, it is often the most well-intentioned of the lot that are the most unintentionally funny.  Which is at least better (I think) than a bad photoshop job - and while most of these posters have plenty of photoshopping going on,...

New Clip from Ang Lee's Life of Pi features stunning visuals and a tiger

Ang Lee's LIFE OF PI is set to open next month and already it's generating buzz as "the next AVATAR" in terms of visually stunning special effects.  I guess you could have a worse comparison.  In this new clip from the film, the titular star is writing a "message in a bottle" describing his plight just before coming face-to-face with his companion/adversary, a Bengal...
