A Movie Lover's Prayer
You want better movies? Pay for better movies. Last week Warner Bros. released Cloud Atlas, a grandly ambitious film that provides the viewers with an experience that’s almost impossible to describe. Like the symphony at the center of the film, Cloud Atlas intertwines six different stories into a seamless (and to my mind and eye beautiful) piece of music. I could have paused the movie at...
Game Of Thrones: What Is Dead May Never Die
So I finished the first two seasons of Game of Thrones last night and I have thoughts. Spoilers ahead. And “What is dead may never die” is also a zombie reference - right? Zombies Really? Zombies?

It’s stories like this that...

TDKR: Nolan Giving Up on Humanity?
Just got back from seeing The Dark Knight Rises and I thought I’d make my first blog post here about the movie. Overall, I really liked it (although the picture was really bad at the Arclight which was distracting). The action was great. Bale was better than he’s been in any other Batman film. Having the opportunity to show so much vulnerability really worked for him. And I...
