Video: John Carter Director Andrew Stanton Interview

Andrew Stanton is an Oscar Winning director.  He helmed the Pixar animated blockbusters, WALL*E & Finding Nemo.  Here we are sitting in Arizona desert talking about John Carter.



Chronicle Movie Review

Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan) is a teenager with real problems.  His father Richard (Mike Kelly) is a real bastard.  He’s just plain mean.  Everything bad in this man’s life is going to be taken out on his son.  In a effort to fight back, Andrew decides to start filming his day-to-day life.   Millions of young people do this everyday on their iPhones, iPads or Flip Cams.  NO SPOILERS HERE

Something happens to Andrew and his cousin, Matt Garetty (Alex Russell)  and a guy he knows from high school, Steve Montgomery (Michael B. Jordan).  As you’ve seen in the Chronicle movie trailer, the trio soon begin having telekinetic ability.   At first, this new talent is only used for practical jokes & insane juggling.

Didn’t Marvel’s Stan Lee write, ‘With great power comes great responsibility.’  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that these accelerating powers, Andrew would soon be going to the Dark Side.  There’s a steady build the does indeed have a payoff at the end.  There were shots in this film that were so clever and well executed.  This is pure Sci-Fi fun.

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close Movie Review


“Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.” What does the title mean? For me, the heart & soul of this movie is young Oskar Schell (Thomas Horn). So I believe the movie’s moniker pertains to Oskar and the events of 9/11. ‘Extremely Loud’ may be him describing huge airplanes slamming the World Trade Center. ‘Incredibly Close’ is really the best way to describe his relationship with his father, Thomas Schell(Tom Hanks).

One day, while looking through his father’s belongings, Oskar finds a key. But what secret could it uncover? Oskar & his dad were all about using deductive skills to solve most any mystery. This key just might unlock something that’ll bring him just a little bit closer to his father whom he misses so very much. And so it goes. This amazing kid, using wit & passion, searches throughout the five boroughs of New York.

The scenes are intense. My favorite parts of the movie were the flashbacks of happier times between Thomas & his son, Oskar. They were very sweet & made you feel good. The downside, those scenes are scant. The material here is very tough to watch. You’re talking about ripping off the scab of 9/11 and it is polarizing. There are people out in the world who feel, it’s good to stir up these emotions & weep about what happened to our country that awful day. I’m not one of those people.
