Moonrise Kingdom
Pretty much unarguably one of the best films of last year was Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, though it was only nominated for one academy award -- that being best original screenplay (which was written by Anderson and Roman Coppola). Though its chances are slim, it is still campaigning, and one of the benefits of this campaign is the opportunity to read the...

It's like a breath of fresh air when you walk into a movie theater and watch a film that's been one hundred percent created from a person's mind.

This week we'd like to touch upon some of the original...

This has been a huge pivot point for movies in how they're made and distributed. 2012 was the year where the film industry turned its back on 35 millimeter film (which has been the standard for well over a century), with digital projection no longer just an option but the standard. At the same time a filmmaker like Paul Thomas Anderson shot a movie on 70mm - a format that hadn't been used...

Most kids have gone back to school and the weather is slowly cooling down for the fall season.  Many believe that this summer's movie season was one of the weakest in the past couple of years, but we think otherwise. It was chocked full of fascinating independent movies and stupidly fun popcorn flicks that hit our sweet spot. So let's reflect on some of the...
