What’s with our obsession with celebrity? The whole TMZ, Perez, gossip sites that so many of us venture to regularly to get our fix – why do we do it? Is it the glamour? I suppose. Maybe we all have a little voyeur in us? Could be. Or maybe we just like watch a train wreck.
In his new film Collaborator, actor/director Martin Donovan shines a subtle light on the power of celebrity and how it can save and ruin lives. Check out the trailer and then read our review after the jump!
In the late 1990′s wrestling was all the rage. And for the briefest moment in time, the rage was caused by World Championship Wrestling and their band of former World Wrestling Federation stars, the New World Order.
I remember describing the NWO to my girlfriend at the time as this – you have your good guys, your bad guys and then the EVEN worse guys. That’s the NWO.
And yes, that’s right. I was watching wrestling AND had a girlfriend.
The NWO helped WCW dominate the Monday night wrestling wars for a good two years, and nearly helped put the WWF out of business. However, poor planning and stoylines and complete mismanagement eventually led WWF to purchase their rival, and along with it, all the NWO footage and trademarks, which is now on display in the new Blu-Ray/DVD collection NWO: The Revolution. Check out the trailer below and then hit the jump to read our review.
This Thursday, thousands upon thousands of pop culture fanatics from around the world are going to arrive in San Diego for Comic-Con 2012, mecca for the uber geek in all of us. Now, while I’ve never been to San Diego Comic Con , watching Morgan Spurlock’s wonderful documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, I felt as though I received a crash course in what all the hype is about. Check out the trailer and then read more after the jump.
Is it me, or does North America cinema not really deal in epics anymore? And by epics, I mean films like Spartacus or Ben-Hur or Lawrence of Arabia; those larger than life films that take a main character (or characters) on an epic widescreen journey of adventure and/or self-discovery. I’m wracking my brain trying to think of any (leave a comment at the bottom if you can, would you?)
Maybe that’s why watching the Hong Kong film Confucius felt so fresh to me.
