Sundance 2013My 2013 Sundance trip has already come and gone. In six days, I saw 13 movies, and my company hosted 3 events. I made it to 1 party, got lost on 1 bus, and almost missed 1 screening. I officially missed out on 1 movie that I had a ticket to and didn’t get to see, but it wasn’t on my original list to begin with, so I think I did pretty well!

Sundance 2013It’s time! Sundance 2013 is just around the corner. The festival kicks off Thursday, the 17th, and runs until Sunday, the 27th. The Sundance Film Festival creates an opportunity for independent film to make its mark on the entertainment industry at large. Last year, I saw Beasts of the Southern Wild, and I remember the electric energy and excitement that surged through the crowd after the screening. It was the type of energy that made me think, this movie is something special.

Which films will stand out this year? Only time will tell . . .

 

Les MiserablesA two-and-a-half-hour opera set during the French Revolution may not strike everyone as a great movie, but those naysayers are fools. Les Misérables is easily one of the best movies of the year.

Happy Hobbit day, my fellowship of FFOWers! For all you groggy-eyed fans who braved a 170-minute screening last night at 12:03 a.m., I know there’s only one thing you want besides sweet, black coffee: more Tolkien!

Every summer in the city of Metropolis, IL, superhero fans flock to the four-day Superman Celebration festival and attend live concerts, a massive costume contest, and the Superhero Fan Film Competition.  The 2013 competition is now open for entries, so this week we take a look at last year’s hilarious first place winner.

 

 

 

 

David Krumholtz pairing10.) The Santa Clause / Batman and Robin

Child actor Eric Lloyd played the lovable Charlie Calvin in The Santa Clause and then went on to play young Bruce Wayne in the colorful and perhaps, awesomely bad, Batman and Robin. Think of it this way: Spending time at the North Pole followed by an evening with Mr. Freeze should put anyone in the spirit for snow and holiday décor. Or, you could always pop in Serenity after The Santa Clause and watch Bernard the Elf (David Krumholtz) as Mr. Universe.

Skyfall is Daniel Craig’s third and best outing as Agent 007.  Usually, the new release of a Bond film sparks two things:  a spike in Aston-Martin automobile sales, and pub debates over the classic question, “Who’s the best James Bond?”


Thanks to the magic of stop-motion animation, this week’s film will finally answer that question.

 

 

 

HitchcockHitchcock stars Anthony Hopkins as the man behind the curtain, the legend behind the modern thriller and horror genre, the man, the myth: Mr. Alfred Hitchcock. Clad in major tummy padding and a face prosthetic, Hopkins performs through the disguise and sells the character of Hitchcock well. The movie, however, is not an all-encompassing look at the life of Alfred Hitchcock. On the contrary, it is a slice-of-life movie, focused specifically on the time Hitchcock spent making Psycho.

Today, we revisit Gotham with a brand new fan film that’s short on Batman but big on baddies, crazies, and agents of chaos.
