Went and saw Birdman last night, great movie. The drum score was awesome, I liked when a drummer would pop up randomly in the movie a few times.

Also saw Dumb and Dumber To, the first movie is my favorite comedy of all time so had to check this one out. Based on the previews I thought it was going to turn out pretty horrible, but it actually wasn't too bad imo. Def not as good as original and some not so funny parts, but it's worth watching if you love the original anyway.

Comedy Central's been playing the original on a seemingly endless loop the past few nights...it really holds up well.  it's actually a very smartly written script, ironically -- easily one of the top three comedies of the '90s.

I just got back from seeing 'Top Five'. Chris Rock killed it and the film deserves all the hype it's been generating. I had no clue Jay and Kayne were Executive Producers or that ?uestlove oversaw the score. Seinfeld makes a great cameo whilst making it rain at a strip club and also throws on his personal top five at the end. Props to CR for getting some of the best black comedians together for little cameos throughout. Cedric the Entertainer steals every scene he has during a flashback to Houston circa 2003.

Watched this last night.



Pretty great I have to say. Really inspirational and relatable for me. Lots of nuggets on song writing and composition philosophy. Recommended.

so, semester's finally done, and for the first time ever i actually have a few good student films under my belt. here's the one from my main course; it's an (as of now) untitled, uncredited piece that delves into my experiences with religion growing up, and by extension my feelings on religion in general. it stars my little brother as a young version of me in a fictionalized pastiche of all those early sunday mornings i had to wake up and attend mass. hopefully it's enjoyed here; it was pretty well received in my class, as i ended up actually winning first place in a vote amongst my peers, meaning i get to screen this publicly next semester and have people clap at my general direction for doing well, which is pretty cool.

@JF- I can see why it was well received. Your bro was great in it and you showed great dexterity in getting all of that co-ordinated while that service was going on. I'd be curious as to what negative critique you copped (if any).

Topically I was expecting the camera to cut to Moe Green getting whacked back in Vegas. And nobody fucks with Moe Green.

Your films are fun to watch-even fresh. No pretense, whatsoever. Keep working in and exploring causes you believe in.

i borrowed my uncle's dolly-rig, which is basically just three sets of wheels that attach to the bottom of any tripod.  then, the rig is set atop a couple 5' sections of PVC pipe connected with wood dowels -- it's a very cost-effective solution to get that film-look without an elaborate set of expensive metal rails.

 

also, thank you guys for the positive responses thus far!  it definitely took some doin' trying to find a church that would let me shoot this footage, i sorta had to remain vague about my intentions even though i don't think the piece explicitly bashes Christianity at all...churches, maybe, but i feel like religion itself remains unscathed in the film.

It is difficult to make sense of modern cinema. I only saw two movies-both documentaries to share this year. The Life of Vivien Mayer and E. Snowden.

It should be no surprise therefore that I tend to recycle kubrick stuff.

Well y'all know how very trolllish I can be...so here is a review of a movie someone very close to me made. I figure someone would be as odd as me and enjoy crappy movies. JF-if you want tocritique it like these guys did-have at it. I think you appreciate campy ish. But, yeah I do have a lot of Holden Caulfield/hipster/caddish propensities that I must rid myself of-so for the sake of katihar sis (and love):
