Many Bothans died to bring you this information Being a small part of A New Hope nobody thought too hard on, Rogue One is a funny thing to make a movie about. It basically exists to serve the purpose of another, larger movie, while sort of acting as a self-sustaining entity on its own. It’s… Read More

“It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream – making a vein attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation.” – Joseph Conrad I dream, a lot, consistently every night – usually three or four times. I happen to remember them too. When you had several dreams… Read More

Finding a remake that doesn’t fudge itself is rare nowadays. Probably ‘cause remakes are good for business, but not reputation. After all, if you’re creating another version of something that’s already been created, your intentions probably weren’t noble to begin with.

You’re are often left wandering how much of it is real and… Read More

The movie’s screenplay writers, Marc Haimes and Chris Butler, know… Read More

Reviewers go through phases of thinking. I know I have. The early years murk themselves in the optimism that comes with any kind of puberty; only for the inspired idealism to be dulled by the gradual grind of movie after movie.
