AFI Film Festival

The AFI Film Festival; hosted from November 10th – 17th 2016 at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California. My AFI Experience It’s Monday night and I’m waiting in line to see the most recent Disney feature film, Moana. The line is very long and I’m wondering if I’m even going to get into the theater at all. Why is the line so long on a Monday night? Why is the show sold out? It’s because I’m at the annual AFI (American Film Institute) Film Festival, which is a free event that celebrates both Hollywood and independent films made throughout the world. So, my friend and I get to the door with just a few people in front of us. We’re so excited that we’re going to get to see this feature film before it even hits theaters. So, we wait…and wait…and wait. Finally, we make it in just as the...

Batman: The Killing Joke Movie Review

  Batman: The Killing Joke is one of the most famous Batman comics in the superhero’s history. The Killing Joke follows Batman as he tries to tracks down The Joker after he as kidnaped Commissioner Gordon. The graphic novel was controversial in it’s day for it’s disturbing content and because of that the movie adaptation has received a R rating.  While The Killing Joke does not quit live up to expectations of die hard Batman fans, there is plenty a creepy and insane moments to sink your teeth into. First off, The Killing Joke does make use of the R rating with the Violence and disturbing imagery.

Guess Who’s Playing Winston Churchill?

Kevin Spacey. That’s right. Maybe the actor just has a knack for playing political roles. Any fan of Netflix’s original “House of Cards” will know just how true this is. The film is called “Captain of the Gate” and will center around the former prime minister of Great Britain. TheHollywoodReporter writes “Ben Kaplan, who previously tackled the late President Ronald Reagan for a History Channel film, wrote the screenplay. He also has penned episodes for the documentary TV series Vietnam in HD and WWII in HD.” So obviously, lots of history stuff goin’ on here. This should excite you if you’re into that sort of stuff. Currently the film has no director and they are looking for one. To read more about the story or “Captain of th...

Plane Crash Film Has MH370 Similarities

An upcoming film, ‘Deep Water,’ centers around a plane that crashes on its way to China and the people on the plane must fight for their lives. This film probably would have gone relatively unnoticed if it weren’t for the tragedy that was bestowed upon Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 which has been missing since March 8.

It’s a tricky thing,” he told Mail Online. “But in simple terms, Deep Water is about an accident that happens on an airplane which goes down in the ocean, and the survivors trying to stay alive afterwards....

We’ve heard a lot of Spiderman news as of late, but here’s even more: the director of the ‘The Amazing Spiderman’ series will be leaving after ‘The Amazing Spiderman 3.’ Marc Webb says he has had enough. “I want to help and contribute, but I think three movies…honestly, that’s it for me,” Webb told Entertainment Weekly. “I want to try other things.” ‘The Amazing Spiderman 3’ will be released in 2016 and ‘4’ in 2018 respectively.
