Once upon a time…Hollywood cranked out one Western Film after another. Audiences loved them; they couldn't get enough rough riding, bad guys, good guys, crooked sheriffs, gunfights, lone heroes, and cliffhanging rescues. They made cowboys the biggest movie stars. Then tastes changed and the western all but faded away, morphing into what are ... Read More

If you look up the definition of the word tenet you will find the following: a principle, belief, or doctrine generally held to be true especially one held in common by members of an organization, movement, or profession.   If you ask director Christopher Nolan (Inception) his definition of Tenet, he will probably tell you it is a movie t...

What would be the best time to film and release a movie about a pandemic?  In the middle of a pandemic, of course.  That is exactly what director Adam Mason (The Devil's Chair) did this past summer while Los Angeles was on lockdown.  Songbird, which is being distributed this month by STX Films, is the result of this venture.  Wr...

In an age of Pixar/Disney/Illuminations computer-drawn animation, it's difficult to imagine "old school" hand-drawn feature films.  They are time-consuming and one wrong stroke of a pen could mean throwing out a drawing and starting all over again.  They also don't have the same level of precision or coloring that a comp...

In 1983 Eddie Murphy was in his third year as a regular on Saturday Night Live.  While on the show he created some memorable characters such as Adult Buckwheat, Sarcastic Gumby, and Mr. Robinson (a parody of Mr. Rogers). The year prior, he also made his feature film debut co-starring with Nick Nolte (The Prince of Tides) in 48 Hours.  The... Read More

From 1981 to 2001, Michael Mann (Manhunter) directed only seven feature films.  In that same time frame, Tom Cruise (Top Gun) more than tripled that number of films, and Jaime Foxx (Ray) had a total of eleven with his Oscar-winning performance coming later that year as the lead in Ray.  Jada Pinkett Smith (Scream 2, as Jada Pinkett) had a...

In the 1970s there was a screenplay floating around based on a story by Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner) about a man who experiences a vivid dream/or wakes up from one. The film made its way around all the studios and was stuck in development hell for a while, until one studio, Carolco, a director's studio, got a hold of the script and thought it woul... Read More

This December is the 30th Anniversary of The Godfather Part III's original release in theaters.  In celebration of the milestone, legendary director Francis Ford Coppola spent months working on a new edit of the film now titled, The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. The film is clearly the weakest of the trilogy but ...

In the early 1980's Eddie Murphy's career was on the rise.  With the success of Saturday Night Live and his budding movie career, it seemed he could practically do no wrong.  After starring in 48 Hours, Trading Places, and Beverly Hills Cop, it seemed the "golden boy" had the Midas touch.  Then came his next feature film, 1...

With so many marriages ending in divorce is it inevitable that there will be blended families.  Step- and half siblings have become sort of the norm, at least in the United States.  But what if you never knew you have a brother or sister?  What if your dad left when you were a child and promised to come back, but he never did?  ...
