Trailer Alert – 10 Cloverfield Lane

JJ Abrams company, Bad Robot, is back at it, this time bringing what seems to be the sequel to the 2008 found-footage cult classic, Coverfield. John Goodman isn’t happy that nobody wants to play board games with him.

By the way, this is the BEST trailer i’ve seen in a long time. The perfect amount of information without giving anything away. Please don’t release more, this is perfection. I don;t need more trailers, I WILL STILL SEE YOUR MOVIE…I’m looking at you, Batman v Superman. Was Doomsday and Wonder Woman really necessary?

My Force Has Awoken – Review and Thoughts

StarWarsVIILogo

Saying I was excited to see this movie is like saying Kel had a slight affection for orange soda. I was hyped to the max. I got my IMAX tickets early, got to the theater with enough time to procure some snacks, sat my ass down in the oversized theater seat and slipped on the always stylish 3D glasses for some good ol’ fashion SciFi fun.

Here’s how I thought it was [Spoilers ahead]: Read the rest of this entry

Star Wars Episode VII to be Shot on Film

star-wars-vii-has-its-director-jj-abrams

Director J.J. Abrams, who recently signed on to direct the next installment in the Star Wars series, has shots his movies exclusively in film — and it turns out that won’t be changing any time soon. Boba Fett Fan Club reports that cinematographer Dan Mindel discussed the use of Kodak film on the set of Episode VII at an industry event in Los Angeles this week, a bold move more than a half-decade after 4K digital shooting first became practical. Episodes II and III were shot digitally, so Abrams’ decision is a return to the old school — he may be looking to preserve the look and feel of the original three movies.

Shooting images on a physical roll of film is starting to feel like a ludicrous concept to most of us, but until Hollywood’s hottest directors — the ones overseeing nine-figure budgets — write it off, it’s certainly got some life left. – The Verge

J.J. Abrams has never shot one of his films digitally, and he isn’t going to start with Star Wars either. J.J. also has a lot of other old school techniques that will help the Star Wars franchise develop a look and feel that will match the original trilogy rather than the prequels (all but episode one were shot digitally). I’m excited, and you should be too!
