Dinotasia by EdwardHavens
November 5th, 2012
Dinosaurs have fascinated mankind for millennia. We as a people have a seemingly voracious appetite for all things dinosaur, especially after John Ostrom’s works about the Deinonychus Antirrhopus became public in the mid-1960s. And before we take another journey back to "Jurassic Park" next year, we have the animated anthology movie "Dinotasia" to keep us engaged.
Ron Howard: 50 Years in Film by CarrieSpecht

This original TCM documentary by film historian and author Richard Schickel is a well documented tale of a child actor coming of age before our very eyes, transforming into filmmaker and ultimately auteur, as acclaimed filmmaker Ron Howard recounts his remarkable career from child star to Academy Award-winning director.

In the 12 years since James Cameron last directed a feature film (a little art-house number called "Titanic," heard of it?), much has changed in the growing field of special effects.

Bad News Bears, The by EdwardHavens
December 20th, 2004
I am personally against remakes, on general principles. The vast majority of remakes come from good films that weren’t asking to be redone, and the new films are virtual carbon copies of the originals.
The Talking Heads by EdwardHavens
March 27th, 2006
They weren’t the most influential band to come out of the New York City punk and new wave scene that exploded out of CBGB’s in the mid 1970s. That would have been The Ramones. Nor were they the most commercially successful. That title would go to Blondie.

“Scene It”: A Rather Trivial Movie Trivia Game by CarrieSpecht
January 24th, 2007
If you’ve lately spent any time in a toy store, you’ve no doubt noted the highly promoted “Scene It” series of movie trivia games. If you’re a novice at movie trivia, then you may enjoy this simplistic turn at an interactive game that incorporates the use of DVD clips with the traditional board game. However, if you have even the most remote knowledge of all things movies, you’ll more likely be bored than entertained.
Unsigned Hype by CarrieSpecht
October 7th, 2009
Booker T. Mattison's first novel, "Unsigned Hype," is a terrifically engaging book, with its positive representation of a world that is often degraded and exploited, its no wonder it is drawing some serious consideration from movie producers.
