Plenty of people have been praising Mad Max: Fury Road over and over again. Every chance we get to write about the film, we’re throwing kudos to director George Miller for crafting what could very well end up being the best action movie of the year, maybe even the decade. But let’s not forget that the original Mad Max franchise was a rather impressive achievement.
A new supercut has come along taking a look at one key element of the first three Mad Max films: POV shots. Director George Miller effectively and seamlessly uses POV shots to put the audience right in the middle of the action without it ever feeling like a gimmick. It’s just one of the many ways Miller has proven that he’s a master behind the camera.

Shortly after The Avengers: Age of Ultron hit theaters, there was already a video running through a slew of easter eggs from the film, moments that reference the comic books and the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe. And since the buzz of the superhero sequel began to overshadow the previous month’s release of the Netflix series adaptation of Daredevil, we figured now was a good time to revisit all the goodies that Marvel Studios’ second television series had to offer.

Briefly: Well, folks, the day is finally here. A little bit more than a year after we first shot a concert film at the Moore Theatre with Stephen Tobolowsky, the World Premiere of The Primary Instinct is finally upon us. Tomorrow, all the people who backed us on Kickstarter will get the opportunity to watch the film with us when it plays at the Seattle International Film Festival.
But there’s good news for those who live near the Seattle area as well: You can still buy a ticket to see the film in person! The Primary Instinct will play at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Capitol Hill for two showings: Friday at 9:45 PM, and Saturday at noon. Stephen and I will both be there to do a Q&As afterwards.
For those who won’t be able to be there and are still interested in seeing the film: stay tuned! We’ll have more exciting news about the film in the near future. In the meantime, I hope you’ll consider joining us in person. If you do, be sure to say hi. And for those who have been with us every step of the way on this journey, right from the very beginning: Thank you, so so much.

Rick Baker has spent decades creating stunning creature makeup and animatronic visual effects. He created work for Star Wars, did the landmark werewolf effects for An American Werewolf in London and the transformation in Thriller, and also worked on films such as The Rocketeer, Gremlins 2, Men in Black, Ed Wood, and the Planet of the Apes remake. He even did alien designs for Steven Spielberg’s aborted film Night Skies.
Now, at age 64, with CG effects and shrinking budgets and production timelines pushing aside opportunities for the work he likes to do, Rick Baker is preparing for his retirement. Read More »

I love the fact that Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and their Key & Peele director Peter Atencio are making a movie called Keanu. Even more, I love that it has nothing to do with Keanu Reeves. What else would anyone associate with the name Keanu?
The film is a comedy (obviously), and they’re giving us some idea of what to expect just from that title choice. Oh, and the movie is about a cat. And now Will Forte, who made it through the first season of The Last Man on Earth and has a second season to look forward to, has joined the expanding cast of the film. Read More »
Director Cameron Crowe returns to theaters this weekend with Aloha, starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, and Rachel McAdams.

The first eight minutes of the film are now online, and the credits sequence introduces a melange of concepts, from the integration of Hawaii to the United States, to the rise and fall of the US space program.
Watch the Aloha opening below, featuring that credits sequence and the first big sequence establishing several of the film’s primary characters. Read More »
