Delorean 88mph

In a movie that involves time travel and a climax that involves a car harnessing the power of lightning at the exact second that it hits, we don’t usually look too hard at the scientific accuracy. Well when it comes to Back to the Future, BullittRide did the math and it turns out that Marty McFly wouldn’t have even been able to go back in time in the first place because the Twin Pines Mall would not have enough room to allow the Delorean time machine to get up to the necessary 88 miles per hour.

Cameron Crowe Aloha Troubles

This morning, I retweeted a tweet from Amy Kaufman from the Los Angeles Times noting that the all-media screening of Cameron Crowe’s Aloha is set for May 26th, reviews are embargoed until May 28th in the afternoon pacific time, with the movie being released nationwide less than a day later on May 29th. At first glance, it doesn’t seem like a good sign for a movie from a filmmaker who is known to create audience pleasing dramedies. But is it fair to judge a movie based on a studio’s apparent lack of faith in a movie?

I explore the reported trouble behind Aloha and try to explore this question, after the jump.

Netflix Between

A quarantine is now in effect: Netflix has released the trailer for their next original series Between from 24 producer Jon Cassar, starring Jennette McCurdy (iCarly). The series has an interesting premise: it takes place in “a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under.” If this were a feature film I would be worried that its just another young adult novel adaptation but the trailer looks more interesting than many of those movies. Watch the Netflix Between trailer emebedded after the jump and leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Simpsons Springfield Grand Opening Photos

Last night we were invited to “A Taste of Springfield” neighborhood block party celebrating the grand opening of the iconic world of Springfield, the hometown of America’s favorite family, The Simpsons, at Universal Studios Hollywood. The all-new themed environment surrounds The Simpsons Ride, placing park guests inside of the fictional town/city from the long-running animated series. And with 26 seasons of content to build out this world, Universal designers had a lot to pick and choose from.

After the jump you can see some photos from the grand opening event, as well as a look at the food from all the new resturants, including Duff Brewery, Moe’s Tavern, Lard Lad Donuts, Krusty Burger, Cletus’ Chicken Shack and Phineas Q. Butterfat’s Ice Cream Parlour.

The Muppets TV Trailer

In April we learned that ABC was considering a new Muppet television series that would explore their personal lives in an Office-style Mockumentary. And last week it was revealed that the pilot would be backed up to series which means we’ll be getting a new Muppet show on primetime television. I’m a huge Muppets fanboy but I’ll admit I was skeptical when the news of this new show hit. But ABC has now released a trailer for The Muppets and I’m now a believer. Watch The Muppets tv trailer embedded after the jump.

peter sciretta feature film

My name is Peter Sciretta, you probably know me as the creator and editor of the movie blog /Film, aka slashfilm.com. What you probably didn’t know is that I once directed an independent feature film. Before I started writing about movies, I wanted to make movies. Its a part of my life I have rarely talked about, and I thought now was a good time to share the story.

I’m sharing this story with you now because when I posted a Throwback Thursday photo last week of me on set, many followers/readers had questions and wanted to know more. So here it is the quick details on the feature film I co-directed in 2002, along with a trailer for the film, which will never be released.
