Richard Kelly Gone Girl
I’ve always loved hearing filmmakers discuss movies. We’ve often printed interviews where we ask filmmakers about their favorite films and the /Filmcast has tried to bring on directors to review the latest big screen movies. That hasn’t been as constant of a feature as David Chen and I originally planned, because as it turns out, people in the movie industry generally don’t like to publicly bas other filmmaker’s projects and we generally only got yeses from those directors who had a positive take on the film at hand. But I’ve always enjoyed hearing filmmakers discuss the movies they love and the current state of cinema.

Richard Kelly, writer/director of Donnie Darko, Southland Tales, and The Box, has always made his opinions and himself very accessible (actually, I almost wish he wouldn’t have explained the intentions and meanings behind his films, as they serve better as mysteries with no definitive answer). And this week, like many of us, he saw David Fincher‘s latest film Gone Girl and wrote a bit about it on his blog. Find out more about the Richard Kelly Gone Girl review, after the jump.

fastpass only

As you know, I’m a huge theme park fanatic and cover the Disney theme park beat here on the site. I’m a Disneyland Annual Passholder, and make trips to the park quite frequently. You may have also heard about the new FastPass+ system that Disney has implemented in Florida that allows resort guests to pre-book fast passes during their visit. It sounds like a great idea. Through the reservation system, guests choose the rides and morning, afternoon and evening times for the three attractions they’d like to experience during that day. This can be done many months in advance of a trip. But I have found there are many downsides to this system.

And now Disney is apparently doing a test in Orlando that could dramatically change how you experience their theme parks: Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios will be instituting FastPass-only access to the popular ride Toy Story Mania. What this means is that you can’t even wait hours in line for the ride, even if you wanted to experience the attraction that badly. Already a huge chunk of the Fast Pass slots is being reserved for guests of the resort who book months in advance. So after the morning batch of fast passes are gone, will theme park guests no longer be allowed to ride any of the popular E-ticket attractions?

Deadpool Movie Will Be Part Of The X-Men Universe

Deadpool X-Men universe

Last month, 20th Century Fox announced that they would finally make a movie based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool, set to hit theaters in Winter 2016. Even though Ryan Reynolds is likely set to reprise the role that he first played in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, some fans were still were confused if it would be a complete reboot of the character outside of the X-men movie universe or would be a continuation. But now its been confirmed that the Deadpool movie will be part of the X-Men cinematic universe, past and future. But how exactly will the Deadpool X-Men universe work in combination on the big screen?

Michael Bay quotes Pain and Gain

I love Michael Bay. I unironicly think he is a great artist. And from everything I’ve read, heard and even personally seen, I think he’s a hilarious person. He’s almost like an exagerated cartoon character version of what you might expect. Sometimes I think he plays into the persona, that his behavior can be an act.

For instance, when I was on the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Bay filmed a huge explosive action sequence as uninvited onlookers watched from nearby buildings and parking garages. They applauded after the take and Bay addressed the crowd with his megaphone: “You guys think you’re going to wait up there and be in my movie? You’re gonna get digitally erased!” Was he joking?  

Actor Rob Corddry has spent way more time with the filmmaker than I have at various junkets and set visits, and decided to compile a list of funny and crazy Michael Bay quotes during the filmmaking of Pain & Gain. Read that list and more after the jump.
