Artificial Intelligence video essay

While some movies are immediately beloved and acclaimed, destined to be one of the films we talk about every year for decades, others come and go without much pomp and circumstance. One of those movies seems to have been A.I. Artificial Intelligence, the former Stanley Kubrick project that was completed by Steven Spielberg and released in 2001.

The film certainly wasn’t a dud, but it wasn’t universally acclaimed either. At the time, Rotten Tomatoes wasn’t used as a reference point for the quality of a movie, but retrospectively, it has a 73%, which is a decent score for such a dense, wandering sci-fi fairytale of sorts.

Over the years, as the film has gotten older, some critics and bloggers have revisited the film, finding it to even improve with age and reexamination. And that’s just what a new video has done, examining the film in a 15-minute visual study. Watch the Artificial Intelligence video essay after the jump! Read More »

Inside The Mind Of Jimmy Fallon

Despite the recent additions of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, a lot of the earlier attractions and experiences at Universal Studios Orlando feel dated. And it seems like the Universal Orlando mandate is to replace a lot of the older attractions with new experiences (I hope they decide to refurbish and update E.T. Adventure rather than replace it entirely). The latest rumor is that the Twister…Ride it Out attraction will be replaced with a ride that will take us inside the mind of Jimmy Fallon. So essentially they would be replacing an old attraction based on a 1990’s movie with an experience ride based on a 2015 late night television series. More details, after the jump.

Muppets TV show posters

Not long after the the video presentation that landed The Muppets a new show on ABC surfaced online after a debut at Comic-Con, we have a batch of new posters for the “more adult” TV comedy series that you’ll likely start seeing around major cities very soon.

Featuring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and Gonzo, each of the character posters have a clever little tagline, with Kermit’s taking the cake as the boldest and funniest tagline to promote a Muppets production I’ve ever heard.

The Rosie Project Director

Richard Linklater has already completed his follow-up to Boyhood — when your last feature took over a decade to make, pretty much any other turnaround seems quick. The movie has been called That’s What I’m Talking About, and also referred to as Everybody Wants Some, but the current status pegs it as Untitled Richard Linklater movie.

What we do know about the film is that it follows a young man as he arrives at college, and now the film has an April 2016 release date. In addition, Linklater is the top choice to direct The Rosie Project, which Sony has set up with Jennifer Lawrence set to star. Read More »
