The Shape of Water Guillermo del Toro cameo

Directors have been making cameos in their own movies since the early days of cinema, so it’s appropriate that The Shape of Water – which is at least partially a throwback to classic Hollywood – would include a cameo from its own filmmaker as well. It also seems appropriate that an iconoclast director like Guillermo del Toro wouldn’t have a traditional cameo in his movie; even if you were straining your eyes to look for him, you’d never see del Toro’s face on screen during the entire run time. That’s because he appears in a more unconventional cameo, aiding actor Doug Jones in bringing his exotic fish-man creature to life.

Unbanned trailer

In the 1980s, it may have been difficult for some to understand how owning a pair of Air Jordans “gave a voice to the voiceless.” But the shoes proved to be the Big Bang of sneaker culture, which subsequently exploded and crossed over with multiple aspects of popular culture: sports, fashion, music, and more. Now a new documentary called Unbanned: The Legend of AJ1 is here to tell the tale, featuring interviews with Michael Jordan, Michael B. Jordan, Spike Lee, Lena Waithe, Anthony Anderson, DJ Khaled, and many more.

The first Unbanned trailer debuted during the NBA All-Star Weekend, and you can check it out below. Read More »

Four Great Marvel Movie Audio Commentaries

Marvel commentaries

Marvel has been a giant machine conquering the global box-office ever since they kicked down Hollywood’s door a decade ago with Iron Man. In less than 10 years, Marvel President Kevin Feige and all involved made the Marvel logo mean something to audiences everywhere. It’s quite an extraordinary feat, one that couldn’t have been pulled off without the long, long list of great talent they’ve hired. That talent also produces some fun audio commentaries.

Marvel’s finest movies, like this weekend’s Black Panther, have struck a balance between art and commerce, and that’s a running theme throughout the commentaries for Marvel’s movies: trying to make a popcorn movie with taste, substance, and above all, character. There’s very little talk of special effects, as most of the conversations revolve around character, but maybe that’s not surprising since the Disney-owned studio has always maintained the characters are the stars of these movies. Years of work went into getting these superheroes right, which you can hear all about in some of the Marvel commentaries recommended below.
