Mr. Duke Has Started To Watch The Series Game Of Thrones….Not That You Care….
What up yo. Nothing's been the same since we lost Stanley. This just in from Duke. You're welcome. Staircases to Nowhere: Making Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' from Howard Berry on Vimeo.
What up yo. There's a few movie stars left. Like, real movie stars. Movie stars don't have Twitter. They don't post on Facebook. They are mythic beings that live among us. Like Sean Connery. Like Bette Davis. Like Marilyn Monroe. Like Cary Grant. Like Steve McQueen. Like Madonna (yea I know. Shut up). Like George Clooney. Like Angelina Jolie. Something about Angie man. Everytime a new trailer comes out for this film, I post it. Not because I'm a Disney fan. Not because I even want to see it. But because Angie tears it up in every damn frame. Duke […]
This is the film…This Is "Joker Rising"
What up yo. I have about as much desire to see this film as I did "Batman And Robin". I didn't want to see one frame of that film. C.G.I. I don't think it's convincing , I don't think it's ready for prime time yet, I feel like filmmakers want us to believe it because it's saving them money and because they're able to do things they couldn't do in the physical realm...but unless it's James Cameron or Peter Jackson...I don't like it. I don't buy it. It doesn't look good. It's ruining cinema. Give me some old school, "The […]

What up yo. So Duke has been riding me about watching this trailer. He sent it to me 5 days ago and since then has laid down suppressing fire of phone calls emails and text messages demanding I watch it. I'm not exaggerating. I gave in 20 mins ago and watched this trailer. Holy shit. This. Looks. Like. Bad. Fucking. Ass. Ambitious. Original. High. Octane. Diesel. Fuel. Drenched. Film. Making. My friend Duke.
Congrats to the winners, condolences to those who didn't win. They shouldn't be too discouraged. The Oscars are fixed. Any award show where the winner stands to profit millions of dollars is corruptible. The Academy Award has the distinction of being the crème de la crème of film awards. However more often than not, film excellence is not rewarded...playing the Hollywood game is. The truly innovative films, film makers actors and actresses who don't play by the rules, who prove to be too radical minded to be considered safe and sound representatives of the billion dollar empire that is Hollywood... […]
What up yo. I was catching up on a few new trailers last night & I went on over to HD-Trailers.net, which I consider to be the best source for high definition trailers on the net, & I caught this trailer. It rocked my face off. The film is called "Stalingrad". It's a Russian film, made on a budget of $30 mill, shot digitally (5K source) for IMAX 3D...the visuals look absolutely gorgeous. $30 mill. Dude. Michael Bay couldn't shoot this exact footage for $150 mill, and the film makers here made it work. Now, I haven't seen the film...I […]
David O. Russell creates another ensemble piece that has magic in every corner. The script is stellar , the cast is a knock out & the performances from Bale, Cooper, Lawrence and Adams are fantastic.
I could go off here for a while about the beauty of Anton's eye, how he paints with images, how the black and white photography in this film shot by cinematographer Martin Ruhe is gorgeous and the entire film looked like silk to me, but I'm sitting in a parking lot banging this out on my iPad and I need to get back home. But listen. I didn't know much about Joy Division before watching this film. Then as it progressed, and because I have this crush on all things Great Britain (I'm going home to my British SwePea), I […]

The Purge: Anarchy | Trailer & Art
Grease the film musical starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John was a blockbuster in the theaters in 1978, and is simply iconic 40 years later. A feat very few films an claim.
"YOU GOTTA KNOW THE TERRITORY" "LOOK! WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK!" What up yo. I used to watch this one with my Mom. I had forgotten the music, why I liked it, then I watched a few days ago...and watching the opening number "Rock Island" (they did a great job touching this BluRay up. Video & Sound) hurled me backwards in time to 1981, being a kid, sitting with Mom and watching this...memories I always appreciate. The opening number to me is gasoline. High octane. Listening to them perform this...watching them perform this...me […]
This is from the almighty Cameron Crowes website, "The Uncool" on Phillip Seymour Hoffmans performance of the midnight phone call scene in his autobiographical film "Almost Famous". PSH "My original take on this scene was a loud, late night pronouncement from Lester Bangs. A call to arms. In Phil’s hands it became something different. A scene about quiet truths shared between two guys, both at the crossroads, both hurting, and both up too late. It became the soul of the movie. In between takes, Hoffman spoke to no one. He listened only to his headset, only to the words of […]
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER | TRAILER 2
Fuck. Goddamn it man.... what a talent I'm at a loss for words. He was a fine actor. I don't know what he had to do to get those performances out... I don't know how it happened. I just read some trade magazine post that he only had 7 days if filming left on Hunger Games To which I say Fuck off. Who cares about footage. About a film. They will deal with it. Just like the fast and furious movies when Paul Walker passed. I didn't want to hear about the future of those films. These are men. […]
