    The 20 Best Film Scores of 2014

    It’s been a great year for film music. I say that as someone who had to endure the laughably dated qualities of Alberto Iglesias’ Exodus: Gods and Kings and had to swallow the pill that is Howard Shore‘s latter days Middle-earth music.

    Best Movie Posters of 2014 Part Two

    In my opinion a great movie poster has to grab my attention without the presence of a major hollywood star or other credits that appear on the sheet.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the End of ‘Interstellar’

    Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is science fiction, not space opera. It presents a not-so-far-away future in which space travel, while possible, is dangerous and uncertain.

    Disclaimer: I saw Interstellar on one of the smallest screens possible. Alright, I better revoke that statement.

I’m just rather positive I […] More

    A Look Into The Mind of Christopher Nolan

    Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, whose title alone in reference to the director’s name equals cinematic moxie, has the makings of a filmmaker putting his direction, vision and ideas to the test, where a running time of 169 minutes set in milieus that rocket from one plane of existence to the titular other — the interstellar, infinite […] More
