Rising Above the Call

Red Tails

Finally the epic story of the Tuskegee Airmen will be told in the vivid light that it deserves.  The Men who fought and died in the name of sacrifice and patriotism would be Legend, if it were not true; but this actually happened, and courage like this was shown on more than one day, and by more than one man.  The trailer seems to be doing justice to the absolutely stunning story of the Men who not only wanted to serve their country, but also demanded to do so.  Take a look, and see if this might be not only a story worth telling, but also on a much less important note, a redemption for Lucasarts Studios.

Bored of Being Board?

Nothing says, "EPIC FAILURE AHEAD!" more than an entire movie based on a board game.  Because as you all know the, "Dungeons and Dragons" surely went over well.  (If you even remember that title without IMDB to confirm that such an atrocity ever existed...then welcome to the nerdy-zone...population, you and I.)

But hey, I mean, if you attach Liam Neeson in the role of a predictable plotline that is COMPLETELY given away by this trailer.  And make sure that there is a stupid love story somewhere in there....then either you have a historical film...or a gigantic FLOP!

Take a look at what some people have money for, and despair.

Restless for Originality

Here is one that is slowly but surely gaining my attention. The film is titled "Restless" and seems to try and have ties to Greek Theater themes as well as being up to date in order to connect with people in modern society. See if you can draw out the parallels as you watch the trailer for this interesting movie.

The Dark Knight Rises Teaser 01

Here's an interesting one

This movie is a sure-in for cult classic fame.  This film takes place during the civil war in Spain.  The story seems to revolve around a clown in the circus who gets wrapped up in the other characters and drama ensues.   The cinematography in this trailer is makes me really want to dive into the movie already and immerse myself in the strange vision of the writers / director.

A Fresh Take on a Classic

Everyone knows the story of the Prince and the Pauper.  An American Classic by none other than Mark Twain.  It caused our childish imaginations to run with the idea of what it would be like to be a prince just even for a little while.  Would you do good things or bad things with you power?

But the movie "The Devil's Double" takes that same approach, only the twist is, it for yourselves.  After all, the intention of the blog is to inspire conversation and excitement.   So take a look and make sure to tell us all if you think that it's going to be fresh enough to be meaningful, or is this the same story as before with no real changes.

One Worth Noting

I stumbled across this film (ouch) when perusing IMDB.  And while the base premise for the movie might feel familiar...I believe that this movie will shine when the protagonist is in self-exile and begins building himself up again.  I do think that the amount of character development will allow the audience to share in his deeply portrayed emotions.

The Original title for this film is "L'homme qui voulait vivre sa vie"  which translates to "The Man Who Wanted To Live His Life"   But the international title is simply "The Big Picture".   "The Big Picture" was screened at the COLCOA film festival in the U.S. in the month of April.  No information yet as to it's release on portable formats, but I advise you to keep a lookout for this one, as I am pretty sure you will enjoy it.
