Latest Flicks / Re: TRON Legacy reviewed

Wow, all the sci-fi zealots here and most of you have never seen the orig. TRON? Amazing. Well, on second thought it's probably more about computers than sci-fi but still, when it premiered in what...'82 it was groundbreaking, cinematic-wise.

Feel The Funk / Re: The Devil and Kanye West

A co-worker turned me on to a dvd made by a religious group called salt of the earth where they chronicle all these video's and music clips where just about everyone you can think of in the biz is supposed to be down with this Satanic occult movement.

The big thing is the "devil horn" finger gesture that everyone is making...

Next is the thumb and index finger tip-to-tip with the other 3 fingers pointing straight is supposed to mean "666" but actually reminded me of Our Gang's Buck-Wheat "O-Tay!"

Another thing was that the Rock (roc-a-fella) diamond has now turned into the all seeing eye in the pyramid located on the rear of the dollar bill.

This dvd just went on to try and expose hidden messages in songs from Beyonce (Halo) to Neyo, to Maxwell.

The Gray Album (the hybrid mix album by DJ Danger mouse where he fused Jay-Z's Black Album with the Beatles White Album) on the track Lucifer when played in reverse it says "six-six-six...murder, murder, Jesus"

This thing just goes on and on, reaching very far at times to associate well known music, sports, and Hollywood celebrities with this movement.

Now myself, I just see this as the machine where things are done, theatrics and so on, to keep these personalities afloat in their respective dwindling markets.  But at the same time I find myself curious what, if anything, these hand gestures mean and what the accused have to say for their actions.  Before the dvd I had heard briefly about it while in my barbershop but those brothers dismissed it as if it was nothing so I assumed it was just one person but then I see the painstaking time some group took to go out of their way to compile all this footage and distribute an actual product.  Possibly it was a recruiting tool and I could see that but all the people it associated, I found myself saying "him/her too?" it was just that many individuals.

It's not really a big deal to me, what a person believes is their business, and I love hip-hop and r&b and I'll continue to listen to it, but I guess because I love it so that's what has me feeling as if I missed something.

Just as I was getting into TC seems everybody is getting out which means I may have too resort to going back to watch some of his earlier stuff I had no intention of ever watching.

I liked this though...I'm the Guy!

Producing / Re: Does anyone know what a producer does?
« on: April 03, 2010, 11:03:17 am »

The producer appears to be the bridge between the upper executives and the creative team.

This pretty accurate, the producer does a little of everything, solicits funds for the budget, helps out in casting choices, sometimes adds their two cents making a good film bad or vice versa...rarely though ;D

Well Alright!

I think you're ready to tackle She's Gotta Have It: The Remake.

Good job, cute kid. Just like moms though, never wanna get out the bed when their kid's being chased by a killer foot/hairy ankle!

Mamet is one of the best and this is great advice.

I am taking this and putting with my other notes I got from great screenwriters. 

This tid-bit of info would cost you about $225 at a "learn to write for the movies" panel in L.A. Posted up on HEF...priceless.

I agree, I love Scorsese and I've grown to like DiCaprio but this movie was an absolute mess, just all over the place.

So, can either of you tell me which it was...was he a cop or was it an elaborate game disguised as treatment?

Seems kinda ridiculous to have the same actor play multiple characters in a universe where all the people in it intersect at one time or another.

Kind of like DC asking Chris Bale to play Superman once he and Chris Nolan are done with Batman ???

I still think Dennis Quaid would be the best Cap.
