The Terminator trailer is finally here. At least, it’s not the teaser of a trailer. And judging by what I have seen, T-100s are back. So are the naked men in empty stores. As someone who still loves the original 1984 Terminator, I cannot but feel a certain cringe in considering this new “reset”. I mean, the original story had its worth precisely because it was just that… original. I’m not rejecting it, I won’t take a vow never to see this new Terminator movie, but…you know, I need to process it. Maybe, I am terribly wrong and this whole premise of “resetting” the story will work just fine, but I guess, we’ll live and see.
Enough said…enjoy the trailer!
Such a happy day! The two Lana Del Rey songs that are going to be part of Tim Burton’s upcoming feature film “Big Eyes” are available on Soundcloud. Listen to them and be prepared to be amazed!
It’s been a while since I didn’t post any short films. And it’s time I corrected the error. Today I remembered one of my favourite short films ever – one that should definitely become a feature film – and this one should be shared with the world. And the actors, especially Miss Kelsey McNamee (some A class casting agency should contract this actress immediately) , are excellent. Continue reading “Mae and Ash” A Stunning Short Film
World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988. ( World AIDS Day)
One of the first means of raising AIDS awareness was of course, by means of television. In fact, I remember that the first time I’d heard about this disease was while I was watching “St. Elsewhere”, a medical series that was running on NBC. It was 1986 and AIDS was in full bloom, but very few dared to talk about. At least, not on the mainstream media. A year earlier, Rock Hudson had died, an event that shook to the core the idea that AIDS could happen only to …”them”, but still, AIDS and AIDS related topics were rarely featured on the conservative television screen of the 1980s. As I was saying, one of the first major characters that “came out” as HIV positive or AIDS stricken was Dr. Robert Caldwell (Mark Harmon), a womanizing doctor on “St. Elsewhere.” I imagine that at the time the showrunners had difficulties bringing onto the small screen such a character, especially since the audience associated AIDS only to homosexuals and drug addicts. Dr. Robert Caldwell was the first heterosexual character that had AIDS, the first leading man that died of AIDS, and thus marked an exceptional moment in television.

I so want to see this feature film, but no luck so far. There’s still no official premiere date. Maybe, maybe… it’s a good sign that the film is being promoted on Worldscreen magazines, but who knows. All I could find out (for now, at least), it’s a new promotional picture. Continue reading Josh Hartnett’s The Lovers gets new promotional picture
Finally, here comes the official teaser-trailer of “Far From the Madding Crowd”. Carrey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge and Michael Sheen star in the upcoming adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s masterpiece from 1874. I have no words to say how eager and excited I am to see this picture as Thomas Vinterberg, the uber-talented Danish director was part of this project as well. The premiere will be May, 1, 2015.
Will you see it?
I just came home after attending the premiere of Interstellar. I wish I were a poet to describe its beauty. I cried, I wondered, I rejoice in this film’s beauty. And I left the cinema room with a melancholy of all the things there are, there were and there will be. Go, go, go watch it!!! For movies like these was cinema invented. Continue reading Interstellar “Do not go gentle into that good night”
I went last night to see John Wick, and contrary to what I’d expected, I ended up having a lot of fun. Obviously, since Keanu is one of the actors I’m most fond of, I was prepared to turn a blind eye in case the movie sucked. It didn’t and I’ll tell you briefly why.
