‘We Can Be Heroes’ Featurette: How Robert Rodriguez Created the Visual Effects in His Kid Superhero Film

Say what you will about the films of Robert Rodriguez, which have varied in quality pretty drastically since El Mariachi put him on the map in the early 1990s, but the guy obviously has a boundless passion for making movies. He also has a passion for pulling back the curtain to reveal the process of filmmaking, which results in the experience being demystified and younger generations being presented with practical knowledge they may not have been able to easily access otherwise. Netflix recentl...

Year-in-Review: 2020

We’re almost at the end of a very wild year. Thankfully time stops for nobody, not even for a boss-level, once in a lifetime year that is 2020. It certainly didn’t stand still for me, else I would have published my 2018 and 2019 review posts! For many people in the EN speaking world, everyday has been replaced by a new reality. Grappling with Anime blogging seems not only quaint but completely ineffective today as a way to communicate. That said, it’s never only, or mostly, about communicati...

Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Movie Casts Kelvin Harrison Jr. as Blues Guitar Legend B.B. King

Kelvin Harrison Jr., who recently played Black Panther activist Fred Hampton in Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7, will soon play another larger than life figure in a new movie. Harrison has been cast as blues icon B.B. King in Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann‘s movie about Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll. Get the details below. Hey, remember Baz Luhrmann? He’s only directed three feature films in the past twenty years (and one big Netflix show that’s since been canceled), s...

‘Nomadland’ Oscar Nominations Could Be a First in Academy Award History

Believe it or not, a woman has never been nominated for Best Actress and Best Picture (via being a producer) in the same exact year. That very well might be about to change, though – with Nomadland. Star Frances McDormand is also a producer on the Chloé Zhao-directed flick, and almost everyone who tracks the Oscars seems to think she’s a shoo-in for Best Actress and that the film will surely get a Best Picture nod. Nomadland is one of the year’s best movies. And Frances McDormand is there in...

Here’s Why ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Doesn’t Have Diana Using Her Sword or Shield

In the midst of all the tomfoolery and shenanigans taking place during Wonder Woman 1984, I totally missed the fact that Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman never once uses her iconic shield or sword – two things she used in the first film. She uses her magical lasso a lot, but the shield/sword combo never makes an appearance. Like all things in movies, this was a deliberate choice, and star Gal Gadot has revealed why the Patty Jenkins-directed sequel nixed Wonder Woman’s weapons. As I watched Wonder W...

Unless you’re a hardcore animation fan, you probably don’t know the name Tom Kane, but there’s a very good chance you’ve heard his voice sometime over the past 25 years.

Promising Young Woman Review – Mulligan Destroys The World Like It Was ’09 All Over Again

The narrative structure of Promising Young Woman is a wonderful lie that, in a way becoming its own meta-metaphor, establishes a promising future that gets destroyed. It’s a story built on small moments that reverse engineer a character who finds herself in a place that is difficult to understand and appreciate with, as it turns out, the ultimate goal of simply proving that the task is impossible. Cassandra (Carey Mulligan) is a troubled woman when we meet her and the film leaves us to piece ...

2020 Was, Against All Odds, the Year of the “Nice” Movie

Let’s be honest: 2020 was a bad year. Bad for the world, bad for the economy, and bad for the soul. Not to even mention the movie industry, which suffered blows from theater closings and studio delays. Entertainment seemed to be the last thing on people’s minds, and yet, entertainment is what many people turned to in the long months of lockdown. Comfort television became consumed as frequently as comfort food, and many people — after at first feeding into their paranoia with early viewings of C...

Mark Hamill Thanks Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni For His Mandalorian Cameo

Mark Hamill Thanks Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni For His Mandalorian Cameo After The Rise of Skywalker, no one expected Mark Hamill to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker again. Regardless, The Mandalorian season 2 finale brought Hamill back to Star Wars in a big way. Thanks to the magic of CGI, young Luke saved the day and took custody of Grogu. It also gave fans a rare chance to see Jedi Master Luke in his prime, as he tore through Dark Troopers on his way to the bridge. ...

Favorite Books Read In 2020

Chris Pine Knows the Plot of Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron

Chris Pine Knows the Plot of Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron In a recent interview, Chris Pine told Collider that his Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins revealed the plot of her upcoming Star Wars film, Rogue Squadron, and the actor thought it was “really great.” “I had spoken to her about, not my involvement, but the story.

Looking Back: Ali Benzekri's 'Greeting to 2020's Cinema' Video Recap

"Who cares about what they think? This is about me. This is about my life. This is me." As 2020 comes to an end, looking back at this year there's been so much hardship, so many challenges, so much tragedy, so much upheaval, it's tough to think about movies. But despite all of these challenges, movies were still there. Not only did film festivals continue, but distributors found a way to release new films any way they could - in "virtual cinemas", on VOD, in drive-ins, in backyards, on strea...
