CS Retrospective Review: Pretty in Pink

CS Retrospective Review: Pretty in Pink Pretty in Pink tells the simple tale of a young, poor-ish girl who falls for a rich kid. Their worlds clash. All the poor-ish kids have hearts of gold. All the rich kids suck. And that’s the gist of John Hughes’ screenplay, which, compared to his other, more distinguished films about teenage angst — namely, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club and even Sixteen Candles — feels relatively tame; and surprisingly shallow.

How Netflix's 'Daybreak' went from a comic on an art professor's blog to a TV series pitched as 'Ferris Bueller in the apocalypse'

Brian Ralph, a sequential arts professor at Savannah College of Art and Design, posted pages of his comic "Daybreak" to his own blog "for fun" before it grew a fan base and was published as a graphic novel in 2011.

12 Years Later … Employment Law and Employment Law Blogs Continue to Grow Up

Has it really been a dozen years? Yes, it was 12 years ago today that I clicked “Publish” and put up my Welcome message to the Connecticut Employment Law Blog. At the time, I was the first platform to discuss employment law issues with a focus on Connecticut. Now, it seems like every lawfirm has taken its newsletters and slapped a “blog” label on it and voila! Lots of employment law blogs. What’s interesting about having a blog for so long though is that you really do start to build up a perspec...

De Blasio Is the Ferris Bueller of Democratic Presidential Candidates

The most rational response to the news that New York City mayor Bill de Blasio wants to be president is to ask, “Of what?”When informed that he wants to be president of the United States and not of, say, the local organic-hemp co-op, perhaps the next best response would be to take a page from the South and say, “Bless his heart.”One of the more charming things about de Blasio is his amiable lack of self-awareness. He seems to have no idea that he doesn’t impress anybody. The obliviousness is som...

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Director Jon Watts Wants to Avoid “Second Movie Bloat” [Interview]

Set visit interviews are always dependent on what’s happening that day, so when I was on the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home last August, it wasn’t too surprising to learn we wouldn’t have time to speak with director Jon Watts in person. He was deep into production at that point, trying to nail down a dialogue scene between several actors and allowing them to riff and try alternate lines in take after take to find the perfect tonal mixture for the scene. But Watts made time to jump on the phon...

10 Films That Break The Fourth Wall

10 Films That Break The Fourth Wall ‘Breaking the fourth wall’ is a term that is used in various forms of media. It’s the act of a character in a story acknowledging that it is, in fact, a story and that we, the audience, know this.

Famous filming locations in Chicago

Chicago is a beautiful city with towering buildings, world-class architecture, and iconic bridges and elevated train lines.

What 80s Films Can Teach Us About Modern Success

By Chris Clews Ah the 1980s. A magical time for creativity, invention, individuality and timeless movies that taught us valuable business lessons. Wait? What was that last one? When we think 80s movies, most of us visualize Clark Griswold and his family truckster or the teen angst of a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal.  Others may think of a gentle alien or a “banana in a tailpipe”. If you asked my Mom, she would just smile and simply say, “Patrick Swayze.” But just li...
