Charles Burnett’s Road to Oscar Was Paved by Socially Conscious Storytelling

Charles Burnett’s Road to Oscar Was Paved by Socially Conscious Storytelling
Given the amount of recognition he’s received from film critics and the number of awards he’s received over the course of his career, it’s not surprising that Charles Burnett was selected to receive an honorary Academy Award — unless you’re Charles Burnett, that is, in which case you’re still struggling to process the news.

“I didn’t know what to think,” says Burnett. “It’s one of those things you never expect, so there was no way it was on my mind. It just took me by surprise. And I’m still surprised.”

Although he was born in Vicksburg, Miss., Burnett was only a few years old when his family moved to Watts, the Los Angeles neighborhood that would ultimately serve as the setting for his debut feature film, “Killer of Sheep.” Originally submitted as Burnett’s Master of Fine Arts thesis at UCLA in 1977, “Killer of Sheep” was selected for preservation in the

Simon Brew Aug 18, 2017

Looking for a film to watch, that you might not have considered before? Try some of these...

Sometimes, we figure, you come to a site like this just to find out about a film you didn’t know about. That you want recommendations of movies that you might not otherwise have uncovered. This list, then, has no theme, save that the films on it are really good, and didn’t get much of an audience first time around. That, or they seem to have been forgotten. It’s a real mix, but hopefully, there’s something on here that appeals..

Justice League Meets League of Their Own in Fan-Made Baseball Cards
There's no crying in baseball and there's certainly no crying in the Justice League. The female-led A League of Their Own has just been reimagined as A Justice League of Their Own in these awesome fan-made baseball cards to celebrate the baseball movie's 25th anniversary. As with any good mashup, one has to wonder aloud "why didn't I think of this?" and this is definitely one of those times because not only is it a solid pun, but Justice League and A League of Their Own work surprisingly well together.

Artist Kate Willaert via HalloweenCostumes.com has taken it upon herself to reimagine the world of A League of Their Own as if the female baseball players were members of the Justice League. The first poster shows Geena Davis's Dottie Hinson character as Wonder Woman. If there were to be a manager and a catcher to the Justice League

Hawaii Five-0 Season 7 Episode 23 Review: Prelude

There's nothing like a study of the McGarrett-Danny dynamic.

Hawaii Five-0 Season 7 Episode 23 shows how an old case of Danny's actually led to their meeting.

The best part: not a cargument to be seen throughout.

Actually, the episode even managed to focus on another old relationship of Danny's: his with Tanaka, his former captain.

First things first, Danny shouldn't become a carpenter when he retires. He was Everydad, unable to build a race-car bed because he refused to follow the directions.

Then the last person he expected showed up at his door: Tanaka, with whom he never really got along.

It was great that Danny got a second chance to solve his last case with Hpd, one that got away.

Also, it allowed him to exorcise his guilt about having a witness disappear after Danny failed to pick up his call because he couldn't stop bickering with his ex-wife Rachel.

If These Quotes Don't Get You Excited About Oitnb Season 5, Nothing Will

This week, Netflix released an intense new trailer and a release date for season five of Orange Is the New Black. Suffice it to say, excitement ahead of the next chapter is at an all-time high, especially when you think of all the burning questions we had after the fourth season finale. Unfortunately for us, there's still plenty of mystery surrounding what's coming up next. We have some behind-the-scenes snaps, sure, but new details pertaining to the next season have reduced to a trickle. So to puzzle out the plot, we've decided to collect all the bits of information we've gathered about season five. Taylor Schilling explained how things will heat up: "I think the stakes are higher in this season than they have been in a while," Schilling told E! News at the SAG Awards, "just by virtue of the compressed time and seeing people in compressed circumstance really raises the stakes.
