Thrill Ride trailer lives up to the hype of its name

Cinema loves movies that feature children. It is a more recent example but numerous films, from Hocus Pocus to The Monster Squad, speak to the pull of this tradition. Thrill Ride promises to be a great addition and is the debut feature of Mason’s Movies.

Mixing a treasure hunt set at an amusement park with a legend about a sea witch, Thrill Ride appeals to all ages and a trailer can be seen below…

Fifty percent of every dollar Thrill Ride makes will go to The Mason Parrish Foundation – which is a 501(c)3 that funds pediatric brain tumor research and provides wheelchair accessible vans for families with children who are suffering from catastrophic illness.

Cinema Eye Honors Turn 10: How This Oscar-Season Protest Became a Cozy Documentary Club

The Oscars can have its annual celebrity luncheon. This week, several documentarians celebrated the Cinema Eye Honors with an after-hours field trip to the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Conceived in 2008 as a bid to broaden awareness for documentary achievements, the Cinema Eyes highlight a dozen categories that range from best director to best cinematography to graphic design. However, while it began as a tonic to the five-nominee limitations that circumscribe the Oscars, the Cinema Eyes have evolved into an idiosyncratic celebration all its own. Although the awards are Wednesday night at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York, the ceremony is now only the culmination of a full week of programming that includes three days of activities.

“It’s kind of like senior skip week,” said co-founder and filmmaker Aj Schnack, catching his breath on Monday night before delivering a speech to the filmmakers in attendance. “Yes,

Michael Snydel’s Top 10 Films of 2016

The dominant conversation about film in 2016 was its impending end. Just about every sphere of the cinematic world from filmmakers to established critics to loudmouth pundits had a doomsday proclamation about film, conflating national anxiety and middling blockbusters with far-flung conclusions. With the year in the books, it’s pretty easy to disagree with them. And I say that even as I diverge with public opinion on some of the biggest films of the year – Jackie, La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester By the Sea, etc.

But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that my favorite experiences with film this year were less my most-anticipated than the ones that defied easy description. They weren’t always my favorites but films like The Love Witch, Lemonade, Operation Avalanche, Kate Plays Christine, and Aferim! were welcome reminders of the myriad ways that film could feel strange and new – and in
