28 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

On 16th May 2014, Toho’s greatest monster will return to the big screen in an American reboot. With just 7 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.

Director: Roland Emmerich

Plot: A large lizard, mutated by radioactivity, arrives in New York.

It was only a matter of time. Hollywood itself had never been too fond of the ‘man in suit’ approach to cinematic monsters, but once technology caught up with the genre it was time to unleash Godzilla in the Us. On paper it made sense. A massive dinosaur-like creature destroys New York. With the success of Jurassic Park, surely bigger would easily be better. This was demonstrated in one of the film’s many great teasers as Godzilla »

The Unbelievable Number of Tesla Films to Be Made

20 February 2014 2:32 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

While we are talking about fiction, science fiction and non-fiction stories of little importance, many filmmakers are currently exploding with ideas to make films based on Nikola Tesla’s life and work. It all happens like a thunder, explosion from the heavens, with studios and independent filmmakers alike. They are actively seeking investors, crowd funding and sponsorships, partnerships with studios, while simultaneously doing the hard work of script writing, research, and casting.

It seems like the world is awakening, an angelus force is impacting our consciousness. Up to this point, history has been filtered in many ways, and most people believed the media and the government. But with such an activist-like attitude, that is going to change. As people, we are starting to think Tesla’s way, bringing awareness of using free energy, caring about the environment and looking at the future with his eyes. In this article, I will »

From composing for Spike Jonze (Being John MalkovichAdaptation., Where the Wild Things Are) to his work being the best parts of the Twilight saga, Burwell’s résumé is sporadic and unconventional, even for a man who makes film music for a living — it’s fitting, given his less-than-conventional roots as a cartoonist for The Harvard Lampoon and later as a vagrant New York punk rocker. Undoubtedly, Burwell’s become best known for the his collaborations with Joel and Ethan Coen. Last week, Sound on Sight ranked the films of the Coen Brothers, so what better way to take over The Big Score than with a similarly themed meditation on their work with Burwell? As much as the Coens’ filmography is defined by their trademark cynicism and wit, Burwell’s compositions are »
