Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance

1 July 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sure, it would be easy to rattle off all sorts of movie titles that feature the name of colors. Go ahead and knock yourself out: The Pink Panther, Red Dawn, Yellow Submarine, Purple Rain, Blue Velvet, Goldfinger, etc. The listing seems rather endless. However, can one come up with color-contained movie titles that also carry some messaging of substance and contemplation?  Maybe films such as Fried Green Tomatoes or Steel Magnolias are color-coated entries that carries some relevance in its messaging about feminine empowerment for instance. In Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance let us look are the leading selections that have both color (in title) and substance (in thematic forethought) attached to its skin. Hey, maybe one can make a case for Pink Flamingos but The Blue Lagoon might be stretching things a bit…don’t you think? The Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color »

Forget the Soap…12 Years A Slave Pulls Five Finger Discount at the 2014 Indie Spirit Awards

1 March 2014 4:20 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave pulled a five finger discount at the 2014 Indie Spirit Awards grabbing hardware in the Best Feature, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress and Best Cinematography categories. Apart from the larceny in the Best Doc category, the winners in the above mention category (excluding Bobbitt’s work) and the double win pairing of Leto and McConaughey along with Cate Blanchett’s perf win in Blue Jasmine will likely repeat itself less than 24 hours later at tomorrow’s Academy Awards celebrations obviously begging many to ponder the following: who needs the 86th Academy Awards when we have the Indie Spirit Awards? While today’s most pleasurable wins come from the truly indie kudos for Best First Feature (Ryan Coogler for Frutivale Station) the John Cassavetes award for Chad Hartigan’s This is Martin Bonner, and the Piaget Producers Award to Ain’t Them Bodies Saints »

20 February 2014 4:17 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

One of the highlights of this year's Pan African Film Festival was an evening hosted by actor and producer Isaiah Washington and sponsored by Bulleit Bourbon. Washington, who had three projects in the festival this year (Patrik-Ian Polk's Blackbird, Alexandre MoorsBlue Caprice and Stacey Muhammad's For Colored Boys) invited a small group of writers to dinner, where he discussed his life and career and what he looks to accomplish next.

Isaiah Washington, Mo’Nique, Orlando Jones, Danielle Watts Board Choice Skinner's 'We Are Family'

13 February 2014 4:30 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

After collaborating on Patrik-Ian Polk's Blackbird, Isaiah Washington and Mo’Nique will pair up again, to star in another indie drama by another black filmmaker, Choice Skinner, titled We Are Family. You have to appreciate Washington's motivations over the last couple of years or so, attaching himself to smaller, what would be deemed *riskier* independent movies, written and directed by black filmmakers (mostly) who, otherwise, may not have access to an actor of his abilities and name recognition - from Russ Parr to Tony Abulu, to Matthew Cherry, Patrik-Ian Polk, and now Choice Skinner.  Of course, I can't leave out his quietly-unnerving performance in Alexandre Moors' Blue »
