Today in Movie Culture: Spider-Man Vs. Deadpool, Silent Cut of 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and More

28 August 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:   Cosplay of the Day: Spider-Man and Deadpool had a little dance-off on a rooftop in L.A. (via Fashionably Geek):   Fan Art of the Day: Graphic designer Shawn Hall made a parody of a recent Batgirl comic book cover instead featuring Kate McKinnon's character in the Ghostbusters reboot and some ladies from the original, too. Paul Feig graciously retweeted it (via Twitter).    Trailer Redo of the Day: Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was heavily influenced by Buster Keaton's The General, so it makes sense to imagine his latest as a black and white silent film (via Live for Films):   Filmmaker in Focus: Speaking of George Miller, here's...

Above And Below director Nicolas Steiner with Swiss Consul Thomas Schneider in New York Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg of Dogme fame, Roy Andersson, Baltasar Kormákur, Dagur Kári's Virgin Mountain, Pablo Larrain's El Club, Buster Keaton's The General, The Rescuers' albatross, The Lion King, over lunch at Café Select in Nolita, where a scene from Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was filmed, had to compete with cows fighting as topic of conversation.

In his anthropological documentary, Above And Below, Nicolas Steiner tells a story about five people surviving this world in their own way - in the sewers underneath Las Vegas, Nevada, in the California desert, and in a Utah facility that prepares for a mission to Mars. Over Swiss fare, Nicolas told me about the mountainous region he comes from and how that relates to the desert, a childhood cinema trauma, »

Wild, Dangerous, Imperfect Grandeur: 11 Double Features About America

2 July 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The United States is “my country, right or wrong,” of course, and I consider myself a patriotic person, but I’ve never felt that patriotism meant blind fealty to the idea of America’s rightful dominance over global politics or culture, and certainly not to its alleged preferred status on God’s short list of favored nations, or that allegiance to said country was a license to justify or rationalize every instance of misguided, foolish, narrow-minded domestic or foreign policy.

And now more than ever we seem to be living in a country poised at the edge of some sort of transition, with all the attendant tension and conflict and intense conviction that can be expected on either side of the chasm that prevents us from a true state of national togetherness. Just last week we celebrated a Supreme Court decision that finally offered legality (and legal protection) to the »

Watch: Buster Keaton's 'The General' Rages In 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Mashup

2 June 2015 10:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Video mashups tend to be a dime a dozen these days. Everyday it seems like someone on the internet has come up with a clever way to combine seemingly disparate music and/or images together which only occasionally leads to interesting results. That’s certainly the case with the video below, which takes an action-packed sequence from the classic 1926 Buster Keaton comedy “The General” and places a portion of the “Mad Max: Fury Road” soundtrack in the background. Read More: Review: "George Miller's 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Starring Charlize Theron & Tom Hardy   Since Junkie Xl’s soundtrack is particularly designed to coincide with George Miller’s wild car chase sequences in 'Fury Road,' it’s not surprising to find that the music blends well with the dangerous stunts Keaton performed on a moving train in his silent-era classic. It places the sequence in an entirely different »

Beyond Narrative: The Future of the Feature Film

12 February 2015 12:01 PM, PST | blogs.suntimes.com/ebert | See recent Roger Ebert's Blog news »

Editor's Note: RogerEbert.com is proud to reprint Roger Ebert's 1978 entry from the Encyclopedia Britannica publication "The Great Ideas Today," part of "The Great Books of the Western World." Reprinted with permission from The Great Ideas Today ©1978 Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.

It's a measure of how completely the Internet has transformed communication that I need to explain, for the benefit of some younger readers, what encyclopedias were: bound editions summing up all available knowledge, delivered to one's home in handsome bound editions. The "Great Books" series zeroed in on books about history, poetry, natural science, math and other fields of study; the "Great Ideas" series was meant to tie all the ideas together, and that was the mission given to Roger when he undertook this piece about film.

Given the venue he was writing for, it's probably wisest to look at Roger's long, wide-ranging piece as a snapshot of the »
