Examining the Christopher Nolan backlash

23 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another Oscars season, and Christopher Nolan is overlooked again. With Interstellar getting a mixed reaction, we look at the Nolan backlash.

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Interstellar.

Watch: A Video Essay on Robert Altman’s TV Work

19 February 2015 8:09 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Robert Altman’s formative years working in episodic television are examined by Violet Lucca in this Film Comment video essay.

After finding his autuerist signature on Bonanza! and examining one of his most famous contributions to Combat!, the essay concludes with a look at Altman’s Bus Stop episode “A Lion Walks Among Us,” controversial enough amongst widespread hysteria about juvenile delinquency and violence on TV to merit Congressional questioning of ABC president Oliver Treyz. »

Rip Edward Herrmann

2 January 2015 7:25 PM, PST | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

A lengthy run on the popular Gilmore Girls may be what Herrmann is best remembered for but his body of work is lengthy and admirable. Included on his ledger are numerous horror films including the classic and muchbeloved Lost Boys. The reboot of The Town That Dreaded Sundown My Boyfriends Back Here Comes the Munsters a turn on Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Death Valley are just a few other genre standouts on his ledger. »
