Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. With the release of Interstellar this week, let’s examine the trademark style and calling signs of Christopher Nolan as director.

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

Nolan knew he wanted to be a filmmaker from a young age. He attended college to pursue this goal and eventually became the president of the local film society. While in charge of the film society, he screened films and used the proceeds to make short films, which were well received by his peers and the faculty. After college, Nolan couldn’t find any work and decided to raise funds to create a feature length film by himself. The result of that effort was Following (1998), which won several awards at festivals and impressed critics. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2007

4 February 2014 8:21 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 6 Feb 2014 - 06:08

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2007, and another 25 overlooked gems...

For some reason, the number three was a common factor in several blockbuster movies of 2007. The third film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series (At World's End) dominated the box office, Spider-Man 3 marked Sam Raimi's last entry as director in the series, while Mike Myers went for a hat trick of hits with Shrek The Third.

I Am Legend was the third and most financially successful attempt to bring Richard Matheson's classic novel to the big screen, Rush Hour 3 marked Jackie Chan's last action pairing with Chris Tucker, while Zack Snyder's musky sword-swinger 300 was notable for having the number three in the title.

Iffy attempts at numerology aside, 2007 was also a superb for year for movies in general - particularly underappreciated ones, »
