Video: John August Teaches You How To Write Movies

28 January 2015 10:46 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

When it comes to teaching people how to write screenplays, John August is one of the most valuable resources aspiring writers have available to them. The writer of Go, Big Fish, and tons of other films has a great podcast and a website dedicated to talking about screenwriting and pointing people in the right direction with tips and tricks from someone who's been in the Hollywood system for many years.

The Academy has apparently taken notice of the fact that August is an excellent teacher, because they recently released (via /Film) a video of August that was filmed in his office in which the writer basically lays out his process for writing a movie. It's mostly basic stuff, so nothing will go over your head and you won't get lost in any technical jargon. But maybe it'll be enough to inspire some writers out there to take a fresh look »

Scott Davis on films to look out for at Sundance 2015…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when many of Hollywood’s big hitters gather together to be awarded a variety of different prices on the Awards circuit, culminating with the 87th Academy Awards on February 22nd. But on Thursday weekend in west USA (namely Utah) the Sundance Film Festival kicks off again, and many of the world’s best independent films will get their debuts to the public, and the press, over the next few weeks.

Staff Writer Scott Davis takes a look at some of the films making their debuts, and digs deep to find the next gems that could be coming out way in 2015.

Angora Sweaters and Scissorhands: Ranking the Films of Tim Burton

13 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tim Burton is perhaps one of the most unique and exciting filmmakers working today. With a vision inspired by classic horror and a dry wit, his films are often fiercely entertaining and endlessly clever. Of course, that’s not to say that there aren’t dark spots on his filmography. Like every filmmaker he’s had his missteps but even when the movies don’t quite work Burton manages to create films that are visually stunning and artistic. With the recent release of Big Eyes and a possible sequel to Beetlejuice in the works, examining Burton’s work and influence is more important than ever.

17. Planet of the Apes (2001): Even when a Burton film has issues there are usually some redeeming factors (see Darks Shadows’ amazing style) but, oh man, one really has to look hard to find something good in this disaster of a movie. Sure, the makeup »

Why Big Eyes Is Tim Burton's Most Important Film

2 January 2015 1:24 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Tim Burton's filmography is full of strange, off-kilter movies, and embracing that sense of zaniness and weirdness is what has made him a successful director. But by relying too much on style over substance, and by continuing a creative partnership with Johnny Depp that's spanned decades, Burton fell into a rut and nearly devolved into self-parody in recent years. After a string of live-action films that range from misfires to creatively bankrupt catastrophes, Burton's new film Big Eyes shows that not only is the director still capable of telling a story with a relatable human at the center, but he actually excels at it. Swapping a bug-eyed Depp for an expressive Amy Adams, Burton dials back his trademark quirkiness and delivers his most affecting film since Big Fish.

Adams plays Margaret, a single mom with a young daughter to support. In 1958 San Francisco, this isn't exactly a socially acceptable »
