Movie list

Film Study- Titanic- Top Oscars 3-Films with 11 wins

There is a three way tie for films that won the most Academy Awards.  As of 2018 the record stands at 11. 

Director/Screenwriter James Cameron wrote and Directed one and it amazed me.  He took a story out of the history books that we all knew the ending of and included not only a second but a third story to give it new life.  The overall storyline; A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic. This film won 11 Academy Awards.

Film Study: The Godfather trilogy or watching all three?

The question from some of my film study Students is, should we watch the Godfather trilogy customized for television with less violence and language and shown in chronological order or watch the films as they were shown to audiences upon their release?

Master Director Francis Ford Coppola is able to maintain an amazing balance of powerful character driven stories written by Mario Puzo, peppered with the ruthless violence we expect from a gangster film in this multi-generational saga of the rise and fall of the Corleone crime family.

Fight Club film study

Film Study Fight Club 1996
Actors bringing Characters to life

In 1996 a new author, Chuck Palahniuk, wrote a quirky novel called Fight Club.  In 1999 Fight Club was made into a quirky flick.  And within a couple years it became a Cult Classic. Not everyone likes this film, but I do.   Actor Brad Pitt has proved himself over and over to be first class in his craft.  From the first time I saw him walk away in “Thelma and Louise” to his virtuous role as Louis de Pointe du Lac in “Interview with a Vampire” I knew he was going to be iconic.

One Flew over the cuckoo's nest- Highly recommended for film study

Film Study
Films that made a difference

When counterculture novelist,Ken Kasey wrote One flew over the cuckoo's nest  he created a character named Randle Patrick McMurphy literally.  Played impeccably by Jack Nicholson who makes this film dance with intense highs and brutal lows.  The film itself is bipolar. With a back up cast from Heaven and a Antagonist from Hell. It all fits in this 1975 Academy Award winning best picture drama that made me want to run from the Theater like Chief ran from the institution.

A new Pennywise?

A new Pennywise? Bill Skarsgard, one of the stars of Hemlock Grove, will play Pennywise the Clown, the role made iconic by Tim Curry in the 1991 TV miniseries that starred John Ritter, Annette O'Toole, Harry Anderson and Richard Thomas.

The first part of Stephen King’s It began shooting in Toronto in July.
From the online site:The-line-up.comWriter Jessica Ferri says IT is the best from the King of terror. I beg to differ but here is what she says:
This one is particularly timely, as the first image of Pennywise, from the upcoming remake of IT, has taken the Internet by storm.
