Just Watched: Serenity
My friends and I went through a phase a month back where had run out of DvD’s we owned that one or two of us had yet to see. In response to this terrifying lack of entertainment, we decided to watch some television. Sean, fellow host of the “Film Feed” suggested we watch Firefly as it was only on the air for a single season. And what a glorious season that was. The show...

Random: Feb. 22, Looking Forward to It?
I’m not really sure. The team leading this year’s Academy Awards have promised a spectacle grander than anything else before it, with a new style, no monologue, and Hugh Jackman. However, I feel that this year’s Oscars may be another record low for the Academy Awards telecast. Average movie goers are rather miffed as to the nominations, with Milk, The Reader, and Frost/Nixon...

I think we can expect this bill to pass before the Senate recesses. It’s got some flaws, but it’s Washington. It’s about as good as it gets.
Just Watched: Vicky, Christina, Barcelona
Well, I just got home from the International Film Series’ screening of a film that debuted back in 2008. Vicky, Christina, Barcelona stars the lovely Rebecca Hall and Scarlet Johansson as two American tourists who decide to spend the summer in the beautiful Spanish town of Barcelona. While visiting, the two run into a charming local whose suave manner and dashing good looks charmed even...
Rorschach is such a dynamic and interesting character. So much so, that Watchmen wouldn’t be Watchmen without him.
Just Watched: Kagemusha
Kagemusha, considered one of Kurosawa’s most notable epics, is best described as a samurai film that chronicles the conflicts, rises, demises, and resolutions between several clans in medieval Japan. Watching this film is a dauting task in its duration alone, as it spans 3 hours. The plot is centered around the Takeda clan and it’s vie for dominance over the rest of Japan. However,...
Rant: A Discourse on the Perversion of Argument
A Discourse on the Perversion of Argument, Draft 1. Immanuel Kant, a child of the enlightenment, notably stated- “Sapere Aude”. This latin phrase has origins tracing back to Horace who used it to describe the pursuit of knowledge in “Epistularum liber primus” which was published in 20BC. However, Kant took the phrase and transformed it into the motto of the enlightenment....
Random: Stumbled Upon an Interesting Topic Today
Today, while purusing some of my favorite blogs, I came across an article (http://twurl.nl/1movig). The article presents a judicial issue that I thought to be resolved more than a hundred years ago. Reynolds v. United States was a case brought against George Reynolds on charges of bigamy, or having more than one spouse simultaneously. Reynolds defended his case using religious grounds, stating...
Several Sundance Acquisitions →
Push: Based on the Novel by Saphire as well as Whatever Works were picked up by distribution companies Lionsgate and Sony Pictures Classic respectively. I’m still waiting on a few I’m excited for, most notably Worlds Greatest Dad, Adam, Humpday, and Paper Heart.
Rant: Twitter down?
Well, it appears as though Twitter is down and has been for the whole day. I know it sounds odd that I’d be this dependent on a social networking tool, but I feel really outta the loop with it gone. I can’t how frantic I’d be if I lost Google Reader for a day… You can always follow me on Twitter (when its back up of course) at twitter.com/willschiff
Random: Early Year Hollywood Doldrums?
As an avid movie lover, I find myself at odds with how Hollywood releases great films in cycles. Of course, the biggest movies of the year tend to come out between May and July as the Summer season kicks off while the Oscar/Award Winners tend to release in November and December in order to be fresh in voter’s minds. Well, what’s left in between those gaps? January through April is...
