10 Films to Help You Judge a Potential Suitor

The dating scene can be real bummer. Especially when you think you finally found that perfect someone and all seems to be going great. Great, that is, until you find out they have the worst taste in movies ever. What if the first time you make it to their house is like 3 months into [...]

Excess Hollywood: Young, Black and Thug

Nothing makes me wish more young black male rap stars took thug movie roles than seeing Ice Cube do family comedies. (Though let’s be honest for one second, LL Cool J does make for a perfect romantic lead, as he was never threatening in the first place, and don’t even get me started on [...]

Tribeca Film Festival Profile

Wednesday, April 25----In only its sixth year, the Tribeca Film Festival has emerged as not only a major cultural celebration for New York City, but an industry must-attend event of considerable influence and gravitas. With its (relatively) modest start in 2002, the Festival ran over 5 days, screening 116 feature films and 36 short films, attracting fewer than 150,000 attendees. At last year's event, the Festival clocked in nearly 500,000 attendees, with a feature film roster of 174 films...

A Green Opening Night At Tribeca Film Festival

Wednesday, April 25----Former Vice President (and almost President) Al Gore will serve as the host when the 12-day Tribeca Film Festival opens tonight with a "green theme" (a perfect fit for Gore's new media fame and his Oscar for AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH). The seven films screening tonight were commissioned by SOS (Save Our Selves), the organization behind the Live Earth global concert series which will be held in seven different cities around the globe on July 7, 2007. The missio...

Roger Ebert is a bad ass.

As a kid, we hardly ever got “good” movies in our town. As a result, I had to live vicariously through Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert. While the two-minute reviews certainly didn’t help my Sesame Street ravaged attention span, I loved seeing the two masters at work. When I first started watching the show it was [...]

In Defense of Big Green…

Being a pure comic book geek, some recent news just completely gave me a bout of excitement that prompted a giddy squeal, and that was the news that Edward Norton, one of my favorite actors of all time, will be portraying the hulk, in “The Incredible Hulk.” Now this is just excellent news because I’m naturally [...]

Simon Cowell Lives to Fight Another Day

And so does American Idol. “Is he writing a blog about Simon Cowell?” Yes, yes I am. I know some of you fine Threat readers are fans of American Idol. And though I haven’t quite figured out why you (or the millions of other people) actually like and defend the show, I thought I’d address an event [...]

WE DIDN’T NEED A GRINDHOUSE, BUT A GRINDHOME (AKA: Yet another opinion about why the hell it bombed.)

What the fuck happened to Grindhouse? It’s not like people weren’t hungry for horror movies. Disturbia, a barely concealed remake of Rear Window, is #1 at the box office. At the same time Grindhouse isn’t even on the top ten anymore. Is there no justice? Well, if you think about it for a minute, it becomes [...]

Take a dip in The Fountain…

I have to admit right off the bat that this blog is too little too late. I would have written it earlier but all that other stuff I was wrapped up in has prevented me to do so. So I’ll do it now, weeks prior to its official DVD release, and hope maybe one or [...]

Joey Pants and Marcia Gay Come To Sarasota

Thursday, April 19-----Character actor "Joey Pants" Pantoliano and Oscar-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden arrive in Sarasota today to promote their latest film together, CANVAS, and to participate in the A Conversation With.....series at Sarasota's historic Asolo Theater. CANVAS is the directorial debut of director Joseph Greco, which was shot on location in the state of Florida. In this searing drama, Pantoliano and Harden play John and Mary Marino, a working class Florida cou...

Excess Hollywood: The Grindhouse Experience

As is my usual mode of operation, I showed up at the theatre before it even opened. First in line … if there had been a line. The outside of the theatre was a mess due to renovations, but inside of the theatre made the disaster outside look positively inviting. Discarded soda [...]

The Shape Of Things To Come

Tuesday, April 17---While Sarasota may be noted for its beautiful sunsets, pristine beaches and cultural offerings, it is also an important city of architectural interest. In the years after the second World War, a number of architects, influenced by modernism and the Bauhaus movement, built a number of intriguing public and private buildings, which constitute an architectural legacy of some renown. Whether this legacy is properly prized by local authorities is another issue. As Sarasota grows i...

Emerging Jewish Voices

 Monday, April 17-----One of the best attended sidebars of the Sarasota Film Festival is its Emerging Jewish Voices program, featuring a diverse group of Jewish-themed films that provide a contemplative and suggestive look at the re-examination of Jewish history and a sense of what is important to contemporary Jewish culture.   The Jewish community is particularly mindful of keeping its history, both tragic and transecendent, alive in the hearts and minds of its members. This sentiment reaches...

History Lessons At The Sarasota FF

user
Sunday, April 16---With the tail end of the Northeastern storm that has been plaguing the Eastern half of the United States whipping through Sarasota (for half the day, at least), the respites of the Festival’s jam-packed schedule provided a dry and warm alternative to the blustery winds outside the theater. This being my first full day of screenings, I opened myself to the serendipity of film hopping, only realizing after the day was done that there emerged a kind of symmetry to it all.The fi...

The current plight of the Native American Film community was illustrated via mainstrean media in the April 11, 2007 edition of LA Weekly.  Written against the context of the 10th anniversary of the critical and commercial success of "Smoke Signals," author Matthew Fleischer, delves into the complex struggles facing today's Native Filmmakers. From the usual suspects of funding and distrubution to the complexities of substantive storytelling, there appears to be a new wave of filmma...

Why Snakes Don’t Have Balls…

Well, Tarantino and Rodriguez wanted to bring us the Grindhouse experience and they did. I sat in a smelly theater, watching a double feature with crappy film quality, and no one except me, my mom, my sister, and about three other folks were in attendance. Those who watched didn’t get the joke. I can’t blame them. But has [...]

A Respite From The Rain at Gen Art Film Festival

Friday, April 13------If the theory that shitty weather is good for film festivals holds true, then the time is perfect for this year's Gen Art Film Festival. Although the calendar says mid April, Spring is decidely late this year, with massive rainstorms and temperatures well below normal bursting the bubbles of New Yorkers ready for the winter thaw. So, with the weather inclement, the heat generated from packed screenings and even more crowded after-parties are making this year's Gen A...
