  1. Any DSLR cinematographers out there who can recommend some good, affordable old SLR lenses which would be good for a Canon T3i? Models and personal recs would be greatly appreciated.

      Budget is around 800. I've got some wide angle, now I'm looking into telescopic/zoom lenses.

      I find it incredibly hard to believe that Marvel would take a script from two proven writers with produced credits and hand it off to two no names. That said, Whedon and Simon Pegg's tweets suggest that 1.) Wright walked away 2.) Marvel was pushy on something and being difficult. So it's not outside the realm of possibility.

  2. Hannibal Season 2 might be the greatest piece of television I have ever seen. That finale, while slow at times, builds to the most emotionally devastating set piece to air on television.

      Made Game of Thrones look like a bed time story.

      whatever parts of Section 6 are actually factual and historical (while connected to bond) should be fair game. right?

  3. What if Edward Snowden hadn't fled and exposed the NSA's Prism program, but stayed and used it to anonymously fight crime? It's THE LIVES OF OTHERS meets THE PRETENDER.

      This is good news, actually. I'd rather it languish in development hell and wait for the right cast than be anything less than a fully realized beauty.

  4. Hannibal Lecter did this to me.

      ...I don't remember that scene in the script I read. But then again it was a while ago. That said, Hannibal has an insane amount of cannibalism puns. It's like he wants to get caught... (cue feral fight scene).

      Saw two articles on it...then again, rumor mill doesn't help anyone involved.

      Can't recommend it enough - everyone should read the pilot and watch the series.

      Bryan Fuller is an evil genius. Maybe a serial killer.

      She's not, they issued a statement stating the opposite when that story broke, no?

  10. House of Cards must hold some type of record for the amount of metaphors and analogies they churn out every episode

      ...that was asinine. Someone should bury this dinosaur. They'd be worth more as a fossil on display in some museum.

  11. "The Guardians of the Galaxy" trailer was magnificent.

  12. Watching True Detective is like watching someone bleed onto the page and screen. Just amazing work.

      I have mild issue with the pacing, but it gets better with every episode. I'm sad the opening credits will change next season.

      Had mixed feelings about the subway scene (too State of Play) but it left my roommate and I in shock once we realized it wasn't some sort of dream sequence. Very well done to play it straight. Overall, season 2 is a fucking masterpiece.

  14. This biopic trend is really wearing me out.

      The news of the Alice in Wonderland Louis Carroll biopic was the last straw. I just stopped caring.

  15. Looks like Jurassic World is beginning to get underway as I noticed some casting sides up from Jonn Papsidera(The one who did casting for most Chris Nolan films, including DKR) for a character called Hamada.

      Hiroyuki Sanada should get on that.

      Gawker. By putting it on their site they got advertiser traffic.

      Sorry, but this was wide spread dissemination for profit. They can fuck themselves.

      He has a solid claim - he was going to shop it around to publishers, but the public dissemination of the material kinda devalues the work. Additionally, it's still his IP. This should be a slam dunk.
