Perhaps one of the best examples of how bad the Academy is at picking the best film of the year, Mulholland Dr. was not even nominated for Best Picture in 2001. Instead they chose Ron Howard’s competent but all too formulaic and forgettable A Beautiful Mind that year. Although Director David Lynch (The Elephant Man, Dune, Lost Highway) did win Best Director at Cannes, it took time for some people to give the film the acclaim it truly deserves. It’s understandable in that if there was ever a film that DEMANDED repeat viewings it is this one. It is the first and only movie I have ever watched and then immediately rewinded and watched again (mind you it’s a 2.5hr long movie). I was interested but confused the first time, understandably so I think. The second time I wanted to go erect a statue in my yard in dedication to this cinematic achievement. If you missed out on this film when it came out, STOP READING as it is impossible to discuss this movie at any level of detail without completely ruining it for you. Go watch it, then read this, then go watch it again. (more…)

To promote the new movie Tron: Legacy, Disney is putting up a real-life “Flynn’s Arcade” from the original Tron movie. If you were lucky enough to go to Comic-Con you may have seen the one they had there, which I hear was basically an exact replica. I can only assume this uses the same setup.

“From a dazzling dance club under the stars to an authentic recreation of Flynn’s Arcade to some radical gaming, it’s like nowhere else on the grid! Each night, we’ll feature live entertainers, complete with lasers, glow accessories and the hottest music ever to rock the grid. ElecTRONica is “the” place to dance the night away in a fantastic world that only Disney can create. Highlights for the entire family will definitely be Flynn’s Video Arcade, face painting and the TRON: Evolution video game area. ElecTRONica will transform Disney California Adventure park Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays this Fall. TRON fans and families can also enjoy the party seven days a week during Thanksgiving week and Christmas week.”–Disney Parks Blog

Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Danny Moltrasi]

David Fincher is a personal favourite of mine. Fight Club is, in my opinion, one of the most important film of the 90s…and in cinema history (and thus, was fairly ignored at time of release), which automatically makes every project he does of a fair amount of interest to me. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was loved by the Oscars, and has pretty much completed Fincher moving from having his first film in the limelight (Aliens 3), to moving away from it (Se7en, The Game, Fight Club), and then back to the mainstream (Benjamin Button). Very little in the year 2010 is more mainstream than Facebook, and that is exactly what Fincher is tackling in his latest movie, The Social Network. The trailer itself does not tell anything new about the story, which itself is a fairly interesting story about a company that everyone in the Western world knows. The subject matter should secure it as a box office success, but will it get the same love that Benjamin Button got from the award givers…? I doubt it, but it does not seem to be too bad, I certainly hope that Fincher can make something with a bit more depth than maybe another director may have done. Hopefully Fincher can make it something more than just a story about Facebook, but we will just have to wait and see. To be fair to Fincher, he has given himself an uphill battle here, at least from cinema-snobs. Social Networks are bound to be a matter of hate for them, and having Justin Timberlake in an important role is just asking for a backlash! But, I am sure Fincher can do something pretty interesting with The Social Network.
