The Social Network: the updated status review!

When was the last time a film has left audiences feeling genuinely sorry for a scheming, condescending sociopath who winds up the youngest billionaire in the world? Leave it to David Fincher to make the case for Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in the frivolously detached yet passionately intense “The Social Network.” Set in the early 2000s, “The Social Network” is based on the novel “The Accidental Billionaires” by Ben Mezrich and captures Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) during his college years in Harvard. He’s a uber-geek with a robotic speaking pattern and a microprocessor-like mind.

The film follows Zuckerberg from the beginnings of the social website and his alleged larceny of the concept. Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (“Charlie Wilson’s War”) finds a traditional coming-of-age tale in the seemingly advanced and artificial world of the Internet. He presents an incredibly witty story that begins in the Ivy League’s contentious hierarchical battles and ends in the excessiveness of the Los Angeles night scene.

Interview: Eric Morgret of MIFFF

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,    

A short while back went to, and reviewed, MIFFF and loved it. Thankfully, we were able to get Eric Morgret to answer a few questions about the genre film festival.

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and the film festival?
I was born into sweet sincerity and a touch of insanity. Marriage has been very good to me.

All my life I have studied film, formal training at the Art Institute and The Film School, informal training at Suncoast, Scarecrow Video, and Netflix. The Art Institute was marginally helpful but The Film School was life changing. The video stores are indispensable. Making films, commercials, music videos, and shorts is a never ending training course of the art. Suffice to say I like movies.

Death is the muse in Clint Eastwood's Hereafter!

Matt Damon sees dead people in Clint Eastwood’s foray into European-inspired cinema “Hereafter.” Damon, Belgian star Cécile De France and twins Frankie and George McLaren assemble an international triumvirate that uniquely experience mortality: George (Damon) tires to hide his metaphysical gifts to communicate with the deceased; Marie (De France) survives a natural disaster that leaves her struggling to return to her journalist career; and Marcus (the McLarens) seeks to contact his dead brother Jason from the beyond. Their journey leads them to a star-crossed encounter where closure could heal to their collective pain.

Tron Night proves that "Tron: Legacy" will kick ass

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review,    

A post from Kotaku a few days ago tells the tale of what Tron Night's footage showed and tells us all that cool sequels are actually possible. Not to say that's what we want, but a well made film is a well made film is a well made film and we can't argue with that.

The post mentions things like, "...the stunning Olivia Wilde as Quorra my god—only makes me want to watch Tron Legacy in full."

"I'm fairly confident in saying that lifelong fetishes will be borne of this scene [the scene where he gets dressed in his digital gear]."

"I'm hopeful that the mysterious of Flynn's existence in the video game world, his relationship to Clu and Tron and Quorra live up to their promise."

We'll be at the movies opening night for this one. Finally something worth watching!
