Love it. Hate it. But J.J. Abrams apologizes for the lens flares in the Star Trek movies.
I know I get a lot of grief for that,” says Abrams. “But I’ll tell you, there are times when I’m working on a shot, I think, ‘Oh this would be really cool… with a lens flare.’ But I know it’s too much, and I apologize. I’m so aware of it now. I was showing my wife an early cut of Star Trek Into Darkness and there was this one scene where she was literally like, ‘I just can’t see what’s going on. I don’t understand what that is.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I went too nuts on this.'” “This is how stupid it was,” J.J. Abrams added. “I actually had to use ILM [Industrial Light & Magic] to remove lens flare in a couple of shots, which is, I know, moronic. But I think admitting you’re an addict is the first step towards recovery.
Personally? I didn’t mind them. Even liked them. I thought they added an atmosphere to the movies. But that’s just me, and I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority on that. But still nice to hear filmmakers respond to the fans like this.
21 Jumpstreet was EASILY my favorite comedy that year! I couldn’t remember the last time I laughed that hard. And looks like the cast and crew are back in production, picking up where the first movie left off…
…the cops are going to college.

So everyone’s favorite Furyan is back in action. And what’s the overall take on RIDDICK?
Don’t get me wrong, the movie was fun as hell. But sadly, more than anything, it felt like a remake of Pitch Black. Seriously, break it down from the trailer: stranded on a desolate planet, people hate Riddick, Bounty Hunters, and creepy ass monsters that really seem to business only at night… I mean it doesn’t give you anything new. Continue reading REVIEW: RIDDICK
So how many comic fans are there out there? Some of you might be old enough to remember back in the late ‘80’s, early ‘90’s the comic industry went through, what is now referred to as, THE GULT! [que INCEPTION, “BARWAG”]
All started with the first incarnation of Valiant Comics, when they did a really fun redemption program for #0 issues. A promotion really unheard of at the time, and I think they were the first one to do #0 issues too. But what happened? The after market on these comics BLEW UP! Going for insane amounts of dollars.
Safe to say all of the other publishers, including Marvel and DC, took notice. Somehow, from there, this idea of special issues transmorgafied into these gimmick covers. And before you knew it, you were getting this influx of “special” editions. Featuring chromium, prism, hologram, you name the sparkly cover… all carrying a premium cover price, but no added story or content benefit to the reader.
Next thing you know, the comic book industry as a whole hit an all time low. It was a dark time. And the GULT had taken hold.
Slowly but surly comics came out of it. Putting more value on story then some variant cover. And before you knew it, comics became a varied wealth of strong stories.
Why do I mention this? It kind of feels like the Film Industry is head in it’s own little version of the GULT right now. Continue reading The Film Gult
