10 Thoughts on ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ After a Second Viewing

10 Thoughts on ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ After a Second Viewing

So with over $500 million in box office receipts, I doubt am the only one who decided give Star Wars: The Force Awakens another go. It is hard to deny the power this particular series still has on me, even as I rail against other corporate movie franchises (which, one has to admit is automatically […]

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will have an IMAX monopoly for a month

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will have an IMAX monopoly for a month

I can’t say that this news is surprising at all, but it’s still interesting to me. When the much anticipated seventh episode in the Star Wars saga opens, it’s going to have quite the run on the IMAX format. Yes, reports have stated that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be given essentially a four […]

J.J. Abrams rumored to be the front-runner to direct ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

Consider this just a rumor for now, but if it turns out to be true, then this could really bode well for the quality of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (side note: I always mistakenly call it The Force Unleashed for some reason). Yes, a report has Episode VII helmer J.J. Abrams being courted to […]

Showtime has ordered the ‘Roadies’ pilot from Cameron Crowe

Showtime has ordered the ‘Roadies’ pilot from Cameron Crowe

A few days ago I wrote a bit about Cameron Crowe potentially partnering with J.J. Abrams for a comedy pilot at Showtime. Well, now we can report that the network has officially ordered the pilot, so this project is one step closer to happening. It’s called Roadies, Crowe will write and direct the debut, and […]

Cameron Crowe is developing a Comedy Pilot for Showtime with J.J. Abrams

Cameron Crowe is developing a Comedy Pilot for Showtime with J.J. Abrams

As one of the few ardent defenders of Elizabethtown out there (and to a lesser extent, We Bought a Zoo…that final sequence makes me cry every single time), I feel protective of Cameron Crowe. He’s an old fashioned filmmaker in many ways, so his kind of work doesn’t have the same sort of home in […]

Gareth Edwards will direct a ‘Star Wars’ spinoff

Gareth Edwards will direct a ‘Star Wars’ spinoff

I had a feeling that it would only be a matter of days between Godzilla opening as well as it did and director Gareth Edwards being courted for a high profile project. While he’s still attached to do Godzilla sequels, in the meantime he’s going to be directing one of the handful of Star Wars […]
