Delightful. But don't close the tab yet. The film isn't excused from some things that should be discussed, so, on with the details and worthy points, 'ey? I'll start off by commenting on the premise and technical aspects, and I'll mark where I transition into the deeper elements of the screenplay (for those who care about such frivolities as "spoilers"). I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that Hugo is the most gorgeous piece of motion picture color styling that I have ever seen. Nearly (I'm using "nearly" just to be safe) every frame is a work of saturation and gamma depth art that can be studied and learned from. The relatively small-scale, yet intricate sets are breathtaking. Ben Kingsley, whom some of you may remember from Schindler's List and Moses , does not disappoint. The film, in a nutshell, is about the re-discovery of imagination, especially imagination that may have been buried in hurt and loss over time. This journey,...
This year's San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival's Jubilee Award for Best of Festival went to Agenda , a documentary explaining the continuing Marxist agenda in America today. Agenda did a superb job of outlining the connections and strategies that have been formed since long before World War II to destroy our nation from within. In the film, maker Curtis Bowers states that he chose to title his film "Agenda" to highlight the difference between it and conspiracy theories. A conspiracy is defined as "an evil plan devised in secret by two or more persons," while an agenda is "a list of things to be done." The facts presented in Agenda aren't hidden secrets in any way. They can be found in the writings and sayings of members of the radical left all throughout history, and in the modern day. If such an agenda really is present in today's society, then why isn't the general public aware of it? Mainly because the effects of these agendas...
First of all, I'd like to state that I do not in any way suggest that anyone should go out and watch either of the films discussed below. This article regards these films solely as the representatives of different standings in the filmmaking industry, and does not endorse either of them. I also do not suggest that anyone watch the Academy Awards (I received all of my knowledge of them via live blogging.). This year's Academy Awards were frontlined by James Cameron's Avatar and Katherine Bigelow's The Hurt Locker . They were complete opposites in more ways than one. First of all, a few facts regarding each film. Avatar is James Cameron's first blockbuster film since Titanic . Titanic held the world record for the highest gross revenue of a film in history, until James Cameron broke his own record with Avatar grossing (at the time of this writing) $2.6 billion. He spent $237 million to make it. The Hurt Locker is Katherine Bigelow's eighth feature film. It was independently...

By God's grace, HeartStrings [LINK] won the Audience Choice and Young Filmmakers' Awards. This is the first time in SAICFF history that a young filmmaker takes Audience Choice. Praise be to God. Yes yes, I know, I know. Why aren't I in the picture? Well, we aren't "officially" the filmmakers of HeartStrings . But we helped with HeartStrings . When you watch the Behind the Scenes of HeartStrings on the DVD, you'll understand. Ok, yes, I admit that John Moore wrote the script and was the official director... On a serious note, John Moore was an excellent director and manager of things. I truly admire his skills. Do be sure to pick up a DVD complete with the Behind the Scenes (I'm in there ) and other special features. You can do so at www.HeartStringsTheMovie.com
