“Valentine’s Day” is being marketed as a Date Movie. I think it’s more of a First-Date Movie. If your date likes it, do not date that person again. And if you like it, there may not be a second date.

SONY Amazing Spidey 3D

The Amazing Spider-Man 3D 2012  from SONY Pictures is simply the best film i’ve seen in 10 years and the best 3D film i’ve seen ever ! (however to be fair i’ve not seen very many in that time)

Loved:

  • the SONY unbranding of the Pentax SLR camera
  • the SONY product placement of SONY VAIO notebooks
  • the SONY product placement of SONY XPERIA android mobiles
  • the screenplay
  • the 3D effects
  • New York
  • the comedy
Not sure about:
  • one corny line from auntie at the end
  • Gwen being 17 – according to IMDB Emma Stone is already 24

Go see it ! And go see it again if you didn’t see it in 3D the first time ! Then go see it in IMAX 3D !

Pangea Day – can your film change the world?

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Pl3xHIsvF9o

Here's a big idea: Pangea Day plans to use the power of film to bring the world a little closer together. We're divided by borders, race, religion, conflict… but most of all by misunderstanding and mistrust. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that — to help people see themselves in others — through the power of film.

On May 10, 2008 — Pangea Day — sites in Cairo, Dharamsala, Jerusalem, Kigali, London, New York City, Ramallah and Rio de Janeiro will be linked to produce a 4-hour program of powerful films, visionary speakers, and uplifting music. The program will be broadcast live to the world through the Internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones.

Your film could be part of it. The online video revolution has helped spawn a new generation of grass-roots film-makers worldwide. Much of the output, of course, is mediocre. But hidden in there are amazing talents capable of using film to astonishing effect… and capable of telling stories that can create powerful bonds between us.

So ask yourself this. If you had the entire world's attention for just a few minutes, what story would you tell? Perhaps you think the world looks at you, your country and your culture… and just doesn't understand. Then do something about it.

Make a film and upload it here http://www.youtube.com/group/pangeaday. You never know. It could end up bringing millions of people that bit closer together.
