    Dirty Harry explains what drew him to Jersey Boys: Clint Eastwood interview | Toronto Star

    Eastwood wouldn’t mind being in a Tarantino movie, or maybe having Tarantino in one of his movies.

    “Sure, if the right material comes along. I like him very much. I’ve talked with him over the years, I’ve run across him now and then, but I’ve never really had the opportunity,” Eastwood explains.

    “He’s never had the right material for me and I’ve never had the right material for him.”
    Well, for the love of ****, get the right material!!!!!!!!!!!

    Christopher Nolan Talks "Bleak Future" Of Cinema & How Studios Will "Relearn" The Value Of The Theatrical Experience |The Playlist

    "Once movies can no longer be defined by technology, you unmask powerful fundamentals—the timelessness, the otherworldliness, the shared experience of these narratives," he writes, adding: "The audience experience is distinct from home entertainment, but not so much that people seek it out for its own sake. The experience must distinguish itself in other ways. And it will. The public will lay down their money to those studios, theaters and filmmakers who value the theatrical experience and create a new distinction from home entertainment that will enthrall—just as movies fought back with widescreen and multitrack sound when television first nipped at its heels."

    "The theaters of the future will be bigger and more beautiful than ever before. They will employ expensive presentation formats that cannot be accessed or reproduced in the home (such as, ironically, film prints). And they will still enjoy exclusivity, as studios relearn the tremendous economic value of the staggered release of their products," Nolan continues. "The projects that most obviously lend themselves to such distinctions are spectacles. But if history is any guide, all genres, all budgets will follow."
    I think I can almost hear JD rolling his eyes.

    Nolan has championed this notion for many years. I became aware of his position when he made The Dark Knight, and wanted more of the film to be shot in IMAX. Based on the result he achieved, I'd have loved more IMAX scenes. The only theatrical feature films I've seen that have made suitable and impressive use of IMAX so far have been The Dark Knight and Pacific Rim.

    Furthermore, while the shared experience should not be underestimated, the nature of the shared entertainment experience is changing along with technology. As a result, the efforts to explore new avenues of the live shared experience seem to be opening new arenas for such entertainment outside of cinema. This seems to support both ends of Nolan's argument.

    Watch: Christian Bale Gets Biblical In First Trailer For Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus: Gods & Kings’ | The Playlist

    Ridley Scott is such a shell of his former self that he should be forced to change his name.

    Watch: 'Aryan Papers' Actress Talks & More In Rare Dutch Stanley Kubrick Documentary|The Playlist

    According to this rare Dutch TV documentary, Kubrick was a big fan of George Sluzier's "The Vanishing," even calling the filmmaker to talk about editing after watch the thriller. And perhaps it's no coincidence that "The Vanishing" actress Steege wound up being called by Kubrick by "The Aryan Papers." And in the doc she talks about her brief experience on the project, reading the script and even working with the director, before it was all scuttled. And there's more too in the doc, so for all you completists, this is a must watch.
    Goddamn ****ing right he was a fan of that movie. It's ****ing amazing.
