I still can't believe how awesome this is!
We've all wanted to make a movie at some point. We've all thought it through in our minds, from story to characters to the final act that would shock audiences around the world. Our own personal dream movie. A movie we would ... read feature

Harrison Ford says Blade Runner 2 script is the best thing he's ever read

Or so Ridley Scott says.
Dec 15
I think we can all agree that Blade Runner is an incredible film. I think we can also agree that it probably doesn't need a sequel. But a sequel is probably going to be made anyway, so all we can hope is that it will do ... read

Like wandering the desert for forty years
Folks don't know this about me, but I have a soft spot for biblical stories. Having been raised half Roman Catholic, half who gives a hooey, I have an abundant knowledge of Christian bible quotes and intricacies. Regardless o... read feature

Newest Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer lets the people go

I can't watch help but watch these trailers for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings without thinking about all of the other times I've seen this story played out on film. The Ten Commandments, The Prince of Egypt, that one... read

Ridley Scott addresses Exodus: Gods and Kings' White cast

"You can call them whitey whackers!"
Aug 29
Casting in Hollywood has always been predominantly White. You can argue about certain stars or certain roles, but that's the cold, hard truth. Regardless of the film, the leads have always been a certain race, and in a perfec... read

Ridley Scott producing biblical film based on David

"But Goliath is dead, I smote him myself. I smoted him good!"

With Noah, a Ben-Hur remake, that Bible miniseries, a film based on Pontius Pilate, and Ridley Scott's own Exodus: Gods and Kings in the pipeline, it seems like big Biblical adaptations are making a comeback. That's pretty co... read

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe..."
Is there anything left for me to say about the film? I'm trying not to get ahead of myself but I'm something of a Blade Runner fanatic and, some might say, even a Blade Runner academic. I've written a book on the film, I... read feature


First image of Christian Bale in Exodus has a beard

Dec 30
If there is one thing that Hollywood has taught us that is a historical fact it is that Moses had a beard. While Bale's beard in Ridley Scott's Exodus might not be as epic as Charleton Heston's was it is good to know that the... read

Ridley Scott's Prometheus is a gorgeous movie rife with half-baked, pseudo-intellectual ideas. It's also populated by embarrassingly stupid characters. A lot of my gripes fall at the feet of Damon Lindelof, who rewrote&n... read feature

Ridley Scott's I Am Legend vampires are better than CG

Francis Lawrence's I Am Legend (starring Will "Movin' in with your Auntie and Uncle in Bel Air" Smith) was okay. Not bad, not great, but okay. Part of the reason my enjoyment for it was tempered was that the vampires had cha... read
