Internet Distribution


A friend and I were having a discussion recently.
I asked him what he thought the next method of distribution for films and music would be. My thoughts were that we would have to come up with some new method that was convenient, sturdy and didn’t involve compression (as CDs and DVDs do, thereby limiting the picture and sound quality, although not very much). He simply said that it wasn’t going to happen; in the future it’s all going to be distributed on the Internet.
I’ve heard this argument before. My grade ten IT teacher assured us that within five years (and this was four years ago) we would no longer be purchasing CDs. With the advent of broadband we were going to see purchases of music and movies online, streamed to the computer or another device...

iPod Movies – A Cinema In Your Hands

iPod Movies – A Cinema In Your Hands

Did you ever see that movie with Sir Anthony Hopkins when he was a primatologist and he was doing work out in the jungle when he befriended a group of silverbacks? Well, what happens is that these bastard gorilla poachers come by and attack the group. What do you know but, the gorillas and Hopkins(!) fight back and kill a couple of the poachers. He goes to an insane asylum and the great silverback goes to the zoo. Mind you, this thing was fierce and desired freedom more than any star and stripe waving, apple pie eating red-stater could even fathom. But, once he’s in the zoo for so long, when they finally open his cage, he’s too broken to attempt to walk out. Well, that’s like me. Blinking is sometimes too much effort.

But, just today I ran across s...

Movies: The Natural Way To Learn a Language

Have you ever wondered how it is possible that you can speak your native language so easily? When you want to express something, correct phrases and sentences just come to you. Most of this process is unconscious.

Stephen Krashen, a professor at the University of Southern California and a linguistics expert, has developed a hypothesis to explain how this is possible. He used his Input Hypothesis to design what he calls a “natural approach” to learning a language.

Krashen uses “input” in this context to describe the words and sentences that you read and listen to. If you understand these sentences, they are stored in your brain. More specifically, they are stored in the part of your brain that is responsible for language.

Krashen uses his hypothes...

Watching An Inspiring DVD

Find Inspiration From Watching An Inspiring DVD From Time To Time-It Is Good For Your Soul


With any dvd you will be able to find some sort of inspiration, just depending on your mood at that time in your life.
Looking back into my childhood I can remember watching many different types of movies and each one of those movies inspired me in one way or another and will continue to do so for many years to come. Everyone who does not already appreciate good movie making when they witness it should really start thinking about how much work is involved with any type of movie making.

There is a lot more to it than just throwing some people out there with scripts and paying them to sort of seem believable to their audiences...

Crisis On Infinite Earths’ Surprise

Among the numerous surprises in the Arrowerse‘s Crisis On Infinite Earths, it’s safe to say no one expected the debut of a Golden Age DC Comics character: Sargon the Sorcerer (Raúl Herrera). Part 5 of Crisis took place on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and, in keeping with the Arrowverse’s weirdest and most exuberant show, the climactic chapter packed in some zany moments even as the superheroes waged their final battle against the Anti-Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) to save the rebirthed Multiverse.

The seemingly random appearance of Sargon the Sorcerer was a jaw-dropping treat for longtime DC Comics fans. After all, Sargon is certainly a deep-cut character in the DC pantheon. First appearing in 1941’s All-American Comics, Sargon (real name John Sargent) was an actual sorcerer who hid in plain si...

New Golf Tip – How Mind-Movies Will Improve Your Golf Quickly


If you want to improve your golf game nothing will get you on the right track more quickly than well formulated Mind-Movies.
The good news is that you can at last get a really first class guideline on how to develop effective Mind-Movies.

A great deal is written about visualization in sport. A lot of it seems to center around the idea that what the sports person should do is visualize the result they wish to attain.

I do NOT agree with this.

I agree that it is a good idea to have objectives and targets and to visualize those objectives, but that it NOT the most powerful way to use visualization in sport, or indeed in any other area of your life.

‘Star Trek’ Movie Will Have ‘New Cast’

‘Star Trek’ Movie Will Have ‘New Cast’

Star Trek may boldly go on a search for new actors.

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, writer/director Noah Hawley cleared the air about his upcoming Star Trek film. While the movie was initially billed as the fourth movie starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and the rest of the so-called “Kelvin” timeline cast, Hawley now strongly hints that they won’t appear after all.

Hawley told THR that calling his movie “Star Trek IV” would be “kind of a misnomer” and that he has his “own take on the franchise as a life-long fan”:

Asked if the film would involve a new cast, he responded, ‘Yeah, I think so. Yeah...

Brad Pitt Really Doesn’t Want

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt

The Brad Pitt Oscar campaign is going extremely, charmingly, handsomely well. Pitt’s been popping up at awards ceremonies to pick up Best Supporting Actor prizes — or in some cases to present awards to his colleagues from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — and pretty much every speech he’s given has been hilarious. On Tuesday night, he presented Quentin Tarantino with his Best Screenplay award from the New York Film Critics Circle. In doing so, he coined the phrase “iambic quentameter” to describe Tarantino’s distinctive dialogue — a term so clever I’m honestly furious I didn’t think of it.

Then last night at the National Board of Review awards, Pitt got his own prize, for Best Supporting Actor, and dropped a hilarious line stating that his life goals right...

Dog Friendly Screenings Of Cats

Dog friendly screenings of Cats are happening. Perhaps the biggest story at theaters during the tail end of 2019 was, for all the wrong reasons, the arrival of the big screen adaptation of the smash hit Broadway musical, Cats.

The lavish Andrew Lloyd Webber production first arrived back in 1981, and after much acclaim as well as a triumphant run of awards, Cats firmly established itself as one of the greatest stage productions of all time. Given the duration of time that Cats has dominated stages around the world, it may come as a surprise for some as to how long it took to get a film adaptation off the ground. After all, there have been numerous popular stage to film productions over the years, with the most recent example of success being Tom Hooper’s Oscar-winning take on Les Miserabl...
