One more time?

May 22, 2011 by Caleb Strait on Caleb Strait's Blog · Uncategorized

I remember liking Pinocchio better the first time I watched it. I figure back then I squirmed in my seat as a result of childish energy overflow, but this time I squirmed because of how dark and twisted everything seemed. I still ended up liking it on a whole this… read more

Just like that?

May 21, 2011 by Caleb Strait on Caleb Strait's Blog · Uncategorized

What!? Just like that? I didn’t say it in the theater, but the ending of Bonnie and Clyde floored me. I spend around 107 minutes getting to know the two title characters as people, their flaws, their darkest secrets… and they get riddled with holes out of nowhere and we… read more

Pulp Fiction–The Little Things

May 13, 2011 by Tania Mukherjee on Tania Mukherjee's Blog · Uncategorized

In Pulp Fiction, Vincent tells Jules about how there are “little things” that make the big difference between Europe and the USA.

Presentations

When the remaster of The Beatles White Album and Abbey Road were released, I was ecstatic. Not only did it sound cleaner, but the modern eq and stereo conversion just plain sounded better. It was the same music, but closer to what I heard in my head. The Star… read more

Reservoir Dogs

May 11, 2011 by Patrick Bernhard on Patrick Bernhard's Blog · Uncategorized

I recently had the chance to watch Reservoir Dogs for probably the third or fourth time, and there were a few filming techniques that I really enjoy each time I watch it. For example, early on in the movie, when Harvey Keitel and Steve Buschemi were discussing how their heist… read more

Thor

May 11, 2011 by Shawn Chrapczynski on Shawn Chrapczynski's Blog · Uncategorized

I went into this movie not knowing what to expect. There are a few things that bothered me in the movie, but I won’t say because most people haven’t seen this. Overall it is a good movie and I feel other people should watch and see what it has to… read more

Star Wars

May 10, 2011 by Patrick Bernhard on Patrick Bernhard's Blog · Uncategorized

I feel the need to totally nerd out here. Star Wars is partially responsible for making me so interested in film and its effect on me. Part of it could be my watching it numerous times as a kid, but the fact that it can still get me so excited… read more
