An overview of the events and ideas that shaped the year in cinema.
A THR investigation reveals accounts of animal injury, death, cover-up on huge Hollywood productions from “Life of Pi” to “The Hobbit” as the American Humane Association turns a blind eye.
"I often times see blogs and sometimes newspapers bragging about the numbers of the video game industry. The number you see thrown around most recently is that video game sales in 2012 amounted to a whopping $63 billion. You’ll see some outlets comparing that figure to the movie industry, which has a global box office total of $34.7 billion in 2012. I’ve even seen an article claiming that GTA 5 made more than the music industry alone. Of course, these numbers aren’t as simple as they look.”
HEY EVERYBODY, this week on the Travis Bickle on the Riviera movie podcast, we celebrate the only holiday that matters by celebrating the greatest director who ever lived. Tucker Stone and I welcome special guests Morgan Jeske, Sloane Leong, James Stokoe, Brandon Graham, Marley Zarcone, John Keogh, Nina Stone, Katie Witzke, David Brothers, and Jared Lewis to talk about their favorite Carpenter films for an over 3 hour megacast, featuring 8 interviews, 20 pieces of Carpenter’s music, and other assorted shiz (there’s a short essay and a ton of links in the show notes). I went overboard on this one, but it’s Halloween, so why not?
You may not have seen this because I put it up Halloween night, but TELL THE WORLD, TELL EVERYONE, this is the greatest podcast I’ve ever worked on and you need to hear it.
