With World War Z coming out this next week, this week’s topic is a creative and fun one. It’s time to create a Survival Guide for When (Not If) the Zombie Apocalypse occurs.
So we posed two questions to the panelists for this week’s roundtable:
1) Where would you hole up during a zombie apocalypse?
2) If you could only have 5 items for your Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit, what would you choose and why?
You won’t want to miss their answers below! This is our most hilarious and creative roundtable yet. Enjoy!
Bless you, Orpheum Theatre. For yet another year, the classic Memphis location will be presenting a series of classic films over the summer months to patrons. This summer’s line-up is perhaps their most impressive yet, spanning eight decades and even including *gasps* a silent film!
For residents of the region, this is a wondrous opportunity to introduce fellow friends and family members to some of the best productions from Hollywood’s past. Most importantly, the series provides a rare chance to see these films on the big screen with a full audience taking in the action.
Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for kids under 12 and also available in packs of 10 for $50. Affordable, for sure, but given how many other things you’ll be dishing out money for this summer – vacations, baseball games, way too much ice cream – you may be wondering what are the best films to pick that deserve your dollars.
Here’s a quick guide to the do’s and don’t’s of the cinematic fun offered by the Orpheum. Read more
No matter how much I cover the film industry, I never cease to be amazed by how naïve I can be in certain situations. Take the recent acquisition of Lucasfilm by the Walt Disney Company. I hailed it as being a superb decision both fiscally and creatively for the Star Wars franchise.
That rationale was built on what I felt was a valid assumption that after George Lucas had tortured his beloved creation with a series of lame prequels in the early 2000s, Disney would very quickly swing in to save the day and administer first aid to the many wounds sustained. Instead, surgery hasn’t even been performed, and Disney is already sending out bills for the procedure. Read more
Even though Clayton and I already previewed all the films premiering in March, April, and May 2013, the recent release of new movie trailers had me wanting to share each one on my Facebook wall. But instead of all that spam, I thought I’d embed them all in one post with some bits of commentary. Needless to say, as the three weeks of law school final exam cramming is upon me, I can’t wait for summer. And a big part of that is summer movie season.
But first, I have to share the newly released first look at the Hunger Games sequel, which is taking over Thanksgiving weekend given the conclusion of Twilight and Harry Potter franchises. I’ve watched it several times and it gives me goosebumps each time. It’s fascinating to me how they’re growing the films beyond the Katniss-narrated structure of books… and I think the payoffs will continue to be positive. Ridiculous how little they’re trying to spoil and therefore, how little of the substantial plot is revealed. AND YET, every second has me more excited. Read more
As some of you may remember, last March I did a post outlining every upcoming movie of 2012. Joseph and I recently started creating such a post for this year but then decided that it would definitely be an information overload for everyone. We’ve decided to just make a series of these for 2013 and break down a few months’ releases at a time. Here are all the movies being released in Memphis/Nashville during the remainder of March thru the end of May. Read more
Yesterday was a game-changing day for a number of reasons. What does the new Veronica Mars film mean for the future of entertainment projects? What does it mean for the future of fundraising? Joseph, Palmer and Clayton are digging in and trying to take their shot at some of the obvious questions that arise from this project’s instant success. Read more
