The following is an excerpt from an article commenting on the casting of female heroes. While good intentions were expressed, I think the execution was poor. See my comments below and tell me what you thought of the original article in the comments.…
If you have a few minutes, I would be honored if you would consider watching Snow Hare, directed by Shawn Branden. It is a touching film that addresses grief and acceptance, and I had the pleasure of scoring it a couple years ago while I…Continue

Hello everyone! My name is Nathanael. I'm new here to Nerd Fighters. I discovered the community via CrashCourse History, was intrigued by the concept of Hank and John's record label, and decided to give it all a try.
I'm fresh out of graduate school (I studied film scoring) and so far it has proven to be stressful, but I'm optimistic and patient. I know it won't all happen overnight (nor do I really want it to), and so I've been mostly looking for a day job which, in truth, is the…Continue
Humans have been fascinated with the idea of capturing imagination through the medium of moving images, arguably, throughout our entire evolution, with works such as the Bayeux tapestry attempting to capture the movement of battle. With the invention of the zoopraxiscope by Eadweard Muybridge in 1879, humans got their first real taste of animated images. At…

Jena did you know Die Hard was a book first? Nothing Lasts Forever, by Roderick Thorp, renamed Die Hard later to tie in with the movie. From what I can tell, it’s a good thing the Bruce Willis flick is not a faithful adaptation.
This got me thinking about originalists, who…Continue

Some of you may not of heard about Life in a Day, I would of hoped that you had, as it is a creation of the awesomeness that is youtube. For those of you that don't know Life in a Day is a film put together by a production company called Scot Free, but it was filmed by youtubers from all over the world on a single day- July 24th 2010. Now I'm guessing that most of you can't really remember what you were doing on July 24th 2010, well nor can I to tell the truth but I can remember what a…Continue

Well, first night on Nerd Fighters, and already having a good time! Well, sadly, I have to go on a 4 day trip to North Carolina in the morning, but the ipod is with me and I'm going to follow just what happens here! But yeah......
But in the last bit, I've been in a Toku kick, watching Kamen Rider and Super Sentai the last few days, but mainly Kamen Rider. I finished the Movie War Core trilogy and now I need to watch the Cho-Den-O trilogy, but I gotta find subbed versions. …Continue

Thor, the eagerly anticipated comic film adaptation from the original Marvel comic, first appearing in issue 85 of Journey into Mystery in 1962, hit the cinemas earlier this week. The film, described as "development hell", had mass trouble in the development of it with eventually assigning Protosevich as the script writer in 2006. Matt Vaughn was picked as director in 2008 but then changed to Branagh later that year. But now the review:…

On January 10, 1927, a 153 minute version of Fritz Lang’s epic film Metropolis screened in Berlin, Germany to a less than enthusiastic reception. What followed was a series of re-cuts and rearrangements for each market
that the film was to be released. In the United States, theater managers
saw a film more than 90 minutes in length to be a crowd killer. The
1920’s had seen record highs in attendance with an average movie length
that has persisted into…
