What isn't subjective is that big franchise films...

Alfred Hitchcock *never* won an Oscar.


Martin Scorsese won *one* Oscar for directing. One. In 2007, after 35 years of filmmaking (and it wasn't for what many will say is his best).

Re: TitanCreed's Coverage Service!

Another thumbs up for TitanCreed.

He knows his stuff. What makes his analysis and feedback strong is that you don't get a sense for what his own personal biases, tastes, etc are, which makes it...

The big budget franchises are safer investments, like bonds or large company stocks. They may cost a ton, but while the upside is low (spend...

Re: HBO vs. Amazon - Alt-History Dramas

Um, take away a comma (or two) off the trillionaire part, we kind of have someone like this in the news everyday already. Hard to compete against reality in this case.

Went to a SAG screening of it last week at the Arclight. Loved it.
