Spielberg & Hanks Attain Source Material For Third WWII Miniseries

Band of Brothers and its follow-up/counter part The Pacific are two fantastic WWII HBO miniseries from Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. They play on TV all the time and seem to run non-stop on Spike TV and the like between Memorial Day and the 4th of July. They’re always worth the time and it’s almost […]

You Fall, I'll Catch You: Compassion and Bravery in Cloud Atlas

It’s fitting that Cloud Atlas, an inherently brave commercial and artistic venture, places heavy thematic emphasis on instances of human bravery in its sprawl of interwoven plot lines. Andy and Lana Wachowski haven’t built their career together by making cinema that follows traditional notions of filmmaking, after all– going back to 1999, The Matrix completely rewrote the […]

G-S-T Review…Cloud Atlas

Following Cloud Atlas, viewers will invariably find themselves armed with a variety of useful adjectives to describe the film in a single word: grand, towering, epic, inspiring, heartbreaking, heartwarming, hodgepodge. But in adapting David Mitchell’s 2004 novel of the same name, siblings Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer have created a singular, unique work that […]

“The CineMagic 8-Ball” – In Theaters 10/26/12

When so many movies are released each weekend and trailers often seem better than the movie itself, what should one do? In this precarious situation, we consult the The CineMagic 8-Ball (TM) to help us see through the nebulous marketing haze. Doing so just might save us all a disheartening trip to the cinema and […]

For our second installment of posts dedicated to great directors, we’ve chosen to highlight the top five films from the late Nora Ephron. Ephron, who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2006 and passed away earlier this summer at the age of 71, was a force of nature. Not only did she bring us […]

Sweet Trailer…'Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close'

A decade after the events of September 11th I’m not sure anyone is close to being done greiving…but enough time has passed that should have let a larger number of people come to terms with it. Not long after I left yesterday’s screener of Margaret (review coming on 10/7) I found this on our buddy Castor’s page […]

Yi-Ha!!…The G-S-T Trailer Round-Up!!

With this being the end of my first week back from my Honeymoon, I am now absolutely, positively caught up on all that I had missed while being in Australia. Wow, a lot can happen in 2 weeks, huh?! So for anyone out there who also missed a sizable chunk of entertainment goodness, here’s a comprehensive collection of films […]

Off the Shelf…'Road to Perdition'

In the follow up film to Sam Mendes‘ American Beauty, this truly remarkable film wins me over ever single time I view it.  Personally, I am a huge fan of all Tom Hanks’ work and this is probably my absolute favorite.  Tom Hanks plays his role quite a bit more reserved that what I am […]

G-S-T Top 10 – Buddy Flicks

First off, let me preface this by saying that trying to compile a great buddy flick list is going to be hard enough.  There are so many movies that fit this description it’s almost it’s own genre.  To widdle it down to 10 was near impossible so at the bottom I have some very deserving […]
