in Apolitical by

Inception is the movie about which I am most excited, because, “You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” Film School Rejects has one of the first reviews in for Inception and, well, let them say it: I will say this now, without reservation and fully confident that many will agree; Inception is easily the best big budget film of the year thus far. I’ll go further and say that it’s one of the most beautiful, well written, and fully…

‘You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling’

in Apolitical by

“You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” Our minds are the scene of the sale after this very appealing new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Inception, with Leonardo di Caprio, Joseph Gordon-Leavitt (still broke up over Summer, it seems, or is he auditioning for Nolan’s new Joker?), Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, and a lot of pulsating TDK-like strings. Even if this looks basically like The Dark Knight meets The Matrix meets Dreamscape (with a splash ofMW2),…

It looks like the summer of 2012 is going to be one hell of a big blockbuster bonanza, especially in the comic book arena. Not only has Sony already announced it will release its Spider-Man franchise reboot on July 3rd of 2012, but Warner Bros has finally announced today that they will be releasing the third installment of the Batman franchise from Christopher Nolan on July 20th, 2012. And since The Dark Knight had about a year and a half of production/post-production between shooting’s commencement in January…

St. Petersburg Times’ political editor Adam Smith fails to give credit where credit is due

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

Two similar national stories about altered photos of Barack Obama, each with a local connection, have captivated both the traditional media and the blogosphere. The first centered around St. Petersburg’s Dr. David McKalip’s e-mailing of a photoshopped picture of Obama depicted as a witch-doctor, the second was about Florida state Rep.

Why So Serious? Dark Knight is epic

in Apolitical/Peter by

Yes, Peter Schorsch was one of the dorks in line for the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight. Quite simply, The Dark Knight is the best movie of the decade. Better than No Country for Old Men, better than There Will Be Blood, in fact, this movie ranks in my Top 10, right next to Heat for Best Crime Drama not featuring a Corleone. It is certainly the best story about America in the Post 9/11 world as Gotham is…
