Terrence Malick Movies

Friday, July 22, 2011 at 11:58 am

Director Terrence Malick once did an uncredited rewrite of Dirty Harry. From what I can tell, that may have been the highlight of his career.

Films from George Lucas George Lucas movies have made the bearded geek a billionaire in spite of himself. While he’s turned out some of the most iconic films in motion picture history, he’s also proven himself to be maddeningly inconsistent.

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 at 10:32 am

I’ve never been too keen on collectible DVDs or hard to find Blu-rays, but I have a friend who’s nuts about the subject. He spends several hours each week scanning the Internet for out-of-print movies that are sure to increase in value over the coming years. And when he’s not doing that, he’s lurking on [...]

In most cases, however, it refers to violent acts designed to advance a specific political, religious, or ideological goal. Movies about terrorism are equally murky, with thinly-veiled pieces of propaganda often listed alongside more thoughtful (and realistic) [...]
