Check out my acting debut with Graduation Day! It's as fun to watch as it was to make (but a lot less painful and time consuming). The best "movie about a kid racing against time to turn in his econ final before he misses graduation" I've ever seen! And such an amazing ending! After half a dozen attempts at filming this based-on-a-true-story, John Gehrke (Dorchester Films) finally completed his tale of a High School student risking his life, and graduation in an attempt to turn in his economics final before its too late. Watch it obsessively! Then see what we were thinking with Graduation Day: The commentary! And be sure to check out The Lactose 500, my first Lights Out sponsored film. While it doesnt really show my directing style (like the upcoming Takeback), you get to see people exploding in slow motion! Fun for the entire family! Watch it now!
For those over sensitized Mormon kids who dont want the hardcore, racist and booty-laden version (both of you), the original PG-13 cut will be out December 4th, just in time for X-mas.
Rush Hour 2 is going crazy at the box office, and while it may not be a Silence of the Lambs or Hannibal type piece of cinema, the style of director Brett Ratner will be added to the cannibal legacy. Originally rumored to be given to Pearl Harbor director Michael Bay, an Entertainment Weekly interview reports that the task to direct the remake of the first installment of Silence of the Lambs (AKA Manhunter) has been given to Money Talks helmer Ratner. To top things off, Lambs director Jon Demme approved the decision.
iFILM doesnt have the best track record. First they were great for being a helpful outlet for independent films. Then they started charging people to show their films. Soon enough, they started stealing our movies without credit. (Ehhh...hmmm...Tom & Drew) Now, theyve hit rock bottom with the lowest of the low: creating a fan made trailer section. No, not original trailers with original content, like, say, Planet of the Pugs. Im talking about bad editing jobs on existing films and movie trailers, switching the music around and desperately trying to convince strangers that their trailer is either authentic or worthy of endless praise and admiration. Sure, the first one or two fan made trailers were convincing, but as time went on, quality and originally died, like a bad guy in Ah-Nuhlds Commando. But wait, isnt all this expressing ones thought creatively? Taking someone elses work and changing it around? Oh wait. Thats Plagiarism. Take a look at what Im talking about with these shenanigans here.
