Pacino /De Niro “Dreamed Scenes”

Heat was great, wasn’t it? Those two titans of American cinema, De Niro and Pacino batting back and forth against each other (let’s forget Righteous Kill though).

Hannibal: Script To Screen

Keep Moving 007

Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt didn’t do so much running after all in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. But he’s not the only spy on the block who can show us a clean pair of heels. Daniel Craig as James Bond gives literal meaning to the phrase, “active duty.” And ignore that ageist crack from Silva (“Your […]

If Adventure Has A Name…

  Here’s a nice tribute to one of cinema’s greatest heroes, Indiana Jones, eminent archaeologist, academic, and adventurer by Clara Darko. Good news for Crystal Skull haters (hey, it has its moments!) – this video was edited before that film’s release, so only clips from the first three films feature. Take a look below, and […]
