Storyboarding is hard.

Really, really, REALLY hard.

Twenty-Five years ago I went in for a job interview at Klasky Csupo for a character design gig and met with Mitch Watson - a producer for their new show, “The Wild Thornberrys”.

#Surrealism against the current – A film review on #IvanZulueta´s "Rapture" (#Arrebato)
Available @IMDb…

2.- and will find many connections and influences behind names like Almodovar, Banderas, and other popular names of the Spanish "Movida" and associated film scene. You might start taking a quick look at Jaime Chavarri's "Mi querida señorita" and "El desencanto" to understand...

Zulueta studied graphic design in New York, at the prestigious Arts Students League in Manhattan Midtown, where in 1964 he discovered Warhol's Superstars at The Factory,...

Wow! This is actually the perfect metaphor! As someone who served in #Somalia, maybe these “kids” are too young to know.

Black Hawk helicopters were shot down over #Mogadishu. Then the rescue mission set after them also got shot down!

#NAFO #film #war #Africa
It was the early 1990’s. 🇺🇸 was supposed to be part of a multinational coalition under a United Nations 🇺🇳 (“Blue Helmet”) command structure in Somalia 🇸🇴.

🇺🇸 had 1 job: help defend emergency food relief convoys.

Instead, somebody decided to be “John Wayne” and go off script!
In BROAD DAYLIGHT, those MFs decided they were going to fly across town (in full view) into a “hot” landing zone, in the heart of rebel-controlled #Mogadishu, and then try to *capture* the rebel Gen. Mohammed Aideed.

Later, we ended up with THIS mess:

How to spoil a masterpiece – A film review on Netflix “Blonde”
Available on @moviebuffindia…
If you have seen and enjoyed "Lost Highway," "Requiem for a dream," "Ed Wood," "Bad lieutenant," or "Dead man," you may appreciate Blonde's
efforts, good intentions, artistry, and creative bearing. The film's lush visuals help create the glittering atmosphere that sets Norma Jean apart from the legend of Marilyn, and also help build her character and portray her inner conflicts. In this sense, the film is a 10 and a
First and foremost, this film itself is based on Joyce Carol Oates´ eponymous novel and not on the real events surrounding Marilyn´s life. The main (and partial) takes on the book are built upon the idea of the dissociation between the Norma Jean persona and her

so, here's why i disliked #BrahmastraMovie
* It's a rare superhero #film where the universe is threatened to be consumed by dark powers but no one gives a flying fcuk except for a few chosen ones who run a lovely professional university kinda ashram. There's no sense of panic Image
* Once awakened, Ranbir's character mainly uses his powers of pyrotecnics to woo his girlfriend. There are fireflies, fire birds, fire this, fire that. In short... fire, fire everywhere, not a soul to see. No one notices the strange pyrotecnics in the sky
#BrahmastraMovie #film Image
* The dialogues of #BrahmastraMovie are like subtitles of a Telugu #film dubbed in English. Sample few

Wo so raha hai kyunki uske andar ki mahashaktiyan jaag rahi hain

Kaun ho tum? Kya ho tum?

Tum mere pyaar me jal gayi.

And then, #AliaBhatt 's shiva, shiva, shivaaa, SHIVAAA

1/ I would like to take a couple tweets to promote the #Ukrainian #film #archive preserved by the Dovzhenko Centre. The archive includes tons of historical information as well as the legacy of many Ukrainians that are no longer with us.
2/ I do this for three reasons. Firstly, to fight against #Russians attempts to eliminate #Ukrainian culture. We know now that #Pedoputin aims to destroy #Ukraine legacy, history, and culture. He won’t succeed. Furthermore, he already lost. Ukraine will prevail, #UkraineWillWin.
3/ Secondly, to request all #Ukrainians and all friends of #Ukraine in possession of films in danger of deterioration to consider the Centre Film Fund as a possible repository. Your films could be safeguarded there for future generations.

This week Google will release the new Helpful Content algorithm update, specifically targeted to de-rank sites that create content purely for SEO. It is going to absolutely destroy a large chunk of the #videogame publications that rewrite content and create How Tos that are spam.
Particularly, #Videogames websites that appear as if they will answer a question and then guide you through content without ever actually answering the content are going to be targeted. Bad for re-write journalists - great for actual users.
If your website does the following you are likely to be impacted by the Google update:
1. Compile or aggregate information as opposed to write unique content.
2. Solely write content to ask and answer questions Googled by users without providing NEW UNIQUE CONTENT,

Why I think this decade could be the next golden age of Tamil cinema (after the 80's), a thread🧵
#Tamilcinema #film #Kollywood
@baradwajrangan and @RaunaqMangottil I think you'll like this thread :)
Many consider the 1980's as the golden age of Tamil cinema because of some of it's greatest filmmakers like KB, #Bharathiraja, #BaluMahendra, #Mahendran etc arguably making their career best films in that period
I'll admit this decade of #Kollywood was off to a bit of a rocky start in 2020 vis a vis the pandemic with only few films even getting released but below are the filmmakers that I think will do their career best in this decade make it a great one for Tamil cinema! :

Watching Thor: Love and Thunder is like guzzling down a raw hamburger and strawberry smoothie that hasn’t been thoroughly puréed yet, but much less satisfying. 🧋🐮

How could the newest and most anticipated entry in phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe go so sideways?🤔
This undercooked action comedy pork cutlet stars Thor as he rescues some kidnapped children from the evil Gore the God-Butcher,

With help from his ex-girlfriend Natalie Portman who now is also a Thor. #ThorLoveAndThunder #Thor

‘Baymax!’ Is Just A Bunch Of Patronizing Public Service Announcements😴

Woke as it is brain-dead
‘Baymax!’ has all the subtlety of a low B-episode of Captain Planet & storytelling as deep as an evaporated puddle 🫧… @FDRLST #baymax #disney #mcu #marvel #rt
Disney doesn't seem to know its audience & lets progressive platitudes blind itself to releasing expensive shows that are only so-so

W/ some the wokeness turns them off immediately, but there isnt a lot here for progressives either… #tv #film #filmtwitter
For example, the infamous shopping scene in Baymax! it doesn't make much sense

An all-knowing robot needs help from a bunch of Grown men. In the feminine hygiene aisle

Discussing their favorite brand of tampons, as we all know men are wont to do…🙄

Happy Walt Whitman Day and Clint Eastwood Day! A pair of complicated and flawed but compelling and defining American artists. #poetry #film #twitterstorians…
It's easier to recognize Eastwood's flaws since he's with us today, talking to fake Barack Obamas and whatnot. But over the last few years we've certainly come to understand Whitman's own uglier sides.…
But both of these men & their works contain multitudes, much of which still has a great deal to offer us. Whitman's "Democratic Vistas," for example, is an anthem for a more inclusive vision of America.…

wut is @rickriordan thinking??

"Saying 'I am not racist!' is simply declaring that you deny your own biases and refuse to work on them."🤦

assuming fans are racist cuz they don't like a casting choice is insane, who is giving this guy PR advice??…
@rickriordan Rick, relax,

It's the internet, there are always some that hate ur thing, U don't need to go nuclear on them,

calling ur loyal audience as hateful bigots is an awful way to start a show
#PercyJackson #rickriordan #wokeaf #politics #news @BoundingComics…
It is doubly painful cuz I know how hard @rickriordan worked to land a faithful adaptation of his books,

to watch him stab himself in the back over the dumbest of reasons is too much pain for me to bear watching… #percyjackson #books #movies #film

i get why some people feel differently

there's a scene early in the 2nd act of the film where Chavez claims that most universes give free food,

some people use this as evidence of wokery,
what they're missing is Raimi excoriiates her social justice claim,

immediately after its shown she's wrong & making assertions based on her short lived experience

a rebuttal on wokeness, not a confirmation
effectively showing her naivety… #DoctorStrange2
That's how Dr Strange 2 operates,

whether its the cameo characters, or Dr Strange or Wanda,

characters make claims & Raimi shows how these characters are wrong in their ideas & philosophy

Not a confirmation of them,
this isn't woke, this is Anti-Woke

you guys are going to hate me for this
My latest review for the @FDRLST 🥳

Sam Raimi’s ‘Doctor Strange 2’ Is An Anti-Woke Masterstroke🤯

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the best MCU film since ‘Endgame.’🪄🧙‍♂️… #mcu #doctorstrange #drstrange #DoctorStrangeInTheMultiverseOfMadness
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is the latest entry in the MCU & a direct sequel to the 2016 original.

However, Strange 2 is its own thing continuing the themes from the Disney Plus shows “WandaVision” and “What-If.”

The relationship between Florida & Disney started
in 1965 when Walt began buying up worthless swampland in what was then the middle of nowhere

Disney wanted land, power, and control and they wanted it cheap!… #disney #florida #reedycreek #politics #news
Wasn't just cuz Walt wanted to build another Theme-Park,

“Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow”

Disney wanted to build a self-sustaining 'imagineered' city where folks would live, work & play under the auspices of Disney… #disney #epcot
So under that premise, the Florida Legislature let Disney have independent autonomy under the

Reedy Creek Improvement Zone

Where Disney would be its own county gov, run its own police, fire, sanitation, etc without any of that messy local political oversight #disney #florida
