Star Wars in 3D?

With Avatar global 3D successes, Star Wars creator, George Lucas is after his slice of the pie.

Judging by the 100 or so comments in this weeks Guardian article, no one wants to see Star Wars reissued in 3D so that’s why it will be marketed at the kids.

I for one loved the first three and lost all my respect after those turkey prequels. It was like finding out Father Christmas was dad.

Golden Globe Awards nominations

The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards is presented by British comedian Ricky Gervais and as always gives indicators to winners and losers at the Academy Awards later this year. The ceremony is aired this Sunday on NBC at 5pm PST and 8pm EST. I will be covering the event live under the Golden Globe blimp.

Here are this years nominations:

Inside Hollywood Examiner

Kathryn Bigelow is a real female director

Director Kathryn Bigelow could be the first woman to win at the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards for her war drama “The Hurt Locker.” But why has it taken so long?

I remember when Thelma and Louise was released and all these women who had never been to the cinema since their childhood came out to watch the movie. Same thing happened with Sense and Sensibility. There is an audience for us. Hollywood continues to convince the male press that there is no audience for movies made by or starring women. I want to see women characters having as much a good time on screen as their male counterparts but most female characters are relegated to “girlfriend,” “whore,” “wife,” or “mother.” This cinema is incredibly boring and I am sick of formulated unimaginable tales by male directors about men. A great male director enlists as much time and research into his female characters as his male characters. If their women are two dimensional, I’d rather they be left on the cutting room floor.
