DJ Spooky's Rebirth of a Nation is a film project based on a remix of D.W. Griffith's infamous 1915 film Birth of a Nation. The original film was based on a novel and theater play by Thomas Dixon entitled The Clansman - essentially what Dj Spooky is doing is applying dj technique to cinema in a way that parallels, deconstructs and remixes the original. Thus Rebirth of a Nation DJ Spooky's Rebirth of a Nation has been touring for several years and has drawn acclaim around the world. From the Herod Atticus Theater at the base of the Acropolis in Greece, to the London IMAX - Europe's largest movie screen - Dj Spooky has presented the remix as an engagement with film, music, and contemporary art. He likes to think of it as "film as found object" in the same sense that artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, and David Hammons, amongst many others, have fostered creative investigations into the idea of found objects, cinema, and "appropriation art." .

Adam P (jp) wrote: 'Dear Mr. Watterson' is documentary that chronics the famed cartoonist's most popular comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. The film plays out like a love letter. It includes tons and tons of interviews from average Joe's who enjoyed the comic strip as well as a few notable names including fellow cartoonists and Seth Green. They all explain why the comic helped them grow and what they loved about it, and that's great and all but by the end of the film that's really all the content we're given. Beyond countless interviews by people who continuously say they enjoyed the comic and that it was a masterpiece, they're just wasn't enough to the movie besides that. Instead of feeding us facts or information that most documentaries do, it instead just says I love you. The film really doesn't document Calvin and Hobbes, because to document is to tell about its history and the film simply didn't do that. Sure, the film is fairly sweet but after 20 minutes it simply becomes sour. It doesn't hold your interest, no matter how comfy it may be. It simply would've worked better as a half hour special rather than as a full length film. There's just not enough content presented to justify a feature length. All and All, 'Dear Mr. Watterson' would've served better as a half hour special rather than as a feature length film. It overdoses on love and lacks any real content or information that makes for strong documentaries. C- 6/29/14'Dear Mr. Watterson' is unrated. It's appropriate for 10 and up, but outside of Calvin and Hobbes fans, they may not show much interest in this one.

(something tell me that was the mom?s choice..) as kids & currently working at a steel factory in a coastal Australian town. Sean is the nly one to get the chance to be part of a tap show in Sydney but doesn?t last long as he gets in row with one of the lead dancer (who he?s better, Younger & better looking than) Mitch is out liftin cars so he can get the truck he wants. When it comes to the industrialized tap.. makes it a lot more entertaining than just a regular tap dancing recital. (I took tap dancing , this movie amused me more than when I was in the class. Plus the choreography was so much better than the older classes. Mmm wonder if I could try some of those moves out..) Well Sam?s character & this other character named huey (what a dorky name for someone that?s suppose to be badass.. are somewhat at war with each other so there?s many levels to the movie, to me original when it comes to creativity.. I have to give the guy credit for doing this in a steel mil if that?s for real (I think its based on a real person?s story) so I?ll give this one a B cause it was funny, Dramatic & well one part just about gave me a heart attack.

I feel like our new generation is spoiled with better details and graphics, but this film must have been ground breaking for its time.3.5 Stars
Tony P (ca) wrote: Early 1970s UK horror from Amicus productions who were more known for their horror anthology films such as Asylum and The Beast Must Die.Here the film isn't an anthology but a straight horror cum period drama.Set in the 18th Century this film focuses on a rich family haunted by demons from the family past some fifty years prior.The demons involve graphic scenes of rape and limb dismemberment resulting in a severed hand cropping up in several scenes involving the supposed madness of Stephanie Beacham's character Catherine Fengriffin.However after a good hour we find she isn't mad at all but the victim of a vendetta resulting from the barbaric acts of her newly related ancestor grandfather (Herbert Lom as Henry Fengriffin).Peter Cushing makes a brief appearance as surprise, surprise a doctor.Cushing (the legend that he is) gets top billing for a few minutes appearance in the film that could have been filmed in a day.The film is slow moving until the story of the Fengriffin family unravels in the final act.The credits at the beginning reveal the story is based on a book Fengriffin. One wonders if is in print?The review of Cushing work goes on.
