The Walk – A Charming Ascent into a Kind of Madness!

The Walk - Poised

On August 6th, 1974, Philippe Petit, a French high wire artist, hung a wire between the twin towers of the World Trade Center and walked it not once, not twice, but three-and-a-half times. The story of the famous walk was the subject of an Oscar®-winning documentary, Man on Wire.

The Walk tackles the subject somewhat more intimately. Based on Petit’s book, To Reach the Clouds, Robert Zemeckis’ film approaches the story from Petit’s point of view. It is both charming and terrifying (not a movie to see in IMAX if you have a fear of heights – the 3D is… intimidating).

First Look: Scary Stuff From Goosebumps!

03

Remember the Goosebumps TV series? Aimed at kids but smart enough for adults? Yeah, that’s the one.

It’s getting a movie that uses the author (played by Jack Black) as the entryway into story. It seems that R.L. Stine  wrote about real monsters and keeps them from his readers by trapping them in his books. Odeya Rush plays his daughter, Hannah, and Dylan Minnette plays Zach Cooper – who accidentally sets the monsters free. Now the three of them have to recapture the monsters!

Check out four more photos and the official synopsis of the film after the jump. Goosebumps will premiere on August 7, 2015.

Anonymous –Historical Flummery as Fun Political Thriller!

938495 -Anonymous

Roland Emmerich – he of Independence Day, 10,000 B.C. and 2012 [to name but a few] – takes one of the many theories on who really wrote the works of Shakespeare and turns it into a political thriller that blames all manner of events on… writers?

Sony Releasing Cheaper 3D Televisions

Sony Bravia 3D TV

They really are pushing the 3D TV “revolution” this fall – too bad there’s no 3D content to actually watch. Sony is adding 3D to it’s new midrange NX800 Seriesof Edge LED lit HDTVs that came out earlier this year.  The 3D will add $200 to the price tag and will include two 3D Blu-ray movies and a voucher to download free 3D games on the PlayStation Network.  The televisions will include an ambient light sensor and Sony’s Bravia Internet Apps. I don’t know, every time I’ve seen a Sony 3D TV display it’s been pretty substandard compared to Mitsibushi and Samsung’s 3D TV Offerings and Sony is crazy with their pricing – 46Inch  will set you back $3,000, 55 inch – $3,700 clams and the monster 60 inch will set you back $4,700 and they don’t even give you a free set of Glasses!
