Comment on: John Travolta fears for future of film
That's a bit snidey, Anonymous, the jibe about Battlefield Earth. What about Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty...? He is speaking a lot of sense.
Comment on: MGM pacts with Fox on Poltergiest
'They moved the headstones... not the bodies.' Poltergeist is a total classic, a note perfect film. Shame we can't have the original back on the big screen just as it is. Originality wins over remakes every time.
Comment on: Sony to remake A Prophet
A company called Original Film doing a remake? Ah, the irony...
Comment on: Why Sightseers is the British film of the year
You REALLY should go see this film. It isn't like anything else out there. A real original. It made me laugh so much that I wanted to punch the air. It's dark and twisted fun.
Comment on: PGA to bestow Selznick honour on Working Title
That's brilliant news. A big well done to Working Title.
Comment on: Iain Canning on Top of the Lake, See Saw's TV slate and producing future Steve McQueen films
A TV crime drama by Jane Campion?! That is really exciting. With that and The Killing 3 on the way, it's a fantastic time for TV. Bring it on...
Comment on: Screen Yorkshire unveils £15m production fund
Great news for Yorkshire! Hurrar for Screen Yorkshire, and for the remaining people there who have worked so hard to keep things afloat. The region needs them.
Comment on: Industry pays tribute to Bingham Ray
I first met Bingham at EIFF way back in 1995. He was always the friendly face in a room. Will be sadly missed.
Comment on: Hot projects on Screenbase
I can't wait to see The Snowman! It's a stunningly visual (and scary) book - and to have a master like Scorsese direct it is a very exciting prospect. A big thumbs up to Working Title.
Great news for Leeds - and it's a real credit to the festival's short film programmers that the quality of their selections has made it an Oscar shorts qualifying festival. Quality, indeed.
