beckyroode: 1946 The Best Years of Our Lives follows three men as they return from serving in World War II. After being away from their loved ones for so long it takes quite a bit of adjusting to fall back into a routine at home. All three men are haunted by their time overseas and how things were before the war. The movie shows the struggles of love, work, and disabilities.

10 Best Documentaries of 2011 →
soundonsight: Documentaries have come a long way in the past twenty years, especially in the past decade. Ten years ago, I would have been at a loss for words had you asked me to name ten “great” documentaries released in a single year. Documentary film has developed into a popular and visible form of entertainment, while having a bigger effect on society, usually addressing important...

karipotterforlife: Why are all these people hating on New Girl and saying that Hollywood is making it look like being “dumb” is cute? I just gotta say, FIRST, Jess Day is NOT “dumb.” She’s a teacher, idiots. She doesn’t act dumb either. She’s just quirky and different. I’m sure people think the things you do are…
The Death of Film
wlmager: Someone somewhere is holding the last celluloid movie camera ever made. It probably isn’t me, as I’ve never made a film on film. Perhaps too late now. Instead I can whack up the gain on a Sony F3 to 30db for a skeuomorphic film grain effect. Swings and roundabouts. http://magazine.creativecow.net/article/film-fading-to-black ...

Steve Jobs and John Lasseter, 1995 →
justmaybeperhaps: It’s rare to see Steve Jobs speak about his company Pixar. Here’s an interview where he does that with John Lasseter and Charlie Rose in 1995 following the completion of Toy Story. Jobs gets the release date of Snow White wrong by nine years, but nobody’s perfect. (Thanks, Chris Padilla)’ Charlie Rose is a really pain in the patella in this interview but I found it really...
