Mechanic Resurrection

January 19, 2015

As all of my regular readers know, I have been shooting Mechanic Resurrection in Thailand since November of last year. In fact, I have been here mostly since the end of July, both prepping and now shooting the movie. Accordingly, I have not been too involved with politics and have left my other writers to fill in for me on those issues.

The Interview

It is with a sense of “deja vu” that we watch the spectacle of threats, cowardice and censorship on display at SONY PICTURES regarding the release of the motion picture “The Interview.” Yes, there’s nothing new under the sun.

The Interview by Sony Pictures

December 18, 2014
The Interview

After making “The Great Dictator” in 1939 with his own money, Charlie Chaplin faced a major problem. No Hollywood studio was willing to release his film because it greatly lampooned not only Hitler, but Mussolini as well. They had two fears. One was business. Throughout the 30s, studios were very careful not to make films that were critical of Hitler or the Nazi party so as not to disrupt the lucrative German film market.

Trick or Treat

October 31, 2014
Trick or treat

Actually Halloween is one of the oldest holidays still celebrated. As I said its origins can be traced back to the Celtics almost 2000 years ago. The Druids regarded November 1 as New Year’s Day. It was known as Samhain, (pronounced sow’-en), which literally meant the end of summer. It was a time for celebrating the year’s harvest and for honoring the dead. The Celts believed that all laws of time and space were suspended during this time, allowing spirits to roam the earth and intermingle with the living, so they built raging fires and made offerings to appease these restless spirits.
