Howdy folks!  It's The Kendog!

 

In honor of the enormously entertaining car-crash-fest that is FAST & FURIOUS 6 I thought it would be a fun idea to put forth and discuss the best five car chases in movie history.  Keep in mind that this is my subjective list and certainly open to interpretation.  That's what makes these things so much fun.  Feel free to chime in on the comments section or check in at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Howdy folks! It’s The Kendog!

 

I have to admit: back in 2001 when the original THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS arrived on the scene, I initially dismissed it as a dull, somewhat pretentious POINT BREAK rip-off, complete with clichéd characters, insipid dialogue, and over-choreographed action scenes that left me in a perpetual state of “meh.” But then something happened on the way to the traditional box office cash grab: the movies started to get better, starting with FAST AND FURIOUS (the fourth film for those of you counting at home) and continuing all the way through the latest, bugnuts insane sixth chapter entitled FAST & FURIOUS 6.   And what a ride it is.

I’m not much of a Trekker. I consider myself more of a casual fan, so the canon of the original series really doesn’t mean that much to me. I appreciate the ideas brought forth by the original cast and crew of the sixties television series without treating each episode as gospel. So when J.J. Abrams turned Star Trek on its head in 2009, I thought it was great. Changing the timeline gave Abrams the freedom to reboot the whole universe and do whatever he wanted. With his second effort, STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS, he succeeds in pushing his Trek universe forward in a most entertaining fashion.

DOG'S MOVIEHOUSE: "42" AND "GATSBY" TWO DIFFERENT SIDES OF THE SAME PERIODIC COIN! PDF Print E-mail

 421

Howdy folks! It’s The Kendog with a little something different this time.

 

Instead of hitting the standard review, I’m going to take the opportunity to do a little compare and contrast on two films that qualify as period pieces. One is the excellent 42 released a few weeks ago. The other is flashy Aussie director Baz Luhrmann’s take on THE GREAT GATSBY. While both films feature exquisite attention to detail in depicting their respective time periods (42 in the late 1940s; GATSBY in the Roaring 20s), one film serves as an emotionally effective moment in the history of racial integration while the other has all the emotional resonance of an episode of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES.

Howdy Folks!  It's the Kendog with some sad news!

Ray Harryhausen passed away this week at the ripe young age of 93!  For those of you who don't know the name, Mr. Harryhausen was the master of a filmmaking technique known as stop-motion animation.  You youngsters probably don't realize that before the wonders of CGI, science fiction filmmakers had to either use puppets or stop-motion models.  Stop motion animation is a painstaking technique that involves creating a model with clay and wire.  You would then move the model a microscopic amount and take one shot with your camera.  Rinse and repeat until, several thousands of shots later, you have a moving creature.  It took months to sometimes film a single scene and required both exquisite skill and patience.
