I love video games. And being someone who thinks about movies 24/7, I really love video games based on movies. Unfortunately, that seems to be one of the areas in the video game world where very few games actually end up being any good. When there are [...]
I don’t get the opportunity to review independent films nearly as much as I would like. I love the efficiency of indie films and the inventiveness and creativity a small budget forces out of filmmakers. It often makes for very intriguing storytelling, [...]
It is a shame more people are not aware of short films. Often short films can be just as enjoyable if not more so than a feature film and it requires incredible creativity to tell a story in what is often such a short amount of time. So whenever I get a [...]
In the past couple of years, and in this fall to come, TV has taken to adapting popular films into television series. Bates Motel, Fargo, and Teen Wolf are among many that seem to be doing very well and this fall we get adaptations of films like Minority [...]
Short films are an art form that still does not get the love it deserves. You can often get just as much satisfaction from a 5 or 10 minute film as from a full length film and often the makers of short films have to be much more ingenious, imaginative and [...]
There are only a handful of shows on TV right now that I will not miss…ever. Justified, Strike Back, Bates Motel and Hannibal come to mind. And then there is Banshee. From producer Alan Ball (Six Feet Under), the HBO/Cinemax cult hit series continues to [...]
Outside of the original Saga films, I really think the animated television show Star Wars: The Clone Wars is some of the best material the franchise has to offer. With an epic story arc, beautiful animation and loads of action, it has everything a Star [...]
While Alan Ball’s resume may not be as long as some in Hollywood, what he has produced has had a significant impact on entertainment and television in particular. In 1999 Ball won an Oscar for his screenplay for American Beauty.
There are many classic comedy series in the history of television from the days of I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners up to modern classics like Seinfeld and Modern Family. But in the truly golden days of television comedy was king and the sheer amount of [...]
Aaron Sorkin is one of the most successful writers in Hollywood and an award winning television producer as well. Although his list of writing credits is not long, it is the quality that is impressive having written the screenplays for A Few Good Men, [...]
There are a handful of TV shows in pop culture that arguably define each decade. All in the Family for the 1970’s. The Cosby Show for the 1980’s. Seinfeld for the 1990’s. One of the other shows that really defined the 1980s for many people was a [...]
It is all the rage lately to make TV shows from popular movies. From Dusk Til Dawn. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Hannibal. Fargo. About a Boy. The list goes on. But for my money one of the best interpretations on the small screen has been Anthony Cipriano’s [...]
For fans of TV, it is ironic that the company that seems to be revolutionizing how we watch it is Netflix, which isn’t even a network at all. The internet company has pretty much singlehandedly been responsible for the new fad of binge watching: watching [...]
Saturday Night Live alumni have a mixed bag of results when they transition from the show to sitcoms or feature films. Some become trite and forgettable almost immediately, some go on to films that just should not have been made, and some find great success.
Marvel Studios are brilliant when it comes to the creation and marketing of their properties as films. They had some huge hits with Iron Man and Captain America: The First Avenger but really threw the whole industry for a spin when they pretty much [...]
As you often hear adults say nowadays, when we were kids we played outside all the time. That is true, we did, but we were also TV addicts just as much as kids today. I couldn’t get enough of my regular sitcoms growing up.

Fatal Pictures, who we love here at Fountain Pop for their disturbing short films WORM, FAMILIAR, HEIR, REMOTE & THE LAST HALLOWEEN, are back with a new short, Hang Up! starring Robert Nolan, Astrida Auza & Jane Pokou. The story is described as [...]
