Re: “'Genius' is a Journey Through Literary 1930s

One thing I really hope to see (or hear) in this film is the mid-atlantic accent. I think it truly defines film of the 1930s and is absolutely essential to emulate! There's a great post about it here: http://www.cmdnyc.com/cities/los-angeles-mid-atlantic-accent

Regardless, im actually quite interested in checking out the movie! I think it'll be decent.

Re: “Why You Might Have a Real Hard Time Crying at 'Me Before You'

Ugh. Sorry to hear this. I thought the book was very well written and I sobbed like crazy reading the ending. I have been looking forward to the movie coming out, but you just confirmed my worst fear of any book made into a movie - the movie rarely delivers what the book did.

Nice correction. Thank God. Too bad the print version holds this blunder for all posterity.

Re: “Elvis & Nixon: Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey are Bang-on, but Movie is Little More Than Novelty

I wonder if they touch on the documented fact that Elvis was on a 3-day meth/speed binge when he came up with the idea; and that he was buzzed t/o their meeting?

Re: “Spotlight: 5 Films Not to Miss at CIFF

Maybe it's on "stand by only" because they're trying to locate an actual film, or even original source material, of Miles Davis as a "legendary saxophonist." ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! It's really too bad no one working at Scene, which is a great publication with great people, didn't catch this beyond egregious error. Miles played trumpet, man! Good God, this is absolutely inexcusable. (Cheadle is even holding the right instrument in the picture they used! Sweet Jesus.)

Re: “"Believeland" and More for International Film Festival's 40th Anniversary

Before Believeland, there was the City of Champions -- which was the moniker carried by the city after the Indians, Browns and American Hockey League Barons captured championships in 1948. An "alternate" logo of Chief Wahoo was created to celebrate the title; eyes peering up at a tilted crown......which was used for a number of years.

Re: “Baseball Documentary "Fastball" is a Must-See for Sports Fans

An October 1970 Sports Illustrated story on Steve Dalkowski summed up the mythical high-heat legend in a few words: "...(he) threw a fastball so hard that Ted Williams never even saw it. No one else could claim that."

Re: “Ski Jump Flick "Eddie the Eagle" is Uplifting in More Ways Than One

Eddie the Eagle said it all during a press conference at the Winter Games: "Where is it written that the Olympics are only for winners?" An East German newspaper had a different take: "Where would the Olympic Games go if the Eddie Edwards of this world took their place in every discipline and so discredited the sporting achievements of all those who far outstrip them in ability?" The IOC quickly sided with the East Germans....in 1990, a new qualifying standard ("Eddie the Eagle Rule") was established: an athlete had to be in the top 30% of international competitors or ranked in the top 50, whichever was fewer. Edwards never again competed in The Games, though he will always be associated with the joy of competing and doing your best -- against all odds.

Re: “Film Spotlight: Race

Jesse Owens encapsulated his biggest fight of them all --- struggling to earn a living when the color gold did not trump the color of his skin --- through several quotes: “After I came home from the 1936 Olympics with my four medals, it became increasingly apparent that everyone was going to slap me on the back, want to shake my hand, or have me up to their suite. But no one was going to offer me a job,” // "I had four gold medals, but you can't eat four gold medals. There was no television, no big advertising, no endorsements then. Not for a black man, anyway.”
