Debt to Cinema 077: A Simple Plan

There are so many filmmakers out there, both talented and not, that never leave their comfort zone and basically make the same movie over and over again. Sam Raimi is luckily not one of them, capable of filming any type of story, bringing us the perfect Hitchcockian thriller here. This selection was made initially to honor Bill Paxton, but now its a reminder that the zany guy behind The Evil Dead and Spider-Man has plenty more to offer us than genre flicks #IdBuyThatForADollar

Two Cents

Two Cents 065: VR Tech n’ Spec (Feat. Greg Krish)

The episode in which I finally have someone on that knows what VR is so I begin by asking him lots of things about working in the new medium, SanDisk created a 1TB SD card, Palmer Luckey has a fall from grace, Dalian Wanda is teaming with Sony on their tentpoles, music streaming is equally as profitable as sales now, AT&T’s DirecTV net neutrality no-no’s, Pokemon GO and Snapchat’s role in AR’s adoption, and the future of advertising/marketing in the VR age. Plus, Dawson’s Creek, VCRs, lactose intolerance, virtual reality’s lack of content & governance, parents not understanding the dangers of early VR exposure, VR gambling coming to casinos, and almost no film conversation at all.
