Let's clarify the new forum organization...

movie title threads only (i.e. only discussion of individual movies)
Now Showing
Other Movies
The Grapevine

If it's not a movie title thread, it goes somewhere else. (Most likely in News & Theory.)

Please see the forum descriptions for guidance.

argh!  change!  so ... many... topics....
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

it's much simpler now. here's a rule of thumb to help:

the grapevine - stuff actually comin out soon with trailers and all.
now showing - movies already out.
other movies - every other movie not showing currently, coming soon, or in a director forum. some threads will be moved to here after one year in now showing (around when first seen on cable).
News & Theory - lists, articles, abstract/pointless film discussion that had no home before.
endless 'nothing is what it seems'-isms

Welp,  my name is JM Villegas, coming outta central coast cali, turned 18 in June '05, cinemaphile since I can remember, Made the councious decision that I wanted to be a filmmaker at the age of 13.
Stumbled upon Xixax through the original PTA.com. I looked up the post about PTA's house and someone (can't remember who) had a potato bug avitar, and having such a bug-phobia as-i-do, it was enough to keep me off for awhile. Jump a year or two later, PTA.com had ceased to be, and all that was left was a Xixax link. I gave it another go and have been quite happy since...
This is a great site and am happy to be a part of it and will treat it with upmost respect.
yr. brother in arms,
JM Villegas
Xixax sur-name,

hallo.  since coming across your site while searching for gossip about movies in pre-production or production that weren't always biased or slanted in a positive light (i.e. aintitcoolnews) because of some perc, i have been a fan.

my name is skye thorstenson, and i usually go by mister skye (to quash any gender confusion - although i do like the surprised looks on peoples faces when they meet me and i have no breasts as expected - lol.) i am an experimental filmmaker (i.e. anticipating collective groans for that admission) and i also am a big alternative press comic fan - like ghostworld, etc.

i have a website too that might be more better at introducing who i am as i am pretty much a recluse with no social skills who hires better looking lookalikes to represent me out there in the real worl. :P

http://www.lostheadfactory.com

my favorite films that got me into filmmaking are

Juliet of the Spirits - Fellini
Nights of Cabiria - Fellini
Weekend - Godard
Alice - Jan Svankmeijer
Wild at Heart - David Lynch
Persona - Bergman
Naked Lunch - Cronenberg

but those seem like everyone else's favorites. i guess when a director's good he's good in all books.

lately been a fan of pt anderson and takashi miike.

films that make me groan, i guess the fame hungry starved antics of the guy that made cabin fever who name drops like no tomorrow.

ok. thats me.
