The start of something new, and I am going to throw it into the pile of throwback Thursdays. Since I have no idea where else to put it. I found a list of links here in the blog, basically just things that I wanted to write about. About %10 percent don’t work, And I have tried to google the title and they just don’t show up anywhere. Interesting a lot of the digg links do not work, and I try to google the title and nothing. But anyways, alas, Peter Iliff Says He’s Writing ‘Point Break 2’. And come to find out five years later, he actually is not writing a point break two. Or nothing has been in production based on his imdb page. But this made me realize that I do in fact like his writing. I loved Varsity Blues, I loved Patriot Games, those were two well written movies, but of course Point Break.
But this is besides the point, how come people care more about directors or actors in movies. When really they should be following the cinematographers, or the writers. These are the two people who do more for movies than directors. Great they can make sure that the actor is on cue, most of the time these actors do it themselves and the director just says cut.
You know which cinematographer I most love? Emmanuel Lubezki, he has done the visuals for some of the most beautiful movies of all time. From A Little Princess, to The New World, to The Tree of Life. This is the man you should be following, and praising everything he does. Who cares about Peter Jackson’s directing, when really Andrew Lesnie is the man you should be paying attention to. But when some of Andrew Lesnie’s, movies list include Babe: Pig in the City, I Am Legend, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes (but also all of Peter Jackson’s movies), you sort of understand a little bit.
