Lessons in Adaptation, Scott Pilgrim

Lessons in Adaptation: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

A few years back, I was in an introductory filmmaking program. This was not crucial to my degree (which is in rocks), but it was fun, and if we finished up with our projects for the day with time to spare, the instructors would show us films they thought demonstrated parts of the craft uncommonly… Continue reading Lessons in Adaptation: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Popping down to Australia to talk to people… Continue reading Failures – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Nine

The Other Shoe – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Eight

Well, I can't really say I'm surprised. Given the recent string of decent episodes and hard-hitting plot points, it was unlikely the show was going to keep up its momentum all the way through to the end. The accumulation of bad past decisions has caught up to the series, overtaking much of the good will… Continue reading The Other Shoe – Preacher, Season Four, Episode Eight
