Fri, 12/16/2016 - 07:45

Movie distribution has changed drastically in recent years. Movies are no longer shipped to theaters on heavy reels of film, they're delivered on an encrypted hard drive or even beamed down from a satellite.

Thu, 12/15/2016 - 11:50

A lot has been made about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first “stand-alone” Star Wars film, being the grittiest and darkest of the overall franchise, and this isn’t unfounded. There is darkness.
