Is Alien a rip off of the Mario Bava flick Planet of Vampires?
They say that life imitates art, but what happens when art imitates art? Well, sometimes lawsuits, but most of the time we see great homages to movie scenes taken from classic (and not so classic) films. This often gives the scenes new life in someone else’s vision.

The 2016 Academy Award Nominations came out and unlike previous years, I’m not sure how to react. Over the years, there’s always snubs and disappointments and that comes with any awards but this year seems different. While there are still questionable decisions, it seems that, dare I say it, the Academy might have actually gotten (most of it) right.
The Revenant is the big winner (if there ever could be one) today, leading the way with 12 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. This was not a shock considering it’s been one long awards circuit gushing over the movie. That and no one tries to mess with the movie with a giant bear. Close behind is a great surprise with Mad Max: Fury Road earning 10 nominations. While it has been getting great press and was arguably the best movie of the summer, blockbusters never typically get recognized on this big of scale, especially in the Best Picture category (see: The Dark Knight). The Martian follows with seven nominations, despite director Ridley Scott not snagging one himself (more on that later). Other notables were Spotlight with six nominations and The Big Short (somewhat surprisingly in my opinion) coming in with five nominations.

Kodak rang in the New Year with some promising news. Thanks to movies like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Hateful Eight, film, and I mean real 70mm film, has begun to make its comeback.
For those of you unaware, big name directors banded together back in 2013 to re-amp the dying medium, promising to buy Kodak film; and thankfully it looks like it’s working as the CEO of Kodak, the only remaining motion picture film manufacturer, says the company will actually turn a profit in this new year. After going from losing $100 million a year in the film division, to breaking even the last 3 quarters of 2015, things are really starting to look up for Kodak.
Now, love him or hate him, Quentin Tarantino was loud and proud about using film in his latest movie The Hateful Eight. He even made an in-depth video that screened at Comic-con, explaining how important the film itself is. Check it out here.
