STANDING MOVIE SET OF IMPERIAL ROME IN CINECITTA' STUDIOS
CINECITTA' è un complesso di teatri di posa di eccellenza e rilievo internazionale situato lungo la via Tuscolana nella periferia orientale di Roma e attivo dal 1937.
Di proprietà di Cinecittà Luce S.p.A. e in gestione dal 1997 a Cinecittà Studios S.p.A., Cinecittà costituisce il vertice dell'industria cinematografica italiana ma è utilizzata anche per produzioni estere e televisive.
A Cinecittà sono stati girati più di 3000 film, 90 dei quali hanno ricevuto una candidatura all'Oscar, 47 dei quali hanno vinto la prestigiosa statuetta. Celebri registi, nazionali e internazionali, vi hanno lavorato: da Federico Fellini a Francis Ford Coppola, da Luchino Visconti a Martin Scorsese.
CINECITTA' (Italian for Cinema City) is a large film studio in Rome that is considered the hub of Italian cinema.
The studios were founded in 1937 by Benito Mussolini and his head of cinema Luigi Freddi for propaganda purposes, under the slogan "Il cinema è l'arma più forte" (Cinema is the most powerful weapon). The studios were bombed by the Western Allies during World War II. In the 1950s, Cinecittà was the filming location for several large American film productions like Ben-Hur, and then became the studio most closely associated with Federico Fellini.
After a period of near-bankruptcy in the 1980s, Cinecittà was privatized by the Italian government.
On August 9, 2007, a fire destroyed about 3000 m² (32,000 sq. ft.) of the Cinecittà lot and surroundings. The historic part that houses the sets of classics such as Ben-Hur were not damaged, however a good portion of the original sets from the HBO/BBC series Rome were destroyed.
i went to a movie theater to survey for material of my photoessay... umm i havent found what i'm lookin for... and tomoro i have to go to an award photographer event :(
last night Larry and I met up with some family for a dinner in Ambler,Pa, and I had to stop and take a shot of this magnificent old movie theater.
Built in 1928, it fell into sorry disrepair in the late 60's and early 70's. Since then it's been lovingly restored.
As the original 30 foot towering vertical neon sign had been demolished in the late 1960's, an exact replica was constructed by Bartush Signs and funded in part by a Keystone Grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. The neon tower was installed in September, 2005 and officially lit on October 21, 2005.
They sure don't make 'em like they used to!

The truth is my real passion is movies: bad movies, art movies, class “b”, horror movies, chick flicks, you name it.
I love the thrill when I’m sitting at the movie theater and the lights goes down. For 2 hrs (sometimes more, sometimes less) I have the chance of being the bad guy or the good guy (and get the girl at the very end). I cry, laugh, sing, and get a little bit scared or angry (why not).
I hope someday I’ll have the money to continue studying filmmaking and someday, maybe someday I’ll make one myself.
Btw, the guy is watching “Casablanca” :)
I wish to express my gratitude to all the people.

Sorry for the long break, anyways here`s Ironhide from the 2007 Transformers Movie. This was a very tough transformer to make, especially the chest. I tried to make it as screen accurate as possible. I`m really proud how this came out. Fairly stable except the arm section falls off alot when I try to rotate it.

Life is a never ending scene. We keep on rushing with our journey just to realise the point is not to arrive. Have a break and see a movie.

For the movie star party at Pulp Attack, I dressed up like Satine, Nicole Kidman's character in Moulin Rouge.
I think cinema, movies, and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made film were magicians. Francis Ford Coppola
Dire Straits - Making Movies (full album )
We're on the movie set of, "Fury" where it is nearing completion and on it's way to Woodfield Mall in Schaumberg, IL (Chicago). If you want to check out the completed layout, you'll have to see it in person! Rumor has it, Brickmania is opening up it's second retail store there this May!
These are my sister's dolls and they were pretty beat up. I decided to fix 'em up a little and I think they all look so fabulous now! :D
finally had time to watch spidy3 last night, action drama CG combo superhero burffet thing - can't remember how many tears scene on this one but it is more than any superhero movie i've seen.
Anyhow, the thing about this shot is this movie preview, thai luvs making scary movie. I think when thai movie maker made a come back (as in actually made good money from movie), it was scary movie call 'mae nak', and eversince, there are rolls upon rolls of scary movie coming out. They've been variation of success. They tried all sorts of local legendary ghost stories, made up new one, add comedy mix, and now on this recent one, add lots of cute sexy chix. that's their new trick i guess, legs, boobs and freakies. Marketing guys probably came up with this movie plot young hot teenie girl showing lots of skin (then blood) - seven of them. and it might just work to attract this very very large teen target market.
what i don't like is they use a 'kiddie' frightening technique .. u know, frightens you buy sudden loud sound.. quite quite quite.. *BLAAAHHH* .. please, be a bit more creative with the plot.
My Top 10 Favorite Movies at the moment to be exact. If you have followed me for a while, you might remember this: www.flickr.com/photos/99717434@N04/12554370323/
As you can see, quite a lot has changed since then, and movies that were in the top 5 were moved and or removed completely. This is due to me either having a change in taste or me simply seeing new movies since that photo.
These ranks are based on how much I enjoy the movie and how much I have watched each film. AND REMEMBER. These are my FAVORITE FILMS, not the best films ever made. These are just movies that I really enjoy.
I'll be going from Right to Left, starting with....
10. Watchmen: This movie gets a lot of hate, but I love it. Jackie Earl Haley is fantastic as Rorschach, Jeffery Dean Morgan is always a pleasure to see, and the whole film just looks great. Synder may not nail stories, but he can damn sure well make a movie look good. Also a huge fan of the soundtrack. This was moved from the top 5 for two reasons. I've watched some of these others movies a lot more since then, and I liked the other movies better than it, but it still holds a place on my top 10.
9. Guardians of The Galaxy: A surprise for me, this movie shocked me with how much I enjoyed it. Casting is great, movie looks great, but the main reason I love it so much is the soundtrack using the 70's music. Hence this, that's why it is only number 9.
8. The Big Lebowski: I've only seen it twice, but I love this movie so much. It's so damn quotable. Casting and acting in this is perfect. It's also pretty damn funny.
7. Django Unchained: Love Tarantino films. For many of the same reasons of Lebowski, the casting and acting is perfect, it has it's funny moments, it has its offensive moments, and it has its action moments. Just a really enjoyable and entertaining as hell film. It beats Lebowski only by a little, simply because I have watched it more than Lebowski.
6. The Dark Knight: While Bale is my least favorite Batman, Heath Ledger's Joker is what puts this movie on the list. Also love Gary Oldman and Aaron Eckhart in it. Just a fantastically shot, written, scored, and acted movie.
5. The Shawshank Redemption: Ironically, my 5th spot is the movie that I have seen the least on this list, only seeing it once all the way through, and then parts of it for all other viewings. But that's all it needed. This film is just fantastic. Just a great story of triumph and patience.
4. Ghostbusters (1984): It hurts me to have to put the year of the film considering that the trash heap coming out Friday shares the same name. I feel I don't talk about the og Ghostbusters enough, but I love it. You can't go wrong with Bill Murray, and the special effects and writing is great. Over the years as I have grown older and re watched it, I have really come to appreciate it more. And no, I will not be seeing the new "Ghostbusters".
3. Zootopia: If you haven't noticed, I've kind of gotten pulled in by this movie, and I don't really know why. On this list, it is my 3rd most watched, hence it being at 3. I've watched this movie maybe 7 or 8 times all the way through, and then a ton more times to just watch scenes. I'm not even a huge Disney fan, but this movie really hit me. The characters are so likable, the voice acting is on point, the animation is impressive and visually stunning. It also has some kickass references to the Godfather and Breaking Bad. Also, JK Simmons is in it. Can't go wrong with JK Simmons. I've been "made fun of" for liking this movie, and some of the "bullies" (for lack of a better word) have now bitten there tongue as they have seen the movie to, and took back the hate.
2. The Dark Knight Returns: Weird that my 2 and 3 spots are both animated films. Also funny that I have made a whole series of custom figures from each film at 2 and 3. I am considering Part 1 and 2 as one film, although each parts could easily count as there own movies. It's my favorite Batman story, and I love watching this movie. It may be animated, but it is not for kids. Peter Weller did great as Batman, and I also really liked Michael Emerson's Joker. Just an entertaining move that I have watched to many times to count.
1. Jaws: This will always be my #1 favorite film. I doubt it will ever change. I adore this film. Perfect casting, score, effects, writing, and direction. This movie is famously known for being a pain in the ass to make, and it was a better movie for it. People say "the shark looks fake", but I personally think it looks fine. For being made in the 70's, it's damn good. I grew up with this movie, and watched it over and over as a child. I even had it on VHS and had to rewind it over and over before I finally got it on DVD when I got older. The only part that bothered me was the part where Hooper goes into the shark cage. Hell, I wasn't even bothered at the part where the Ben Garner's dead corpse comes out of the side of the boat when Hooper is night diving. Despite this being my favorite film, I have still not made customs of the 3 main protagonist, but that might change soon. I cherish this film as one of my childhood favorites, and as I grew up watching it again, I came to appreciate and love it even more.
Also, here are some honorable mentions: Star Wars ESB, Transformers (2007), Ironman, Smokey and The Bandit, Back To The Future, and The Love Bug.
What do you think? What do you think of my personal favorite films? I know it's long, but it took time to write, so some feedback to what I have written would be greatly appreciated.
