But with the discovery that they were expecting their first child, Sanchez says, came a sense of direction, the feeling that he could channel everything he was feeling into his work without recourse to fiction and fantasy. First, though, he revealed why he had paid homage to the late film director Wes Craven , whose death two days earlier Sanchez had noted on Twitter : "You were a huge inspiration to us, Wes Craven. Wes Craven was the auteur of some notoriously violent slasher films. It's really about the creation of Freddy Krueger, honestly. Not too long ago, I put out a song on a seven-inch with a solo project of mine, called "Elm Street Lover Boy," which was about: Had Freddy Krueger truly loved Nancy. For so long, I had always put Freddy Krueger up there with Darth Vader — someone that was huge, coming up. Whether it was Wes' writing of the script or Robert [Englund]'s delivery of the character, I don't know, but something about that creation,... George Lucas has that with Star Wars, and Wes and Robert have that with Freddy Kreuger: They're just these characters that will always resonate for the rest of my life. Even when you go to see the not-so-great Star Wars prequel films,.
"Movies are too damn long" is a pretty common modern movie complaint. When Transformers: Age Of Extinction clocks in at 165 minutes, I can understand the sentiment. But what’s the perfect length of a film. History is littered with great films that are 90 minutes or under. But what about those films that don’t get shouted about enough, all with a length that won’t give you a hernia watching. Well here’s my take on the top 50 underrated films with a 90 minute or under runtime. As to what makes a film underrated, that’s a highly subjective area. For me, they are films that were never appreciated upon release, and to this day remain unknown to the majority of the film watching public. It seems fitting that we should start this top 50 with a film that is exactly 90 minutes long, and takes place in real time too. The plot is pretty nonsensical, the action far-fetched and a bit silly, but there’s no denying the real-time action adds a layer of tension and dynamism to the proceedings and makes for a compelling watch.
What if right now there is a new product among the recent wave of new direct-to-fan promotion products that will change the outcome for your band. Products that disrupt have four “tells”, and they appear early on. We'll look at how they appeared in the invention of the chronometer and use them to see if the new digital promotion products offered by Apple, Spotify, Pandora and Facebook will... A device called an astrolabe let them plot their latitude – north-to-south… but there was nothing to plot longitude – east-to-west. In 1768 Captain Cook set sail from England with orders to discover what lay in the Pacific, and he had a new device called a chronometer that let him plot longitude from anywhere on the globe. Over the next 10 years he used it to chart most of the Southern Pacific Ocean… and also claim quite a bit of new territory for the Crown - Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Hawaii and South Georgia. That changed the outcome for Britain and made Captain Cook, if not a king, certainly a hero… but then he got killed by Hawaiian natives in 1779. Predicting that a device to plot longitude would be disruptive wasn't difficult. Here are the four "tells” that showed early on who the inventor would be. Tell #1 – Solving big problems requires new skills, so inventors comes from outside.
