CINEJABBER: Devil’s Night in Motown

Posted by · 1:00 pm · October 30th, 2010

Catch up with the idea behind these weekend posts here. I’m in Detroit for the game tomorrow, so movies are somewhat out of sight, out of mind.  Somewhat. As I drive around town, I’m reminded of some singular opportunities here for the film industry.  I don’t really know the particulars of filming in Detroit or […]

Many first took notice of the actress […]

CINEJABBER: The “M” word

Posted by · 1:08 pm · September 25th, 2010

I received an email today from a reader addressing a concern I’ve long had at the back of my mind, but I never really figured out a way to deal with it. In a nutshell, we discuss films early, generally before release around these parts, and when a large majority of you get a chance […]
