1.  As Hollywood’s Big Day Out approaches, newspapers and journals are filled with predictions and forecasts.  This interesting piece in The Guardian rightly pegs this year’s crop of films as a bunch of old fogies trying to feel relevant in a world where science fiction films and films about newfangled things like Facebook are taken seriously.  And while you’re at it, do check out these awesome portraits of this year’s significant actors posing as iconic villains.

2. In other news, Tinkle comic’s irrepressible simpleton Suppandi is getting his own TV show on Cartoon Network India.  I don’t know about you guys but Suppandi is the fount of my fine sense of humour.

3. Have you always narrated your life story in your head as a noir film? Are the streets always illuminated by gritty-film lighting and are all women untrustworthy dames? If so, you may need this clever little Noir Film Construction Kit to help you along. And while you’re at it, check out this collection of free film noir classics.

4. Nothing screams ‘film geek’ more than writing a long, frame-by-frame analysis of a scene or reading a long, frame-by-frame analysis of a scene.  Tarantino’s a genius; this is well known, but how much of a genius? Read about the infamous ear-cutting scene in Reservoir Dogs at A.V. Club.

5. Your deep and burning questions about this year’s crop of films answered at Screen Rant!
