Final Paper

Fri, 27 Apr 2007 19:06:14 +0000

After finishing up reading the Molly Haskell essay “From Relevance to Rape: An Examination of the Female Star in the 1940’s”, I got to thinking about the idea of gender in the classic detective film. In particular I wondered if it applied to a multinational idea of filmmaking. Although Haskell is talking specifically about stars […]

Ask A Ninja: What is Podcasting?

Wed, 28 Mar 2007 03:15:05 +0000

Much can be debated about and its’ social value and relevancy. However, whether your a Catherine Hepburn fan or a June Allison aficianado, there is very little to argue over when it comes to Ninjas and podcasting. The writers have offered a little bit of extremely relevant technical know-how to an aging and out-of-touch […]

The Coping Mechanism in Cinema

Tue, 27 Mar 2007 05:20:45 +0000

During class, we discussed almost ad nauseum the merits of individual characters in the class deamed “Bad version” of Little Women. Is it possible to have a truly outstanding performance in a truly horrendous film? My answer is very rarely. Most of the time, the characters we consider good in a terrible film, are relative. […]

Absolute Truth and Moral Relativism

Tue, 27 Mar 2007 05:19:47 +0000

The Thin Blue Line is a film that focuses on the murder trial and subsequent appeals of a man believed to be convicted wrongly for the murder of a cop. However, what is most interesting about the movie is that Errol Morris chooses to use the entire film as a means to negotiate the nature […]

Yojimbo Streams & The Strange Film Archive

Tue, 27 Mar 2007 05:02:35 +0000

While perusing the internet the other day and working on my Gender analysis, I came across something that was interesting. If you are interested, you can actually watch the full version of Yojimbo and a huge archive of TV shows, commercials and films at What is perhaps the most interesting aspect of this site […]

If You’re Not Ned Beaumont, You’re Probably a Woman

Wed, 24 Jan 2007 20:36:02 +0000

I came to the realization today during the final part of the movie that the film basically breaks its characters down into two subcategories, if you are in the “Glass Key” you are either Ned Beaumont or someone sexually attracted/intimidated by him. Now outside of the obvious moments in which nurses, suspects and seemingly everyone […]

A Substantive Post

Sat, 20 Jan 2007 01:52:39 +0000

Unfortunately, I was sick today and was unable to make it to class but I figured I would leave and examine the idea of a substantive post based on “The Glass Key”. Now not really having any idea the finite details and expectations of what exactly a substantive post should be, I figured it best […]
