Did you enjoy 'Mermay'?A few words on "Splash"and "Siren"

by Nathaniel

You guys.I only just recently learned about "Mermay"in which you celebrate mermaids during the month of May.How did I not know about this?We could have been celebrating mermaids in film and television all month long!The least we could have done is pay tribute toTully's mermaid dream imagery.Because that film did NOT get enough attention.Jason Reitman + Diablo Cody + Charlize Theron = dream team (see also:Young Adult)...

I thought I could whirlpool up a top ten list of movie mermaids but realized I hadn't seen some key texts likeMr Peabody and the Mermaid(1948),Night Tide(1961),the silent filmThe Mermaid(1904) and a few others.Sadly merman films seem all but nonexistent...

Q&A: I'm Not There.I'm Right Here With My Cat(s)

Your questions a few days back really got me going so you're getting two weeks of Q&As out of them.Here's the first episode with eight questions answered on Hamilton,I'm Not There style biopics,dinner with movie characters and more...

IBIS: Cast This!The film version ofHamilton

NATHANIEL: Since they'll surely make us wait another 10 years for any movement on the film we'd have to suggest actors we've never heard of who maybe even haven't started acting yet so we can't think on this.I will say though that when everyone was so sad that the original cast was leaving the show I felt like hugging everyone and going "it'll be fine if you see replacements!"because the star of Hamilton is really the musical itself,if you ask me.Yes,the actors were great but it's one of those things that's so perfectly calibrated to be its best self,that the show is really the star.I swear to you.So please enjoy it when it goes on tour somewhere near you.

Plus the wait for aHamiltonmovie gives Hollywood time to invest in some actors of color as future stars so that they don't panic when it's time to cast the movie and realize they don't know enough of them to fill this sprawling movie.

my favorite western RED RIVER (1948)SONJA: What is your least favorite genre?

I try to love all genres since they're all capable of greatness.My answer to this when I was younger would have easily  been "westerns"or "horror"but I've seen enough classics now from each of those genres that I have newfound respect.I guess I will say "war films"in general.Yes,there are great ones...but too often it's just an excuse to indulge in manly violence for manly violence's sake,which is never really a thrill for me.

But if I can extend to television throw out that entire answer and just say "medical procedural".While watching TV the other night I saw a commercial for Chicago Med which I guess is a new show?And I was like REALLY?ANOTHER MEDICAL PROCEDURAL?AND ALSO: ANOTHER MEDICAL PROCEDURAL SET IN CHICAGO WHERE HALF OF THEM HAVE BEEN SET?!?"It actually made me angry.The showbiz community is sometimes just entirely allergic to trying new things...which is strange considering it's a profession which can only exist by harnessing creativity.

RYAN T: Since the Olympics is happening in Rio,do you have a favorite Brazilian film,actor,or filmmaker?
