Movie Title Sequence Spotlight: Rocknrolla

TGIF and Happy last-day-of-the-month, everyone! Instead of the usual scene spotlight, I thought I'd highlight a movie-related art form that often goes unnoticed: the title sequence.

DVD Picks: Slumdog Millionaire & August Rush

They both also share a similar fairy-tale element in …

Scene Spotlight: Superman rescues Lois – Superman: The Movie

This might seem like a completely random choice today, but in fact I'm sort of inspired by Kick-Ass' err... kick-ass box office this weekend.
