Great movies and hard work shouldn’t scare us. they should inspire us to be the best we can be.
Everyone remembers the first time they saw bullet-time. I was in 7th grade, and The Matrix was the first DVD I ever rented, owned, and wore out. It’s a movie I probably have memorized. And even as the sequels expanded upon the world, the magic was never lost.
I saw The Red Shoes at the Ritz in the Bourse (Philadelphia) when I was in high school. I heard it was Martin Scorsese’s favorite movie, and my grandmother had cut out an article on it from The Inquirer to tell me about it.
I grew up in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The only connection our town had to Hollywood is all the guys from Jackass…and M. Night Shyamalan would sometimes use our rolling hills to shoot a movie scene…but M. Night never let us push him in a grocery cart down a hill.
Initial reporting said that no additional filming would occur and new material would largely consist of special effects work, but that clearly has changed.
