The Best Movies About Time Travel, and Why <i>About Time</i> Isn't One of Them
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I just popped in to an advance screening of Richard Curtis's upcoming time-travel rom-com, About Time and left over two hours later wishing I could go back in time to pick another film. For some reason, thinking about Mr. Curtis's work, including this latest effort, a whole bunch of words beginning with "c" come to mind: cute, corny, commercial, cliché, calculated, sometimes clever... but not often enough. Clearly About Time is calculated to appeal to young women in their 20s. I could tell because my screening was filled with such "tastemakers," who will be expected to venture forth and encourage their friends to see this tedious, saccharine outing. I even overheard one such lady pronounce the film "cute" as I was bolting for the exit and a well-earned martini. Bingo, I thought. The plot concerns Tim (Domhnall Gleeson), a pale, gangly, ginger-haired youth who, on turning 21, is informed by his dad (Bill Nighy) that all males in the family have the power to go back in time, as ...

Test your Oscar trivia IQ
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
Test your Oscar trivia IQ The most surprising snubs among this year's nominees were in the directing category. Only two of the Directors Guild of America's five nominees also got Oscar nods. "Argo" has been winning the top prize at awards ceremonies all season, but DGA winner Ben Affleck was snubbed by the Oscars. If Daniel Day-Lewis wins his third best actor Oscar this year, he will stand on his own as the most honored actor in the category's history. What two men would he tie for most acting wins overall by a male actor? "Silver Linings Playbook" has pulled off an impressive feat by earning nominations in all four acting categories. What two movies won three acting Oscars? What three films are tied for the most wins, and what is that record number? What is the highest worldwide grosser among the best picture nominees (as of the start of February)?

Writers Give Advice On How To Pen The Perfect Love Poem
Huffington Post - about 4 years
There are many ways to show affection on Valentine's Day. Sure, you could make your darling smile by bringing flowers. You could even shower you sweetie with gifts of perfume or chocolate. But nothing, nothing professes profound romantic love more deeply than a poem. It's a true expression of one's inner feelings that when done right can intensify the bonds of love and send hearts a-fluttering. When done wrong, however, a love poem can be embarrassing -- even laughable. Here at The Huffington Post we want to do all we can to encourage the development of the kind of verse that is treasured in a lockbox, rather than crumpled in a trash can. So we reached out to several Detroit-area poets and musicians to get their insights on crafting a meaningful love poem. Check out the slideshow below to see what Kresge fellow Kim Hunter, performance poet jessica Care moore and rocker and writer Josh Malerman (of the High Strung) had to say on the subject.

Business Review USA - almost 5 years
BREA, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2012) - Management Technologies' Ray W. Stratton, PMP, EVP, will be moderating a panel discussion on the application of Earned Value Management (EVM) to Agile software development projects. The panel discussion will be held on May 30, the first day of EVM World(R) 2012 in Naples, FL. Agile Development's key principles include rapid deployment of required capabilities. The capabilities are continually updated by new/revised stakeholder interests. Developed in 2001, Agile Development is promoted as a means to provide desired capabilities sooner and more closely aligned with an evolving environment and revised needs. EVM, developed in the 1960s, looks for stable requirements, defined budgets, a detailed schedule, defined work scope, and a high degree of planning and organization. Can the last century's principles of EVM apply to Agile projects in the 21st century? Are all EVM principles applicable? Does EVM have t ...

Economic benefits of hunting in Iowa touted
Eastern Iowa Government - almost 5 years
DES MOINES – Declines in pheasant and deer numbers, wildlife habitat and interest among young people are threatening a hunting industry in Iowa that advocates said Wednesday generates $288 million in spending and supports 6,200 jobs statewide each year. “The ripple effect is nothing short of amazing,” said Libbey Patton, tourism director for the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and co-leader of a newly formed Hunting Works for Iowa (www.HuntingWorksForIA.com) partnership of business groups and outdoor enthusiasts. “Hunters bring a lot of money to our town and many others and that results directly in more jobs and more tax revenue at the local level.” Jim Henter, president of the Iowa Retail Federation, cited estimates from the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation indicating that each year about 251,000 people hunt in Iowa, spending an average of $1,140 per season on trip-related expenses such as lodging, food, gas and gear. That activity results in more than $288 million in yearly sp ...

'A Streetcar Named Desire': 25 Things You Didn't Know About The Marlon Brando Movie
Moviefone Blog - almost 5 years
Hey, Stellaaaaa! Fire up the Blu-ray player! 1951's "A Streetcar Named Desire" marked the 60th anniversary of its release last September. Now, seven months later, fans will have the opportunity to relive the classic flick with a special-edition Blu-ray release. That's as good an excuse as any to revisit this landmark film, which opened up Hollywood to movies with strictly adult content and -- thanks to Marlon Brando's legendary performance -- Method acting. The film forced the medium into a new, raw, emotional, mature kind of expression, and, six decades later, it has lost none of its power to shock and astonish. Of course, what went on behind the scenes of the steamy Southern story was nearly as dramatic as the on-screen tale. Read on for more about the film's casting (can you imagine Bette Davis as Blanche?), Vivien Leigh's witty takedown of director Elia Kazan, and the filmmakers' epic battle with censors that changed forever the way films are made. 1. Director Elia Kazan had f ...
