Overdue Reviews: 'Strange Days'

Overdue Reviews takes a critical look at tech-centric films that are well-loved, well-loathed or eye-rollingly obscure. When Kathryn Bigelow's 'Strange Days' was released in 1995, it didn't even break $8 million at the box office; with a production budget of $42 million, it was by all accounts a commercial disaster. Even the critically panned 'Johnny Mnemonic' pulled in $19 million, and...

The Oscar Enthusiast's Guide to the 2010 Nominees on Twitter

Groundhog's Day is over (with, apparently, more winter on its way), and let's face it, there's not a whole lot to be excited about in February.

Classic Films Could Get New Depth via 3-D Conversion Tech

The first thing we thought when we saw the advanced 3-D visuals of 'Avatar' was: "When are we going to see this used on a film that does NOT star blue space cats?"

A...

DARPA's 3-D Surveillance Experiments Take a Page from Pandora

Since James Cameron completed 'Avatar' he's probably looking for another project to occupy years of his life. (We're sorry if it makes you depressed to hear that it's really over).
