Game the Pool! Between the Lines’ First Annual Oscar Predictions – Writer Categories Only, by Randee Dawn
The writer on a movie set is a second-class citizen, a vestigial remnant that might once have served a purpose but who, once filming has begun, can only get in the way.

American Sniper Review

February 20, 2015
By Jason Purdy
Despite the very patriotic title, and Clint Eastwood directing, American Sniper might not be the fist pumping, eagle riding, hoo rah! Slice of American propaganda pie that you might expect.

Imitation of Life: Why Hollywood won’t tell the stories of female pioneers like Joan Clarke, by Randee Dawn
At some point while watching the “Imitation Game,” probably when Benedict Cumberbatch was not actually on the screen, it occurred to me: Joan Clarke deserves a movie of her own. For those who haven’t seen “Imitation Game,” which is good but more serviceable than great – Joan Clarke (played by Keira Knightley) is the sole […]
