EDITORIAL: My Love/Hate Relationship With ‘The Ring’

Hi, I’m Senior Staff Writer Justin Proper and I am completely terrified of The Ring. This is not a joke, this is an honest confession from an avid horror lover about one of the only movies to ever scare me. I have only seen the film in it’s entirety three times. Once in theaters, once a year after that to face my fears, and then I never watched that motherfucker again until tonight.

Even now as I write this (an endeavor I took part in at this hour to distract myself) I am overly aware of every little sound …

MOVIE REVIEW: John Dies At The End

Film: John Dies At The End
Director: Don Coscarelli

Cult films are quite a conundrum. Some of them are brilliant in every way but still somehow considered sub-par, while others are obviously lacking in many areas but considered genius anyways. In either case, cult movies end up with a large, and usually rabid, fan base ready to defend the film to the death. John Dies At The End will likely be no exception, as this film has “cult classic” written all over it.…

HOW BAD IS IT?!: Last Ounce Of Courage

Movies are the number one source of entertainment according to a statistic I just made up. Everyone loves going to the movies. It’s a standard date night, and has helped millions of teens awkwardly hold hands in the dark. Movies are a great escape from reality, and help people relieve the stress of their lives. Unfortunately every once in a while a movie gets released that ruins the experience…

I hate politics. Everything about them frustrates me to no end. Attack ads, controversy, this side versus that side, it is all completely ridiculous. When I heard that there was a …

EDITORIAL: “48 Frames Per Second: Advancement or Fad?”

Recently Peter Jackson and James Cameron have come out supporting a new film technology: shooting movies at 48 frames per second instead of the traditional 24 frames per second of film. For people in the film industry that sentence has a lot of meaning and implications, but for most other people it is just gibberish. Since this is such a big deal and will be discussed heavily in the upcoming year we here at the UTG Film department have decided to try and help clear up some of the confusion and explain what everyone is talking about.

Why remake something the majority of the planet still remembers and loves deeply when there are tons of films that deserve a chance to be as great as modern technology and skill can make them? If you agree, this column is for you.

Hollywood has a fascination with putting professional …
