A Redeeming Piece of Film Journalism: 6/8/2012

By now your head is probably spinning from reading all of the news about Prometheus. Somehow or another these film blogs keep on coming up with more stuff about the movie. I didn’t know that there was ever that much to know about a film. Interview after interview, set photo and synopsis, spoilers and reviews. By now it has reached a ridiculous fever pitch and I think it would be wise if we all took a step back, took a deep breath, relaxed, and enjoyed some of the other fruits of film journalism that the internet has to offer.

Here is a interesting video article by the fine people at the Museum of the Moving Image. In strictly technical terms the Museum of the Moving Image “advances the public understanding and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media. It does so by collecting, preserving, and providing access to moving-image related artifacts, screening significant films and other moving-image works, presenting exhibitions of artifacts, artworks, and interactive experiences, and offering educational and interpretive programs to students, teachers, and the general public.”

Basically, this is an organization of people who are very passionate about films and media. They take a thoughtful and intelligent approach to film studies, creating a variety of articles, both visual and written, to both stimulate and enrich the mind of the modern film fan

We don’t want to talk about “Prometheus” anymore but I think it would be interesting to check out a visual article MMI did about cult films in general. What is a cult film is and what makes it so culty. Since the whole world of “Prometheus” has its roots in one of the biggest cult films of all time, I think it would be apt viewing. Check it out and leave a response telling use how you liked it.
