I just wrote a review of the new film, Babel, for Film School Rejects (I know, it's been awhile): " "I went into the theaters to see Babel not knowing anything about the indie film. I only knew that it starred Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Gael Garcia Bernal, but knew nothing of the plot. So that you have a better idea about this amazing and emotional film, I’ll do my best to give you some insight before going to see it. In some ways Babel reminded me of last year’s Best Picture winner, Crash, mainly because it has one of those interlocking plots where seemingly unrelated people become intertwined as the narrative unfolds. Babel focuses on three stories, set in Morocco, Japan and Mexico. The story begins with a tragedy striking a grieving married couple (Pitt and Blanchett) on vacation in Morocco" (read more).
I also did a post for my office's blog, Fusion PR Forum, about the future of TV and commercials in the wake of online video players and networks now streaming full episodes of popular shows like Lost, Sudio 60, Heroes and Grey's Anatomy for free online. Did you know that most broadband video streaming takes place during office hours and that noon is considered online prime-time for episode watching? It's the new coffee break. Not that I have any first hand experience with that ;) (read more).
Update: I leave today for Mexico City to attend a wedding in Cuernavaca. Be back Sunday night!
