I love independent film. A long time ago, in the time of dragons, I used to want to make movies myself. So when I see something special, I feel like it’s my job as a film nerd to plug the hell out of it. I’m elated excited to bring you an interview with Mr. Nicholas McCarthy who just recently returned from Sundance 2011 in support of his moody thriller “The Pact”. Growing up on horror films it takes a lot to make the hair on my arms stand up and having recently watched The Pact, I can say with total sincerity that Mr. McCarthy has the directing chops to scare the crap out of you.
As reported by Deadline.com, the director of your favorite Mission Impossible movie, possibly favorite Star Trek movie and least favorite Amblin Entertainment movie is set to helm a brand new, Disney owned Star Wars film. I’m assuming that the majority of nerds with pitchforks are deciding whether they love this or hate it. I think the guy is a brilliant producer and slightly less brilliant director, but it has the possibility of being a good movie. It can’t be much worse than the prequels.
