Something I’ve come to love about Father’s Day weekend is my own dad’s profound disinterest in the world of the internet. He doesn’t give a fig for Facebook, has no email address, and if he were ever involved with something viral it would be cause for a trip to the doctor’s office. The man is so offline that he doesn’t even have a debit card. What he does have is a library card. And for as long as I can remember, he has made the library his own (as a boy, I saw a lot of my dad in Henry Bemis, the protagonist of a famous Twilight Zone episode about a man who loved to read; I won’t ruin it, but look up “Time Enough At Last” some day). Books new and old, newspapers, and more — even our living room wall was usually decorated by a framed painting that came from a rotating collection housed at the library. It was a magical place, and even in the digital age, it never disappoints. For film lovers, this is a great time to check out … [Read more...] about Cinemadope: A great time for film lovers to check out Forbes Library
Technically, figure skating season begins each year on July 1; armed with that knowledge, perhaps discussing ice skating movies in June doesn't seem so far-fetched. If you're a fan of shiny outfits and stunt doubles filmed from afar, you know any month is the right month for settling in with a box of wine and a good training montage. This year, Colorado native, former competitive skater and screenwriter Maddison Bullock released her own homage to the sport with Ice: The Movie. Bullock, 25, has been skating for most of her life, mainly at rinks in Colorado Springs, Littleton and Winter Park. Now a Los Angeles resident, she returned to Colorado to draw on her connections in the figure skating community to make her film at locations that included Fraser, Castle Rock, Monument and Winter Park. Hockey and figure skaters are both in front of and behind the camera, as Bullock wanted to avoid the use of stunt doubles entirely. To that end, the crew went to "extraordinary lengths" to avoid … [Read more...] about Ten Ice-Skating Movies From Fails to Gold (Including a New Colorado Film)
