With the recent tragic events in Florida surrounding the Trayvon Martin case, 20th Century Fox have their work cut out for them when it comes to one of their upcoming comedies. Previously known as Neighborhood Watch, the film follows Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade and Vince Vaughn as a group of suburban dads that create a patrol group for their area and they must protect Earth from an alien invasion.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
