Real Steel
Two Jews on Film: By Joan Alperin Schwartz - The year is 2020. Things look pretty much the same as they do now... Except in the world of boxing. Humans have evolved to the point where they no longer get excited by watching men and women pummel each other. Score one for us.

What we have instead is 'Robot Boxing' which I have to say is...really, really cool...especially the way it's depicted in this new fantasy, action film, called 'Real Steel' directed by Shawn Levy.

First of all, these 'robot boxers' aren't your everyday garden variety robots. These animatronic, mechanical men are ov...

He is typically known as a follower of King Richard II, the Lionheart, and his enemies are the Sheriff of Nottingham and the ambitious Prince John.

Journeyman Film Is The Perfect Pit Stop For Talented Traveling Actors

March 27th, 2008 10:47am EDT
Who
This weekend, there will be a movie released in the shadow of 21 and Run Fat Boy Run. It's been making its way across movie festivals for almost a year, picking up a couple of wins for "Best Here" and "Viewers Choice" there, and drawing some attention along the way.
