I had the pleasure recently of attending two 3-D movies on the same day, with about an hour and a half between them to digest the first before becoming absorbed in the second.  Both were commendable, but entirely different in practically every way imaginable, dramatically illustrating the huge palette of writing and production tools available… [Continue Reading]
