Movie - Screen Notes Movie Spotlight and Studio
TRANSFORMERS Released 2007
Transformers - when I originally saw this Trailer I said, that's not for me. The movie came out and it ripped up the movie charts. Word of mouth traveled and everyone said it was great, awesome, blah, blah, blah! So I decided to watch Transformers to see what all the buzz was about. I thought the beginning of the movie started out very well. Then it happened, like most movies these days the specials effects took over. I really do think people are more interested in special effects then the story. Well the bad machines fought the good machines so we could have a built in sequel point. Can't say this movie will be a big favorite, I never realized it was made in Michigan.

YOUTH IN REVOLT Released 2010
Youth in Revolt is the story of Nick Twisp – a unique, but affable teen with a taste for the finer things in life like Sinatra and Fellini – who falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful, free-spirited Sheeni Saunders while on a family vacation. But family, geography and jealous ex-lovers conspire to keep these two apart. With Sheeni’s encouragement, Nick abandons his dull, predictable life and develops a rebellious alter ego: Francois. With his ascot, his moustache and his cigarette, Francois will stop at nothing to be with Sheeni, and leads Nick Twisp on a path of destruction with unpredictable and uproarious consequences.

KILLSHOT Released 2008
I added this film based on it's Detroit backdrop and crazy path it took to be released. The film adaptation of the 1989 novel Killshot by Elmore Leonard began development as early as May 1997 under Miramax Films. By September 2004, the adaptation entered active development. By January 2005, The Weinstein Company hired Madden to direct the film based on a script by Hossein Amini. The following August, actors Diane Lane, Thomas Jane, and Mickey Rourke were cast in the lead roles. In September, actors Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Johnny Knoxville were cast. Principal photography began in October 2005 in Toronto. Production concluded by December 2006. By July 2006, Killshot was being screened to test audiences who had previously enjoyed Traffic and Collateral. Test screenings showed that audiences found the plot too confusing and that the story was not tightened enough. The film was released on DVD on May 26, 2009.

WHIP IT Released 2009
This is Drew Barrymore's directorial debut, and she does a damn fine job at juggling most of the time. It helps that she is backed by the 1-2 punch of director of photography Robert Yeoman and editor Dylan Tichenor. Both have previously collaborated on some Wes Anderson pictures, and there is a mild influence abound, but Barrymore's voice is her own. She has a little trouble with the love story aspect, and that could honestly be dropped from the movie without losing any sort of momentum. But it works enough, and the way it resolves is very refreshing. On top of all this, she also made a movie with a lot of kick-ass roller derby footage, that's thrilling and fun to watch. This attached with a positive "Girl Power" attitude, and a genuine love and adoration for her characters, make Drew Barrymore someone to look out for in the future. I hope Drew continues to make movies as fun and genuine as this. The DUDE
