    Loving Vincent

    The new movie "Loving Vincent" is a celebration of Van Gogh’s life. Write about the film that made history as the first fully painted feature film as an international effort.

    • By sheer coincidence I happened to acquire a copy of this film recently and watched it this evening. 'Loving Vincent' is a thing of beauty and an astounding project to undertake. I can only imagine the technical difficulties those involved had to overcome, but the end result is well worth the time and effort. Perhaps the only suggestion I could add to your topic suggestion is to also look at the artists involved in the film making and how they approached the subject matter, what research they did and what insight they (hopefully) gained into the art of Vincent Van Gogh. – Amyus 3 months ago

    The Rise and Fall of the Prime Directive

    Explain what the Prime Directive is and its history in ST. Examine how ST: TNG emphasized the guiding principle with Picard’s pontification on the subject using specific examples where the PD was central to the plot. Conclude with a discussion on how and why the PD has fallen to the wayside first under Rick Berman and now with J.J. Abrams and Justin Lin.

      Explore Lin’s rise to direct ST: Beyond. Look at how he began as a director and examine what he will bring to the ST franchise. Address the topic of Justin Lin and Star Trek Beyond applied to the rest of the series and how that will effect them. Mention how Lin’s background in the Fast and Furious franchise will either be beneficial or harmful to what J.J. Abrams has done

        Critiquing Canadian Television

        Due South, Power Play, Flashpoint and The Listener are all TV series made in Canada. Why is there a dearth of diversity in Canadian productions? Given the popularity of Degrassi: The Next Generation and Little Mosque on the Prairie could Canadian TV benefit from exploring the uniqueness of the Canadian experience? What recommendations could be made to help Canadian TV?

        • There's also Murdoch Mysteries to look into. – JennyCardinal 2 years ago

        • (Corner Gas?) There is so much filmed in Canada, particularly in Vancouver. A lot of Sci-Fi. Fringe, The 4400, The 100, Stargate SG-1. Granted, Vancouver is losing some of the hold it had on Sci-Fi television (that's politics of film, not this article). My point is, are you looking for Canadian-produced and created work, or just work that was filmed in Canada, because there is a huge divide between those two? – chandlerwp 2 years ago

        • 100% Canadian productions Chandler is what I would like to see examined. If a movie is just filmed here then I don't think there is much creative control. You are correct that there is a huge divide between the two in terms of how much the producers would have a say in who and what and how these TV shows are made for sure. – Munjeera 2 years ago

        Ranking the Avengers Movies

        What criteria should be used to rank Avengers movies? What ranking would the Avengers movies have? I think 1-10 with 10 being the highest would be a easy reference for ranking. I would love to see what people have ranked already and a discussion for what really makes a great Avengers movie. If this could be timed to be written around the time Civil War is released even better. I found Age of Ultron derivative but know some people loved it. I think originality, the origins story and the villain are key to great conflict and rising tension. Character development, such as in Ironman, also adds flavor. Another often forgotten criteria is the supporting actors. Hope this helps. – Munjeera 6 hours ago

        In what ways did the original Star Trek predict the future?

        There are many ways in which the original Star Trek predicted aspects about the future such as the communicators which mimic cell phones. I would like to find out from Trekkie purists how Gene Roddenberry got it right.

        • Something to consider is that Star Trek has done this as a whole, not just with the Original series. There were many devices in both Voyager and TNG that predict future technology, such as tablets, comm systems, AI computers, and holograms. Perhaps you could compare and contrast each series and their different technology predictions. – Megan Finsel 2 years ago

        • I would like to see an article on the original series since it was 50 years ago or around there as a sort of anniversary of the series when it started Sept. 8, 1966. A kind of homage to the ideas as well as technology that Roddenberry envisioned. One item that comes to mind is the international cast. It is so unusual to have that kink of diversity in terms of a TV series in that time. Referring to specific episodes would also be great when they encountered alien technology that was "ahead." – Munjeera 2 years ago

        • Did Star Trek predict the future or create the future? Are there any modern technologies (i.e., the flip cell phone) that just might have been influenced by Star Trek? – sophiacatherine 2 years ago

        • Finding out what Star Trek influenced in terms of tech would be interesting. I heard that NASA did get some ideas about space technology from Star Trek. – Munjeera 2 years ago

        True, and yet many are inferior.

        The Art of Adaption
        Munjeera

        As long as the spirit of the original is maintained, then the adaptation works for me. I do not like social messages embedded as in the Narnia Chronicles movies that significantly altered the character of Susan and the male characters to reflect a theme that was nor originally present. It felt disingenuous to the original intent.
