- David Bordwell: Trade secrets from David O Selznick – These norms were seldom stated outright. Were Selznick less interfering, less prone to hesitate between alternatives, less obsessed with minute details, we would not know as much about the workings of the system he sought to rule. He distilled into typescript and double carbons many notions that ordinarily went unstated.

- Dolby’ Atmos Debuts in Pixar’s Brave – The technology, Atmos, improves upon the previous channel-based format by adding ceiling speakers; by enabling sound designers to pull single audio elements from the soundtrack and assign them to individual speakers; and by adding proprietary software that algorithmically adjusts the mix to theater size, configuration, and sound format.

- Pauline and Me: Farewell, My Lovely (Andrew Sarris) – Jean-Luc Godard once noted that he and his colleagues on Cahiers du Cinema had missed the boat on Max Ophuls and John Ford. I would add Frank Borzage to that list. I happened to miss the boat the first time around on Billy Wilder, Sergio Leone and Debra Winger. We all change as we get older, and our perceptions of films change with us-all of us, that is, except Pauline. Her first impressions are engraved in stone forever and ever, because that is all movies deserve.

- Joan’s Digest Brings Fun, Flamboyant and Serious Feminism to Film Criticism – "It takes so much effort for women to get to the starting line, to get onto an editor's radar. I also wonder if sometimes the things that women are interested in — the way they respond to certain movies — may not be of interest to many male editors, but would be to many female readers. I've found that's true. In cinephile circles you see mostly men, but women cinephiles are out there. They're often just isolated from those nerd-herd scenes."

- The Original Frenemies – an oral history of Siskel and Ebert – Gene and Roger were on a flight one time, and Gene handed a piece of paper to a flight attendant and said, “Please give this note to Roger.” The note read, “Mr. Ebert, would you like to see the cockpit?” Gene had signed it, “The Captain.” Roger was quite pleased that the captain would invite him—and not Gene—to tour the cockpit. He walked up to the cockpit door and started knocking on it. All of a sudden, another flight attendant grabbed him and scolded, “You can’t go in there! Nobody goes in the cockpit!” She had to escort him back to his seat. Gene was rolling up and down the aisle with laughter. (NS)
