The second of Mr. Cameron's hidden films only available for streaming on Cinemax! This movie is excellent but a bit too slow paced for a late night movie party. “The Abyss” is best fit for viewing on a lazy solo afternoon when you can really get into the story.
One of the most popular films of the 1990's has been banished to VHS, DVD, and Cinemax streaming. You cannot rent nor buy this film anywhere. Does it REALLY deserve the reclusive status and misogynistic claims? Films like American Beauty (underage actor’s scene), White Chicks (dressing as Hispanic men), and Tropic Thunder (blackface) have not disappeared from sale. Plenty of films have national security storylines. Why is this movie hidden?
As I wrote today on my website regarding using a fake men's name to apply for freelance journalism jobs: "In the recent months, I used a man’s name applying to the same places I once asked for work under my real female name. Shocker! People were more respectful to me as the male alias...My experiment proves sexism is alive and well. The #metoo movement camouflages it, but it exists and shall exist well beyond my lifetime. Because I apply under a female name, I am undeserving of employment."
Voiceover actress Cristina Milizia has acted in work for Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Netflix, and Disney. Topics covered in the interview: marketing herself as a bilingual actress, lots of tips for newbie voiceover actors, wearing "silent" clothes in the recording studio, and developing a range of character voices.
The film franchise gets a new twist becoming a "girly" movie, a response to criticism towards the original movies. I talk about how different the movie is, which moviegoers will like it, what I expect for future "Transformers," and at the end, decide to reveal my heart's desire to make an animated "Transformers" series that takes things as seriously as a live action film might. If I haven't died by the time you hear this episode in another century, never getting the chance to do so.
