Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Ascending | The Wachowskis | 127 mins. | PG-13   The Wachowski siblings follow-up their wildly underrated sci-fi venture Cloud Atlas (2012) with Jupiter Ascending, starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne. When Jupiter was first announced, I’ll admit, I was very intrigued – mostly because I’m a big fan of Eddie Redmayne as an […]

Sometimes the darkest places ignite a fire. Burn bright! "Burning Desire." Bobby James. (c) 2015.

Happy last day of February! At the beginning of this month, I presented a piece of art titled February Joy, which was extremely well-received (the piece even fetched a couple purchase offers – will it sell?). Designed after pieces titled Moondust, I’ll Keep Loving You and Falling (see those pieces – and more – here), February Joy was supposed to represent my return to bright, bold […]

The time has come. This is the moment you’ve all been [passively] waiting for – the announcement of the 2014 Bobby James Awards for “Best of Film.” The awards go to… …first, let’s start with one of the fan-voted awards, shall we?

Fifty Shades

UPDATE (February 13, 2015): Forget about how bizarre Gone Girl was because this week, the film adaptation of E.L.

February Joy. (c) 2015. Bobby James.

It’s February… Last month (and this year) began in the most cinematic way possible – a way that inspired joyous art and life. Then, clouds moved in to rest before the sun – and that shadow was cast into my work. From there, the rain stopped and a fire was sparked, its flame slowly began to grow […]
