1. WATCH: Film School with R.A. The Rugged Man (Episode 2).

    The Rugged Man returns with the second installment of his Film.com web series dedicated to le cinema . The special theme for this episode is “Directors That Shouldn’t Die.” Counted amongst the auteurs that R.A. wishes never kick the bucket are Woody Allen, Clint Eastwood (who once abused a turtle in a movie, as R.A. reminds us) and (maybe) Ron Howard, whose brother (and B-Movie icon) Clint is a Rugged Man favorite. For the record, R.A. doesn’t want David Cronenberg to ever stop breathing either, but as he points out, that mad Canadian genius will probably figure out a way to live forever via advanced scientific methods.
