Auteur Watch - Noel Clarke

A. Sayeeda... oh wait, she's Moreno now.  So let's move on to Noel Clarke, mega-writer and director of the "Dulthood" series, of which there is Kidulthood and Adulthood, so far.  I'm sorry, the poster says that it's KiDULTHOOD and AdULTHOOD.  Now, if you notice the posters, the poster for KiDULTHOOD says "Before adulthood comes... KiDULTHOOD" and the poster for AdULTHOOD says "After kidhulthood comes... AdULTHOOD."  Now, you might be thinking, the filmmakers have painted themselves into a corner when it comes to the third installment, as we have the perfect yin yang type of thing working here.  Well, the simplest way out, perhaps the best, is to simply say, for the series-ending trilogy, "Well after kidulthood and adulthood comes... OLdULTHOOD."  Or as the British call it, Harry Brown... oops!  Clarke is British.  Okay, Gran Torino for the American audiences.
As for getting to Spielberg, well... screw that!  Check it out.  Star Trek Into Darkness?  That's better than Spielberg!  It's J. J. Abrams, the new Spielberg!  Power was transferred on the set of Super 8.  I read that in the tawdry pages of Variety.
