1984 Retrospective: The Karate Kid

3 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

1984. The year that even the Olympics went to Hollywood is easily one of the greatest years in film history. 1984 is also the year that this writer was born…well, only just (my birthday is 31st December). This of course means that this is the year that I turn the big 3-0. Whilst having a mini wallow/mid-life breakdown I realised that many iconic movies came out during this year, meaning that they too turn 30. The year saw the likes of The Terminator, Ghostbusters, Splash, The Karate Kid, Police Academy and Gremlins welcomed into the world and our hearts. Having grown-up alongside many of these films I decided to perform an in-depth look into the films that shaped 1984 to see how they are holding up three decades later.

So far in this series we have looked at Gremlins, Ghostbusters, A Nightmare On Elm Street and the Kevin Bacon classic Footloose. This »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Review Roundup: How Good Is It?

12 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Should you go see 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?

With all the hype surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy, fans might be wondering if the movie will live up to expectations. Knowing this, we've pulled together a collection of quotes from some of the most popular reviews about the movie. Continue reading to see what the experts are saying.

"Guardians of the Galaxy is indeed as great as you've heard," said Forbes.

"Talking about directing in blockbusters is sometimes nothing more than wishful thinking. Most are such impersonally operated machines - dedicated to the business of brand storytelling - that they tend to obliterate any whisper of individuality. That there's a palpable directorial sensibility in Guardians of the Galaxy, along with other signs of genuine life, helps separate this latest Marvel cash grab from a lot of off-the-rack movie cartoons. Here, a pulse, wit, beauty and a real sensibility have been slipped into the fray, alongside the clockwork »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Clip Tells the Legend of 'Footloose'

29 July 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is shaping up to be one of the biggest movies this summer, and with anticipation growing by the day, we have a brand new clip featuring Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana). A child of the 80s, before he was taken from Earth by Yondu (Michael Rooker), Star-Lord makes a number of 80s references throughout the movie, including this scene where he tries to coerce Gamora into dancing with him. When she reveals that she is a warrior and an assassin who does not dance, Star-Lord tells her the legend of Kevin Bacon's Footloose, although this seduction technique does not go as smoothly as planned.

In addition, John C. Reilly brought another "clip" to the Late Show with David Letterman, although it isn't quite what you might expect. We also have two more set photos from director James Gunn's Instagram account, one with »

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Benicio Del Toro, Vin Diesel and James Gunn Talk Guardians Of The Galaxy

28 July 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is such a fun ride, with great action, plenty of laughs, a ton of heart and perfect choices in music.  It will have you singing along, and cheering for the snarky Rocket Raccoon and a talking tree named Groot. During a conference at the film’s press day actors Chris Pratt (“Peter Quill”/”Star-Lord”), Zoe Saldana (“Gamora”), Dave Bautista (“Dax the Destroyer”), Michael Rooker (“Yondu”), Benicio Del Toro (“The Collector”) and Vin Diesel (“Groot”) were joined by director James Gunn to talk about what attracted them to this project, how liberating it is to not have to fit into the regular Marvel scheme of things, why Yondu is such a bad-ass, fighting the right attitude for Peter Quill/Star-Lord, the emotional journey of the story, the process for having the music organically come from and compliment the story, the physicality of these roles, why the movie references Kevin Bacon, »

Comic-Con: The Cast and Producers of The Following Talk Season 3 Reboot, Ryan’s New Found Happiness, Max’s Moral Compass, and More

28 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Joe Carroll might have been put in handcuffs in the season finale of The Following back in May but that doesn’t mean he won’t be factoring into the storyline when the series returns this fall with new psychological thrills.  After their panel at Comic-Con on Sunday morning, Kevin Bacon, Shawn Ashmore, Jessica Stroup, and Sam Underwood, along with executive producer Marcos Siega and new showrunner Jennifer Johnson, sat down with press for round table interviews in which they discussed what’s in store for Season 3. During our chat, they explained why they’re calling it a Following “reboot,” revealed that we’ll be seeing a much happier Ryan Hardy when the show returns in October, and talked about Max’s tough moral choices, among other things.  Hit the jump for more. Question:  Can you explain why you’re referring to next season as a “reboot?” Marcos Siega: »

'The Following' scares up Season 3 hints at Comic-Con: Live-Blog

27 July 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's Comic-Con Sunday. Woo! On Saturday, I live-blogged Wbtv's Night of DC Entertainment, "True Blood" and "The Vampire Diaries." Sunday is TV Day in Hall H and I'll be live-blogging panels for "Sons of Anarchy" and "The Strain." But first? Kevin Williamson and Kevin Bacon return to see if people are actually interested in what's in store for Season 3 of "The Following"...  Follow along... [See what I did there?] 11:13 a.m. The line to get into Hall H is, at the most, a couple hundred people and I'm guessing a couple thousand "Supernatural" fans departed. 11:15 a.m. Off we go! Our panel: Sam Underwood, Marcos Siega, Kevin Bacon, Kevin Williamson, Jennifer Johnson, Shawn Ashmore and Jessica Stroup. 11:18 a.m. They shot two endings last season, at least allegedly. With teases like this, I never know who's joking and which "special" endings are real. It begins as last season did with Kevin Bacon »

Tremors Remake Moving Forward

26 July 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

24 years after Tremors hit theaters, did you actually think you were safe at last from those pesky graboids? Think again – a remake of the beloved horror comedy still has a pulse and is actually ramping up for production sooner than we had thought. Not that we were asking for one, but it might be fun to revisit the premise with more modern special effects, trading out Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward for two modern-day comedians (anyone else want Key and Peele to take this?).

Recently, Don Michael Smith posted the following to his blog, indicating that Universal is keen on the remake:

Hey all you “Company Of Heroes” fans, I’m back in Sofia, Bulgaria getting ready to do another in the series. This one’s called “The Fourth Reich” and it promises to have more of the same only better. For all you out there that hated on the first movie, »

Head for High Ground: 'Tremors' Is Being Rebooted

23 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you grew up in the ‘90s and loved cult monster movies, then you undoubtedly have a warm spot in your heart for Tremors – and Universal is hoping to cash in on that nostalgia by rebooting the franchise with Don Michael Paul taking a seat behind the camera. The original 1990 film featured Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward as a couple of guys in a small desert town who find themselves under attack by giant earthworms. It’s a film with the perfect mix of action and comedy – and it also featured some really cool monsters. Unfortunately, the subsequent three sequels got less and less interesting. So, if ever there were a property that was ripe for a reboot, Tremors is it. An updated script and cast could breathe new life into this beloved franchise. Our only...

Don Michael Paul and Univeral Working on Tremors Reboot

23 July 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

One of the more fun comedy horror creature feature franchises from the past 25 years has got to be Universal's 'Tremors' series. After first appearing back in 1990 with Kevin Bacon the underground dwelling beasts then continued to evolve over the course of the next two movies, spun off into a short-lived TV series and then even prequelised back in 2004. But it's been a whole decade since the Graboids have made another appearance. But 'rumblings' have now shaken out news that 'Lake Placid: The Final Chapter' helmer Don Michael Paul is reportedly working on a long-awaited sequel. »

Unfortunate ‘Tremors’ Reboot On The Horizon

22 July 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Deep under the surface of Hollywood ideas, treatments and discarded scripts roams something hideous, gliding blindly and occasionally breaking the surface whenever enough buzz about it is at a certain pitch.  It never takes much noise, just the aloud musings of one executive as he ponders, “Reboot.”

Not long ago, the reboot has replaced the remake as the Hollywood trend for critics to complain about.  And this most recent news doesn’t do anything to sway opinion toward the positive.     Arrow In the Head is reporting that director Don Michael Paul is talking about taking over the Tremors franchise.

“After I finish up “Company Of Heroes: The Fourth Reich” I will be headed to Johannesburg, South Africa to reboot the “Tremors” franchise for Universal,” Paul wrote.

Paul, whose previous work includes Lake Placid: The Final Chapter and other sequels that involve colons.

As you may recall, Tremors began as »

Director Reveals He’s Helming a Tremors Reboot

22 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Don Michael Paul is making a decent living directing sequels that head to VOD and DVD. It began with Lake Placid: The Final Chapter and, according to his blog, he has already shot Jarhead 2: Field of Fire and Sniper: Legacy (the Sniper movies are still going?!). Soon, he's apparently going to be doing a Tremors reboot for Universal. Yes, a new take on the 1990 film - arguably one of the best monster movies of the '90s - that starred Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward and concerns underground worm-like creatures with mouth tentacles that ate people.

Stalker Boss Rejects Following Comparisons, Stylized Violence Label

17 July 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kevin Williamson wants you to know his new crime drama Stalker (premiering Oct. 1) is not The Following.

While the Kevin Bacon-starrer “was meant to be a popcorn thriller,” the upcoming CBS series, like much of the network’s lineup, “is a crime drama,” Williamson said Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “This is a procedural. It’s a totally different show. It’s eerie. It’s creepy. It’s suspenseful.”

Wreckage (2010) Review

16 July 2014 1:26 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Wreckage (2010)

Directed by: John Asher

Written by: David Frigerio

Cast: Aaron Paul (Rick), Mike Erwin (Jared), Cameron Richardson (Kate), Scoot McNairy (Frank), Kelly Kruger (Jessica), Roger Perry (Sheriff Macabee), John Asher (Deputy Berry), Lisa Ann Walter (Doctor Richardson)

Cult horror movies that have actors in them that go on to mega stardom create a separate category all their own. Kevin Bacon in “Friday the 13th”, George Clooney in “Horror High”, and Johnny Depp in the original “A Nightmare on Elm Street”. I don’t know what it is, but it ruins it for me a little bit, because when I watch the movie thereafter, that’s all I see. Then there are the films that might have been buried before (sometimes for good reason), but enjoy a resurrection, and maybe even a redesigned cover with the now famous star’s name displayed prominently, even »
