License to gripe: James Bond absent from Christmas TV

26 December 2013 6:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If you were looking for James Bond on television, it was a blue Christmas.

A marathon of Agent 007's movie adventures has been a tradition of the holiday as far back as when TBS had the rights to the pictures. Spike TV followed suit in subsequent years after it acquired the series -- as much of it as could be televised at that point, anyway -- and more recently, the films have been shuffled around the NBC Universal cable networks (with maddening trims of scenes and dialogue).

This Christmas went Bond-less, though, and it's likely the secret agent's devotees felt the pinch. Syfy had a couple of days of 007 at Thanksgiving, but that never has meant a lack of him at Christmas. Until now.

The past year seemingly has had more Bond telecasts than ever. The premium networks Encore and Epix also have gotten in on the action. But Epix »

Syfy Picks Up Legion-Based Dominion as 2014 Series

4 December 2013 4:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

It’s always exciting news when Syfy picks up a brand new scripted series, and we have high hopes for Dominion, based on characters from the 2010 movie Legion, as Syfy today announced its series order. We have equally high hopes that Syfy is making room for the new series on a new night – like maybe Thursdays? – and isn’t making room by finishing off one of our favorite no-longer-new series. Please.

Little White Lies Weekender, Cinema Palestino: film festival previews

Little White Lies Weekender | Cinema Palestino: Bristol Palestine Film Festival | Dirty Wars | Alexander Payne

Little White Lies Weekender, London

The best-designed film magazine on the shelf celebrates its 50th issue with a display of its unimpeachable good taste – mostly. The selection is largely overlooked/underpraised auteur classics, such as Harmony Korine's Gummo, Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch Drunk Love, Lynch's Mulholland Drive, and obscure 1970s road movie Wanda. There are also previews of future releases like Lukas Moodysson's We Are The Best!, plus 1980s Irish "thriller" (and Adam and Joe favourite) Taffin – a monumentally bad movie that definitely didn't get Pierce Brosnan the Bond gig. If you're quick, you can still catch Lwl's pop-up shop in Old Street, too.

Review: The World’s Endf

25 November 2013 1:08 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

After a steady diet of stupid buddy movies, including this summer’s Grown-Ups 2 flop, I welcomed Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s unique take on the concept in The World’s End. After a steady stream of funny and inventive films, this one hewed closer to a traditional premise: five high school buddies reunite for one last blast. However, being from this duo, one could expect something different.

The first forty minutes of the film felt fairly straightforward as the one who refused to grow up gathered his peers, all mired in staid existences, and convinced them to do what they failed to accomplish in their teens. In this case it meant visiting and quaffing a brew at all twelve pubs along the Golden Mile, finishing at the fabled World’s End. We see them struggling to reconnect, all annoyed at their leader for one reason or another. Unlike other films in this manner, »

Fire Breaks Out on the Set of Owen Wilson's New Thriller, 'The Coup'

22 November 2013 6:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Bangkok (AP) - A fire damaged a film set in northern Thailand where Owen Wilson and Lake Bell have been filming a Hollywood thriller, police and the production company said Thursday.

Both stars of "The Coup" had left the set for the day and were unharmed, said Korrawuth Arsana, a spokesman for Living Films.

The film is about an American family that gets caught in a military coup in Southeast Asia. It also stars Pierce Brosnan, who is due to join the film shoot next month.

Before the fire, the cast had filmed an explosion scene inside a dilapidated building in the town of Lampang, Korrawuth said.

"We had finished filming after the explosion scene," he said. "As the crew was packing and moving things downstairs somebody saw the fire on the third floor of the building."

Police Col. Thanakorn Khumwong said investigators suspect the high voltage required by the »

'That's Just Absurd': A Movie Virgin Watches 'Mrs. Doubtfire' for the First Time

22 November 2013 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

I have such fondness for director Chris Columbus's "Mrs. Doubtfire."

I remember watching it over and over, effusively quoting Robin Williams's over-the-top exclamations and giggling hysterically at the movie's comedic conundrums. It's truly a tour-de-force for Williams, who was given free improvisational reign on the set. His role as irresponsible Daniel, who takes desperate measures by impersonating a female nanny in order to see his kids during his divorce from wife Miranda (played by Sally Field), resulted in the birth of beloved character and the second-highest-grossing film of 1993 (behind "Jurassic Park"). It's a movie that spreads the schmaltz on thick, sure, but proves surprisingly ahead of its time when it comes to the fallout of divorce and the plights of working moms and perpetual man-boys, alike.

It's been ages since I've watched the film, so -- in honor of its 20th anniversary (November 24) -- I thought it important »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: is your spidey sense tingling? | Ben Child

After Marc Webb's 2012 Spider-Man reboot failed to justify its own existence, the auspices for the next movie look mixed

I'm with Willem Dafoe and James Franco on the issue of Spider-Man's rapid return to multiplexes last year, a mere five years after studio Sony royally messed up Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3. The webslinger really ought to have been given at least a decade off for bad behaviour before returning in The Amazing Spider-Man, a well-made movie that nevertheless failed to make the case for its own existence. Younger teenagers might not have seen 2002's Spider-Man; let's just say they're going to experience a significant dose of superhero deja vu when it next comes on the telly.

With luck, Marc Webb's forthcoming sequel, currently dubbed simply The Amazing Spider-Man 2, will set things straight. If nothing else, the reboot succeeded in resetting the timeline after the poor »

5 Mouth-Watering Movie Meals (And 5 That Will Make Your Stomach Churn)

21 November 2013 2:29 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Movies have the power to make our mouths water and stomachs growl; but equally so they have the power to make bile rise into our throats and turn us off certain foods forever.

Here’s a list of 5 movie scenes that presented meals that made me want to run out of the cinema or stop the DVD and feast on what the characters were eating (and 5 that me abandon my popcorn and turn the bucket into a vomit receptacle)…

 

5 Stomach-Churning Movie Meals… 5. Hot Jambalaya – Mrs. Doubtfire

Jambalaya, the comforting Creole dish of the deep south that infuses French and Spanish cuisines to produce a rich stew of chicken, andouille sausage, prawns and the holy trinity (onion, celery and bell pepper). And the non-spicy one that Bridges restaurant prepares for the pepper-intolerant Hugh (Pierce Brosnan) looks good enough to suit the biggest Louisiana stereotype: creamy, velvety rice clinging to large chunks »

Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman are reportedly courting Jack Nicholson for the Warner Bros. comedy El Presidente, about a by-the-books secret service agent assigned to protect “America’s worst former President” who boozes and womanizes with abandon.

The Best Blu-ray/DVD Releases of the Week Including ‘The World’s End,’ ’2 Guns’ and ‘Informant’

The World’s End Twenty years ago five friends attempted an epic pub crawl, but their effort fell apart before reaching the final bar, The World’s End. Now the group is reluctantly back together again to try and rewrite history, but the past is an ever-growing obstacle thanks in large part to how much remains unchanged in their old stomping grounds of New Haven. Things get worse though when they realize why exactly that is. Edgar Wright‘s final entry in his thematic Cornetto trilogy found a divisive reception from fans of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, but in many ways it’s the best of the three. It’s incredibly funny, highly energetic, and perfectly cast (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan »
