19 unforgettable soundtrack moments from The X-Files

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson looks back at composer Mark Snow’s extraordinary contribution to one of the greatest TV shows of all time…

It was the pop culture sensation of the 1990s – and now it’s back to storm TV screens in the UK (well, Channel 5 anyway). The X-Files initially ran for 10 series’ (in addition to spawning two movies) and introduced us to two of television’s greatest heroes in the form of FBI agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson), both dedicated to exposing extraterrestrial and paranormal phenomena lurking amidst the fabric of everyday life.

However, the series wouldn’t have had half its impact without the input of composer Mark Snow, whose haunting music constantly had viewers anticipating what was around the next corner. Here are 19 memorable tracks exploring the rich yet underrated soundtrack history of this landmark show, ones confirming Snow as perhaps the unsung hero of The X-Files. »

7 February 2016 9:13 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The only person more nervous than Cam Newton and Peyton Manning on Super Bowl Sunday? Stephen Colbert.

Not only did the Late Show rookie land the coveted post-game time slot on CBS — marking the first time a late-night program has aired after the NFL championship —  but he was tasked with pulling off a live broadcast just moments after the Denver Broncos won the Lombardi Trophy.

6 Aborted Superman Movies You Almost Got To See

7 February 2016 1:55 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros

The Batman v Superman hype train is rolling in faster than a speeding bullet as what is arguably the Last Son of Krypton’s most anticipated on-screen outing draws closer.

Us superhero fanatics are no strangers to hype, but there are times when it leads only to bitter disappointment, as the resulting film flops like Clark Kent under a heavy dose of Kryptonite or, in some cases, never makes it to cinemas at all.

Believe it or not, there are as many Superman movies lost in the depths of Development Hell are there are on Warner Bros’ historic release slate – and fans can only wonder what might have been if some of these rejected ideas had been given the chance to fly.

Nicolas Cage nearly donned the cape and spandex, Christopher Reeve once flirted with a fifth outing in red and blue, and Batman and Superman might have »

Every Coen Brothers Movie, Ranked From Worst to Best

5 February 2016 8:50 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Joel and Ethan Coen’s new film, Hail, Caesar!, finally opened this week, propelled by many of the hallmarks of their filmography: Comically dim characters engaging in a variety of conspiracies and double-crosses against the background of a meticulously re-created and reimagined world (in this case, Hollywood in the 1950s). Funny thing about the Coens: They are two of the most original filmmakers American cinema has given us, and yet they consistently stress the same motifs and themes throughout their works. Every Coen Brothers movie is distinctive in its own right — you’d never mistake one for another — and yet they constantly traffic in the same story elements, characters, and situations. So much so that, way back in 2008, we actually published this handy chart/guide to creating your own Coen Brothers movie. In other words, there’s a through-line that connects Nicolas Cage’s ex-con in Raising Arizona and William H. Macy »

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies »

‘Backtrack’ Review

28 January 2016 8:40 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Adrien Brody, Sam Neill, Robin McLeavy, Bruce Spence, Jenni Baird, Anna Lise Phillips, Chloe Bayliss, Olga Miller, Michael Whalley, Malcolm Kennard, Matthew Sunderland, Suzie Steen | Written and Directed by Michael Petroni

Don’t look now, but a man begins to experience strange visions following the death of his child. After realising that the majority of his patients are ghosts (like a reverse Sixth Sense) psychologist Peter Bower (Adrien Brody) heads to his spooky old hometown in the hope that he can uncover the mystery behind it all.

Moody, intense Brody is the main draw for this low-key supernatural thriller, its effective Gothic vibe making it stand out from the chaff like Nicolas Cage’s Pay the Ghost (I say that with love) or the litany of 101 Films releases just like it (said with less love, but there’s still some). The level of class extends to the presence of one Sam Neill, »

Confirming its status as a driving force on France’s animation scene, Mikros Image Group, the Paris and Montreal-based animation/VFX house, is working on a new “Asterix” animated feature project that follows up its 2014 hit “Asterix: The Mansion of the Gods.” Details are being kept under wraps but the movie is once again expected to be directed by Louis Clichy – who worked as an animator on Pixar’s “Wall-e” and “Up” – and Alexandre Astier, “Mansions’” screenwriter.

Seven of the Greatest Driving Films of all Time

25 January 2016 8:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you are anything like me you couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel of a car. I remember being lucky enough to get my first car before I was even old enough to learn to drive (thanks to my parents). Most of that excitement was based on growing up watching classic driving movies and wanting to experience the thrill of the open road.

Of course, the reality of driving is very different and staying safe and knowing the laws of the road were very important for mine and my friends’ enjoyment. This is the important groundwork needed to make the dream comes true.

If anything the dream of the driving movies spurs you on to do all that important work. So, where should you look for inspiration that will stick with you? Here are some of my greatest driving films of all time:

Movie Review – Dirty Grandpa (2016)

25 January 2016 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dirty Grandpa, 2016.

Directed by Dan Mazer.

Starring Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Aubrey Plaza, Julianne Hough, Zoey Deutch, Jason Mantzoukas and Dermot Mulroney.

Synopsis:

Right before his wedding, an uptight guy is tricked into driving his grandfather, a perverted former Army general, to Florida for spring break.

Think of the worst moments you have experienced whilst watching the shiny, shimmering lights of cinema’s endless catalogue. Does it involve Showgirls? Nipples on a Bat-suit? Nicolas Cage and an army of bees? Got one? That moment, from whatever depths of film’s most sinful moments is about to be outdone by not one, not two but countless moments in Dirty Grandpa, one of the most embarrassing and shameful films to come out of Hollywood this decade. All while having Oscar winner Robert De Niro grits his teeth and gamefully plays along. Brace yourselves: this is the lowest of the low.

Composer Lorne Balfe’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi – Music from the Motion Picture Available Jan. 15

15 January 2016 6:07 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Paramount Music will release the 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi – Music from the Motion Picture digitally on January 15, 2016. The album features the film’s original score by Lorne Balfe (Terminator Genisys, Penguins Of Madagascar).

“The film is really about the soldiers’ ordeal and how they coped with the situation at hand,” said Balfe. “Michael (Bay) does a great job keeping the film from becoming political. The film is really here to honor the soldiers and the men and women who ultimately had to step up and do everything they could to save as many people as possible.”

From director Michael Bay, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi is the gripping true story of six elite ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA who fought back against overwhelming odds when terrorists attacked a U.S. diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012.  When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right. »
