Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 11 - HitFix Picks

30 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] We're nearing the end! Day 11 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon takes us from "The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed" (mid-Season 21) through "Beware My Cheating Bart" (late-Season 23). Personally, I was shocked to see at least one or two episodes in this period that I haven't seen, as well as a lot of episodes I haven't seen multiple times, which was almost unheard-of for the first eight or nine days of the Marathon. But we still have preferences for you. Yup! We're gonna make it through this whole darned Marathon, for which we're unlikely to receive a prize. But we've got commitment.  [Oh and the episode guest-starring Katy Perry is "The Fight Before Christmas," airing at 7:30 a.m. It was neither good nor bad enough to get mentioned here, but it makes for a good picture.] Check out our recommendations for Day 10 and chime in with your own favorites... Katie Hasty Recommends: "The Bob Next Door" (3 a.m.) Episode #463 Why it's worth watching: The best Sideshow Bob is an evil Sideshow Bob. And the best kind of Nicolas Cage movie is "Face/Off."

Venice 2014: 'Manglehorn' review

30 August 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆David Gordon Green has to have one of the most eclectic directorial résumés of recent times. From stoner comedies like Pineapple Express (2008) and Your Highness (2011) to his work on hit TV show Eastbound & Down and striking debut George Washington (2000), Green has graduated into spiky character studies of Americans leading lives of quiet and not so quiet desperation. Last year he was on the Lido with Joe (2013), a marvellously gritty Southern noir which teased out one of Nicolas Cage's best performances in years. This year, Green returns in competition with Manglehorn (2014). Al Pacino plays the title character, A.J. Manglehorn, a seasoned locksmith by profession and a serious man.

Daily | Venice + Toronto 2014 | David Gordon Green’s Manglehorn

30 August 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

Barry Levinson's The Humbling may have been met with mixed reviews in Venice, but there's been praise pretty much across the board for Al Pacino's lead performance. Now comes David Gordon Green's Manglehorn, and it's "showcased the finest performance Pacino has delivered in years," argues the Guardian's Xan Brooks. But for Time's Richard Corliss, Manglehorn "never reaches the tenderness or intensity of Green’s work with Nicolas Cage in Joe." Variety's Peter Debruge: "If Manglehorn is a mystery, which seems to be Green and screenwriter Paul Logan’s intent, then the film hasn’t been structured in a way to invite curiosity." » - David Hudson »

Review: As Above, So Below (2014)

29 August 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Theatrical horror is notoriously disappointing, so the expectations I had for As Above, So Below were almost nonexistent.  The lure of cave exploration (a la The Descent) is 100% the only reason I went to see the film, and I’m glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed myself.  I caught the film during a matinee and I was the only person in the theatre.  Despite sitting alone amongst 149 empty seats, I was filled with an overwhelming amount of claustrophobia and admit to jumping in my seat on more than one occasion.  Is the film groundbreaking or particularly original? No.  However, As Above, So Below is one of the more enjoyable “found footage” films I’ve seen in a long time.

The film follows a young archaeologist named Scarlett Marlowe (Perdita Weeks), a much more beautiful version of Nicholas Cage in National Treasure who despite her young age, »

The November Man | Review

Sweet, Silly November: Donaldson’s Espionage Thriller is Overbaked

Starting out with a standard template of flourishes one can find in any number of garden variety spy thrillers, Roger Donaldson’s The November Man gets a lot of credit for being unexpectedly agile and energetic, generating mild tension as appropriate and even utilizing cast members more effectively than most B grade members of its species. But like a semi-talented juggler that takes on one ball too many, Donaldson’s film of furiously committed and concurrent clusters end up smashing into each other to concoct a rather silly and sallow end product. What’s unfortunate is that there are a couple likeable elements to the feature that make it entertaining to sit through, and one only has to compare this to Donaldson’s last film, the wretched Nicolas Cage headlined Seeking Justice, to be thankful for at least that.

Watch: A Brief History of J.J. Abrams' Abandoned 'Superman: Flyby'

29 August 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Plenty of people are familiar with the failed Superman Lives project that director Tim Burton tried to put together with a script from Kevin Smith and wacky actor Nicolas Cage in the lead role. We've featured a couple trailers for a Kickstarter documentary showcasing the making of the movie that never was, but there's another attempt to make a Superman movie that fewer people might know about. Before Bryan Singer would direct Superman Returns, Warner Bros. tried their hand at a film called Superman: Flyby, with a script from J.J. Abrams and questionable director Brett Ratner behind the camera. Watch now! Here's a brief history of Superman: Flyby in an excerpt of Mr. Sunday Movies (via io9): It's not hard to find the script online if you really want to read what could have been, but here's what Wikipedia has written on the project that fell apart in 2003: »

Notes from a Romantic Realist

28 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!

The world forgetting, by the world forgot.

Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!

Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d”

Alexander Pope

This writer is no romantic. As much as a need exists for romantic comedies there are few capable of breaching my cynical defences; less still which bear repeat viewing. Thankfully there are those who cater to the romantic realist, striking a balance between the fluff of Ephron and flim-flam which is Richard Curtis. Those are the ones I return to because few people intellectualise love like Allen in Annie Hall, while Kaufman’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is both love letter and warning shot for the unwary.

My primary reason for revisiting is simply one of fascination. Love is defined by scientists as a chemical reaction built through the sharing of collective experience. In filmic terms »

Hanks and Howard Back Together for Dan Brown's 'Inferno'

27 August 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was confirmed last night by Deadline that Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are bringing back Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon for a third time after The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons as Inferno, based on the Dan Brown novel, will head into production in April 2015. Worldwide the first two films brought in $1.24 billion worldwide with only 28% of that total coming from the domestic box office, which is to say this has a big overseas following despite the fact reviews for the first two movies were never stellar. As for this next installment, which skips over The Lost Symbol when it comes to the chronological release of the books' publication dates, here's the synopsis: In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon (Hanks), is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces... Dante's Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles »

Chloe Moretz Says She's Done Playing Hit-Girl, Blames Piracy For Killing Plans For 'Kick-Ass 3'

27 August 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Kick-Ass” gave fanboys something to squeal about in 2010. Dark humor? Check. Sweet fight choreography? Check. Perfectly placed Nicolas Cage insanity? Double check. And it was a hit, earning nearly $100 million worldwide, which is not too shabby for an R-rated, niche comic book movie. Three years later, “Kick-Ass 2” delivered none of the above. The sequel opened at number five at the box office, and barely scraped its way to $60 million. And Chloë Grace Moretz blames downloaders for the film's failure, alleging they are the reason a third movie won't happen. "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character," Moretz told Digital Spy. "Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. “ 'Kick-Ass 2' was one of the number-one pirated movies of the year, »

DC superhero movies that never got the greenlight

27 August 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may be in the golden age of superhero cinema, but here are some DC movies that never made it…

Naysayers would have you believe that Hollywood chucks bucket-loads of cash at any old comic book movie pitch that happens to float through their corner-office window, get stuck to their shoe or come to them miraculously as an on-the-toilet epiphany.

However, this is not the case, particularly with DC comics characters. While some films that do get made may seem like bog-fodder (oh hey, Green Lantern), there are plenty of comic adaptation pitches, in-development scripts and passion projects that have ended up not getting made for various reasons.

We had a rummage through the aeons of DC cinema history (also known as extensive Googling) and pulled together all the comic book movie projects we could find that ended up in the bin of crushed dreams for Batman, Superman and more. »

'Kick Ass 3' Is Dead Due to Piracy Claims Chloe Moretz

26 August 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During a recent interview, Chloe Moretz expressed her concern for online piracy, and claims that it is the sole reason why we will never see another Kick-Ass sequel. She also reveals that she has no plans on returning if Kick-Ass 3 comes to fruition.

Here is what she had to say.

"Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theater. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn't help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie - but because it didn't do so well, we can't make another one. »
