Why Liking Bad Films Means You’re Smarter Than Average

21 August 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’re constantly getting abuse from your friends about your taste in films, Neil Calloway says help may be at hand from a recent study…

In what appears to be the cinematic equivalent of those studies that receive an inordinate amount of publicity when they trumpet the fact that gorging yourself on chocolate and red wine makes your healthier,“Enjoying trash films: Underlying features, viewing stances, and experiential response dimensions” from the Max Planck Society argues that more intelligent people enjoy bad films. Now you have an excuse for your collection of Uwe Boll and WWE movies; you watch them because you’re intelligent.

Of course, correlation does not mean causation (the more films Nicolas Cage appears in in a given year, the more people drown in swimming pools); watching Roger Corman and Troma Movies doesn’t make you smarter, it’s just more intelligent people are more like to enjoy trashier films. »

Jean Claude Van Johnson – “Pilot” Episode Review

20 August 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

When i first heard the news Jean Claude Van Damme would be starring in his own TV series, i was very excited. Here, Van Damme plays himself and to be honest he is very good at it, showcasing his acting ability flicking through dramatic to comedy with ease (Yes we get to see some of his trademark kicks).

Jean Clade Van Johnson opens with Jean Claude Van Damme staring at the camera, speaking about his old films such as Bloodsport and Timecop, ““My name is Jean-Claude Van Damme and I used to be super famous.Maybe you’ve seen Timecop, which is like Looper only a million times better” and how right he is.

He has it all, his own mansion, own car, own perfume and women on the side – but what he doesn’t have is the woman he loves and the big fame anymore.

Extended Snowden Clip Spotlights The Human Side Of Oliver Stone’s Tech Thriller

20 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The gloves are off in this new, extended clip for Snowden – and we’re not talking about the whistleblower’s crusade against the Nsa.

Instead, today’s all-new snippet shifts focus to the human element of Oliver Stone’s long-awaited drama, teeing up a political debate between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley on the grounds of the capital. It’s a nice tease, and already we’re sensing a natural dynamic developing between the film’s two leading stars.

Together, they’ll anchor Stone’s political thriller as Snowden and his girlfriend Lindsay Mills, who becomes drawn into a web of data mining and government surveillance once Gordon-Levitt’s lead casts a blinding light on the Nsa’s malpractice – classified information that featured the likes of Prism and more.

Turned down by every major studio due to its pressing subject matter, Oliver Stone’s Snowden will finally emerge into theaters »

Eight Terrible Casting Choices in Films

19 August 2016 9:46 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Casting is a hugely important part of the filmmaking process. Unfortunately, sometimes Hollywood gets it very wrong.  When the wrong person gets the part, it can spoil the whole movie. Here are eight instances where bad casting damaged a big movie.

 Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequel trilogy: This bit of bad casting not only ruined a film, it wrecked three films. While the Star Wars prequels had numerous problems, the worst was the portrayal of iconic villain Darth Vader—Aka Anakin Skywalker—as a sulky, petulant teenager. Christensen’s bland performance made the problem 10-times worse. How do you follow the voice of James Earl Jones with the whiny voice of Christensen? He also had no chemistry at all with his co-star and love-interest Natalie Portman, who played Queen Amidala.  

 Jack Black as Carl Denham in King Kong (2005): Jack Black didn’t know what movie he was in here. »

‘Snake Eyes’: Brian De Palma’s Funhouse of Facades and Fabrications

18 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In the weeks leading up to Snake Eyes’ release in August of 1998, my dad and I had gone together to see Lethal Weapon 4, There’s Something About Mary and The Negotiator. Both action titles were forgettable fare, but were a big deal upon release. (Riggs and Murtaugh vs. Jet Li! Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey conversing via walkie-talkie!) Brian De Palma‘s Snake Eyes with dad was the next order of business. The theater was packed because adults frequented the multiplexes not so long ago. You’re all of 10 years old, Nicolas Cage’s recent output – The Rock, Con Air, and Face/Off — has been terrific, and something seemed off with this new one. You remember leaving the theater not disappointed, but with little to discuss with dad on the ride home. Dad passed away in 2013, long after the Gary Sinise villain era and a few years before »

Ben-Hur star Jack Huston and other famous Hollywood family connectionsBen-Hur star Jack Huston and other famous Hollywood family connectionsAmanda Wood8/17/2016 12:21:00 Pm

It’s not uncommon for people to work in the “family business” but when the family business involves Hollywood, it’s an entirely different story.

Certain last names have earned such respect and reverence in the entertainment industry that being born into one of these families practically ensures success should they decide to pursue a career in entertainment. Some families, like the Coppolas, span generations and involve a complex web of well-connected cousins and siblings. Others, like the Smiths, represent the new Hollywood family, with their social-media famous kids appealing to the children of their parents’ fans.

We’ve made a list of some of our favourite famous families to celebrate the release of Ben-Hur, which stars its own member of a famous family. Jack Huston is »

Why Tiff’s Midnight Madness Program Attracts Cinephiles From Around the World Every Year

17 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Midnight screenings of scary movies have become a staple at film festivals around the world, but the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness series is the granddaddy of late night genre programs. Started in 1988, the 10-film series has become one of the most popular attractions at Tiff, frequently selling out its 1,200 seat theater.

Watch: Tiff Premiere ‘Green White Green’ Shows Off Wildness of Youth In Hilarious Insult Battle

Some of the high profile world premieres at this year’s fest include “Blair Witch,” the surprise sequel to 1999’s “The Blair Witch Project,” from director Adam Wingard (“The Guest”) and the opening night film “Free Fire,” a crime-drama starring Brie Larson and directed by Ben Wheatley (“Kill List”). Wingard and Wheatley are both Midnight Madness alumni, but this year’s Midnight slate also includes program newcomers like Greg McLean, whose action-horror film “The Belko Experiment” was written by “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn, »

War Dogs movie review: sob havoc over this gun fun run

17 August 2016 3:58 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A comedy only in the bleakest way, satire only in the sense that the whole world has become a parody of itself. Appalling and amusing in equal measure. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have read the source article (and I like it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

War Dogs was originally called Arms and the Dudes, which is a clever title, except it makes the movie sound like some sort of stoner comedy about bumbling weapons dealers from the guy who made the Hangover movies. And it’s not that at all. Oh, it is directed and cowritten by Todd Phillips, who wrote two and directed all three of the Hangover flicks, and it is about young arms dealers who frequently partake in illegal substances. But it’s not The Hangover with Guns. War Dogs is a comedy only in the darkest, »

Shelf Life: Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood surprise in sly thriller 'The Trust'

15 August 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What is Shelf Life? I recently moved into a new apartment, which means I had to box my entire movie collection. Now I’m trying to figure out how much of my physical media actually fits here. Each and every title is now up for grabs, new or old, and it’s time to decide what goes on the shelf and what just plain goes. Title: The Trust Year: 2016 Director: Alex Brewer and Benjamin Brewer Screenwriter: Adam Hirsch and Benjamin Brewer Format: Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy Purchased Or Sent: Sent What Is It? A young cop (Elijah Wood) is brought into a potentially deadly deal with an older cop (Nicolas Cage) who stumbles across a possible score while following leads on local drug traffic in Vegas. Random Thoughts: Direct-to-video (or close to it) Nicolas Cage movies are practically a sub-genre at this point. He's been working for the taxman long »
