21 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 1990s

31 March 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The 1990s: a time when Sleepwalkers, Burt Reynolds, No Escape, Chevy Chase and F/X/2 could top the Us box office...

By the 1990s, studios were waking up to movie marketing, and the era of the blockbuster. Tim Burton's Batman, released in summer 1989, had introduced the idea of a big opening weekend, and modern movies now target their promotional work to get just that. As such, it's harder and harder for smaller films to snare the top slot at the Us box office, even for one weekend.

In the 1990s, particularly the first half of the 1990s, that wasn't so much the case though. In fact, many films that have long since fallen from the public conscious topped the chart. And in this piece, I've tried to capture some of them.

Inevitably, you're going to have heard of some of them, and what a UK dweller sees as a »

5 grimly hilarious moments in Scientology's history

30 March 2015 2:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Frankly, I am still coping with every odious aspect of Scientology as illustrated in "Going Clear," HBO's blockbuster documentary about L. Ron Hubbard's glitzy "church" and its indoctrinated, oft-abused followers. Plenty is not funny about what's done to keep devoted followers in horrifying conditions. For instance: Who knows where David Miscavige's wife Shelly is? According to Tony Ortega, who was featured in "Going Clear," it's nowhere you want to be.  But even the grimmest absurdity is often hilarious, as "Going Clear" itself proved. As we begin to understand everything we learned (or re-learned) in "Going Clear," let's focus on five moments in Scientology's history that are undeniably, insanely, creepily funny.  1. That L. Ron Hubbard has said -- in print -- "I'd like to start a religion. That's where the real money is."  In fact, L. Ron Hubbard said several versions of this statement worded several different ways. It's just a fact. »

21 Insane Scientology Stories That Going Clear Left Out

30 March 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The revelations in last night's premiere of Alex Gibney's doc Going Clear left plenty of mouths agape — from abuse allegations at Sea Org to charges that John Travolta is being blackmailed — but 119 minutes wasn't nearly long enough to cover every Scientology scandal. What about Katie Holmes? And David Miscavige's "missing" wife, Shelly? We've rounded a few of the craziest stories that didn't make the final cut of Going Clear. (Did someone say "sequel"?) Katie Holmes No, you didn’t miss the part where they talked about Katie Holmes, because they never talked about Katie Holmes. Going Clear skipped straight from Nicole Kidman to the Nazanin Boniadi incident, a.k.a. when they tried to cast Tom Cruise's new girlfriend. But what about his six-year marriage to Holmes? How Katie broke off her engagement to fellow actor Chris Klein and flew to Los Angeles to meet the star »

Flynn is currently developing the HBO series and UK TV adaptation Utopia with her Gone Girl director David Fincher.

'Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief' (2015) Movie Review

26 March 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It always seems documentary filmmakers have a hard time walking the line between commentator and story teller. Separating themselves from the subject and allowing the nature of the story they are telling to tell itself rather than manipulating it for their own means. This is a problem I've always had with Michael Moore's documentaries as he seems only interested in preaching to the choir rather than exploring both sides of the debate. When it comes to Alex Gibney's Scientology documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, I genuinely feel he has done his absolute best to stand back and observe rather than inject himself or his opinions. He details an organization that, rather than respond to accusations, chooses to attack when confronted, and this has been going on even before the film's premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2015 and continues to this very day. »

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 14 - Top 9 '80s Night and Double-Elimination

25 March 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're only two weeks into this season's "American Idol" Finals and The Save is gone.  The "Idol" judges opted to Save Qaasim Middleton last week. Were they protecting the entertainment factor that Qaasim brings to the show? Were they rewarding Qaasim for bringing energy to an episode that had lacked energy? Were they recognizing that America's voting has, thus far, been wonky as heck this season? Either way, Wednesday's (March 25) episode of "American Idol" is going to be a double-elimination episode, meaning that there are 11 remaining contestants, but presumably only nine are going to sing. This will change the entire architecture of the episode. Plus, Fox is boasting an appearance by Salt and/or Peppa, following last week's big Kenny Loggins appearance. Whee! 8:01 p.m. I think Nick Fradiani should have been the '80s Night mentor, since I'm pretty sure he's the only contestant this season who existed way back then. »

Timeless style by Anne-Katrin Titze

Noah Baumbach says Academy Award Best Costume Design winner Ann Roth "has a way of dressing people - that you can't put your finger on." Roth won for Anthony Minghella's The English Patient, starring Ralph Fiennes, Juliette Binoche, Willem Dafoe and Kristin Scott Thomas and is a BAFTA honoree for John Schlesinger's The Day Of The Locust, which starred Donald Sutherland, Karen Black and Burgess Meredith. Roth also received Oscar nominations for her work on Robert Benton's Places In The Heart and again with Minghella for The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Noah's 2012 film, Frances Ha, with Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner and Adam Driver, had no costume designer credit, although Sumner's godmother is famed costume designer Colleen Atwood. »

9 franchise-starting young adult films that struggled

25 March 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

For every Harry Potter or Hunger Games series, there are those franchises that didn't quite set the world on fire...

Since Insurgent came out, I’ve been thinking about those less fortunate: the franchise wannabes. While Divergent may have succeeded financially, (a film that rode on the coat-tails of the even more lucrative The Hunger Games franchise) there are others who didn’t quite make it into the movie world’s big leagues. These are the franchise-starters that flopped, the films produced with the optimistic hope that they will bring in the readies and kick-start Hollywood’s latest franchise. Worse luck for them, really.

For the sake of simplicity, this list will zero in on Ya franchise-starters, films adapted from a young adult novel or with that audience in mind. There are plenty of more mature films that struggled such as Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time, The A-Team »

‘Paddington’ Review

22 March 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman, Ben Whishaw, Imelda Staunton, Michael Gambon, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Matt Lucas | Written and Directed by Paul King

When characters from children’s television shows are translated onto the silver screen sometimes the results aren’t exactly positive.  Paddington is one of the movies where I would admit I was cynical and didn’t expect much, especially because of the age of the actual show.  Then a little magical viral madness took over and the spectacle of the “Scary Paddington” took over and it was perfect to get the bear noticed, showing how awesome the internet can be.  The fact is even without the crazy internet people, Paddington turned into something surprising and very charming.

Paddington Blu-ray Review

20 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Paul King

Starring: Sally HawkinsHugh BonnevilleJulie WaltersMadeleine HarrisSamuel Joslin, with Nicole Kidman and Ben Whishaw.

Run Time: 91 minutes

Extras: Meet the Characters, When a Bear Comes to Stay, From Page to Screen, Gallery

When I first heard the rumours of the Paddington adaptation for the big screen, I wasn’t in opposition to the idea but wasn’t convinced they’d do Michael Bond’s wonderful books and Peggy Fortnum’s illustrations justice. Paddington Bear is an adored element of British upbringing and sometimes films can lose that purity and appeal when they’re out there for the whole world to see. Thankfully, with Harry Potter producer David Heyman behind the work alongside director Paul King, they’ve creatively concocted a quite fantastic family film that brings all the spirit alive.
