‘When the Street Lights Go On’ Review: Eerie ’80s Murder-Mystery Blends ‘Stranger Things’ with ‘The Night Of’ — Sundance 2017

20 January 2017 3:01 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nostalgia may be based in the past, but it’s the future of entertainment. That’s how the media landscape has felt of late, with decades-old film franchises like “Star Wars” coming back to a very prosperous life, revivals like “Gilmore Girls” and “Will & Grace” dominating television, and everything from superhero movies to “Stranger Things” mining our childhoods for fresh material.

So as “When the Street Lights Go On” began and a familiar ’80s melody played over a montage of well-known events from 1983, wariness was the first feeling to set in: Here comes another attempt at manipulating our shared memories into “new” entertainment built on old ideas. But the deliberate and distinctive pacing combined with a uniquely mysterious presentation elevates the Paramount pilot above more overt nostalgia traps. And, more shocking still, its clever blend of on-the-nose songs from 1983 and lesser known numbers of the same year quickly and decisively help ground the pilot. »

‘Before I Fall’ Trailer: Zoey Deutch Stars in Teenage ‘Groundhog Day’

19 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

What would Groundhog Day look like if it starred sullen teenagers instead of Bill Murray? It would probably look a lot like Before I Fall, which takes the whole “one person repeats the same day over and over again” template and applies a whole bunch of teen angst. The new trailer has arrived ahead of […]

'Before I Fall' Trailer Is Like a Young Adult 'Groundhog Day'

18 January 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

This week we've already seen further evidence that E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is such a good movie that decades later it still wholly owns the "kids hiding something supernatural from their parents" subgenre. But it's not the only classic sci-fi movie that is still the gold standard for its genre. Groundhog Day will forever own the "stuck in a repeating time loop" genre, no matter how many different ways it's presented. Case in point, the trailer for Before I Fall, which is about to premiere at Sundance. This is basically the young adult melodrama version of Groundhog Day, with Zoey Deutch stuck in the Bill Murray role. Based on the trailer we have no clue why she's stuck in this loop or what she'll do to get out of it. But if we...

Space Jam Honest Trailer Slam Dunks on Michael Jordan Classic

17 January 2017 2:14 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year, fans celebrated the Space Jam 20th Anniversary, with the movie returning to the big screen for a limited time, as news started to spread about a potential sequel with current NBA superstar LeBron James. It's a whole new year now, though, and it seems like a perfect time for an Honest Trailer, to tear this divisive movie to shreds. This four-minute video tackles everything wrong with the animated movie, including Michael Jordan's lack of acting skills, the massive plot holes in the story, and much more.

This week's video is part of Screen Junkies' "Fan Appreciation Month," where they'll create Honest Trailers for the movies fans voted for, with Space Jam the third selection in the special series. The video's narrator, Jon Bailey, jokingly calls Space Jam the "Citizen Kane of live-action animated hybrid basketball films," which "blew the minds of every kid who saw it." Unfortunately, »

Here’s Why ‘The Jungle Book’ Deserves More Oscar Respect

13 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just as George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” James Cameron’s “Avatar,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” and Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” were cinematic groundbreakers for the ages, I believe Oscar voters should take Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” more seriously.

Favreau and screenwriter Justin Marks took Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of Mowgli and his brothers and, with help from James Cameron and Martin Scorsese’s go-to VFX master Rob Legato, created a seamlessly natural digital world with many vibrant animal characters — and one live boy (Neel Sethi).

Maybe Favreau makes it look too easy. This isn’t fantasy-world “Avatar.” This is digital India. He calls up fond memories of Disney’s 1967 animated musical, weaving in a couple of songs and creating a grand set piece led by Christopher Walken as a giant ancient orangutan (gigantopithecus, »

13 phobias on film for Friday the 13th13 phobias on film for Friday the 13thSasha James1/13/2017 9:05:00 Am

Did you know that “paraskavedekatriaphobia” is the fear of Friday the 13th?

Instead of the usual breakdown of the Friday the 13th movies that you’re probably used to, we decided to celebrate this Friday the 13th with a write-up of phobias and the movies that we most associate with them. Yes, we could have picked Arachnophobia for arachnophobia, but we tried to be at least a little bit more creative.

Check out our list below, and let us know if you can think up better movies to represent the below phobias.

 

Panphobia (Fear of Everything) – What About Bob?

You can’t talk about phobias without talking about Bob Wiley. In Frank Oz’s 90s classic What About Bob?, Bill Murray plays the multiphobic patient of Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss). He’s afraid of everything: buses, »

Bill Murray is Carl Spackler in ‘Caddyshack’ a movie released in 1980 that quickly developed into a cult classic for golf fans and golfers. It is one of the many releases now available for those who use Netflix in January 2017. The film had the tag line “Some People Just Don't Belong” and mocked the elite country clubbers of the 1980s in a 'snobs vs slobs' type plot that takes place at Bushwood Country Club. 'Caddyshack' also starred Chevy Chase (Ty Webb), Ted Knight (Judge Smalls), Rodney Dangerfield (Al Czervik), Michael O’Keefe (Danny Noonan) and Cindy Morgan as Lacey Underall. Many of the movie’s lines are used on golf courses every day, even 36 years after it’s release. This is a classic scene from Murray and featured on the video below. “What an incredible Cinderella story! This unknown, comes out of nowhere, to lead the pack at Augusta. »

1 January 2017 10:45 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Two films that have received some of the season’s best reviews — Mike Mills’ “20th Century Women” and Jim Jarmusch’s “Paterson” — opened in New York and Los Angeles last Wednesday. However, the weekend’s real arthouse story lies with “La La Land,” which is on a trajectory to earn more than $100 million by the end of its run.
