The Definitive Movies of 1995

10. Waterworld

Directed by: Kevin Reynolds

It could be the flop of all flops. At the time, “Waterworld” was the most expensive film ever made. Starring Kevin Costner, “Waterworld” is a science-fiction/fantasy film taking place roughly 500 years after the polar ice caps melted in the beginning of the 21st century, effectively covering the entire world with water. Dirt has become a commodity and an unknown traveler named “the Mariner” (Costner) is trying to find anywhere to trade his stash. The catch: he’s a mutant, with gills, allowing him to breathe underwater. He is joined by a woman named Helen (Jeannie Tripplehorn) and child named Enola (Tina Majorino) with an elaborate map tattooed on her back. They sail the world and encounter various groups of survivors. They are pursued by a group of evil forces, led by an eye-patched man called “the Deacon” (Dennis Hopper). The special effects are actually pretty impressive, »

Titanic: Someone Secretly Snuck Pcp Into The Cast And Crew's Food

29 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

By this point, we.ve all seen Titanic. Some of you might regret watching James Cameron.s nautical epic. Others might regard Titanic as a perfect romantic-disaster flick that is only despised because of its success. Either way, the fact that the cast and crew of Titanic.s food was laced with Pcp during filming will probably make even the most fervent of naysayers contemplate re-watching the film. Some of you may already be aware of this tale. Back in 1996, over a year before Titanic landed in cinemas and instantly became a pop culture phenomenon, E! Online reported that the film crew.s lobster chowder was spiked with the drug. However, at the time, it was assumed that neither James Cameron nor any of Titanic.s major stars, which included Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and the one and only Billy Zane, were victims. However Bill Paxton has now come out »

Liam Hemsworth Offered The Lead In The Independence Day Sequel

27 January 2015 11:04 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

In a day filled with controversial and rumoured casting choices, this one probably won’t fire up the klaxons as much as it might. And for now, it’s still more rumour than reality, but according to The Wrap, Liam Hemsworth has an offer to star in the Independence Day sequel, currently titled ID Forever.The sequel to the 1996 alien invasion film has been bubbling away in the development pods for, well, seemingly forever. There have been various versions proposed, talk of two films shot back-to-back and endless rumours about who might return to star.With Will Smith out of the picture for now and Jeff Goldblum and Bill Paxton apparently set to return, director Roland Emmerich is looking for a new star and Hemsworth might just be it. There’s no word on what his character might be, but that’s not even worth considering unless he actually signs on to the thing. »

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: January 26 - February 1

26 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Fury"

David Ayer's WWII action/drama boasts an all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, and Logan Lerman as members of a tank crew headed right into Nazi territory. Definitely for fans of gruesome war movies, so if that doesn't whet your whistle, keep on rolling.

"The Book of Life"

Guillermo del Toro produced this animated family film inspired by Mexican folkore. Although it got mixed reviews from critics, the animation alone makes it worth a look. And, hey, don't you need a break from "Frozen"?

"Downton Abbey: Season 5"

If you haven't caught up to all the "Upstairs Downstairs"-style drama in this PBS series, well, now's your chance. If you're just a diehard collector, the three-disc Blu-ray comes with 40 minutes of supplemental material. »

New Trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – Exo Zombies

20 January 2015 1:11 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With their ability to chomp into humans like it’s always their last meal, pursue their prey without seemingly ever getting tired, and having no room in their noggins for fear or admittance of defeat, zombies are already capable of wreaking all types of cannibalistic havoc on the human race, so imagine how much harder it would be to take on the living dead if they were wearing advanced weaponry that accelerated their already impressive capabilities.

In Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – Exo Zombies, four survivors—voiced by John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal—face a technology-aided living dead onslaught brought upon the world by the Atlas Corporation. A newly released trailer for the Dlc shows that a lot of firepower and quick decision-making skills will be needed to take down the living dead of the future. Also teased are a pack of zombie dogs reminiscent of »

Dan’s Ten Best: Movies of 2014

11 January 2015 9:28 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The proverbial Top Ten List. A sacred tradition passed down by our cinematic elders. This is the fourth time I have partaken in this holy tradition, and one thing has remained constant is that this list is never set in stone. As we catch up with more films we missed or rewatch our favorites it causes us to like a movie more or less causing this list to change. In fact in 2012 and 2013 I ended up seeing my number one film of the year after I wrote up my Top 10. So the question becomes, “Why Do it?”. Well, for one it’s fun. At least I find it an enjoyable exercise as I try to break down the year that was. I watched 163 movies that were released in 2014. Narrowing that 163 down to a Top 10 is a challenge I enjoy.

Looking at 2014 as a whole it is evident it was a pretty good year. »

Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Havoc Dlc Dated For January 27th, Exo Zombies Included

6 January 2015 4:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though eager fans knew it was due sometime this month, Activision has formally announced that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare‘s maiden Dlc pack, Havoc, will arrive for Xbox One and Xbox 360 on January 27.

As with previous map packs, the expansion will introduce four all-new multiplayer arenas in the form of Sideshow, Core, Drift and Urban. Not only that, fans of the first-person shooter can also look forward to a brand spanking new weapon known only as the AE4-Widowmaker — an assault rifle with a high-energy twist.

But perhaps the most enticing new-fangled addition that Havoc will herald is that of Exo Zombies, Advanced Warfare‘s spin on the franchise’s classic survival-based co-op mode. Given that it wasn’t included at launch, there’s now a particular kind of expectation resting on the mode’s broad, undead shoulders. Still, with the likes of John Malkovich, Jon Bernthal, Rose McGowan »

Jonathan’s Favorites of 2014

31 December 2014 4:38 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In years past on Daily Dead, I’ve gone back and forth on whether we should run an end of the year list. There are always movies that I recognize are really well made, but I didn’t like and is it even fair to run a “Best” list when there’s the odd movie that I didn’t get a chance to see? It was enough to drive me insane and so I decided to do something a bit different in 2013. This year, we return with our “Favorites of the Year” lists and the difference here is that we’re not just highlighting movies. Instead, we’re sharing our favorite genre experiences of the year with our readers, which could be a favorite movie, collectible, event, or person. Check back every day this week to find out what made the cut for the rest of the Daily Dead team. »
