From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...
A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.
As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »
After taking the reins of Keanu Reeves’ part as Johnny Utah, The November Man star Luke Bracey will follow up his role in Warner Bros.’ Point Break remake by starring in Mel Gibson’s war drama, Hacksaw Ridge.
Deadline has the casting scoop, with a report that reveals Bracey will assume the role of Smitty, a character described as “the hard-nosed alpha dog” of his platoon. He’ll star opposite Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington and Andrew Garfield in the wartime actioner, following the true story of Corporal Demond Doss (Garfield), the first conscientious objector to receive the decorated Medal of Honor. A pacifist through and through, Doss openly refused to carry a weapon into combat, leading the Us army to station him as a medic.
Doss still earned his stripes regardless, particularly across the gruelling three-month military assault known as the Battle of Okinawa circa 1945. It is here that Garfield »

Three days ago, Hugh Jackman decided to share his impersonation of Jim Carrey's The Mask in an Instagram video that quickly went viral. The star of that 1994 classic has now responded, sparking one very hilarious social media war. Yes, as you will see in the photo below, Jim Carrey is The Wolverine, and he is threatening his impersonation opponent with some deadly cutlery.
It's The Wolverine Vs. The Mask in what will surely be remembered as a showdown for the ages (well, in actuality you'll probably forget about it before you get home from work tonight). They both wear yellow costumes, they are both impervious to injury, and they're both flamboyant and loud superheroes! And they obviously like taking the piss out of one another, using the world as their platform. Though, this is more on the funny side. Don't expect this jovial beef to break out in the »
Digital projection is meaning cleaner and more stable pictures on the big screen.
Have you noticed anything different in the past few years of visiting your local multiplex? No more Harry Potter films every year mainly, but more fundamentally than that – does the screen look cleaner and more stable than usual? None of the scratches and jitter that you always used to see?
You’re witnessing the results of cinema's digital switchover, just another step our lives have taken from the analogue into the digital world. It’s maybe something many haven’t thought about too much, as they sit back, munch popcorn and drink gallons of Fanta while watching dozens of blockbusters.
But considering how many people are affected by it and its impact on how cinemas are run, maybe we should be asking: what’s wrong with this picture?
Since the film-digital debate is kind of technical, just »
Patricia Neal ca. 1950. Patricia Neal movies: 'The Day the Earth Stood Still,' 'A Face in the Crowd' Back in 1949, few would have predicted that Gary Cooper's leading lady in King Vidor's The Fountainhead would go on to win a Best Actress Academy Award 15 years later. Patricia Neal was one of those performers – e.g., Jean Arthur, Anne Bancroft – whose film career didn't start out all that well, but who, by way of Broadway, managed to both revive and magnify their Hollywood stardom. As part of its “Summer Under the Stars” series, Turner Classic Movies is dedicating Sunday, Aug. 16, '15, to Patricia Neal. This evening, TCM is showing three of her best-known films, in addition to one TCM premiere and an unusual latter-day entry. 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' Robert Wise was hardly a genre director.

When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with The Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to Mossy Bottom Farm.
Shaun The Sheep Movie powers through visual puns, sight gags and rollicking plot twists to arrive at a hard-won realization: there’s no place like home.
As there is no dialogue from any of the characters, the music plays such an important role in the movie. That’s where the fantastic, colorful score from composer Ilan Eshkeri comes in.
Complete with the Shaun the Sheep theme, lively cues, and songs, including the award-friendly “Feels Like Summer” song, Eshkeri score is a wonderful soundtrack for a very funny film.
Eshkeri’s recent film work includes Still Alice, »

Bill and Ted 3 is one of those sequels that has been sitting on the shelf just waiting to be made. More than a few original castmembers - including Keanu Reeves - have expressed interest in getting the movie into production, yet Hollywood keeps stalling and not getting the job done. There are likely multiple reasons for this, but now William Sadler - one of the stars of Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey - has identified one key issue that is preventing the project from moving along: the death of George Carlin. The Hollywood Life recently interviewed Sadler, and it was during their conversation that the subject of Bill and Ted 3 came up. The actor has spoken before about the idea of reprising his role as The Reaper from Bill and Ted's first sequel, and while he's still game for the part, he identifies the fact that George Carlin isn't around »
The Deauville American Film Festival is set to pay homage to American star Keanu Reeves during its 41st edition which is set to take place Sept.4-14.
As part of the tribute, Deauville will host a retrospective of Reeves’s most popular movies.
“Forever Neo from ‘Matrix,’ Jonathan Harker in ‘Dracula’ or Le Chevalier Danceny in ‘Dangerous Liaisons,’ Keanu Reeves has demonstrated his ability to take on extremely varied roles during his long and impressive movie career. He has worked with directors such as Gus Van Sant, Francis Ford Coppola, Bernardo Bertolucci and more recently Richard Linklater,” the festival said.
Reeves, who will be present in Deauville, made his directorial debut on Chinese/U.S. co-production “Man of Tai Chi,” a martial arts drama inspired by the life of stuntman Tiger Chen that came out in 2013.

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey have a soft spot in all our hearts. Everyone has a favourite between the two, and although I myself am a sap for the first film, there is no denying that William Sadler as the Grim Reaper in the second film was inspired casting.
Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey ended in such a way that it seemed that the story had all been tied up, yet the last couple of years have been littered with rumours that a third film was in the works. Leads Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves has both vocally expressed an interest in another outing but they of course weren’t the only members of World Peace inducing band Wyld Stallyns; they also had the Grim Reaper himself.
Recently we spoke exclusively with William Sadler and enjoyed a lovely meal with him. »

Starbreeze Studios is reportedly hard at work on a virtual reality-based, standalone, first-person shooter game based on last year's acclaimed throwback action film "John Wick" at Lionsgate.
VG247 reports that the plan is for a "fully immersive Vr experience" and while the game won't be in circulation until spring next year, a promotional version of the game will be available before that on the Htc Vive World Tour.
The original film stars Keanu Reeves as a retired and recently widowed legendary assassin whose puppy is killed and car stolen by the son of a major gangster who used to employ him. He sets out on a course for revenge and god help those in his way.
The film earned rave reviews for its dark and yet fun tone, outrageousness and slick execution which has led to a sequel already being in the works.
