Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection: given a raw deal?

26 February 2015 10:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Is the recent hint that the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection are to be overlooked a little too drastic?

This article contains spoilers for Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection.

If there’s one thing that is, for me, an unqualified triumph in Alien 3, it’s Elliot Goldenthal’s score. With its cacophonous drums and heart-rending strings, it soared where the film itself faltered.

But as I’ve argued many, many times on these pages, Alien 3 is itself a flawed masterpiece. Sure, it stepped roughly all over the story established in Aliens, but there were plans to kill off Newt and Hicks before first-time director David Fincher even came aboard.

Saddled with a film without an adequately finished script, an interfering studio and a looming release date, Fincher remained true to the gloomy vision laid out for him: Sigourney Weaver wanted the sequel to be her last, »

In Defence Of... Alien: Resurrection, the franchise's ugly duckling

19 February 2015 5:28 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Take a director who didn't speak English, a studio desperate to resuscitate one of its most profitable franchises, a writer who later disowned the finished movie (and wasn't afraid to be vocal about it) and what do you get? The weird, gloopy, tonally incongruous Alien: Resurrection, aka the ugly duckling of the Alien franchise, and the one that killed off Ellen Ripley and the xenomorphs for good. Instead of resurrecting the Alien franchise, the fourth Alien film buried it.

"They said the lines... wrong," opined writer Joss Whedon in 2006, years after the film's 1997 release. "And they cast it wrong. And they designed it wrong. And they scored it wrong. They did everything wrong that they could possibly do." Whedon was biased. Of course he was. He wrote the thing imagining a quip-y, taut little horror movie that mashed Ridley Scott with James Cameron. In short, he imagined Firefly with xenomorphs. »

StreamFix: 5 Weird Movies Starring Oscar Nominees on Netflix Now

18 February 2015 4:47 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There is only one correct way to prepare for the Oscars: resentfully watching every bad, dubious, or weird movie starring this year's honorees and feeling smug about it. StreamFix is here to help. Here are five weird choices streaming on Netflix to get you caught up on some of the 2014 nominees. "Chalet Girl" with Felicity Jones Felicity Jones would have more of a chance at an Oscar if she just called herself "the other Carey Mulligan" and dealt with it. Anyway, remember "Chalet Girl"? It was about Felicity Jones and Ed Westwick enjoying wonderful times on the slopes. Let us consult The New York Times' review for some insight into this cinematic journey: "'Chalet Girl' may not be particularly creative or genre busting or even a great example of a romantic comedy. But its premise might make you smile." I know I always go to the movies for »

Experimenter Movie Review

15 February 2015 7:16 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Experimenter Director: Michael Almereyda Starring: Peter Sarsgaard, Winona Ryder, Jim Gaffigan, Kellan Lutz, Taryn Manning, John Leguizamo The 1960s were an extraordinarily eye-opening time that saw many scientific achievements and discoveries. Many experiments were conducted to probe into aspects of human behavior that had not previously been explored or questioned, and which produced surprising and disquieting results. One study was that conducted by social psychologist Stanley Milgram, which tested ordinary people to see how much pain they were willing to inflict on a stranger simply because the parameters of the experiment told them that is what they must do. Experimenter highlights unquestionably fascinating research, and it succeeds occasionally but  [ Read More ]

A Brief History of Film Romance: Flappers, Hippies, Rebels and Hipsters

13 February 2015 9:46 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In one hundred years of film, the basic formula has never wavered: if you want to leave them smiling, end with a kiss. But while all screen kisses may be heart-warming, they've looked very different since the dawn of cinema. Here's a look at the history of screen romance, by the decades:   Decade: 1920’s Romantic Ideals: Rudolph Valentino and Greta Garbo Their Day Jobs: Sheik and coat-check girl How They Meet: Trapped in a desert oasis while traveling under a secret identity Obstacle in their Path: Her drunken husband, his nattering wives, Hammurabi’s code condemning to death all who gaze upon a member of the tribe. Big Cool Friend’s Advice: “Sail to the ends of the earth, where a man may forget.” Final Kiss Location: Under a full moon atop Mount Kilimanjaro. Watch Party Streaming Pick: “The Sheik”   Decade: 1930’s Romantic Ideals: Jean Arthur and Cary Grant Their Day Jobs: Con-woman and paleontologist. »

Johnny Depp: From Hot Prodigy to Rock 'n' Roll Pirate

8 February 2015 7:05 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It seems like just yesterday Johnny Depp was charming small-screen audiences on 21 Jump Street, but since his big break in the '80s, Johnny has evolved from teen heartthrob to established leading man. Over the years, he's brought us memorable characters like Gilbert Grape, Edward Scissorhands, and Jack Sparrow and has taken on tons of different looks both on and off screen. In honor of his recent marriage to Amber Heard, we're charting Johnny Depp's evolution from fresh-faced hottie (the Kate Moss, Winona Ryder, Viper Room days) to the hat-wearing, guitar-playing king of Hollywood. See the full transformation when you keep reading. »

Heather’s Favorite Accidental Killers in Cinema

6 February 2015 10:54 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After recently watching Marjane Satrapi’s The Voices –a darkly comedic tale about a nice guy who accidentally stumbles into the life of a serial killer- it got me to thinking about some of my other favorite ‘accidental’ killers from cinema over the years. From Veronica Sawyer to Seymour Krelborn to the lovable hillbillies by the name of Tucker and Dale or even the “Flawless Four” from Jawbreaker, here’s a look at some of my other favorite coincidental murderers.

Be forewarned though, some of this may end up being a bit in the spoiler territory so if you haven’t seen any of these films in particular, you may want to skip ahead just in case.

Veronica Sawyer- Heathers: When your best friends are the bitchiest and most powerful group in your high school, that may be enough to drive anyone to murder. For Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder) though, »

Sundance Quick Takes: Ten Thousand Saints, Results, Experimenter

4 February 2015 5:12 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Michael C with a roundup of three Sundance titles we haven't discussed yet.

Ten Thousand Saints

Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s Ten Thousand Saints makes the mistake of thinking that merely by placing their characters adjacent to interesting times, interest will rub off them. Saints does a beautiful job evoking Manhattan in the 1980’s touching on the Tompkin’s Square Park riots, the Cbgb music scene and more. The problem is that foreground is populated with a singularly uninteresting cast of characters working through a coming-of-age formula we’ve seen executed with more spirit and vitality in countless better films. The lead actors do what they can with their thin wisps of character, none too successfully. There is Hugo’s Asa Butterfield, True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld, and Emile Hirsch as the front man for a hardcore straight edge band. Together they deal with unintended pregnancy, drug overdoses, »

Oscar nominee Michael Keaton says he's ready to get reacquainted with one of his iconic roles. With buzz building for a possible follow-up to Beetlejuice, director Tim Burton's 1988 horror-comedy in which Keaton memorably starred as a manic, demented spirit alongside costars Winona Ryder, Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin, Keaton tells People he's excited about the prospect of reuniting with Burton, who also directed him in two Batman films.

Emotions run high at Santa Barbara tribute to Michael Keaton

1 February 2015 9:57 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Barbara — Saturday night the Santa Barbara International Film Festival shook things up a bit with the annual Modern Master Award tribute, this year dedicated to "Birdman" star Michael Keaton. Colleagues and co-stars sent pre-recorded messages to honor the actor, emotions ran high at the end of the evening and the fest had a special surprise in store for moderator Leonard Maltin as well. First, the retrospective. It was a typical deep dive into a career, the highlights of which you can read in our recent series of interviews with the actor. Keaton was clearly overwhelmed by seeing things in this context as his "Multiplicity" co-star Andie MacDowell was on hand to present an introductory clip package of career highlights. "I feel like I'm gonna pass out," he said as he took the stage to begin the evening. Maltin noted Keaton's first scene from "Night Shift," as we hear the »

Sundance ’15: ‘Me & Earl and the Dying Girl’ wins Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award

1 February 2015 8:17 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a bidding war that netted the film a sale of $12 million, a record at Sundance, the much hyped Me & Earl and the Dying Girl won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award from the Sundance Film Festival Awards Saturday evening. The previous film to win both prizes was 2014’s Whiplash, which is now up for an Oscar nomination for Best Picture.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (our own Dylan Griffin raved about it) tells the story of an anti-social high school senior who is forced by his mother to become friends with a girl suffering from leukemia. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Glee, American Horror Story), the film stars Thomas Mann, Rj Cyler, Olivia Cooke, Nick Offerman, Connie Britton, and Molly Shannon.

Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush are now planning a 2015 release for the film. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was selected by a jury that included Cary Fukunaga, »

‘Me And Earl And The Dying Girl’ Takes Top Dramatic Honors At Sundance; Is It The Next ‘Whiplash’? – Winners List

31 January 2015 8:15 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Updated with details and quotes: The Sundance Film Festival awards ceremony tonight in Park City saw a dramatic dual decision and strong political voices to put a cap on a hot-deals festival. Like last year, when Whiplash took both the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award on its way to an Best Picture Oscar nomination, the much-sought Me And Earl And The Dying Girl took both this year.

“I want to dedicate this to all the young filmmakers in my hometown of Laredo, Texas,” said director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon onstage. Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush teamed to land the pic earlier this week after frenzied bidding, with a 2015 release planned. The Jesse Andrews script follows Greg, who is coasting through senior year of high school as anonymously as possible, avoiding social interactions like the plague while secretly making spirited, bizarre films with Earl, his only friend.
