10 of geek cinema's more curious quirks of fate

10 July 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We take a light-hearted look at a few of the more strange coincidences and quirks of fate in recent cinema history...

Top 10

Stories are often built on coincidences and happenstance. Chance encounters at railway stations. Bruce Willis bumping into Ving Rhames while he's out and about in his Honda in Pulp Fiction. But what about those weird patterns we see in our everyday reality, or, more to the point, in cinema history?

When Batman Begins came out, it was widely noted that Christian Bale had already played an unfathomably rich man with a secret double life before, in Mary Harron's adaptation of American Psycho. Bale's character, Patrick Bateman, even has a surname that's basically Batman with an 'e' added to it.

Those are the kinds of strange quirks of fate we're looking at here. If you have any of your own, do share them in the comments section.

In Defence Of... Michael Bay, Hollywood's action movie king

10 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chances are, if you hear the name Michael Bay, you will probably think of a combination of words including 'crap', 'explosions', 'lame' or 'silly hair'.

The big budget filmmaker has risen in the ranks over the past couple of decades to become one of the highest grossing director of all time (sitting alongside Steven Spielberg, James Cameron and company). Clearly, his films are hugely popular. So why all the hate?

Despite the continued box office success, Bay's films are more often than not critically panned, and it's not often that you'll hear people owning up to be a fan, but are his films as bad as everyone makes out?

Several critics, including Film Comment editor Scott Foundas, have labelled Bay as an auteur of his chosen art form. When you watch a Bay movie, you know you're watching a Bay movie. He has his own clear visual style, and that's »

Washed-up private eye Joe Hallenbeck (Bruce Willis) hooks up with down-and-out ex-quarterback Jimmy Dix (Damon Wayans) to try to find out who murdered the football player's stripper girlfriend (Halle Berry). The trail leads into a violent world of political corruption and high-stakes gambling as bullets fly and the body count gets higher. Director Tony Scott is an old hand at this turb-charged mayhem while Shane Black's script feeds Willis plenty of wisecracks. »

This Short Film Proves How Funny (and Complicated) Time Travel Can Be

7 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why Watch? Let’s say you tell your friend that if you ever love a Michael Bay movie, he should just go ahead and kill you. Then, 10 years later, you rave about Bay’s latest (a heartfelt remake of My Fair Lady), and your pal shows up on your doorstep with a gun. He’d only be doing his duty, right? Even more complicated, in a world where time travel exists, what authority do you have to make decisions that will affect your future self? This excellent short film from director Bo Mirosseni and writer Elisha Yaffe (presented by Partizan Films) toys with the more mundane uses of the profoundly powerful tool, proving that it’ll be the personal things (and probably not assassination attempts on Hitler) that will do the most damage. Time Travel Lover is a hilarious — often dispiriting — exercise in having a plan laid out before you that you never asked to see.

Video: Jessica Alba gets a creepy makeover in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' clip

7 July 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Jessica Alba is back as stripper Nancy Callahan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But it appears as though Nancy’s been having a hard time since her mentor, John Hartigan (Bruce Willis), committed suicide in the last film. In the new clip, we see her in the bathroom talking to her reflection. “Maybe I’ll prove both you wrong,” she says. “Maybe I’ll go crazy. Crazy’s sounding pretty good right now.” She then proceeds to chop off all of her hair with a pair of scissors.

The next time we see her, she’s sitting »

Jessica Alba Goes Dark in New ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ Clip

7 July 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sin City was one of the best films 2005 and this summer sees the long-awaited sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For finally arrive. Fans of Frank Millers graphic novel series flocked to the cinema to see Robert Rodriguez’s first movie which was also a hit with those not familiar with the paper origins.

It was hoped that a sequel would be released in quick succession however Rodriguez and Miller have kept us waiting. In the meantime most of the stars saw their star rating soar with the likes of Clive Owen and Jessica Alba being bumped all the way up to A-listers. Whilst Owen won’t be returning for a second outing, his role is now being played by Josh Brolin, Alba is once more back to help director and close friend Rodriguez out.

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 7th 2014

I’m back! It’s been a long time and I apologise for that, moving house turned out to be a far far longer process than I anticipated or had been led to believe. Three weeks turned into six, six weeks turned into three months and now here we are.

Aside from the length of time it takes, moving house was a real eye opener in other areas too. Specifically in terms of how I inform you week on week of all of this wonderful content available to stream and then how you have to put up with lacklustre delivery from various ISPs.  I was living in someone else’s house on a connection that was not my own, not wanting to name names but there is one of the big three ISP’s in the UK which boasts about having one of, if not the, fastest broadband delivery on »

Top 10 Ensemble Comedies

7 July 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ensemble comedies are a mainstay of classic cinema – from crime capers to family drama-comedies, the sub-genre is a tricky one to get right – but nothing lights up the screen quite like a cast that just click.

With The Stag released on digital platforms from the 7th July and on Blu-ray and DVD from the 21st July courtesy of Arrow Films, we recount the most memorable ensemble comedies to date…

10. Moonrise Kingdom

(Wes Anderson, 2012 )

Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola were nominated for a Best Screenplay Oscar for this charming, suitably offbeat tale of two youngsters who flee their New England town, causing a local search party to fan out to find them. Typically of an Anderson film, the cast is a who’s-who of Hollywood talent, including Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Bill Murray, while the New England setting proves utterly apt for this funny, romantic (and admittedly, slightly warped) love story. »
