Film Review: ‘Pete’s Dragon’

27 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The original “Pete's Dragon” is, without a doubt, one of the most eccentric entries in the Disney canon — an almost hallucinatory live-action/animation hybrid, crammed wall-to-wall with singing, about a 9-year-old orphan and his magical pink-and-green sidekick, whom practically nobody else can see. One had to be either Pete’s age or a puff-draggin’ enthusiast to appreciate the trippy film when it came out, and time has only rendered the movie that much weirder — which makes it a far better candidate for a Mouse House remake than many of the studio’s more universally beloved classics.

Reimagined nearly four decades later, Disney’s in-name-only “Pete’s Dragon” reboot trades the earlier version’s goofy cartoony sensibility for a sort of stylized realism, one in which everything looks a bit too good to be true (including the stunning Weta Digital-animated dragon himself), and yet the story is geared in »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Purple Rain’ opened in theaters

27 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

32 years ago today, the acting debut of a music icon we lost this year opened in theaters. Audiences were first treated to Purple Rain on July 27, 1984. Purple Rain proved that Prince could be just as captivating in a feature-length film as he was onstage and in music videos. The rock musical debuted a month after the album of the same name hit record stores, giving us such hits as “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and “I Would Die 4 U.” Other notable July 27 happenings in pop culture history; • 1940: Bugs Bunny made his official debut at a screening of the short film A Wild Hare. • 1979: The Amityville Horror opened in theaters. • 1982: Little Shop of Horrors had its Off-Broadway opening at the Orpheum Theatre. The writing team behind the wacky musical, Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, went on to write some of Disney Animation’s most beloved songs. »

'Stranger Things' creators explain it all about season 1

27 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I really enjoyed Netflix's Stranger Things, an unapologetic tribute to the works of Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, John Carpenter, and other masters of suspense and horror that creators Matt and Ross Duffer grew up loving. (Here's my initial review, and here are some spoiler-heavy thoughts on the season.) Yesterday, I spoke with the Duffer brothers about how they drew the line between homage and straight-up thievery, why the season was only 8 episodes (a length I think more Netflix dramas should try), why actor Gaten Matarazzo deserves so much credit for making Dustin the show's most entertaining character, what a potential second season would be like, and more. That's all coming up just as soon as you give me this phone, two weeks advance, and a pack of Camels... Where did you draw the line between paying homage to all those great movies and books of the period and trying to tell your own story? »

Evolution of Winona Ryder, From ‘Beetlejuice’ to ‘Stranger Things’ (Photos)

26 July 2016 3:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Over the last 30 years, Winona Ryder has played everything from a disillusioned high schooler to a stressed-out mom. Check out how she’s evolved onscreen. “Lucas” (1986) Ryder was just 14 when she made her screen debut in this coming-of-age story, playing the best friend to a lonely high-school nerd. “Beetlejuice” (1988) Ryder’s big breakthrough came in Tim Burton‘s comic horror fantasy, playing goth teenager Lydia, whose parents are haunted by an irritating spirit played by Michael Keaton. “Heathers” (1989) One of the biggest cult films of the ’80s, with Ryder playing an intelligent high schooler battling conformity and shallowness among her peers. »

Evil Dead: another movie is possible, says Fede Alvarez

Edward Douglas Jul 27, 2016

If the Evil Dead franchise wants to rise again, they'll have to find the right tone to go with Ash vs Evil Dead...

This story is from Den Of Geek Us

The 2013 remake of Evil Dead was quite significant, not only for bringing back a franchise, which filmmaker Sam Raimi hadn’t explored since his 1992 movie Army of Darkness, but also because it introduced much of the world to Uruguay-born director Fede Alvarez

Alvarez’s second feature, the unsettling home invasion thriller Don’t Breathe, will open in the next month, but since Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell have brought back the popular character of “Ash” Williams for their hit Starz television series Ash vs. Evil Dead, many fans have wondered whether we might ever see a direct sequel to Alvarez’s film.

Much of the talk at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend was about the »

12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

Star Trek Beyond review

15 July 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Published Date  Friday, July 15, 2016 - 20:00

Ever since Jj Abrams launched the rebooted, more action-oriented Star Trek franchise in 2009, the Enterprise crew's five-year mission has remained tantalisingly out of reach. The first in the series - an effervescent, often charming introduction to the new Kirk, Spock, Bones and so on - teased the possibility of space exploration with its "where no one has gone before" voice over. But 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness saw the mission postponed yet again thanks in part to the murderous antics of one John Harrison - a rasping-voiced, predatory Benedict Cumberbatch.

Star Trek Beyond, on the other hand, finally sees Kirk and his crew head off into the final frontier. The emphasis on fast-pacing and action from the previous two movies is still front-and-centre, but Beyond still feels more like an episode of the Original Series writ large than either of Jj Abrams' earlier entries. »

In appreciation of Eva Green, one of Hollywood's great underutilized assets

6 July 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first real rabid Penny Dreadful fan I talked to was Greg Ellwood here at HitFix. He was a steadfast believer the entire time it was on the air, and he encouraged me to watch it. I was busy cutting the cord, though, moving away from cable subscriptions. I had no cable in the house, none in my office, and chose not to watch anything on TV. I used Hulu, Netflix, HBO Now, Amazon Prime. And if a show didn’t land in one of the services I used, then it just went on a list of things to watch someday. Maybe. Today is that day for Penny Dreadful for me. After Greg, the person who really picked up that ongoing advocacy for the show was Brian Duffield, who shares my deep abiding love of Eva Green’s work, and he has always been insistent that I was missing some »

Ivan Reitman: Why We're Still Talking About 'Ghostbusters' 30 Years Later

6 July 2016 7:23 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Comedy may be the most subjective of genres, but Ivan Reitman knows what the people want. Over the course of his 40-plus-year career as a director, producer, and writer, the Slovakia-born/Canada-bred filmmaker has been a key player in some of Hollywood's most iconic comedies — Animal House, Meatballs, and Stripes among them. But few films have amassed as passionate a following as one particular hit: Ghostbusters.

Originally conceived of as a space-set ensemble piece and starring vehicle for Dan Aykroyd (who wrote it) and John Belushi, the horror-comedy-sci-fi-family-film hybrid eventually »

Gene Wilder Opens Up About Making of ‘Willy Wonka’ and ‘Young Frankenstein’ – Watch

5 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Public sightings of iconic actor Gene Wilder are as rare these days as public sightings of Willy Wonka (or Arthur Halliday). Three years ago, the retiree spoke with Robert Osborne at the 92nd Street Y in New York City in a rare public appearance. He discussed filming Mel Brooks classics like “Young Frankenstein” and “The Producers,” making Willy Wonka into his own and the state of modern Hollywood (including remakes of his own films!). The results will make you wish you could see Wilder back on the big screen.

It’s safe to assume Wilder has an old sensibility towards the industry. In this talk, he touches on his dislike for profanity in today’s films (“When they’re swearing… can’t they just stop and talk? Instead of swearing?”), confusion over what a podcast is (“Would I come on your what? »

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

J.K. Simmons Is One “Badass” Jim Gordon In Justice League

2 July 2016 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When we think of Batman’s corner of the DC Universe and the many supporting characters who inhabit it, it’s impossible to not have Commissioner Jim Gordon spring to mind. Not only has he been a part of nearly live action and animated Batman offering on film, but the stalwart cop has been around as long as Batman himself, first appearing in 1939’s Detective Comics #27. So, it is only fitting that a new actor, in this case the talented J.K. Simmons, carry the torch in the latest continuity of films, with his first appearance being in Justice League.

Although Simmons has already filmed some scenes for DC’s premier superhero team’s debut on the silver screen, he’s apparently not quite finished and will soon head back to London to shoot a bit more. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, here’s what he had to say about his time »
