The Revelations Of Raising Cain Recut

24 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

When Brian De Palma’s Raising Cain bowed in American theaters during the summer of 1992, it was anticipated by fans of the director as a welcome return to the sort of formalist genre contraption he hadn’t indulged in since the creative blow-out (forgive me) of Body Double eight years earlier. However, when the lights came up, even within the ranks of the De Palma faithful there was polarization. A handful defended it as one of the director’s masterpieces, while a greater number seemed to consider it at best middle-tier De Palma, a fully committed attempt to deal with typical De Palma-esque narrative elasticity and thematic concerns such as time, chronology and dream logic, all in the context of an examination of the morphing perimeters of American masculinity and parental responsibility which somehow, in the end, seemed as out of balance as its psychically fractured protagonist. Meanwhile, the »

The 20 Funniest Movies Ever Made

23 September 2016 8:29 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Comedy is very subjective but a great comedy will stand the test of time and continue to make generation after generation laugh. Some people like their humor dry, while some like it shocking and offensive. Whatever your taste, good humor will always be out there. Here are 20 great comedies that will no doubt continue to be appreciated in the future.

 20. Fargo: The Cohen Brothers funniest black comedy may not be for everyone's taste, because it is quite violent. However, underneath all that is a droll observation on the human condition, highlighted by a winning performance from Frances McDormand as a very likeable and very pregnant police chief. Her character police chief Marge Gunderson is kind, clever and compassionate. She’s a much more admirable role model than all the recent ‘badass female’ clichés we’ve been inundated with lately. Another standout here is William H. Macy as a two-bit schemer who's plan utterly backfires. »

‘Captain America’ Conquers DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Charts

22 September 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Captain America: Civil War,” the latest Marvel Studios superhero blockbuster, shot straight to the top of both national home video sales charts upon its release last week.

The third “Captain America” film rode its $408.1 domestic theatrical gross to a No. 1 debut on both Npd VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ended Sept. 18.

The 13th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe line is one of those rare sequels with a bigger theatrical take than either of its two predecessors. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier: (2014) earned $260 million, while the original 2011 “Captain America: The First Avenger” made $177 million.

The horror sequel “The Conjuring 2,” from Warner, debuted at a distant No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart, selling just 10% as many copies as “Captain America.”

Walt Disney’s live-action “The Jungle Book” remake, at the top of both charts the two previous two weeks, »

Jeremy Irons Tells BAFTA Audience About Streep, De Niro and The ‘Creepy’ Characters of His Illustrious Career

13 September 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jeremy Irons is in many respects the quintessential English film actor. That’s not simply because of the honeyed diction and innate elegance, but the versatility that has enabled him to travel with ease between romantic leading man, edgy character actor and sinister villain, towards an Indian summer of ever-dependable supporting player.

Think James Mason. In fact, Irons and Mason even have a role in common – the riskiest of roles, Nabokov’s infamous pedophile Humbert Humbert, Mason most famously in Kubrick’s “Lolita” of 1962, Irons for Adrian Lyne in 1997. It’s difficult to imagine many Americans jumping at a character who came second in Time’s “Top 10 Worst Fictional Fathers,” or possessing the nuance necessary to make us almost like the man.

Again like many Brits, Irons is classically trained (at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, »

‘Max Steel’ Trailer: Mattel’s Action Figure Line Gets Live Action Treatment

31 August 2016 4:12 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

About his role in the infamously terrible Jaws 4: The Revenge, Michael Caine once said “I have never seen the film, but by all accounts it was terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific.” In unrelated news, a new trailer for Max Steel launched earlier today, co-starring the great Andy Garcia in a supporting role for which it looks like he had a lot of fun.

Zach Braff Inks Deal With ABC For New Comedy Series Start Up

30 August 2016 2:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it’s likely to undergo a name change closer to the time – so as to avoid a clash with Crackle’s new drama – Start Up is Zach Braff’s new comedy series that has now found a home at ABC.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that the Garden State and Wish I Was Here will direct and star in Start Up, a project that will herald a reunion between Braff and Scrubs co-executive producer Matt Tarses. Indeed, it was Tarses who hatched the script, one based on Alex Blumberg and Lisa Chow’s titular podcast about the “human side of business.”

Braff, meanwhile, is due to make his long overdue return to serialized content, headlining Start Up as an Average Joe in “his mid-30s with a wife and two kids makes the crazy decision to quit his good job and dive into the brave new world of starting a business. »

DVD & Blu-rays: Jaws sequels, Chuck Norris

30 August 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nick Aldwinckle Sep 2, 2016

Our latest The Bottom Shelf DVD and Blu-ray round-up features Jaws 2, Jaws 3-D, Jaws: The Revenge and Chuck Norris...

With Shark Week arguably America’s most beloved religious festival and the unprecedented worldwide cultural impact of Anthony C. Ferrante’s acclaimed Sharknado trilogy showing no sign of letting up, who could deny the necessity of the Jaws sequels finally getting a Blu-ray release?

The immediate answer is obvious (well, anyone), though this belated look at Jaws 2, Jaws 3-D, Jaws: The Revenge and Jaws 5: The Sharkening was, for this writer at least, a nostalgic journey through a world where morbidly obese fish bear grudges, Michael Caine fights a script far deadlier than any marine predator and where lines such as “Weld that sonuvabitch” are somehow deemed passable.

Generally considered the best of the sequels, perhaps Jaws 2 holds a special place in the heart of the reader who, »

Zach Braff To Direct and Star in New Comedy Pilot ‘Start Up’ at ABC

30 August 2016 8:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Actor Zach Braff received his first break as protagonist J.D. in the NBC medical sitcom “Scrubs,” about the lives of employees at Sacred Heart teaching hospital. The series garnered quite a bit of attention for its single-camera style (generally uncommon for sitcoms when “Scrubs” first aired in 2001), surreal vignettes, use of popular music, and its frequent tonal shifts. For his performance, Braff was nominated for an Emmy in 2005 and thrice nominated for a Golden Globe in 2005, 2006, and 2007.

[Review] Level Up

24 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You watch enough hero-backed-into-a-corner action films like Crank, Taken, or The Equalizer and you start to find your mind drifting away from the sheer monotony of their progression. Their characters are built to survive these situations no matter how dire because people want to see the good guy win. They want to see him risk everything, travel in the murky areas of morality, and be the badass society doesn’t allow them to be, but that ultimate victory is key because escapism only works when your surrogate onscreen walks away. How else could there be a sequel? But what happens when a Joe Schmo is thrust into proving his mettle through the same type of scenario? What would those films look like through a Shaun of the Dead filter?

The answer arrives in the form of Adam Randall‘s Level Up, a high-concept thriller wherein slacker Matt (Josh Bowman) is »

Mr Robot season 2 episode 7 review: Handshake

19 August 2016 1:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alec Bojalad Aug 19, 2016

Mr Robot delivers its best episode yet this season in Handshake, an instalment that reveals what the show has been up to these past weeks...

This review contains spoilers.

2.7 Handshake

Mr Robot loves to trick us.

It’s one of the main appeals of the show. TV as a medium has historically given the viewer what he or she wants. After all, if they’re not satisfied enough to stick around around for the commercials, what’s the point? The joy of Mr Robot and many other shows like it is that it’s willing to openly, sometimes gleefully fuck with us. It deceives us; never gives us a full portrait of what’s going on.

So what happens when viewers are clever enough or simply well-numbered and well-tv-trained enough to see through the illusion? Handshake finally reveals to the audience that many of them were right all along. »

Looking back at Escape To Victory

Dan Cooper Aug 30, 2016

Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine and a good chunk of Ipswich Town Football Club? It can only be Escape To Victory...

These are strange days indeed for fans of the beautiful game - never before has unbridled hope been so freely mixed with jaded cynicism in the sport we love. The result? A jarring draught indeed, a football concoction that is dizzyingly exhilarating yet morosely taxing, much like the homemade ‘bathroom cocktails’ that my sister used to dare me to drink as a child, odd-tasting brews made from shaving foam and perfume that put hairs on my seven-year old chest whilst presumably lopping years off my life.

That paradoxical blend of fair and foul will be familiar to anybody that follows football these days. International minnows Wales have been running roughshod over half of Europe, and Leicester’s unstoppable charge to the Premiership title against all five thousand »

Charlize Theron might be one of the more low-key celebrities in Hollywood when it comes to her personal life, but her work is anything but.

Charlize turns the big 4-0 today, and we’re celebrating with a list of her top movies. She’s been in a lot of films over the years, with as diverse a body of work as any of the best actors in history. Her performance in last year’s Mad Max: Fury Road was a tour de force that completely blew us out of the water, and we can’t wait to see her hop into a high-powered vehicle again in next year's Fast 8.

New to Streaming: ‘Last Days in the Desert,’ Kelly Reichardt, ‘The Little Prince,’ and More

5 August 2016 9:07 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Cloverfield (Matt Reeves)

Science-fiction films don’t get much more immersive than Cloverfield, Matt Reeves‘ thrilling feature debut, putting us directly into the shoes of an alien invasion. One of the rare cases in which intriguing, tight-lipped marketing actually delivered on its promise, this sci-fi found-footage thriller has memorable setpieces at every turn, complete with a sense of genuine panic, a feeling that other post-9/11 films often render as exploitative. »
