Arrow, the Blacklist: TV that definitely isn't the new cinema

15 November 2013 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Tired of watching intricate dramas with epic pretensions? Here are six current series that are actual fun

Arrow

Reading this on mobile? Click here to view

Green Arrow was introduced to DC Comics readers in the 1940s as a kind of Batman with a bow. In the 70s and 80s, the Emerald Archer was reinvented as a wise-cracking leftie tackling eco-crimes. This latest version is more of a superhero soap: Revenge with hooded vigilantes. Smartly realising that the origin story is always one of the strongest elements of any superhero narrative, ongoing flashbacks show shipwrecked party boy Oliver Queen being put through crime-fighter bootcamp. After the mini-apocalypse finale of the first series, he's now sworn off his more extreme tactics (ie murder), while the writers continue to raid the DC toybox, adding Black Canary and the League Of Assassins.

Arrow continues Monday, 8pm, Sky1

They Are Making A "Lake Placid vs. Anaconda"

5 November 2013 5:54 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two creature feature franchises are coming together in the direct-to-disc release "Lake Placid vs Anaconda".

1997's giant snake feature "Anaconda" was a straight up creature feature about a "National Geographic" film crew taken hostage by an insane Paraguayan hunter who is out to capture the world's largest snake. Jennifer Lopez, Jon Voight, Ice Cube, Own Wilson, Eric Stoltz, and Danny Trejo starred.

"Boston Legal" creator David E. Kelly wrote 1999's "Lake Placid" about a giant crocodile terrorising an idyllic lake in the United States. The cast included Bridget Fonda, Bill Pullman, Oliver Platt, Brendan Gleeson, Mariska Hargitay and a foul-mouthed Betty White.

Both turned out to be solid little earners from relatively tight budgets. As a result, increasingly silly and lesser seen sequels were greenlit - both franchises ending up with four entires, almost all of which went direct to disc.

Now, rights to both franchises have ended up at »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – November 4th 2013

5 November 2013 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Well it finally happened; Now TV added a superb catch up/live option for their TV channels including Sky Atlantic, Living, Fox and even UK Gold! So now for just £4.99 a month you can get shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Hannibal and Eastbound and Down as they happen or whenever you want.

Considering that the movies package is now just £8.99 a month and the TV is £4.99 on top of this, it becomes clear that this is probably going to place them as the major contender now and Lovefilm/Amazon and Netflix need to start cranking out those exclusive series’ with major names pretty fast.

The term “All sewn up” comes to mind.

The Guilt Trip (2012)

This light comedy with Seth Rogen as a put upon entrepreneur and Barbara Streisand as his overbearing mother is worlds away from other comedy Rogen has been in before. It’s more »

Sony Combining Two Film Franchises in Lake Placid vs Anaconda

4 November 2013 7:02 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Asylum and the Syfy Channel have been making creature movies, combined from different animals and weather, for years. And now comes word that two theatrical films, "Anaconda" and "Lake Placid," are coming together in a new direct-to-dvd release called "Lake Placid vs Anaconda." "Anaconda" was released in 1997 and starred Jennifer Lopez and Jon Voight. The giant snake film grossed $137 million worldwide and received a sequel in 2004, which grossed $70 million on a budget of only $20 million. Two more straight to DVD sequels followed. "Lake Placid" was released in 1999 and starred Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda, Oliver Platt, Brendan Gleeson and Betty White. Even though the crocodile movie was only able to earn $57 million worldwide on a budget of $35 million, the franchise received three sequels. Both franchises belonged to two different studios (Fox and Sony), but somehow ended up at Sony. The plan now is to begin shooting "Lake Placid vs Anaconda" in early December in Bulgaria. »

Giant Crocodiles Will Fight a Monster Snake in Lake Placid Vs. Anaconda!

4 November 2013 2:45 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Lake Placid and Anaconda franchises are set to collide in the upcoming feature Lake Placid Vs. Anaconda. Production is slated to begin this December in Bulgaria, although it isn't known who is writing, directing or starring in this direct-to-video release.

No story details have been confirmed, although the vicious crocodiles of Lake Placid will undoubtedly come in contact with a gigantic Anaconda, and they will have an epic water battle unlike anything seen before.

The Anaconda franchise was launched in 1997 with a theatrical feature that starred Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube and Jon Voight. It spanwned the straight-to-video sequels Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (2004), Anaconda 3: The Offspring (2006) and Anaconda 4: Trail of Blood (2009).

1999's Lake Placid was also a theatrical offering, starring Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda and Oliver Platt, before spawning the straight-to video sequels Lake Placid 2 (2007), Lake Placid 3 (2010) and last year's Lake Placid: The Final Chapter. »

5 Greatest Movies Featuring A Win On The Lottery

9 October 2013 2:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Be honest: every time you play the lottery, the same fantasy runs through your head, of you sitting in a bath full of champagne, wearing a top hat and monocle, and throwing wads of cash into the air gleefully. Before you’ve even left the shop, you’ve spent half the money that you’re almost definitely destined to win, no matter what the actual odds.

Feeding this fantasy is the many, many movies that have involved lottery wins, and the results for the winners. They are invariably everyman characters, just like you, who need an escape from the mediocrity of mundane life, and who see their universe changed entirely by the huge injection of cash brought when the right numbers come in.

Now more than ever, the experience of buying a ticket is even easier, so that dream can be fed without even needing to go to the shop, »

Waitress Receives a Lottery Ticket as a Tip, Wins $17,500

7 October 2013 10:11 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's like something out of a movie. Literally. The movie is It Could Happen to You, starring Nicolas Cage and Bridget Fonda. And it did happen, for Aurora Kephart, a 25-year-old waitress and bartender at Conway's Restaurant and Lounge in Springfield, Ore., who regularly receives lottery tickets in lieu of tips from her regulars. "He buys multiple tickets and he'll hold out the tickets and say, 'Pick which one you want,'" she told ABC News about one customer in particular. "That's a normal thing between us."  Recently, he let her pick two unplayed Keno tickets. She did and won $5 on the first ticket that she scanned. Not too shabby! She then scanned the second one »

Danny Elfman on Tim Burton, The Simpsons and his return to singing live

2 October 2013 4:29 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He scores Tim Burton's films, wrote The Simpsons theme tune, and met his wife Bridget Fonda on set. But Danny Elfman still yearns for the mosh pit

While Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are widely considered to be joined at the hairdo – an emo-hipster version of Scorsese and De Niro – it's composer Danny Elfman who has been the director's most loyal and enduring collaborator. Think of any of Burton's deranged goth-com fantasies, from Beetlejuice and Batman to Sleepy Hollow and Frankenweenie, and it will be Elfman's barbed and bouncy compositions that spring to mind as readily as man-child misfit heroes or morbid, arachnophile art design.

Elfman, now 60, was the frontman of performance art outfit turned rock band Oingo Boingo when Burton asked him to score his 1985 debut film, the comic road movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure. Only twice since then has Elfman surrendered the baton on a Tim Burton »

Top 50 underappreciated comedy films of the past 30 years

19 September 2013 8:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Simon Brew 20 Sep 2013 - 07:14

They don't make funny movies any more, right? Wrong. If you're looking for a laugh, then here are some you may have missed...

For this list, blame The Hangover Part III. It was whilst walking out of that film that I got into a chat with someone, who was bemoaning the lack of genuinely funny movie comedies. Certainly, big budget Hollywood comedies have no end of problems right now - with the occasional exception - but I couldn't help thinking of the many neglected gems that had gone through my DVD player over the past decade or so.

As such, I started to put this list together. It's inevitably subjective, as one person's comedy is another person's snore fest. But I've tried to dig out a mix of comedies from the past three decades that have either flown under the radar completely, or »

Giant rabbits, blood-thirsty sheep: 12 films where animals attack

22 August 2013 9:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Timur Bekmambetov's upcoming horror flick Squirrels has already been dubbed the new Sharknado across social media following the recent release of its trailer.

A new poster has followed today (August 22), featuring a squirrel nibbling on a severed human finger along with the tagline: "Hold onto your nuts".

We know we can't wait to see it, so in anticipation we look back at 12 other films where good animals go bad (or just where very bad ones attack). From bloodthirsty squirrels to giant, mutant rabbits - take a look at your peril below.

The Birds (1963)

Strange seagulls and other creepy winged creatures turn on a beautiful socialite (Tippi Hedren) in a small Northern California town in Alfred Hitchcock's atmospheric thriller, based on a short story by Daphne Du Maurier.

5 Must-See Elmore Leonard Adaptations

20 August 2013 10:31 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Elmore Leonard, known for his gritty crime novels and westerns populated by colorful, offbeat characters, died on Tuesday morning from complications from a stroke. He was 87. Many of his projects were adapted to the big screen, and we've rounded up five must-see movie and TV adaptations that best exemplify what Leonard's work was all about.

Pics: Hollywood's Hottest Movie Posters

Out of Sight

Arguably the best adaptation of Leonard's work, this 1998 Steven Soderbergh-directed film stars George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez as a con and cop, respectively, who unwittingly fall for each other despite being on opposite sides of the law. Initially trapped in a trunk together, the career criminal and the U.S. Marshall create serious sparks, forcing Lopez's character to wrestle with her conscience as Clooney heads to Detroit to pull off one final heist. The film co-stars Don Cheadle, Ving Rhames, Dennis Farina, Steve Zahn, Albert Brooks and Michael Keaton, who reprises »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Viewer’s Guide – July 2013

15 July 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In a manner similar to what happens with the television schedules, the streaming services suddenly go quiet in the summer. For true cinema fans this is pretty good news because the art house stuff comes along as well as some of the better catalogue titles that might have appeared elsewhere before.

It will probably be September before any subscription winning blockbusters are added again but the smart money is on one of the big ones adding The Avengers and (fingers crossed) the last season of Breaking Bad.

By the time you read this, the new Netflix exclusive series Orange is the New Black from the creator of Weeds, will be available on Netflix. Early word is that it’s actually the best Netflix exclusive title so far, which is good news after the horrendous Hemlock Grove. I will weigh in with an opinion next month.

South Of Heaven, West Of Hell – The DVD Review

3 July 2013 9:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Sam Moffitt

I think everybody knows Dwight Yoakum as a hell of a good singer, an excellent song writer and one of Country music’s biggest stars. How many people know he directed a terrific western with all the elements we expect of a good western movie?

Yoakum shocked me, quite frankly, with his appearance in Sling Blade, Billy Bob Thornton’s masterpiece. From everything I’ve heard Yoakum is a very nice guy with his feet firmly on the ground and treats his fans with a great deal of respect. In Sling Blade he was all too believable as a complete son of a bitch. Where did a non actor get those kind of chops? In fact he is so good at playing an evil character it’s shocking. When Carl finally lays into him to put an end to it you want to stand up and cheer. »

Jug Face movie adds second eerie poster - Lauren Ashley Carter stars

14 May 2013 12:58 AM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

This is one freaky poster for Chad Crawford Kinkle's Jug Face horror, starring Lauren Ashley Carter, Sean Bridgers and Sean Young. Modernciné distributes the film theatrically, with Gravitas Ventures holding video ad VOD distribution. Also in the cast are Larry Fessender and Daniel Manche. That Tagline above reminds me of Lake Placid where Bridget Fonda's work colleague and friend Myra (Mariska Hargitay) states "The heart wants what the heart wants" in a response to her stealing Kelly's (Fonda) boyfriend. The film was seen at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and we don't have a release date as of this time. »

Cannes: Caton-Jones to Helm ‘Mr. Jones’ (Exclusive)

13 May 2013 5:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes — Scottish helmer Michael Caton-Jones is set to make his bigscreen comeback with London-set sexy romance “The Amazing Mr. Jones.”

In the run up to Cannes, uMedia has come on board to handle worldwide sales, and will co-produce along with Lauri Apelian’s Ocean Sky Ent. and Jens Meurer at Egoli Tossell.

Deal was announced Monday by uMedia’s founder and CEO, Adrian Politowski.

Penned by Robert Payne, “Jones” turns on a passionate, yet complicated affair between a beautiful woman married to a wealthy politician and a younger ex-serviceman from a very different background.

“It’s often said that there are no good roles for women these days. ‘The Amazing Mr. Jones’ well and truly blows that idea out the water with its achingly accurate portrayal of one woman’s journey through the modern minefield of life,” said Caton-Jones.

Politowski said, “Michael is a powerful voice in cinema and the »

Top Ten: Non-Nominated Best Supporting Actresses, 1980s Division

23 April 2013 8:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Whew. That title is a mouthful. I know you already know what I mean though, you golden fiends. This very impromptu post is brought to you by a recent Tribeca revival screening of Martin Scorsese's indelible King of Comedy (1983) and this Movie Line interview with Sandra Bernhard herself -- to whom I'm dedicating the list -- who couldn't make it but definitely helped make the movie what it is. My one and only back and forth conversation with Sandra -- over Twitter, the sometimes leveler -- involved how freaking robbed she was for an Oscar nomination for that movie. I couldn't believe I was talking to her but I was not the least bit in doubt that she'd agree with me.

Clip joint: unexpected deaths

11 April 2013 2:03 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The element of surprise packs a powerful punch in the world of cinema, especially when a lead character is killed off. So what are the five best unexpected on-screen deaths?

This week's Clip joint is by Tom Grater, a London-based film writer and founder of entertainment website Tom's Cinema. You can also follow him on Twitter @tomsmovies. If you've got an idea for a future Clip joint, drop an email to adam.boult@guardian.co.uk.

In a world where any successful trope of film is regurgitated to death, directors have an increasingly difficult job if they want to catch us off our guard and deliver a genuine surprise. An unexpected death, particularly of a central character, is a plot twist that film-makers often fall back on when they want to shake their audience up. Below are five of the best examples.
