Pinball FX3 Review

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As someone who squandered a fair amount of his misspent youth dropping quarter after quarter into various pinball machines housed inside sketchy arcades across the United States, I’ve always appreciated Zen Studio’s deliriously enjoyable Pinball FX series. I’ve sunk countless hours into FX 2 over the years, usually after a long day at work when I just needed some time to unwind. While some might view pinball as an archaic form of entertainment — especially in the complicated realm of modern video games — I’ve always enjoyed the thrill of attempting to obliterate my high score on a table I thought I’d already mastered. Long story short: Pinball FX 2 embodied everything I wanted in a video game version of pinball, at least, until Zen Studio decided to unleash a follow-up.

The newest iteration of the long-running series introduces elements I never knew I’d always wanted. For example, »

‘The Addams Family’ Gets Animated in a New CG Movie from ‘Sausage Party’ Co-Director

13 October 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Originally created by cartoonist Charlie Addams back in 1938, The Addams Family has gone on to enjoy a number of successful adaptations over the years. In 1964, a live-action TV series starring John Astin and Carolyn Jones as Gomez and Morticia Addams came to ABC, with a Halloween TV movie inspired by the show airing in 1977. The fearsome family saw a revival of sorts in the early 90s with a pair of live-action films starring Raul JuliaAnjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd and Christina Ricci.

Addams Family Animated Movie Gets Sausage Party Director

13 October 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After languishing in development for years, MGM is finally moving forward with its The Addams Family animated adaptation, bringing on director Conrad Vernon (Sausage Party) to take the helm. The filmmaker has also been brought on to produce the movie, alongside The Jackal Group's Gail Berman and Alex Schwartz. CG animation work is already under way in Vancouver, but MGM hasn't announced a release date, so it may be quite some time before it hits theaters, but it looks like it's finally on the right track after several years in development.

MGM Studios announced this project back in 2013, setting writer Pamela Pettler (The Corpse Bride) to write the script. Andrew Mittman and Kevin Miserocchi were initially attached as producers at the time, but now they are executive producing, with MGM's executive director Tabitha Shick overseeing the project. Matt Lieberman (Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief) provided revisions on Pamela Pettler's screenplay, »

Film Review: ‘Cold Moon’

3 October 2017 11:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An eccentric mix of veteran actors, Southern Gothicism and neo-noir lends “Cold Moon” a certain charm as a ghostly revenge thriller. This handsome-looking potboiler is well-crafted on various planes, even if telepic and direct-to-video helmer Griff Furst’s mostly game-upping latest feature is also occasionally at tonal odds with the screenplay’s campier “Creepshow”-type horror aspects. Nonetheless, as guilty pleasures go, this one rates a solid B.

Orphaned Jerry Larkin (Chester Rushing) is a sober-minded youth attentive to the financial plight of grandmother Evelyn (Candy Clark) and their family’s Florida blueberry farm — in contrast to high-spirited sister Margaret (Sara Catherine Bellamy). Galavanting around on her bicycle long past when she’s due home, Margaret is attacked by a mysterious, hearse-driving figure on her belated return. He throws her over a bridge, then leaps over himself to ensure she drowns. Afterward, a coroner discovers the 16-year-old was four months pregnant.

The Sound Echoes Off a Stale Plot: A Film Review

21 September 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: an online screener of The Sound was provided by the film's publicity arm. **there are spoilers here. Director/writer: Jenna Mattison. Cast: Rose McGowan, Christopher Lloyd and Michael Eklund. Sometimes, reviews serve as a warning. That is the case with Jenna Mattison's The Sound. Her sophomore feature is a cliche-ridden, very flawed feature. The plot barely progresses from paranormal skeptic, investigating an underground subway tunnel. Instead, it stalls out through much of Act I and II, even into the final act. Barely anything happens as Kelly, played by Rose McGowan, struggles with her own mental instability and disbelief. Meanwhile, the protagonist is nearly one dimensional. And, this viewer wonders, with the lack of scares and gore: who is this horror film was really meant for? Maybe, there is a growing child horror fan base, out there. For everyone else, you need to skip the subway train station that says: "The Sound. »

‘Cold Moon’ Review

8 September 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Josh Stewart, Christopher Lloyd, Robbie Kay, Candy Clark, Frank Whaley, Tommy Wiseau, Madison Wolfe, Laura Cayouette | Written and Directed by Griff Furst

In a sleepy southern town, the Larkin family suffers a terrible tragedy. Now the Larkin’s are about to endure another: Traffic lights blink an eerie warning, a ghostly visage prowls in the streets, and graves erupt from the local cemetery in an implacable march of terror . . . And beneath the murky surface of the river, a shifting, almost human shape slowly takes form to seek a terrible vengeance.

At first glance Cold Moon looks like most other by the numbers horror/thrillers, with a cast of people you will recognize straight away but take a while to place where from. However give it a minute because this movie has some really stellar performances from the core cast which – considering the concept is just bonkers enough to take »

A Nurse Ratched origin series is coming to Netflix

6 September 2017 10:06 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Kirsten Howard Sep 7, 2017

A One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest prequel series about Nurse Ratched is heading to Netflix, starring Sarah Paulson...

The best thing we can do is go on with our daily routine. The meeting was adjourned and the vote was closed, and Netflix is pre-empting the last game of the World Series to bring a Nurse Ratched series to TV.

American Horror Story’s Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson will reunite for a new prequel show focusing on the origins of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’s top psychiatric administrator.

Paulson will play a younger version of the emotionally-distant Salem State Hospital nurse, who was introduced in Ken Kesey's 1962 novel. In the original film, Nurse Ratched was played by Louise Fletcher, who won an Academy Award for Best Actress for it. Fletcher had only acted once in the 13 years before she was cast. »

Otd: The Whisperers, Marlee Matlin, and "The Power of Love"

24 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day (August 24th) in showbiz-related history...

1890 "Father of modern surfing" and part time movie actor Duke Kahanamoku born in Hawaii. We've written about him before. Where's his biopic?

1967 The Whisperers premieres in London. It's about an old poor woman living in solitude who is beginning to lose her grip on reality. Dame Edith Evans sterling work was instantly lauded - she won Best Actress at Berlinale and from such disparate groups as the Nyfcc, Nbr and the Golden Globes. She landed her third and final Oscar nomination in the Best Actress lineup (sadly only the winner, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner's Hepburn, was less than superb in that shortlist!). At the time Evans was the oldest Oscar nominee of all time in any acting category having just turned 80 years old. That record has since been undone but she's still the third oldest lead actress nominee after Jessica Tandy »

The Sound trailer, starring Rose McGowan & Christopher Lloyd

21 August 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Aug 22, 2017

The Sound trailer shows the unusual team-up of Rose McGowan and Christopher Lloyd as paranormal investigators.

While The Conjuring films may have rejuvenated the box office viability of the paranormal horror genre, a smaller scale movie, called The Sound, comes to the table with something unique: Rose McGowan and Christopher Llloyd teaming up to battle a malevolent spirit. 

Video of The Sound Official Trailer

The Sound trailer centres on McGowan’s Kelly Johansen, a passionate skeptic of the paranormal who, armed with an expertise in acoustics, utilises soundwaves as the primary tool of reports that she posts online. However, the debunking activities lead her to a case in an abandoned subway – built on a graveyard – in which a purportedly hoaxed suicide occurred 40 years earlier.

Ironically, the case not only uncovers paranormal proof, but makes Kelly the target of a malevolent spirit, forcing her to see disturbing imagery and memories. »

A Skeptic is Forced to Face a Haunted Reality in this Second Trailer for The Sound

21 August 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

The first trailer for The Sound was released earlier this year. Now, the film has a theatrical release, through Samuel Goldwyn Films. The Sound will show in select theatres, in late September. The film stars: Rose McGowan, Christopher Lloyd and Michael Eklund. In the film, a researcher and skeptic investigates an old underground tunnel, which is believed to be haunted. She finds something worse than she could have ever imagined deep below the city streets. As well, a new, updated trailer is available for the film. Several productions stills are also hosted here. The latest material shows Kelly (McGowan) alone in the big city. Once in an abandoned station, she runs into a custodian (Lloyd). She uses acoustics to localize strange sounds. Then, a supernatural entity finds her, while Kelly unearths the tunnel's dark history. The stills show more of the film's characters. Actor Michael Eklund is shown as Detective Richards. »

The Best Movie Trilogies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey

14 August 2017 11:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Trip to Spain,” what is the best movie trilogy?

Richard Brody (@tnyfrontrow), The New Yorker

Far be it from me to choose between Antonioni’s non-trilogy “L’Avventura,” “La Notte,” and “L’Eclisse” and Kiarostami’s explicitly-denied “Koker” trilogy of “Where Is the Friend’s Home?,” “Life and Nothing More,” and “Through the Olive Trees” (and I’m tempted to make a trilogy of trilogies with Carl Theodor Dreyer’s “Day of Wrath,” “Ordet,” and “Gertrud”), but if I put Kiarostami’s films first, it’s because he puts their very creation into the action. Reflexivity isn’t a »
