The 25 most iconic movie entrances

16 April 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robert Keeling Apr 25, 2017

Saluting the movie characters who make an impression, the minute they appear on the screen...

One thing that unites all of cinema’s most iconic characters is that they were able to make a memorable first impression. Whether it’s bursting onto the scene in a flurry of noise or slowly skulking their way into shot, there’s a fine art to ensuring a character makes an instant impact on screen. An iconic entrance is not just about a momentary impact however, it can also emphasise a character’s importance and help to cement their influence over the rest of the movie.

There are any number of contributory factors that can be blended together in order to make an entrance truly memorable. These include the accompanying music, the choice of camera shot, the »

Anthony Burgess and Malcolm McDowell Analyze A Clockwork Orange in 1972

6 April 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

To this day it’s hard to imagine and accept the fact that A Clockwork Orange was released in 1971.  Doesn’t that just seem so unbelievably distant?  I mean the Beatles were still together in 1971.  Think about that.  In the same year the Beatles were still making music A Clockwork Orange came out?  It just doesn’t make sense. When Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s novel A Clockwork Orange was released in December, 1971, it generated controversy, as well as acclaim. Though the film received a rating of “X” in the Us, meaning no one under the age of 17

Practical-ly Perfect: Celebrating Pennywise and the Stephen King’S It Miniseries

5 April 2017 4:34 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For this month’s Practical-ly Perfect column, I thought it was the perfect time to take a moment and pay tribute to Bart Mixon’s contributions to the 1990 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s It, which was directed by Tommy Lee Wallace (you can read my interview with him Here). When it debuted on ABC in November of 1990, it became a landmark moment for television, and a big part of that was the now-iconic villain Pennywise, portrayed by the legendary Tim Curry.

As we all get ready for Andy Muschietti’s new take on King’s classic novel, it’s only fitting that we celebrate Mixon’s bold and ambitious take on horror’s most infamous killer clown in the original It adaptation. Mixon discussed his approach to designing Pennywise, his experiences collaborating with Curry (who was one of three top choices Wallace had in mind to play the unforgettably »

DVD Review – Death Race 2050 (2017)

23 March 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Death Race 2050, 2017

Written and Directed by G.J. Echtemkamp.

Starring Manu Bennett, Malcom McDowell, Marci Miller, Burt Grinstead and Folake Olowofoyeku.

Synopsis:

America is now a corporation where states have melded into one, entertainment is beamed through headsets into the minds of docile masses and anarchy reigns supreme. A chosen few are held up as heroes warped, twisted and manipulated into an image which suits The Chairman and The Death Race. Careening across different zones in wildly supped up cars, these men, women and artificial lifeforms mow down pensioners, children, immigrants and the infirm without impunity for points towards an ultimate goal.

This sequel to the 1975 Paul Bartel cult classic is big on kitsch, low on production values and revels in camp with a tongue firmly planted in its cheek. Employing back projection during a majority of in car conversations, outlandishly fake scenery and acting which redefines caricature, Death Race 2050 »

Time After Time Series Premiere: Time is No Barrier When Chasing a Killer

6 March 2017 6:33 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Series premieres are incredibly tricky balancing acts between good world-building and engaging action.

On Time After Time Season 1 Episode 1 and Time After Time Season 1 Episode 2, we are thrown immediately into the world of Victorian England with its dark and dangerous alleyways alongside genteel

This is perfectly illustrated by the opening scene, depicting one of Jack the Ripper's brutal murders, followed by drinks at the home of H.G. Wells where the killer strolls in, totally accepted as just one of the guys.

The show's central characters – H.G. Wells as portrayed by Freddie Stroma and Josh Bowman's Dr. John Stevenson aka "Jack the Ripper" – are perfectly displayed in contrast to each other when H.G. reveals his time machine.

While the rest of his guests tease him about having too much time on his hands, Stevenson immediately jumps into the seat and wants to take it for a spin.

‘Time After Time’ Review: A Super-Hot Jack the Ripper Evokes Peculiar Questions in Sporadically Fun Time Travel Drama

3 March 2017 9:14 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Should Jack the Ripper be super-hot?

The legendary serial killer has proven a fascinating historical figure for over a century, but that’s largely due to the way his crimes remain shadowed in anonymity, not because of his well-defined torso. And yet as depicted by Josh Bowman in the new series “Time After Time,” Jack the Ripper’s handsomeness and charm overshadow his murderous tendencies. He even addresses said hotness directly during the first episode, saying to his one-time friend H.G. Wells, “I know, I look absolutely dashing.”

That’s right: He’s sexy and he knows it.

It’s weird to see such unambiguous objectification of a serial killer on screen. In fact, this might be the weirdest aspect of the time travel drama, premiering this Sunday on ABC. A reimagining, if you will, of the 1979 film written and directed by Nicholas Meyer, “Time After Time’s” first two episodes serve largely as set-up. »

How 'Logan' Director James Mangold Made the Most Violent Wolverine Movie Yet

2 March 2017 9:13 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Even the most "serious" and "grounded" superhero movies ultimately offer a warm bath of escapism – but not the fatalistic new twilight-of-Wolverine movie Logan, which feels more like having three metal claws puncture your cranium. This film is many things: the most daring mainstream superhero movie ever; a sharp dystopian vision of a post-Trump future America; a showcase for many, many decapitations and impalements, some of them perpetrated by an 11-year-old girl with a metal skeleton; everything Zack Snyder's Watchmen could have been, had it not been directed by Zack Snyder. »

Feature: Taboo-Busting Horror

17 February 2017 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

What are “Taboo Busters”? These are the films that dared go where no-one had gone before… Joining the ranks of great cinematic taboo busters is We Are the Flesh – the debut film from director Emiliano Rocha Minter – an extraordinary and unsettling film experience about a young brother and sister roaming an apocalyptic city, who take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit, who takes them on a sexually-charged, nightmarish journey into an other-worldy dimension.

The film, out now from Arrow Video, is certainly not for the prudish or faint-hearted, featuring explicit sex and grotesque set pieces, building to a finale of demonically depraved proportions, making We Are the Flesh extreme art cinema at its boldest and most taboo-bustingly bizarre. Here are six more films, also released by Arrow Video, that pushed the boundaries of cinema as never before.

70s Rewind: Royal Flash, Richard Lester's Comic 19th Century Adventure

17 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Recently I watched Richard Lester's Royal Flash (1975), starring Malcolm McDowell, for the first time. Adapted by author George MacDonald Fraser from his own novel, it's a broad and sprightly comic adventure that I thoroughly enjoyed. To be frank, I only purchased Twilight Time's Blu-ray, available since 2013, because it was on sale. I had no memory of the film's U.S. theatrical release in the fall of 1975 and didn't recall any raves about it, either. Also, I've never read any of the acclaimed books by Fraser, a popular series that placed the disreputable Harry Flashman in the center of meticulously researched historical adventures. But I saw and thoroughly enjoyed The Three Musketeers and The Four Musketeers, first during their theatrical releases and then again...
