9 Wes Craven Movies You Must See

31 August 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday was a tragic day for horror fans around the world, as we reported the unfortunate news of Wes Craven passing at the age of 76 in his Los Angeles home. Wes Craven left an indelible mark on the horror movie genre almost immediately with his first feature film, 1972's The Last House on the Left, and his influence will be felt for years to come, in the filmmakers that follow and carry on his legacy. As we continue to mourn the loss of this legend, we're revisiting his best work with nine of his best films.

Wesley Earl Craven was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to Caroline (Miller) and Paul Eugene Craven, raised by a strict baptist family, although his father died when he was just five years old. He earned his undergraduate degree in English and Psychology from Wheaton University in Illinois, and earned his Masters in Philosophy and Writing from Johns Hopkins University. »

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer Discuss ‘Cléo from 5 to 7’

30 August 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their eighth piece, they discuss Agnès Varda’s stunning and essential character study Cléo from 5 to 7 (1962).

Drew’S Take

This month brings the Criterion/Eclipse release of the five film box set “Agnès Varda in California,” making August the perfect time to revisit her seminal 1962 film Cléo from 5 to 7. The close to real-time film covers 90 minutes (the title is a slight fib) in the life of a beautiful French pop singer (Corinne Marchand). She has two hours to wait until her Doctor contacts her to confirm if she has cancer and what her prognosis is. In the first scene of the film, Cléo visits a fortune teller whose tarot cards reveal that she will experience a transformative experience that may involve her death. She »

TV Is Not the New Film, But It’s Ok That Festivals Are Blurring the Lines

26 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Looks like Toronto is the latest film festival to add a television section to its lineup. These days, everywhere from Sundance to SXSW to the Canadian “festival of festivals,” smallscreen content is getting a big push, which is intriguing — and even ironic — for all sorts of reasons (ironic because the state of distribution being what it is, many of the films in Toronto will end up trickling down to VOD, rather than ever getting a commercial theatrical run). On one hand, the trend isn’t exactly new: Classy longform features like “Carlos” (which premiered at Cannes in 2010), “Top of the Lake” (Sundance 2013) and “Olive Kitteridge” (Venice 2014) made their bows at top-tier film fests before going on to air as miniseries on Canal Plus, BBC Two and HBO, respectively.

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1986

26 August 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...

A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.

As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »

Big Boss Has His Revenge In Gamescom Trailer For Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain; PC Requirements Detailed

5 August 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The fallout between Konami and esteemed developer and Metal Gear grandfather Hideo Kojima has long overshadowed the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – did Kojima hint of his departure in Ground Zeroes? What happens to the series from this point forth? – but in many ways the imminent departure has generated more interest in The Phantom Pain.

Bringing an end to an era that few video game franchises can hold a candle to, Kojima’s final entry into the series looks to maintain Metal Gear‘s penchant for idiosyncratic supervillains, with new looks at Skull Face and a supernatural man wielding a mask – perhaps a cue to Psycho Mantis from Shadow Moses?

There’s also more teases of the character’s motivations, with Kiefer Sutherland’s Big Boss on a quest for revenge, aided by his partner-in-war-crime Kazuhira Miller following their work together on the Militaires Sans Frontières and Diamond Dogs operations. »

'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

28 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »
