Armchair Vacation: Five Films To Watch At Home This Weekend [July 31-August 2]

15 hours ago | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Every day, more and more films are added to the various streaming services out there, ranging from Netflix to YouTube, and are hitting the airwaves via movie-centric networks like TCM. Therefore, sifting through all of these pictures can be a tedious and often times confounding or difficult ordeal. But, that’s why we’re here. Every week, Joshua brings you five films to put at the top of your queue, add to your playlist, or grab off of VOD to make your weekend a little more eventful. Here is this week’s top five, in this week’s Armchair Vacation.

5. Hercules (Netflix)

Brett Ratner is an interesting filmmaker. Known to many as a rather deplorable hack filmmaker who has more interest in simply making money instead of anything resembling actual cinematic art, Ratner has become a punchline instead of a well respected filmmaker. And yet he gives us films like the Dwayne Johnson-starring Hercules. »

Cooties is a Killer Good Time

30 July 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

“Circle, circle. Dot, dot. Now you have a cootie shot!” This make-believe vaccination is common practice on playgrounds across the nation to guard youngsters from the imaginary pathogen, but what happens when a strain of real-life cooties turns the innocent students of Ft. Chicken Elementary into flesh-craving, rage zombies? Enter Leigh Whannell and Ian Brennan’s hilarious horror comedy about a group of misfit teachers that must team up to survive the worst case of food poisoning their school has ever seen.

Elijah Wood (Lord Of The Rings, Maniac) plays Clint, a writer/teacher who has returned home to Ft. Chicken to complete his novel and work as a summer substitute at the local elementary school. After introductions with Vice Principal Simms (Ian Brennan), Clint meets the rest of his co-workers in a series of awkward encounters confined within the Teacher’s Lounge. There’s Rebekkah (Nasim Pedrad), who immediately »

30 July 2015 9:51 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Seeking guidance and support from a mentor who you have long admired is often a beneficial and critical way for many people to achieve their goals and success in their lives. But when their advice, personality and behavior unexpectedly fails to live up to your expectations, the work they accomplished that you have long admired unfortunately begins to lose its appeal and acclaim. That emotional struggle of contending with losing respect for your hero, particularly when they have heavily influenced your career and beliefs, is grippingly chronicled in the biographical drama, ‘Set Fire to the Stars.’ The film, which is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, and was helmed by  [ Read More ]

Fantasia Review: 'Cooties' Starring Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Leigh Whannell, Jack McBrayer, And More

18 July 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Science and the development of vaccines have helped eradicate many childhood diseases, but one continues to be passed down from generation to generation with no known medical cure: cooties. While temporary relief can come from a shot accompanied by the phrase, "Circle, circle, dot, dot, now you've got the cootie shot," future flareups are always possible, though at least it's a contagion that one eventually grows out of contracting. I'm obviously being a bit playful here, but one does have to give screenwriters Ian Brennan ("Glee," "Scream Queens") and Leigh Whannell ("Saw," "Insidious") some due for the inspiration of using cooties as a launchpad for a horror/comedy. However, it's a shame that so much potential doesn't have much in the way of follow-through.  Elijah Wood leads "Cooties" as Clint, an aspiring writer struggling with the first draft of his novel, who lives at home, and turns to teaching to make a few. »

The movie was written by Ian Brennan and Leigh Whannell, the scribes behind Glee and Insidious: Chapter 3 respectively.

Last Witch Hunter star Elijah Wood shares witches' secret

12 July 2015 10:39 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Elijah Wood isn't just a star of The Last Witch Hunter.  He apparently knows one of witches' most intimate secrets.

"I'm actually a real fan of witches," Wood said in an interview at Comic-Con, adding that he'd like to see more of them on the big screen.

"There's another witch movie coming out in around October or November called The Witch.  It's also very good," he said. "So we might see this as a cycle, which I would be fine with because I just feel like no one is exploring witches. They're terrifying."

The 34-year-old actor also knows a bit of their lore: He said the origin of witches flying on broomsticks came from a real pastime.

"There was a salve that they used to put on brooms that would make them high. And they would sit on the broomstick, which would then go into their bloodstream, if you know what I mean, »

The Fast and the Furious actor Vin Diesel is front and center on a pair of new posters for Lionsgate’s The Last Witch Hunter. In the film, Diesel fittingly plays an immortal witch hunter named Kaulder, which is his first starring role outside of the Fast franchise since 2013’s Riddick (excluding Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy).

One poster shows the modern day version of Kaulder in the film, while the other shows an older version of the character…

New York City hides many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us. Condemned to a life of immortality, the last witch hunter, Kaulder (Vin Diesel), is all that stands between humanity and a new reign by the most horrifying and powerful witches in history, including the Queen Witch who will stop at nothing to reclaim her throne.

Lionsgate is betting big on Vin Diesel to launch a new franchise this fall in The Last Witch Hunter, which finds the Fast and Furious actor taking on the role of an immortal warrior bent on the destruction of witches who would otherwise destroy the world.

Vin Diesel is Medieval and Modern in New 'Last Witch Hunter' Comic Con Posters

9 July 2015 9:59 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

To say I'm expecting nothing when it comes to The Last Witch Hunter is an understatement of epic proportions. In fact, I'm expecting so little any time I receive something new concerning the film it serves as a reminder it even exists, let alone the fact it's hitting theaters in just over three months. That said, today we have two new posters for the upcoming Vin Diesel feature in which he plays some sort of immortal witch hunter who was cursed with immortality by some uber-witch he killed way back when. Go figure she's ultimately resurrected Seventh Son style and he must kill her all over again, only this time in modern times. Oh man! Directed by Breck Eisner, who did make the excellent and overlooked The Crazies back in 2010, the film co-stars Michael Caine, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Elijah Wood, Lotte Verbeek and Rose Leslie. The Last Witch Hunter releases in theaters on Oct. »
