At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. With the release of Gone Girl this week, let’s examine the trademark style and calling signs of David Fincher as director.
Fincher’s love for film started at an early age, when, like Steven Spielberg, he made home movies with an 8mm camera. He was able to translate this love for film into a career. In the 1980’s he worked for several production companies, including Industrial Light and Magic. Later he joined Propaganda Films and began to direct music videos and commercials. Propaganda Films was also a starting point for directors such as Michael Bay, Spike Jonze, Gore Verbinski, Alex Proyas, and Zach Snyder. All of these directors, understandably, have a focus on visuals, and David Fincher is no exception.
His feature debut was Alien 3 »

The worst product placement of all time. We all undoubtedly know which movie it is, but for those who haven't seen it, Transformers: Age Of Extinction easily takes the cake. As if the films weren't just a longer than necessary ad for toys to begin with, the latest iteration of Michael Bay's shoot 'em up series featuring robots you don't care for and humans even less so makes an embarrassment out of itself with the lengths it'll go to in order to »

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Blu-ray It.s difficult to think really far outside the box for the fourth film in a popular franchise. With Michael Bay.s latest big blockbuster movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction, comes a new cast, new robots and a plotline that incorporates dinosaurs. It.s an explosion of movement and metal that looks great on Blu-ray. Unfortunately, it.s also a 2 hour and 45 minute endeavor that drags on, even with masterful special effects and a fresh new cast fronting the film. The length plays a huge part in Transformers: Age of Extincton.s problems. Long after we are introduced to bankrupt inventor Cade (Mark Wahlberg), his employee, Lucas (T.J. Miller), his daughter, Tessa (Nicola Peltz) and her fast-driving boyfriend Shane (Jack Reynor), we still have hours of explosive car chase sequences, as well as fights in the air and on the ground in the Us »

The Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie grossed $187M at the domestic box office and an additional $154M at the foreign box office. The film's success has feuled an explosion in sales of pet turtles. The CBC is reporting, sales of pet turtles has risen 20% sinceTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released in theaters this past August. Steve Mark, who worked with the province's parks department told CBC, "Kids, with their imagination, are thinking if they got four of them maybe they'll turn into the ninja turtles." Mark saw the same boost in demand during the 1990's when the first the first film adaptation was released. On the downside, this rise in demand has led to a spike in illegal smuggling of the creatures. Mark believe 9 out of 10 turtles found in pet stores were acquired illegally. How lucrative can it be for smugglers? Mark said, "One example of a »
As Transformers: Age Of Extinction brings its huge 2014 run to a close with its Home Video release, it's time to start looking a little closer at what went into the film's production. It's this sort of thirst for behind the scenes content that fuels studios in their selection of what materials to include on the physical release of a blockbuster film such as this, and from what we've heard about Transformers: Age Of Extinction, the latest in Michael Bay's Transformers series is no slouch. Collider has gotten a look at some exclusive concept art that is part of the Transformers: Age Of Extinction special features, showcasing everything from the film's climatic Dinobot battle to Galvatron himself! What's most interesting about these concepts is how different some of them are from what was actually in the film itself. For instance, take a look at the design of the Knight Ship »
Like it or not, video game adaptations are seemingly back in vogue for Hollywood. Over the next few years, we can expect filmic translations of major pixelated properties such as Splinter Cell, Assassin’s Creed and, in all likelihood, about five more Resident Evil films. But one of the new kids on the block so to speak is Legendary’s Dead Rising movie, which just yesterday unveiled its full cast.
Including the likes of Meghan Ory, Dennis Haybert and Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe, the feature-length film is set to shuffle its reanimated corpse in front of the cameras today, with filming set to begin in Vancouver. Dead Rising is also the first Legendary project to be produced exclusively for a digital platform. And Zack Lipovsky, the director behind the lens, recently sat down with /Film to discuss the early ideas that are currently being sketched up on the proverbial drawing board. »

Chef One of the best films of 2014 so far and a movie that, while I wish you had seen it in theaters (that is if you didn't), will play perfectly at home. I really hope all of you get a chance to check out Jon Favreau's Chef, not because it's Amazing, but because it's just a good, sweet, funny film. Here's my review if you're interested.
Transformers: Age of Extinction Now if you haven't seen Transformers: Age of Extinction, woe be to those of you that watch it for the first time at home. This is a film meant to be seen on a giant screen as it pummels you into submission. At home I just don't see the point. Here's my theatrical review and then an article I wrote examining Michael Bay and the movie if you're interested.

We’re all used to movies that feel too long. The summer blockbuster season is dominated by them; ninety minute B-Movies inflated to extents that would make Gone With The Wind look snappy.
Knowing when to end is very important for a film. The final moments will shape how people regard a movie – a cracking last couple of minutes can make up for no small number of earlier faults – yet so many movies appear to put their ending below catering on their list of priorities.
It can go both ways. Some films you kinda wish had a bit more explanation. They may be utterly abysmal experiences that drag out to obscene lengths, but every one of Michael Bay’s Transformers movies ends so abruptly it comes as a genuine shock. It’s not a case of being left wanting, but a general lack of narrative cohesion.

Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public. – H.L. Mencken
Every film has mistakes in it. There’s a section for each film called “Goofs” on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb.com) web site, which lists the flaws for all to see. Sometimes the mistakes are technical, sometimes they involve continuity, and sometimes they involve dialogue. But there’s one set of mistakes that in retrospect, seem totally baffling: geographical.
American script writers, directors and producers are banking on the fact that most Americans are illiterate when it comes to geography. They aren’t likely to know or even care that a car can’t be driven over a thousand miles in a scene change. They’re at the theater for entertainment, not a geography lesson. Besides, if they need to go somewhere, their Gps will tell them how to do it.
But when that film goes overseas, »

Sarah looks back at the Amityville films, and finds a lot of scary things, not all of which were intentional…
112 Ocean Avenue, Long Island is probably the most famous haunted house in the world. Not that you’ll necessarily recognise the address – it’s far better known as the Amityville Horror house. Back in 1975, George and Kathy Lutz moved their family into the house… and then 28 days later, they moved back out, claiming to have been driven out by supernatural forces. Their story made the news, was turned into a book, and then made into a movie, in 1979.
It’s hard to imagine now that a family claiming to have encountered the devil in their basement could cause such a massive fuss, but I’m not here to interrogate the truth of their statement. What I am here to do, though, is to watch all of the Amityville Horror movies made to date, »

One of my favorite parts of any filmmaking process, especially on big giant science-fiction or fantasy films, is the design process when illustrators work to figure out the visual signature of a film. As Paramount gears up to release "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow, they sent over a fistful of the artwork that was created to help pin down the look of the movie. Sure, it's a sequel, but there were so many things that had to be redesigned and so many new characters that had to be introduced that they had as much work to do here as they would have on any original film. You'll see a lot of environmental stuff in these images as they worked to find the look of the Knight Ship and some of the inhabitants of that ship, and you'll see studies on several of the new Transformers.
