Ten Best: Movie Trilogies

30 December 2013 8:40 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

With the release of The Dark Knight Rises and the completion of the Dark Knight Trilogy it had me thinking of where it falls when compared to other classic trilogies. Trilogies used to be reserved for a select few, but now everything has a trilogy. I mean Step Up had a trilogy…until they made another movie and now it’s a quadrilogy. To be fair there is a lot of plot in that series so four movies were absolutely necessary. In fact I’m quite surprised Step Up Revolutions wasn’t split up into two parts. That’s not to say that there aren’t any great ones out there, because there are quite a few and I hope to point out some of those today. I created a list of what I think are the best trilogies ever made. I considered a few things when making this list. »

10 Actors Who Achieved Cult Villainy On The Strength Of One Movie

22 December 2013 3:56 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

When you’re on a role you’re on a role! Once again here is a list of ten actors who achieved cult movie villainy on the strength of one movie. Some of the actors faded into obscurity while others continued their careers without scaling the heights of their defining cinematic performance. Perhaps I should do a one for heroes! Nah! Villains are much more fun!

[Spoilers follow]

Rudolph Klein-Rogge (Metropolis – 1927)

Although dated, Fritz Lang’s utopian masterpiece still has the unique power to fascinate. Not only did the film make a star of Brigitte Helm, it introduced the father of all mad scientists, C A Rotwang, played with eye rolling relish by Lang’s favourite actor Rudolph Klein-Rogge. The Austrian born star specialised in villainous roles so he was a natural for playing the nutty inventor who creates the legendary female robot used to impersonate Helm’s freedom fighter. With his exaggerated mannerisms and facial expressions, »

13 December 2013 4:37 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

(In issue #27 of Cinema Retro, writer John Exshaw presents a remarkable, previously unpublished interview with iconic British actor Peter Cushing. The following companion piece was not included for reasons of space but we are very proud to run this as a web site exclusive.)

John Exshaw reports:

Prior to interviewing Peter Cushing, in May, 1993, I arranged to speak to Christopher Lee at the Carlton Towers Hotel in Knightsbridge, where he kindly shared the following thoughts on Cushing as actor, colleague, and friend.

“I didn’t meet him until we did the first Hammer movie. I’d seen him. Of course the thing which I’d seen which impressed me most, understandably, was 1984, which was remarkable. He was wonderful in that. . . . Live TV! [shudders]

Total dedication; and this is the answer to why Peter Cushing is an actor. Total dedication. Total! The most professional actor I have ever worked with. And I »

Has The Day Of The Doctor paved the way for a Who movie?

2 December 2013 9:50 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Mark Harrison 4 Dec 2013 - 06:55

The success of the special on the big screen could lead to a Doctor Who film. Mark weighs the pros and cons

This article contains spoilers for The Day Of The Doctor- if you haven't yet watched the 50th anniversary special, then you might wish to catch up before reading on.

Immediately following The Day Of The Doctor's record-breaking global simulcast, it was tough to imagine another weekend in history when Doctor Who fans have had it so good. The traditional Saturday broadcast slot gives you some scope for a “top ten greatest weekends to be a Doctor Who fan”, but we'll leave that sort of thing to BBC Three.

But right now, an old question should be rearing its head once again- what does the global cinematic success of the special mean for the much rumoured Doctor Who feature film? In the first »

The Mummy: watch a clip from the restored version of the Hammer Horror classic

• Top 10 horror movies

British horror specialists Hammer Films are to remake The Abominable Snowman, their own 1957 cult classic starring Peter Cushing and Forrest Tucker. The project is being produced by Ben Holden, who is currently producing Hammer's Woman in Black sequel, subtitled Angel of Death.

In the original, Cushing and Tucker play scientists who are searching for the mythical giant beasts in the Himalayas; the Yeti turn out to be intelligent beings laying low until they can reclaim their land from invading humankind.

Will Doctor Who Star Matt Smith Materialize in Star Wars?

21 November 2013 11:37 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Is a Doctor Who star travelling to the Star Wars universe? Matt Smith may be turning in his Tardis for an X-Wing, if the rumors are true.

Official casting news for Star Wars Episode 7 remains as elusive as Kaiser Soze, so we have to be content with more rumors.  Doctor Who fans will be excited if this latest rumor turns out to be true.  According to Bleeding Cool, a “Fairly well-placed source” says that soon-to-be-ex-Doctor Matt Smith has spoken with both director J.J. Abrams and franchise creator/consultant George Lucas about a part in the next installment of the Star Wars saga. Bleeding Cool has a good Star Wars track record because they were one of the first sites to break the news that Saoirse Ronan had read for Star Wars 7, before the actress herself confirmed it.

There’s no word about what part Smith may be reading for, but »

‘The Abominable Snowman’ to Ruin Ski Trips for a New Generation

21 November 2013 3:45 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

High up on the mountaintops of the Himalayas and the snow-covered recesses of our movie libraries sits The Abominable Snowman, the 1957 monster mythic starring the legendary yeti terrorizing any explorer that dared to traverse its home. Much like the titular man-beast of the mountain shadows, the fascination with the snowman has yet to die, which is why British horror label Hammer and producer Ben Holden are rebooting the film for a new generation. Hammer, which owns the rights to the original, is looking to add a modern, dark spin on the campy classic, which starred Forrest Tucker, Peter Cushing, and Maureen Connell as a team of very misguided explorers. While the expedition in the original had the intention of finding the monster of the mountain, the reboot, written by Matthew Read (Pusher) and  Jon Croker (Angel of Death), is going in a more sinister path; this time around, an illegal expedition ascends an unclimbed peak on a »
