9 Wes Craven Movies You Must See

2 hours ago | 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. »

‘Justice League: Gods and Monsters’ Review

1 August 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Benjamin Bratt, Michael C. Hall, Tamara Taylor, Paget Brewster, C. Thomas Howell, Jason Isaacs, Dee Bradley Baker, Eric Bauza, Larry Cedar, Richard Chamberlain, Trevor Devall, Dan Gilvezan, Grey Griffin, Daniel Hagen, Penny Johnson Jerald | Written by Alan Burnett, Bruce Timm | Directed by Sam Liu

Plot:

In an alternate reality, the Justice League is a brutal force that the World fears and distrusts. So when the Jl are framed for a series of murders, no-one is exactly jumping to their defence and it is up to Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman to figure this out for themselves and ultimately save the day.

Verdict:

Now this is more like it.

After efforts like Justice League:War, Son of Batman and Batman vs Robin. Justice League: Gods and Monsters is a real breath of fresh air and a sign that DC Animation can be as good as they used to be, which was a long while ago. »

Film Nerd 2.0 stays gold with an emotional screening of 'The Outsiders'

29 July 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Film Nerd 2.0 is an ongoing series in which we explore the ways we share media with our kids, particularly those of us who grew up deeply in love with movies. The media landscape has changed completely, and parents need to be more engaged than ever in what their kids watch and what they take from that entertainment. "Daddy, why did the Karate Kid Johnny die?" When "The Outsiders" was released in 1983, I was 13, and I already dearly loved the S.E. Hinton novel. It's melodramatic as hell, but that's how it feels to be a teenager, no matter what era you're talking about. I may not have had to deal with Socs or Greasers, but navigating the turbulent emotional landscape of adolescence was something that informed every line of Hinton's book. Francis Ford Coppola's film is burnished and beautiful, and it featured a young cast made up of actors on »

Journey to a divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet — but answers to no one but themselves.

Have Jurassic Dinosaurs Truly Kicked Marvel Superheroes Butt at Worldwide Box Office?

25 July 2015 9:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

Superman Gets Mean in First Clip for Justice League: Gods and Monsters

25 June 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The DC Universe's next animated film, Justice League: Gods and Monsters is hitting blu-ray next month, but before it hits, you can check out the first clip from the film, showing how the alternate reality team handles the world...

I'm very excited to see what Justice League: Gods and Monsters has to offer.  It's a very different take on the heroes we all know and love, and DC's animated films are almost always impressive and fun to watch.  So this little adventure should be interesting indeed, especially based on this first clip: 

Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you’ve never seen before. "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" features a Superman born of General Zod’s blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods. »

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles gets a second season

6 May 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next month sees the arrival of Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles, an online webseries based upon Bruce Timm’s upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters, and it seems that Warner Bros. and Machinima are confident that they’ve got a hit on their hands, as a second season has just been given the green light.

Here’s the official announcement (via Bleeding Cool):

“From visionary producer and animator Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series), Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles turns the DC Universe upside-down. In this dark, alternate world, telling the good guys from the bad guys is never easy: Superman is not the son of Jor-El, he’s the son of General Zod; Wonder Woman is not from peaceful Themyscira, but rather the warring nation of Ares; and Batman is more vampire-bat than man…and he’s not Bruce Wayne. »
