We Are The Best!'s Lukas Moodysson is cinema's eternal teenager

11 April 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Swedish director's new film about a teen girl punk band is a coming-of-age masterpiece, but he's keen to remain an outsider

If you happen to be a teenage girl looking to modern cinema for a role model, you're left with two options: live your life by the meaningless platitudes of vest-clad, stern-faced warrior types from a bleak dystopian future (The Hunger Games, Divergent), or dedicate your existence to grabbing money, fellating Uzis and drowning your brain cells with James Franco (Spring Breakers, The Bling Ring). Both of which sound exhausting and neither of which are going to help you get a B+ in German. However, 44-year-old cult Swedish director Lukas Moodysson is about to buck that trend. His new film, We Are The Best!, is a coming-of-age masterpiece which recalls the perceptive comedy of Shane Meadows's A Room For Romeo Brass and Rob Reiner's stirring representation of friendship in Stand By Me. »

Watch: Revisit a Stephen King Classic in 'Walking the Tracks: The Summer of Stand by Me'

7 April 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

There are no shortage of “quintessential” summer movies, but one of our personal favorites has long been Rob Reiner’s Stand by Me. The tale, adapted from a Stephen King novella, is the sort of timeless coming-of-age adventure story that we can all relate to (even if we never set out to see a dead body). It’s arguably one of the best adaptations of King’s work, thanks in no small part to Reiner’s direction and the excellent performances from cast members Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O’Connell. Walking the Tracks: The Summer of Stand by Me is a nearly hour-long retrospective on the film from back in 2002. The cast and crew reunite to discuss the making of the movie and its legacy, while also paying tribute to fallen...

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Jordan Belfort in this true-story adaptation, a fraudulent stock broker who made millions upon millions of dollars by selling phony stocks to unsuspecting clients. Among a stellar supporting cast including Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner, Jean Dujardin and Margot Robbie, is P.J. Byrne, who plays Nicky "Rugrat" Koskoff in this towering tale about greed, corruption and American excess. I recently had the chance to speak with P.J.

The Wolf of Wall Street - Paramount - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Martin Scorsese Cast: Leonardo DiCaprioJonah HillMatthew McConaugheyKyle ChandlerRob Reiner. Full cast + crew The Wolf of Wall Street is a staggering film. It's like a real-life magic trick. Even when you know all of the components behind it, you wonder how it actually exists. To that effect, it mirrors the real story that inspired it all: how one man saw a gap in the system and figured out how to leverage it every which way he could until he'd artificially inflated not only his own wealth, but the wealth of all his friends and family. For as funny, sexy and just plain wild as The Wolf of Wall Street is, it's also a terrifying look at how an ordinary...

'Spinal Tap' Cast: Where Are They Now? (Photos)

1 March 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When "This Is Spinal Tap" opened on March 2, 1984, it made a modest $4.7 million, but the cast and crew behind this "rockumentary" likely had no idea what an oft-quoted, cultural touchstone it would become. ("This one goes to 11.")

At the time, maybe the send-up of big-hair heavy metal bands was too close to reality, and many moviegoers thought Spinal Tap was a real band. Actually, the film did have a soundtrack (with such classics as "Sex Farm Woman") since the comic geniuses of Spinal Tap wrote and performed their own songs. They even took the group on the road in 2009 for the film's 25th anniversary and even opened up for themselves as their other musical persona, The Folksmen from Spinal Tap's folk sequel of sorts, "A Mighty Wind."

Mindy Newell: Who’s The Real You When You’re Writing?

24 February 2014 5:01 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

“Whenever there is a decline of righteousness and rise of unrighteousness then I send forth Myself.”

—Lord Krishna to Prince Arjuna,The Bhagavadgita (Song of God)

Sanskrit in origin, and a central principle of the Hindu religion, an avatar is defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “the incarnation of a deity in human or animal form to counteract an evil in the world.  A central principle of Hinduism, it usually refers to 10 appearances of Vishnu, including an incarnation as the Buddha Gautama and the Buddha yet to come, called Kalkin.”

In the 21st century, it has also come to mean that little picture that represents the user, blogger, columnist, commentator, gamer, or fan on the Internet, and (usually) will tell you something about that person, whether it is whom that user, blogger, columnist, commentator, gamer, or fan admires or identifies with, or even their sense of humor about themselves.  (See »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2009

19 February 2014 5:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 20 Feb 2014 - 05:40

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...

The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.

Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

25. A Perfect Getaway
