The top 25 greatest Jason Statham films

14 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

How do you rank perfection? Duncan has a go, as he lists the top 25 Jason Statham films...

For regular Den Of Geek readers, it will come as little surprise to see this list come round. We've chosen our favourite Statham films before, but such is the productivity of the great man, it was decided that a mere top ten was no longer large enough to contain his ever growing body of work. Last time I mentioned updating this piece to the man himself back in 2012 due to his insane workload, he cracked up and responded, “My productivity is overwhelming! 'Have a fucking day off!'”

Since this list has now expanded to encompass 25 of his movies, it seemed only right to include multiple sequels, with his big trio of action franchises all spawning some thoroughly entertaining fare worthy of mention, though I’ve tried to exclude the personal bias that »

Susan Sarandon Reveals Affair with David Bowie: 'That Was a Really Interesting Period'

26 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Costarring in 1983's horror movie The Hunger left Susan Sarandon and David Bowie hungry ... for each other. In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the actress reveals she had a "pretty interesting" love affair with the musician after they met on the set of the film. "He's worth idolizing. He's extraordinary. That was a really interesting period," Sarandon, 67, says. The oldest of nine kids, Sarandon spent her younger years raising her siblings and wasn't looking to settle down or start a family of her own. "That definitely changes the gene pool you're dipping into," she says. The romantic rendezvous »

“Hey, Glad You Won But…”: Top 10 Nominees Deprived of Oscar Gold in Favor of Another Contender

19 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The knock on the Academy Awards throughout the years always seem to be how certain actors, directors and films are snubbed in favor of other chosen nominations. Sometimes the justification for these overlooked selections in performances and motion pictures are warranted. Many will agree that a lot of injustices have been committed based on how some Oscar-worthy selections were slighted.

Has anyone ever considered the equal possibilities of omission when one Oscar nominee wins the  golden statuette over another nominee that one thought was more deserving for the victory? There have been numerous instances when observers who have witnessed an Oscar win thought that their competitor should have received it instead. It is only human nature to have an opinion as to feel who should have claimed Oscar gold as opposed to the fellow nominee that actually accomplished the goal.

Let us look at the top ten instances where it »

The Five Best Bets for Movie Buffs at Motor City Comic Con

15 May 2014 10:14 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Novi, Michigan – Gone are the days when comic conventions were solely places for fans to search through long boxes for that one issue that completes their collection. Pop culture and movies have long since taken over these events to create massive celebrations of all things geek.

Now in its twenty-fifth year, Motor City Comic Con 2014 will be taking place on May 16th-18th at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. There are plenty of TV favorites, comic artists, and professional wrestlers to see while you’re there, but since we care more about movies here at CinemaNerdz, I give you the five best bets for movie enthusiasts at this year’s con.

Postman Pat: The Movie review

12 May 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The much beloved Postman Pat finally makes his way to the big screen. But is it worth the wait?

It's better than the trailer, let's start there. After all, the big screen debut of Postman Pat suffered from an early promo that suggested the film was not one to look forward to. As it turns out, there are merits to the Postman Pat movie, which at times feels as much like the beneficiary of a Doctor Who script conference as a stint watching children's telly. But ultimately, for all the nods to other movies (Faster Pussycat Kill Kill being the most bizarre), and for all the ideas, Pat falls just a little flat when it matters.

It starts promisingly enough. We meet Pat, now voiced by Stephen Mangan, as he goes about his work in Greendale, courtesy of a really good, extended opening shot. All the regulars are there, with the gentle, »

Trailer Trashin’: The Big G is Finally Unleashed in Godzilla

11 May 2014 7:07 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s May now, and with the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last weekend, we are clearly in summer movie season proper. And in that spirit, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ takes another look at my most anticipated movie of the summer – Godzilla.

Premise: The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

My take: As I’ve said multiple times in this columns, I am ridiculously excited for Godzilla. And with the release only a week away, my anticipation is at a fever pitch. Recently, a new Asian trailer, which is in English with what I believe are Mandarin Chinese subtitles, was released. This is probably the last trailer we’ll get before the movie’s release next week, and it really underscores why I’m so excited for the film. (Warning: Potential Spoilers Ahead!)

In terms of the human cast, »

The Princess Bride Midnights at The Tivoli This Weekend

5 May 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!”

Why is this such a classic line in the minds of many? I don’t know, really. But I do know that the way that Mandy Patinkin delivers it in this film has ‘classic line’ written all over it!

Believe it or don’t, but I just saw The Princess Bride for the first time earlier this year at a Tenacious Eats ‘Movies for Foodies’ event. I’d heard great things about it for decades so I’m not sure why I’ve spent so many years avoiding it. Perhaps because I was 25 when it was made in 1987 and really, what self-respecting dude would watch a movie called The Princess Bride with his buddies (I must not have had a girlfriend at the time)?

One of the best qualities of The Princess Bride is that it simultaneously »

How to Play... a vampire: Only Lovers Left Alive, Twilight, Dracula

19 February 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When it comes to movie monsters, there is no comparison. Dinner with a zombie would inevitably get messy. Frankenstein's Monster is a lousy conversationalist. Werewolves are boring three weeks out of every four.

But vampires? Now you're talking. Vampires are suave, stylish and sexy. Even when they turn on you, you get the benefit of eternal youth and an excuse to stay up all night, every night.

With Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston now playing hipster bloodsuckers in Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, we look back at previous screen vampires to discover what makes them so cool.

Prosthetics

The simplest way to become a vampire is to don fake teeth and fangs very much, I vant to suck your blood. Yet Max Schreck went much further, perfecting a chillingly inhuman look as Nosferatu with a bald head, rat's ears and long nails.

The reclusive Schreck kept his acting »

The Top 12 Most Unconvincing Horror Couples

12 February 2014 10:41 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

A few years ago I wrote a piece on my blog Day of the Woman about unrealistic horror couples, this isn’t to be confused with “worst horror couples” or like what Ryan Turek over at Shock Till You Drop posted, “Doomed Horror Romances.”  Instead, I wanted to focus on couples in horror movies that really have no business being together.  Some of these couples I’m judging from the shallow perspective of appearances, but some of these couples just don’t seem compatible.  Now that I’m a little older and a little more in tune to what actually makes for a good relationship, I’ve re-vamped and revitalized this list just in time for everyone’s favorite holiday developed by the greeting card industry. Note: If you and your significant other resemble any of the couples we make fun of, we’re not making fun of you…we »

I, Frankenstein

4 February 2014 10:12 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

In the long history of horror fiction, few characters are as iconic and well-known as the Frankenstein monster. Mary Shelley’s creation has appeared hundreds of times across different media, and his name and image are instantly recognizable the world over. While the most famous cinematic depiction of the creature is, of course, Boris Karloff in James Whale’s Frankenstein (1931), many other actors have played the role over the years, including Lon Chaney Jr., Bela Lugosi, Glenn Strange, Christopher Lee, David Prowse, Clancy Brown, Chris Sarandon, and Robert De Niro. Now we have I, Frankenstein, a fantasy-action film based on the graphic novel of the same name by Kevin Grevioux and starring Aaron Eckhart as the titular monster. Despite some nice visuals and a good cast, I, Frankenstein is pretty mediocre overall, and largely squanders what potential it did have.

Shortly after the death of his creator in 1795, the Frankenstein »

Top 11 Most Vicious Vampires

20 January 2014 1:48 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

They are perhaps the most versatile monster we know. The vampire. Sometimes sexy, sometimes proper, sometimes feral, sometimes classic. The vampire comes in so many different forms.

With the release of Black Water Vampire on DVD and VOD tomorrow, January 21st, we celebrate the Top 11 Most Vicious Vampires.

There are so many to choose from. Vampires have been present in movies and television forever, so picking out the most vicious is no mean feat. We've done our best to narrow it down to the Top 11 but also have our usual honorable mentions to help flesh out the list (pun definitely intended).

We'd like to recognize the infected Alpha male vampire from I Am Legend; that dude was simply badass. In any version of Salem's Lot, be it either of the television mini-series or the book, Kurt Barlow has always been Type 1 brutal. Chris Sarandon's Jerry Dandridge in Fright Night »

Leto vs. Franco? Eighth Posthumous Nod Ever? Our Predictions for the 86th Academy Awards in the Best Supporting Actor Category

7 January 2014 5:47 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Best Supporting Actor Oscar Predictions 2014 (photo: Jared Leto in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’) As explained in our previous Oscar 2014 predictions post, this year’s Academy Award nominations in the Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories initially looked impossible to predict. For Best Supporting Actor, Jared Leto was the front-runner for his performance as a transsexual with AIDS in Dallas Buyers Club, and Michael Fassbender was another strong possibility for his evil planter in 12 Years a Slave — but who else? (See also: "Oscar Predictions 2014 Best Actress: Meryl Streep Possibly to Break Another Record," "Oscar Predictions 2014 Best Actor: Robert Redford Possible Near-Record," "Best Supporting Actress 2014 Oscar Predictions: Jennifer Lawrence and/or Scarlett Johansson to Make Oscar History?" and "Oscar Predictions 2014: Best Picture, Best Director.") A couple of weeks ago, the SAG Award nominations helped to clarify things some, but, just as in the Best Supporting Actress category, there remains quite »
