In this new golden age of television that we are currently living in, the television industry is poaching some of cinema’s greatest minds more than ever to create their own long form stories after being restricted to the hour and a half to maximum four hours that film allows. The gap is getting increasingly small between the two in terms of quality, and some would argue that TV has already overtaken film in some respects.
Steven Soderbergh, Guillermo del Toro, Eli Roth, Martin Scorsese, and Lars Von Trier have or are about to make the leap from the silver screen to the small screen with The Knick, The Strain, Hemlock Grove, and the upcoming Shutter Island prequel and The House That Jack Built. They’re not the first major filmmakers to create a show; both Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch famously did so with Alfred Hitchcock Presents »

From rock operas to Wes Craven to Dazzler, here's some Marvel movies that never quite made it...
Recently, we looked at the DC movies that never got the greenlight. We saw hordes of Superman movies which didn’t make it to screen, along with Batman film ideas and whole hosts of other DC heroes whose movies plummeted out of production (You can read that piece here).
On the other side of the superhero cinema fence, we have the seemingly all-encompassing, game-changing Marvel Cinematic Universe at the height of its powers, the X-Men franchise in rude health and the still-fresh memory of Spider-Man’s hasty reboot. You could be forgiven for thinking that not as many Marvel movies have struggled to get made as their DC counterparts.
However, having delved once more into the ancient scrolls of cinema history (still better known as extensive Googling), we can confirm there’s plenty »
We all love great movies that, no matter how many times we watch them, we just can’t get enough of: classic movies we absolutely have to watch anytime we see them on TV, like The Godfather, Goodfellas, The Dark Knight, E.T., Indiana Jones and so on and so forth. But what about those brilliant movies which, for a multitude of reasons, we just can’t bring ourselves to ever watch again? Maybe they’re just too messed up, maybe they’re too freaking long, maybe they’re too emotionally draining, or perhaps they’re a brutal combination of all three, but these movies all have one thing in common: every time we think about watching them again, we manage to talk ourselves out of it.
In spite of this, each of these films is brilliant in its own way, a technical marvel, a darkly provocative statement about humanity, a »

Michael Dougherty's cult classic Trick 'r Treat holds a very special place in the hearts of horror fans. As does the classic John Carpenter film Halloween and the season in which both films are set. Why not bring 'em all together?
Below you'll find a really neat poster from artist SamRaw08, who's brought the best of the aforementioned goodies together! You can buy a physical copy of said poster by clicking on the link we provided you with. It's available in three sizes, each with their own respective price tags.
The Story Of Trick 'R Treat
Although never released in theaters, Trick 'r Treat, the directorial debut of Michael Dougherty that stars Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin, Leslie Bibb, and Brian Cox, became a cult classic through its release on DVD, digital platforms, and extensive play in festivals. Additionally, the film received rave reviews for its originality and ambition. The »

An actor prepares to face the final curtain of his career in “The Humbling,” director Barry Levinson’s free-form adaptation of Philip Roth’s penultimate novel, about a star of stage and screen beginning to lose the tricks of his trade (and possibly his grasp on reality). In one of those curious quirks of timing, Levinson’s film arrives hot on the heels of another polymorphous movie about an actor in crisis, Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “Birdman,” in whose deservedly large shadow it may be doomed to dwell. But where Inarritu’s exuberant style piece calls to mind the likes of Fosse and Fellini, “The Humbling” feels closer to the intimate theater/film hybrid works of Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn (“My Dinner With Andre,” “Vanya on 42nd Street”) in its lo-fi aesthetics and gently playful sense of art imitating life imitating art. , though doing so will surely prove to be an uphill climb. »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties.

When Joe Morton ("Scandal") won the Emmy for Best Drama Guest Actor at the Creative Arts Awards on Saturday (Aug. 16), there were many dropped jaws and shouts of surprise backstage in the Emmys press room. But for all of those Emmy watchers that did their research, Morton's win shouldn't have been a shockeroo at all. So how did this industry vet pull off such an upset? -Break- Emmy Episode Analysis: Read our Pros and Cons for Dylan Baker | Beau Bridges | Reg E. Cathey Only three of Gold Derby's 14 Experts predicted Morton for the win: Joyce Eng (TV Guide) and Gold Derby's own Tom O'Neil and Paul Sheehan. These three savvy Experts knew what all of the other Emmyologists failed to realize: that when actors submit episodes to the Emmy judges featuring passionate speeches, that's usually a shoo-in to claim Emmy gold. But speeches weren't the only factors that pushed Morton over the edge. »
So…what do I mean by “What the F**k?” Movies? These are the films that, upon completing your viewing, you seriously worry about the director’s sanity. Or you can’t really comprehend what you just saw. Or you know what you watched was something magical, but can’t really put the pieces together in your mind. Or, worse, you know what happened, but certifiably it’s insane. But with this “definition” comes a few caveats: no horror films and no fully animated films. Those genres lean a little too crazy to begin with – it’s more fun to look at films that force a sense of realism, even if it’s just on the surface.

The Creative Arts Emmys take place this Saturday (Aug. 16) giving you precious little time to make or change your predictions in the race for Best Drama Guest Actor. Gold Derby polled 13 Emmy Experts and the consensus amongst our gurus is that Beau Bridges ("Masters of Sex") or Robert Morse ("Mad Men") will reign supreme on Emmy night. Do you agree with these findings? Below, we break down who each of our Experts are predicting to claim Emmy glory, and we reveal the one Expert brave enough to go his own way and cast his vote for Joe Morton ("Scandal") instead. -Break- Emmy Episode Analysis: Read our Pros and Cons for Dylan Baker | Beau Bridges | Reg E. Cathey Eight of the 13 Experts think the Emmy will go to Bridges: Robert Bianco (USA Today), Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Matthew Jacobs (HuffPo), Lynette Rice (People), Matt Roush (TV Guide), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby »
In our new prediction slugfest, Gold Derby Editors agree that Joe Morton ("Scandal"), Reg E. Cathey ("House of Cards") and Beau Bridges ("Masters of Sex") could each snag the Emmy for Best Drama Guest Actor, but we duke it out over whether or not Robert Morse ("Mad Men") can deliver a knock-out punch. Joining me in our latest video (watch below) are Charles Bright, Riley Chow and Ralph Galvan as we analyze the episodes submitted to Emmy judges as examples of their best work from the past TV season. -Break- Emmy Episode Analysis: Read our Pros and Cons for Dylan Baker | Beau Bridges | Reg E. Cathey Morton entered "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," Cathey chose "Chapter 22," Bridges opted for "Manhigh" and Morse picked "Waterloo."

Emmy voters seem to prefer Dylan Baker in even-numbered years: his current Drama Guest Actor nomination for "The Good Wife" follows bids in 2010 and 2012. He portrays Alicia Florrick’s (Julianna Margulies) creepy/loony/difficult client Colin Sweeney. -Break- Emmy experts predict drama races: 'Breaking Bad,' Matthew McConaughey ... Synopsis: In "Tying the Knot," Alicia visits Colin’s home, where a party is being thrown, so she can get his signature on important documents. While she’s there, a murder is committed and the primary suspects are Colin and his fiancée Renata Ellard (Laura Benanti); Alicia becomes the main witness. Renata is arrested on suspicion of murder, and a hearing is set where a plot hatched by Colin and Renata's attorney, Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), puts Alicia in a precarious position on the witness stand. The result is a victory for Colin, Diane, and Ren...' »
