Insurgent Snapchat Snippets Form Another Clip From The Upcoming Sequel

19 February 2015 1:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Audience members would be forgiven for thinking that Insurgent had been released already – we have certainly been hearing about it for long enough. The second instalment in the film adaptation of the Divergent book series by Veronica Roth has been previewed and trailed and, now, Snapchatted for such a long time that it perhaps feels beyond familiar. It hasn’t been released, though. If it had, clumsy soundbites such as these would surely have generated more internet memes.

For it is the internet-dwelling, meme-creating young adult crowd that the Divergent series, and therefore Insurgent, is essentially aimed at – hence, the recent Snapchatting during Pretty Little Liars. Once neatly sewn back together, however, the clip reveals dialogue so cringe-worthy and clichéd that audiences would be forgiven for thinking they had stumbled into Fifty Shades Of Grey instead. The source material is adapted for the screen by Brian Duffield (R.I.P. »

Dan’s Ten Best: Movies of 2014

11 January 2015 9:28 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The proverbial Top Ten List. A sacred tradition passed down by our cinematic elders. This is the fourth time I have partaken in this holy tradition, and one thing has remained constant is that this list is never set in stone. As we catch up with more films we missed or rewatch our favorites it causes us to like a movie more or less causing this list to change. In fact in 2012 and 2013 I ended up seeing my number one film of the year after I wrote up my Top 10. So the question becomes, “Why Do it?”. Well, for one it’s fun. At least I find it an enjoyable exercise as I try to break down the year that was. I watched 163 movies that were released in 2014. Narrowing that 163 down to a Top 10 is a challenge I enjoy.

Looking at 2014 as a whole it is evident it was a pretty good year. »

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Dodges Nc-17, Is Officially Rated R

7 January 2015 12:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While this may come as a surprise to fans who have read the E.L. James novel, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has decided to hand out an R rating for the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation. Which means the movie barely dodged the deadly Nc-17 rating producers had been fearing. Here's the reason behind the MPAA's R rating for the adaptation:

"Strong sexual content including dialogue, some unusual behavior and graphic nudity, and for language."

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson star in Fifty Shades of Grey as 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele, who strike up a scintillating affair. The book is extremely graphic, and the makers of the studio were understandably concerned over the material and how the MPAA might perceive some of it. Some fans may be disappointed to learn that star Jamie Dornan will not go full-frontal in the movie. Dakota Johnson, »
