11 Times Video Games Did Horror Better Than Movies

18 August 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Kojima Productions

Horror is something that comes in a whole bunch of different flavours; from volume-spiking jump-scares to grotesque imagery that will haunt you deep into the night, or just an over-reliance on gore to turn your stomach by default.

All of them transfer over to gaming perfectly, as although the medium of film challenges you to watch the events unfold on screen, gaming puts you directly in the shoes of that innocent person exploring a dilapidated old mansion, or the one who has to delve deeper into the depths of somewhere you’d otherwise stay away from just to retrieve an object to forward the story.

For many the first experience of having their horror-cherries popped would have been with either the first Silent Hill or Resident Evil games. Both operating in a manner that’s become known as ‘tank controls’ where your characters could only rotate before heading forward or back, »

10 Perplexing Sci-Fi Film Problems Solved By The Internet

12 August 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

The majority of the most engaging and convincing sci-fi stories out there can be boiled down to one simple, concise “what if?” question. Star Trek is “what if humans come together and explore space”, The Matrix is “what if the world is a computer simulation”, and After Earth is “what if we keep letting M. Night Shyamalan make films”. It’s these questions, often derived from our own lived experience and current world, which serve as a way into fantastical fictional worlds full of crazy aliens, awesome spaceships and laser pistols. Especially the laser pistols.

It also means that Sf fans are the most dedicated of any genre, their imaginations being piqued by the questions asked by authors and sent flying off in all directions. The worlds created in science fiction films, TV shows, novels and video games are usually so fully realised that most bases are covered, »

Insight into the failure of The Last Airbender & why M. Night isn't to blame

8 August 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

M. Night Shyamalan delivered some solid cinema with (arguably) his first three films, and quickly turned into a joke afterwards. Lady In The Water underperformed, The Happening was one of the most unintentionally funny films I've ever seen, and then there's the crown jewel; The Last Airbender. While I was excited for Shyamalan to work on something he hadn't written, the end result was his biggest transgression thus far. However, it seems that the director was not completely to blame.

Wayward Pines' M. Night Shyamalan, Cast Talk Fox's Eerie New Event Series

8 August 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There may — or may not — be a twist at the end of this video interview with Wayward Pines‘ executive producer M. Night Shyamalan and the cast of his upcoming Fox event series.

After all, Shyamalan made a name for himself writing and directing gotcha! films like The Sixth Sense and Signs.

And the fact that his new cast — which includes Carla Gugino (Political Animals), Toby Jones (The Girl), Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary), Shannyn Sossamon (Mistresses) and Charlie Tahan (Law & Order: Svu) — likens the thriller to Twin Peaks and Twilight Zone indicates that the »

10 Bad Movies Made Much Better If You Watch Them As A Comedy

8 August 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Tumblr

Once in a while a movie is so bad that it actually hurts. Just the thought of having to watch these blunders will make you want to stick a number 2 pencil in your eye. Mariah Carey’s Glitter, M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender, the list goes on. However, sometimes a movie is so bad, so preposterous and so poorly made that they transcend shoddy film-making to become truly entertaining cinema.

We’ve all experienced this. You have your buddies over and you watch a movie that you don’t really know too much about. Come to find out, the movie is horrible. However, you find yourself strangely intrigued with the horribleness you’ve just witnessed. This is an experience (that we totally just made up) that we refer to as “terrible movie comedic liberation”. This is when you are able to watch a bad movie, laugh at it and actually enjoy it, »

Revisiting Star Trek Tng: Hollow Pursuits

7 August 2014 11:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James looks back at one of season three's best Star Trek Tng episodes, introducing hapless Lieutenant Barclay...

This review contains spoilers.

3.21 Hollow Pursuits

The episode opens in Ten-Forward, where a character we've never seen before – Lieutenant Reginald Barclay – is causing a scene. He beats up La Forge, then Riker, then is about to sweep Troi off her feet when he's interrupted and called to the cargo bay by… La Forge! Turns out he's actually on the holodeck. Like M. Night Shyamalan if he directed an episode of The Twilight Zone, you did not see it coming.

When Barclay gets to the cargo bay he's given a dressing down by Riker and La Forge for his lateness and generally neglectful behaviour. They lament how such a loser managed to make it onto the Enterprise anyway. Although a better question might be how he made it to Lieutenant when he's basically incompetent. »

Why The Last Airbender Was Terrible And It Maybe Wasn't M. Night's Fault

7 August 2014 10:09 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If M. Night Shyamalan.s The Last Airbender is famous for anything, it.s for being an absolute disaster. Fans of the animated series were over the moon with anticipation for the film, but now it stands as one of the most reviled big budget blockbusters of the modern era. Usually you can trace a disaster of this proportion to some bad mojo going on behind the scenes, and if a recently unearthed message board post is to be believed, then The Last Airbender is no exception to that. This story comes to us from a fan message board called AvatarSpirit.net, where a user claiming to have behind the scenes knowledge about Shyamalan.s film has spilled the beans on some very dark, corporate details about the production. The user.s story begins by saying that things were all well and good in the first draft of the screenplay »

Summer Movies Flashback 1999: 'South Park' surprise and scathing 'Star Wars' reactions

7 August 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our continuing look back at some of the biggest summers we've lived through takes us back 15 years to one of the best recent movie seasons overall. In honor of the 2014 summer movie season, Team HitFix will be delivering a mini-series of articles flashing back to key summers from years past. There will be one each month, diving into the marquee events of the era, their impact on the writer and their implications on today's multiplex culture. We continue today with a look back at the summer of 1999. It was the summer I became Moriarty. To be fair, I had been contributing to Ain't It Cool for a little while already by that point, and I had been slowly but surely embracing the potential of the website and the audience that I was reaching. I had already taken a few trips to Austin, including a memorable stay at the third Quentin Tarantino Film Festival, »

Required Reading: Superhero Mark Duplass and the Disruptive ‘True Detective’

7 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Why The Sixth Sense Ending Has Never Been Matched” — Michael Howard at Esquire makes an honest case for a twist ending that’s remained peerless for 15 years. It’s funny to read something like this while remembering Fight Club came out the same year. Which is really the dominant twist? “The grand epiphany that our beloved child shrink had been dead all along did not come underhanded. The dots were there all along, but nobody, including the audience, wanted to connect them. The Sixth Sense‘s ending was shocking without being cheap, unforeseen without feeling deceptive, oddly comforting without seeming banal, and gave closure without looking lazy. Plus, it came at the end of an era during which audiences still allowed themselves to be surprised by major movies. It »

M. Night Shyamalan says 'Wayward Pines' is nothing like 'Twin Peaks'

30 July 2014 4:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

M. Night Shyamalan would like to make one thing perfectly clear: "Wayward Pines" is nothing like "Twin Peaks." "I think when it's all said and done, it has nothing to do with ['Twin Peaks']," said the director when I brought up inevitable comparisons between the two series during our chat at San Diego Comic-Con. "'Twin Peaks' and Tim Burton movies, they're just different tonalities. The world is different. Everyone speaks different. That's just the way it is. And in our...show, 'Wayward Pines,' everyone's acting very odd. You have to watch for ten episodes and you'll understand why they're acting odd. There's a reason. There's a grounded reason." In other words: while "Twin Peaks" might as well take place in an alternate universe, "Wayward Pines" is very much based in reality. So will all our questions be answered by the end of the show? And how about a second season? »
