Top 5 Movie Mistakes - Batman (1989)

7 hours ago

This time on Top 5 Movie Mistakes we cast our minds back a few decades to the seminal superhero movie from director Tim Burton, Batman. While it was in no way the first comic book movie, nor the first big screen adaptation of a DC property, it was the beginning of what we see today in terms of the superhero blockbuster. At the time the moviegoing public scoffed at the idea of Michael Keaton playing The Dark Knight, but the inclusion of Jack Nicholson to the cast, stepping into the iconic role... Read More »

Cheech & Chong vs Jason in a Friday the 13th sequel? It could have happened

22 November 2017 5:03 PM, PST

When Jason Lives: Friday The 13th Part VI was released in 1986, it had been just six years since the birth of the franchise, and with just as many films under their belts, you could sense that the producers were scrambling for gimmicks to keep Jason Voorhees hacking up campers for years to come. While speaking with Mick Garris on Post Mortem, Jason Lives director Tom McLoughlin revealed that Friday the... Read More »

James Franco recreated nearly 25 minutes of The Room for The Disaster Artist

22 November 2017 4:08 PM, PST

Nearly fifteen years ago, Tommy Wiseau brought us The Room, a bizarre film which quickly became a cult classic and has even been referred to as the Citizen Kane of bad movies. Even if you've never seen it for yourself, chances are good that you're familiar with a few choice lines or confusing scenes, but audiences who have somehow remained ignorant of The Room are about to be...

Denis Villeneuve is still digesting Blade Runner 2049's box-office struggles

22 November 2017 3:20 PM, PST

Although it's probably safe to say that most of us were anxiously awaiting the release of Blade Runner 2049, that anticipation didn't exactly turn into a sizeable box-office success for the long-awaited sequel. At the moment, the film is sitting at a $252 million worldwide box-office gross, but the majority of that has come international markets, with the domestic box-office... Read More »

The animated Yeti movie Smallfoot starring Channing Tatum releases trailer

22 November 2017 1:04 PM, PST

Smallfoot is a Warner Bros. animated film (remember when they made Looney Tunes and Iron Giant?) about a Yeti (played by Channing Tatum) who wants to prove the existence of the elusive "human". Presumably shenanigans and the obligatory "CG animated character dances for some reason" ensues. Now, look, I'm not going to lie, that opening fake out worked for me, and the idea is kind of cute...

David Lynch says a fourth season of Twin Peaks a possibility!

22 November 2017 11:16 AM, PST

So, David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks: The Return has been out for months now, with the series having garnered mixed-to-favorable reviews. I personally had mixed feelings myself. I loved a lot of things (like the nuclear imagery), and hated other aspects (like everything with Dougie), but overall felt pretty positively about it. Oh, except the ending, though, which while philosophically and... Read More »

22 November 2017 11:15 AM, PST

Holy shirt-balls! It seemed inevitable with how good the first two seasons are, but NBC renewing their whimsical comedy The Good Place for a third season. For those who aren't aware, The Good Place is about a woman named Eleanor (Kristen Bell) who dies and goes to "The Good Place"...only we discover that she's not supposed to be in the Good Place. Shenanigans ensue. The premise does sound a bit hokey, and... Read More »

First Jurassic World 2 teaser finds Chris Pratt playing with a baby dino

22 November 2017 9:10 AM, PST

The Jurassic Park franchise was brought to life in a big way back in 2015, and though it may not have been the best movie audiences were hoping for, they still flocked in mass to help make it the third biggest movie ever (pushed down to fourth later that year by Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Naturally, the dino train needs to keep on chugging, and now we have the first footage of the upcoming sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, in preparation for the first trailer, which will...

Andy Serkis sheds light on the dark Supreme Leader Snoke

22 November 2017 9:01 AM, PST

The most mysterious figure in this new Star Wars trilogy is easily Supreme Leader Snoke, the deformed, mangled, shadowy-puppeteer who appeared only in hologram form in Force Awakens. Now we’ll get to see him in the flesh in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and actor Andy Serkis opened up about Snoke’s emotional state and history and how that affects his dealings with General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson)...

New 12 Strong trailer finds Hemsworth charging into battle

22 November 2017 6:56 AM, PST

Seeing soldiers gallantly riding into battle is normally reserved for stuff like Lord Of The Rings, Game Of Thrones and Braveheart, but you don’t often see scenes like that paired with machine guns and ballistic missiles. You’d think the horses would get spooked by all the noises. But that’s exactly how the brave men depicted in 12 Strong had to battle against the Taliban when... Read More »

This was previously reviewed as part of our Tiff 2017 coverage. Plot: A legal savant (Denzel Washington), who’s dead broke after years of fighting for civil rights, is lured to work in a big law firm. Review: Roman J. Israel, Esq., was a last minute addition to this year’s Tiff lineup, with only one still image and a very vague plot description to give us any clues as to what kind of... Read More »

Dan Harmon and Justin Lin are trying to make a Community movie happen

21 November 2017 5:50 PM, PST

Community was never exactly a ratings hit, so it's somewhat miraculous that the Dan Harmon TV series revolving around a group of misfits at Greendale Community College actually made it to its sixth season, bringing Community fans' dream of "six seasons and a movie" even closer. The sixth and final season of the series came to an end over two years ago, and the... Read More »
