Comic Book Review – Ring of Roses

28 July 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Ring of Roses…

The X-Files Meets The Da-Vinci Code!  London, 1991. But not the London you may be familiar with. Imagine an England under Catholic rule – a rule so iron-fisted that science and technology has been set back decades.  Lawyer Samuel Waterhouse investigates a ghoulish murder mystery set in alternate history London of religious mania, secret societies, and the plague.

With Ring of Roses you hold in your hands something quite wonderful.  A slice of “what could have been” dystopia” delivered by the artistic talents of John Watkiss and with the writing skills from Das Petrou.  This is a skewed corrupted England, distorted and held back in progression by nearly half a century due to catholic rule; this is shown to us via brutal murders, the return of the Bubonic Plague, religious persecution and players who can or can’t be trusted.

This all looks instantly fantastic and you »

12 Things You Learn Hanging Out With Mark Ruffalo

19 June 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Mark Ruffalo spent his twenties drifting through what he estimates as 600 failed auditions, and later quit Hollywood twice – but these days, he seems to have it all figured out. Especially since he was belted by gamma rays. "As an actor, you can do everything," says Ruffalo, 48, who’s following Avengers: Age of Ultron with a role as a bipolar dad in the indie drama Infinitely Polar Bear, opening in theaters today. "I grew up in the theater, and you could do a musical, a comedy, a tragedy. Those kind of »

16 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The 1956 film Forbidden Planet is one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time.

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Poorly Cast Hoffman as Polemical Stand-Up Comic and Free Speech Advocate in Timorous Biopic

4 June 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Lenny Bruce: Dustin Hoffman in the 1974 Bob Fosse movie. Lenny Bruce movie review: Polemical stand-up comedian merited less timid biopic (Oscar Movie Series) Bob Fosse's 1974 biopic Lenny has two chief assets: the ever relevant free speech issues it raises and the riveting presence of Valerie Perrine. The film itself, however, is only sporadically thought-provoking or emotionally gripping; in fact, Lenny is a major artistic letdown, considering all the talent involved and the fertile material at hand. After all, much more should have come out of a joint effort between director Fosse, fresh off his Academy Award win for Cabaret; playwright-screenwriter Julian Barry, whose stage version of Lenny earned Cliff Gorman a Tony Award; two-time Best Actor Oscar nominee Dustin Hoffman (The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy); and cinematographer Bruce Surtees (Play Misty for Me, Blume in Love). Their larger-than-life subject? Lenny Bruce, the stand-up comedian who became one of the »

The Naked Gun's timeless buffoonery

26 May 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We take a look back at 1988's The Naked Gun, its timeless brand of comedy, and Leslie Nielsen's superb performance...

Detective Frank Drebin's outside his Los Angeles police precinct, squeezing off shots into the receding backside of his own car.

How this came to happen almost defies description. Having driven his Ford Crown Victoria into a couple of bins outside the building, Drebin stumbles out, seemingly oblivious to the airbags going off inside. One airbag knocks the car into drive and off the vehicle goes, almost running Drebin over as it rumbles downhill.

As an orchestrated bit of comedy cinema, it's the knockabout equivalent of the famous scene in The Untouchables, where Brian De Palma expertly wrings every drop of suspense from a pram thudding down a flight of stairs at a train station.

On the spur of the moment, Drebin comes to the conclusion that there's a criminal »

Watch: David Cronenberg Summoned His Demons to Make 1979's 'The Brood'

6 May 2015 8:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Psychotherapist Oliver Reed enables his patients to physically mutate in response to their own repressed rage. Samantha Eggar is the unlucky mom who spawns the titular monsters: dwarf-like creatures who do the murderous bidding of mom’s subconscious impulses (akin to Professor Morbius’ Id Monster in "Forbidden Planet"). Apparently inspired by his then-recent divorce and child custody battle, Cronenberg reportedly considers this study of marital rage to be his "Kramer vs. Kramer. »

15 greatest ever Doctor Who monsters ranked

23 April 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who has debuted its latest menacing monster - an armoured antagonist that looks something like a grasshopper crossed with a tank.

In over 50 years, the world's longest-running sci-fi series has introduced us to hundreds of weird and wonderful creatures - but which is the best?

After much debate, here's our definitive ranking of the most memorable and terrifying monsters from 1963 to 2015 (and we're not counting humanoid wrongdoers, so no Master!).

Read on, then join the debate in the comments below...

15. The Haemovores

1980s Doctor Who can sometimes come in for an unfair drubbing - but there was still plenty of imagination, wit and inventive horror on show when the show was at its best.

'The Curse of Fenric' - airing as part of the final 'classic' series in 1989 - is a strong case for the defence, introducing the vampiric Haemovores - a species of evolved humans who lurked eerily »

Exclusive: Thn Talks to Grace Phipps for ‘Dark Summer’

13 April 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We love a good horror here at Thn and were rather impressed with new release Dark Summer. The film stars It Follows actor Keir Gilchrist as Daniel, a teenage boy whose obsession with female classmate Mona. His obsession with her leads to some very dark places, including Mona’s death and being placed under house arrest for the summer. It is then that he realises that he is not alone, someone or something is haunting him, and he has no place to run.

Playing Mona is up-and-coming young actress Grace Phipps. Phipps started her career in the David Tennant starring Fright Night before going onto a regular role in American television show The Nine Lives of Chloe King. This was followed with a recurring stint on the phenomenally successful The Vampire Diaries. Then she landed a role in the newest Disney craze Teen Beach Movie. In-between Teen Beach and it’s sequel, »

Throwback Thursday – Go Back In Time With These Eight Essential Sci-fi Films

12 March 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Beth Kelly

Science fiction, by its very nature, seeks to innovate in storytelling. Restricted only by the boundaries of their imaginations and the limits inherent to their craft, filmmakers of this genre use complex cinematic effects and fantastical plotlines to create worlds outside time. These films are notable for their craftsmanship as well as their embedded social and political messages, which later serve as reflections of the time periods during which they were produced. For enthusiasts of film, culture, and recent American history, classic science fiction movies provide a window into the past while predicting the course of society’s future

1. Metropolis (1927)

At date of its release this was the most expensive silent film ever made. Unfortunately, in the time since its initial debut in Weimar Germany, nearly a quarter of the original film has been lost. Legendary German director Fritz Lang, a notorious control freak, used inventive »

It’s still to be seen if Chappie will go down as a classic in the robot sci-fi genre, but if it whetted your appetite for artificial intelligence movies and android action scenes, here are nine of the best robotic heroes and nine of the craziest robotic villains in cinematic history.

Robert Kinoshita, Robot Creator for ‘Lost in Space’, ‘Forbidden Planet’ Dies at 100

15 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The science fiction world has lost a great artist. Robert Kinoshita, who worked as production designer and art director in film and television for decades, has passed away.

There are many people who would be hard pressed to name any of the actors from the 1960’s sci-fi TV cult darling Lost in Space or the 1956 film Forbidden Planet. Many of these same people would look at a photo of the robot from Forbidden Planet and say, “Oh yes. That Robby the Robot.” These same people would also probably be able to answer the trivia question: What did the robot in Lost in Space say when times got tough? (“Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!” They have Kinoshita to thank for these robot memories as he designed robots for both of these sci-fi classics.

While Kinoshita will mostly be remembered as a ‘robot builder’, Lost in Space and Forbidden Planet were just two »

Robert Kinoshita, Designer of ‘Lost in Space’ Robot, Dies at 100

13 January 2015 5:14 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Film and television production designer and art director Robert Kinoshita, best known for designing the robot from the 1960s cult hit sci-fi series “Lost in Space” and its ancestor, Robby the Robot from the film “Forbidden Planet,” died Dec. 9 at age 100.

The robot from “Lost in Space” was famous for declaring, in a mechanical but definitely somewhat panicked tone, “Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!”

Kinoshita worked on his first film in 1937, “100 Men and a Girl,” but his film career was temporarily derailed when he and his wife were forced into a Japanese internment camp in Arizona during World War II.

He eventually returned to Hollywood to work on the 1956 sci-fi classic “Forbidden Planet” as a robot builder, including work on the film’s Robby the Robot.

Kinoshita continued to work in film and television as an art director through the 1980s, and in 2004 he was honored with a career retrospective by »
