Top 10 Favorite Film Robots

9 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hollywood has introduced us to a ton of awesome robots over the years. Robots have always been extremely cool, and they've sparked the imagination of what is possible. The robots we've seen in the movies have inspired technology and science. There are engineers out there who have created robots of their own and are constantly trying to perfect them. One day those robots will take over the world and destroy us all.

We all have our favorite robots, and I thought I'd come up with a top 10 list of my personal favorites. Note: Cyborgs like RoboCop don't count as robots on this list. 

If you'd like to share your own favorites, please feel free to post them in the comments section below!

Iron Giant - The Iron Giant

The Iron Giant is by far my favorite robot. He's the one I would have loved to play with as a kid. »

30 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

What true geek doesn't love a great science fiction film? Ever since I saw E.T. in the movie theater as a kid I was hooked on sci-fi. Over the years I've gone back and watched a ton of older films before my time, and continue to enjoy the awesomeness of this genre. Vimeo user 60fotogramas created a fantastic supercut that pays homage to the best sci-fi movies ever made. He calls it "Sci-Fi: Since 1902," and says:

This is a montage of some of the best science fiction films ever made. A total of 62 films ordered by release year, from 1902 to the present. Thanks for watching, enjoy.

I've included a list of all the movies in the video below:

1927- Metropolis

1929- Fraud in Mond

1931- Frankenstein

1933-The invisible Man

1936-The Devil Doll

10 Most Expensive Comic Books Ever Sold

22 May 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cgc

Gambling on the stock market? It’ll certainly get you fast results, but one of those results could be a fraud conviction. Starting your own business? You reap all the awards, but you suffer all the downsides too, and it’s pretty risky. Robbing a bank? Well, you get to wear fun masks, but there’s a good chance you’ll get shot. Nope, the easiest way to get rich these days is a lot more simple than that: just sell some old comic books.

Seriously! Since 2000, the Certified Guaranty Company – or Cgc – have been “grading” comics on a ten-point scale (ten being mint condition, one being that mouldy old Beano you found in your grandparent’s attic which the dog then ate), which means collectors can independently verify how much their funny books are worth. And as much as you covet your longbox collection, when you see how »

25 Things Star Wars Taught Us About Making Movies

4 May 2014 6:36 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Star Wars is important not just as a pop culture phenomenon, but also because the original trilogy was so innovative in its storytelling and production. Here is a list commemorating the top 25 aspects of movie making that Star Wars has forever changed.

Movies that usher in a new era of filmmaking are very rare. They exceed expectations not just because they are entertaining or have memorable stories, but because they expand our expectations as far as what movies are capable of. The original Star Wars trilogy is one collection of such films. A New Hope especially was a film that effectively raised the bar as far as what movies were capable of. The following is a list of the most important things that Star Wars has taught us about making movies. Audiences everywhere are forever indebted.

Each month the Cinelinx staff will write a handful of articles covering a specified film-related topic. »

How Movies Have Envisioned The Singularity Since 1927

18 April 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Transcendence casts Johnny Depp as a brilliant scientist who plots out grand plans for The Singularity, only to become that omnipotent, sentient technological himself when an assassination attempt goes awry. While the new film is a look at what happens when technology becomes humanoid, it’s certainly not the first movie to ever do so. In fact, cinema has been toying with the idea of The Singularity — the point at which A.I. acquires beyond-genius-level intelligence — since the 1920s, even if it was never called that back then. The Singularity has been showing up in films for decades, ranging from talking, all-knowing computers who refuse to do what we say to robots who serve along humans without explicit direction or order. As such, there are some amazing examples of Retro Singularity, a primitive, Tomorrowland-esque version of the future that writers of the past may have not even known they were predicting. Think »

Warner Archive Collection unsaddles The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons of Maverick on DVD

7 March 2014 10:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg reviews the DVD releases of The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons of Maverick...

As much as James Garner (Murphy’s Romance) is associated with the Western television series Maverick one is reminded when watching the episodes again that other members of the family of con artists and poker players make an appearance, in particularly Jack Kelly (Forbidden Planet) who unlike Garner appeared in all five seasons.  The partnership of brothers Bret (Garner) and Bart (Kelly) allowed for a lot of mischievous antics which saw them encounter corrupt lawmen, hostile Indians, beautiful damsels, and conniving cattle ranchers.

Always quoting words of wisdom from their dear Pappy, James Garner got the opportunity to play dual role of the elder Maverick in an episode named after him; the show stars Adam West (Batman) as villain with a cowboy hat which predates his transformation into a superhero wearing a cape and cowl. »

Complete 'Godzilla' Design Revealed

26 February 2014 10:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The beast has been unleashed! Its finally here, the first full-body look at Gareth Edwards' Godzilla.

Earlier this week, Empire Magazine revealed their latest magazine cover, set against Japan's traditional Rising Sun background (despite the fact that this reboot takes place in San Francisco). Since that limited edition collectible cover will be available for subscribers only, the publication has now released their regular cover for April, which will be available on newsstands everywhere February 27. They will also be releasing a "megazine" that is 30% larger than a standard issue, and, in case you missed it yesterday, you can also take a look at the second trailer.

This issue of Empire Magazine will take fans on the set of Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. The director will be signing copies of Empire at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in London to celebrate.

Godzilla comes to theaters May 16th, 2014 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, »

Forget About 3.5″ Figures: Forbidden Planet’s Best Doctor Who Merchandise

24 February 2014 9:52 AM, PST | Kasterborous.com | See recent Kasterborous news »

Andrew Reynolds is a writer at Kasterborous Doctor Who News and Reviews - All the latest Doctor Who news and reviews with our weekly podKast, features and interviews, and a long-running forum.

Let’s face it, those 3.5 inch Doctor Who figures have been very poorly received. Character certainly seem to have scored an own goal with their cost-cutting exercise, so much so that we’ve heard recently that certain future releases have been curtailed. To commemorate over 50 years of time travelling madness, let’s put the 3.5 inch figures to

Life-Size Batman Bust Features Rumored Batman Vs. Superman Color Scheme

21 February 2014 3:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Batman we knew and loved from his ’80s and ‘90s "Modern Age" comic appearances jumps off the pages and into the real-world in this amazing life-size bust from Sideshow Collectibles. The bust is available for preorder from Forbidden Planet for £537.99 (roughly $900).

Rumor has it that one of two suits that Ben Affleck will be sporting in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel will be grey/blue. I imagine the colors for the Batsuit in the film will be more muted than that of this bust, which stays very true to the color palette used in the comics. 

As always, Sideshow Collectibles did a fantastic job translating this character. We’ll have to wait to see if Snyder/Affleck’s take on the Caped Crusader is as faithful a translation. For details on the possible reveal of that Batsuit, click here.

Trailer For Documentary ‘Marvel Renaissance: How The Superheroes Have Conquered Hollywood’

14 February 2014 8:09 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last summer, a French film crew came to New York to interview me for TV documentary about the History of Marvel over the last 15 years. We shot the interview over at Forbidden Planet and had a blast.

Marvel Renaissance: How The Superheroes Have Conquered Hollywood tells the story of how Marvel, after its bankruptcy in late 1996, conquered Hollywood and how its properties changed forever the face of the entertainment industry. The movie is not only about the Marvel mutation: it is also about the superpower of cultural properties and their impact on the entertainment industry over the last 10 years.

Produced by Empreinte Digitale for French Channel Canal+ and directed by Philippe Guedj and Philippe Roure, the documentary take a look at this “super decade” and what is really at stakes behind the rise of Marvel, until its fusion with Disney in 2009.

The documentary consist of two parts: the bankruptcy years »

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool

by Heather Wixson

Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish. A gritty and engaging tale of deceit, violence and desperation, Nobody Can Cool is anchored by a breakout performance by Nick Principe (best known from his work in the Laid to Rest series, Madison County and »
