Je t’aime, je t’aime

Yet another European art film director tries his hand at cerebral Sci-fi. Alain Resnais' openly experimental movie uses a generic time travel framework to, what else, explore the phenomenon of memory. Suicidal melancholic Claude Rich is projected back exactly one year, for exactly one minute. What could go wrong?

Cannes award to legendary Vilmos Zsigmond

We here at Tfh have always thought of the great Vilmos Zsigmond as one of "our" movie icons, having begun his distinguished cinematographic career in the humble swamps of low budget exploitation before rising on his own merit to a justly celebrated mainstream career. So it is with fond memories of the likes of The Sadist, The Name of the Game is Kill, The Time Travelers and Five Bloody Graves that we congratulate him on this latest award: From The Daily News - The legendary Hungarian-American cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, director of photography of the soon-to-be-released film ‘Atatürk,’ will receive a Life Time Achievement Award today from the 67th Cannes International Film Festival 2014.

In an extraordinary, Academy Award-winning career spanning some six decades, Zsigmond’s outstanding credits include “The Deer Hunter” and “Heaven’s Gate” directed by Michael Cimino, “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” and “Sugarland Express” by Steven Spielberg,

Please Don’t Let the Mom Die on How I Met Your Mother

Please Don’t Let the Mom Die on How I Met Your Mother
There are only four episodes left of How I Met Your Mother, which puts us right into "stick the landing" territory. And last night's episode, "Vesuvius," seemed to fall in line with the theory that the Mother is dead and Ted is recounting all of this as a widower. I buy that theory for a number of reasons, though Himym has long enjoyed misdirection — let's give the Dead Mom Theory a strong maybe. And let's also be clear: If the mother dies or turns out to have been dead, I will never forgive this damn show.The Dead Mom Theory has been floating around for a bit, and it gained traction in season eight's "The Time Travelers," in which we see Ted rush to the (unseen) Mother's apartment and say, "Exactly 45 days from now, you and I are going to meet." He tells her their love story and begs, "I

'How I Met Your Mother': 10 key moments in the Mother and Ted's history

'How I Met Your Mother': 10 key moments in the Mother and Ted's history
The 200th episode of "How I Met Your Mother" is called "How Your Mother Met Me," and it tells the story of how the Mother's (Cristin Milioti) life intersected with Ted's (Josh Radnor) over the years.

The episode will feature her perspective on a times she and Ted almost crossed paths, so it's a good time to review them. Here are some of the moments you may see (again) in Monday's (Jan. 27) episode.

'Pilot' (Season 1, episode 1)

In 2030, a middle-aged Ted Mosby (voiced by Bob Saget) sits down to tell his two kids the story of how he met their mom. The episode ends with a swerve, as the opening story is all about how Ted met Robin (Cobie Smulders). The on-screen kids and the audience both blurt out, "What?!," and we begin the very long and very winding road toward Ted's future.

'Milk' (Season 1, episode 21)

How I Met Your Mother Recap: Digging Up the Past

How I Met Your Mother Recap: Digging Up the Past
A couple of weeks ago, I was pretty enthusiastic about the episode “The Time Travelers,” in which Ted found himself alone at McLaren’s facing a hard truth, which is that his friends have gotten older. They’ve moved on. The gang doesn’t hang out as much as they used to. And amid Ted’s nostalgia for one night in particular, an imaginary Barney says, “Ted, this moment is already gone.” I admit, I got a little choked up, so I felt like a dupe last night when Future Ted says, “Kids, you can’t cling to the past, because no matter how tightly you hold on, it’s already gone.”Wait a minute, writers: As much as I dig the sentiment, and have ever since Nate said something similar to Claire in the series finale of Six Feet Under, you trotted it out three episodes ago!

Review: 'How I Met Your Mother' - 'The Time Travelers'

Review: 'How I Met Your Mother' - 'The Time Travelers'
A review of last night's "How I Met Your Mother" coming up just as soon as I DVR the news... I spent a good chunk of "The Time Travelers" feeling the same frustration I've had with much of this season. The jokes felt strained (Marshall using a falsetto to try to get out of the ladies room), or like watered-down versions of things "Himym" did much better back in the day (the entire time traveler gag was something used well, and sparingly, when Marshall visited his teenage self). Even the hints of darkness, like Ted realizing any relationship with Coat Check...

How I Met Your Mother Review: It's a Dance Off

  • TVfanatic
This week on How I Met Your Mother, Robin and Marshall battled on the dance floor, while Ted took a long hard look at himself and his future.  

"The Time Travelers " was a mashup of Multiplicity, Shelter Island and A Christmas Carol that at times confused the Dickens out of me. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed the episode, despite doing the dog head tilt a few times. 

The revelation that the Minnesota Tidal Wave night happened five years ago was a sort of Sixth Sense moment, yet I was left a little confounded as to what to make of seeing all the "Ted people" Adding to the evening's twists and turns was guest star Jayma Mays.

Her performance as the two coat check girls was great. I loved the contrast between the smartly dressed version on the left and the one on the right wearing Ted's Wesleyan sweatshirt. I don't think she is the mother,

The Doctor (William Hartnell), Steven (Peter Purves), and new companion Dodo (Jackie Lane), who is suffering from a cold, arrive in the Tardis some ten million years in the future on a giant spaceship carrying all the Earth's surviving plant, animal and human life (much of it miniaturized and in suspended animation) on a 700 year voyage to a new home on the planet Refusis II.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Robinson Crusoe on Mars’ Monkeys With Sci-Fi Genre

Chicago – A fascinating B-movie gem from 1964, “Robinson Crusoe on Mars” gives modern viewers an idea of what America’s collective imagination (concerning space travel) looked like during that brief moment in time. As an entertainment, it’s hokey and creaky beyond belief, but as a cinematic time capsule, it’s quite a trip.

The film begins with the most heartbreaking bait and switch in camp movie history. Two years before his success with “Batman,” Adam West shows up as an astronaut orbiting Mars. The deadpan earnestness of his performance is priceless right from the beginning, as he scolds a floating monkey with the line, “Listen Mona, this banana paste is meant for your survival only!” Sadly, the ship is soon forced to evacuate, killing off West and leaving only disgruntled monkey Mona and West’s crewmate, Kit, played by Paul Mantee. Seriously, it’s like being promised Keir Dullea and getting Gary Lockwood.

Red Movie Trailer - This Movie Looks Awesomely Entertaining

I gotta be honest... I was not expecting this movie to look so good. Especially since it comes from the director of films such as Flightplan and The Time Travelers Wife. Red looks freakin' awesome! From the trailer it seems like director Robert Schwentke has done a fantastic job adapting the Warren Ellis comic book, which, revolves around a group of retired CIA agents.

I had a smile on my face all the way through the trailer, this is going to be freakin' fun and entertaining film! I'm serious! Why would I lie to you? Check out the trailer below and see for yourself!

Synopsis:

Frank, Joe, Marvin, and Victoria used to be the CIA’s top agents — but the secrets they know just made them the Agency’s top targets. Now framed for assassination, they must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step
