Answers to Can You Guess All The Moviesc Take Six!

5 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I did my best to make this one a bit tougher than they've been in the past and I think I succeeded. It wasn't until very late that all the right answers started swirling around the comments and one person managed to piece them all together in the end. I honestly don't know how anyone would have ever been able to get #4 unless you were watching the movie at the exact same time you were playing the game, or you have an absolutely perfect photographic memory. I was also a little surprised how long it took for people to get #12. However, overall I think you all did an impressive job working together to get numbers six and 19. That said, here are the answers to this latest graphic. If you want to browse the graphic before seeing the answers don't scroll below the image below or just click here to visit »

Castle season 7 episode 8 review: Kill Switch

1 December 2014 2:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A promising premise turns into a mess in this disappointing episode. Here's Laura's review...

This review contains spoilers.

7.8 Kill Switch

One of the things that Castle generally does fairly well is plotting. While much of the minutiae of writing on the show - the dialogue, the characterization, the explication - often fails to hit the mark, Castle has brought us some really imaginative crimes even as it rides the lines between Rick’s unbelievable criminal fantasy and Kate's extremely pedestrian realism. It also does a great job at giving most of us that wonderfully self-congratulatory moment of “a-ha!” just a bit before all the pieces fall into place for our detectives.

Kill Switch, on the other hand, does neither.

The episode starts out promisingly enough as when the murder of Paul Reeves, a Gao investigator, in the park leads to an Occupy-style economic activist. Esposito and Ryan are on his »

Childhood Film Fascinations That Became All-Time Favorites

28 November 2014 7:44 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In celebration of Sound on Sight’s 7th anniversary, writers were asked to come up with articles that present their childhood favorites in the realm of films, TV shows, books or games.

I chose films and anyone who has any familiarity with my writing knows I am virtually incapable of writing an article about a single film so I’m going to focus on a number of movies I saw in my youth.

Growing up in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio, I was fortunate enough to have my own room and my own TV set.

My family didn’t go out to the cinema very often so my introduction to movies was primarily through television.

The household cable television was limited to the family room and the parental restrictions that went with that so a far as movie watching went, it was mostly just me in my room where there were no »

Castle season 7 episode 7 review: Once Upon A Time In The West

24 November 2014 1:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

For the most part, this week's Castle is back to the show fans know and love. Here's Laura's review...

This review contains spoilers.

7.7 Once Upon A Time In The West

Okay, I’m going to get this off my chest up front because, for the most part, I enjoyed Once Upon A Time In The West.

Usually, when we identify with the characters we watch, it’s a good thing. (Unless you’re watching Hannibal, which does an amazing job of forcing you to see yourself in the last people you’d want to serve as your looking glass.) But generally, we feel connected to the narrative by such relationships, and that works well for everyone. This week, however, Castle made me feel more than a little patronized in that identification

The episode really starts, after we first see the death of this week’s victim, with Kate and Rick »

Sliff 2014 Review – The Dark Valley

19 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Dark Valley screens Friday November 21st at 9:00pm and Saturday November 22nd as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival. Both screenings are at The Plaza Frontenac Theater. Ticket information for the Friday show can be found Here.

Ticket information for the Saturday show can be found Here

Review by Dana Jung

It’s probably safe to say that a film genre with a fairly small resume’ is the German Western. Even in the heyday of “spaghetti” westerns in the 1960s and 70s there weren’t many horse operas originating from Germany. And although it utilizes many of the conventions of both classic and post-modern Western cinema, the new film The Dark Valley is a real treat for fans of Western movies looking for something different and memorable.

The Dark Valley begins with the arrival of Greider (Sam Riley) at a small village in the frozen “badlands” of the German-Austrian Alps. »

Ryan, Esposito, and Lanie are invited to the Castles’ (look how they’re one unit now, guys!) loft to celebrate the good news of their wedding!

Castle Recap: How the West Was Fun

17 November 2014 8:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week on ABC’s Castle, newlyweds Rick and Kate escaped the furled brows of those not invited to their impetuous wedding by making tracks for an Old West resort, to investigate a murder. When all was said and done, did their “so not a honeymoon” leave you satisfied?

The Case | ‎ I wasn’t a fan of this case, in part because I felt like the added layer of NYC-based relations — Phillip Dagmar and his wife — needlessly muddled the story. I’m typically game for the occasional “treasure hunt” motive, but this “Partner 3 covered for Partner 2′s murder of Partner 1″ stuff… »

'Castle' Recap: Castle and Beckett Go on Their Honeymoon

17 November 2014 1:19 PM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

The good news is that, after more than six seasons of will-they/won't-they/oh-they-finally-did/amnesia?! relationship drama, Castle and Beckett finally got married. The bad news is that they didn't invite any of their friends to the wedding, and now they have to deal with that. This week's episode of Castle, "Once Upon a Time in the West," opens with Ryan and Esposito being characteristically bitchy about this news and Lanie using it as leverage for free desserts. She's a good woman.

Update: This post has been updated to reflect the fact that Castle will air the sixth episode of its seventh season next Monday, Nov. 10.  Last fans heard of Castle's disappearance, Castle was being warned that he might not want the truth. And according to showrunner David Amann, the truth isn't going to reveal itself anytime soon considering that Castle's disappearance won't be revisited in the next four episodes. However, Amann did promise that we'll come into contact with it again in the near future. And when we do, fans don't need to be worried about the truth messing with Castle and Beckett's relationship. »

The Greatest Movie Death? ‘Once Upon a Time in the West’

27 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Editor’s Note: In the spirit of spooky time, the filmmakers behind The ABCs of Death 2 have all chosen their favorite movie deaths of all time, and Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado have agreed to shed some light on why they chose theirs. Take it away, Keshales and Papushado… There are million ways to die in the west, especially in Spaghetti westerns but the best way to go is being shot by the late and great Sergio Leone. This director really knows how to turn death into a huge spectacle of emotions. His death scenes are films within a film and the opening scene of Once Upon a Time in The West is the pinnacle of his work. For oh so many minutes Leone builds great tension by placing three gunmen in a train station. They all wait for their prey: Harmonica (Charles Bronson). It’s a long wait, and »

New on Video: ‘Once Upon a Time in America’

14 October 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Once Upon a Time in America

Directed by Sergio Leone

Written by Leonardo Benvenuti, Piero De Bernardi, Enrico Medioli, Franco Arcalli, Franco Ferrini, Sergio Leone

Italy/USA, 1984

Widely and justly heralded for his trendsetting Spaghetti Westerns, Sergio Leone’s final and arguably most ambitious work was in another staple American genre. Like these Westerns though, this film was as much of its respective variety as it was about it. Once Upon a Time in America, with its name obviously derived from Leone’s previous Once Upon a Time in the West, is a gangster film of the highest order, and, at the same time, it recalls so many of its predecessors, from the Warner Brothers classics of the 1930s to The Godfather. This was by design. As Leone himself notes, “My film was to be an homage to the American films I love, and to America itself.”

'Theory of Everything' composer says the precision of the piano made sense for Hawking

3 October 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I expect composer Jóhann Jóhannsson will be getting hired more and more in the near future. Having come up through the documentary world, he was tapped last year for Denis Villaneuve's "Prisoners" and he ran with the ball, crafting a dynamic, layered, ominous score that really didn't get its due. That course is sure to be corrected with his work on James Marsh's Stephen Hawking biopic "The Theory of Everything," a piano-driven work that stands out as one of the film's most identifying features. I spoke to Jóhannsson not long after catching "Theory," which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September, and you can tell he's still warming up to this process and the attention. He's sure to garner awards traction for his work on this film, however, so he'll get used to it all soon enough. Read through our back and forth below and get to know a guy who, »

Epic Star Wars Concept Art by Joshua Viers

2 October 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Industrial Light and Magic senior illustrator and art director Joshua Viers sent /Film some insanely radical Star Wars concept art that you have to see! The illustrations were done for fun, and you won't see them brought to life in any future Star Wars films or video games. That doesn't make them any less badass. 

The first piece that you see above is called "Empire Bargains," and one of the things I love about it most is the fact that it was inspired by the visual below, from the classic western Once Upon A Time in the West. The artist said that “Lucas was inspired by Leone’s work for the original films, and I wanted to recapture that."

I would love to have a print of that framed and up on a wall. Check out more art from the set below.

Before You Go Down 'Fury Road,' Watch This 3-Minute Tribute To The 'Mad Max' Series

30 September 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Over the summer, director George Miller called his long-gestating “Mad Max: Fury Road” a “western on wheels,” and indeed, the original trilogy didn’t shy away from using the archetypes of the western genre, with Max Rockatansky himself taking the place of Clint Eastwood’s similarly taciturn antihero in an arid landscape. In fact, Miller directly nodded to Eastwood’s most famous role in “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” by having a character introduce Mel Gibson’s Max as “The Man With No Name.” A new supercut from Dave Black further drives this point home, so put on your leather jacket, practice your squint and check it out below. Set to Ennio Morricone’s haunting “Man With A Harmonica” cue from the “Once Upon A Time In The West” score, the three-minute-and-twenty-second long montage, titled “The Man We Called Max,” cuts scenes from the original trilogy—in the wrong aspect ratio, »

Colm McCarthy interview: Peaky Blinders, Sherlock, Dr Who

30 September 2014 6:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chat to director Colm McCarthy about the new series of Peaky Blinders, drunk Sherlock, and Doctor Who’s mysteries…

Warning: contains a spoiler for Spooks series 7.

As period-gangster drama Peaky Blinders returns to BBC 2 for a second series, we caught up with director Colm McCarthy (Sherlock - The Sign Of Three, Doctor Who - The Bells Of St. John, Spooks) for a chat about the mythology of the new series, working with Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy, Matt Smith riding a motorbike up the Shard, drunken Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and er, manual sex in 1920s night clubs...

You’ve come in to direct the second series of Peaky Blinders after its look and performances have already been established. Do you take your cues from what’s gone before or do you approach it thinking, ‘right, what am I going to change?’

Both of those things. I’ve »
