Spend New Year's Eve with These Genre Films

29 December 2014 6:35 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After diving into all the great Christmas-themed slashers and horror movies like Silent Night, Deadly Night, Santa's Slay, Christmas Evil, Saint Nick, and many others, it’s sometimes hard to believe there’s another great holiday to revel in just around the corner. There might not be as many films directly centered on ushering in the New Year, but there’s plenty to keep you entertained for a few days and nights.

I realize that not everyone smiles in glee like I do as teenagers get axed and knifed. Some folks just want some alternate choices in the face of all the countdowns and variety shows they’re bombarded with every year. The list I’ve put together includes not only slasher and horror flicks, but disaster, sci-fi, and action-oriented ones as well.

“New Year’s Evil” tells the tale of a Punk Rock and New Wave TV show host »

10 Ridiculous Holiday Horror Films

11 December 2014 1:10 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

TriStar Pictures

Christmastime is a cinephile’s dream. Not only will they have a smorgasboard of memorabilia, Criterion Collection blu-rays and old props from the set of a Jim Jarmusch movie that went for surprisingly little money at auction under their tree come the morning of December 25th, that’ll be the icing on the cake of a whole month of superlative festive films. From It’s A Wonderful Life to Die Hard to A Muppets Christmas Carol (which features both the definitive Scrooge in Michael Caine and the definitive Charles Dickens in Gonzo), the schedules and cinemas are stuffed with classic Christmas films.

Some people’s movie tastes skew a little darker, though. A little bloodier. A little lighter on the festive cheer, a little heavier on the buckets of gore and B-movie production values. Horror film makers don’t miss a trick, though, and having already mined Halloween, »

9 Reasons The Muppet Christmas Carol Should Have Won an Oscar

10 December 2014 1:41 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Unforgiven won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1993. You know what didn't win? The Muppet Christmas Carol! For that, the Academy remains... unforgiven. (Nailed it.)  The Muppet Christmas Carol isn't just a great holiday movie or a great Muppet movie; it's a great piece of classic American cinema. Michael Caine cries real, human tears multiple times, yells, screams, and gives a career-defining performance as Ebenezer Scrooge, and he does all of this while talking to Muppets. Sure Jim Henson wasn't around yet, but we have a feeling Charles Dickens' original intention for this legendary tale was for it to involve frogs, pigs, and whatever Gonzo is. Here's why we »

Oswald Morris obituary

19 March 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar-winning British cinematographer who worked on a wide range of film classics

The Oscar-winning British cinematographer Oswald Morris, who has died aged 98, will be remembered for many classics, including Moulin Rouge, Fiddler on the Roof, Moby Dick and Lolita. He worked with some of the great directors, John Huston, Sidney Lumet, Carol Reed, Stanley Kubrick and Franco Zeffirelli. Many of Morris's films are landmarks in the history of colour cinematography. For Moulin Rouge (1952) he used filters to create a style reminiscent of paintings by Toulouse-Lautrec. For Fiddler on the Roof (1971), which won him an Oscar, he filmed with a silk stocking over the lens to give a sepia effect.

Morris also shot popular favourites such as The Guns of Navarone (1961), Oliver! (1968), The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965) and The Man Who Would Be King (1975), and photographed acting luminaries: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Gregory Peck and Humphrey Bogart. »
