9 hours ago | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones

How often do you rewatch films? New research carried out for the Sky Store has found that one in four people in the UK watch some films up to ten times, often because they've forgotten the plot or are struggling to unravel a complex story. The most popular films for watching again are as follows:-

Raiders Of The Lost Ark Star Wars Back To The Future Home Alone E.T. Jaws Jurassic Park Independence Day Titanic Alien

The survey found that the average person watched at least one film 29 times in their lifetime, though it's not clear if this indicates love for a particular film or simply relates to how often it's on television. »

Fantasia 2014 Interview: James Rolfe on ‘Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie’

16 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

James Rolfe created the Angry Video Game Nerd character and webseries after putting together a few short videos complaining about old Nintendo games, such as Ljn releases. Soon, as popularity grew, Angry Nintendo Nerd had to be changed to Angry Video Game Nerd so his character could delve into a larger oeuvre of terrible video games from the past. A lover of film and a director of shorts himself, Rolfe and his team often develop creative references to classic films throughout the videos, though still keeping the tone juvenile. Now, Avgn videos are just one of several series and columns on Rolfe’s website cinemassacre.com

His feature length-movie, about hunting down the long-rumoured stockpile of E.T. Atari cartridges buried in New Mexico, had its international premiere at Fantasia 2014, with co-director and longtime friend Kevin Finn in attendance with the Nerd himself. Rolfe took a few moments out of his »

What Video Games: The Movie inadvertently says about mainstream games

28 July 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Video Games: The Movie takes a breezy tour of history, but shows mainstream gaming in a less than favourable light, Ryan writes...

There is no propaganda in the Star Wars movies. You don't see posters devoted to praising Emperor Palpatine's benign leadership. You don't see adverts or bill board posters positioning Darth Vader as a wheezing man of the people.

But if you did see propaganda in the Star Wars universe, it might look a little bit like Video Games: The Movie - a slickly-produced, 105-minute hymn to an industry that is itself an all-conquering empire. Valued at approximately $66bn in 2013, gaming is now the most lucrative form of entertainment on the planet - and filmmaker Jeremy Snead's documentary charts the medium's rise with unquestioning fervour, from its bleeping, rudimentary inception in the middle of the 20th century to its technically astonishing achievements in the present.

Film Review: ‘Jellyfish Eyes’

25 July 2014 5:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like the megalomaniac in a one-dimensional Hollywood blockbuster, Takashi Murakami won’t be satisfied with anything less than world domination. So what better way for the influential Japanese artist to expand his grip on the popular imagination than by making a children’s movie with massive commercial appeal? That was the idea anyway, although Murakami’s “Jellyfish Eyes” failed to connect with local auds when released in April 2013, leaving the likably dopey pseudo-Spielbergian pastiche — which blends Godzilla movies, Pokemon cartoons and other stock fantasy elements with disappointingly generic results — to do the rounds of special-event screenings at international film festivals and museums.

Often likened to Andy Warhol in the way his output attempts to elevate low culture to a position of artistic respect, Murakami couldn’t have chosen a more different entree into filmmaking from his idol. Whereas Warhol’s first cinematic forays were edgy, sexually transgressive works that played »

Earth to Echo movie review: not good enough for me

24 July 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An inoffensive time-passer for youngsters, but adult genre fans who recall the 80s classics it draws on — E.T. and The Goonies — will be bored. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Well, for one, the title makes no sense. Earth to Echo might be the thing to call a sequel to this rather shameless mashup of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial and The Goonies, but it refers to absolutely nothing here that we can see. Three tween pals in Nevada — Alex (Teo Halm), Tuck (Brian “Astro” Bradley), and Chunk Munch (Reese Hartwig) — set off on a mysterious treasure hunt directed by strange maps that appear on their cell phones and discover a tiny alien robot-creature they dub Echo (for how it echoes their voices) who needs their help to reassemble some sort of device so it can, »

Earth To Echo review

24 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Three young friends meet a robot alien in Earth To Echo. Here's Pete's review of a sweet yet uneven family film...

Some of the most memorable family films to come out of America in the 1980s told the stories of ordinary young children (often boys) flung into extraordinary scenarios. Movies such as E.T., The Goonies and Flight Of The Navigator captured our hearts and our imaginations, and have never truly let go of them.

This is particularly true for the makers of Earth To Echo, whose film is an unashamed homage to those beloved classics. It tells the story of three friends spending their final night together before leaving town. Having received mysterious signals on their mobile phones, and seeking one last adventure together, they get more than they bargained for when they find Echo, a small alien robot who needs their help if he is to find his way home. »

Just When You Thought Chris Pratt Couldn't Get Any Dreamier, He French Braided a Girl's Hair During an Interview

23 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Here's a new fantasy to add to your Chris Pratt spank bank: You're alone in a romantic location—but not cheesy romantic, sexy romantic. Maybe a cabin in the woods? Maybe a bungalow on the beach? We don't know your life. In this scenario, he's not married to Anna Farris, because stealing another woman's husband is wrong. And with the tenderest of touch...he leans in...and French braids your hair. Yo, Chris Pratt can French braid really well! He can French the hell out of a braid! And he did just that for one lucky intern during a recent Entertainment Tonight interview: That touch! That technique! We would book all our appointments at a salon where we could talk »

23 July 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Chris Pratt was asked to French braid an intern's hair during a recent interview and the muscular, manly action star performed admirably. The “Guardians of the Galaxy,” who plays leader Star-Lord in the film,  sat down with “Entertainment Tonight's” Rob Marciano to discuss both the Marvel movie and 2015's “Jurassic World,” but the conversation quickly took an unexpected turn toward hair.

Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston’s mother, is speaking out against Lifetime’s upcoming biopic about her late daughter. In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, she said her family is “exhausted by the continuing misinformation” and pleaded to “let rest.”

“In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her,” Cissy said. “I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her.

Chris Pratt Proves He Can Do an Impressive French Braid by Doing One Mid-Interview

23 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sometimes the worst thing a journalist can do is reference a random thing a celebrity did or said on the internet and make them talk about it. But other times, that's the best thing to do. In this case, it's the latter, as an interview with Entertainment Tonight turned into Chris Pratt French-braiding the hair of an intern because of that one time he boasted on Instagram about French-braiding his wife Anna Faris's hair. In case you didn't believe before that it was Pratt who did the braid, now we know for sure that it was. He is great at braids! Get him a gig on Game of Thrones. »

Earth to Echo Review

23 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Those polarising threats of a Goonies remake lose some of their power this week with the release of Earth to Echo. David Green’s bittersweet anthem for alienated youth is so profoundly in love with the 1983 classic that The Goonies could be credited as supporting cast. Yet the tender delivery of this adoration is such that the frequent nods to it are entirely forgivable. By acknowledging the singularly treacherous tightrope between childhood and adolescence with generosity, Earth to Echo forges a fresh path over this well trodden ground. This is jointly achieved by the guilelessness of the four young leads and the clever incorporation of social media as narrator.

Our Goonies are Alex, Tuck and Munch – The Mulberry Ballers Club. A trio of misfits in the Las Vegas ‘burbs, bonded by their exclusion from the in-crowd. Munch (Reese Hartwig) is Data 2.0 – techie, eccentric and unintentionally hilarious. Foster kid Alex (Teo Halm »

7 Greatest Fictional Moon Landings in the Movies

21 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s nothing like the Moon for cinema. It’s been a fascination for fiction from way before motion pictures were invented, but it’s had a very special place in the history of film. From the beginning, at least as early as 1896 when Georges Melies created a lunar-based dream for A Nightmare (watch it here), filmmakers have been portraying our planet’s natural satellite in all kinds of ways. One of the most famous movie images of all time is a silhouetted bicycle in front of a giant full moon, in E.T. The Extra Terrestrial. Even one of the Hollywood studios incorporates a crescent moon in its logo. One of the reasons the Moon is so interesting for cinema is that for the majority of the art form it was still a relatively unknown thing. Then, 45 years ago today (or yesterday, depending on where you are in the world), man touched ground on its surface and »
