12 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

To celebrate the release of Metal Hurlant Chronicles – out on DVD and Blu-ray now – here’s a cool infographic celebrating all things Metal Hurlant (aka Heavy Metal)

Fantasia 2015: ‘Synchronicity’s’ obtuse storytelling and excellent visuals make for a mixed bag

25 July 2015 9:43 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Synchronicity

Directed by Jacob Gentry

Written by Jacon Gentry and Alex Orr

2015, USA

Shadows abound, pierced with swaths of light cut to ribbons by venetian blinds. Odd, angular futurist architecture juts into the sky, illuminated by spotlights from passing flying vehicles. There are fans slowly rotating everywhere. This is the future, after all. There must be fans. If nothing else, Synchronicity cuts an interesting shape, a quasi-dystopian future that seems devoid of affection, warmth. Taken purely on visuals, Synchronicity is top-notch. The problem, then, lies in storytelling.

Synchronicity presents a twisted, tangled pretzel of a narrative, a classic time travel thriller that loops back on itself multiple times, placing the audience in danger of crossed eyes. Narratives this complex have been attempted before, but where Synchronicity falters is how it conveys the narrative. The complex story is made more head-spinning than advisable by some unclear storytelling, making an otherwise good »

Fantasia Film Fest Review: Synchronicity

24 July 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When 2007’s The Signal first hit audiences, it did a hell of a job showing a small glimpse of the capabilities of the film’s trio of writer/directors, David Bruckner, Dan Bush and Jacob Gentry. Each director’s segment felt completely different from the previous director’s, and there was a sense of promise that you felt upon watching the film, one that made you know each of the three filmmakers would go onto promising futures in storytelling. Bruckner went on to direct the best segment of the first V/H/S film and is now set to helm the latest Friday The 13th, while Bush directed one of the most memorable films of this year, the sci-fi grounded in reality film The Reconstruction Of William Zero (review). Gentry, following The Signal, focused on solid short films, and the made for MTV slasher series of films, My Super Psycho Sweet 16. »

‘The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai’ Blu-ray Review

22 July 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Peter WellerJohn Lithgow, Christopher Lloyd, Jeff Goldblum, Ellen BarkinLewis Smith, Rosalind Cash, Robert Ito, Pepe Serna, Ronald Lacey, Matt Clark, Clancy Brown, William Traylor, Carl Lumbly, Vincent Schiavelli | Written by Earl Mac Rauch | Directed by W.D. Richter

Arrow Video know their cult movies, you just have to look at the ones they’ve released to see that. If you were to ask the question, how crazy can a cult movie be? I think you just have to look at their latest release for that. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension is probably one of the strangest (yet still good) Eighties movies you’ll ever see.

When Buckaroo Banzai (Peter Weller), the brilliant physicist-neurosurgeon-martial arts master-secret-rock star manages to use the Oscillation Overthruster to travel to the 8th dimension he draws the attention of the Red Lectroids (an alien race obviously.) Working with Banzai’s »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

Fantasia 2015: The Signal Director Returns to Sci-fi with Synchronicity [Clip]

21 July 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

It's been a few years since The Signal (review) director Jacob Gentry made a big splash and though he's kept busy, we've been waiting for his return to sci-fi and that return looks like it's going to be a winner.

Described as a "mind-bending 'Sci-fi Noir' in the tradition of Dark City, Blade Runner, and Alphaville" Synchronicity stars Chad McKnight as Jim Beale, a physicist who creates a time bending machine and then falls in love with a girl he also thinks is trying to steal his invention. Paranoia much?

Along with McKnight, the movie also stars Brianne Davis, Aj Bowen and the ever awesome Michael Ironside.

Today in Movie Culture: The Original Ant-Man, 'Star Wars' Toys That Won't Fit In Your Home and More

20 July 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:   Vintage Summer Movie Preview of the Day: Was 1982 the best summer for movies? It looks that way in retrospect looking at this sneak preview of the season's offerings of 33 years ago, but let's remember that a lot of these releases, such as Blade Runner and Tron were box office disappointments.   Vintage Image of the Day: Garrett Morris as Ant-Man in a Saturday Night LIve sketch beside Dan Aykroyd as The Flash. It's because of this sketch (watch it here) that Morris got a cameo in the new Ant-Man movie.    Easter Eggs of the Day: In addition to the Garrett Morris cameo in Ant-Man, Mr. Sunday Movies humorously points out all the Marvel, Disney and...

What a Year for Sci-Fi - Check Out This 1982 Summer Movie Preview

17 July 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Another alien from outer space is featured in..." Ready for an awesome trip back in time? This video has been on YouTube for years, but it's surfacing again this week thanks to a post on The A.V. Club about just how awesome the movies from the summer of 1982 were. It's an uploaded recording of a segment from Entertainment Tonight in 1982 looking ahead at the upcoming summer of movies, specifically the science fiction movies playing that year. Many will recall that 1982 was one of the best years for sci-fi movies ever, and this preview reminds us of all the glorious movies that arrived that summer: Steven Spielberg's E.T., Poltergeist, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, John Carpenter's The Thing, and Tron. Just... sit back, relax, and enjoy the crap out of this vintage TV summer movie preview. Thanks to SlashFilm for the tip on this, »

Incredible 30 Min Sci-Fi Short Film 'The Leap' by Karel van Bellingen

16 July 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Nine months in the dark, freezing cold, sharing breathers." This is cool. Get ready for a deep dive with this short film, titled The Leap, from Belgian director Karel van Bellingen. The short takes place on the "Old World", meaning Earth after a "New Earth" is discovered in 2069. Millions of people left back on the old Earth cannot afford the "leap" to the new Earth, so it becomes their dream and they'll figure out any way to get there. Which is why the Ipma exists, the Interplanetary Migration Administration, in order to police and manage the growing human trafficking problem. There are definitely some strong Blade Runner influences in this, but it also has a slightly different story to tell. Thanks to Geek Tyrant for the tip. Fire this up below. Synopsis from Vimeo: In 2069, New Earth is declared open for civilian migration, a decade after its discovery. As tales »

50 forgotten sci-fi films from the 1990s

16 July 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may remember Independence Day, The Matrix, The Phantom Menace. But what about these forgotten 90s sci-fi films? And are any worth seeing?

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.

But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.

So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »

Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut

14 July 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Directors' cuts can go both ways, as Ridley Scott proves. Remove studio experience and let a filmmaker tell the story he'd planned and you can be treated to a piece like the Kingdom of Heaven Director's Cut, a far more enjoyable, well-structured and comprehensible film than the version that underwhelmed in cinemas. Or, you get a Blade Runner situation, with five different versions of a film in existence and debate over which really represents the true vision.

With the Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past, out now on Blu-ray and DVD, the end result is fortunately a success, mostly. This lengthier version of the Fox superhero smash is a richer, better version of the film shown to cinema audiences. But while the new scenes add greater cohesion to the franchise, there are several where the cutting room floor seems the most fitting abode.

Philip K. Dick's The Man In The High Castle Gets a New Trailer

14 July 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I was very excited to hear that Amazon Studios decided to take The Man in the High Castle to series. Based on Philip K. Dick's award-winning novel, and executive produced by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), The Man in the High Castle explores what it would be like if the Allied Powers had lost WWII, and Japan and Germany ruled the United States.

The pilot episode aired last year to high praise. It was a stylish and interesting take on the source material that was full of espionage and historical intrigue as well as some great world-building.

Now, in the wake of Comic Con, a new trailer has emerged that features some new footage.

Synopsis:

A glimpse into an alternate history of North America. What life after WWII may have been like if the Nazis had won the war.

10 Notorious Box Office Bombs That Are Actually Pretty Good

14 July 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Even though the movie business is a commercially-driven industry, high financial returns aren’t exactly a barometer of quality in an age of sequels, remakes, reboots and franchises. For example, the Transformers and Twilight franchises have each earned well over $3bn at the box office despite generally being awful, while at the other end of the spectrum several all-time classics such as It’s A Wonderful Life, The Shawshank Redemption and Blade Runner were considered box office bombs when they were first released, but are now regarded as some of the greatest movies ever made.

With that in mind, this article will take a look at ten notorious box office bombs that are actually pretty good movies in their own right, although admittedly none of them are anywhere near on a par with the aforementioned classics. Despite the fact that many of these movies have some pretty major shortcomings, »

Ex MacHina – The Blu Review

14 July 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Isn’t it strange, to create something that hates you?”

It’s hard to find smart, thought-provoking science fiction stories these days, with current trends dictating bigger is better. Writer-Director Alex Garland’s Ex MacHina, released this past April, was small-scale, slow-paced, and breaks no new ground in terms of ideas. Yet thanks to a terrific script, exceptional characterizations, and one super-sexy robot, it was the best new science fiction film I’d seen since Under The Skin. Like Garland’s earlier scripts, which gave us fresh takes on the zombie genre (28 Days Later) and the space-flight-to-save-the-earth genre (Sunshine), Ex MacHina took a familiar sci-fi concept, in this case the replication of human presence via artificial means, and makes it new.

Ex MacHina told the story of Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a low-ranking worker bee at Bluebook, the world’s “biggest internet search engine”. The film opened with him winning an »

"Metal Hurlant Chronicles" Makes As Much Sense As Its Title

14 July 2015 12:55 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Metal Hurlant Chronicles debuted in 2012 with a six-episode season that was followed by another sixer in 2014. Each episode is a standalone story set on different worlds and the unifying thread of the show is the titular Metal Hurlant, an asteroid passes through the solar system and encountering the various worlds that the show introduces. With a smattering of genre cameos from the likes of Blade Runner’s Rutger Hauer, Indiana Jones’s John Rhys-Davies, and Terminator’s Michael Biehn, the show shoots itself in the foot by seeming more like a narrative revue of past shows, specifically The Twilight Zone and Star Trek, than a wholly new and exciting creation.

6 Times Harrison Ford Kicked All the Ass

13 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Whether he's punching Nazis, shooting Stormtroopers or kicking terrorists off 747's, Harrison Ford is always ready to kick ass on the big screen.

Even though Ford is getting up there in years, he has carved out considerable care space in the hearts of movie fans. And he's gearing up for a mini-action hero comeback, reprising his role as Han Solo in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" this December, as well as that of Deckard in a "Blade Runner" sequel.

In honor of his birthday on July 13, here are six of our favorite scenes where Ford action hero'd his way out of trouble.

6. Bus Crash From "The Fugitive" (1993)

Most action heroes would call it a day after making a death-defying leap from a bus -- just a split-second before it was smushed by an oncoming train.

But for Ford's Dr. Richard Kimble, that was just a prelude to a mad dash »
