Blu-ray Review: Dreamscape Collector’s Edition

12 December 2016 10:34 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: a man with special abilities to enter the dreams of sleeping clients and influence their subconsciouses is hired by a high-profile client to investigate his dreams and find out important information, but encounters pushback both external and internal that could lead to him never being able to escape the dream world. I’m talking about Inception, right? Wrong. That’s the plot of 1984’s Dreamscape, an underrated sci-fi horror fantasy that’s coming out on a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray from the good people at Scream Factory.

Dennis Quaid stars as Alex Gardner, a psychic who abandoned a government research project years ago and now gets by as a hustler, making bets on races for which he can foresee the outcomes. He’s recruited by scientists (Max von Sydow and Kate Capshaw) for a new project in which he will be psychically »

Spielberg at 70: bullies, monsters, and the 1970s

10 December 2016 2:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Bullock Dec 15, 2016

The Sugarland Express, Duel, Jaws, Close Encounters, and the work of Steven Spielberg in the 1970s...

To celebrate Steven Spielberg's 70th birthday on December 18th, here's part one of a daily series of articles working through his output, decade by decade. Beginning with the 1970s, Duel, Jaws and more..

See related  Star Wars: Rogue One review

The boy is planning something. Something big. It's the kind of mischievous scheme he'll fictionalise in his movies, put into the personalities of Chunk, Elliot, and young Indiana Jones. For now, however, this particular plan belongs to a young Steven Spielberg, and it'll require a colour wheel, a white sheet, a few extension cords, a little help from his sister Anne, and a lot of the kind of theatricality he'll eventually become famous for. It's the height of the Christmas season in the largely gentile neighbourhood of Crystal Terrace in Haddonfield, »

Reliving the joys of an 80s TV Christmas

8 December 2016 8:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jenny Morrill Dec 20, 2016

Russ Abbot, Bullseye, Noel Edmonds and a film we all watched in the same room. Christmas TV was more exciting in the 80s...

Cast your mind back to when Christmas Day wasn't about Doctor Who followed by sticking something on Netflix until it was time to go watch the annual fist fight outside the pub.

See related  Looking back at Martin Scorsese's The King Of Comedy The Wolf Of Wall Street review The Wolf Of Wall Street & Scorsese's confrontational films

In the 80s, Christmas was about seeing which fantastic fare the TV had decided to bless us with. Of course, the more prepared among us knew this well in advance, having eagerly pored over the Radio Times/TV Times to check that Jimmy Cricket's Family Laugh 'n' Waz would be shown. There it was – right after Reflections On The Eucharist With The Reverend Paul Leyland. »

Film Critics Name the Best Movie Theaters In the World — IndieWire Critics Survey

24 October 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

At long last, the Alamo Drafthouse is finally opening in Brooklyn this Friday, complementing a new wave of New York City cinemas that already includes the Metrograph, the Nitehawk (which will soon open another location), and the iPic chain, and is scheduled to add several more exciting venues 2017. With that exciting news in mind, we’ve put forward the following question to our panel of critics: What is the best movie theater that you have ever been to, and what made it so special?

The Castro Theater in San Francisco is obviously the best. See anything there and you’ll know why. »

Ditched Indiana Jones ideas that might appear in Indy 5

10 October 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Stuart Wilson Oct 12, 2016

Lots of ideas for the Indiana Jones films to date haven't yet made it to the screen - so could Indiana Jones 5 use them?

As the July 2019 release date inches closer, we still have no idea what will feature in the fifth Indiana Jones movie, that was confirmed earlier this year. If the earlier sequels are anything to go by though, there's a good chance we'll see some discarded concepts from previously ditched drafts. 

You might think this kind of cobbling together of earlier ideas is what led to the rather messy Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. However, as of Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, we were seeing scenes that Lucas and Spielberg hadn't been able to fit into Raiders Of The Lost Ark. The stopover in Shanghai was originally considered during the Raiders story conferences, as was the climactic mine cart ride. »

'Stranger Things' Season 2: Here's a guide to 1984 in pop culture

1 September 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just in case you've been living in the Upside Down, let me get you up to speed: Stranger Things Season 2 is officially happening. And as revealed by the show's unreasonably-attractive creators the Duffer Brothers, the new episodes will be set a year after the events of the first season, which would place the characters squarely in the latter days of 1984 (Season 1 took place between November and December of 1983). While that's not a whole lot later, it's still enough time for a massive number of pop-culture and consumer products to have been introduced in the interim, from film to TV to music to technology. So what, pray tell, will Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Nancy, Jonathan and Steve (but not Barb, obvs) be using, watching, wearing, reading and listening to in the new season that wouldn't have been available to them in the prior timeline because they didn't exist yet? For those curious »

Great Job, Internet!: Break out the Quack Fu, Howard The Duck turns 30 today

1 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Not every anniversary is a celebration.

It’s been a long, strange trip for Howard The Duck. Created by Steve Gerber in 1973 for Marvel Comics, the anthropomorphic fowl was a source for social satire and various misadventures, even running for president in 1976 (and allegedly receiving thousands of write-in votes). He’s disappeared and reappeared many times in Marvel comics throughout the decades, most recently in a series written by Chip Zdarsky and drawn by Joe Quinones. But in between his various escapades in the panels of Marvel comics, the character has made a brief stop over in Hollywood with 1986’s film, Howard The Duck, which was released 30 years ago today.

The film was directed by William Huyck, who also cowrote with Gloria Katz, a man best known for his work writing on American Graffiti and Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and produced by George ...

Ivan Reitman: Why We're Still Talking About 'Ghostbusters' 30 Years Later

6 July 2016 7:23 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Comedy may be the most subjective of genres, but Ivan Reitman knows what the people want. Over the course of his 40-plus-year career as a director, producer, and writer, the Slovakia-born/Canada-bred filmmaker has been a key player in some of Hollywood's most iconic comedies — Animal House, Meatballs, and Stripes among them. But few films have amassed as passionate a following as one particular hit: Ghostbusters.

Originally conceived of as a space-set ensemble piece and starring vehicle for Dan Aykroyd (who wrote it) and John Belushi, the horror-comedy-sci-fi-family-film hybrid eventually »

Lou Levinson Named Fellow of Colorist Society International

16 June 2016 6:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Prominent colorist Lou Levinson, who has worked with the world’s top film directors and cinematographers, has been named a fellow of the Colorist Society International (CSI).

Over his long career Levinson has held senior positions at such companies as McA, Technicolor, and, currently, Apple. He has collaborated with Steven Speilberg and his go-to Dp Janusz Kaminski, and has helped craft the look of such films as “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” “Empire of the Sun,” “Batman,” and “Batman Returns.”

“The colorist is a person whose primary responsibility is to help creative authors of visual storytelling in all its forms further that storytelling with the ‘look,’” Levinson said. “This means dealing with color, density, texture, composition, and motion issues as prime involvement. Helping the industry recognize the value of the colorist is why I support CSI’s mission statement.”

‘Star Wars’ Producer Robert Watts Unveils New Films

3 June 2016 7:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British producer Robert Watts, who worked on the “Star Wars” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” trilogies, is developing a pair of movies, Variety has learned exclusively.

Watts is teaming with Italian songwriter Mauro Repetto and French writer Typhanie Soulat on the live-action/animated romantic comedy “Miranda” and psychological thriller “5, 6, 7, 8.” Real Big Hits is the exclusive worldwide sales and distribution agent.

“Miranda” centers on an unborn baby who — with the help of angels — battles witches to ensure that her future parents find each other, fall in love and bring her to life. The film blends traditional animation, computer animation and live action. Repetto, founder of the pop group 883, is writing the script with Soulat. The duo is also writing the soundtrack.

“5, 6, 7, 8” centers on a sociable marketing executive who’s leading a double life as a kidnapper of young women to create a human keyboard that will perform the titular song with a dance routine. »

15 years ago today: Trekkies said goodbye to ‘Star Trek: Voyager’

23 May 2016 10:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

15 years ago today, Star Trek: Voyager concluded its run on UPN. The series had launched the network (which has since merged with The WB to become The CW) with a two-hour pilot episode in 1995, while Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was still airing new episodes in syndication. It was the first Star Trek series to feature a female commanding officer in the lead role, with Kate Mulgrew playing Captain Kathryn Janeway before she went on to get TV attention again for Orange Is the New Black. Mulgrew reprised her role as Janeway in the 2002 feature film Star Trek: Nemesis. Voyager never garnered the adoration that fans had for the original series and The Next Generation, but it lasted for seven seasons on Upn from 1995 to 2001. Other notable May 23 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: The Asphalt Jungle, one of Marilyn Monroe’s earliest films, opened in theaters. • 1964: Ella Fitzgerald »

How much should movie critics know about movies?

17 April 2016 2:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Should there be a 'ground zero' of knowledge for movie criticism? And what makes a critic effective at their job?

When I sat down to watch It Follows for the first time at the start of last year, I had no idea what I was getting. I'm increasingly an avoider of trailers, and try as much as possible to see films cold. It doesn't always work, but in the case of It Follows, it very much did.

As I’ve written before, the film had a very primal effect on me, in that it had me backing further and further into my seat, genuinely unnerved and more than a little scared by what was happening on screen. I hadn't felt like that watching a film for a long time, and my eventual write-up reflected that. Aside from the subtexts of the movie, which I, in truth, only came to later, »

Harrison Ford Indiana Jones 5: The actor talks about reuniting with Steven Spielberg for a fifth time.

Harrison Ford is all set to return to his most beloved role in a couple of years time, perhaps for the last time. In 2019, a Harrison Ford Indiana Jones 5 movie will come to our screens with the actor reprising his role and legendary Steven Spielberg will also return to direct. Now, the film is still obviously a way off, but Ford has already been talking about returning to the screen as the legendary archaeologist.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel’s TV chat show, Ford revealed why he was returning:

“The opportunity to work with Steven again on this character which has brought pleasure to so many”, he said. “Not to mention me. It’s fun, it’s great fun to play this character. It’s great fun to work with Steven, I »

Yesterday, Disney announced the return of "Indiana Jones" with star Harrison Ford and director Steven Spielberg for a fifth film to be released in 2019. After three wildly successful films in the 1980s ("Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"), the franchise returned in 2008 with "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," but received mixed reactions from critics and audiences. -Break- So we asked our forum posters what they want to see in the new film.

Indiana Jones 5: thoughts, expectations and what we know

15 March 2016 10:36 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




It's definite: Indiana Jones is returning to our screens in 2019. But Disney's announcements leaves a lot of questions behind...

This article contains spoilers for Star Wars - The Force Awakens and Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull

Who knew that was coming? You might have been wondering Disney would do with Lucasfilm's other big franchise since it acquired the rights from Paramount in 2013, but yesterday saw the unexpected announcement that 19th July 2019 will see Steven Spielberg direct Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones for the fifth time, a whole 11 years after the late, lamented fourth instalment, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

The announcement has come relatively quickly on the heels of Star Wars - The Force Awakens, in which Ford was top-billed as Han Solo. The overwhelming success and, more importantly, good reception for that film will probably have been »
