Review: Aliens: 30th Anniversary Edition

16 September 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The 1980s was perhaps the first decade where sequels were crowding the theater screens and most were justifiably vilified by critics and fans alike for being little more than a retread of the original. That changed when director James Cameron, fresh off a little indie production The Terminator, was tasked with a sequel to 1979’s surprise hit, Alien.

The Hollywood executive merry-go-round delayed the sequel by several years, although that allowed Cameron to hone his ideas with producer/wife Gale Anne Hurd. He envisioned a story where the humans were akin to the Americans during Viet Nam, strangers seriously outnumbered in a strange land. After insisting the film star Sigourney Weaver, who was in a contract dispute with 20th Century-Fox, all the pieces came together.

When the movie opened in 1986, it set a new higher standard for what a sequel should be, which was expanding upon the characters and universe seen in the first film. »

Jackie Earle Haley to play villain in Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel

15 September 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Jackie Earle Haley is the latest actor to join the cast of Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel, as The Hollywood Reporter claims that he has signed on to play a “monstrous cyborg” villain. The report also states that a fair amount of CG and greenscreen will be required to bring the Preacher actor’s role to life.

As of now, the rest of the film’s cast includes Django Unchained and The Legend of Tarzan actor Christoph Waltz, who came on board the project a few weeks ago, and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials actress Rosa Salazar, who will portray the title character, Alita.

Alita: Battle Angel is based on the similarly titled manga series Battle Angel Alita, which is set in the 26th century and centers around an amnesiac cyborg (Salazar) discovered by a cybernetics doctor in a junkyard. After remembering that she is skilled »

10 Actors Who Returned To Famous Roles After A Very Long Time

15 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once upon a time, it was common practice for an actor to play a character in a movie just the once before moving on to other projects. However, in this new world we find ourselves in, where cinematic universes, sequels, reboots (even rebootquels) rule the box office, the stars of today are being asked to reappear in the same roles over and over again. Many for the first time in years. Decades, even.

Last year, for instance, Arnold Schwarzenegger returned to his most famous role as the unstoppable killing machine (now a goofy father figure) in Terminator: Genisys for the first time in 12 years. Going back a little further, Leonard Nimoy turned up in 2009’s Star Trek reboot to pass the torch to the new guys, after a break from the franchise that had lasted 19 years.

As crazy as both of those examples may seem, the following 10 actors waited »

Sigourney Weaver and James Cameron Look Back at Aliens on Its 30th Anniversary

Three decades before strong, competent and powerful female action heroes like Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, Black Widow in The Avengers and Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally became fixtures in film, there was Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in Aliens. The actress debuted Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley in director Ridley Scott's moody 1979 sci-fi/horror masterwork Alien, deftly eluding a monstrous, murderous and nearly indestructible extraterrestrial life form. But it wasn't until that film's long-gestating sequel Aliens arrived in 1986, written and directed by future action auteur James Cameron, that Ripley truly emerged as an ass-kicking action heroine »

A History Of Violence: The Terminator makes Arnold a star—and changes action cinema forever

8 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

With A History Of Violence, Tom Breihan picks the most important action movie of every year, starting with the genre’s birth and moving right up to whatever Vin Diesel’s doing this very minute.

The Terminator (1984)

The 37-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger was a human special effect. His physique was obviously just this side of inhuman, but it wasn’t just that. His face was hard and planar, all flat surfaces and sharp angles. He had a way of mangling English words, but his voice was authoritative and mysterious, and it seemed perfectly plausible that the Austrian accent could’ve been the result of an underdeveloped speech module. In The Terminator, James Cameron filmed him at night, under blue lights, with a clammy sheen on his skin. He looked terrifying. He did not look the way people are supposed to look.

Cameron has talked about the plot hole that he ...

The 27 greatest stop motion movies of all time

Sean Wilson Sep 16, 2016

With Kubo & The Two Strings now playing, we salute some of our favourite stop motion animated movies...

With Laika's visually sumptuous and breathtaking stop motion masterpiece Kubo And The Two Strings dazzling audiences throughout the country, what better time to celebrate this singular and remarkable art form?

The effect is created when an on-screen character or object is carefully manipulated one frame at a time, leading to an illusion of movement during playback - and such fiendishly intricate work, which takes years of dedication, deserves to be honoured. Here are the greatest examples of stop motion movie mastery.

The Humpty Dumpty Circus (1898)

What defines the elusive appeal of stop motion? Surely a great deal of it is down to the blend of the recognisable and the uncanny: an simulation of recognisably human movement that still has a touch of the fantastical about it. These contradictions were put »

Video Game Review – Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

3 September 2016 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kris Wall reviews Deus Ex: Mankind Divided…

Many might call me a heathen but I wasn’t a fan of the Deus Ex series when it began, while the impact the original Deus Ex had on the future of action RPG’s and any game that would involve player choice cannot be argued, the game itself just didn’t resonate with me, and I avoided the sequel Invisible War altogether. Then 2011’s Human Revolution arrived and everything changed, I was immediately swept up in Adam Jensen’s world, sinking an unfathomable amount of hours into unraveling conspiracies, experimenting with different augmentation loadouts for exploring, musing over the themes of what it means to be human, and just completely immersing myself into one of the most incredible games of the last generation . It went on to be my favourite game of that year, one of my top 3 of the last generation »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Son Recreates Iconic Terminator 2 Scene

2 September 2016 4:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of James Cameron's iconic classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day starring Arnold Schwarzengger, which is still widely beloved. Earlier this week, filmmaker Ben Hess released a new video where he remade the iconic bar scene, with none other than Arnold Schwarzengger's own son, 18-year-old Joseph Baena. The video has already gone viral, with over 268,000 views since the video was launched on Wednesday.

As far as we know, this YouTube video could feature Joseph Baena's first ever acting performance. The 18-year-old is majoring in business at Pepperdine University, but perhaps he has caught the acting bug. As you can see in this video, he does bear a striking resemblance to Arnold Schwarzenegger. This scene features Baena as the T-800, as he's about to ride off on someone's motorcycle, when someone tries to stop him with a shotgun.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Son Joseph Baena Re-Creates Iconic ‘Terminator 2’ Scene (Video)

1 September 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The world didn’t even know that Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s son Joseph Baena existed until 2011, when news broke of the bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-California-governor’s affair with former housekeeper Mildred Baena, which ultimately broke up Schwarzenegger’s 25-year marriage to Maria Shriver. Now 18, Joseph Baena is the spitting image of his famous father — right down to the chiseled jaw, rock-hard muscles and piercing gaze. It appears that he also inherited Arnie’s acting ambitions, as Baena has now re-created one of Schwarzenegger’s most iconic scenes from “Terminator 2” in a YouTube video directed by his friend, aspiring filmmaker Ben Hess.

The Duffer Brothers talk Stranger Things season 2

Yesterday Netflix announced that it has officially renewed Stranger Things for a second season, and creators Ross and Matt Duffer – a.k.a. the Duffer Brothers – have been chatting to Entertainment Weekly, offering up a few details about what we can expect when we return to Hawkins, Indiana next year.

“I don’t think we ever thought anthology,” states Ross Duffer, revealing that the second season will take place in 1984. “I think we talked like a larger time jump where the kids are older now and it’s a different decade. That’s something we batted around from the very beginning. But for us, there’s still more story here [in the 1980s], there’s still things that are unresolved.”

“I know movie sequels get a lot of shit, but the ones we look up to aspire to pivot and do something different,” adds Matt. “There’s Temple of Doom, Aliens, Terminator 2. I »
