10 Most Ridiculous Movie Death Scenes

22 August 2014 1:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Ahhh, the sublime death scene: the director’s secret weapon and the jobbing actor’s Holy Grail. The perfect death, judged carefully, is a stunningly powerful grace note to some of the greatest, most truly Oscar-baiting scenes in movie history.

Who can forget Nick in The Deer Hunter, Christopher Walken’s brilliantly empty smile as he says, “one shot” at the climax of his final game of Russian Roulette? John Coffey in The Green Mile, simply asking Tom Hanks not to place the hood over his head as they strap him into the electric chair? Atreyu in The Neverending Story, begging his beloved horse Artax not to drown in the Swamps Of Sadness? Oh, god… Artax…

These are not that kind of death scene. Whether it’s deliberate, for a hilariously memorable moment in a comedy; or completely unintentional, a moment of poor judgement in a good movie »

Icons of Fright’s Writing Mixtape, Part Four: Josh Soriano

21 August 2014 10:13 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I rarely get alone time in my current living situation, which can sometimes make it difficult to get into the proper head space for writing. As an artist, I’m already heavily critical of what I’m working on, so it’s helpful to be able to release some anxiety though music. Besides inducing a creative break, music has the power to be therapeutic. So needless to say, I have a large catalog that gets me through both the ups and downs. When I’m trying to make sense of the insanity that is my brain, it’s the missing link. The following are ten songs that serve as a score to my thoughts and struggles, which eventually fuel my creativity. -Josh

 

 

​1.) Angelo Badalamenti – “​L’Anniversaire d’Irwin“ Badalamenti is best known for scoring Twin Peaks, and while the theme from David Lynch’s landmark television show is another I love writing to, »

Wolfgang Peterson Developing Ghost Brigades for SyFy

7 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The SyFy Channel has announced that director Wolfgang Peterson (Das Boot, The Neverending Story, Troy, Air Force One) and Scott Stuber (Safe HouseTed) are set to develop a series based on the John Scalzi book The Ghost Brigades, which is part of the Hugo Award nominated Old Man's War universe book series.

The story follows John Perry, "who at 75, enlists into the Colonial Defense Force to fight a centuries-long war for man's expansion into the cosmos. Technology allows experiences and consciousness to be transplanted into younger bodies that are outfitted to endure the harsher rigors of war in space. However, soon after John arrives, he finds himself involved with a mysterious woman, and at the same time, at the center of an unraveling conspiracy involving an elite fighting force known as The Ghost Brigades."

The pilot episode will be written by Jake Thornton and Ben Lustig, who are both »

Readers' Picks: 12 Essential Movies Kids Must Experience Before Turning 13

3 July 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Last week, EW published The 55 Essential Movies Kids Must Experience (Before Turning 13). Predictably, given that we published a post on the Internet whose headline contained a concrete number and the word “essential,” we got some impassioned feedback from readers—many of whom were eager to suggest additional great movies kids should see that we’d left out.

As we noted last week, “This isn’t a list of the 55 ‘best’ kids movies, nor a compendium of hidden gems. Rather, it’s a survival-guide syllabus of films that we all need to know to be able to speak the same pop-cultural language. »

The Definitive War Movies: 10-1

2 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here we are, at the top of the mountain. We’ve had plenty from every war imaginable, some supportive of war efforts, some not. But the more interesting war films really focus on the people; the internal struggles those men and women have about what they are doing. Whether made in America, Germany, the United Kingdom, or anywhere else, war is not just a battle between good and evil. It’s a life and death struggle between opposing sides that may not be that different. The movies at the top of this list may be subtle or straightforward, but each of them is a clear snapshot that lets audiences see what it means to fight, so they don’t have to.

10. Paths of Glory (1957)

Directed by: Stanley Kurbick

Conflict: World War I

Before Stanley Kubrick grabbed the rights, the source material for Paths of Glory had a long history. The novel, »

Blu-ray Review: “The Final Terror”

26 June 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

The Final Terror

Release Date: 7/1/14 on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack

Written By: Jon George, Neill D. Hicks, and Ronald Shusett

Directed By: Andrew Davis

Starring: Adrian Zmed, Ernest Harden Jr., Lewis Smith, Rachel Ward, Daryl Hannah, Akosua Busia, Joe Pantoliano, Mark Metcalf

Review by Daniel Xiii.

Does The Final Terror Have the Goods Out in the Woods?

 

Hey creeps, I just sat down with Scream Factory’s Blu-ray of The Final Terror, and I feel like it’s my civic duty to get something out in the open right from the start. Much like the lies propagated by The Neverending Story (which did indeed end after a paltry 90 minutes!) before it, The Final Terror is not what the title proclaims. I mean, there have been like hundreds of horror films made after this movie came out (in 1983)—some even have “terror” in the title!

Well, I guess the best thing »

Summer Movies Flashback 1984: Indiana Jones, Gremlins and Ghostbusters

2 June 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In honor of the 2014 summer movie season, Team HitFix will be delivering a mini-series of articles flashing back to key summers from years past. There will be one each month, diving into the marquee events of the era, their impact on the writer and their implications on today's multiplex culture. We continue today with a look back at the summer of 1984. I turned 14 on May 26, 1984, just as the summer movie season was getting started. These days, the summer movie season seems to begin in mid-March, and I think it's because studios want real estate that they can own. And it feels like the appetite for event films is something the audience has year-round now, so if you're able to make something that excites the audience, why not find a place for it where it's not going head to head with all the other giant event films of the year? For the purposes of this piece, »

Ten (No Eleven) Movies I Saw as a Child That Still Hold Up Today

2 June 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

At the end of my review of Maleficent I wrote: "Yes, movies such as this might be made for a young audience that will find something to enjoy in the magical CG flittering around, but once that audience grows up will they honestly turn to something like this for warm childhood memoriesc Dear God I hope not." It's a statement that has stuck with me since I wrote it. I was primarily thinking of how classic Disney animated films, such as Sleeping Beauty, hold up no matter how old you are. The more I thought about it, though, I began to wonder if I was simply being too precious when it comes to those classic animated movies and started to ask myself if there were any live action films I saw as a child, films that targeted kids and yet managed to appeal to adults then and maintain their value »

'The Vampire Diaries': Michael Malarkey on Enzo sticking around, the return of a few familiar faces, more death

1 May 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The Vampire Diaries and death are sort of like two peas in a pod. But last week, viewers witnessed a death unlike any they’d seen before when Damon’s longtime pal, Enzo, decided to essentially frame Stefan for his suicide, if only to ruin the Salvatore brothers’ relationship. But with the other side crumbling, Enzo isn’t exactly gone from Mystic Falls.

For now, Enzo will be sticking around as a very pissed off ghostly presence, ready to enact his revenge on Stefan, Damon, and pretty much everyone. “I kind of view Enzo as a little bit of an anarchist, »

'Robot Chicken' Creators Talk 'Star Wars,' Quentin Tarantino, and 'Big Trouble in Little China' at Hollywood Screening

23 April 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When asked to choose a film as part of the Modern School of Film's Film Masters screening and discussion series, "Robot Chicken" co-creator Matthew Senreich didn't take long to choose. "I think I walked into Eric's [Towner] office, and I was like, 'We gotta pick a movie. How about "Big Trouble in Little China?"' And he threw out the other two, and I was like, 'Let's go with "Big Trouble in Little China."' The "other two" to which Senreich was referring were "The Last Starfighter" and "The NeverEnding Story," but those were quickly dismissed in favor of the 1986 fantasy action flick starring Kurt Russell. After screening to a nearly packed house at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood, CA, Senreich, writer Zeb Wells, co-founder of Stoopid Buddy Studios Eric Towner, and co-head writer Doug Goldstein took part in a lengthy question and answer session regarding the film they just watched »

This Mesmerizing Gif Of Emma Watson Will Forever Change You

10 April 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are some images that burn into your retinas, never to be unseen. The death of Artax in 'The Neverending Story,' the realization your parents weren't wrestling when you busted in on them at the age of five,  that creepy episode of 'The X-Files' with the inbred family keeping their mom under the bed for reproduction purposes.  But they all pale in comparison to this. If I had to see, then you have to see it. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! No. Nope. Why? Why does this exist? What are we looking at? Who would unleash this terror onto an unsuspecting populace? What did Emma Watson and Sofia Vergara do to deserve this? I decided to find out. This Gif popped up yesterday on the photo-sharing site Imgur and quickly spread like wildfire because it is literally the visual equivalent of forcing a friend to smell sour milk while saying "Smell how bad this is! »

4 Other Songs That Should Have Been Disqualified By The Oscars

3 February 2014 5:42 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The Motion Picture Academy is embroiled in a minor dustup involving the disqualification of one of the five nominees for Best Original Song because of some shady campaigning. The songwriter of “Alone, Yet Not Alone” is fighting back, and most aggravatingly, “Godless Hollywood” is being blamed for unfairly picking on this plucky underdog of a nominee, which is the theme song to an obscure Christian film that has only played in a few theaters. Why, it’s a regular “David vs. Goliath!”

It doesn’t help the songwriter’s case that the song is terrible, and sounds like an outtake from the Sandi Patti box set.

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time The Academy nominated terrible songs and left out more deserving fare. In fact, here are a few Best Original Song nominees from the past that should have been disqualified instantly. Not for any impropriety … but because they suck. »

Throwback Thursday: What was your favorite snow day movie as a kid? -- Video

23 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In my childhood, snow days meant putting on a shirt, a sweatshirt, some hand-me-down snow overalls, a jacket, a scarf, gloves, a hat, two pairs of socks, and boots before heading outside and enjoying a day of freedom. After snow ball fights and a potential injury or two, my brother and I would head back inside, leaving a puddle at the front door where our boots and overalls now sat on the floor. Then, there was hot chocolate, some food, and one round of clothes in the dryer before we were back out in the cold.
