Radical Arcade-Style Animated Tribute to 1980s Sci-Fi Movies

27 November 2014 12:02 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got a delightful short animated trailer for you to check out today that was made to promote some of our favorite classic 1980s sci-fi films. It was created by Francesco Baiocchi for the European sci-fi cable channel Axn. It was done in the style of a '80s side-scrolling video game, and some of the films that are featured in the promo include Ghostbusters IIThe NeverEnding StoryShort Circuit, and even My Stepmother Is an Alien. The result is pretty radical. 

Remember the '80s? Remember those amazing Arcade video games? As we had to create a weekly stunt to promote different movies from the 80s' we decided to celebrate that fabulous decade using one of its most recognizable look and design.

Neverending Story Fan Remake Concept Art

19 November 2014 2:26 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Neverending Story will always be a nostalgic movie for me. It was one of the earliest fantasy films that I can remember watching. Unlike Krull or Labyrinth, it had a boy as the main character and I was able to imagine myself in this crazy place. 

I rewatched The Neverending Story two years ago, and it's aged badly. So much so that it kind of ruined my joy and memory of it. I don't think I will ever watch it again. It's not a movie I'm going to show my kids because there are so many better fantasy films now (LotR for example).

Something I could get excited about is a remake. Yes, that much hated process of taking an old movie and attempting to make it better or different than the original. Artist Nicolas Francoeur has imagined his own remake of this '80s classic. He's got some »

PopWatch Confessional: What's the scariest thing you saw as a kid (that wasn't supposed to scare you)?

31 October 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Ghosts, ghouls, vampires, demons—they've been frightening kids for centuries, and with good reason. But children's brains are strange, malleable places that can perceive even the most unassuming figures—a cute, helpful Jedi Grand Master, a cuddly elephantine creature, a precocious baby dinosaur—as sinister agents of terror. Which brings us to today's Halloween-inspired PopWatch Confessional: What's the unintentionally scary thing that frightened you most when you were a kid? (Bonus: Reading through is a great way to stealthily learn how old we all are.) Ashley Fetters, online news editor: I was about eight when I saw the original »

Battle Royale - Throwback Thrills: Round 3 Results

24 October 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

From flying monkeys to pink elephants, we’ve picked some of the most memorable throwback thrills for this month’s Battle Royale. We narrowed down the list to thirty-two, but it’s up to you to pick the winner.

We’re down to four. Yes, our semi-finalists for Battle Royale have been chosen.

These are the four scenes you’ve chosen as the scariest, most terrifying, most traumatizing scenes in movies that are (apparently) made for kids:

 

 

So far it’s looks like nothing can beat Other Mother from Coraline. With her perfect hair and cold, plastic stare, she took down a t-rex. Musical heavyweights The Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory also went head-to-head this round, and Wonka’s boat ride scared off the Wicked Witch’s winged monkeys.

Match-ups have been won by a mere handful of votes. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban »

The Definitive Scary Scenes from Non-Horror Films: 50-41

2 October 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In the spirit of October, this list will look at scary scenes, but not from the horror classics directed by Craven or Carpenter or even Hitchcock (I’m excluding him, though I argue most of his work isn’t exactly horror). These are from the films that aren’t really meant to scare you. At least, not at the visceral level that horror films do. These are the fifty definitive moments from non-horror films that still made an impact on the “frightening front.” From shocking to creepy to unsettlingly hair raising, these are moments that will stick in your mind long after watching the films, even if they are part of a very different narrative.

50. Toy Story 3 (2010)

Scene: Monkey Security

Video: http://youtu.be/x6QkcJjx-Vo

The third installment of the one of the greatest movie trilogies of all time is also one of the darkest children’s films ever made. »

Today I've got a great piece of fan art for you to check out created by Paul Ainsworth. It's called "Power of Auryn," and you can pick up a print for yourself right here. This was one of my favorite movies growing up, and it might have been one of the first movies I ever watched that made me cry.

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

1984 Retrospective: Beverly Hills Cop

12 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

1984. The year that even the Olympics went to Hollywood is easily one of the greatest years in film history. 1984 is also the year that this writer was born…well, only just (my birthday is 31st December). This of course means that this is the year that I turn the big 3-0. Whilst having a mini wallow/mid-life breakdown I realised that many iconic movies came out during this year, meaning that they too turn 30.  The year saw the likes of The Terminator, Ghostbusters, Splash, The Karate Kid, Police Academy and Gremlins welcomed into the world and our hearts. Having grown-up alongside many of these films I decided to perform an in-depth look into the films that shaped 1984 to see how they are holding up three decades later.

We are now well into our retrospective series, having previously looked at the likes of Gremlins, Ghostbusters, The Karate Kid, Dune ,Splash and kids classic The Neverending Story. »

10 Fun Facts about The Neverending Story

9 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Neverending Story is a movie that I grew up loving, and I recently realized that I've never really heard any stories about the film's development. Usually when a person spends as much time online as I do, you come across all kinds of interesting facts and trivia about the movies we love, but this isn't one of them. I haven't come across much about this movie, so I thought I'd point out a few fun facts that you maybe haven't heard before. The only bit of trivia I knew about it before I looked up this stuff was the first bit of information below:

During the first Ivory Tower scene when the group of Fantasians are gathered together, if you look very closely you will see characters such as Yoda, Mickey Mouse, Chewbacca, C3PO, The Ewoks, Et and Gumby. Here's a photo pointing them out: The original Auryn »

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

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 »
