Pete’s Dragon (2016)

3 December 2016 10:11 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Does anybody still care about great movies for small children? If so, here's a good one. A big, furry green dragon named Elliot is the kind of playmate every lonely kid wants.

From 'Babadook' to 'Raw': The Rise of the Modern Female Horror Filmmaker

26 October 2016 12:42 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Female horror fans are hardly unicorns. Quite the opposite – we go to the movies to get scared, often in greater numbers than men. Female horror directors aren't mythical beings either, even though it can sometimes feel this way. But in fact, the last few years have seen an exciting wave of horror films helmed by women who haven't merely joined the rank-and-file as encouraging statistics. Instead, movies like Jennifer Kent's The Babadook or Karyn Kusama's The Invitation have helped elevate the genre by opening it up to stories that unsettle audiences in new, »

Emily Blunt on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

16 October 2016 6:09 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Before the season started, I thought Saturday Night Live should go all-in on election-centric sketches. With four episodes in a row, NBC clearly wanted to get as many episodes in before November 8th as possible, and rightly so: SNL is a central comedic voice during Presidential elections, and giving them as many opportunities to make an impact made sense both fiscally as well as culturally.

But a metric ton of nastiness has occurred in the short time since the cast and crew of SNL have gone back to work. While »

Was everyone on Ben-Hur 2016 too busy sourcing camel milk to generate new movie ideas?

23 August 2016 10:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

I don’t mind the new version existing but will I have to live out the rest of my life drowning in franchises, reboots and remakes?

Between the ages of 11 and 14, while my classmates were memorising the Fresh Prince theme song and perfecting their Jonathan Taylor Thomas découpage, I had a weird fixation on the 1959 biblical fan-fiction epic Ben-Hur, starring Charlton Heston. My social studies teacher showed it to us during our Ancient Rome unit (I remember her calling Heston “the perfect man” and doing a little sexual shoulder shimmy as if to say “yum yum”). We spent a whole week watching it because, being made in the period before Hollywood figured out how much continuous rowing should go in a movie, Ben-Hur is about three-and-a-half hours long. I was enraptured.

Grandiosity, revenge, homoeroticism, miracles, a cave of horrors, four perfect white horses that know English and live in a »

Film Review: ‘Pete’s Dragon’

27 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The original “Pete's Dragon” is, without a doubt, one of the most eccentric entries in the Disney canon — an almost hallucinatory live-action/animation hybrid, crammed wall-to-wall with singing, about a 9-year-old orphan and his magical pink-and-green sidekick, whom practically nobody else can see. One had to be either Pete’s age or a puff-draggin’ enthusiast to appreciate the trippy film when it came out, and time has only rendered the movie that much weirder — which makes it a far better candidate for a Mouse House remake than many of the studio’s more universally beloved classics.

Reimagined nearly four decades later, Disney’s in-name-only “Pete’s Dragon” reboot trades the earlier version’s goofy cartoony sensibility for a sort of stylized realism, one in which everything looks a bit too good to be true (including the stunning Weta Digital-animated dragon himself), and yet the story is geared in »

39 years ago today: Comic-Con welcomed stormtroopers to the nerd Mecca for the first time

20 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today, thousands upon thousands of fanboys and fangirls will flock toward Southern California as San Diego Comic-Con kicks off. 39 years ago today, the then-much smaller convention opened for a significant year: The first after the release of Star Wars. Though the con was still focused on comic books at the time and was contained within Sd’s El Cortez Hotel, the 1977 event did feature a “Making of Star Wars” panel. A year prior, Lucasfilm had drummed up a bit of anticipation for the movie at Comic-Con with Mark Hamill in attendance. Other notable July 20 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: The Men, Marlon Brando’s first film, premiered in New York. • 1965: Bob Dylan’s single “Like a Rolling Stone” was released. • 1969: Broadcast on live TV to a worldwide audience, Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, proclaiming the event “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. »

Can fantasy films escape Lord Of The Rings' shadow?

21 June 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The world of J.R.R. Tolkien, brought to the screen by Peter Jackson, continues to cast a shadow over fantasy cinema...

One realm to rule them all. One realm to find them, one realm to bring them all and in the darkness bind them, in the land of Middle-earth where the shadows lie.

Now, far be it from me to ever describe Middle-earth as a dark shadow over anything, but for everyone else trying to make a mega-hit fantasy film, the very thought of competing with Peter Jackson’s adaptations of The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit must seem the equivalent of toppling literal evil on Earth.

It seems that any time a big-budget fantasy flick is released, they get sneered at as generic, lacking the richness of detail or story compared to Lord Of The Rings.

But if this sounds like I’m suggesting there »

Blu-ray Review – Enemy Mine (1985)

20 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Enemy Mine, 1985.

Directed by Wolfgang Petersen.

Starring Dennis Quaid, Louis Gosset Jr., Richard Marcus, Carolyn McCormick and Brion James.

Synopsis:

The future. Humanity fight for distant star systems against an alien race called the Drac. When human pilot Davidge crash-lands on a hostile, barren alien world, he must forge an unlikely alliance with Jeriba, a Drac pilot who crashed nearby, in order to survive…

You may not have heard of Enemy Mine, despite the involvement of a fair few luminaries in various departments. That’s because it sank like a stone in the winter of 1985 at the box office, following a misjudged marketing campaign, production difficulties that saw Wolfgang Petersen replace original director Richard Loncraine and start again, even after millions had been spent on shooting, and no doubt the simple fact it was lacking some major tentpole stars in an age where movies were opened by the men (usually »

When I saw the Spotify ad with all grown up Atreyu flying around on Falcor listening to Limahl’s theme song to The Neverending Story, I tweeted about it. This caught the attention of Tami Stronach, who when she was 11 played the Childlike Empress in the film. She’s been engaging fans with Falcor drawing contests […]

Popular Kids' Movies You (Probably) Didn't Know Were Based on Not-So-Kid-Friendly Books

13 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Admit it -- somewhere along the way, a kids' movie gave you a grown-up fright, whether from the wolfish Gmork in "The Neverending Story" or a glammed-out David Bowie and his band of baby-stealing Muppets in "Labyrinth." That's because underneath a fuzzy layer of singalongs and talking animals, there's usually a layer of harsh reality. It's a sweet way for kids to learn not-so-sweet lessons, kind of like giving them bubble gum-flavored cough syrup.

But the rabbit hole goes deeper. Some of our biggest and brightest children's stories -- movies, that is -- actually tell tales that started out in the adult realm. And if you've ever had a job with a manager, had to learn what a tax write-off is, or one day found yourself reading the Nutrition Facts on your food , you know the adult realm is a very, very scary place. Here are the movies that go there, »

Tomorrowland: or The Curse of the Standalone Blockbuster

5 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson re-evaluates the unfairly maligned Disney movie, and why its failure is an unfortunate reflection of the modern-day cinema industry…

Just under a year ago, I appeared to be one of approximately five people on the planet who was more than a little dismayed and disheartened at the critical roasting afforded to Disney epic Tomorrowland. Subtitled A World Beyond in the UK and other territories, the movie is directed by The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Mission: Impossible and Ratatouille supremo Brad Bird, being the story of young girl Casey (Britt Robertson) who stumbles across the existence of a wondrous land existing beyond known time and space.

Tracking down mysterious, grumpy and reclusive former boy genius Frank Walker (George Clooney), Casey discovers that Tomorrowland was actually the creation of the world’s greatest scientific minds, an embodiment of everything than an optimistic future can offer. However, it’s under imminent threat of collapse, »

Limahl’s Video for The Neverending Story Completely Ruins the Song

20 March 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’m a little nostalgic this week because The Neverending Story was on television.  Those of you who have seen it know that it’s rarely on cable so when you catch it, it’s a precious moment in your life.  And you can’t tell me you’re head’s not bopping when Limahls’ Neverending Story track starts playing. But there’s something very sad about all of this.  When you actually see the video for this song, you’re going to be extremely disappointed. Before I saw this video, I could swear the person singing the theme song to The Neverending Story was a woman. The

Whatever Happened to the Cast of The Neverending Story?

13 February 2016 7:59 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When it comes to children’s movies, I have a hard time deciding which is my favorite; it’s either The Dark Crystal or The Neverending Story.  Both movies are pretty dark considering their target demographics, and I can remember certain aspects of each that used to scare me.  And both movies involved some incredible work by puppeteers and voice actors, helping to bring to life the wide array of fictional creatures.  Unlike The Dark Crystal, however, The Neverending Story featured live human actors that were, in my opinion, perfectly cast for their roles.  Keep reading to find out what happened to

Blu-ray Review: Troll / Troll 2 Double Feature

21 January 2016 7:16 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In the wake of the success of Joe Dante’s classic Gremlins in the mid-’80s, movie theaters were flooded with low-budget horror movies about pint-sized creatures wreaking havoc on unsuspecting humans. No one took better advantage of this phenomenon than Charles Band, who would build a dynasty of films about little monsters first with his Empire Pictures and later with Full Moon Features—everything from Ghoulies to Puppet Master, Demonic Toys to Dolls. One of Empire’s first fantasy horror films about little monsters, 1986’s Troll makes its HD debut on Scream Factory’s Blu-ray alongside its notorious sequel, Troll 2, often considered one of the worst movies ever made.

The original Troll, directed by makeup effects legend John Carl Buechler in his feature debut, tells the story of the Potter family, recent transplants to a San Francisco apartment complex who begin to notice strange goings-on in their building, »
