Secret Cinema: Back to the Future, Review

8 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Dogged by cancellations, Secret Cinema has a lot to prove with its production of Back to the Future. Michael Rosser went back to 1955 to find out if it was worth the wait.

The organisers behind Secret Cinema must have thought at some point last week: “If only we had a time machine.”

After promising its most ambitious production to date with a show built around Back to the Future, the London-based event cinema organisation had to pull the plug at the last minute, disappointing thousands of ticket holders. No explanation was given, except that the production had not been able to meet technical requirements to satisfy local authorities.

A further three productions were cancelled and Secret Cinema’s most high profile production ever – with 42,000 tickets sold in just four hours, and around 80,000 overall – had become its most infamous.

So with the opening pushed to last night (July 31), there was a lot to prove. And proven »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Director James Gunn Looks Forward-- and Back

14 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Guardians of the Galaxy" is the most irreverent Marvel departure so far, and, thanks to comedy writer-director James Gunn ("Slither," "Super"), we're reminded that sci-fi can be fun. What's old is new again. But even though it wasn't his intention to give us a nostalgia trip while creating his own colorful galaxy of rogues and villains, it's an occupational hazard of turning archetypes on their head. (Toh! review and roundup here.) "When they first told me about 'Guardians of the Galaxy,'  I wasn't sure about it," Gunn insists. "I'm a big Marvel comics fan but I didn't see this as a movie. But for some reason, driving home from a meeting with the Marvel guys, it suddenly occurred to me that this was the space epic I've always wanted to make... The movies that influenced this movie the most were the movies that I saw as a kid: »

Looking back at Through The Dragon’s Eye

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Follow us through the mural on a trip to Pelamar, to look back at BBC Look And Read fantasy adventure, Through The Dragon’s Eye…

If you attended a UK primary school in the last forty years, then the sight of two white, animated eyes on a black screen turning into the heart of the word ‘Look’ is likely to trigger all sorts of pink custard and plimsoll memories. Those moving eyes signalled the start of an adventure (albeit one delivered in twenty minute instalments designed to teach you about literacy, apostrophe usage and the joys of magic, magic E).

The first Look And Read television programme, Bob And Carol Look For Treasure was broadcast in 1967, a ten-part story about two children’s clue-filled search for swag and eventual capture of a thief. Each episode was divided in two by an educational section, the material for which - puzzles, songs and reading challenges, »

Raiders Of The Lost Ark is most rewatched film

16 hours ago | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones

How often do you rewatch films? New research carried out for the Sky Store has found that one in four people in the UK watch some films up to ten times, often because they've forgotten the plot or are struggling to unravel a complex story. The most popular films for watching again are as follows:-

Raiders Of The Lost Ark Star Wars Back To The Future Home Alone E.T. Jaws Jurassic Park Independence Day Titanic Alien

The survey found that the average person watched at least one film 29 times in their lifetime, though it's not clear if this indicates love for a particular film or simply relates to how often it's on television. »

Back To The Future Flux Capacitor Dual Usb Car Charger

17 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Roads? Where we’re going we… well, we still need roads. Sorry guys. I know it doesn’t have the same ring to it, but this is just a Usb car charger. The 2.1 Amps this Back to the Future-themed charger pumps out may be a far cry from 1.21 gigawatts, but hey! It comes with two Usb ports so you can charge a couple devices at the same time. And if you think a lack of plutonium is gonna stop people from being tempted to take their vehicles up to 88mph while they have this plugged in, you’re wrong. Who would be that immature you ask? Answer: Everyone.

The product is available for $24.99 at ThinkGeek. You’ll have to forgive the crudeness of this model though, it doesn’t look like they had time to put the stickers on it or build it to scale.

Thanks to OhGizmo! »

The same thing happened the following day, informing thousands more that the show had been called off with only a few hours to spare. Shortly after, Secret »

Fantasia 2014: ‘The Infinite Man’ is a funny and heartfelt time travel tale

27 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Infinite Man

Written and directed by Hugh Sullivan

Australia, 2014

There’s something painful about Dean. Cute, yes, by all means. Scruffy, also, as well as nerdy, Steve-Urkellian, and sweet — his run alone garners a continual snicker. But mostly there’s something painful about Dean, who is trying like hell to make things right with Lana.

More precisely, that cutely painful thing is a kind of teenage conviction so many shake before they move on to adulthood. It’s a familiar story, one that has the audience both cringing and laughing with and at him. Everyone’s tried really hard to undo some mistake at some unfortunate juncture. It’s an appallingly familiar sight to behold. Especially when, like many before him, he’s rolling on faith that the one that got away is the one. And while most of us eventually learn to accept an ending and move on, »

‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2′ Red Band Trailer: Everything’s Like ‘The Terminator’

25 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Nobody will ever have the balls to remake Back to the Future or The Terminator. They are the untouchable time travel classics. And without them we couldn’t have a movie like Hot Tub Time Machine, which paid it all back in homage in ways that wouldn’t make a lot of sense for people unfamiliar with those earlier cultural staples (and who’d just be confused now if there were multiples of them). Not a whole lot about the 2010 comedy mirrors Bttf, yet the ending has a similar, albeit more extreme, case of the present being altered for the better thanks to changes made via a trip to the past. The movie concludes with a brilliant joke: Rob Corddry‘s character has used his knowledge of the future (present) to invent Google before Google (he calls it “Lou-gle”). Sorry to spoil that for anyone who hasn’t seen the first Httm already, but »

Rufus Hound invites Secret Cinema ticketholders to Scoundrels

25 July 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rufus Hound has offered free entry to West End musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels for people with tickets to tonight's cancelled Secret Cinema presents Back to the Future screening.

On his blog, the comedian and actor wrote an open letter titled "Secret Cinema folk - some good news" to disappointed ticketholders for the movie performance, reproduced in full below:

Hello.

I'm writing this in a real hurry, so sorry if it's a bit… y'know… rubbish, but, I just found out Secret Cinema had to cancel tonight.

That sucks. I know everyone is cross with them, but let's assume they tried their best and something just went wrong. It totally sucks. I have tickets for Sunday night and am so stoked about it, so I can imagine how annoying and frustrating it'll be if it gets cancelled.

Anyway, I just got off the phone from the people who are running Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, »

Secret Cinema cancels Bttf again

Event cinema organiser forced to cancel second consecutive night.

Secret Cinema, the immersive cinema event company, has cancelled the second consecutive night of its latest production, Back To The Future.

Its opening night was canned just a few hours before the show was set to begin in east London yesterday evening, disappointing around 3,500 ticketholders - each having paid £53.50. A preview night on Wednesday had also failed to go ahead.

As seemingly appropriate lightning storms raged over London, Secret Cinema has again been forced to pull the plug on its event, which is due to run over 24 nights until August 31.

In a fresh statement, just two hours before the production was set to begin, the organisation said: “Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel tonight’s performance.

“Secret Cinema has been running safe arts events for 10 years and on this occasion we have come across a number of difficult issues. As you can »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 red band trailer

24 July 2014 11:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While it’s not exactly Terminator or Back to the Future, Hot Tub Time Machine struck a chord with fans of time travels and 1980′s style shenanigans. The film has achieved cult status which means MGM and Paramount are interested in seeing if they can wring any more cash out of the concept. John Cusak is gone, but Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, and Rob Corddry are back. A red band trailer has been released for the film which shows slight signs of potential.

“Nick (Craig Robinson) and Jacob (Clark Duke) use the time traveling hot tub to try and get back to the past after Lou (Rob Corddry) gets in trouble, but they inadvertently end up ten years in the future, which they must alter if they want to save their present-day environment.”

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 comes out this Christmas. The perfect family film for the Holiday season. »

Guardians of the Galaxy review: Marvel goes cosmic with Chris Pratt

24 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Gunn; Screenwriters: James Gunn, Nicole Perlman; Starring: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Josh Brolin, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, John C Reilly, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou; Running time: 121 mins; Certificate: 12A

The fact that Guardians of the Galaxy contains a gag about semen (thanks to a Jackson Pollock reference) tells you all you need to know about this latest blockbuster off the Marvel production line. This is not the superhero movie you were expecting; dark and brooding internal angst gets traded in for a breezy cosmic adventure and crackling comedy quips. Marvel Studios has never been one to embrace the idiosyncratic or eccentric, but director James Gunn brings a fresh point of view to a genre that's fast becoming to sag with predictability.

Gunn's last film Super was a sly deconstruction of comic book storytelling, yet Guardians is a »
