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

25 July 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

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 »

10 Movie Characters Who Stood Up To Their Bullies

24 July 2014 3:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Everyone has either experienced bullying or known a bully at some point in their lives. It’s this universal experience that has led to the history of cinema being littered with horrible bullies, from Back to the Future’s bone-headed Biff Tannen to the fast-talking insult machine Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket. These characters make it their mission to belittle and hurt people who they think are below them, sometimes using violence to assert their dominance. Bullies are evil, plain and simple.

Thankfully, filmmakers love to give evil characters their comeuppance in the end. For every horrible cinematic bully, there’s an underdog willing to stand up to them and give them a taste of their own medicine. Sometimes the retribution comes in the form of violence and even murder, but often a triumphant speech of defiance is all it takes to send a movie bully running for the hills. »

Hot Toys has revealed their awesome new Back to the Future 1/6th scale Marty McFly collectible action figure. It's about time they released this! I hope it does well, because it could open the door for figures from films such as The Goonies, Ghostbusters and other classic 1980 films. I need to get myself one of these!

“This is heavy doc.” Back to the Future is a pop culture icon and one of the best time-travel films of all time! It remains to be a highly popular movie even decades after the film is first released! Next year marks the 30th anniversary of this classic film and today Hot Toys is very excited to present the 1/6th scale Collectible Figure of the film’s main character – Marty McFly! 

The movie-accurate Marty McFly Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly in the movie, »

Comic-Con began as a comic book convention. So what better way to get back to its roots than by turning the pages of The Hollywood Reporter into a graphic novel? The "Titans of Comic-Con" mixed-media portfolio— in which Grace Park and Katee Sackhoff were inserted into Star Wars, Chris Hardwick is shown stepping out of Doc Brown's time-traveling DeLorean from Back to the Future, along with a half-dozen other actors posing as iconic sci-fi figures— was a group effort.

Nerd Buy: Hot Toys 1/6th Scale Marty McFly

As if getting a Lego set of the Delorean along with minifigs of Doc Brown and Marty McFly wasn’t enough, the Back to the Future toy “revival” continues with the announcement that Hot Toys – purveyors of all things 1/6th scale – are to produce a Marty McFly collectible figure styled after the very first film in the trilogy… Question is, will the rest of the cast and the other movies see the light of day? Well, given how many Iron Man figures the company has released, I’d hazard a resounding yes!

The 1/6th scale Marty McFly collectible figure is set to be on show at this weekends San Diego Comic Con.

Getting on Track: Top 10 Films About Trains

22 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Trains in cinema have always made for an excitable source within the realm of the comedy, drama, mystery or suspense pertaining to the plot of a particular film. The setting for the featured trains as the driving force of entertainment serves as the heart and soul of the action for the most part.

In some cases using trains as a last minute symbolic theme for a film can generate great impact that thrives and questions the motives and urgency of the characters and storyline (i.e. the climax scene in The Defiant Ones where the salt-and-pepper escaped convicts Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier try and make a desperate dash for permanent freedom on a speeding train en route to permanent freedom).  Perhaps a train could also add an extra element of action-packed excitement in a film’s conclusive ending such as the uncontrollable commuter train in Speed?
