What movie, TV show or music did your parents ban from you as a kid?

25 March 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Raunchy comedies. Scary movies. Songs with explicit lyrics. Space, the final frontier. When we're kids, we're frequently banned from checking out films, TV, music or other entertainment before we're "ready." Whatever that means. At HitFix, we discovered there's a range of what was banned in our households when we were children. Some folks like lucky-duck Gregory Ellwood had no bans at all. Some bans didn't hold. Some bans were so intense, they blanketed all corners of media. Below are some of our staffers sounding off on what wasn't allowed in their household. Share with us in the comments what stuff you couldn't watch or hear. Chris Eggertsen - "Married...With Children" "Married...With Children" was like the Devil in our house, and here's the kicker: I'm almost positive my mother never watched it before banning it. It was enough that a random Christian woman living halfway across the country whom »

Steven Spielberg Will Direct 'Ready Player One'

25 March 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Steven Spielberg has signed on to direct the adaptation Ready Player One for Warner Bros. Back in December, we reported that Warner Bros. was courting a number of high-profile directors, such as Christopher Nolan, Robert Zemeckis, Peter Jackson, Edgar Wright and Matthew Vaughn to take on this adaptation of Ernest Cline's novel of the same name, but Steven Spielberg wasn't mentioned in that report. Deadline reports that this project will likely be the director's next movie, after he finishes his Roald Dahl adaptation The Bfg, which is slated for release next July.

Ready Player One centers on a teenager named Wade Watts, who becomes obsessed with a virtual reality world known as Oasis, that allows players to live out their fantasies. After the game's creator suddenly dies, an elaborate treasure hunt is held within the Oasis world, with the winner emerging to take control of the entire company. This »

Steven Spielberg to Direct Ready Player One

25 March 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ready Player One is an entertaining book that would make for a terrific film if not for licensing headaches. The story takes place in 2044 and revolves around the poverty-stricken Wade Watts, who’s only escape is trying to solve a decades old game from the late James Halliday creator of the worldwide, virtual reality space, Oasis. Working along the lines of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, if Wade can progress through the Vr game, he gets to own Oasis, which is pretty much the equivalent of owning the Internet. The trick to beating the game is to figure out how to decipher the clues that are rooted in Halliday’s love of 1980s pop culture. And that’s where a movie gets tricky. In his book, author Ernest Cline could pack in 80s references to his heart’s content (sometimes to the detriment of the story; at points it »

Back to the Future tribute show heading to ITV with… Keith Lemon?

25 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sigh. This is likely to be a pretty undignified tribute to one of the most popular movies of the 1980s.

ITV have announced that they are doing a tribute show to the iconic Back to the Future featuring Celebrity Juice and Through the Keyhole presenter Keith Lemon, the alter-ego of comedian Leigh Francis.

The programme will be called Keith Lemon’s Back to the Future Tribute and will also feature comedian and Take Me Out host Paddy McGuiness as Biff and TV chef and I’m a Celebrity Get, Me Out of Here survivor Gino D’Acampo as Doc Brown. Pop band McBusted will provide the Johnny B. Goode cover. The programme will feature skits and recreations of the movie’s iconic scenes with other pseudo-famous people.

Not only that, but Lemon will also be interviewing several members of the cast and crew as well as visiting the sets used during the movie. »

Back To The Future tribute heading to ITV, Keith Lemon hosts

24 March 2015 11:59 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paddy McGuinness, Keith Lemon and McBusted will be leading ITV's Back To The Future celebrations.

There are, of course, two significant Back To The Future anniversaries this year. The first is that 2015 marks the 30th anniversary of the first film's release. The second is that 2015 also marks the year that Marty and the Doc visited in Back To The Future Part II.

ITV2 is saluting at least the first of these, and it's ordered a 90 minute special tribute to celebrate the film's birthday. We'd imagine it'll coincide with the film's original release date, in July.

Er, you might need to sit down for the next bit.

The programme will be called Keith Lemon's Back To The Future Tribute, and as part of it, Lemon will be re-enacting scenes from the film with a bunch of sort-of-famous people. So, Paddy McGuinness will be playing Biff, Gino D'Acampo is to take »

20 Best Comedy Film Sequels Of All-Time

23 March 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Comedy sequels, generally speaking, tend to suck. The same joke told twice is rarely as funny as the first time, after all – which is why comedic follow-ups tend to fall by the wayside, desperate to tap into those original hi-jinks, but unable to find new and creative ways of doing so. The best comedy sequels, of course, are those that manage to transfer what worked about the first film into a second whilst maintaining a sense of freshness that stops it from feeling like just a “lazy rehash” (cough: The Hangover: Part II – awful).

Truth is, there are very few comedy sequels that are actually better than the movies they were inspired by. That’s not to say there aren’t a few exceptions to that rule, but for the most part it’s one that sticks. It’s also not to say that there aren’t any worthwhile comedy sequels at all; there are, »

The Matrix gets the Lego recreation treatment

23 March 2015 12:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Quite a few Lego remakes have popped up online of late, but we're still finding each one as amazing as the last.

This time, YouTuber Snooperking has recreated the lobby fight scene from The Matrix.

Writing on the video sharing site, the animator said: "Neo and Trinity show up as Legos to kick some ass.

"Spent a while on this one, taught myself alot. This was more of an experimental animation to test my limits of animation."

If you haven't watched them yet, check out the Lego recreations for Back to the Future and Fifty Shades of Grey.

Fund This: ‘Time Baristas’ Rides A Coffee Machine To The Past

18 March 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Project Name: Time Baristas Season Two

Asking For: $10,000 Cad ($7,963.05 Usd) on Indiegogo

Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $1,850 Cad ($1,473.16 Usd)

Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 29

Description: Move over, hot tubs--coffee makers are the hip, new time machines. A magical kitchen appliance drives the plot of Time Baristas, which is currently seeking support on Indiegogo in order to fund its second season.

Time Baristas centers on Evan (Marcus Haccius) and Ryan (Iain Lacourt), a pair of roommates who manage to break and repair their coffee machine in such a way that it becomes a time travel device. Despite this seemingly silly premise, Time Baristas is actually a fairly serious time travel story, with some dead bodies and mysterious characters providing a high level of intrigue and suspense.

Like Back to the Future, Time Baristas' creators are hoping to turn their series into a trilogy, »
