Bridge the gap until ‘Stranger Things’ season 2 with these similar stories

28 September 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Stranger Things wormed its way into all our hearts this summer. The Netfllix original series took us all back to the 1980’s with its tale of kids in small town America battling with a shady organisation and portals to another dimension. At only eight episodes long, there just wasn’t enough of Eleven, Mike and co to satisfy us, and thankfully a second season has been confirmed. Unfortunately we won’t get it until some point next year, and if you’re anything like us, you want it now!

Sadly we can’t punch through to the future and magic Stranger Things season 2 here now. We can however, offer some solutions to help make the withdrawal a little less painful.  We’ve hand selected some of our favourite films and television shows from the eighties and nineties, most of which the show paid homage to.

Corey Feldman’s ‘Today’ Show Musical Performance Mesmerizes Twitter (Video)

16 September 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Corey Feldman sang his new song “Go 4 It” on NBC’s “Today” show Friday morning, and his performance was, uh, well, let’s just let Twitter do the judging for us, since his name quickly started trending after the segment aired. I'm usually against cyber bullying but Corey Feldman is just asking for it. — Theresa (@15yearswiser) September 16, 2016 I truly feel bad for Corey Feldman. At first I just thought he was a mediocre actor, then I watched the Today Show. — Bill Mitchell (@askbillmitchell) September 16, 2016 Also Read: Corey Feldman Slams Hollywood Over Haim Death Feldman, famous for roles in “The Goonies, »

'E.T.' -- Original Movie Poster Art Going for Six Figures! (Photos)

13 September 2016 2:30 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

The art that became the iconic poster for "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" is hittin' the auction block, and it ain't gonna be cheap ... as in you'll have to trade in a car -- or 2 or 3 -- just to make a bid.  Heritage Auctions is selling the original art piece, which was painted by famed artist John Alvin -- who's also done art for "Star Wars," "The Goonies," "Blazing Saddles" and a bunch of other hit movies. »

Watch This: 80's Adventure Throwback Rescue Short Film 'Beyond'

7 September 2016 4:45 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I can do this!" Another outstanding short film that is worth your time. This one is titled Beyond, and it's from writer/director Jeremy Haccoun (see @JeremyHaccoun). This is also exciting to watch because we originally featured this back in 2012 when it was looking for funding on Kickstarter, now four years later you can see the completed short film and it's impressive. Haccoun wanted to make an adventure film that hearkens back to the Spielberg movies of the 80s, like Indiana Jones and The Goonies, and he certainly achieved that. Even the score is pretty much a John Williams throwback. This is also the kind of fun film where a kid does something crazy, but pulls it off, which is cool because this should inspire kids to be brave. Description from Vimeo: "Remember the early Spielberg era of the 80s? Indiana Jones? The Goonies? Are you hungry for more adventure »

How ‘Pete’s Dragon’ & ‘Stranger Things’ Did Spielberg Nostalgia Better Than ‘The Bfg’

15 August 2016 9:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With “Stranger Things” as the buzziest new show, and “Pete’s Dragon” gliding into theaters on the strongest reviews for a major studio release in months, 2016 could go down in the history books as the Summer of Spielberg — as long as you overlook the movie Steven Spielberg actually directed.

Both the Duffer Brothers’ Netflix series and David Lowery’s Disney remake are fueled by ’80s nostalgia, specifically the world captured as captured in 1982’s “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” and 1985’s Spielberg-produced “The Goonies.” It’s a place of fractured families and corded phones, wood-paneled station wagons and well-meaning villains.

The vogue for Spielberg-esque entertainment is in some ways a simple matter of chickens coming home to roost: Lowery was born in 1980; the Duffer twins, Matt and Ross, in 1984. “E.T.” and its infinite lesser derivatives would have entered their consciousness before they gained the ability to distinguish one from the other. »

Lumberjanes Adaptation Finds Its Director, Emily Carmichael

10 August 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The Wrap just announced that Emily Carmichael will direct the adaptation of the young girls coming of age comic book series Lumberjanes from Boom! Box comics. If you thought a coming of age show like Stranger Things was lacking girl power this is your answer. Considered a female version of “The Goonies, “Lumberjanes” tells the story of five young girls at summer camp who must unite to fight a supernatural threat to the camp and the surrounding forest. Carmichael has earned her stripes in short films for handful of years now and feature film jobs are starting to come at her at a quick pace. Only three months ago she was attached to write and direct the family adventure filck Powerhouse for producers Steven Speilberg and...

Holy Kitten! Emily Carmichael is directing 'Lumberjanes'

10 August 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strange things are afoot at summer camp! Boom! Studios Lumberjanes looks to have found its director. And it's a woman. Created by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis and Noelle Stevenson, Lumberjanes has been a big hit for Boom! Studios from the very beginning. The Eisner Award-winning all-ages series follows a group of girls named Mal, Ripley, Molly, April, and Jo at summer camp, where they get into some supernatural escapades. It's as if Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Goonies had a baby that really loved puns. The camp name? Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady Types. It's great. The Wrap reports Emily Carmichael is set to direct the adaptation for 20th Century Fox. Boom! execs Ross Richie, Stephen Christy, and Adam Yoelin are serving as producers and Will Widger is writing the screenplay. At the time of the original adaptation announcement, that was a cause for »

5 Places From Movies You Should Never Eat

31 July 2016 3:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

When it comes to eateries in film, you can never be too sure.

In K-Shop – out on DVD 1st August – a kebab shop owner takes revenge on the boozed-fuelled, aggro customers by sticking them in doner meat. It’s the latest in a long and very grisly line of places you really should be careful about dining at in the movies.

To help you avoid a bellyache (or worse) we’ve put together this rundown of the five places to avoid at all costs…

Best Kebab

As Seen In: K-shop (2016)

Where: Bournemouth

Description: Your standard city centre kebab house. Can get a tad raucous on the weekend.

The Chef: Salah (Ziad Abaza), who takes over the shop and turns vigilante after his father is killed in an altercation with some drunken customers.

Clientele: Piss-heads, ASBOs, and stag-doers. Your standard Friday night mob, in other words.

Today’s Special: A mixed doner – a mixture of piss-heads, »

‘Stranger Things’: Watch a Video of Netflix’s Throwback Series Side by Side With Its Retro Influences

If you’ve watched “Stranger Things,” you’ll surely have noticed by now that Netflix’s latest binge-worthy show is replete with references to ’80s movies. (And if you haven’t watched “Stranger Things,” why haven’t you watched “Stranger Things”?) Courtesy of an intrepid Vimeo user, one Ulysse Thevenon, you can now see excerpts of the Duffer Brothers’ throwback series side by side with the movies that have most visibly influenced it, a few of which are from the ’70s.

Set to the show’s instant-classic theme song — itself a bit of John Carpenter worship — the nearly five-minute video is unsurprisingly heavy in Steven Spielberg clips. “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” abound in the video, which features no diegetic sound from either “Stranger Things” or the rest of its influences, »

Ten Favorite Things About Stranger Things

23 July 2016 7:54 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Kieran, here.  There’s something to be said about earnest storytelling in television.  It often comes packaged in projects that are deeply flawed, but somehow those flaws contribute to what make the show a singular experience. Such is the case with Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” which premiered a week ago to much fanfare and online discussion.

Though “Stranger Things,” created by Matt and Ross Duffer very blatantly poaches elements from some very familiar markers it doesn’t resemble anything else on television at the moment. The aforementioned earnestness of this series about supernatural and…well, stranger things happening in 1983 small town Indiana could have easily served as a liability, but becomes one of the show’s greatest strengths. 

All of my defenses were up going into my viewing of “Stranger Things”. 80s-era Spielberg holds little personal resonance as it does for others. I’ve never seen The Goonies. I have »

'Stranger Things': How Netflix's Retro Hit Resurrects the Eighties

21 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's one thing to set a TV series in the 1980s; it's a whole other thing, however, to make it feel like it was actually shot during the Reagan-and-Rubik's-Cube era. Matt and Ross Duffer's new Netflix series Stranger Things is full of nostalgic nods to the decade and its pop-cultural products, but it's also uncommonly rigorous about getting the details just right — whether it's the many pitch-perfect music cues, the hat-tipping nods and homages to Eighties movies, or simply nailing the cringeworthy fashion statements of the day (those Mom jeans! »
