The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

25. An Innocent Man

Disney, through its Touchstone banner, had high hopes for this thriller, »

Check Out Anthony Petrie's New 'Rambo: First Blood Part II' Poster

15 April 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"To survive a war, you gotta become war." Don't mess with Rambo. Our friends at Grey Matter Art have unveiled an officially licensed printed for Rambo: First Blood Part II starring Sylvester Stallone as they continue to reveal art in their Rambo series. This new print is by artist Anthony Petrie (known best for his fantastic movie map art) featuring Rambo with his bow & arrow from the second movie. The variant version of this print changes the background and colors a bit, making it almost look like it was printed on metal (though that doesn't seem to be the case). Prints are priced $45/$55 and go on sale next week. Take a look. Here's the Rambo: First Blood Part II screenprint artwork by Anthony Petrie being sold by Grey Matter Art. And here's the variant version of the Rambo: First Blood Part II print, click it for full. This runs $10 more. »

Carolco announces sci-fi action film, Bot

16 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Exclusive: Carolco producer Mario Kassar talks to us about his forthcoming sci-fi action film, Bot. Here are the first details.

In its 80s and 90s heyday, Carolco and its studio co-founder Mario Kassar specialised in such larger-than-life blockbusters as Rambo: First Blood Part II, Total Recall and Terminator 2.

Twenty years on, and the Carolco brand has been revived by Kassar and new CEO Alex Bafer, with one of its first projects being a new incarnation of the fearsome horror-drama, Audition. Beyond that, Bafer also hinted at something more akin to Carolco's sci-fi action films of old; it is, he said, "a Terminator-type sci-fi summer blockbuster."

That film now has a name: it's called Bot, and it's the first in a potential trilogy of movies penned by Tedi Sarafian - the story writer behind, among other things, 2003's Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines.

"Bot's the kind of movie I used »

Games nobody talks about anymore: Operation Wolf

27 February 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Released in 1987, Operation Wolf not only ushered in an era of gun games, but tapped into the decade's macho action movies, Ryan writes...

Some of the biggest arcade machines of the 80s - both in terms of popularity and physical bulk - were about bringing cinematic fantasies to life. Did you have childhood dreams of taking the controls of an X-Wing like Luke Skywalker? Atari's Star Wars let you do just that. Did you want to be Tom Cruise in Top Gun? Then Sega's nausea-inducing After Burner had you covered.

But what if you wanted to be a tough military, gun-toting hero, like Sly in Rambo: First Blood Part II, Arnold in Commando, or to a lesser extent, Chuck in Missing In Action? Lots of 80s games had military themes, like Capcom's Commando (which had nothing to do with the film), Snk's Ikari Warriors or Konami's Green Beret.

The definitive military hard-man game, »

The unmade films of James Cameron

3 February 2015 6:41 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From his psychological thriller to Spider-Man to Battle Angel, here's a look at the James Cameron-directed projects that never happened...

In the summer of 1977, James Cameron, like lots of other people that year, went to the cinema and watched Star Wars. But unlike so many others, Cameron didn't feel elation as the room went dark and the first space ship soared overhead - he felt a shiver of mild panic.

"My reaction to it was not, 'Oh, wow, that's cool. I want to see more,'" he later recalled. "It was, 'Oh wow, I better get off my butt because somebody is doing this stuff, you know, and they're beating me to it.'"

Within one year, the 24-year-old Cameron had borrowed some money from a consortium of dentists looking for a tax break, and with it, made the short film Xenogenesis. That film and its title (which could »

Penn Is Latest Hollywood Celeb to Take Home French Academy's Honor

28 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »
