Spectrevision: The Complete Ranking of All James Bond Titles

4 December 2014 12:56 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A Bond title must convey many elements of the Bond formula in just a few brief words. Glamour, danger, sexiness, international locations!  Try coming up with three words that capture all these. Some Bond titles have done this amazingly well.  Today, the 007 folks took a stab at with just one little word when they unveiled the title of the upcoming 24th installment in the series: “Spectre.” How does the latest name stack up?  Here’s our complete ranking of Bond titles through the years: 24. Quantum of Solace “Placeholder of Something” wasn’t available? 23. Octopussy There are people who think this is the best named Bond film. We’re very glad we don’t know any of those people. 22. Goldeneye All that is gold does not glitter.  Time for Mr. Bond to get a new favorite color. 21. Tomorrow Never Dies And I hear the sun will come out then too.  And hey, »

Can Sam Mendes' New Bond 'Spectre' Top 'Skyfall'?

4 December 2014 5:57 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The James Bond franchise has proved as hard to kill as its eponymous hero. The blockbuster Brit spy films have been declared dead many times before: after the commercial stumble of On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969, after A View to a Kill in 1981 and again after Licence to Kill in 1989. Even 2008's Quantum of Solace, which grossed $586 million worldwide but was down on the $599 million gross of its Bond predecessor Casino Royale (2006), was seen by some as an indication that audiences were tiring of 007.

Christopher Walken just wants to dance

2 December 2014 7:15 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

"Who is the greatest villain of all time?" demands Christopher Walken, standing aboard a ship's deck on a Long Island soundstage. An obvious answer would be Walken himself. During his lengthy and mayhem-filled movie career, he has shot an unarmed Dennis Hopper in True Romance, taken out a hit on Andy Garcia in Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, and plotted a watery death for the entire population of Silicon Valley in the Bond movie A View to a Kill. But today, something is very different about Walken. Soon after delivering that line, he begins to sing—wearing full pirate regalia, »

'Peter Pan's' Christopher Walken on Always Playing the Villain, Doing Live TV

2 December 2014 5:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Christopher Walken is a perennial villain onscreen — in Batman Returns, A View to a Kill, Sleepy Hollow, True Romance and The Rundown, among others — and come Thursday, he'll wear a wig and lose a hand to play antagonist Captain Hook in NBC's Peter Pan Live!  "I don't know how [I got typecast to play so many villains] but I think it's like anything else, in the movies in particular, if you establish yourself as something and you're lucky enough to keep getting hired," he recently told The Hollywood Reporter during a press event in New York. But his long résumé of

The movie characters who scared us as children

5 November 2014 3:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jaws from James Bond

One movie character who scared me as a child was Jaws, the shiny-toothed James Bond villain. Those silver teeth freaked me out, big time – I remember the early sequence from The Spy Who Loved Me was particularly chilling: Jaws lures a defenceless older man into a trap, and proceeds to bite into his neck, killing him. While we're shown no violence, the whole scene terrified me: the way Jaws walked slowly towards the man in a knowing, menacing way, and the idea of him simply biting the man to death (though at least he had the courtesy to stun the victim first).

Being bitten by Jaws isn't like being bitten by a vampire – he drinks no blood. Instead, he just seems to sink those artificial teeth into flesh and tear a hole big enough to cause fatal bleeding. Whenever I'd watch that scene, it made me deeply uncomfortable, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Pierce Brosnan Almost Played Batman For Tim Burton

20 August 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the 1980's, Pierce Brosnan broke into the big time with his debut on the NBC detective comedy Remington Steele. Unfortunately, his success with that show was so great that his contractual obligations stopped him from becoming James Bond once Roger Moore left the series after 1985's A View To A Kill. Up until now, that was the biggest opportunity that we knew Brosnan lost out on in what's been a pretty awesome career. As of today, that's changed as we learned that Pierce Brosnan was considered by Tim Burton for the lead role in Batman. During his Ama on Reddit, Brosnan was asked by a random fan if he ever was considered for the Batman. The fan in question thought he would have made a great actor in the role, but unfortunately for them, Pierce Brosnan confirmed and crushed their dream casting in the statement below. Yes, I did. »

Actors Who’ve Played the Same Character the Most Times

12 May 2014 10:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Hugh Jackman currently negotiating to play Wolverine for a seventh and eighth time, Cinelinx takes a look at actors who’ve played the same role eight times or more. Who has played the same character most often? Come in and find out.

Hugh Jackman has already played Wolverine five times--x-Men (2000),  X2: X-Men United (2003) X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), and The Wolverine (2013)—as well as a cameo in X-Men:First Class (2011). Soon we’ll be seeing him fully clawed again on the big screen in X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Recently, he told Collider that he might shoot Wolverine 3 and X-Men: Apocalypse “back-to-back”, which would make a total of eight times (9 times with the cameo) that he’ll portray the Canadian mutant.  

You might be thinking “Wow! That’s amazing! I’ve never heard of anyone playing the same role so many times.” Well, for those who may not know it, »

Here are the Movies Coming and Going on Netflix This May

1 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every month when Netflix mixes up its roster of films to stream online, we lose the valuable entertainment of a number of great movies. But the silver lining to that dark cloud lies in the number of films that you may have been waiting for, for quite some time. As we enter the month of May and (hopefully) sunnier weather, these movies -- which include a combination of favorite characters as "James Bond," "Forrest Gump" and "Godzilla" -- may give you more reason to stay indoors and tune in. Check out the list of films that will now be coming to a small screen near you: A View To A Kill (007 James Bond) All I Want Backdraft Bed Of Roses Beethoven Boys Don't Cry Bram Stoker's Dracula Candyman Cursed Diggstown Encounters At The End Of The World Fantastic Voyage Federal Hill Fido Final Fantasy VII Advent Children For Your Eyes Only »

Watch Walken waltz in, Buscemi step it out with De Blasio, a cat who thinks he is an escapologist and a Disney near-disaster

We've got our dancing shoes on this week and start the list with a wonderful dance compilation featuring Christopher Walken. The much-imitated actor has appeared in more than 100 films and television shows, including The Deer Hunter, Annie Hall, The Dogs of War, The Dead Zone, A View to a Kill, True Romance, Pulp Fiction and Catch Me If You Can, as well as music videos by many recording artists, including Madonna. In 2001 Walken helped to choreograph a video for Fatboy Slim's Weapon of Choice, which won six MTV awards.

Someone who could do with a little Walken magic is New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, who makes his debut at the Inner Circle Show later this month. Luckily he gets some training tips from Steve Buscemi for the charity event, »

Big turning points in the James Bond movie franchise

20 February 2014 4:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Michael Reed 21 Feb 2014 - 05:56

We take a look at some potential turning points that could have altered the Bond legacy significantly...

007 lists resurrection amongst his hobbies, but speculation is our game today. Your own ideal fantasy James Bond film probably depends on what sort of Bond you're into. If you like serious Bond, you probably consider it a crying shame that Timothy Dalton didn't get to make at least one more film. A fair proportion of the fandom consider Never Say Never Again to be one of the worst of the series, so for them, rolling the dice on a 1976 production with a different actor and a more exciting script would have been worth it.

Furthermore, a Sony Pictures produced rival film with, say, Liam Neeson in the late 1990s could have been fascinating. How about Connery returning to the role in his 60s? All of these possibilities »

'The Vampire Diaries': What's the most memorable death from season 4? -- Poll

23 January 2014 3:07 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Vampire Diaries’ upcoming 100th episode centers on our favorite evil vixen in what could be her final moments. After Katherine Pierce had a heart attack and fell down the Salvatores’ stairs in the mid-season finale, we’re scared that it might finally be time to say goodbye to the woman who once loved both Salvatore brothers but never loved anyone more than herself. So to honor what could potentially be the most memorable death (or near-death) scene in season 5, we’re reliving similar moments from the past four seasons.

Now, in our final day, join me and my fellow »
