Obscure Movie Lines I Love: “That’s Five” From the Movie “Top Gun”

26 April 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

There are tons of lines in movies that we love that were 100% intended for us to love.  The writers of the movie knew exactly what they were doing when they inserted said line into the script.  But there are other lines in movies that are simply regular lines that become amazing because of the way an actor said them.  It could have been an expression on their face or it could have simply been the actual tone of voice they used.  Whatever it was, you tend to remember these lines and joke about them with your friends. I decided

Why You Shouldn’t Care Where Kylo Ren’s Scar Is

23 April 2017 1:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway takes aim at those getting worked up over a slight change in make up…

I’m a huge Star Wars fan; I love the films, I’ve been known to defend elements of the prequels, and I’ll not really trust anyone who proudly boasts that they’ve never seen any of the films.

Having said that, I’m failing to get worked up in any way about the fact that, compared to The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren’s scar has moved in the trailer for The Last Jedi. Frankly, 90% of the people who watched and enjoyed The Force Awakens won’t notice, and if you did notice, you probably have too much time on your hands. If it ruins your enjoyment of the film, then you definitely have too much time on your hands.

It’s a fantasy film set a long time ago in a galaxy, »

Why Cannes Giving Netflix The Seal Of Approval Matters

16 April 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway argues that the films being shown at Cannes mark a turning point in cinema…

Ten years ago Netflix were a cool little company that would mail you DVDs every month, even providing a little envelope so you could return Casino Royale before they sent you Pan’s Labyrinth. If someone had told you that in 2017 they’d be making movies, and making movies so well that they would be debuting at the Cannes Film Festival you’d probably laugh. The again, if they told you that the reality TV show host who shaved Vince McMahon’s head at that year’s WrestleMania would be the Us President, you’d think they were insane.

Now of course, it’s hard to imagine the entertainment scene without Netflix and Amazon as producers as well as suppliers. People who used to talk about the “Bric” (Brazil, Russia, India, China) countries emerging »

Better Call Saul Premiere Recap: Is Jimmy Doomed? — Grade It!

10 April 2017 8:10 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

No, Jimmy McGill didn’t get fitted for an orange jumpsuit in Monday’s Better Call Saul premiere… but his various indiscretions, big and small, are starting to catch up with him.

Season 3 kicks off, like the last two did, with a black-and-white prologue following Jimmy/Saul’s post-Walter White life as Cinnabon manager “Gene.” We watch as Gene sadly hauls bags of sugar and sadly glazes cinnamon buns before taking a sad lunch break on a sad mall bench. A young shoplifter runs by him and hides in a photo booth, and when the cops come by, Gene meekly rats the kid out. »

Why Are There So Many British War Films Being Made?

9 April 2017 4:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at the rise in British World War II movies…

This week brought the news that Ridley Scott would be directing a film set during the Battle of Britain. It’s a surprise he hasn’t done it before; he was born two years before war was declared and his father was a career officer in the British Army; he lived it, rather than just having absorbed it through books and films after the fact.

The film joins two other films coming soon that tell of the British experience during the Second World War, Their Finest, a fun romantic dramedy starring the luminous Gemma Arterton and set in the British film industry of the time and Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk . 2017 will also see both Brian Cox and Gary Oldman play Winston Churchill in different projects. It feels like, after a couple of decades where they were few and far between, »

The Incredible “White Boy Day” Drexl Spivey Scene from True Romance

6 April 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

No one knew what was going to happen in 1993 when the directing skills of Tony Scott (Top Gun) and screenwriting skills of Quentin Tarantino would be combined.   Sadly Tony Scott passed away in 2012 so these two legends of film will never collaborate again.  But for a span of 2 hours and 1 minute fans were treated to a total masterpiece of a film in True Romance.   It’ll go down as one of Tarantino’s best screenplays and one of the best films of the 90s. The cast of this film extends well beyond the boundaries of Fantasia.  When Brad

When Did Films Start Getting So Long?

2 April 2017 2:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway wonders why every film has to be so long now…

With the  rumour that Justice League is going to clock in at just shy of three hours, it’s time to ask when did movies start getting really long?

Of course, there have always been long movies, but back then films came with an intermission, now we’re expected to sit through 170 minutes with no respite. There are a couple of reasons for this, I reckon. Though Zack Snyder has denied the movie will be that long, it sounds about right.

One is that with franchise films, each instalment has to be bigger and better, both metaphorically and literally. Everyone wants more action sequences than the last, and everyone wants more characters, too, which is where the second reason comes in.

Every actor wants to be the lead in a film and to receive top billing, but that »

Val Kilmer Jokes About Cate Blanchett Twitter Rant: ‘I Wrote Nice Things… Now I’m a Pervert’

30 March 2017 4:28 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If loving Cate Blanchett is wrong, Val Kilmer doesn’t want to be right.

Kilmer, 57, made an appearance at the Irvine Improv in Irvine, California, on Wednesday night to introduce a special film screening of his one-man play, Citizen Twain.

During a Q&A, an audience member asked Kilmer who was his favorite costar to work with. “I can’t say Cate Blanchett,” he joked. “I wrote nice things about Cate Blanchett on Twitter and now I’m a pervert.”

He added, “I don’t know why loving an actor that’s so talented is creepy, but I guess I’m creepy. »

NCIS Season 14 Episode 19 Review: The Wall

28 March 2017 10:20 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

I confess, I love Bruce McGill, so his appearance in NCIS Season 14 Episode 19 charmed me from first irritable complaint (particularly calling the conference room a "table room," repeatedly).

Does it make any sense to murder two people over flooring? Nope, not really. But since I'm a sucker for a good emotional punch, "The Wall" worked for me much more than it didn't.

There was no reasonable explanation for O'Leary to murder Maya and the unfortunate Corporal Beck with such an exotic method other than for the sake of novelty.

The viewers were also supposed to simply accept that O'Leary immediately leaped to "murder" as the most obvious solution to the problem of the contaminated flooring.

Because suing the supplier who sold you said formaldehyde-tainted flooring is so unreasonable, I guess...?

To add to the head-scratching, nothing she did actually solved the problem. The flooring was still contaminated, and people were going to get sick. »

Val Kilmer Incessantly Tweets About His Cate Blanchett Obsession

27 March 2017 6:38 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Val Kilmer's in love and he doesn't care who knows it. The Top Gun actor first shared his feelings for Cate Blanchett in 2006 with Elle magazine, telling the publication she'd be the actress he'd most like to have on speed dial. He also thought she was aware of his feelings. "I think she probably got a sense of it when I not only forgot my dialogue in the scene, I forgot that I was acting, I forgot I was on a movie set, and I just stood there staring at her," he said at the time. As it turns out, Kilmer's feelings haven't faded. Kilmer took to Twitter over the weekend to tweet out his feelings for the Australian actress and recalled a few anecdotes about their short time »

“Once I flew all the way to Australia just to talk to Cate Blanchett. Her husband met me first. Or, instead, I guess, to be accurate,” the 57-year-old actor wrote, »

Why Only James Cameron Can Save The Terminator Movies

26 March 2017 4:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway argues that only the series creator can breathe life back into the franchise…

This week we got the inevitable news that The Terminator franchise is being lowered into the molten steel one final time, and all but the most ardent member of the resistance against the machines breathed a sigh of relief at its slow demise.

Which is your favourite Terminator movie? I doubt anyone would say Salvation, Genisys or the Rise of the Machines, and by that I mean if you can find someone who prefers those films in the series, I’ll bet good money they’re someone who hasn’t seen the first two.

There was hope in the announcement that Paramount are no longer planning films in the series, and that is that the rights to the films revert to James Cameron in 2019. Unusually, I come not to bury the man who foisted the execrable Avatar upon the world, »

Newswire: William Shatner will have a Senior Moment in new rom-com

20 March 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

William Shatner is boldly going where only so many actors have gone before: Variety reports the Star Trek stalwart has just boarded an indie rom-com called Senior Moment. In what sounds like an homage to both Top Gun and Space Cowboys, Shatner will play a retired Navy pilot who also happened to test aircraft for Nasa. But retirement can’t clip this maverick’s wings, as he zips around town in a little hot rod (hang on, we’re not at the rom-com part yet.) The film’s being directed by Giorgio Serafini, the helmer of such, um, lighthearted fare as Game Of Death starring Wesley Snipes and the forthcoming The Executioners. We assume there’s a meet-cute nestled somewhere in all that bloody revenge, making Serafini very much the right guy to direct a movie about a twilight-years romance.

T2 Trainspotting

19 March 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

In 1997 there came a little movie called Trainspotting, adapted by director Danny Boyle and scenarist John Hodge from Scottish writer Irvine Welsh’s novel of the same name. It was the loose-limbed story of a group of childhood friends spinning their collective wheels in the working-class gloom of Edinburgh, Scotland, scheming schemes, committing petty crimes, arguing the merits of Sean Connery (and, by extension, Scotland) and trying to sustain those decaying friendships all while rotating in and out of a seemingly hopeless cycle of heroin addiction, indulgence and withdrawal. For me, Trainspotting’s exuberant, hyperkinetic style decorated a somewhat sensationalistic attitude toward tragedy, on a sociopolitical as well as personal scale, and its scabrous energy always seemed too much at odds with the overwhelming lethargy which follows the orgasmic relief of a desperately needed hit. (I guess I’m more of a Panic in Needle Park kind of guy.)

Why We Don’t Need More Matrix Movies

19 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway argues against a return for The Matrix…

So, we’re getting another load of Matrix films. Or we will be if Warner Bros get their way. It would be easy just to throw my hands up in the air and go “Oh, I’m sick of reboots, can’t we have something original?” but just because it would be easy doesn’t mean it’s not true, and it doesn’t mean I’m not going to do it.

Luke Owen offered a robust defence of re-heating the series, and he almost convinced me. Here’s my main problem with it; The Matrix isn’t very good. It’s innovative use of bullet time effects aside, there’s not much there; it’s for people who didn’t manage to get to the end of the chapter on René Descartes in their Introduction to Philosophy textbook, »
