In 2014 we posted Rishi Kaneria’s supercut on Stanley Kubrick’s love of the color red. Now, inspired by that video, Marc Anthony Figueras has created his own video, this time surveying the director’s use of color all across the color spectrum. Films referenced: 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, Eyes Wide Shut. And, for those who’d like to simply skip to their favorite hue, here are the chapter markings: Red- 0:07 Blue- 1:30 Yellow- 2:12 Purple- 2:42 Pink- 2:51 Orange- 2:59 Green- 3:15 Black & White- 3:45 »

There may never be a more precise filmmaker than Stanley Kubrick. Quite possibly the most meticulous and, arguably, most influential director in cinema, there are no happy accidents or mistakes in his films. Each comes with multitudes of planning, staging, thinking and analyzing, and his themes of paranoia can sometimes subsequently drive people mad — depending on how you read the documentary “Room 237.” And among the most distinct and impressionable details in Kubrick’s work come from his use of color, as made evident by Vimeo user Marc Anthony Figueras’ supercut “Kubrick in Color.” Read More: Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay Explores How Stanley Kubrick Observes Humanity In His Films Vividly displaying the British filmmaker’s singular vision through his use of red, blue, yellow, orange, green and black & white, namely in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “The Shining,” “Full Metal Jacket,” and “Eyes Wide Shut,” as well as “Barry Lyndon” and »

There is something inherently frustrating about the prospect of university life. As a college student, you can feel as if you’re stuck in limbo. You’re obviously no longer a child as sex, drugs and alcohol pervade your everyday world, yet you’re not really an adult — totally free of the burdens of the 9-to-5 rat race for at least a few more years. A feeling of unease can fall over you, as there’s always a kegger or a party to attend while lovers change partners more often than bed-sheets.
Everybody Wants Some!!, the long-awaited spiritual sequel to Richard Linklater‘s classic comedy Dazed & Confused is now out in theaters. In the film, a college freshman (Blake Jenner) arrives at school to find that his new baseball teammates are an out-of-control, alcohol-fueled army of irresponsible party-dudes.
To celebrate, we compiled ten of the finest college movies, all ranging wildly in style and tone. »

Michael Stevens For The Good:
"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" is a worthy addition to the 'Batman' movie canon, combining stunning visuals and a powerful soundtrack collaboration between Hans Zimmer and Junkie Xl to create a spectacular, heart-wrenching action movie.
"Mythologizing DC Comics' iconic superheroes, Snyder pays homage to Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut", "A Clockwork Orange" and "Full Metal Jacket", while exploring the life of the alien 'Kal-El' of 'Krypton'..
"Ben Affleck, looking like Frank Miller's bulky 'Dark Knight', is effective enough as 'Bruce Wayne/Batman', introduced early on as a shadowy, pulp mag villain, spread flat across a wall, ready to strike, before his reveal as the crime-fighting vigilante 'Batman'. »

There have been plenty of articles on motivational speeches in movies. Many of these speeches come from sports movies where the coach is trying to motivate his team or a player is trying to motivate another player. The “big speech” is a great staple for any movie and it’s the director’s chance to inspire the audience. One particular genre I’d like to focus on today is the war movie. If there’s one place you can see some amazing speeches and monologues it’s in war movies. From Braveheart’s “Freedom” speech to the opening marine scene in Full Metal Jacket, here are

You never know what's going to happen with an audition," actor Ted Levine remembers of the first time he portrayed Jame Gumb, The Silence of the Lambs villain also known as "Buffalo Bill." "I just pulled something out. It was scary. It felt kind of magical."
"I read with the three final guys who were going to be Buffalo Bill," says Brooke Smith, who played Catherine Martin, the U.S. senator's daughter whom Gumb abducts in the movie. "When Ted walked in, it was so crazily obvious. I asked him, »
Oddly enough I first saw Adam Baldwin as a mean bully in the 80s movie Reckless. That was a pretty cool movie about a rebellious type in high school who gets involved with the typical blond cheerleader. It’s a movie starring Aidan Quinn and Darryl Hannah. Baldwin is Hannah’s original boyfriend before Quinn’s rebel character moves in an woos her. Baldwin played the role of bad guy perfectly in that movie and I liked him ever since. Most of you know Baldwin as Animal Mother in Full Metal Jacket and Jayne Cobb in Firefly But Baldwin’s been around the

Whenever you hear a film.s title mentioned during its running time you can.t help but get a little chill. It.s almost as if the film itself is winking at you with acknowledgement. But, what would happen if, when their titles were uttered, the films immediately came to an end? Well, one nifty YouTube editor has created not just one but two videos that end around a dozen films the moment that someone says the title. And it.s a damn good watch. Want to see more? Of course you do. Well Chris Huebs has also worked his magic on the likes of Forrest Gump, Fight Club, Gone Baby Gone, Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers, Full Metal Jacket, The Departed, and, rather tremendously, Back To The Future, too. Click on the video below to enjoy a sequel that really does match-up to and even surpasses its »

Amy is genuinely moving because it asks what you would do if you were a loved one witnessing Amy Winehouse’s demise. It’s a question many of us would like to pose an answer to, but the reality is that you were dealing with a woman who was fully independent and had more money at her fingers than many could imagine.

In “Goat,” there are blood brothers, and then there are fraternity brothers, and the trick is figuring out which ones really have your back. (There are also Jonas brothers, but that’s another story.) Based on Brad Land’s harrowing anti-hazing memoir about an Ohio teen who’s abducted and beaten by thugs after a frat party, only to find himself undergoing even more demeaning abuse during Hell Week the following fall, this testosterone-drenched indie-movie adaptation feels like something that might have come out under the MTV Films banner a decade ago (back when the book was published), as director Andrew Neel can’t quite decide whether to indict or endorse the hard-partying behavior on display — painfully aware that half the audience has pledged or will pledge the Greek system.
Judging by legitimate gasps of concern from maternal types attending the film’s Sundance premiere, Land’s Cincinnati, Ohio-lensed expose »
