Here's a fun movie supercut video from FoundItemClothing that shows us all of the wonderful computer hacking from the films of the 1990s. He calls it "A Whole New World," and it features very dated hacking scenes from films like Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Johnny Mnemonic, Office Space, The Matrix, and more. I sure did love '90s technology, but I don't miss it.
Movies sprinted to make the most of the potential wonders and horrors of cyberspace. For your entertainment and viewing pleasure, this supercut brings you the best of 90s computing in all its grandiose and cringeworthy glory.

Well, that was unexpected. Today, Lucasfilm announced that it will be bringing us an animated film titled Strange Magic in just three short months. Touchstone Pictures will be releasing the project, inspired by William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” into theaters on January 23rd, 2015.
Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina, Peter Stormare and Elijah Kelley all lend their voices to the film, playing magical creatures such as goblins, elves, fairies and imps who come to blows over a magic potion. Musical interludes help to tell the story, with Strange Magic incorporating “popular songs from the past six decades.”
Gary Rydstrom, a seven-time Oscar winner for his work as a sound designer on films as diverse as Saving Private Ryan, Titanic and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, will direct from an original idea by George Lucas. Rydstrom’s experience isn’t limited to sound work – he also helmed Oscar-nominated, »

Thanks to the popularity of Lethan Weapon, the action comedy genre thrived in the 1980s and 1990s. The genre combines fast paced thrills and violence with witty one-liners and often ridiculous comedic scenarios. For some reason, the 80s were a veritable breeding ground for many of these types of films and the trend continued well into the 90s. For instance, 1991 saw the release of a movie that pretty much turned the genre on its head. That film is the buddy cop adventure The Hard Way and it is not only a smart action thrill ride with buckets of fresh humor but also a smart commentary on real life police work and method acting.

August 6th and 9th, 1945 forever changed the course of history. When the first nuclear bombs were dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, World War II ended, but a new fear was born that dominated the thoughts of all men, women, and children for decades to come. The Cold War, atomic bomb testing, a cartoon turtle telling children to “duck and cover”, and this new technology that had the actual potential to literally end the world changed the perception of what was scary. Art reflects life, so cinema began to capitalize on these fears. Gone were the days of creepy castles, cobwebs, bats, vampires, werewolves, and the other iconic images that ruled genre cinema in film’s earliest decades. Science fiction was larger than ever and giant ants, giant octopi, terror from beyond the stars, and »

This article contains revealed spoilers for Terminator Genisys. The rest is pure speculation on our part.
Paramount began to take the wraps off its reboot of the Terminator series, Terminator Genisys, last week. It was courtesy of an Entertainment Weekly article and cover that revealed what, at first glance, look like weighty spoilers for the film. If you missed them, you can find them here. Do be warned, we are going to have to discuss them further down, though.
In spite of the reveal, there's still a sizeable question that remains over the film, and that's involving the role of one-time Doctor Who star Matt Smith. He's clearly a key member of the cast - we've certainly been told so - but just who or what he is remains under wraps. In fact, »
When you're in the mood for an action movie, Netflix has plenty to stream. Great, except that so many of their action titles are no-name, forgettable schlock. So we've done some of the heavy lifting by highlighting the best of the best currently available in the genre. Who do you want to see duke it out? Take your pick, from gangsters to gladiators, robots to ninjas, schoolkids to superheroes.
Cue that suiting-up pre-battle montage and start streaming, because here are some of the best action movies Netflix has to offer. (Availability subject to change.)
1. "13 Assassins" (2010) R
2. "48 Hrs."(1982) R
3. "Assault on Precinct 13" (1976) R

Jai Courtney ("Good Day To Die Hard")...
...plays the 1984/2029 'Kyle Reese'...
...and Arnold Schwarzenegger is the 'T-800'.
The new film is a continuation of Cameron's "Terminator 2: Judgement Day".
In the first film, The 'Terminator' is sent back in time from the year 2029 to 1984 to kill 'Sarah Connor' (Linda Hamilton).
'Kyle Reese' (Michael Biehn), a soldier from the future, is sent back in time to protect Sarah, so that her »

Yesterday we saw two terrible promo images from Terminator: Genisys, adorning the cover of the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. Today EW is back with some pictures to go with said cover story and there's a lot of standing around and mouth open screaming whilst gun-shooting and I doubt any of it is going to boost your confidence in the film after yesterday's unfortunately ugly first look. I finally broke down yesterday and read the "twist" and spoilery part of EW's piece, which went as follows: Twist No. 1c Sarah Connor isn't the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she's been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger's Terminator--an older T-800 she calls "Pops"--who »

The Terminator is having a bad day. It's a muggy July afternoon in New Orleans—the temperature is loitering in the triple digits—and Arnold Schwarzenegger is inside a giant warehouse on the grounds of Nasa's Michoud Assembly Facility. Suited up in a black leather jacket with green-painted latex obscuring most of the right side of his face, he is again playing the indelible robot that solidified his place in Hollywood some 30 years ago. So far today the former governor of California has been stepped on and forced to crawl on the ground, and now, as he gasps for breath fighting his opponent, »

Hmm. Game Of Thrones' Emilia Clarke and Doctor Who's Matt Smith there playing Laser Tag in their Halloween costumes. These pics come the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, and are not actually official movie stills...so maybe we'll give Paramount the benefit of the doubt? Then again, there are these newly revealed plot details: "Twist No. 1? Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger’s Terminator—an older T-800 she calls “Pops”—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but »
Please note: even though the following details have been officially released, they seem incredibly spoiler-y to us.
One of summer 2015's biggest gambles is the expensive resurrection of the Terminator franchise. The last attempt to spin a new trilogy out of the series started and then promptly ended with McG's Terminator: Salvation. Next year, director Alan Taylor will be having a fresh attempt to start a new trio of movies, with Terminator: Genesys.
The film brings Arnold Schwarzenegger back to the heart of the franchise, and he's starring alongside Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith and Jai Courtney. And the new issue of Entertainment Weekly has taken the lid off a fairly major part of the story.
The crucial part continues after Daphne the Spoiler Squirrel (just to stop »
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly we have our first official look at Terminator: Genisys. It comes in the form of two covers that they released for the magazine, and they feature Emilia Clark as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor, and Matt Smith as they will appear in the upcoming sci-fi adventure film. We also have a description of the story for you that you can check out below:
Terminator: Genisys starts in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that »

Entertainment Weekly magazine has done a cover story on the upcoming "Terminator Genisys" which offers two collectible magazine covers featuring Emilia Clarke (Sarah Connor), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese), Jason Clarke (John Connor) and Matt Smith's still unknown character who is a close ally of John Connor.
The big news isn't the covers themselves though, but rather what's inside with the feature story confirming various reports about how the film intends to shake-up the franchise. Here is the key quote and, naturally, Big Spoilers ahead:
"Sarah Connor isn't the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9.
Since then, she's been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger's Terminator—an older T-800 she calls "Pops"—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. »

This week's issue of Entertainment Weekly reveals a lot more than just pictures of the upcoming Terminator: Genysis - though those are pretty cool too. The magazine revealed something that no one really saw coming about the new iteration, something that changes a lot about the the future of the Terminator universe. Take a look: "Sarah Connor isn't the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she's been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger's Terminator-an older T-800 she calls "Pops"-who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who's great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion. »
It is genuinely surprising to see "Terminator: Genisys" on the cover of this week's "Entertainment Weekly." After all, this represents the third attempt to start a new trilogy of "Terminator" films, and the last fumble was made by Warner Bros, whose parent company owns and publishes "Entertainment Weekly," while the new film is being released by Paramount, a competitor. Then again, looking at the pictures they used on the cover, maybe "Entertainment Weekly" knew exactly what they were doing, because they are profoundly unflattering shots of the cast, including a grinning Terminator, a weird decision since everyone else has on their "this movie is really serious" faces. And the article inside has set off a massive recoil from fandom, which certainly wasn't how Paramount was hoping to kick off their next nine months of promoting the film before its release. The reason fandom is up in arms today is because »

Entertainment Weekly has just released two covers for their upcoming issue, which feature a first look at the upcoming sequel/reboot/reinvention (whatever you wanna call it) "Terminator Genisys."
The site also mentions a twist in the upcoming film:
Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9.

“I’ll be back.” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior will make good on that promise next summer when Paramount unleashes Terminator: Genisys to theaters. While familiar characters like Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese will be played by new faces, Arnold brings his stalwart screen presence to the franchise’s next chapter, as mentioned in the film’s recently revealed plot details accompanied by new photos.
In their first look at the next installment of the Terminator franchise, EW debuted a photo of Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor with Jai Courtney’s Kyle Reese on a motorcycle and another picture featuring Jason Clarke’s John Connor next to Matt Smith (Doctor Who) with the T-800 endoskeleton lurking behind them.
