Michael Owen claims to have watched only eight films ... but we all have our cultural blind-spots

15 October 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

How many films have you seen? Michael Owen could count them on the toes of his footballing feet. The England striker turned pundit told his three million Twitter followers this week: "Watched my eighth ever film on the flight home. Must have been bored. #HateFilms". Owen, who had been on business in China, then offered a list of "Films I've been forced to watch", including Rocky, Ghost, and Cool Runnings. »

Cool Runnings writer, Michael Goldberg, dies aged 55

5 October 2014 10:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some very sad news: screenwriter Michael Goldberg has died, at the age of 55.

Some really sad news. Screenwriter and producer Michael Goldberg has died, from the brain and sinus cancer that he'd been battling for over a year. He was 55 years old.

Goldberg's list of credits include the screenplay to Little Giants, Bushwhacked and Snow Dogs. He also wrote and directed The Lovemaster back in 1997. Yet it's Cool Runnings that's likely to be the project of his closest to many of our hearts. The 1993 comedy remains a firm, witty favourite, and the script - which Goldberg co-wrote with Lynn Siefert and Tommy Swerdlow - was his first work to make it to the big screen.

Rest in peace Mr Goldberg. 55 is no age. And thank you for the chuckles.

Reese Witherspoon, Corey Stoll and 'The Good Lie' Cast Talk Making 2014's Most Worthwhile Film

3 October 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Good Lie is titled after the lies in Huckleberry Finn, the type of lie that is a lie for the greater good, even if lying is wrong. The Good Lie, the movie,  has a small opening this weekend in under 500 theaters and will hopefully begin to slowly expand to more theaters with it’s poster of smiling Reese Witherspoon’s head miraculously floating over an African desert. The poster for The Good Lie and the trailer for The Good Lie are, themselves, actual good lies because what looks like The Blind Side but with Reese Witherspoon is not, instead it’s one of those movies that will be shown to our children in school.

You remember the type of movie I’m talking about: you have a substitute or your teacher got a little ahead in the lesson plan or you have a half-holiday day so the class gets »

10 Video Game Little Guys Who Had No Right To Win

26 September 2014 3:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Nintendo

If the movies can teach us one thing, it’s that everybody loves an underdog story. Rocky, Cool Runnings, Dodgeball… There’s countless tales where the guys who stood no chance actually came out on top. Perhaps they inspire us to shoot for greatness ourselves or maybe we simply grow attached to the downtrodden characters who desperately want to better themselves; whatever it is, we can’t get enough.

Video games have their own underdog heroes but, admittedly, they’re a lot harder to come across. After all, video game heroes are often impossibly bulky or hold fantastical abilities and powers; how on earth could they ever be considered the underdogs? Still, there are heroes out there who embody that ‘little guy’ spirit and not just in a physical sense.

Many heroes have to overcome mental and physical stumbling blocks before they can become the hero they are destined to be. »

Netflix has a website for people who love spoilers

23 September 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Avert your eyes, spoiler-phobes: Netflix, the streaming video service that is arguably the reason we care about spoilers in the first place, now has a special web page dedicated to the very phenomenon it helped create.

As spotted by The Wrap, the site is titled Living With Spoilers, and is broken into three sections, which demand to be discussed in detail. So consider this a spoilerific deep dive into Netflix’s site about Spoilers.

What kind of spoiler are you?

This is a flowchart so you can determine what kind of spoiler you are—”spoiler” meaning, in this case, a person who spoils. »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – September 1st 2014

1 September 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Believe it or not, films and television programmes added to Netflix and Amazon do have a tendency to expire and no longer be there after a while; this isn’t as publicised as when the titles in question are added though. So by the time you read this there are around 50 titles disappearing from Netflix.

If you have ever wanted to watch the 2002 version of The Count of Monte Cristo then you have probably missed your chance by now. What this does mean however is that probably next week Netflix will have added a whole raft of new stuff, I say new but it will probably be a mixture of catalogue and stuff from the last year. I know that the underrated Enders Game and the superior Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due there in September, I just don’t know when.

‘Foxcatcher’ Teaser Trailer #3: Going for the Gold

28 August 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Those who are already familiar with the story of millionaire John du Pont and Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz will already know that upcoming biographical drama Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carell as the former and Channing Tatum as the latter, won’t be a happy-go-lucky kind of sports movie. Those who saw Carell’s name attached and were hoping for something along the lines of Cool Runnings should probably look elsewhere.

Carell is best known for his comedic roles in movies like The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Anchorman, but he’s also done his fair share of straight acting, perhaps most notably in the 2006 drama Little Miss Sunshine. In Foxcatcher Carell looks almost unrecognizable in the role of du Pont, and the film has already received a great deal of praise in early reviews.

The first teaser trailer for Foxcatcher had a distinctly foreboding tone and the second was even ...

Here's What's New on Netflix for September 2014

28 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's almost September, which means a whole new slew of titles on Netflix! August proved pretty lucrative on the quality title front, but it looks as though September it's going to blow the rundown out of the water.

TV takes spotlight this month, with the latest full seasons of "The Walking Dead," "New Girl," "The League," "The Blacklist," "Arrow," "Bones," and "Parks and Recreation" primed and ready for streaming before their fall premieres. And fans still mourning the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" (in more ways than one) can rewatch the ninth and final season to their heart's content. Ah, memories. Showtime's recently departed "Californication" can be seen in its entirety (Seasons 1 -7) as well, starting September 1. That's a lot of TV.

Movie fans have plenty to look forward to from Netflix in September, too. Sam Raimi's undersung 1998 thriller "A Simple Plan" hits the streaming service September »

Million Dollar Arm Review

19 August 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Growing up, a staple of my movie diet was the numerous feel good sport movies coming from Disney. Cool Runnings, The Mighty Ducks, and many more, I lapped them all up, and with each one the House of Mouse proved their mastery of the formula, delivering an entertaining, heart warming tale every time. In recent years, it has been put on the back burner somewhat, as opposed to the 90's when every year we got the inspirational tale of a sports team, usually made up of kids or people seen as the absolute underdogs (and sometimes both), triumphing against the odds. Million Dollar Arm, based on a true story (a must for this type of movie), sees Disney trying their hand once again, with the tale of two young Indian men brought from their home country to the U.S. to play professional baseball. Jon Hamm takes the lead role of down on his luck, »
