Den Of Geek films of the year: Hunt For The Wilderpeople

19 December 2016 9:08 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Dec 27, 2016

Taika Waititi's delightful comedy-adventure Hunt For The Wilderpeople found a spot in our top 10 films of 2016...

As is tradition at this time of the year, our writers have been voting for their favourite movies. In fourth? It's Hunt For The Wilderpeople...

4. Hunt For The Wilderpeople

There’s much to be said for taking a bit of creative license when adapting a novel for the screen. With Hunt For The Wilderpeople, New Zealand actor and filmmaker Taika Waititi takes a few tonal liberties with Barry Crump’s best-selling novel Wild Pork And Watercress, and in the process creates a winning comedy drama with his own streak of quirky humour.

Where has peril and unpredictability gone in modern movies?

23 November 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Nov 28, 2016

When was the last time you saw a major blockbuster and felt real concern for the fate of the main characters?

This feature contains spoilers for Executive Decision, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Mission: Impossible and, er, Dad’s Army.

In the mid-1990s, before the internet could spoil it for them, people piled in to see the still very enjoyable thank you very much Executive Decision. It’s a fun action movie, with Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal getting top billing in the movie. But there’s little suggestion that anything particularly radical was lying ahead. Yet in hindsight, there’s something far more surprising than perhaps it was given credit for even then.

For, surprisingly early in the film, Executive Decision is one of those rare films that’s willing to kill off one of its stars, Mr Seagal in this case (something he »

Michael Chapman Talks Restoring ‘Taxi Driver’ and the Problem with Modern Cinematography

17 November 2016 9:16 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Had he only worked for a period of roughly ten years, Michael Chapman would still be among the best-regarded cameramen of his time. How else to qualify the man who acted as operator on Klute, Husbands, The Landlord, The Godfather and Jaws, as well as cinematographer on The Last Detail, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Hardcore, The Last Waltz, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers? (The decades-blurring Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid is no small achievement, either.) But then he’d go on to helm All the Right Moves (a key early point in Tom Cruise’s career), then photographed (to name but a few) The Fugitive, Scorsese’s video for Michael Jackson’s “Bad,” and, of course, Space Jam. How many people in his trade can lay claim to that wide a berth?

Chapman’s been retired for nearly ten years — his last feature, Bridge to Terabithia, was released »

The Arrival: exploring a gloriously odd 90s sci-fi film

31 October 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Nov 2, 2016

Before Arrival there was Charlie Sheen in The Arrival. Ryan takes a look at an unusual 90s sci-fi film...

When it came to sci-fi movies, 1996 was a crowded year: at the high end of the budget spectrum we had the invasion movies Independence Day and Mars Attacks; towards the middle we had John Carpenter's disappointing Snake Plissken sequel Escape From La, while Rutger Hauer starred in the cheap and cheerful Crossworlds and the brilliantly titled Omega Doom.

Throw in the startlingly botched Island Of Doctor Moreau, Star Trek: First Contact and Stuart Gordon's fun sci-fi oddity Space Truckers, and you have a busy 12 months in genre movies. Somewhat lost in the static was The Arrival, a nifty genre thriller which had the misfortune of coming out just a few weeks before the bigger, splashier Independence Day. A more modest and quirkier movie than Roland Emmerich's invasion flick, »

We used to see J.K. Simmons in film after film and happily say, “Hey, it’s that guy again!” Now we see J.K. Simmons in film after film and just as happily say, “Hey, it’s J.K. Simmons again!”

Since winning the Best Supporting Actor Oscar last year for his blistering performance in Whiplash, the 61-year-old character actor has worked at an even more furious pace than before that Oscar triumph.

He has a key role in this month’s thriller The Accountant. There’s also La La Land, a Hollywood-set musical fantasy by Whiplash director Damien Chazelle, which comes out in December, and the true story of the Boston Marathon bombing, Patriots Day, which comes out early next year.

Hunt For The Wilderpeople review

6 September 2016 8:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Published Date  Friday, September 16, 2016 - 06:35

Other directors might have tried to make a grittier adaptation of the novel Wild Pork And Watercress, written by the best-selling New Zealand author, Barry Crump. But rather than try to emulate Crump’s spare, masculine storytelling, writer-director Taika Waititi gently bends the story's tone to his own quirky sensibility.

The result is another film about misunderstood outsiders from the filmmaker behind such brilliantly offbeat comedies as Eagle Vs Shark and What We Do In The Shadows; in Waititi’s hands, Hunt For The Wilderpeople becomes an eccentric outdoors adventure with welcome splashes of laugh-out-loud comedy. It’s like a blend of Waititi’s 2010 hit Boy and 1982 Stallone joint, First Blood - with maybe a bit of Harold And Maude and Thelma And Louise thrown in for good measure.

Fast 5: The Rock's role was originally written for Tommy Lee Jones

23 August 2016 11:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 24, 2016

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's beefy role in Fast Five? That was originally written for Tommy Lee Jones, Vin Diesel reveals...

Released in 2011, Fast Five marked a major turning point in the Fast & Furious franchise. Street racing and tinkering with modified cars took a back seat to rippling muscles and high-octane action - and audiences loved it. The Fast series has been on an upward trajectory ever since in financial terms, with each sequel out-performing the last at the box office.

That change in fortunes is thanks in no small part to Dwayne Johnson, who made his debut as the towering lawman Luke Hobbs in Fast Five. But according to Vin Diesel, the part of Hobbs wasn't written for Johnson at all, but veteran actor Tommy Lee Jones. During a video posted on Facebook, Diesel explained that Johnson's casting in Fast Five came as a result of feedback from fans. »

7 July 2016 4:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) is busy in production on Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok. If you're not already familiar with his brand of comedy you can get a taste of what to expect from Thor 3 with Hunt for the Wilderpeople, which is in theaters now and expanding. The hilarious adventure follows a boy (breakout star Julian Dennison) and his foster uncle (Sam Neill) who become the subject of a manhunt after they get stranded in the New Zealand wilderness. This is one of, if not the, funniest films of the year to date and will probably land on many a top ten list when things shake out in December. Thor: Ragnarok Directer Determined To Make Thunder God More Than Just Abs One part buddy comedy, one part coming-of-age, and all around balls-to-the-wall adventure, "The whole style is lifted from the '70s and '80s," Waititi »

Blockbuster movies and the continued trouble with stakes

When was the last time you went into the final act of a big blockbuster and didn't have any idea how things would turn out?

This article contains spoilers for:

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice (major)

Super 8 (middling)

Back To The Future (mild)

Next week’s National Lottery numbers * (mild)

Toy Story 3 (mild)

Skyfall (mildish)

The Fugitive (middling)

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (middling)

* Just seeing if anyone reads this bit

It’s an oft-quoted example, granted, but in the midst of Back To The Future’s time travel, and the rush to get the DeLorean up to 88mph and to put the world right, the motivation of the lead character was a simple one: to make sure his parents stayed together.

No matter what Doc Brown said, it wasn’t about the end of the world or a paradox bringing everything crashing down. »

Oscar Flashback: Leonardo DiCaprio Started His Long Academy Awards Career in 1994

26 February 2016 5:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Leonardo DiCaprio is a favorite to win the Oscar for Best Actor at Sunday night's award ceremony for his turn in The Revenant, and while many people are referring to it at "Leo's year," it's hardly the first time he's been up for the highly coveted award. In fact, this marks DiCaprio's fifth nomination. So where did it all start?
