Project Almanac Is a Good B-Movie That Hits Its Marks

17 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Frank Sinatra (via Paul Anka) is probably the only person who has ever had too few regrets to mention; the rest of us find solace in fantasies of going back and doing it again. The smart and super-slick teen time-machine picture Project Almanac is the latest incarnation of this would-coulda-shoulda pipe-dream — a movie so knowing that its characters reference Looper, Groundhog Day, and maybe five other films that lay out the pros and cons of rewriting the past. They’ve seen what happens but they never learn!The visual wrinkle in Project Almanac is that it’s shot with one or two video cameras wielded by the characters, which struck me as dumb (as well as nausea-inducing) at the start but proves to be a cool device for our heroes to look at what they’ve just done and go back and do it differently.

18 hours ago | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

 

After a successful run last of week of "In Case Of No Emergency: The Films Of Ruben Ostlund," the Austin Film Society is adding an encore screening of last year's acclaimed Force Majeure this evening at the Marchesa. This is likely your last chance to catch it on the big screen, so don't miss out before the film is released February 10 on home video.

On Sunday evening, fans of Euro exploitation will want to head to the Afs Screening Room where longtime film collector Fred Frey will screen a secret double feature of rare 16mm films from his private collection. The films "will interest those who relish obscure delights." The Jacques Rivette "Essential Cinema" series closes out on Thursday at the Marchesa with a 35mm print of 1981's Le Pont Du Nord

Over at the Violet Crown Cinema, the "'Round Midnight" series continues this weekend with Danny Boyle's stylish debut Shallow Grave, »

Exclusive Cool Video: Top 10 Time Travel Flicks

29 January 2015 3:52 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

What would you do if you could go back in time and change history? Would you try to see your family like in Back To The Future or would you mess with sporting events like in Back To The Future Part II? Would you become a better person like in Groundhog Day or try to make money disposing of bodies like in Looper? The possibilities are endless and that is one of the reasons time travel makes for great movies. Project Almanac hits theaters today and brings to us yet another entry in the time »

Project Almanac Review

29 January 2015 2:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The found footage genre is a peculiar one. It rests its laurels on building realism through the urgency and immediacy of the filmed footage. However, quite often, the characters in these films go to such extreme lengths to shoot this footage that one wonders why they are committing to capturing so much extraneous material. Every so often, a genre film will use the recordings in a chilling or original way. However, much of the time, having a character record all of the events on a video camera comes off as a contrived gimmick. The only way a film of this sort can be successful is if the story would not have worked as effectively with a regular, multi-camera staging.

The biggest problem with Project Almanac, a new sci-fi drama aimed at teens, is how rarely its writers convince us that the story should be told through the immediate presence of a video camera. »

Nominated for Nothing: 'Love Is Strange'

Hugh Grant Turns From Writer To Teacher In Trailer For The Rewrite

23 January 2015 12:56 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For his next romcom, Hugh Grant has reunited with director Marc Lawrence to bring his foppish British charms to another light caper, The Rewrite. This collaborative duo are more prolific than you might think, having previously worked on Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics and Did You Hear About the Morgans? Which leads to the inevitable question, will their next affair venture into new territory?

Ahead of its February release a new trailer has arrived online – so we can hazard a guess at how this might turn out. Keeping in the tradition of the roles he tackled in the aforementioned movies, Grant plays a stubborn, out-of-sorts type who rallies against ‘the man’ and pursues a woman who’s kooky and unorthodox (i.e. she’s probably got dreams.) This time he’s out-of-work screenwriter, Keith Michaels, who once won an award and has since fallen on his luck. So, when »

'The Rewrite' Trailer Starring Hugh Grant

23 January 2015 12:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A down-on-his-luck writer lands a teaching job that could change his life in the first trailer for The Rewrite. Hugh Grant reunites with director Marc Lawrence for the fourth time, following their collaborations on Did You Hear About the Morgans?, Music and Lyrics and Two Weeks Notice. Their latest dramatic comedy delves into the world of screenwriting, following a once-famous scribe.

Once upon a time, Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant - About a Boy, Love Actually) was an Award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, but divorce and a string of unsuccessful films have left him with nothing but bad debts and blank pages. So when his agent arranges a job as guest screenwriting professor at a remote university in upstate New York, a desperate Keith can't say no. Initially hoping to give minimal effort to actual teaching so he can focus on his next script, Keith unexpectedly finds himself becoming invested in his students lives, »

'The Flash': Grant Gustin on Old Enemies, New Loves and a 'Groundhog Day' Homage!

20 January 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Hope you're ready The Flash fans, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

The CW’s comic-book drama is back tonight with a brand-new episode after more than a month off and if you’ve been going through withdrawals, we don’t blame you. Plus, we’re still listing off all those unanswered questions following the bonkers winter finale – Is Harrison Wells really Reverse-Flash? Is Barry done with Iris? Is Eddie close to unmasking The Flash?

Watch: Oh No! 'The Flash's' Barry Allen Has an Identity Crisis

Fortunately, tonight’s return is a doozy, as it marks the anticipated Prison Break reunion between Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell as The Flash foes Captain Cold and Heat Wave. Considering all the drama Barry has to deal with already, dealing with angry probably isn’t the best.

We recently caught up with Grant Gustin, the lovable star of The Flash, for the lowdown »

‘Edge of Tomorrow’ reunion coming via an 80s drug film

17 January 2015 8:47 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It seems like the success both critically and commercially for Edge of Tomorrow has got Tom Cruise and Doug Liman thinking about their next move together. This time though — they are leaving out the Groundhog Day aspect of the story.

The Hollywood Reporter reported on Wednesday that Cruise and Liman are set to re-team for Mena, a 1980s drug thriller being made by Universal and CrossCreek. The project was originally being eyed by Ron Howard to direct, who was attached to direct the project when Universal picked it up as a spec by Gary Spinelli for a reported $1 million.

The film tells the story of Barry Seal, a fired Twa pilot who became a major drug smuggler for the Medellin Cartel. He was later recruited by the DEA and CIA to provide intelligence, with his work tying to the Iran Contra scandal. He was assassinated by Colombians in 1986.

Liman is currently finishing up the documentary, »

Rope A Dope 2 Is One Of The Best American Fight Comedies Ever Made. Watch It Now.

13 January 2015 3:30 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

It seems reductive to say that Rope A Dope 2 is the best thing to emerge from The Stunt People community to date. It's true, I think, and given that The Stunt People have been very good at what they do for a very long time that's certainly saying something. But this is more than that. A bunch more. It's one of the best martial arts comedies ever to emerge from North America on any level - whether big budget or indie - and judged on any basis. Direction, performance, choreography ... everything is simply fantastic.For those unfamiliar, the original Rope A Dope was essentially a martial arts Groundhog Day with leading man Eric Jacobus living the same sequence of events over and over until...

'Groundhog Day's' Harold Ramis to receive WGA Awards lifetime achievement award

13 January 2015 1:53 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Harold Ramis, the man behind "Ghostbusters" and "Groundhog Day," passed away last February at the age of 69. Like many, the Writers Guild of America hasn't forgotten the impact he made over a 38-year career. The organization announced Tuesday that they will honor the writer/director/actor with the WGA's 2015 Laurel Award for Screenwriting Achievement at the Writers Guild Awards ceremony next month. Ramis' wife, Erica Mann Ramis, and family will accept the award on his behalf. In a release, WGAw Vice President Howard A. Rodman noted, "Harold Ramis changed the face of comedy. His death last year deprived us of his unique way of seeing the world, at once hilarious and wise. From his early work with 'National Lampoon' and 'Sctv' through 'Animal House,' 'Meatballs,' 'Caddyshack' and 'Ghostbusters,' Ramis' voice was strong, clear, outrageous in all the best ways.

The Writers Guild of America West has selected the late Harold Ramis as the recipient of its Laurel Award for screenwriting achievement.

“His unrealized projects – an adaptation of ‘Confederacy of Dunces,’ a biopic about Emma Goldman – leave us aching with an anticipation that will never be fulfilled,” Rodman added. “And then there’s ‘Groundhog Day,’ one of modern cinema’s few true masterworks, a film that is impeccably crafted, morally astute, »
