The 14 Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Movies of 2014

18 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Thanks to the continued popularity of superhero movies and Ya literature adaptations and now the reignited interest in monsters, the joined genres of science fiction and fantasy are giving us what seems to be more releases than ever. It helps that computer effects are cheaper and easier for the benefit of indies and that so many makers of shorts see simple yet impressively visualized stories involving robots, dystopias and alien invasions as the perfect calling card for Hollywood. The plethora of works dealing with the unreal and as yet impossible means that while last year a Hobbit movie made the cut, this year the final chapter did not. It means that a new sci-fi film from Terry Gilliam, my longtime favorite director, also fell below our limit of the top 14. And it also means there was just too much out there for me to get around to. Apologies to Space Station 76, The Hunger Games »

Home Alone: the best Christmas movie of all time?

18 December 2014 3:10 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could 1990 comedy Home Alone be the best Christmas movie of all time? James lays out his argument...

Gremlins is great and Elf is ace. Bad Santa is bitchin' and The Muppets Christmas Carol is sensational, inspirational, celebrational and Muppetational. Die Hard is dead good, Miracle On 34th Street is magic and It's A Wonderful Life is truly, erm, wonderful.

None of them, though, can confidently state that they are the Best Christmas Movie of All Time. Only one film can claim that title, and that film is Home Alone, which is undoubtedly and without question the Best Christmas Movie of All Time. There's legitimate space for a debate as to whether Home Alone 2: Lost In New York deserves the prestigious label but, really, with Home Alone being the original article I think it's only right that we let it stand as number one.

There's a chance that this might be news to you, »

Golden Globes Nominations: Angelina Jolie and Bradley Cooper Among Shocking Snubs

11 December 2014 9:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The start of awards season can feel like Groundhog Day. Wednesday morning, the SAG Awards nominees. You go to bed and wake up and it's Thursday: the Golden Globes have been announced. The dawn skies are dotted with the fleecy phantoms of shiny trophies. But the game and the stakes all get bigger with the Globes, awarded annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Commentators instantly noticed the absence of Angelina Jolie, described this week in The New York Times as entering the awards season "like a queen" and being borne "on a tsunami of expectation." Her attendants will have »

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movie review: there and back again… at last

10 December 2014 9:27 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I fear that Peter Jackson has been suffering from a similar affliction to the dwarf king’s “dragon sickness”: a compulsive lust for epicness. I’m “biast” (pro): big Tolkien geek…

I’m “biast” (con): …but Jackson’s second trilogy has tried my fandom

I have read the source material many times (and I love it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The best thing about — finally! — reaching the third and last chapter of Peter Jackson’s ponderously epic eight-hour adaptation of the rather brief and chipper novel The Hobbit is that we may be assured that once the DVD hits next year, some intrepid fan is going to whittle the whole thing down into a breezy 105-minute phantom edit… like it should have been in the first place.

I am really looking forward to that.

A terrible affliction, er, afflicts the dwarf king Thorin here. »

Groundhog Day Being Turned Into A Musical

5 December 2014 9:05 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We've seen plenty of classic films remade, rebooted, and "re-imagined" over the entire history of film. One year "The Maltese Falcon" is released, but only five years later it's remade and renamed "Satan Met A Lady," only to be remade a third time because the original name sounded good, but this kid named Bogart wants to play the lead. It's almost like the entire entertainment industry is stuck in its own version of Groundhog Day now that you think about it. Which is really funny, because guess what's looking to come to a musical stage near you? I-t's Groundhog Day! THR says Tim Minchin, the lyricist and composer behind the Tony Award winning adaptation of Matilda, has been named the as the lucky guy to write the music and lyrics to a stage adaptation of the Harold Ramis/Bill Murray classic. The book will be written by Danny Rubin, the »

'Source Code 2' And 'The Crow' Get New Directors

3 December 2014 2:14 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Oh, so there's a "Source Code" sequel now? Uh, okay. You might wonder why there's a sequel to the decent, but not spectacular sci-fi movie, and all you have to do is look at the numbers. Internationally, the Duncan Jones-directed, Jake Gyllenhaal-starring film took home $92 million, outpacing the domestic haul of $52 million by a mile. Perhaps there's some gas left in the tank. They're gonna try to get it started anyway. "Source Code 2" is indeed really happening, with Anna Foerster slated to direct. She's done a mix of TV helming gigs ("Criminal Minds," "Outlander"), but also worked on the VFX teams for movies like "Pitch Black" and "Independence Day," so she'll be in familiar territory. Jones isn't involved with this effort, but screenwriter Ben Ripley returns to pen the script. No word yet on plot details, but it looks like someone else will have an "Edge Of Tomorrow"/"Groundhog Day"-esque experience. »

'Source Code 2' Coming But No Duncan Jones or Jake Gyllnehaal

2 December 2014 2:13 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

A few years ago, there was talk of turning the Groundhog Day style sci-fi thriller Source Code into a TV series. However, those plans haven't solidified, and now it sounds like the property will head to the big screen again. Variety reports Source Code 2 is in development with The Mark Gordon Company and Vendome Pictures producing the project again, and the original film's screenwriter Ben Ripley back working on the script. However, don't expect to see Jake Gyllenhaal or any of the original cast to return, and the same goes for director Duncan Jones, who is pretty busy in post-production on Warcraft now. Taking on directing duties this time will be Anna Forester, who has worked as second unit director on the films 10,000 B.C. and The Day After Tomorrow. On the small screen, she's been at the helm of episodes of "Criminal Minds" and "Army Wives," so she's ready »

Source Code 2 In Development; Director Signs On

2 December 2014 1:12 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Anna Foerster, a director on the recent Outlander series and director of photography on big flicks like Roland Emmerich's White House Down and Anonymous, has signed on to direct a sequel to Duncan Jones' science fiction thriller Source Code.

Original screenwriter Ben Ripley will pen the script for the next installment.

The original film, often jokingly (and unfairly) referred to as "Groundhog Day on a Train," followed an officer named Colter Stevens, who wakes up in someone else's body and discovers he's been tasked to find a bomber in only 8 minutes.

The original films, which starred Jake Gyllenhal, hardly lit the box office, but earned $54 million domestically on an estimated $30 million budget.

St Vincent review: 'There's something joyous about Bill Murray'

2 December 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Theodore Melfi; Screenwriter: Theodore Melfi; Starring: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Chris O'Dowd, Terrence Howard, Jaeden Lieberher; Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 12A

There is something joyous about Bill Murray in a bad mood from Ghostbusters through Groundhog Day to this comedy drama where he also brings stirring depths to the titular Vincent. It's a film cut to fit by indie writer/director Theodore Melfi and in playing to the strengths of his star, he manages to spin a rather obvious story into a fresh and edgy coming-of-age yarn.

Jaeden Lieberher features as 12-year-old Oliver, an efficiently pintsized straight-man who moves in next door to Vin with his adoptive mother Maggie (played with surprisingly gentle humour by Melissa McCarthy). Maggie works long shifts at the hospital and turns to Vin in desperation when she needs a last-minute babysitter; desperate, because with his bitter sarcasm, penchant for booze, gambling habit »

Bill Murray in St Vincent: the grouch does it (all over) again

30 November 2014 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A grumpy old loner who comes to embrace the spirit of friendship and community? It’s like Groundhog Day. Well, it is and it isn’t

Bill Murray interviewed

• St Vincent reviewed

Does anyone remember The Hidden, a nifty, nasty and inventive 1987 sci-fi B movie with Kyle MacLachlan? It’s about an alien organism of maximum hostility and violence that can transfer itself from one human host to another, each time discarding the previous used-up host-corpse. And it never dies: it just reappears in another guise.

This reminds me a great deal of St Vincent, Bill Murray’s brand-new old-codger movie. The story of a kid named Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher) and his newly divorced mother (Melissa McCarthy) who move in next door to a grouchy old alcoholic and degenerate gambler (that’ll be Bill), it is the umpteenth retread of a venerable and creaky Hollywood standard that reboots itself incessantly in ever-changing forms. »

What Movie Have You Watched the Most? The Hitfix Staff Answers

27 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Everybody has that one movie that they've watched so many times, "knowing it by heart" doesn't even begin to describe the relationship. It's the film that you drop everything to watch when it comes on TV, or that you bought and wore out the VHS copy, and then the DVD and the Blu-Ray... and you're still happy to watch it again on Netflix. Maybe it all started with what your family liked to watch (or what they hated) or what ended up in your stocking at holiday time, or what you fell in love with at the theater. Below, the HitFix editorial staff shares its most-watched movies of all time. What is yours? Tell us in the comments! Donna Dickens "Titanic" I was that fourteen year old girl.

Video Game Review – Randal’s Monday

20 November 2014 1:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dave Davies reviews Randal’s Monday…

From the out it’s clear that Kevin Smith has had little to no influence on Randal’s Monday except allowing the team at Nexus Game Studios to use his characters of Randal, Jay and Silent Bob. Tellingly twitter maestro Smith has not mentioned the title once since release, and having played it, I understand why he’s more excited by his cameo in Lego Batman 3.

That’s not to say it’s a bad game, good point and click adventure games are few and far between now, especially ones created outside of a Kickstarter campaign, but sadly Randal’s Monday disappears into it’s own geek world, pop culture references clutter the locations and self-referential dialogue wears thin before the half way mark in the game.

Borrowing heavily from Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day, Randal is stuck repeating the same day over and »

No Good Deed review: Idris Elba exudes menace in undemanding thriller

19 November 2014 7:56 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Sam Miller; Screenwriter: Aimee Lagos; Starring: Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson, Leslie Bibb; Running time: 84 mins; Certificate: 15

Sometimes you fancy the finest caviar known to humanity. Other times you fancy some greasy fish and chips. No Good Deed belongs in the latter category. It's an American thriller wrapped up in a day old newspaper, unashamedly devoid of artistic pretensions and providing a very palatable, unchallenging experience that rises above mediocrity thanks to a killer performance by Idris Elba.

The Luther star exudes a mesmerising sense of menace as Colin, described by a judge as a "charming, malignant narcissist", who escapes from incarceration, crashes his car and seeks refuge at a nearby house. He plays all innocent and nice to fool middle-aged mother Terry (Taraji P Henson) while her husband is away, but the arrival of her seductive (and thoroughly one dimensional) friend Meg (Leslie Bibb) threatens to trigger Colin's malevolence. »

‘Randal’s Monday’ Review (PC)

13 November 2014 8:14 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

If there is one thing that geeks like it’s a reference to their favourite game, television show or film.  Randal’s Monday is a new Point & Click adventure game that is full of them, everywhere you look you will see an Easter egg trying to get your attention.  Taking an old fashioned style to the adventure game it isn’t exactly one that fits the Telltale Games model of being overly emotional about everything, this is one that looks for laughs and when Jeff Anderson and Jason Mewes are in it, fans of Clerks start to take notice.

Jeff Anderson voices the part of Randal Hicks, a man very much like his Clerks character and Mewes is of course, Jay.  Silent Bob does make an appearance too but is not voiced by Kevin Smith (and yes, Bob does provide his sage like advice).

Back to the game though, Randal »

30 Laughable 'Oops' Moments From Your Favorite Comedies

13 November 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's one simple reason we watch comedies: to laugh. So, let's face it, a comedy doesn't need a perfect plot, sharp editing, or great camerawork to be considered a classic. But that doesn't mean movie mistakes are any less intriguing. Great comedies like "Groundhog Day" and "Anchorman" can easily brush off the occasional continuity error, though there's no guarantee that we, as viewers, will just overlook them.

In that spirit, check out the gallery below for 30 comedy "oops" moments.. As usual, all photos come courtesy of MovieMistakes.com. »

Randal’s Monday Review

12 November 2014 6:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in the early 2000s, if you had asked me whether or not I would’ve enjoyed playing an old-school point-and-click adventure game featuring Randal from Kevin Smith’s cult classic Clerks, my answer would have been a resounding, “Absolutely.” Fusing the humor and wit of Smith’s beloved comedy with my singular passion of gaming would have been a no-brainer. Currently, however, I’m not sure why Nexus Game Studios felt the need to revisit characters from the Clerks universe, and transplant them into a world with an inordinate amount of pop culture references.

Randal’s Monday follows Randal; a selfish, lazy, kleptomaniac. As we’re first introduced to the character, we find him appropriately getting wasted with his best friend Matt and his fiancé as the couple celebrates their engagement at a local pub. After a heavy night of drinking, Matt loses both his wallet and ring, the »

Z Nation, Ep. 1.09, “Die, Zombie, Die…Again”: Another example of show’s poor footing

8 November 2014 7:31 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Z Nation, Season 1, Episode 9, “Die, Zombie, Die…Again”

Written by Dan Merchant

Directed by Tim Andrew

Airs Fridays at 10pm Est on Syfy

Z Nation came out of the gates in its first few episodes with unapologetic force. Seemingly promising a series that stood firmly against anything melodramatic or clichéd by actively making fun at every turn, the show appeared as though it would be a great palate cleanser for those who are sick of stories about the undead. Unfortunately, the episodes that comprise the last half of this first season have been fairly meager attempts at achieving drama or tension, and “Die, Zombie, Die…Again” is yet another disappointing installment.

Mack and Addy return to our television screens after splitting from the main group of survivors and not being present in the last episode. Addy is still plagued with confusing and terrifying visions of zombies and gore, all while »

X Factor can do better when it comes to mental health stigma | Pete Etchells

8 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Lola Saunders rendition of Crazy on the show last week, which featured dancers in straitjackets, highlights how everyone needs to try harder if we want to end mental health stigma

One thing that I dont understand about why mental health stigma still exists is that theres nothing difficult to understand about mental health. Its discussed frequently in the media, and there always seem to be high-profile charity campaigns trying to raise awareness. Despite this though, it feels like were in a bizarre version of Groundhog Day: a constant and repetitive battle against mental health misconceptions and misrepresentations. Last year, Asda was slammed for selling mental patient fancy dress costumes for Halloween. This year, Jokers Masquerade was criticised by MP Norman Lamb for selling Skitzo costumes. And then theres the X Factor.

Last week, Lola Saunders was voted off the show, after performing a cover of Gnarls Barkleys Crazy on the Halloween-themed show. »

Meet the Cutest Cat of Awards Season: Felix From St. Vincent

31 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

All the promotion for St. Vincent has centered around Bill Murray. It makes sense: He's the star of the movie; and he's Bill Murray, the internet's favorite uncle. However, those who've seen St. Vincent know Murray isn't the breakout. And, no, it's not the little kid. It's the cat. Murray's character Vincent has a cat named Felix, and it's the best cat, full stop. He's just a wonderful, fluffy, lush Persian with a face so grumpy, it makes Bill Murray at the beginning of Groundhog Day look like Bill Murray at the end of Groundhog Day. Vulture has exclusive high-definition screenshots of the cat and an interview with Steve McAuliff, the man tasked with the surely wonderful job of training this angel with fur.   Can you tell me a little bit about the cat? There are two cats. They’re doubles of each other. They’re Persians named Teddy and Jagger. »
