New to Streaming: ‘Logan,’ ‘Good Morning,’ ‘The Lego Batman Movie,’ ‘The Survivalist,’ and More

19 May 2017 5:15 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Before I Fall (Ry Russo-Young)

Harold Ramis certainly didn’t invent it, but his Groundhog Day made the narrative loop device a mainstream mainstay, lovingly aped in everything from Source Code to Edge of Tomorrow to 50 First Dates. In Before I Fall, the loop treatment is utilized rather intelligently by director Ry Russo-Young, from Maria Maggenti screenplay adapted from Lauren Oliver‘s novel. – Dan M. (full review)

'Wakefield' Review: Bryan Cranston Shines as Man Who Blows Up His Life

17 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Ambition in film doesn't get enough credit these days – maybe because it's so rare. But the daring of writer-director Robin Swicord is all over Wakefield. Based on a 2008 short story by E.L. Doctorow (and before that, an 1835 tale from none other than Nathaniel Hawthorne), the film gets whisper-close to Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston), a New York lawyer who turns his life upside down. He's so fed up with the Groundhog Day-ish sameness of his routine – working in his Manhattan office, commuting home to his wife Diana (Jennifer Garner) and »

New White House Fence Jumper is a Repeat Offender

17 May 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

It's like the movie "Groundhog Day" at the White House -- the latest person to try hopping the fence also attempted a breach just one month earlier ... TMZ has learned. According to police documents, the woman who was busted Tuesday is 34-year-old Jessica Rhea Ford of La Vergne, Tn. Cops also caught her near the south fence on April 16 after recognizing her as a person of interest to the Secret Service. During Tuesday's arrest ... Ford »

Movie Review – Colossal (2016)

16 May 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Colossal, 2016.

Directed by Nacho Vigalondo.

Starring: Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Austin Stowell, and Tim Blake Nelson.

Synopsis:

A young woman discovers that when she walks through a certain park in her hometown a monster appears in downtown Seoul mimicking her every movement.

When a high-concept comedy delivers on its premise, it can be a truly wonderful thing. Successful examples that spring to mind include Groundhog Day, Bruce Almighty, Stranger Than Fiction, and I would even argue Snakes on a Plane! Colossal has an undeniably original premise (it’s essentially Godzilla meets Being John Malkovich), but despite the best efforts of the cast it’s a sadly unfocused and unsatisfying effort.

Having been unemployed for a year, Anne Hathaway’s character Gloria has been getting drunk more and more often as a way of coping. One day her boozy antics and increasing unreliability become too much for her very »

Live, Die, Repeat! Edge of Tomorrow 2 is a-go and it has an ‘interesting’ title

8 May 2017 3:38 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

There have been a few underrated blockbusters over the last few years but perhaps none have had the critical and audience response to them quite like Edge of Tomorrow. The 2014 action sci-fi extravaganza, directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) and starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, wasn’t a huge success when it first came out (grossing $370million from a $178million budget) but was a firm favourite of many.

It’s Groundhog Day-esque premise, which saw Cruise’s Maj. William Cage thrown into a war with seemingly impenetrable aliens, only to relive the same brutal battle over and over again – dying pretty much every time due to a strange time loop. His only hope of survival stands with Emily Blunt’s Rita Vrataski, who trains him to become a more effective killer and to help him stay alive.

The film had a great premise, great visual and a compelling, »

Edge Of Tomorrow 2 Has A Clever, But Obvious Title

8 May 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It's rare that a sci-fi movie leaves as much of an impression as Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, without being a sequel/prequel/remake or based on a comic book (it was an adaptation of a Japanese novel titled All You Need Is Kill). Written by Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), it stared Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, the former playing an unlikely soldier, who gets trapped in a time loop, repeating the same day every time he dies. Edge of Tomorrow is one of the more memorable alien invasion movies this decade, with its Groundhog Day elements allowing for all sorts of action, horrors, and humor.

Edge of Tomorrow had a title problem. I was working at a movie theater in 2014, and most guests would ask for a ticket for "that Tom Cruise movie." Others called it Live Die Repeat, which was actually the tagline from the poster. »

Edge Of Tomorrow Sequel Gets A Title, Tom Cruise And Emily Blunt To Return

7 May 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the surface, Edge of Tomorrow seemed like a gimmicky sci-fi film at best. Its Groundhog Day-esque premise didn’t do much to rope audiences in, and it also arrived at an odd time in Tom Cruise’s career, following a string of mediocre releases like Knight and Day, Rock of Ages and Oblivion – all fairly forgettable affairs that had everyone thinking that maybe, the movie star just wasn’t the box office draw that he used to be. That’s why it was such a surprise then when Doug Liman’s brainy thriller turned out to be one of the very best films of the year, delivering a gripping and clever ride that’s now sitting pretty at an impressive 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.

For those who haven’t seen the sci-fi gem yet, Edge of Tomorrow threw Cruise and Emily Blunt into “a full-scale alien war, with the »

Andie MacDowell on Hollywood Ageism, Nude Scenes and ‘Love After Love’

25 April 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Andie MacDowell waited until age 59 to do her first nude scene. As a grieving matriarch trying to get over her husband’s death and re-entering the dating scene in “Love After Love,” MacDowell has several sexual encounters in the indie drama that leave her emotionally and physically baring all.

“I kept making a joke to everybody that I waited until I fell apart before I took my clothes off,” the actress told Variety during an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival where “Love After Love” is debuting. The experience left her advising her actress daughters, Sarah Margaret Qualley and Rainey Qualley, not to wait as long before shedding their clothes on screen.

“I keep telling my girls, ‘you’re so beautiful, you should just do it,'” she says with a laugh. “‘Go. Do it. Don’t wait.'”

Ultimately, getting naked on screen didn’t feel as vulnerable as »

Insidious: Chapter 4 To Be Pushed Back To 2018

21 April 2017 3:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Let’s face it, by the fourth entry in a horror franchise, things are usually getting a bit ropey. Jaws: The Revenge featured a psychic shark out for revenge, Leprechaun went to space and even the Alien series tripped over itself with the rubbish Alien: Resurrection. So, it’s probably not a good sign that Universal Pictures has decided to boot Insidious: Chapter 4 from its plum Halloween 2017 slot to January 5th, 2018, which seems like a release date for films the studio have decided they’re going to try their best to ignore.

Ordinarily, creator Jason Blum (and his production company Blumhouse), would have every right to be down in the dumps about this. But it’s unlikely that there’ll be too many frowns at the office today, as the slot has been given to another of their films: Half to Death.

The top 25 films (that people have seen more than 5 times)

19 April 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 20, 2017

What tend to be the highest rated movies, where the criteria is said films have been watched at least five times?

One aside in a recent piece I penned at this site questioned whether films such as The Shawshank Redemption – for some time ranked as the best film of all time by popular vote at the IMDb – were favoured amongst those who’d seen it more than one time. I was questioning whether the films we tend to salute as the greatest – rather than our favourites – are the ones we tend to watch time and time again.

In the same article, for instance, I highlighted Schindler’s List, an excellent film, but not one I see too many people watching on six monthly rotation. That doesn’t make it a lesser film, rather, it’s the kind of movie that I’d imagine most have seen once or twice at best, »

Andy Karl, the star of the Broadway musical version of the hit movie “Groundhog Day,” will miss more performances following the knee injury he sustained during Friday’s performance just days before the show’s official opening night. On the instruction of his doctors, Karl will take off four performances this week to rest and continue the process of recuperating from the injury, which occurred late in the second act on Friday and forced the cancellation of a Saturday performance. Despite his injury, Karl performed at both the opening night on Monday and at Tuesday’s performance, reprising a role that Bill Murray originated. »
