'Carol,' 'Inside Out' and 10 other Cannes 2015 films ready for Oscar's closeup

7 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — Awards season is no stranger to Cannes. From "Amour" to "The Tree of Life" to "No Country For Old Men" to "The Pianist" to "The Piano," every year there seems to be a player or two that pokes its head out from the crowded Croisette and into Oscar's waiting arms. This year's potential players may not include a true Best Picture contender, but they are evidence enough that the festival's presence will be felt throughout the upcoming campaign. Before you start second guessing which films have a shot and which don't, remember the actions of this year's Hollywood-influenced competition jury. The Coen brothers, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller and the Guillermo Del Toro, among others, awarded some interesting prizes that will absolutely affect the race. The critical kudos are important, too (as are those of us who cover the beat on a regular basis and took in this year's slate »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Hanks and Ryan Take Forever to Realize That Men are from Seattle and Women from Baltimore

24 May 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sleepless in Seattle': Meg Ryan 'Sleepless in Seattle' review: Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in an affair to forget In Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors: Red, the last installment of his "Three Colors" trilogy, the word "magic" is never bandied about. No need to. Magic is just about everywhere in that lyrical tale about love and fate. On the other hand, the word "magic" seems to crop up every other minute in writer-director Nora Ephron's Sleepless in Seattle. Ephron and fellow Oscar-nominated screenwriters Jeff Arch and David S. Ward (plus an uncredited Delia Ephron) were apparently trying to create screen magic through the power of suggestion. If you repeat it often enough... Following in the footsteps of Claude Lelouch's 1974 hit And Now My Love, with added touches borrowed from Leo McCarey's 1957 romance classic An Affair to Remember (itself a remake of McCarey's own 1939 Love Affair), Nora Ephron »

Oscars next for Cannes winners Rooney Mara, Emmanuelle Bercot and Vincent Lindon?

24 May 2015 2:52 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

“Chewie, we’re back for Episode 3 of the Flickering Myth Movie Show.”

In the May edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, we go trailer crazy, disecting and discussing the latest teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and having an alternative look at the cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

We’re also looking at the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Who is in the new line-up? How many more gems does Thanos need for his funky gauntlet? What can we now expect leading into Captain America: Civil War?

And if that wasn’t enough Marvel fun, our very own Luke Owen sits down with Daredevil star Charlie Cox to chat about the Avengers, who he’d like the Man Without Fear to team up with and what can we expect from the just-announced Season 2.

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »

Will the Joker be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

29 April 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: Potential Spoilers Below!

Following the rumours that Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne/Batman will feature in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, some new rumours have surfaced about the current filming in Toronto and how it affects Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to Latino-Review (who have been very spotty as of late), Affleck is in Toronto to film an extra scene with Jared Leto’s Joker which will be a flashback sequence in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The site claims that the scene they will be shooting sees The Joker use a crowbar to beat Jason Todd/Robin to death, which is why he is in prison during Suicide Squad.

This ties into previous rumours that Jason Todd will already be dead by the time Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice roles around (along with Jim Gordon), as well as other speculation that this version of »

25 underrated 1990s movie soundtracks

28 April 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Muppet Treasure Island to Speed, we take a look at the 90s soundtracks that deserve another listen...

Ah, the 1990s. The decade that brought us The Lion King. Titanic. Quentin Tarantino. That wordless bathroom scene in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks. Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. In the Mood for Love.

It was a good 10 years for film music, no doubt.

But scratch the surface of 1991 through 1999 and there are tons of good scores ready to spring a surprise on your ears. Some were attached to sorely underrated movies, others were overshadowed by wildly successful ones, and some have simply been forgotten in the passage of time.

Here, in no particular order, are the top 25 underappreciated film soundtracks from the 1990s.

1. Chaplin - John Barry

Okay, let's start with a big one. Richard Attenborough. Robert Downey Jr. John Barry. »

Henry Cavill says Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a sequel to Man of Steel

22 April 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There has been a lot of backlash from fans of the Last Son of Krypton that The Dark Knight is hijacking his sequel in order to make room for the build to the Justice League. However, Henry Cavill has spoken out against this idea, and says that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a sequel to Man of Steel.

“I’ve only seen a little bit of Adr stuff, but that’s it, and that wasn’t even in colour,” he told MTV News. “I’m hoping to see it [the whole movie] some time this year, for a friends and family screening or something. But I really know nothing about what the finished product looks like. I wouldn’t call this a Superman sequel. This is Batman versus Superman, so it’s a separate entity altogether. It’s introducing the Batman character, and expanding upon this universe, which was kicked off by Man of Steel. »
