We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best.
2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

The Flickering Myth writing team give their thoughts on the leaked Deadpool test footage…
Perhaps the biggest surprise coming out of San Diego Comic-Con was the leaked test footage for the long-gestating Deadpool movie, directed by Tim Miller and featuring voice work by Ryan Reynolds. It was taken down, put back up, taken back down and then put up by Miller himself.
Watch the footage in glorious HD here.
So, what did you writing and editorial team think of the footage?
Oliver Davis: Bizarre. I like the idea of the super(aware)hero, but whenever I’ve picked up the books in the past, they’re too self-referential for me. Which is weird, because I love stuff like that usually. »

Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. This month marks the 20th anniversary of Cameron Diaz' movie career. She made her debut opposite Jim Carrey in The Mask, released July 29, 1994. Since then she has had a very interesting run in Hollywood, and yet she tends to get little respect because she's a blonde bombshell with maybe more bad rom-coms on her resume than revered classics. But she's got a Marilyn Monroe thing going on where she's definitely smarter and more talented than she comes across through the characters she plays. Diaz may still be best known for There's Something About Mary and that iconic "hair gel" moment. This weekend she's back in another comedy...

Cameron Diaz returns to the big screen on July 18 with Sex Tape, a raunchy comedy about a married couple who wake up to discover that the wild sex tape they made the night before has gone missing, leading to madcap search around town for its whereabouts. The movie not only reunites Diaz with her ‘Bad Teacher’ co-star (Jason Segal) and director (Jake Kasdan), but also with the genre – the screwball comedy -- that made Diaz a household name twenty years ago. 20!
Indeed, it was twenty summers ago when Diaz made Jim Carrey’s eye pop out of his head in her film debut, 1994’s The Mask, and we’ve been transfixed with the former model ever since. Sure, Diaz may have had her share of summer flops (Knight & Day, anyone?), but, for the most part, the California native has owned the summer movie house with an array of box office »

Chuck Russell - director of A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and The Mask - dropped in on The Cinefamily here in Los Angeles for a 35mm presentation of The Blob. The midnight event was co-hosted by myself and the Friday Night Frights team and was led by a Q&A with Russell who reflected on the 1988 remake he directed and co-penned with Frank Darabont (who we did reached out to, but was unavailable to swing by). You can now watch that Q&A via the video we've provided for you here. Watch the whole thing or play it in the backgroun and listen while you work.

Even if she hasn't made too many films worth watching in the last few years, Cameron Diaz is and always will be a hottie. Whether it be her debut in The Mask, her underoos in Charlie's Angels, or her sexpot turn in Bad Teacher, Diaz has made a career out of being sexy. But, we have yet to see much aside from her having sex with the hood of a car in last year's The Counselor. While Jake Kasdan's Sex Tape looks like a fun, raunchy comedy, the odds of actually getting to see some nudity from »

Close your eyes and imagine a simpler time. 20 years ago, when there were only 60 channels on cable TV and no such thing as an iPhone, or an iPad, or an iAnything. It's the Summer of 1994, emojis are an unknown entity, and Butterfinger BBs are plentiful. Sheryl Crow is spinning on your walkman, and life is good. Progress is important. Over the past 20 years, countless inventions and ideas have come to fruition and gone on to change our daily lives for the better. But there's also nothing wrong with indulging in a little nostalgia. Especially if the memory lane you're casually »

A new red band trailer for Columbia Pictures’ big comedy Sex Tape starring Cameron Diaz (The Mask) and Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) has been released to further whet the appetite before its July release date.
In the film, when Jay (Segel) and Annie (Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense – but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. To kick things up a notch, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea – until they discover that their most private video is no longer private. With their reputations on the line, they know they’re just one click away from being laid bare to the world… but as their race to reclaim their video leads to a night they’ll never forget, »

The first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To hit the Internet this week, and in an unusual move, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels hit the talk show circuit to promote it. It's been a long time since either the Farrelly Brothers or Carrey made a great movie, but hopefully going back to something that made us love them to begin with will revitalize them.
All the talk about Dumb and Dumber To has gotten us thinking about the original, »
With a potential comeback on the cards for Jim Carrey, Rob looks through the hidden gems of his career.
Alrighty then. To get straight to the point – Jim Carrey’s career hasn’t been up to much lately has it? Certainly as leading man, at least. His last big-hitter was 2009’s A Christmas Carol, while his most recent leading role was 2011’s Mr Popper’s Penguins.
His latest performance outside of cameos was an interesting part in Kick Ass 2 though, a promising turn which left many audience-members wanting more from his character. With the trailer dropping recently for Dumb And Dumber To as well, the hints of a comeback for the iconic performer have continued to grow.
There’s been more positivity towards Dumb And Dumber To in comments than we might have expected (although this welcoming response was far from unanimous), which is undeniably a positive sign for the fledgling star. »
The Flickering Myth writing and editorial team give their thoughts on the trailer for Dumb and Dumber To….
It may be 20 years after the original, but Harry and Lloyd are back for Dumb and Dumber To, the trailer for which was released yesterday.
But what did our writing team think?
Ozzy Armstrong: I might be one of the few people born in the mid 80’s who didn’t enjoy the first film so a sequel seems completely redundant to me. Besides not liking the first Dumb and Dumber, I’m not a massive a fan of Jim Carrey either – so that probably doesn’t help.
As far as the trailer itself goes, I’m assuming that all of the “funny bits” were on show. This only makes me think that the end result will most likely be a big steaming unfunny turd of a picture. In short, I really couldn’t care less. »

It’s been twenty years since Jim Carrey had his annus mirabilis in 1994 when, seemingly in a matter of hours, he became the biggest comedy star in the world. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was followed by The Mask, before he rounded up the year very nicely with Dumb & Dumber, a film that could trouble Airplane! for a place at the top of the comedy tree.
Carrey became the biggest name in comedy for over ten years, but the two fellows responsible for Dumb & Dumber didn’t fare too badly either. The Farrelly Brothers’ follow-up, Kingpin (1996), was even funnier, though the box office returns were diminished. Their audience returned in droves in 1998 for their biggest hit, There’s Something About Mary, which made superstars out of Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller, and made men across the world take extra care when pulling up the zip on their trousers.

Released in December 1994, Dumb and Dumber cemented Jim Carrey as a rising comedy star. He began the year with the unexpected success of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and showed his versatility with the zany adventure The Mask during the summer, but it was his collaboration with costar Jeff Daniels and directing duo Peter and Bobby Farrelly that proved Carrey was no fluke, elevating the art of physical comedy to new heights. Now, 20 years later, Carrey and Daniels have reteamed with the Farrelly brothers to make a sequel, Dumb and Dumber To. Harry's "sheepdog" is back -- see the poster -- and the pair are again heading on a road trip. This time they're in search of a child Harry never knew he had, a daughter who is now an adult. Really, though, that's...

If you're as excited as I am for "Dumb and Dumber To," then any news from the production is good news. And today we are graced with the first official poster from the sequel to the 1994 comedy classic.
Yes! That's Harry and Lloyd in the Shaggin' Wagon- their trusty steed from the first film, long thought to be gone forever when Lloyd traded it away for that kid's mini-moped. But alas, I guess they don't mind trading in the fuel efficiency of the moped for the comfort of Harry's suped-up dog-grooming van.
Carrey has told various outlets that he was compelled to return to the Dumb Universe by the clamoring of fans who loved the original, and a desire to bring pure, »

After the curious case of Edge Of Tomorrow’s surprise critical popularity, Rob investigates a strange Hollywood happening…
The release of Edge Of Tomorrow - which opened in the Us this past weekend, following its bow in the UK a week earlier - has brought, not for the first time, a strange Hollywood trend to light. And it's this: do we trust big stars to make decent movies anymore?
Many people, this writer included, took a lot of convincing to venture out and see Tom Cruise in a hugely expensive sci-fi spectacular (notwithstanding the fact that Cruise has fine form in science fiction). The film in question, Edge Of Tomorrow, is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity, and based on a graphic novel with a cool title. So surely this should have been a movie which audiences were enthusiastically anticipating? Yet It didn’t seem that way, »
Pulp Fiction has become so canonized as a modern classic, it's easy to forget how transgressive it was on its release twenty years ago. But when Quentin Tarantino's film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May 1994, it thrilled and shocked the audience in equal measures.
'Pulp Fiction,' A to Z
No scene upended more expectations than the pawn shop sequence (Spoiler Alert — if you haven't ever seen the movie, this is the moment when you should stop reading and go do that. Really! It's streaming on Netflix! »
Blonde bombshell Cameron Diaz is currently basking in the limelight thanks to her starring role in Nick Cassavetes' romantic comedy "The Other Woman," a so-far box office success that opened last Friday. Though this film has been eviscerated by critics for its woozy sexual politics, clearly audiences are happy to see Diaz again. (We'll see how the second weekends holds.) So with a potential hit on her hands, what's her next best move? Signature line: "I don't need a blackboard or a classroom to set an example." -"Bad Teacher"Career peaks. Diaz, 41, has been kicking around in mainstream comedies and dramas, and even indies, for two decades after cutting her teeth in the 1994 comic fantasy "The Mask" opposite Jim Carrey. Her true breakout, the Farrelly Brothers' raunch-fest "There's Something About Mary," followed in 1998. But she's delivered plenty of roles to remember. All frazzled hair and frittered nerves, Diaz »
