Which Movie Does Everybody Else Seem To Love That You Just Don’t?

15 April 2014 6:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Gramercy Pictures

The greatest thing about motion pictures is that everybody is entitled to their own opinion: one man’s Citizen Kane is another man’s Grown-Ups 2. And the truth with regards to this, really, is that all opinions are subjective – there’s no “right” or “wrong” when it comes to analysing movies. Grown-Ups 2 isn’t technically a worse film than Citizen Kane (if you think that it’s better, though, please consider therapy), because what are we judging it on? What’s the official criteria, except for what we’ve been told makes for a “good” movie? It’s all down to opinion, people.

Which got us thinking about movies that the world collectively seems to have embraced, in a roundabout sort of way. The Shawshank Redemption, Back to the Future, Toy Story; as “invincible” as these films seem to be, they still have their detractors, because if there »

‘Timecop’ Remake Finds A Writing Duo

10 April 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Universal Pictures is looking to give Timecop a redo. The 1994 film, which starred Jean-Claude Van Damme and his mullet, was an undervalued sci-fi gem. To this day, it remains Van Damme’s highest-grossing movie, but middling reviews and a crowded year of notable films meant that it was soon forgotten. And when I say a “crowded year,” I mean it. 1994 gave us The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, The Lion King, True Lies, Pulp Fiction, Natural Born Killers, Stargate, Speed, The Crow, and many more. So Timecop disappeared, except in the hearts of fans that really dug the premise.

Based on a Dark Horse Comics story, Time Cop, which was featured in an anthology for the comic book shingle, the movie told the story of Max Walker- a cop who works for a special police force that has time traveling capabilities. Ron Silver played a corrupt politician that was hellbent »

Spoilers, DS! Watch supercut of infamous movie endings

10 April 2014 5:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

One of the most irritating things in life has to be hearing a spoiler about a movie or TV show. Even just finding out there's a twist in a film can be the worst, just ask Roy Trenneman.

Bearing that in mind, you may want to avoid the following video, which collects some of cinema's most iconic movie endings, including The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects. To be fair, if you haven't seen or at least heard about these endings by now, you've only got yourself to blame. If you're unsure whether to click play, a full list of films is also below.

Films featured: Citizen Kane, Fight Club, Primal Fear, Signs, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chinatown, The Empire Strikes Back, Psycho (1960), Carrie (1976), Scream, The Sixth Sense, The Departed, The Shawshank Redemption, The Crying Game, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Planet of the Apes (1968), Planet of the Apes (2001), The Mist, »

Will Bradley Cooper Play Indiana Jones In Upcoming Reboot?

26 March 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Despite the fact that we all thought Indiana Jones was at least the one famous movie franchise that wasn’t going to find itself subjected to the unnecessary reboot treatment, rumour has it that there are plans to do a “James Bond” with our favourite fictional archeologist in the near future if Harrison Ford is unable to reprise the role in time.

Yes, after much speculation as to what, exactly, is in store for the Indiana Jones saga in the next few years, it look as though Bradley Cooper (you read that right) is being considered as the actor to replace Ford in an upcoming trilogy, based on an idea that has been pitched by The Shawshank Redemption’s Frank Darabont.

You’ll remember that Darabont pitched an unsuccessful Indy sequel many years ago, so it’s weird to see him involved again. But Paramount confirmed a »

'Shawshank,' 'The Shining' & More Honored in Stephen King Art Show

21 March 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've featured plenty of cool artwork from the people at Mondo lately, from their Disney gallery to a special show from artists Martin Ansin and Kevin Tong. Now it's Hero Complex who has put together an awesome artwork collection in Los Angeles called King for a Day. And if you can't discern what the show might be honoring from the teaser image above, it features nothing but artwork paying tribute to the work of Stephen King.

Muppets Most Wanted review: Ricky Gervais leads fast and funny caper

19 March 2014 4:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Bobin; Screenwriters: James Bobin, Nicholas Stoller; Starring: Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Ty Burrell, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy; Running time: 113 mins; Certificate: U

With its comeback-within-a-comeback storyline and a charming lead turn from Jason Segel, Kermit, Miss Piggy and co got the revival they deserved in 2011's box office hit The Muppets. A charming, delightfully upbeat film packed with memorable songs from Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie, it served as both an accessible introduction for newcomers and fan service to those who grew up with Jim Henson's endearing creations.

Follow-up Muppets Most Wanted begins just seconds after its predecessor, with the gang still basking in the glory of their show-stopping Hollywood performance. When they realise the cameras are still rolling, opening number 'We're Doing a Sequel' kicks in to set up a continental caper that sees Kermit replaced as the Muppets' figurehead by his sinister Russian doppelganger Constantine. »

8 movie classics that were box office flops: From Blade Runner to Brazil

15 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long," muses Dr Eldon Tyrell in Blade Runner. This statement doesn't apply to a startling list of classic movies that faded fast at the box office on initial release, but whose flames have been burning with more intensity as the years have passed...

Blade Runner (1983)

Budget: $28 million

Box office: $33.7 million (including re-releases)

While androids dream of electric sheep, accountants must have endured hellish nightmares in the aftermath of Blade Runner's dismal run at the box office in the summer of 1982. An opening weekend of barely $6 million (£3.61 million) was attributed to an ill-conceived advertising campaign, the competition of Et for bums on seats and a mixed reception from viewers who felt stunned by the imagery but alienated by the narrative.

It's hard not to wonder whether the film would have fared better if the studio had faith in director Ridley Scott's original vision, »

Porn and thriller. What a combination!

Check Out These Hilarious Deleted Scenes From Your Favorite '90s Movies (Video)

28 February 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With all the talk about the Oscars this weekend, and all the super serious movies that are vying for Hollywood's top honors, you might just want to laugh. If so, we have got the videos for you -- a series of hilarious, highly inventive "deleted scenes" from some of your favorite movies, courtesy of the warped wizards at CineFix. Giggling most definitely will ensue.

The CineFix geniuses take on beloved '90s classics -- "Titanic," "Jurassic Park," "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day." The "missing scenes" they showcase usually involve a minor character or extra who is stuck in the background and has a whole lot to say about the memorable sequence they've found themselves a part of. My personal favorite is the archeologist who has a problem with the little kid making fun of Dr. Grant in "Jurassic Park." So, so good. They also bring back a »

Oscars 1999 Revisited

27 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After the Academy Award for Best Song was won by ‘It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp’ at the 2006 Oscars, host Jon Stewart quipped, ‘For those of you who are keeping score at home, I just want to make something very clear: Martin Scorsese, zero Oscars; Three 6 Mafia, one.’

If the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences specialises in one thing at a sophisticated level no other collaborative body could ever hope to match, it’s giving awards to the wrong people. Sometimes, it almost seems like a deliberate act of petulance. Try finding anyone outside of Robert Zemekis’s immediate family who considers Forrest Gump to be a better picture than Pulp Fiction (one win) or The Shawshank Redemption (IMDb’s Best Film Ever Made; no wins).

In 1999, The 71st Academy Awards became to many people, the apogee of undeserved Oscars and the rabid invective from »
