Criterion Collection: Time Bandits | Blu-ray Review

16 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Terry Gilliam’s second solo directorial effort, Time Bandits, remains an oddly hilarious bridge between his work with the Monty Python gang and his subsequent dystopian solo films like Brazil, Twelve Monkeys and even last year’s The Zero Theorem. Drenched in English dry wit and warped by the cartoonist’s soul that pervades all of Gilliam’s work, the film sees a gang of little people abandoning their posts as the creator’s right hand men to leap through the corridors of time pillaging as many treasures as they can drag with them, while a child gets wrapped up in the mischief along the way. Of its period in more ways that one, it feels a bit like a valiant attempt at emulating Spielberg with Gilliam-Goggles on.

With a stolen map of all time and space in hand, the little gang of burglars, led by Randall (played by a »

12 sci-fi and horror shorts turned into feature films

2 December 2014 5:41 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From low-budget dystopias to grungy horror, here are 12 shorts that became films such as Evil Dead, Twelve Monkeys and The Babadook.

The best story ideas are often the simple and pure ones. It's little wonder, then, that so many filmmakers and storytellers start by making short films - after all, if you can tell a good story in just a few minutes, you might be talented enough to make a feature.

Cinema history is full of stories about young filmmakers getting their start by making low-budget shorts. James Cameron famously made Xenogenesis, a sci-fi short which contained lots of things that would appear in his later feature films: a giant robot with big tank tracks, a cyborg, and a heroine at the helm of a hard-hitting mecha.

The short films below vary wildly, from two-minute chillers to 30-minute post-apocalyptic science fiction, but each of them are watchable for their own reasons, »

Thn Turns 11! A Look Back At Our Favourite Films – Looper (2012)

26 November 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Hollywood News is eleven years old this month. That’s right, we are now well on our way to out teen years and boy have we come a long way since 2003. And it’s not just us, the film industry has gone from strength to strength during the last decade. They finally learned how to make a decent super-hero film for one. As part of our celebrations each of our team has been tasked with writing a piece on one of their favourite films of the last eleven years. This writer’s offering can be nothing other than Looper.

Released in 2012 and directed by the brilliant Rian Johnson, who will be directing Star Wars VIII don’t you know, Looper is a fantastic time-travel movie. Firstly having been a fan of Johnson’s work since Brick I was very excited for the release of Looper, and thankfully I wasn’t disappointed. »

Brad Pitt Has Secretive Sci-Fi Plans

20 November 2014 6:48 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Beyond his part in Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys, Brad Pitt has never really explored much of the science-fiction. It's a bit strange when you consider how many other genre films he's made over the course of his career as an actor and a producer - but the good news is that it's an area in which the famed actor is working to expand. Word has come from The Hollywood Reporter saying that Brad Pitt and his Plan B production banner are working alongside author Daniel H. Wilson to develop a new sci-fi project titled Alpha, which has already been picked up for distribution by Lionsgate. While the intricate details of the project's plot are currently being kept under wraps, the trade report descibes the project as being a survival story with touches of legendary author Jack London in the story. Directing duties on the film have fallen to first »

Us networks plot film spin-offs

13 November 2014 1:32 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Major Us broadcasters are developing more than 20 TV adaptations of feature films as they follow the example of their cable counterparts.

Us pay-tv networks have recently found success with the likes of Fargo and Teen Wolf, and have lined up further adaptations of Scream (MTV), Twelve Monkeys (Syfy), Shutter Island (HBO) and Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead (Starz).

Traditional networks - ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW - are now getting involved and have struck deals for adaptations of well-known films including Big, Minority Report and The Devil’s Advocate, as well as more niche films such as John Ritter’s Problem Child and Val Kilmer’s Real Genius.

The networks have ordered scripts for the 20-plus adaptations and will decide which projects to pilot by January. Those taken to series will likely be ordered in May for an autumn 2015 launch.

Monty Python's Terry Gilliam hints at Life of Brian musical

11 November 2014 8:56 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Terry Gilliam has spoken about a potential musical version of Monty Python's Life of Brian.

The Twelve Monkeys director said that he plans to discuss potential new projects with his Python colleagues next month, following their sold-out live reunion stage show earlier this year.

"At a gathering in December we'll talk of what we might do," he told The Sun.

"There have always been talks about trying to do a musical of Life of Brian."

The 1979 comedy was a sequel to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which was later turned into a successful musical titled Spamalot by Eric Idle in 2004.

However, Gilliam played down the chances of a new feature film, saying: "There have always been talks about another film, but I don't know. One reason we did the show was because it only required a couple of months of our lives.

"But a film is a much longer process. »

Aaron Stanford Is a Blast to the Past in Latest '12 Monkeys’ Trailer (Video)

30 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Aaron Stanford is mankind's best chance at survival in the latest trailer for “12 Monkeys,” Syfy's upcoming sci-fi reboot. The “Nikita” star plays Cole, the show's tightly-wound, time-jumping protagonist. The same character was portrayed by Bruce Willis in Terry Gilliam‘s 1995 movie “Twelve Monkeys,” from which this show has been loosely adapted. But aside from identical names and missions, the two Coles aren't much alike. Syfy's version is considerably more high strung, for starters. When Cole meets Dr. Railly (played by “Suits” star Amanda Schull) and tries to explain the severity his mission, his bedside manner is lacking. See video: Syfy's '12 Monkeys’ Series. »

Spotlight on the Stars: Brad Pitt

15 October 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of Hollywood’s absolute bigger stars. He’s about as A-list as the A-list gets…the name? Well, Brad Pitt of course. Not only is he a movie star with all capital letters (Movie Star!) and a top tier celebrity, he’s also developed into one of the industry’s best and most interesting actors as well. Pitt is the type of star that doesn’t rest on his laurels and often seems to attach himself to challenging material, something that will win the man an acting Oscar one day (he already won his first one last year for helping to produce Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave). As high as he’s soared already, the best could still be to come. Pitt got his noticeable start in the business (after some uncredited acting jobs on »

23 movies currently being turned into TV shows

15 October 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Big and Uncle Buck to Shutter Island and Rush Hour, here are 23 films that are getting the television treatment...

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.

Here are 23 - count 'em! - currently in differing stages of production...


The film: Earning Tom Hanks his first Oscar nomination, the beloved 1988 comedy drama Big saw him as Josh Baskin who, courtesy of a Zoltar machine, turns into an adult. Romance, work, and playing on a big piano follow.

The TV show: Big is set to be a half hour comedy show from 20th Century Fox Television. Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are executive producing and writing, and Big the TV show is set to »

First Reaction: Syfy’s 12 Monkeys [Nycc 2014]

14 October 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After an exhausting day spent wandering the New York Comic Con floor last Friday, Syfy offered me sanctuary in the form of comfy theater chairs and a sneak preview of their upcoming television reboot, 12 Monkeys. Based off Terry Gilliam’s popular film (Twelve Monkeys), showrunners Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas are looking to bring a hard science fiction bite to Syfy’s regularly scheduled programming, repurposing a famous genre brand in the process. While I can’t unleash a full review due to the show’s January 16th series debut, I am allowed to give you my initial thoughts on the entire pilot episode without spoiling any of the super-juicy details.

I’m not exactly sure if Gilliam is thrilled about the show’s existence, but the pilot sufficiently establishes a world that hits upon the 1995 classic while tweaking a few major points for a reinvigorated experience. Motives are established, »

Grimmfest 2014 Review – The House at the End of Time (2013)

2 October 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The House at the End of Time (Spanish: La casa del fin de los tiempos), 2013.

Directed by Alejandro Hidalgo.

Starring Rosmel Bustamante, Adriana Calzadilla and Simona Chirinos.


After mistakenly serving thirty years in prison for the murder of her husband and child Dulce is allowed home to spend her last days in peace, but upon her return she begins seeking answers to the deaths of her loved ones.

Waking up on the floor whilst bleeding from mysterious cuts in your face is about standard within the horror genre, but for a movie touted as one of Venezuela’s first horror films The House at The End of Time deserves credit for pushing back against a familiar backdrop and opening.

Written and directed by Alejandro Hidalgo, The House at The End of Time is a film which feels like it has to something to prove, namely that it can stand toe-to-toe with any Hollywood offering, »

'Seven' (1995) - Best Movies #6

29 September 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't tell you exactly when I first saw David Fincher's Se7en. I definitely saw it in theaters on or around when it was released on September 22, 1995, and after seeing it I know I quickly ran to purchase the film's soundtrack, not because I necessarily loved Howard Shore's score, but because that's what I did back then. In the days before short theatrical windows and immediate DVD releases, purchasing the score was my way of preserving the experience of seeing a movie I truly loved. In this case I could listen to Shore's "Suite from Se7en" or "Portrait of John Doe" and immediately find myself back in the seedy, noir world Fincher envisioned, Andrew Kevin Walker scripted (read it here*) and Darius Khondji photographed. It was the films of David Fincher that first caused me to start looking at movies differently. Se7en and then Fight Club were »

Nyff: A Swarm of Surrealism

Our coverage of the 2014 New York Film Festival, which opens today, continues - here's Jason with an askance look at some of the unsung heroes of The Wonders and their cinematic precedents...

Earlier this week Glenn wrote up a review of Alice Rohrwacher's really very fine film The Wonders, which I also heartily endorse. I was sitting next to him at the press screening and besides being communally delighted (that sounds dirty but I mean it in the most innocent way possible) by the movie together we squirmed, writhed, and let out little moans of discomfort (alright it sounds dirty again, just bear with me here) when the screen repeatedly filled with bees - so many bees! If I'd given it any thought beforehand I might have skipped the film because despite not having an allergy I am a total melissophobic and watching them crawl on human skin is »

Terry Gilliam Looks Back: ''Brazil' Will Be on My Gravestone'

19 September 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

I've given up trying to understand my own life," Terry Gilliam says. "I'm just trying to make sense of the world this life is taking place in." The movie director emits a high-pitched giggle.

At the moment, Gilliam's "world" is located in the trendy restaurant in Manhattan's Tribeca Grand Hotel, but, just as he's done for decades, the director is continuing to parse the meaning of life on film. His latest movie, The Zero Theorem, focuses on a discontented misanthrope, played by Django Unchained's Christoph Waltz, who attempts to »

The evolution of the TV virus thriller

16 September 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain comes to the UK, we look back at how TV’s virus thrillers have mutated over the decades…

It was much so simpler when they’d just kill you. Once upon a time, viruses in TV dramas were straightforward slaughterers. The flu of 1975’s Survivors, for instance, cut a swathe through the UK, leaving well-spoken corpses wherever it went. Once infected, you’d cough, start sweating, and then drop dead - unless you numbered amongst the lucky immune, in which case it was time to brush up on your scouting badge survival skills and attempt to make your way in a post-plague world.

Nowadays, TV’s infected aren’t given anything like such an easy time of it. After the coughing, sweating, lurching - and often, dying - stage, more often than not, the virus transforms you. You mutate into something monstrous, one »
