Guardians Of The Galaxy Blu-Ray Review

12 December 2014 2:07 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-Ray Review

Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters with surprising force, based on the fact that it is a comic-book film based on characters virtually no one knows, and the Blu-Ray is here to repeat the frenzy. Part space opera, part comic adventure, the film is an unusual hybrid of elements, made all the more interesting by way of characters who aren’t going to be explained, and are themselves rather fantastic.

Catch our podcast review of Guardians of the Galaxy here.

The film introduces us, in rather spectacular fashion, to Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), who fancies himself Star Lord, galactic superthief, or something. Having been abducted from Earth as a child, though again, this is a film with little interest in backstory, Peter was raised by the criminals who captured him, and he now finds himself outfitted with some really snazzy tech.

This time, rummaging through a forgotten world, »

2015 Golden Globe Nominations: The Complete List

11 December 2014 5:57 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Peter Krause, and Paula Patton all got up early, like most of us movie buffs, for the big reveal! The 2015 Golden Globe Nominations! The usual suspects triumphed at the nominations such as "Boyhood," "Foxcatcher," "Selma," "The Imitation Game," and "The Theory of Everything." Missing was one of my favorite films of the year, "Whiplash" but it got one nod for J.K. Simmons' performance.

Also missing in the big categories is Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" which only received one nomination, Best Original Score. Watch the film to get kudos from the Academy in the technical categories.

We'll find out the winners of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 11, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return as our hosts of the evening and it will be broadcast live on NBC.

Here's the complete list of nominees of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards: »

Chris Rock on the 'greedy' 'Top Five' strategy, Marvel movies and... Fincher's 'Anchorman?'

1 December 2014 6:19 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A Chris Rock interview is a lot like a Chris Rock stand-up special, bouncing from topic to topic, hitting hard truths laced with humor. What may be a nightmare scenario for publicists makes for great reading. In a new and lengthy interview with New York Magazine, writer-at-large and "Veep" producer Frank Rich inputs topics into conversation like the comedian-turned-director is a search engine. Enter "Obama," "Bill Cosby," or "censorship" into Chris Rock Google and out pops every thought on his mind. Tackling politics, his stand-up career, and the state of comedy in 2014, Rich’s interview eventually gets to the reason that they’re together in a room at this very moment: "Top Five." Earlier this Fall, Toronto Film Festival audiences went bananas for Rock’s jazzy, star-studded dramedy. Written, directed, and starring the comedian, "Top Five" rings autobiographical, following a comedian ready to hang up his jokey hat in favor of a "serious" movie career. »

How House of Cards’ Kevin Spacey is the King of Alternative Media

9 November 2014 4:41 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’m seeing Kevin Spacey everywhere lately, despite the fact that the movie star seems to have left traditional films behind. Perhaps better than any other A-lister, Kevin Spacey has embraced a shift in media way from film being the end-all, be-all of quality, and his experimentation with other forms of alternative media is really a case study in the changing landscape of storytelling. Before 2008, Kevin Spacey was best known as the star of such films as La Confidential, American Beauty and The Usual Suspects. He was a movie star practically without equal, which is why many questioned his sudden switch into less traditional stories. I think all this started in 2008 with Recount, the HBO original film that had Spacey in the middle of the 2000 Bush vs. Gore recount debate. It was arguably one of the best films of the year, and Spacey was smart enough to see that,…

Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey will be 'Elvis & Nixon' (respectively)

6 November 2014 4:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ron Howard’s "Frost/Nixon" disappointed with only $18 million at the domestic box office. So the logical thought was, "Sequel!?" Well, say hello to "Elvis & Nixon," the "Mothra vs. Godzilla" of the Richard Nixon franchise. Ok, "Elvis & Nixon" has nothing to do with Howard’s film, but it is an in-the-works docudrama starring two major talents that could prove even more fruitful than the Michael Sheen/Frank Langella pairing. Production company Bloom announced late Wednesday evening that Michael Shannon will play Elvis Presley against Kevin Spacey’s Richard Nixon in the based-on-a-true-story film. Liza Johnson ("Return," "Hateship Loveship") will direct "Elvis & Nixon" based on a script by Cary Elwes (of "Princess Bride" fame)and actors Hanala and Joey Sagal. Indie producer Cassian Elwes ("The Butler," Cary’s brother) will produce alongside Holly Wiersma ("Dallas Buyers Club"). "Elvis & Nixon" recounts the bizarre meeting between the King of Rock 'n' Roll and »

Michael Shannon & Kevin Spacey to Star in Elvis & Nixon

5 November 2014 7:24 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Academy Award Nominee Michael Shannon (Man Of Steel, Revolutionary Road) will star as Elvis Presley alongside two-time Academy Award Winner Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, The Usual Suspects) who will star as Richard Nixon in the extraordinary true story Elvis & Nixon.

To be directed by Liza Johnson (Hateship Loveship, Return), Elvis & Nixon is based off a screenplay by Cary Elwes and Hanala and Joey Sagal.

Two men at the height of their powers, conscious they could not stay on top forever, both ripped with fear of the inevitable, sharing one famous private moment in the Oval office. Elvis & Nixon recounts the morning of December 21st 1970, when the King of Rock’ n Roll (Michael Shannon) showed up on the White House lawn to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey).  He had a very urgent request: to be sworn in as an undercover Federal Agent at large. »

Production, Film Financing Company Fyzz Facility Opens L.A. Office

24 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — U.K.-based production and film financing company the Fyzz Facility is to open a Los Angeles office in the same month as it celebrates closing its 50th feature film investment.

The company, which is owned and managed by producers Wayne Marc Godfrey (“The Survivalist,” “Cake,” “Bus 657”) and Robert Jones (“The Usual Suspects,” “Babylon,” “Gosford Park”), has invested almost $40 million across 50 feature films since 2010.

The expansion to Los Angeles reflects its involvement in an increasing number of U.S. projects, and its desire to consolidate existing relationships and develop new partnerships on a global scale, it said.

Godfrey said: “Whilst we continue to support British films and help nurture British talent, an expansion to the U.S. has become a necessary next step for us, considering the importance Hollywood has on the global film business. Robert and I are excited to join the filmmaking community in L.A. »

It’s A Bad Day At The Office In New Banner Poster For Horrible Bosses 2

20 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In cinema, the comedy sequel is a peculiar beast. Unlike those found in other genres, follow-ups to those films that strike to tickle the funny bone are often less bigger, bolder and darker and more, well, disappointing.

Whether it’s continuations of Airplane, The Hangover or even the widely-derided Grown Ups, history has taught us that a comedy sequel can be a tough nut to crack. But come November, Sean Andres will look to avoid those pitfalls with Horrible Bosses 2 — the follow-up to 2011’s surprise ensemble hit.

Reuniting Nick, Dale and Kurt — aka the world’s unluckiest Average Joes — Horrible Bosses 2 will see the trio try to break out on their own by setting up a business. Of course, things don’t go quite according to plan after a conniving investor (played by Christoph Waltz) double crosses them. Joining Waltz as a newcomer is Chris Pine, while Kevin Spacey, »

Quicksilver Concept Art For X-men: Days Of Future Past

19 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »

Brad Pitt Facts: 35 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Fury' Star

17 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Since breaking out over 20 years ago in "Thelma & Louise," Brad Pitt has been difficult to miss.

After landing his place in cinematic history as a hunky (and shirtless) criminal, Pitt's career blossomed with starring roles in critical and box office hits alike, such as "A River Runs Through It" (1992), "Seven" (1995), and "12 Monkeys" (1995) -- just to name a few. In the past two decades, Pitt has become one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but his role has expanded beyond just acting. In only the past few years, he's produced two Best Picture nominated films, "Moneyball" (2011) and "12 Years a Slave" (2013). This fall, he's back in front of the camera leading his battle-hardened platoon into Nazi Germany in "Fury."

From his early days in Missouri to his unlikely romances, here are 35 things you probably don't know about Brad Pitt.

1. Brad Pitt was born December 18, 1963 in Shawnee, Oklahoma to Jane Hillhouse and William Pitt.

2. His mother was a school counselor, »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Interview with Shawn Ashmore

14 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Almost 15 years ago, X-Men helped bring the superhero genre to life with a blockbuster adventure that showed comic book characters could bring in big crowds at the box office. After hit sequels X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand, 20th Century Fox returned to the past with 2011's X-Men: First Class, which took the action back to the 1960s. While many thought the original trilogy characters' time was over, those many were quite wrong, with both the past and present coming together in the summer blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past, now available on Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD.

I recently had the chance to speak with one of the original trilogy cast members Shawn Ashmore, who returns as Bobby "Iceman" Drake in director Bryan Singer's hit superhero adventure, which took in nearly $750 million worldwide during its theatrical run this summer.

Satanic Sunday: Ranking Portrayals of the Devil

5 October 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s hard to nail down the personification of the ultimate evil. The Prince of Darkness deserves to be more than just a cackling, dark figure in the background or an over-the-top sleaze.  This is an angel who has been cast out of Heaven and carries a major grudge. Neglecting the depth of his pain or not seizing the opportunity to have a little fun in the exercise of his machinations is always a problem, with no discernible representation able to strike a perfect balance yet. The best contemporary performances on film leave something to the imagination and twist our perception of the iconic role just enough to make it seem fresh or threatening. What follows is a list of cinematic Satans that have made an indelible impression, ranked from worst to best.
