Adventure Time’s tremendous first season has finally come out in the UK. Here’s why that news is worth celebrating…
Of all the available methods of recapturing your childhood, watching Adventure Time is surely the least ungainly and the most fun. Cosier than a onesie, less tiring than a bouncy castle, and better for your teeth than a bag of Haribo, Pendleton Ward’s animated fantasy series pulls you through a portal to the days of running home from school, sitting cross-legged inches from the TV, and being thoroughly delighted by a cartoon.
Except, we never had anything quite this delightful or barking mad when we were children; or if we did, it lost its shine in the cold, hard light of adulthood. Adventure Time is a programme adults can watch with kids and as kids (just as well now that we’re »
"When you read about the scene you see this mania for authenticity," says Joel Coen, describing what enticed him and his brother Ethan into making Inside Llewyn Davis, a film about folksingers in Greenwich Village just before Bob Dylan touched down and took off. But Coen isn't really praising the folksingers' authenticity – it's their mania that fascinates him. In the very next sentence he goes on: "You have these guys like Elliott Adnopoz, the son of a neurosurgeon from Queens, calling himself Ramblin' Jack Elliott. In the film we have »
We're getting a new Coen brothers movie this week with Inside Llewyn Davis, which makes it a great time to look at the filmmakers' past works. The Big Lebowski of 1998 is so influential, it even has its own yearly festival and a store in NYC - appropriately named The Little Lebowski Shop - that sells Dude-related products. We're listing our favorite lines from the comedy below, and we want to know yours! "That rug really tied the room together." - The Dude "We are nihilists, Lebowski!" - Nihilist "The Dude abides." - The Dude Source: Working Title Films »

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2001, and a vintage year for lesser-seen gems...
Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke may have seen 2001 as the year we'd head off to meet alien intelligences in the depths of space, but in reality, its cinematic landscape was dominated by fantasy rather than extra-terrestrials. Rowling and Tolkien dominated the box office, with Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone and The Fellowship Of The Ring earning almost $1bn each, while Monsters, Inc and Shrek thrilled old and young audiences alike.
At the other end of the spectrum of success, 2001 was such a vintage year for movies that we had to whittle our usual selection of 25 films down from an initial selection of more than 40. This is why the decision was made - with heavy heart - to exclude some of our favourite films, »
Back in August, French electro-duo Daft Punk bailed last minute on a scheduled Colbert Report performance, citing a contractual obligation to MTV. But instead of scrambling like a headless chicken for a replacement act, Stephen Colbert jumped and danced for joy, literally. He and his writing team took the booking snafu as an opportunity to create an ecstatic music video set to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” which featured a beaming Colbert dancing with various celebs (Bryan Cranston, Jeff Bridges, Hugh Laurie and others), crashing three other shows (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, America’s Got Talent and Charlie Rose »

John Goodman has been such a staple in Coen brothers films that it's easy to forget it's been 13 years since he last appeared in one of their movies (2000's "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"). Now he's back in a small but memorable role in their latest, "Inside Llewyn Davis," in which he pops up as a colorful jazz musician who goes on an unlikely road trip with the titular aspiring folk singer (played by Oscar Isaac).
When I walked into the hotel room to interview Goodman, he told me to "park it there" on the couch while he sat in the chair by the window, and to "slap it [my recorder] there" on the table in front of him. He proceeded to talk about the backstory he created for his character, what it was like to work with Bob Dylan, and why he's taking a break from movies for a while.

When the Coen brothers are on their game (Fargo/The Big Lebowski…forget it, not naming every movie), they’re masters of their obscure craft, but Inside Llewyn Davis didn’t display the typical amount of quirks, perceptive comedy, and off-color characters that the brothers typically utilize. Llewyn Davis is a character that once again wanders down a somber, relentless path, but without that typically goofy aura, Inside Llewyn Davis slows to an uncharacteristically sluggish pace – despite a crack music department headlined by T-Bone Burnett. The Coen’s script tells a story you might hear a raspy folk singer croon while he solemnly strums his dusty acoustic guitar, but if this “Grandpa music” isn’t exactly your style, you might have some trouble waiting to find out what’s exactly inside Llewyn Davis.

If your Thanksgiving was anything like mine, you spent a portion of your meal talking about movies. It’s Oscar season, after all, and every favorite aunt, distant cousin, and annoying neighbor has an opinion — a strong opinion — on the year’s best movies. It’s a conversation that will only grow louder in the coming weeks, as the race’s final contenders open in theaters, year-end Top-10 lists take shape, and studios begin to jockey in earnest for nominations. At stake is nothing less than cinematic immortality: To win an Oscar for Best Picture or Best Actress or another »

The Coen Brothers have often been hailed by film fans as among the top tier of filmmakers, with a filmography that includes Fargo, The Big Lebowski, A Serious Man, Raising Arizona, and No Country For Old Men, among others. Thus, many were excited to learn of a new feature from the brothers, one that would be a folk musical this time around, working with a cast that includes Carey Mulligan, Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, Adam Driver, and John Goodman. With the soundtrack’s release, one song, titled Please Mr. Kennedy, caught the ear of many, and now the accompanying scene has been released, and can be seen below.

Stung is a film from production companies Rat Pack Filmproduktion and Xyz Films. The film shows some of that b-movie charm from the late '70s and '80s, where giant insects were the order of the day. In Benni Diez's first feature film, mutated insects crash an upper crust party. Also, the film stars Peter Stormare (The Big Lebowski), Clifton Collins Jr. (Tigerland), Lance Henriksen and Matt O'Leary. Now, a couple of early photos have been released for the film, since production has wrapped. The first photo (above) shows actor Matt O'Leary as Paul. He is a server at the party and he faces a monstrous creature in this still. A second photo shows actress Jessica Cook. Cook plays Julia, a waitress at the event. Julia gets a little too close to some wasp sauce, which covers her entire body. As well, a movie clip for this film was released earlier this year. »

I made my Slim Pickings joke last week and this week, I got nothing. Things are a bit better this week anyway with a nice mixture of the new, the old and the quirky independent that has gone straight to VOD.
I imagine things will pick up massively into December as Now TV adds Iron Man 3 and Oz: The Great and Powerful and then the other service providers try and compete.
For now though below are the films to look out for this week, Enjoy!
The latest horror film to borrow Guillermo Del Toro’s name in order to present itself, is this ghost story from director Andres Muschietti. Jessica Chastain plays a woman who reluctantly becomes foster-mother to her partners’ two nieces after they are recovered from living feral in the wilderness. The problem is the girls were looked after by something nasty in the woods and »

It didn't take long for Jennifer Lawrence to catch fire and sweep the acting world off its feet.
Now, with an Oscar under her belt, Lawrence is back and reprising her role as Katniss Everdeen in the second installment of "The Hunger Games" franchise, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," in theaters now.
This time around, Katniss and Peeta Mellark are eyed as threats to the Capitol after their victory incites rebellion in the Districts of Panem. Good news for fans: this "Hunger Games" is supposed to be bigger and better than the first!
Sure, you've seen Lawrence as the heroic "Hunger Games" champ (and rocking a pixie cut as of late), but there is still so much to learn about the outspoken star. From her childhood pony to her minor TV roles, here are 20 things you probably don't know about Jennifer Lawrence.
1. Before setting her sights on acting, Lawrence aspired to become a doctor. »

The Coen brothers' movies are not, for the most part, overflowing with sentiment. Black humor, existential mysteries, endlessly quotable dialogue? Sure. Unabashed emotion? Shut the fuck up, Donny. But they've learned to lace their films with deft musical moments that do that cathartic work for them. Their new movie, Inside Llewyn Davis (out December 6th), is their deepest musical dive since 2000's O Brother, Where Art Thou? The title character is an emotionally blocked, career-stymied folk singer (played by Oscar Isaac) in early-Sixties Greenwich Village, and the film is packed with performances. »
Dustin Hoffman (Rain Man, The Graduate) and Steve Buscemi (The Big Lebowski, Boardwalk Empire) have joined Adam Sandler in Tom McCarthy's character based dramatic comedy The Cobbler, reports The Wrap.
The film finds Sandler as a shoe repairman who integrates himself into the lives of the people whose footwear he fixes. Very little else is known about the plot and how Hoffman and Buscemi will fit into it, but with McCarthy at the helm, this could be the Sandler comeback we have hoped for since Punch Drunk Love.
Mary Jane Skalski is producing The Cobbler with Voltage Pictures overlooking the project. McCarthy is yet to make a misstep with Win Win and The Visitor impressing critics and the indie audience alike. The film is currently shooting in New York with a 2014 release eyed. »

★★★★☆ The outrageous exploits and antics of Hollywood filmmaker John Milius has been the stuff of Hollywood legend for years now, creating an almost mythical-like impression of the Apocalypse Now scribe and Big Wednesday director (The Big Lebowski's mentally-unstable Vietnam vet Walter Sobchak was said to be loosely based on him.) An in-depth portrait of the self-proclaimed "Zen anarchist" now arrives in the form of Milius (2013), Joey Figueroa and Zak Knutson's hugely entertaining and fittingly reverential documentary of this larger-than-life, somewhat contradictory figure - "a teddy bear with an AK47".

The movie follows Jon Martello (Gordon-Levitt), a good-looking womanizer who loves sex with real women but loves porn even more. When he meets Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson, Hitchcock), he falls hard and quickly becomes a one woman man.
Barbara, however, thinks real life should be like romantic movies, and when she discovers Jon’s love of internet women, she gives him an ultimatum. Trying to be the man Barbara wants him to be proves challenging, and soon, Jon’s re-thinking everything he knows about love and sex.
