Five "Must-See" Movies for May 2015

1 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There aren't a lot of interesting movies hitting theaters this May. Heck, there aren't a lot of movies, period, hitting theaters this May. Sure, one title that will soon be crowned one of the biggest of all-time -- you know the one of which I speak -- after it bowed late last night to the tune of $27.6 million. Who knows, it could very well be the case that several of you read this article while you're standing in line to see the-movie-that-shall-not-be-named-until-page-two. And if that's the case, I urge you to share this with your cohorts, all those people standing around you looking for something to do until the movie finally (Finally!) starts. Do it now, don't worry, I'll wait. But back to what I was saying... Outside of a handful of blockbusters, there just isn't a lot on the release slate for the coming month. It's slim pickings, y'all! »

Why 1999 was the best year in movie history

30 April 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century? Check here for a complete list of our essays. The end of the 1990s was the end of an era on the big screen. The independent filmmaking movement that started the decade had taken full bloom and infiltrated the business. Major studios had begun to jump headlong into the "dependent" game, amping up prestige product and utilizing the awards season as a marketing tool. The blockbuster landscape at the summer multiplex had been interesting, full of original concepts (good and bad), but something else was on the way — a new overlord in the business of film, and one that would more or less make the age of the movie star (at least as we had come to know it) a thing of the past. For those reasons and a slew of others, »

25 underrated 1990s movie soundtracks

28 April 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Muppet Treasure Island to Speed, we take a look at the 90s soundtracks that deserve another listen...

Ah, the 1990s. The decade that brought us The Lion King. Titanic. Quentin Tarantino. That wordless bathroom scene in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks. Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. In the Mood for Love.

It was a good 10 years for film music, no doubt.

But scratch the surface of 1991 through 1999 and there are tons of good scores ready to spring a surprise on your ears. Some were attached to sorely underrated movies, others were overshadowed by wildly successful ones, and some have simply been forgotten in the passage of time.

Here, in no particular order, are the top 25 underappreciated film soundtracks from the 1990s.

1. Chaplin - John Barry

Okay, let's start with a big one. Richard Attenborough. Robert Downey Jr. John Barry. »

Brad Bird Confirms He's Writing 'The Incredibles 2'

9 April 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Brad Bird has one of the more anticipated films of the summer movie season in Tomorrowland and he's coming fresh off the success of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, but it appears he may be ready to return to his animated roots. Speaking with NPR (via The Playlist), he tells this site, "I'm just staring to write The Incredibles 2, so we'll see what happens." As Pixar has continued to release sequels to their features including the Toy Story trilogy and Monsters University, the fact they haven't made a sequel to 2004's The Incredibles, which Bird wrote and directed, has always confused fans. After all, it's a superhero movie and superhero movies are not made to simply be one film. Bird's first animated feature was The Iron Giant back in 1999 and his last one was 2007's Ratatouille so should Incredibles 2 come to fruition it would most likely come at least »

Looking ahead to the big blockbusters of summer 2016

9 April 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Reboots, videogame adaptations, and a few long awaited sequels are all due for release next year

Now that Fast & Furious 7 has formally opened summer blockbuster season 2015 up, it's time for us to take our traditional look at the big movies gracing multiplexes this time next year.

2016 is set to be a pivotal summer, too. There are big movies in both the DC and Marvel cinematic universes. Warner Bros is looking to launch the first of six King Arthur movies, whilst Universal may get cracking with its classic monster cinematic universe. And - yep - we may even get the world's first great film based on a videogame.

Summer blockbuster season 2016 stretches from March through to August, and here's what treats are lined up. Please note, we've gone with Us release dates, for the purposes of this feature, as that's where most of the films will debut first.

Ride or Die: A Complete History on the Evolution of ‘The Fast and the Furious’ Franchise

3 April 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ride or die.” Those words only appear a few times in the franchise – most famously out of Vin Diesel’s gravelly baritone in Fast & Furious 6 – but they have become the personal motto for how this franchise has continued, grown, succeeded and become greater with each film. Today, Furious 7, the latest in the series will be released, and it’s a mark of achievement not only that they’ve made it to seven films, but that it only feels exciting for a seventh film about criminals racing cars to be released.  The Fast and the Furious franchise is unlike any franchise out there right now, as it has evolved from perfectly adequate popcorn films about criminals racing cars to superb and exhilarating blockbuster action films. No other franchise can say that they only began to hit their creative stride with the fifth film. To understand how we arrived at this point though, »

Boasting a script from Damon Lindelof (“Lost,” Star Trek Into Darkness) and director Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille), you can rest assured that Disney’s Tomorrowland will deliver on its promise of fantasy/sci-fi spectacle that’s simultaneously both delightful and exhilarating.

Hollywood’s 9 Best Robot Heroes and Villains

8 March 2015 9:05 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Director Niell Blomkamp’s new sci-fi epic Chappie opened this weekend. The film tells the story of a robot who is given artificial intelligence by his inventor, but he must learn the ways of the world just like a child. However, his innocent mind is being molded by gangsters and violent criminals.

Photos: 'Pacific Rim' and 7 Giant Robot/Monster Mashes

It’s still to be seen if Chappie will go down as a classic in the robot sci-fi genre, but if it whetted your appetite for artificial intelligence movies and android action scenes, here are nine of the best robotic heroes and nine of the craziest robotic villains in cinematic history.

Robo-Heroes

9. Gigolo Joe from A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001)

Tomorrowland: new poster for Brad Bird's latest

6 March 2015 9:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, is one of the most promising-looking blockbusters of the year. Here's the new poster...

There's a bunch of blockbuster movies this coming summer that already look really rather exciting. But save a space in your movie-going calendar for the new film from The Incredibles and The Iron Giant director, Brad Bird. He's directing Disney's standalone big budget effort, Tomorrowland, working from a script by Damon Lindelof. We've seen around 15-20 minutes of footage from the film, something we usually avoid, but the stuff we saw really was very impressive indeed. Here's hoping the final movie holds up.

George Clooney stars in this one, and we sense that a new trailer may not be far away. After all, out of the blue, Disney has released thef ollowing new poster for the movie. And the modern way of marketing a movie is that the poster comes first, the trailer's never far behind. »

Tomorrowland: Big Game Spot, With A Bit More Clooney And A Dash Of Laurie

1 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

So far we have not been given a whole lot to go on with Disney's Tomorrowland. They are still holding back the goods. Tonight's big game spot is no exception. We get a bit more George Clooney and a quick look at Hugh Laurie. I would like to see a full trailer sooner than later. In Brad Bird we trust, right? We all know The Incredibles was... just that. I am not sure how mentioning Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is going to make your average folks say, 'Oh yeah. Now I am totally going to keep an eye out for this one'. Don't you wish they could drop The Iron Giant in there instead and it still have the desired effect?Sigh. How easily they forget. We'll be here,...

Tomorrowland Super Bowl Trailer: “Do You Want To Go?”

1 February 2015 4:06 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Walt Disney Pictures

Damon Lindelof, co-writer of Tomorrowland, brings with him an association to Jj Abrams, and Abrams’ so-called Mystery Box. As such, Tomorrowland has been produced under as much secrecy as Disney could manage. This only makes every trailer and glimpse of footage more exciting. This Super Bowl pretty much had me on the edge of my seat.

There’s a lot I know about Tomorrowland that isn’t anywhere in that trailer at all. Did you see any trace of humanoid robots, for example? But at the same time, some of that trailer sideswiped me entirely. I had no idea that rocket ship at the end was going to come into play – the business with the pin badge makes it look Tomorrowland is accessed through a kind of teleportation, not space travel, so I’m really not sure what’s going on there.

And that was our first »

Which Films Are Getting Super Bowl Ads This Year?

29 January 2015 10:11 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Every year, studios line up to throw tons of money to air ads during the Super Bowl. The football spectacle produces gigantic ratings, which means a ton of exposure for anything that airs during it. As of a couple of weeks ago, only Jurassic World had been announced as getting a spot on the telecast, but with the big game mere days away we now have a better idea of what films will be vying for your attention.

The most intriguing one at this point is Disney's Tomorrowland, since we've seen next to nothing from that production yet. It stars Academy Award winner George Clooney, in his first blockbuster tentpole since 2007's Ocean's Thirteen. It's also being directed by fan-favorite Brad Bird, who's films have all been well-received. We're talking about a resumé that includes The Iron GiantThe Incredibles, and Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol. So this will be »

Most Anticipated Blockbusters of 2015 (That Aren’t Already Hyped to Death)

25 January 2015 5:57 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Especially when it comes to big-budget genre blockbusters, hype has become an inseparable part of movie culture. Trailers, teasers and teasers for trailers, along with a steady drip-feed of news, rumors and inside reports, all these are well-handled tools in Hollywood’s ever-increasing mastery of getting you primed and ready to slap down your money. Add the fact that more and more Hollywood blockbusters are based off beloved properties or tied to ongoing series and yearly top-ten lists of the most anticipated blockbusters or summer movies of the year can tend to look a bit samey. Oh really, you’re excited for Star Wars Episode 7? Well of course you are, it’s Star Wars Episode 7. Saying you’re excited to see it is like saying you enjoy oxygen or puppydog kisses.

Most of the most anticipated movies of the year, quite frankly, don’t need any more hype than they already have. »
