The 50 Best Sci-Fi Films of the 21st Century Thus Far

19 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In a medium founded on expanding one’s imagination and perception of reality, no genre does it better than science fiction. We’ve come a long way from the days when Georges Méliès took us to the moon, for today’s filmmakers look far beyond our universe and into the deepest corners of our soul to reflect the current society.

With the latest entry in the Star Trek franchise arriving in theaters this week, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s sci-fi films that have most excelled. To note: we only stuck with feature-length works of 60 minutes or longer and, to make room for a few more titles, our definition of “the 21st century” stretched to include 2000.

Check out our top 50 below and let us know your favorites in the comments. We’ve also put the list on Letterboxd to keep track of how many you’ve seen. »

UK in crisis? Enter Keanu Reeves by Jennie Kermode - 2016-06-28 18:03:46

Keanu Reeves Photo: Gordon Correll

The past week has been a turbulent one for the UK, with the public voting to leave the European Union, Prime Minister David Cameron resigning and conventional politics in disarray. Many MPs, like members of the public, have been left feeling that they need a hero to save the day. Who should appear in the hallowed halls of Westminster but Speed star Keanu Reeves.

As it emerged, he was neither there to tell them they'd reach Point Break nor to assure them that they were caught in The Matrix and would soon wake up. According to Mark Pritchard, he was there to meet Nadhim Zahawi and lobby for increased support for the film industry, but few MPs had been forewarned. Stella Creasy spoke of amazement at seeing somebody who looked like her teenage crush before she realised that it really was him. Apparently amused by the fuss, »

Review: The Neon Demon

14 June 2016 10:43 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

To say Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest tour de force, The Neon Demon, is a masterpiece would be an understatement.  In between the exquisite neon colors, the impressive cinematography, and a score one would die to have, this film is a raw look at how the La lifestlye, zeroed in on the modeling industry, can erase one’s innocence and create a monster in its shadows.  I left the theater absolutely blown away by not only the imagery and beauty of the film but also the horror and depravity that human beings are capable of.

The Neon Demon centers around Jesse, a 16-year-old girl, who has recently moved to La to pursue her dreams of modeling.  As she circumnavigates the modeling world she soon finds out how dangerous her beauty and vitality can be to the women around her and how they will stop at nothing to achieve what she has.  The film stars Elle Fanning (Super 8), Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men”), Keanu Reeves (The Matrix), and Jena Malone (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2) and is accompanied by a mesmerizing score from the talented Cliff Martinez.

Everything about this film is done right.  From the acting, to the story, to the cinematography, to the music, this film encompasses beauty and despair all in one fell swoop.  With that said, there are going to be those who don’t understand what The Neon Demon is trying to convey.  The film can be polarizing if you aren’t sure what to expect, especially if you go in thinking you are about to watch a mainstream horror film.  There are definitely elements of horror sprinkled throughout the movie, eventually culminating in the climax, but for those who aren’t familiar with the style of art house films, they may leave the theater feeling disappointed.  When it premiered at Cannes there were mixed reactions from theater-goers as well as claims from people saying they walked out during the showing.  Luckily this wasn’t the case for me when I saw it at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica.  Though the crowd didn’t give a standing ovations when the film ended, there was an air of electricity and excitement buzzing about.  Regardless of if you loved it or hated it, one thing that the majority of the viewers agreed upon was that this film was a visual feast.

I’ve spoken a lot about the visuals of this film and that’s mostly because I had never seen anything like it before.  The colors were vibrant, the framing was unique, and the set and costume designs made my heart flutter.  Looking past the superficial beauty of the The Neon Demon, I was impressed with the acting from all the characters.  Ella Fanning as Jesse was superb.  She was able to portray the innocence that was needed to make this film work as well as show the viewers the cracks that were forming underneath the skin.  Keanu Reeves had one of his best roles to date as Hank, the sketchy Motel owner who preyed on those who were naive and lost.  However, Jena Malone as the makeup artist Ruby, stole the show.  She made the viewer want to trust her and you couldn’t help but believe the stories that she was stringing together.  Her character was dynamic and multi-dimensional and by the time the film was over she left you bleeding and raw.

There were times when watching the film that I couldn’t help but be disgusted.  It wasn’t because of the gore (as there isn’t much) but because there are people out there who are willing to do whatever it takes, regardless of the consequences, to get ahead.  La can be a dangerous town and though the story presented in the film is one we’ve heard many times, it doesn’t make it any less despairing.  There are so many aspects of this movie that made me feel troubled such as the loss of innocence, the pressure to feel accepted, narcissism and superficiality, and losing yourself to the neon lights in hope of fame and fortune.  This isn’t a story that has a happy ending or one that makes you leave feeling good about the world.  It takes everything that is wrong with the La scene and wraps it up in colorful tissue paper and presents it to you in a beautiful disguise hoping that you don’t see the poison seeping out.  Refn’s masterpiece is a raw and intense film that will leave the viewer feeling either distaste and disappointment towards the film or absolute awe and fascination towards a life we may never know about.

In conclusion, The Neon Demon is one of the best films I’ve seen in 2016.  It lends itself to a unique vision through the eyes of director Nicolas Winding Refn and doesn’t hold back or sugar coat the severity of narcissism.  Everything in life comes with the possibility of consequences, even such things as “true beauty”, and it’s intriguing to see these repercussions come to pass.  Though the film may not be for everyone, I think it will find its niche in the horror community and for those who are able to see the film for what it really is, an absolute beautiful tragedy.

Here's Why Matrix 4 Probably Won't Happen

30 May 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While The Matrix arrived in 1999 as one of the biggest movies of that year, changing the VFX game and becoming a true phenomenon, its sequels aren't as fondly remembered. It's been 13 years since fans sighed a bit of disappointment at 2003's trilogy ending sequel The Matrix Revolutions. And if you were hoping that Warner Bros. was getting ready to revisit the franchise any time soon, righting some of the wrongs the series made, as other long-awaited sequels have done, you can scratch that thought from your head.

Original Matrix producer Joel Silver has been making the press rounds in support of his latest movie The Nice Guys. And he candidly opened up about the possibility of continuing the Matrix franchise. It's not being planned at the moment. And it probably won't happen for a long, long time. So long, in fact, that we'll probably see a remake instead of a sequel. »

More Matrix Movies? Here's What The Trilogy's Producer Thinks

30 May 2016 11:38 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The way things work nowadays, remakes and reboots tend to clog the multiplexes. When Hollywood tries something original, like The Nice Guys for example, audiences basically overlook it in favor of the familiar . from another X-Men movie to the latest Marvel blockbuster. So you can understand why legendary producer Joel Silver was asked if one of his most successful film series, The Matrix trilogy, could ever extend, or even be remade. His answer gives me hope that the Wachowski.s vision will be left untouched.   As you likely recall, 1999.s The Matrix was such an inventive, genre-bending piece of science-fiction, the Wachowski Sisters immediately were tasked with creating a sequel. They took it one step further and crafted a trilogy, delivering The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. The sequels didn.t quite live up to the original film, but it doesn.t sound like anyone is going to get »

The Matrix

29 May 2016 10:06 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The (then) Wachowski Brothers genre bending thriller plays more levels of 3-D chess than perhaps Spock himself could have handled. The directors tapped into some mind-meld with moviegoers as well; The Matrix was a smash hit making way for two sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. Stylistically innovative and much copied, the film starred Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss as the slow-motion somersaulters of the matrix.

Actors who Almost Played Famous Roles

30 April 2016 4:14 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Did you ever see an actor/actress in a famous role and then hear later that they were not the first, or even the second choice to play the iconic part? Many of the legendary movie characters began as a vehicle for a different star than the one who we know-and-love in the part. Here are a few of the greatest examples of famous "Almosts'.

 Christopher Walken As Han Solo: George Lucas had a very hard time finding his Han Solo in Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). This character was the last of the lead figures to be cast. Lucas’ leading contender at one point was none other than Christopher Walken. Just think about the possibilities in that performance! However, a chance meeting with Harrison Ford (Who was working as a carpenter at the time) inspired Lucas to cast Ford in the part instead, which launched him into super stardom in the 80s. »
