Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

R.I.P. Richard Kiel (1939 – 2014)

11 September 2014 5:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

American actor Richard Kiel – best known for his role as the towering steel-toothed henchman Jaws in the James Bond movie series – has passed away yesterday, aged 74. No cause of death has been released.

Born in Detroit in 1939, Kiel began his career in 1960 with a role in an episode of Laramie, before breaking into films in the early 60s with big screen appearances in the likes of House of the Damned, The Nutty Professor, Lassie’s Great Adventure and  The Longest Yard alongside TV shows such as The Twilight Zone, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Wild Wild West and Kolchak: The Night Stalker.

In 1977, Kiel made his first appearance as Jaws alongside Roger Moore in The Spy Who Loved Me, and became one of a handful of Bond villains to return for a subsequent movie, reprising the role for 1979’s Moonraker, as well as the 2004 video game James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing. »

10 September 2014 6:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Summer Movies Flashback 1999: 'South Park' surprise and scathing 'Star Wars' reactions

7 August 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our continuing look back at some of the biggest summers we've lived through takes us back 15 years to one of the best recent movie seasons overall. In honor of the 2014 summer movie season, Team HitFix will be delivering a mini-series of articles flashing back to key summers from years past. There will be one each month, diving into the marquee events of the era, their impact on the writer and their implications on today's multiplex culture. We continue today with a look back at the summer of 1999. It was the summer I became Moriarty. To be fair, I had been contributing to Ain't It Cool for a little while already by that point, and I had been slowly but surely embracing the potential of the website and the audience that I was reaching. I had already taken a few trips to Austin, including a memorable stay at the third Quentin Tarantino Film Festival, »

Movie Review – Mood Indigo (2013)

3 August 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mood Indigo (French: L’écume des jours), 2013

Directed by Michel Gondry.

Starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga and Charlotte Le Bon.

Synopsis:

Wealthy, inventive bachelor Colin endeavors to find a cure for his lover Chloe after she’s diagnosed with an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs.

I can honestly say I’ve never seen a film quite like Mood Indigo before. I’d be lying if I said everything I saw made sense, or if I could articulate what was happening and why, but director Michel Gondry has a truly unique style and it’s one I am certainly in favour of, but would not wish to see anyone else attempt it.

The plot is straightforward (to a degree) as Colin and Chloe, two hip Parisians, meet, fall in love, get married, and then Chloe is diagnosed with a disease, »

After Manimal, which other 1983 TV shows should Will Ferrell reboot?

29 July 2014 3:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor and comedian is planning to reprise the ultimate naff 80s action-adventure as a comedy. But there are plenty of others he could have gone for

Master of the secrets that divide man from animal, animal from man Manimal has been a symbol of TV naffness for so long that Will Ferrell producing a big-screen reboot feels almost pre-ordained. Repositioning it as a comedy is a smart way of leveraging the shows mushrooming online reputation try to keep a straight face while watching the original credits but whats really impressive is the fact that Ferrell has tracked down a TV show from 1983 that hasnt already been rehashed. The A-Team, Fraggle Rock, Bananaman, Inspector Gadget, LeVar Burtons Reading Rainbow and Bob Holnesss Blockbusters all debuted that year, and all have either been remade or are being prepped for some sort of comeback. ITV even rebooted Good Morning Britain, for all the good it did. »

Is Mark Wahlberg Universal’s New Six Million Dollar Man?

5 July 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

They can rebuild him. They have the technology. But will audiences even care? That’s the question that Universal is facing now, as The Tracking Board reports that the studio is trying yet again to assemble a reboot of the beloved 1974 series The Six Million Dollar Man

A remake of The Six Million Dollar Man has been in the works for decades. First came a screenplay from Kevin Smith in the 1990s that he eventually adapted into a comic book titled The Bionic Man. Then came a comedic take starring Jim Carrey from The Hangover writer/director Todd Phillips, followed by an attempt in 2006 from Richard Anderson (who had a supporting role in the original series), which never materialized due to a fight between Miramax and Universal over the rights to the property.  Universal then tried again in 2011, with Bryan Singer in the director’s chair and Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role. »

7 Sidekicks Who are Smarter Than Their Heroes

18 June 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s much to be mocked about sidekicks, one of the easier targets in film. We’re set up to picture a simultaneously meek and booming catchphrase-machine clad in a matching uniform, seemingly created solely to follow our protagonist around and hype them up on their journeys. While plenty of that variety exist, there’s a different and far more interesting breed of sidekicks who prove to be so much more — valuable assets who, really, are so much better than the leads in the first place. Here are seven sidekicks who are smarter and more capable than the heroes they’re supporting. Penny — Inspector Gadget For someone who’s designed to be the ultimate detective, Inspector Gadget isn’t all that bright. As the good inspector proves time and again through his various misadventures and bungled police cases, even if you’re a walking Swiss Army Knife you can’t “Go-Go-Gadget” common sense where none exists.

9 movies that prove why nostalgia isn't always a good thing

Remember that thing you loved from your childhood? It's coming back. We're not talking specifics here, we're talking everything.

New movies or TV shows revolving around everything from Scooby Doo to Ninja Turtles, Danger Mouse and Bananaman are on the horizon - you could accuse producers of running out of new ideas, but how long before they run out of old ideas?

Nostalgia can give you a warm and fuzzy feeling, but sometimes it isn't always a good thing. Digital Spy suggests 9 instances when looking back to the past resulted in a questionable present:

The Saint (1997)

A movie adaptation of popular TV series The Saint had been mooted for some time. It finally limped into cinemas in 1997 with Val Kilmer as Simon Templar - he was no Roger Moore, but let's face it, who is?

Besson Back in Toon Biz

13 June 2014 4:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Annecy — Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp is teaming with Gallic conglom Lagardere Active, a major French force in kids’ TV entertainment, to develop an animated 3D TV adventure series inspired by Besson’s “Arthur and the Invisibles” movie trilogy.

After EuropaCorp announced it was pulling out of feature animation – it released its last animation film movie, “Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart,” which will receive an open-air screening at Annecy Friday, on Feb. 5 – the “Arthur and the Invisibles” skein marks a return to animation, but in TV, where exposure to loss is far more limited.

Conceived as a 52 part, 15-minute seg series, “Arthur and the Invisibles” will target kids 5-8.

Series will take the set-up and main characters from the movies and indeed Besson’s children’s books, on which they were in turn based: the miniature Minimoys, a pacific tribe, are threatened by the dastardly warrior Maltazard; Arthur, whose lies over-ground with his grandmother, »

10 Most Unwatchable TV to Movie Adaptations

10 June 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

22 Jump Street is in theaters this weekend, and its one of the few TV-to-Movie franchises that has gotten it right. This comes after so many have gotten it really wrong! Adapting a hit television show to the big screen seems like it would be an easy thing. The source material is great, there's an existing audience, it should be money in the bank. But bigger does not mean better. There's more than enough examples of great TV turned into garbage cinema. So much so, there was a fair amount of difficulty and debate narrowing it down to ten, epically awful movies. Criteria had to be established. There must be a method to this madness. Terrible films like The Smurfs, Scooby Doo, Yogi Bear, or The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas still has an appeal to younger audiences who might actually be entertained by it. It does have some value.

Rage Review

10 June 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite all his Rage, he’s still just Nicolas Cage. And so, anyone puts down a few bucks to see this movie probably knows what they’re getting themselves into. Unfortunately for even the so-bad-he’s-brilliant actor’s most undemanding fans, however, this latest bargain-bin offering (previously titled Tokarev, after the make of a gun that winds up being integral to the story) is the worst thing that he’s ever been associated with. Not even the promise of more bizarre line readings and hilariously weird facial expressions to add to Cage’s already impressive collection of Wtf moments is enough to make Rage worth your time.

With a movie as completely devoid of merit as Rage, I’m not even sure where to start. As written by Jim Agnew and Sean Keller, the film is essentially a series of loosely connected action sequences, every one somehow less compelling than the last. »
