17 Posters for ‘The Hobbit’ and 7 Other Things You Should See Tonight

2 November 2012 7:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What is Movie News After Dark? It happens thrice times per week. It’s awesome. You can read it. Right now. We begin this evening’s marketing-heavy edition of Movie News After Dark with the absurdity of the day. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first in a new trilogy from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, now has seventeen character posters that can be ogled. It’s a little much, even for what may turn out to be the biggest film of the year. Above you’ll see Dwalin, a badass dwarf. Just after the jump, Gandalf and his fall collection. Over at Badass Digest, Film Crit Hulk is back with another splendid essay in which he takes on Plot Holes and Movie Logic. As always, those sensitive to capitalization are warned. Those with brains are encouraged. The lovely and talented Joanna Robinson at Pajiba has 41 Spoilerific Reasons Why I Loved That Beautiful Disaster Cloud Atlas »

Toronto Film Fest Day 9: Blood, Sex and Standing Ovations

15 September 2012 6:37 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

And the best movie to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival this year is … "Sightseers?" British director Ben Wheatley's black comedy, which deals with a couple whose vacation around the U.K. also includes a few murders, isn't one of the highest-profile titles at the festival. But when the Saturday Night at the Movies blog invited Twitter followers and Tiff journalists to list their three favorite movies at the festival, "Sightseers" (below) showed up on four of the 24 lists, more than any other film. "'Sightseers' takes what should be a »

Movie News After Dark: Sequels, Scarlett’s Pink Panties, Marvel’s Future and Flight of the Conchords Cure Kids

27 August 2012 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly movie news column that welcomes your feedback. Or your blind allegiance. Whichever you prefer, dear reader. We begin this evening with a new shot from season five of Fringe, a show I’ll dearly miss once it makes its exit after this upcoming season. The bastard son of a generation of J.J. Abramses raised on The X-Files, Fringe is still one of the most consistently interesting and energetic sci-fi shows on television. And it’s got John Noble, so that helps. 1. Sequeltology – That’s what Grantland is calling its quest to find the greatest movie sequel of all-time. In the announcement post, Chuck Klosterman talks about the rules, including the fact that “Teen Wolf Too is ineligible due to its attempt to popularize team collegiate boxing.” Fair enough. 2. Vera Farmiga is Mrs. Bates – The upcoming A&E series Bates Motel will examine the relationship between Norman »

Summer blockbusters: a lesson in rage

15 June 2012 5:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It used to be easy to get away with hating a popular movie, but marketing and spoilers have made it harder than ever to escape

We've all been there. Saturday night at the movies. You're in your favorite seat. Miraculously, you didn't eat all your chocolate raisins during the trailers. The audience around you are having the time of their life: whoops and hollers fill the air.

But for some reason – the dialogue, the bad CGI, the way the hero keeps developing the exact superpowers he needs to get him out of the particular mess he happens to find himself in – you're not enjoying yourself.

Afterwards, you dissect the movie with your friends only to find, to your horror, that they liked it, too. In fact, they loved it. They thought it was the best thing to happen to them since Trinity ran up a wall and scissor-kicked that cop in The Matrix. »
