10 minor movie characters who stole the show

3 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sometimes, it's the supporting players who get all the love. From "Bridesmaids" to "The Wedding Singer" to "Kill Bill," minor movie characters have been known on occasion to steal the spotlight from their top-billed counterparts; hell, sometimes they even get their own movie (see: next weekend's "Despicable Me" spinoff "Minions"). It's not to say that they run away with the entire film -- there are few, if any, examples of that in the list below -- only that they garnered enough cult, standalone fame to become iconic in their own right. For the record, supporting actors aren't what we're talking about here. As much as we love Ducky from "Pretty in Pink," for example, he's an integral part of the plot and appears in far too many scenes to qualify. With that in mind, check out 10 of our favorite scene-stealers in the gallery below. »

Round-Up: Watch The Vatican Tapes Featurette, Real Fake History Episode, Fear The Walking Dead Teaser

1 July 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Warning: the power of Christ may compel you while watching the new featurette from the Neveldine-directed film The Vatican Tapes. Also showcased in this round-up: "The Battle of Endor" episode of the Real Fake History series and a teaser for Fear the Walking Dead.

The Vatican Tapes: A spiritual showdown between Father Lozano (Michael Peña) and a powerful demon takes center stage in director Mark Neveldine's (Crank, Crank: High Voltage) The Vatican Tapes.

"The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil- God versus Satan. Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s all up to Father »

Review: Bound To Vengeance

29 June 2015 4:09 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Women in peril only to exact vengeance on the men who do them wrong is pretty much its own genre now, especially in the horror community. What’s unfortunate is it is commonly used as a motif to allow plenty of screen time for graphic rape sequences. While it can add to a movie’s overall arc, there are far too many examples of the revenge aspect taking only a fraction of the running time in comparison to the abuse. Does this make the revenge that much more satisfying? Maybe. Quentin Tarantino makes a career out of putting his heroes through hell and back, only to lead to often violent consequences. However, he never makes the torture on his heroes appealing or pornographic. In Kill Bill: Volume One Buck takes a beating before he is ever able to lay a finger on The Bride. He never rapes her, but »

Jovy Skol’s Five Favorite Revenge Films

22 June 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Editor’s note: Friend of Icons of Fright, Jovy Skol, wrote this little list of his five favorite revenge films. Filled with everything from multiple countries, his picks are pretty solid, and worth checking out if you have yet to do so. -Jerry

Cannibal Holocaust

An American film crew disappears in the Amazon rain forest while filming a documentary on a cannibal tribe. A rescue mission ensues and the crew’s footage is uncovered, revealing a unconventional colony perverted by Americans who stage some horrific events in order to create excitement for viewers. The natives don’t take kindly to these strangers and show the Americans what happens when you fuck with them. Cannibal Holocaust comes with a lot of baggage, but is worth watching at least once, leaving viewers with the closing line, “Who are the real cannibals?”

17 June 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jurassic World is shattering box office records across the globe, but what happened to the stars of the movie that kick-started it all? Steven Spielberg's 1993 classic Jurassic Park was flawlessly cast, mixing well-known stars and fresh faces in a perfect blockbuster thrill-ride.

With Jurassic World overhauling its stars entirely (just two remain from the original), we take a look back to find out what the stars of Jurassic Park are doing now...

Sonny “Sundown” Garcia is the top cocaine distributor in the United States, which has made him a very rich and powerful man. It has also made him plenty of enemies. John Doe is just such a man. A nameless man of mystery, John lives to see Sundown not just dead, but to suffer six meaningful losses before his death—his fortune, his freedom, his love, his reputation, his most valuable possession and, finally, his life. John hires six hit-men, each one assigned to inflict one of the six meaningful losses upon Sundown. Starring: Vinnie Jones (X-Men: The Last Stand, Swordfish), Dominique Swain (Face/Off, Lolita), Vivica A.

How Hollywood soundtracks repeat the same old tune

9 June 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

If you see a movie for the first time and swear you've heard the score before, it may not be your imagination...

Last month, the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada (Afm) sued six major studios for reusing film soundtracks in other films without paying the appropriate compensation. It's the kind of news that will make people roll their eyes. Ah yes, they'll say after seeing the headlines. Typical Hollywood. Not even the music's original any more.

But go beyond the headlines about reusing the same music too much and delve into the lawsuit and it reveals an interesting insight into the kind of situations where music does get repeated.

The lawsuit, it soon becomes evident, isn't about the use of music in itself (a quick browse through the soundtracks for the titles in question, such as This Means War or Argo, reveals that they have »

5 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you had any doubt that Sense8 was partially the product of Matrix directors Andy and Lana Wachowski, the first episode of Netflix’s trippy thriller likely put that uncertainty to rest.

Co-exec-produced by The Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski (Murder, She Wrote, Babylon 5), the mysterious drama — which hit the streaming giant on Friday — centers on eight individuals across the globe who are connected by a strange vision.

Before we get your thoughts on the series premiere, here’s a brief recap of what went down in the debut hour:

Quentin Tarantino Spoils La Cinephiles with New Beverly's June Program

28 May 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Quentin Tarantino's 35mm movie haven, now 37 this year, ditched digital last Fall when he took over programming. Despite skepticism of this celluloid model, Tarantino's $8 35mm double features work with La audiences. (Last month, I attended a near-packed screening of Atom Egoyan's "Exotica." Who knew?) New Beverly's June program looks delicious to any La movie maven. From Hitchcock to Godard, Bogdanovich to Billy Wilder, there's a lot to love here. Diehard "Kill Bill" fans can catch "Vol. 2" every Friday in June at midnight. It's hard to believe that film is already over 10 years old.

100 Essential Action Scenes: Swordfights

27 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Sword fights, like one-on-one fights, target the emotion and power of each individual fighter, but are amplified by the extension of their weapon. Whereas one-on-one fights test the might and bronze of our competitors, sword fights add an extra element of intelligence and skill. A fighter can scrape by through luck in a brawl of fists, but a sword (and knife) fight exposes the true strengths and weaknesses of its opponents.

Cool Stuff: Craig Drake Solo Show II Featuring Star Wars, Tron, Sherlock, Kill Bill & Pulp Fiction

26 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Craig Drake‘s work can stop you in your tracks. Drake uses what feels like a bare minimum of elements to perfectly represent his subject in a striking and distinctive way. You might call it “minimalist,” but that would be a discredit to the energy contained in each piece. In 2014, Drake had a very-well received solo show at the Hero […]

Wamg Interview: Christina Lindberg – Star of They Call Her One-eye

21 May 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The doe-eyed , baby-faced Swedish actress Christina Lindberg is best known for starring as Frigga in the 1974 rape and revenge classic Thriller, A Cruel Picture, which was released in the U.S. under the title They Call Her One Eye. Born in 1950, the voluptuous Ms Lindberg was an incredibly popular nude model in men’s magazines before beginning her movie career, which lasted from about 1970 to 1975. Her debut was the 1971 hit Maid In Sweden followed by more successful “soft-core” sex dramas such as Anita The Swedish Nymph, Exposed, Campus Swingers, Swedish Wildcats, Young Playthings and a dozen or so more. She went to Japan in 1973 and co-starred in Sex And Fury and Sex In Japan. Otherwise all of her movies were made in Sweden where she has lived her entire life. Christina refused to act in the hardcore sex films that began to dominate the industry by the mid-1970’s and »

100 Essential Action Scenes: One vs. Many Fights

You know an action hero is the baddest of badasses when he or she walks in and the room goes silent. The drug lord’s bodyguards, the mastermind’s henchmen, or even the foolhardy pack of drunkards outside a roadside bar stand at attention, ready for a challenge. It’s just one person. This shouldn’t be too hard. Seconds later, they’re on the ground nursing bruises, or worse, stumps where their arms and legs used to be. The One vs. Many Fight is the chance for the hero to prove »

100 Essential Action Scenes: One on One Fights

19 May 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

A good fight scene is built into the fabric of an action film such that you can sense it coming like a storm on the horizon. It’s in the details of the opponents: the cracking of knuckles, the puffing of chests, the staredowns that say, “It’s about to go down.” A good fight scene makes you want to cover your eyes yet is impossible to look away from. You get tingly waiting for the violence to erupt, and if it’s done its job, you come away dizzy, invigorated, or even nauseated. »

Retaliation | Blu-ray Review

19 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Prior to helming a trio of the Meiko Kaji starred Stray Cat Rock series, the fourth and final film in the Female Convict Scorpion series, or a number of violent pink films after Nikkatsu studios slid into the gutter of softcore porno flicks, director Yasuharu Hasebe began his career with a trio of yakuza action quickies featuring budding genre standbys Jô Shishido and Akira Kobayashi. The second and third, 1967’s Massacre Gun and 1968’s Retaliation, respectively, have been lovingly released for the first time on home video by Arrow Video, restoring bit by bit Hasebe’s rather spotty oeuvre by highlighting his knack for stylish economy in his early work.

Essentially a downbeat yakuza film that covers all the basics in warring gangs over territory and reputation, Retaliation is unique in that it also dabbles in enemy bromance and the inevitable overtaking of nature by the unstoppable force of industry. »

Taylor Debuts 'Bad Blood'

18 May 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

After nearly two weeks of teasing fans with posters from her "Bad Blood" music video, Taylor Swift debuted the star-filled clip on Sunday.

The superstar premiered the video at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

The action-filled video follows what happens when Taylor's Catastrophe character is double-crossed by Selena Gomez's Arsyn and then sets out to get revenge.

Photos: Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Posters

The "Sin-City"-esque video (also with nods to "Kill Bill" and "Tron") includes appearances by Mariska Hargitay and Ellen Pompeo (whose primetime characters inspired Taylor's cats' monikers), Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Cindy ...

From Kill Bill to Tron, did you spot the movie references in Taylor Swift's Bad Blood video?

18 May 2015 4:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Taylor Swift's just-released 'Bad Blood' music video is positively jam-packed with movie references. From Kill Bill to The Hunger Games, Taylor and promo director Joseph Kahn have obviously been rummaging through their DVD collections to bring together their latest opus.

Digital Spy rounds up 7 movie hat tips from the star-studded 'Bad Blood' video below...

1. Kill Bill

Remember the Crazy 88s from Kill Bill? 'Bad Blood' kicks off with Taylor and Selena Gomez taking down some goons who look like they're straight from a Tarantino flick.

2. Sin City

That Bad Blood font is pure Sin City.

3 and 4. Prometheus / The Fifth Element

The body scanner looks a lot like the medical bay from Prometheus, and Taylor's outfit is taking its cue from Milla Jovovich's Leeloo attire in The Fifth Element. Fast-forward the vid and you'll find Hayley Williams's Crimson Curse in a red Leeloo wig. »
