100 Essential Action Scenes: Swordfights

23 hours ago | 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. »

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. »

10 Reasons Why Charlize Theron in 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Is the Badass Successor to 'Alien''s Ripley

11 May 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Ever since “Alien” clamped itself upon our cultural psyches — much like the outer-space thriller’s frightening facehugger in 1979 — many of us have been patiently waiting for another actress to stand out in a role that equals, if not tops, Sigourney Weaver’s take-charge she-warrior Ripley: A female who is fierce without having to compromise her gender or be upstaged -- or worse, rescued -- by a male cohort. In other words, a sister who does it for herself while also saving the world. Many have tried, from Brigitte Nielsen (“Red Sonja”) and Halle Berry (“Catwoman,” Storm in the “X-Men” films) to Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) and Milla Jovovich (the “Resident Evil“ series). A few have come close, including Linda Hamilton in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” Uma Thurman in both “Kill Bill” volumes, Angelina Jolie in “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and its sequel, Jennifer Lawrence in “The Hunger Games” franchise, »

Lena Dunham’s the Latest Star to Join T. Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Video

10 May 2015 11:27 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" music video is really turning into quite the ordeal. The singer has so far announced seven guest roles in her hyped-up project, which will include model Lily Aldridge, actress Zendaya, Paramore front woman Hayley Williams, model Gigi Hadid, singer Ellie Goulding, and — most recently revealed — actresses Hailee Steinfeld and Lena Dunham. From the posters, "Bad Blood" looks like it's going to be a wild mix of something Sin City–ish and Kill Bill–sy, maybe with a pinch of Lady Gaga's "Telephone" sprinkled on top. All of Swift's friends have interesting names, of which Swift has noted, "Each individual actor/actress chose their character's name and persona." She is Catastrophe because obviously she is:And here are everybody else's badass "Bad Blood" posters and characters so far: Directed by Joseph Kahn, Swift's "Bad Blood" will unspool on ABC during Sunday's broadcast of the Billboard Music »

5 parts of the Marvel universe practically begging to be TV shows

8 May 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last night, ABC announced a lot of great news for Marvel fans. Both “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “Agent Carter” were renewed for another year. But there was one casualty: the S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off starring Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) and Hunter (Nick Blood) is dead in the water. Considering even fans like myself were questioning the need for Two shows starring S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, this isn’t too much of a surprise. However! Perhaps now ABC will be looking for another Marvel property to acquire and bake into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Lucky for them, I happen to have this handy list of Marvel lore just begging for the small screen treatment!   #1.

Taylor Swift to Debut "Bad Blood" Music Video at Billboard Music Awards!

7 May 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

More of your dreams are coming true, Swifties! Taylor Swift will be opening the Billboard Music Awards with the debut of her music video for the song, "Bad Blood." She announced the news on Instagram Thursday, sharing a teaser of herself dressed as a character named Catastrophe. Donning a leather jacket and bold makeup, T.Swift seems very Kill Bill-like (or Quentin Tarantino­-esque). She also tweeted the announcement with the same poster attached. "Band-aids don't fix bullet holes," the tagline reads, which, of course, is an allusion to the song's lyrics. The video was directed by Joseph Kahn, who also worked with her on the video for "Blank Space." According »

Why 1973 Was the Best Year in Movie History

30 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. It’s perhaps a little quaint to choose a year that I wasn’t even alive during to represent the best year of cinema. I was not there to observe how any of these films conversed with the culture around them when they were first screened. So, although I am choosing the glorious year of 1973, I am choosing not just due to a perusal of top ten lists that year—but because the films that were released that year greatly influenced how I engage with movies now, in 2015. Films speak to more than just the audiences that watch them—they speak to each other. Filmmakers inspire each other. Allusions are made. A patchwork begins. These are the movies of our lives. Having grown up with cinema in the 90s, »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Watch: Quentin Tarantino Supercut Highlights the Filmmaker’s Driving Shots

22 April 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A Quentin Tarantino film is unmistakable, and for good reason. The filmmaker has developed a signature style over the years that carries with it a number of tropes that are quintessentially Tarantino, including plenty of driving shots. With that in mind, Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney has now taken it upon himself to put together a supercut of all the driving shots from Tarantino’s filmography, from Reservoir Dogs to Django Unchained (yes, there’s a driving shot in Django Unchained). It’s a fun video that serves to highlight Tarantino’s technique while also reinforcing his talent behind the camera, with some of the same shots being repurposed in multiple films and others serving as one-offs. It also reminds me that, while maybe not as great as the rest of his filmography, Death Proof is an underrated oddity that I must revisit soon. Watch the Quentin Tarantino supercut video below, »
