5 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This October the London Film Festival brings a wonderful, eclectic mix of films, shorts and events to the capital once again. Firmly establishing itself as a people’s festival (it being the best of the other festivals, Clare Stewart and her team acknowledging they can’t compete on world premieres), it will look to build on last year’s impressive new direction.

From the opening night fun with The Imitation Game to the final push of Brad Pitt’s Fury there will be a number of essential films to catch. The HeyUGuys team have chosen their favourites from among the hundreds playing.

You can find everything you need to book tickets and find out more information right here.

Here are the films you need to see next month.

There is nothing more exciting than a filmmaker attempting to push the boundaries; to shatter audiences expectations of what is »

The Simpsons top 50 episodes

28 August 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob counts down the top 50 episodes of TV's longest-running animated series, The Simpsons...

Since its debut in 1989, across 552 episodes and 25 seasons, The Simpsons has become one of the most revered and beloved TV programmes of all time. It’s a true cultural phenomenon that’s influenced not just animation, but all areas of TV comedy and sitcom. For so many of us, its quotes and catchphrases have permeated our everyday vernacular, from single words like “crisitunity” and “embiggen” to phrases “you don’t win friends with salad” and “everything’s coming up Milhouse.”

Personal opinions may vary, but for me the show’s peak years were from season 4 through to 10. They’re consistently funny, all killer and no filler runs with barely a dud episode to be found between 1992-1998. Past this point the standard becomes a little more mixed, and recent seasons have been distinctly average at best. The »

10 On-Set Injuries You Won’t Believe Actors Worked Through

27 August 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Newmarket Films

Despite the diva image of the acting profession, a lot of them are actually surprisingly resilient. Part of their job includes putting themselves into scary and sometimes dangerous situations, and when they get injured, they’re often encouraged to keep working (especially if Stanley Kubrick is involved — that guy missed his calling as a psychotic drill sergeant). While stunt people are the ones who are putting themselves in the line of fire (sometimes literally), actors get hurt on set pretty frequently. While these are usually relatively minor incidents — pulling a muscle, spraining an ankle, burning a finger — every once in a while they get seriously injured, and end up with battle scars that they can brag about at parties for years to come. That is to say, if the mere thought of their injury doesn’t make them break out into hives (and we would totally understand if »

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 5 - HitFix Picks

24 August 2014 8:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] When folks complain that "The Simpsons" hasn't been good for 15 years, we normally mock them, but as we hit Day 5 of FX's Every Simpsons Marathon, even we have to admit that there is a small shift in quality. There are still great episodes in this period, which goes from "The Canine Mutiny" through "Maximum Homerdrive," but a couple of our intrepid recommenders only took one episode apiece for this period. And we have a trio of "skippable" episodes at the end of the article. Expect the ratio of classic-to-skippable episodes to even out in the last week of the Marathon. And some of the episodes in this period are kinda polarizing. Dave Lewis made "Homer's Enemy" one of this recommendations (and I'd be inclined to agree), but Frank Grimes hater Alan Sepinwall would have written a counterpoint had he had the time. Check out our recommendations for Day »

9 movies to watch on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25 - Troy, Airplane!

24 August 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's Bank Holiday Monday, and that can mean only one thing... parking yourself on the sofa for an epic movie marathon. There really is something for everyone, from shaggy dogs to sorcerers and space adventures.

Digital Spy rounds up nine films worth watching on TV today.

1. Beethoven - 9.25am, ITV2

Charles Grodin and Bonnie Hunt head up the Newton family, who find their lives flipped upside down with the arrival of a puppy who swiftly grows into a slobbering, troublemaking St Bernard. This is just about the best way to kick off Bank Holiday Monday!

2. Flash Gordon - 11.15am, More4

Arriving hot on the heels of Star Wars, this sci-fi adventure got panned by critics on initial release but has since acquired cult status thanks to some booming performances from thesps like Timothy Dalton and Brian Blessed, and Queen's thundering soundtrack.

3. The Sorcerer's Apprentice - 1.30pm, BBC One

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 4 - HitFix Picks

23 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Day 4 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon really is where the show hits its peak. It's possible that it can't equal the heights of Day 2 and Day 3, but there's a depth to the episodes between "Round Springfield" and "Grade School Confidential" that no other day can top. How good is this day? I even like the big Abe episode, "Raging Abe Simpson and His Grumbling Grandson in 'The Curse of the Flying Hellfish.'" How good is this day? We didn't even consider "Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment" and it includes the immortal line, "To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems." And we considered, but didn't write up "Homer's Phobia," with John Waters in one of the show's best guest vocal turns. And nobody even mentioned "El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)" even though Homer's Guatemalan insanity pepper hallucination is an aesthetic highlight. »

Box Office: Lessons From a Weak July 4th Weekend

7 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

1. Somebody really likes "Transformers." For a smash hit film series, Michael Bay's giant-robot franchise gets awfully little love, at least in public. It's like porn; everyone claims to find it loathsome, but in secret, someone is watching it and making it a huge success. Last week, of course, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" cruised easily to No. 1 because no other wide release film was willing to challenge it. This weekend, it faced three new wide release challengers and still came out far ahead of all of them. It lost 64 percent of last week's business and still grossed an estimated $36.4 million, more than $15 million ahead of its nearest rival, and enough for a ten-day total of $174.7 million. If everyone hates these movies so much, who are the 22 million people who've already paid good money to see the fourth installment? Show of hands, please, and don't be shy.

2. Eric Bana is not a movie star. »

Stalingrad Helmer Fedor Bondarchuk Snags Warner Bros.’ Greek Epic Odysseus

2 July 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first big-budget Russian blockbuster, WWII epic Stalingrad, was an absolutely stunning visual experience, and when it became the highest-grossing film in Russian cinematic history, it seemed pretty clear that we hadn’t heard the last of its director, Fedor Bondarchuk. Now, it appears that Warner Bros. has recruited the helmer to direct its big-budget Greek epic Odysseus, which aims to turn the classic tale transcribed in Homer’s The Odyssey into an action-packed spectacle.

Bondarchuk, the son of Oscar-winning helmer Sergei Bondarchuk (who received the Best Foreign Film Oscar for his movie War and Peace back in 1968), made Stalingrad for around $30 million, and the flick went on to gross $66 million, setting records in Russia. It was also the first Russian movie to be shot in IMAX 3D. Despite Stalingrad featuring a huge amount of battle sequences, Bondarchuk kept the budget low by staging everything without the use of green screen or extensive special effects, »

Stalingrad Director To Tackle The Odyssey

1 July 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A decade on from Wolfgang Petersen's Troy (adapted from The Iliad), Hollywood is finally getting around to Homer's other great epic, The Odyssey. Warner Bros. have set Stalingrad director Fedor Bondarchuk to work on Odysseus, the story of the titular Greek warrior-king-hero's return home from the Trojan War.300's Gianni Nunnari is among the producers, indicating that, to some extent, this is the same Odysseus that was developing as long as five years ago. There have been plenty of changes between then and now, however. Back in 2009, the screenplay was by Ann Peacock (The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe) and the thrust was not The Odyssey itself, but what happened to Odysseus after he got home to Ithaca.But the latest script is by Jeremy Doner (The Killing), indicating a new focus, and raising the possibility that we may see Odysseus dealing with Cyclops, sirens, Scylla and shipwrecks after all. »
