50 Greatest Comic Book Movie Adaptations

1 September 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When we asked our staff to vote on the best comic book movie adaptations, we were afraid the results would consist only of superhero films. While there are many superhero movies listed below, it is great to see a bulk of non-Hollywood films appearing on the list as well. We set out to compile a list of 50 movies but as it were, we ended up with 5 ties, and so the list consists 55 films instead. Let us know if you think we missed something. Enjoy!

55. The Adventures of Tintin

Spielberg’s first venture into animation is one of his best. Taking notes from the classic Raiders of the Lost Ark playbook, Spielberg crafted another spirited, thrilling, and always entertaining adventure. The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most pleasurable, family-friendly experiences, that boils down to one grand treasure hunt. There’s much to admire on-screen, but it is the spectacular »

13 August 2015 11:15 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The first trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3 was a hell of a thing (sure, it was the set up for one joke, but it was an absolutely fantastic joke), but it’s being all quite on the Po front since then. Well, all that changes with the latest poster finally landing, showing that the art of the pun is still alive and well at DreamWorks.

Brick by Brick, The House Mario Built: The Nes Days

27 July 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Nintendo Entertainment system was released in 1985 and retailed for $199 in the U.S.. The standard package included an 8-bit graphics console and two classic game controllers. Other bundles featured the Nes Zapper along with the supported Nes game Duck Hunt. If you were one of the luckier kids, your parents shelled out a few extra bucks for the Deluxe Set which featured all of the above, but also included the optional Robotic Operating Buddy, or R.O.B.. Nintendo released 17 launch titles, the first of 30 ‘black box games’, and they included 10-Yard Fight, Baseball, Clu Clu Land, the aforementioned Duck Hunt, Excitebike, Golf, Gyromite, Hogan’s Alley, Ice Climber, Kung Fu, Pinball, Soccer, Stack-Up, Tennis, Wild Gunman and Wrecking Crew.

‘Kung Fu Killer’ attempts to be something more, half succeeds

23 July 2015 4:39 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Kung Fu Killer (aka Kung Fu Jungle)

Directed by Teddy Chang

China/Hong Kong, 2014

A homicidal martial artist, a kung fu killer if you will, is on the loose challenging the best fighters in their discipline (boxing, kicking, weapons, etc.) to prove he alone is the greatest fighter on the planet. Hahou Mo, played by the phenomenal martial arts actor Donnie Yen (whose Yuen Wu Ping collaboration, Iron Monkey, is among the greatest in kung fu cinema), is serving a prison sentence for losing his control and killing a man, and just so happens to hold the title of the greatest fighter on the planet. Upon learning of the crimes, he offers his expertise to catch the madman before he kills again.

It’s a pretty straight-forward concept, and between the acrobatics and stunt works, director Teddy Chang and star Donnie Yen offer some concerns with martial arts’ place in »

First Look at Charlie Hunnam as 'King Arthur'

23 July 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This past week, Disney announced they are moving forward on a live-action remake of their classic animated adventure The Sword in the Stone. The story follows a young King Arthur as Merlin teaches him how to become a powerful leader. Warner Bros. is going to get their first, though, with their powerful medieval fantasy thriller Knights of the Round Table. Shooting has continued in England throughout this past year, and now Entertainment Weekly has our first look at it's leading man.

Charlie Hunnam plays the title monarch in Knights of the Round Table. The former Sons of Anarchy star proudly shows off his massive sword while lounging in, on and around the set of director Guy Ritchie's latest attempt to rebuff an ancient legend. It follows his other reboots Sherlock Holmes, which found much success with Robert Downey Jr. in the lead, and this summer's as yet unproven TV adaptation, »

100 Great Kung Fu Movies – Part 5 (20-1)

10 July 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

When it comes to making features like this one, i love the idea of coming up with my own personal “100 Great Kung Fu Movies” of all time. It is tough choosing just 100 because you know there are many more great Kung Fu movies that are not on the list.

I understand everyone will have their own personal favorites and some may not agree with my list and that’s fine because it’s nice to have different opinions on this genre which keeps it fresh and alive when having good debates.

Anyway, thank you for taking time to have a look at my 100 Great Kung Fu movie list and feel free to add any movies in the comment box if they don’t make my list (I have probably forgotten many movies).

Number 1 is based on the choreography and overall movie which to me is a prime example of of »

Fantasia 2015 Must See Films (Week One)

9 July 2015 8:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

My original plan was to publish a list of my ten most anticipated films screening at the Fantasia Film Festival but considering the incredible line-up this year, I find it near impossible to narrow it down to only ten. So instead I’ve decided to select one movie a day, or better yet, the movie that you should choose if you only had time for one.

Day 1. Tangerine

Christmas Eve in Tinseltown!

If you’re not familiar with director Sean Baker start taking notes. The man is a genius and one of the best indie American filmmakers working today. In Starlet, Baker spun an unlikely friendship between a young porn actress and an old lady in the San Fernando Valley. In Prince of Broadway, he chronicled the struggles of a hustler balancing fatherhood while working in New York’s wholesale district. Baker’s work avoids labels by refusing to adhere »

100 Great Kung Fu Movies – Part 4 (39-21)

7 July 2015 2:07 PM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

When it comes to making features like this one, i love the idea of coming up with my own personal “100 Great Kung Fu Movies” of all time. It is tough choosing just 100 because you know there are many more great Kung Fu movies that are not on the list.

I have decided that to make the list, a movie must have a few hand to hand moments during fight scenes in the movies chosen. If for example its mainly sword play with one fight scene hand to hand it won’t make the list. Its old school “style” Kung Fu movies, not modern day settings.

I understand everyone will have their own personal favorites and some may not agree with my list and that’s fine because it’s nice to have different opinions on this genre which keeps it fresh and alive when having good debates.

Film Review: ‘Monk Comes Down the Mountain’

4 July 2015 10:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tracing a Taoist priest’s foray from his hermit-like existence into the secular world, Chen Kaige’s “Monk Comes Down the Mountain” is an uncharacteristically lightweight martial-arts caper with a touch of Zen (and sin). Told in the old-school tradition of wuxia serial novels, the film’s simple fable of good and evil unfolds with wondrous visuals that recall the stylistic chutzpah of Chen’s “The Promise,” but absent that pic’s kitschiness. The feast of fighting styles on display will easily woo core Asian genre fans and conquer ancillary markets, and despite the gloomy fates of equally virtuoso martial-arts movies like “Wuxia” and “Reign of Assassins” in China, domestic B.O. looks encouraging; “Monk” took in $7 million on opening day.

Based on a widely read martial-arts novel by author-helmer-scribe Xu Haofeng (“The Sword Identity,” “Judge Archer”), who co-wrote Wong Kar-wai’s “The Grandmaster,” the film is set in Hangzhou during the turbulent 1930s. »
