Spend New Year's Eve with These Genre Films

29 December 2014 6:35 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After diving into all the great Christmas-themed slashers and horror movies like Silent Night, Deadly Night, Santa's Slay, Christmas Evil, Saint Nick, and many others, it’s sometimes hard to believe there’s another great holiday to revel in just around the corner. There might not be as many films directly centered on ushering in the New Year, but there’s plenty to keep you entertained for a few days and nights.

I realize that not everyone smiles in glee like I do as teenagers get axed and knifed. Some folks just want some alternate choices in the face of all the countdowns and variety shows they’re bombarded with every year. The list I’ve put together includes not only slasher and horror flicks, but disaster, sci-fi, and action-oriented ones as well.

Cool Videos: How To Spend $1.5 Million On One Shot – The Opening Credit Sequence From ‘Poseidon’

7 August 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Remember the 2006 big-budget remake of The Poseidon Adventure, Poseidon? I remember not hating it, or loving it, but I also remember one of the coolest opening shots ever, a seemless shot that starts from under the ocean; that runs down the line of the epic cruise line, down onto a passenger out for a leisurely run. This was a shot that apparently cost $1.5 million. In this video released by the film’s second unit director of photography Mike Vargo, we get to see how they pulled it off using pre-viz and high-viz technology, followed by a massive wire-rig and green screen set in southern California with lead actor Josh Lucas.

It’s another of those videos which really break-down as to how these kind of wow-effects are done, and while you may not have enjoyed the movie, you may enjoy watching the filmmakers bring movie magic to the screen.

Take a look. »

The Definitive War Movies: 10-1

2 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here we are, at the top of the mountain. We’ve had plenty from every war imaginable, some supportive of war efforts, some not. But the more interesting war films really focus on the people; the internal struggles those men and women have about what they are doing. Whether made in America, Germany, the United Kingdom, or anywhere else, war is not just a battle between good and evil. It’s a life and death struggle between opposing sides that may not be that different. The movies at the top of this list may be subtle or straightforward, but each of them is a clear snapshot that lets audiences see what it means to fight, so they don’t have to.

Sony Closes Co-Finance Deal With Citigroup and Lone Star

8 April 2014 8:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures Entertainment has closed a $200 million slate deal, co-financed by LStar Capital, a credit lending affiliate Lone Star Funds, and Citigroup. Ben Waisbren, formerly of Virtual Studios, was the broker behind this deal, according to sources. Andrew Gumpert and Stefan Litt worked the deal on behalf of Sony.

The multi-year agreement closed Tuesday, and the $200 million includes both equity and bank debt to be applied to Sony’s upcoming slate including “22 Jump Street,” with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, “Think Like A Man Too,” “Sex Tape,” with Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, “The Equalizer” with Denzel Washington  and “The Interview,” to name a few.

The studio had previously been in talks with Blue Anchor Entertainment and was looking to raise more $350 million-$400 million in equity and another $300 million in bank debt. Those discussions never resulted in a deal. John Laviolette did not immediately return a request seeking comment.

Kurt Russell says Walker's death creating catastrophic 'Fast and Furious 7' rewrite

22 January 2014 10:10 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, Jan 23: Kurt Russell, who has joined the cast of 'Fast and Furious' franchise, has revealed that Paul Walker's death has created a "catastrophic situation" for the writers of the latest installment.

The 62-year-old actor said at the Sundance Film Festival that writers have to rewrite the script and are doing whatever they can to do to deal with the untimely death of Walker, the Daily Star reported.

Russell asserted that rewriting is the worst thing that could happen to a movie but it's not as bad as what happened to Walker who died in November 2013 in a horrific car crash.

The 'Poseidon' star added that. »

Boats that rocked: cinematic ships and their watery fates

21 January 2014 10:12 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With the news that the African Queen has become a tourist boat on the Nile, we look at other screen boats that have captured film fans' imaginations

Boats and films go together like the seaside and scampi. There's the 320-tonne steamboat in Fitzcarraldo that Werner Herzog famously had the film's extras cart over a hill to get it from one tributary of the Amazon to another. Then there's Kevin Costner's trusty trimaran in Waterworld, the U-96 of Wolfgang Petersen's Das Boot, Forrest Gump's shrimping vessel, and Jenny and One-Eyed Willy's ship, The Inferno, which the truffle-shuffling gang come across in The Goonies. This year, we'll be popping our life-jackets on again in readiness for another boat film, Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic Noah.

With the original African Queen now reincarnated as a tourist boat on the river Nile, we decided to take a look at what other »

This isn’t the first movie to get nods from both ends of the spectrum. Since the Razzies first began back in 1981, 47 movies have been nominated for both “awards”– some even for the same exact person or song. Here’s a look at the club The Lone Ranger just joined:
