Edgar Wright Lists His 1,000 Favorite Films Of All-Time: ‘Metropolis,’ ‘Annie Hall’ & More

27 July 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Edgar Wright is a multifaceted director, writer and producer known for his films “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” among others. If you’ve ever wondered what movies he watches and what are his favorites, now you’re in luck!

Wright created a list of his 1,000 favorite films. Yes, one-thousand movies! The list, compiled by Mubi, is composed chronologically starting with Robert Wiene’s 1920 film “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.” It’s unknown how long it took the filmmaker to create this catalog of classics, but it’s pretty interesting to see what’s on it.

The list has a variety of titles that would be a great place to start if you’re a film fanatic and want to do some research on classic cinema. It contains features from Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Woody Allen and many other great helmers. The list ends with »

Movie Review – Keanu (2016)

13 July 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Keanu, 2016.

Directed by Peter Atencio.

Starring Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Method Man, Tiffany Haddish, Luis Guzman, Nia Long, Will Forte and Jason Mitchell.

Synopsis:

Two nerdy cousins pose as notorious gangsters to infiltrate the criminal underworld in order to retrieve a stolen kitten.

 

The main trio behind this film – the two leads Jordan Peele and Kegan-Michael Key, and its director Peter Atencio – mark their first big-screen collaborative effort here, a significant departure from their previous sketch-off TV outing of Key & Peele, to produce an action comedy that hinges on a silly premise. Keanu may retain the teams chemistry, but their small—screen past cannot mask some of their shortcomings.

In an explosive opening sequence, one that calls back to 90s John Woo action films, the audience witness the efficiency of two long-haired assassins known as the Allentown Boys, who decimate a Mexican drug operation. The Allentown Boys appear to »

‘Keanu’ review: “Action, laughs & kitty cats”

11 July 2016 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Keanu is an action-packed comedy that falls somewhere between Harold and Kumar get the Munchies and Hot Fuzz. Keanu Review

Although famous comedians over the Atlantic, Key and Peele aren’t particularly well-known in England. This is set to change with the release of Keanu, a film which sees them desperately try to steal their precious kitty Keanu from a local gang of drug dealers.

Cousins Rell (Peele) and Clarence (Key) are at different crossroads in their lives; Clarence is a hard-working family man whose wife and daughter don’t respect him as well as they should, and Rell’s girlfriend has just left him. It’s at this point that we are introduced to a little, lost tabby tom cat, with whom Rell falls instantly in love. The kitten’s subsequent disappearance acts as a catalyst for both men to take a look at their lives and try to change them for the better. »

Robin Hardy, Director of The Wicker Man, Has Passed Away

2 July 2016 8:31 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Some very upsetting news is coming out of the UK this morning, revealing that Robin Hardy, best known as the director of 1973's The Wicker Man, has passed away. This was originally reported by BBC, who received word from a friend of the family that Hardy had died on Friday.

Robin Hardy released a spiritual successor to The Wicker Man back in 2011 and he had been in development on a third "Wicker" film that he teased would focus on "the gods getting their comeuppance." The Wicker Man, which Christopher Lee previously said is one of his favorite movies he performed in, is a personal favorite of mine and its importance in horror history and influence on the genre cannot be understated. Just to name a few, it's easy to see the film's influence on Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz, Ben Wheatley's Kill List, True Detective, and Radiohead's recent Burn The Witch video. »

Video Essays Highlights The Comedic Framing & Foreshadowing In Edgar Wright’s ‘The World’s End’

2 June 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While many comedic filmmakers are simply content to roll the camera and let the actors riff until the director yells “cut!,” Edgar Wright is renowned, via films like “Hot Fuzz” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” for a sharp understanding of camera movement and audio/visual editing. What you might not know is that Wright also uses cinematic technique to […]

The Wolverine 3 Adds The Office Co-Creator Stephen Merchant

27 April 2016 5:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

 

Last night we found out that British stage and screen legend Richard E. Grant had joined the cast of James Mangold’s follow up to The Wolverine as a “villainous mad scientist type.” Now, Deadline is reporting that none other than Stephen Merchant will be joining him – though this time we know even less about his character.

In fact, we know literally nothing. The trade doesn’t even mention if it’ll be a main or supporting role, but there’s already some speculation that he might be mutant shape-shifter, Morph. Yeah, we know….that’s not very likely.

Merchant is best known for his sitcom work with writing partner Ricky Gervais, but he has also had quite a few acting gigs, including roles in the likes of Hall Pass, Hot Fuzz and I Give It A year

The Office Actor/Co-Creator Stephen Merchant Joins The Cast Of The Wolverine 3

27 April 2016 4:59 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

They seem to be lining up a bunch of lanky Brits for Logan to hack through in The Wolverine 3. Last night we found out that Richard E. Grant would play a "villainous mad scientist type" in James Mangold's movie, and now Deadline reports that Stephen Merchant (Hall Pass, Hot Fuzz, I Give It A year) will join him - though we know even less about the character he'll be playing. And by less, we mean fuck all. There are no details provided whatsoever, and because we can't nail down any specific comic arcs they're drawing from, speculating about who it could be is difficult, too. Also starring are Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook and, of course, Hugh Jackman. The Wolverine 3 is to hit theaters on May 3, 2017. »

The Top 25 Funniest Actors of All Time

16 April 2016 7:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Who are the funniest, wackiest, cleverest, wittiest comic actors in the history of film and television? Take a look at our list and see who we came up with.

 

The top 25 laugh-getters…

 

 #25…George Carlin: Probably the best stand-up comedian of all-time. He brilliantly satirized American culture, mixing his liberal social commentary with an often unapologetically coarse and dirty style of language. His penchant for obscenities was most evident in his trademark routine “Seven words you can never say on television”. No one was better at mocking the excesses of American culture than Carlin.

 #24…Robin Williams: He had a manic energy and great improvisational skills. His hyper, free-form style inspired many comedians to follow, such as Jim Carrey. He shot to fame in the TV series Mork & Mindy, before breaking away to very successful movie career, appearing in films like Good Morning Vietnam, The World According to Garp, Mrs. Doubtfire and Popeye. »

Why are movie comedies getting so long?

23 February 2016 10:31 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Is the movie comedy that pushes two hours and change really a modern problem? And why are so many comedies so long?

Shakespeare wrote "Brevity is the soul of wit", which partly explains why there's only one good joke in Hamlet. John Michael McDonagh (Calvary, The Guard) said in an interview with this site “if it takes you two hours to tell a story you have failed as a filmmaker. 105 minutes tops is all you need if you're talented.”

The recent Tina Fey/Amy Poehler film Sisters is two hours long. While I enjoyed it, and laughed a lot, it starts to drag slightly in the middle of the party sequence, and feels like it might have benefited from a more brutal editing, killing some darlings and indulgence. It is a film with more to it than creating laughter, but not to the extent that it doesn't »

Charlotte Rampling Adapting Jane Austen, Daniel Radcliffe Sets ‘Jungle’ Adventure, and More

10 February 2016 9:14 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Coming off her well-deserved Oscar nomination for 45 Years, Charlotte Rampling has found a new project. Screen Daily reports that she’ll be leading an adaptation of Jane Austen‘s Sanditon, the first time it will come to the screen. Directed by Jim O’Hanlon and scripted by Simon Reade, it follows a summer at a sea bathing resort in which society can be seen at play. Production is set to kick off this summer for a likely 2017.

We’ve been patiently waiting for Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz, Macbeth) to follow up his impressive directorial debut Tyrannosaur with another feature and now it looks like he’s finally settled on one. THR reports he’ll direct and write Journeyman, a boxing drama starring himself as a world middleweight boxing champion who takes on one last fight and succumbs to a coma, but is then awakened and must deal with the repercussions. »

Movie Review – Point Break (2016)

8 February 2016 2:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Point Break, 2016.

Directed by Ericson Core.

Starring Édgar Ramírez, Luke Bracey, Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer and Delroy Lindo.

Synopsis:

A young FBI agent infiltrates a group of athletes he believes is responsible for a series of intricate robberies around the world.

Many of us have fond memories of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 thriller-slash-bromance (not least Edgar Wright, who lovingly lampooned it in 2007’s Hot Fuzz), but it’s hard to imagine this uninspired remake evoking that same sense of nostalgia for anyone in 15 years time. Admittedly, if you’re looking for a slice of disposable Friday night entertainment, you could do a lot worse, but if you’re looking for anything more substantial or satisfying than that, you will be left disappointed.

While this remake mostly sticks to the arc of the original film, there are a few minor tweaks. In this film, Johnny Utah starts off as an extreme sports athlete, »

Point Break review

It's no disaster, but there's still not much point to the remake of Point Break...

Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break was fairly successful when it hit cinemas back in 1991, pitting Keanu Reeves' rookie FBI agent against Patrick Swayze's impossibly cool surfing bank robber in a film that landed with audiences but was largely dismissed by critics.

Its uniquely sensitive spin on macho action movies has led to its reappraisal as a cult classic, thus making this remake pretty much inevitable. Few of us would have predicted that director/cinematographer Ericson Core would convert it into an extreme sports movie, but that's one of the only surprises to be had here.

After a tragic accident, former poly-athlete Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey) leaves the adrenaline junkie scene behind and applies to join the FBI. He's still on probation when he discovers that a daring gang of bank »

Point Break review – an empty rehash

7 February 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Even Ray Winstone can’t save this adrenaline-fuelled but shallow remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 classic

“Have you ever fired your gun up in the air and gone, ‘Aaaaaaaargh!?”’ Nick Frost asks Simon Pegg in Hot Fuzz, referencing an iconic Keanu Reeves moment from Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 crime-and-surfing classic Point Break. Inevitably, Pegg gets to do just that, replaying the scene to oddly touching comic effect. Now, Luke Bracey gets to do it too, in this adrenaline-fuelled but empty rehash that flies close enough to Bigelow’s movie to remind you how much you’d much rather be watching the original.

Emily S. Whitten: Seven Movies for Surviving Snowzilla

26 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past weekend we here in Washington DC got a lot of snow. Um… “A whole lot of snow”? …Okay, how about, “a metric ton of snow”? Ooh… “The fourth heaviest snowstorm dating to 1884.” There. I think that sums it up nicely.

Given this, I (not even kidding) have not left my home in five days (but I’m still sane! No really, I promise! The purple bunnies in my pantry told me so.) And of course, being a very practical person, since I knew the storm was coming I ensured I was well-stocked with all the necessary items beforehand. But then, around the end of Day 1, as the snowdrifts began inching into the two-foot range on my windowsills, I began to wonder what I would do to entertain myself if the power went out (taking with it, one might assume, the Internet).

“Ah-ha!” I said to myself. “I have »
