The Essential Movies & TV to Stream This Week – September 15th 2014

15 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

First of all, something of an apology. I have been writing this column thinking that every single title due for release the following Monday would of course be released via some kind of pay to stream service. Of course it would, we are living in the future, and this is how things are done isn’t it?

Apparently not, last week I included Jeremy Saulnier’s much loved Blue Ruin in the pay to stream section and then it didn’t come out the way I thought it might. Turns out that some companies still have a fairly limited release pattern so Blue Ruin was released by channel 4’s DVD label and appeared on DVD and Blu but didn’t show up to stream on any of the major providers, not even Sky Store or Playstation Network.

So turns out that being a channel 4 release, you can of course rent »

New Trailer Enters the House of Manson

27 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Four decades removed from the Tate murders, Charles Manson is one of those names that are entirely too capable of sending many a shiver down the spine. On tap right now we have the trailer for the latest film to explore his madness, Brandon Slagle's House of Manson. Check it out!

From the Press Release

House of Manson chronicles Charles Manson's life from childhood up until his arrest following the raid on Barker Ranch months after the infamous Tate/Labianca murders that sent a shockwave not just through Los Angeles but throughout the entire world.

The film was written and directed by Brandon Slagle, who was recently deemed the "go-to-gore-guy" by The Hollywood Reporter during their coverage of the European Film Market. While not a "gory" film, House of Manson is poised to take a more intense approach to the subject matter than previous film and TV iterations have. »

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar nomination for Planet of the Apes

17 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's the 1969 Academy Awards, and Walter Matthau and a tuxedo-clad chimp present John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for his work on Planet of the Apes. Viewed in retrospect it's one of the more surreal presentations in the ceremony's history, but this was something of a landmark event for the industry. It was only the second time the Academy had dished out a prize to make-up artists (William J Tuttle won four years earlier for 7 Faces of Dr Lao), and it highlighted the growing importance of Hollywood's backstage creative artists.

Fast-forward 45 years and prosthetics are giving way to digital pixels - for characters that require a complexity of movement and expression, performance capture technology gives a director the scope to execute their vision by marrying an actor's performance with visual effects. In its basic form, the actor will strap on a bodysuit that's wired up to a computer. All their »

The James Clayton column: James explores the path to Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, and where we might be heading next...

Feature

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is a film about apes. The title isn't misleading or a metaphor or anything. This is a movie about primates and though there are human protagonists sharing screentime and functioning as significant pieces in the plot, it's very much an ape affair. Key characters - Caesar, Cornelia, Koba - are all chimpanzees.

Actually, that's not completely true. In fact it's a damn dirty ape lie for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is a work of great deception. This fresh bestial blockbuster employs the most state-of-art moviemaking technology to achieve its trickery, ironically bringing the primitive world to visceral life on screen by using the most advanced techniques available.

The truth about those convincing, hyper-real chimpanzees? Caesar is played by Andy Serkis, »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Walks The Walk For Robert Zemeckis In New Behind-The-Scenes Shot

14 July 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today, we’ve received our first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt as daredevil Philippe Petit in Robert Zemeckis’ The Walk. And though it’s in no way an official shot from the movie, hailing from Facebook, we’re still excited to see Gordon-Levitt in character for the first time.

Though we personally preferred the title To Reach the Clouds for Zemeckis’ upcoming film about Petit, who in 1974 successfully strung a wire between the twin towers of the World Trade Center and walked across it, the Flight director could really call his film whatever he wanted and we’d still go see it. After all, he’s recruited a tremendous actor in Gordon-Levitt, and his supporting cast is also stellar. Gordon-Levitt is pictured above with co-star Charlotte Le Bon, but The Walk also stars Ben Kingsley and James Badge Dale.

It will probably be a while until we see a trailer for The Walk, »

​The 13 Best Motion-Capture Performances Ever (Video)

8 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Motion-capture acting is a relatively new art form; after all, it's only in recent years that we've had computer-generated imagery good enough that it can transform the movement of a performer wearing a rubber suit covered with sensors into a digital character that moves and behaves like an actual human being. Or like an animal with a human-like intelligence, as in this weekend's release "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes."

In that film, as in 2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," the simian leader Caesar is a digital creation based on the movements of Andy Serkis, universally recognized as the king of motion-capture acting for his work in Peter Jackson's movies (from his Gollum in the "Lord of the Rings" movies to his King Kong in Jackson's 2005 remake). Many critics have praised Serkis for proving that viewers can be moved by digital performances as much as by live-action ones, »

10 Questions We Have About the New 'Maleficent' Trailer

18 March 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Every once in awhile I'll see someone post on Facebook about the new "Maleficent" movie with a comment amounting to "Omg Looks So Good" or "Love. I Can't Even." Here's the thing: I can even. I'm as gripped as anyone by Angelina Jolie's meringue-like cheekbones and Elle Fanning's china doll emotions, but I can't be sure we're in the presence of an awesome spectacle yet, even in exclusively campy terms. Something about "Maleficent" seems like the drama club president cousin to "Oz: The Great and Powerful," which was star-studded but deeply dull. I'll try to keep my hopes up, but I also have these ten questions that require answers.  1. Can a movie be creepy when every frame of animation is so pristine? There is a "just so" quality about the coloring, animation, and detail in this trailer; nothing feels even slightly out of control, and I wonder if »

Crispin Glover on Playing With His Public Persona and How He Goes About Forming His Oddball Characters

27 February 2014 7:51 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There was no one quite like Crispin Glover when he broke out onto the scene in 1986's award-winning "River's Edge" -- and the same rings true today. Glover has over the years played a list of characters almost as odd as the public persona he's cultivated since first appearing on "The David Letterman Show" in 1987 wearing platform shoes and a wig. He played a geeky dad in "Back to the Future," a silent and perverted assassin the "Charlie's Angels" movies, a loathsome monster in "Beowulf," a mouse-loving social misfit in "Willard," and in this month's "The Bag Man," Glover steals scenes from John Cusack as Ned, a mysterious wheel-chair bound motel receptionist. When he's not acting, Glover makes and tours his own films, and publishes his own books through his publishing company, Volcanic Eruptions. Indiewire spoke with Glover about "Bag Man" (out in select theaters this Friday), cultivating his public persona, »

Book Review Rewind: Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things

13 February 2014 5:19 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

In this fictional world built upon novels and series of novels, I may be considered obtuse for stating that what raises Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things (and indeed its predecessor, Smoke And Mirrors) above so much other contemporary fiction lies in its format: the short story collection. It is my favorite artistic medium, and there is no better form for Neil Gaiman. I would go so far as to say that it is suited to him even better than the graphic novel, for which he is so often revered. Some of these stories, when adapted into comics, are still enjoyable that way, but lose something when taken out of the context of their counterparts.

And what of the long form? Gaiman is a consummate storyteller, to be sure. So his novels, carried away on a single idea, feel stretched thin, like using the standard amount of salt for a doubled recipe. »
