Could 1990 comedy Home Alone be the best Christmas movie of all time? James lays out his argument...
Gremlins is great and Elf is ace. Bad Santa is bitchin' and The Muppets Christmas Carol is sensational, inspirational, celebrational and Muppetational. Die Hard is dead good, Miracle On 34th Street is magic and It's A Wonderful Life is truly, erm, wonderful.
None of them, though, can confidently state that they are the Best Christmas Movie of All Time. Only one film can claim that title, and that film is Home Alone, which is undoubtedly and without question the Best Christmas Movie of All Time. There's legitimate space for a debate as to whether Home Alone 2: Lost In New York deserves the prestigious label but, really, with Home Alone being the original article I think it's only right that we let it stand as number one.

Warner Bros already confirmed that it's working on an "Aquaman" film, which will star Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian) and will hit theaters on July 27th, 2018. Now, thanks to the Sony Pictures hack, we know that Warner Bros already has a director in mind. And that director is Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter). This is from an October 21st email between Michael De Luca of Columbia Pictures and Amy Pascal of Sony Pictures. It's not clear whether negotiations with Nichols already started, but there's still plenty of time to find a director. Meanwhile, Momoa will first appear as Aquaman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," and then return for two installments of "Justice League," which will hit theaters in 2017 and 2019. »
On Wednesday, the brand new trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road crashed in. Take a look at one of the best trailers you’re likely to see this or next year.
From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes Mad Max: Fury Road, a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

For those movie fans keen to return to the arid deserts of a post-apocalyptic wasteland, Warner Bros. has delivered your Christmas present early. In advance of its release next spring, we now bring you a new trailer for the eagerly-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road.
Revisiting the world first introduced to audiences back in 1979’s Mad Max, starring Mel Gibson, director George Miller amps up the action tenfold. The state of the world is much as it was then; society is on the brink of collapse due to global water and oil shortages and the savages are out to reap the benefits. Enlisting The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy in place of Gibson, this updated Max Rockatansky has new crazed adversaries to battle.
For the most part, the teaser orbits around the destruction caused by Nicholas Hoult’s larger-than-life villain, coming across like a spry version of the X-Men’s silent mutant, »

Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.
Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the »

“Everybody’s gone out of their mind. You’re not the only one, Max.” Moviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of director / writer George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters, and you can get a taste of the post-apocalyptic mayhem to come in the film’s new trailer.

Jason Momoa recently appeared at the Comic-Con Experience in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and opened up a bit about his upcoming role as Aquaman in the burgeoning DC Cinematic Universe. Now that the actor has been officially confirmed for the part, he’s stopped playing coy about his excitement and has dropped a few hints about what we can expect from his portrayal of the Atlantean hero.
When the Game of Thrones and Conan the Barbarian actor was first rumored for the role, it became abundantly clear that Zack Snyder would be bringing a meaner, tougher, and warrior-esque version of the character to the big screen. The director has already promised that Aquaman will be a badass, and now Momoa – a physically imposing, tattooed Polynesian – has repeated that sentiment:

Listen up, horror fans! Now that Marcus Nispel got his version of R-rated fantasy out of his system (read: Conan the Barbarian and Pathfinder), he's heading back to the horror genre with Backmask, a rock n' roll themed gore fest that hinges on the hoary old yarn about playing records backwards to reveal hidden messages.
While we don't have much on the project, Aith tracked down the film's opening title sequence designed by a company called Baird Design. To give you even more of a sense of what the film has in store, we've also added a stills gallery for th [Continued ...] »
Nineties giant snake movie Anaconda comes under James's microscope. Could it be more than just another scaly B-movie?
"You don't know shit about the shit we're in here!" Gary Dixon (Owen Wilson) in Anaconda. That sentence pretty accurately sums up most people's appreciation of both the movie Anaconda, life in general and the state of the Universe. When you've finished reading this article, you will know some shit.
Do you remember Anaconda? The 1997 killer snake film starring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube and Jon Voight? It had the tagline "When you can't breathe you can't scream"? It got nominated for six Razzies but, in spite of such ignominy, went on to become a cult hit and spawned three sequels?
Until a couple of weeks ago I didn't remember Anaconda because I'd never seen it. Somehow this pleasure had passed me by, and it existed as a sizeable hole in my pop »
Ever since we heard of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," there have been rumors that Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian) will either appear as Aquaman or will eventually get his own "Aquaman" movie. Warner Bros recently confirmed all the rumors, but prior to this, Momoa has been forced to deny everything. And now that the actor attended the Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta, he took the opportunity to make the first comments about his casting. "I don't have to be quiet anymore. It was really hard for me," he said, later adding: "As a Polynesian, our gods are tied to water, so this means something special. My family are some of the greatest hunters. I'm going to train with my family." Momoa continued: "I'm very excited to be a part of it. Zack Snyder is a genius." »
It was announced earlier this week that the King of the Seas is getting his own film, starring Jason Momoa, in 2018. Aquaman will not be alone in coming to the big screen alone. He’ll be bringing some friends and foes from under the sea with him.
After DC/Warner Bros. unrolled its all-star line-up of upcoming super hero films this week, one of the surprise announcements was the fact that the much-mocked Aquaman is one of the heroes who will be getting a live action adaptation within the next few years. Not only will the King of Atlantis be coming to your local cinema soon, he isn’t coming alone. The fan site, The Aquman Shrine, has tweeted the other characters that will appear in the film.
We've been told that 2018's Aquaman starring Jason Momoa will also feature Mera, Orm, Black Manta and The Trench! »

Jennifer Aniston, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Rose McGowan, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Brooke Shields, Janet Jackson ... these are just a few of the female stars who have posed naked or topless for Rolling Stone, and one if them is seriously regretting her provocative pose.McGowan and costar Rosario Dawson stripped down to some strategically-placed ammo belts to promote "Grindhouse" in 2007, but now -- 7 years later -- the actress is slamming her own cover and explaining how it's indicative of everything wrong with Hollywood."I just had this bouffant hairdo, this big bubble hairdo, this weird Photoshopped forehead that they gave me — I don’t know why exactly, because my forehead was fine, last I checked — and this dark fake tan," she tells The Wrap. "I’m chest-to-chest with Rosario Dawson and an ammo belt around my hip was the only clothing I had on. And I was like, 'Who is that? »

The worst secret in Hollywood is that Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian) will play Aquaman in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." We recently heard director Zack Snyder defend the superhero, stating that he has the power to take down Superman, and now we have a few more details about what to expect. "He's going to look like a surfer essentially with tribal tattoos," said SchmoesKnow. The site went on to say that Aquaman already made his presence felt in "Man of Steel." "You remember that scene in 'Man of Steel' when after [Superman] saves the men on the oil rig and collapses into the water, he wakes up and sees whales above him? Apparently, Aquaman sent the whales to save [him]." »
Alec Baldwin (The Departed, Mission: Impossible 5, Blue Jasmine) and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon, series, Saw, The Color Purple) headline the cast of Andron - a sci-fi, action adventure movie from Ambi Pictures Group, the movie development, finance, production and distribution group owned and run by Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi.
Iervolino and Lady Bacardi are financing and producing the film and Ambi's international sales arm, Ambi Distribution, is handling worldwide sales.
Franceso Cinquemani wrote the screenplay and is directing the film, marking his feature directorial debut.
Principal photography will commence this month in Malta, in collaboration with the Malta Film Commission, and in Italy.
The movie begins when a group of young men and women awake in a dark, claustrophobic maze. They don't remember who they are or how they got stuck in the black labyrinth of Andron. The group must learn to decipher codes, understand the signals, »
A few things that I have learned from action movies in recent years: don’t take Liam Neeson’s daughter, don’t pick on Jason Statham’s kids, and, apparently, don’t kill Keanu Reeves’ dog. That last discovery comes to us courtesy of the trailer for John Wick, an action movie coming out at the end of October that has received next to no publicity until right now.
John Wick stars Reeves as the titular character, a retired hitman who is pursued by an old friend contracted by a crime boss to kill him. This apparently involves killing off Wick’s dog, the last gift his wife gave to him. Predictably, Wick is not pleased about the loss of the puppy (it’s a cute dog) and sets out to take everyone down with as many guns and one-liners as possible.
Watching the trailer for this film is perplexing. »

At one time "Game of Thrones" and "Conan the Barbarian" actor Jason Momoa was slated to play Drax the Destroyer in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," a role that ultimately went to Dave Bautista who surprised everyone and stole the movie for some.
Momoa opted out of the role back in February 2013, a month later Bautista came onboard. So, at a point in late 2012/early 2013 when pre-production was partly underway, it was expected Momoa was going to play the role. At the time some very early concept art was being created and Momoa's likeness was being used for the Drax sketches.
Today, Marvel Studios concept artist Andy Park has released a shot of his work on designing Momoa as Drax, a Drax that sports a very different look to the one Bautista ultimately had in the final film.
