Movies to Show My Son: ‘Spider-Man 2′

3 July 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Welcome to another installment of Movies to Show My Son. This is the blog series where I discuss movies I can’t wait to show my son in the future. I’ll be covering my own personal experience with the movie, movie and life lessons I hope he will learn, and lastly my concerns about showing said film. This week’s film is Spider-Man 2.

My Memories:

When I think back to when I first saw Spider-Man 2 I become nostalgic for a much simpler time watching movies. Comic book movies were in their infancy and no one was complaining about superhero fatigue. There was just unmitigated excitement for the next big movie we were going to get. I remember even thinking Daredevil was a good movie the first time I saw it just because I was excited to see these characters on the big screen. Also, we were having »

Watch Ellen Page in New Flatliners Trailer: Does It ... Flatline?

13 June 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Remake has evidently become a dirty word in Hollywood; the preferred marketing description is "re-imagining" or "re-thinking" or "re-revision" or somesuch nonsense. In any event, a new version of Flatliners is on its way and the first trailer has been unleashed. Two aspects draw my attention. The first is Ellen Page, who has the lead role and looks very authentic; the actress has been focusing on indie films like Into the Forest and Freeheld and Tallulah of late, and it's a pleasure to see her at the center of a big Hollywood production. (I can't help remembering that she was touted for the lead in Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell, and this reminds me of that.) The second aspect is the presence of Danish...

‘Get Out': Watch Jordan Peele’s Much Darker Alternate Ending (Video)

18 May 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for “Get Out.” Every horror movie fan knows about the bait-and-switch ending: The hero looks like he has escaped the danger, only for a shocking final twist to send him hurtling to his doom. Sam Raimi used it in both “Evil Dead” and “Drag Me To Hell,” “Black Mirror” makes frequent use of the trope, and, as it turns out, Jordan Peele almost used it for his breakout hit “Get Out.” An alternate clip for Peele’s popular horror film shows how the comedy star-turned-horror filmmaker originally planned for Chris’ horrific visit to his girlfriend’s family to. »

The Conjuring 2 Spinoff The Nun Adds Bonnie Aarons to the Cast

27 April 2017 7:50 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A familiar face from The Conjuring 2 is coming back to reprise her haunting role in The Nun.

According to THR, Bonnie Aarons (Drag Me to Hell, Mulholland Drive) will once again play the demonic nun in New Line Cinema's The Conjuring 2 spinoff, The Nun, which will explore the backstory of the phantasmal force that Ed and Lorraine Warren encountered in England. The nun was added to The Conjuring 2 towards the end of shooting, when director James Wan came up with the idea for the creepy character played by Aarons.

Aarons joins a cast that includes Taissa Farmiga as a nun and Demián Bichir, who, according to THR, will play "a priest named Father Burke, who is dispatched by Rome to investigate the mysterious death of a nun."

The Nun is directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow) from a screenplay co-written by James Wan and Gary Dauberman, »

Bonnie Aarons to Return as the Demon Sister in ‘The Nun’

26 April 2017 6:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line has hired Bonnie Aarons to reprise her role as the demonic sister for the horror-thriller “The Nun,” its spinoff of “The Conjuring 2.”

Demian Bichir and Taissa Farmiga are starring, with shooting starting in May in Romania. Corin Hardy is directing. Bechir will portray a priest and Farmiga will play the titular nun.

The studio began developing “The Nun” last June, shortly after “The Conjuring 2” opened. Producers are James Wan, who directed the two “Conjuring” movies and produced the sequel, and Peter Safran, who produced both movies.

‘Contrived, vulgar and stupid’: Going in Style and the rise of the geriatric buddy movie

20 April 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Oap gangster caper is the latest example of a Hollywood staple that’s well past its sell-by date – manipulative, nauseatingly heartwarming films that invariably seem to star Michael Caine

In the predictably inert, if not explicitly vile, geriatric buddy movie Going in Style, Michael Caine plays an octogenarian prole who is about to lose his home to a heartless bank. His cashflow problems necessitate the obligatory senior tete-a-tete with the obligatory insensitive bank manager, a stock character previously seen in Saint Vincent and Drag Me to Hell. Dissatisfied with the result of their little chinwag, Caine and his fellow retirees Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin decide to rob the bank.

Going in Style was co-produced by Steven Mnuchin, a hedge-fund manager recently named secretary of the Us treasury by the irrepressible Donald Trump. During the financial crisis of 2009, Mnuchin made a fortune for himself by investing in a mortgage »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Night Of The Demon (1957)

15 April 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

My favorite thing about taking these weekly trips to the Drive-In is my own selfish thirst for discovery. I need to patch up the holes of missing films on my personal movie screen; there is still so much to see, and sometimes the holes are so big that they obscure the view. Every once in a while though, a film comes along that not only mends the tears in the fabric but strengthens the whole. Such is the case with Night of the Demon (1957), Jacques Tourneur’s masterpiece of shadowy menace and dread, and a new personal favorite.

Released in its native U.K. in December and then stateside in July of ’58 under the new title Curse of the Demon (where 13 minutes were trimmed from an already lean 95 minute running time), this Columbia Pictures production was fraught with anguish before it even appeared to audiences, most famously producer Hal E.

Losing a part of my childhood: A Tribute to Bill Paxton

27 February 2017 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe pays tribute to Bill Paxton, who sadly passed away on Sunday…

The weekend in film was notable for two things. One was the Oscars. All the glitz, glamour and gaffes that came with that. A time of celebration for those fortunate enough to have been nominated in whichever category they were up for and utter delight for the winners (La La Land for about 8 seconds). However, alongside the handing out of the famous golden statue, there was another headline that caught the attention of film-goers around the world and that was the very sad and untimely passing of Bill Paxton.

If you’ve seen your share of films, particularly in the 80’s and 90’s, then chances are you’ve seen Bill Paxton. Predominantly a sturdy support player over the years, he proved reliable throughout a prolific career. To some though he was more than just a face you »

Sam Raimi to Helm Bermuda Triangle Film?

16 February 2017 1:25 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It's been several years since the release of Sam Raimi's last feature film, Oz the Great and Powerful, but the Evil Dead filmmaker could potentially be coming back to the big screen soon.

According to THR, Raimi is in discussions to direct a "mystery thriller" about the Bermuda Triangle for Skydance Productions. Covering a vast area of the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico, the Bermuda Triangle has long been a real life setting for bizarre disappearances of planes and ships. The mysteries of that stretch of sea are not only of interest to Skydance—Universal and Warner Bros. are also putting together projects based on the Bermuda Triangle.

Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (Narcos, The Great Wall, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Uninvited) penned the script for Skydance's Bermuda Triangle movie, with an earlier draft written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (2009's Friday the 13th, new »
