Consider With Reservations: The Stars of Quantity Over Quality Cinema

20 April 2017 12:51 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The stars of yesterday now are making three films a year you never knew existed until they show up on Netflix.^ Real Movie ^

In my prior life as a script reader, I certainly read a lot of bad scripts, but at times, an even more common occurrence was a script that seemed to do a great many things right, but somehow fell just short of being something you wanted to champion as a movie. As draining as the terrible scripts were, there’s something pure about clear-cut bad. It takes little effort to explain why they’re unfit.

The real challenges were the scripts that had kind of a decent premise, kind of an okay twist or two, and a lead character who wasn’t bad so much as he or she was just… there. The raw materials are there for what Could be a script. They just happen to be assembled in the least compelling way »

The 50 Greatest Car Chases in Film: Part 1

12 April 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Fast and Furious movies aren't the only ones with great car chases. Join us as we take a look at the 50 best car chase scenes in film. This week, we’re looking at #50 through 26.

Like peanut butter and jelly, car chases and movies are two things that just go together perfectly. A chase is inherently interesting to watch - someone is trying their best to get away by any means possible, while the other party is trying to stop them from doing so. The danger involved, the threat of violence, and even the thrill of the hunt are all part of why we often can’t look away. A car chase is the next level of chase. They are fast - an embodiment of man and machine together. They are also dangerous - the stakes are incredibly high, and not just for the people involved in the chase.

I.T. Review

9 March 2017 6:47 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Linda Marric

A Good Day to Die Hard director John Moore is back with a predictably dull tech thriller which manages to underwhelm rather than thrill. This psychological drama which stars Pierce Brosnan and Anna Friel – yet despite the cast’s best efforts, I.T falls short of providing any kind of hook and ultimately fails to keep the audience on its side for long enough for anyone to care about what is happening on screen as the narrative unfolds.

Sounding more Irish and looking more menacing than usual, Brosnan is Mike Regan, a self-made aviation millionaire planning to expand his empire by launching an Uber-style app for private jets. Regan seems to have it all, a dutiful wife (Anna Friel), a beautiful teenage daughter (Stefanie Scott) and a modern state-of-the-art smart home with all mod cons. However, things start to go terribly wrong when the firm’s I. »

Second Opinion – I.T. (2016)

9 March 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I.T., 2016.

Directed by John Moore.

Starring Pierce Brosnan, James Frecheville, Anna Friel, Stefanie Scott, and Michael Nyqvist.

Synopsis:

A wealthy tycoon finds his life has been taken over by an It consultant. He, his family and his home are under attack from all the technology that they take for granted.

It’s surprising that “from one of the writers of Terminator 2: Judgement Day” wasn’t plastered all over the marketing for Pierce Brosnan’s latest low-rent thriller romp, because William Wisher Jr.’s involvement is just about the only remotely promising thing this film has going for it. Then you remember T2 was 25 years ago and Wisher has since written Sylvester Stallone’s Judge Dredd and two Exorcist prequels nobody asked for. I.T., arriving amid little enthusiasm or reason to exist, is like-minded company.

Aviation mogul Mike Regan (Brosnan) is on the eve of taking his company public and »

Star Wars, and the growing clamour for the original cuts

28 February 2017 1:06 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 1, 2017

As rumours that Disney is set to re-release the original cuts of the first Star Wars trilogy prove unfounded, we look at what's going on...

It’s a strange time in the world of physical discs. Whilst companies such as Arrow and Criterion continue to invest time, money and care into beautiful, crafted and collectable releases, there’s a growing feeling that the era of the physical disc is coming to an end. DVD and Blu-ray sales are falling, some titles by-pass disc altogether and go straight to streaming services. Furthermore, extra features are becoming less the norm and more a bit of a luxury. Then there’s the small matter of Ultra HD Blu-ray, a new disc format that’s making a little headway, but struggling to really breakthrough. Titles such as Keeping Up With The Joneses for £30 a throw aren’t loosening people’s purse strings. »

How A Good Day To Die Hard left the franchise in limbo

1 February 2017 4:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 2, 2017

How Die Hard 5 left the series, and what's the story with Die Hard 6, or Die Hard: Year One?

The promotional campaign, at least, was promising. The early trailers for A Good Day To Die Hard brought back key pieces of music, and seemed to hit that Bruce Willis was back to playing the character of John McClane, as opposed to being Bruce Willis in another generic action movie. Scheduled for a Valentine’s Day 2013 release date, it seemed 20th Century Fox had confidence in a franchise that had enjoyed its best ever box office performance with 2007’s Die Hard 4.0/Live Free Or Die Hard (depending on where you live in the world).

The first warning sign that all was not well came with the invitation to the UK press screening for the film. Appreciating »

The erotic thrillers that followed Basic Instinct’s success

30 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 3, 2017

When Basic Instinct hit big, Hollywood went hunting for more erotic thrillers. Er, it found some. Includes Kevin Spacey with odd hair.

When a movie hits big out of the blue, it’s unwritten Hollywood law that the imitators aren’t too far behind. That’s why, after American Pie brought Porky’s-esque sex-tinged (late) teen comedies back to prominence in 1999, the box office was flooded with similar fare for years after. The Blair Witch Project, meanwhile, hit out of nowhere, and found footage horror is only now dying away. The late Wes Craven, meanwhile, wryly noted just how quickly Hollywood had cashed in on the success of 1996’s Scream, when spoof Scary Movie popped out the year after.

Going back to 1992, though, and it was the turn of the erotic thriller to enjoy its resurgence. »
