10 Best Action Scenes Of 2015

25 January 2016 7:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal/Warner Bros./Fox/MGM

Make no mistake about it, 2015 was a great year for blockbuster cinema. While Jupiter Ascending, Fifty Shades of Grey and Terminator Genisys may have been terrible, big-budget studio filmmaking still enjoyed a banner year thanks to the likes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Furious 7, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Mad Max: Fury Road to name but five.

Looking back, it would even be fair to say that last year was one of the best ever when it came to the sheer volume of spectacular action scenes that Hollywood’s blockbuster behemoths delivered, even when the rest of the movie itself wasn’t quite up to scratch. Movies like Spectre, Jurassic World and San Andreas are hardly going to be remembered as all-time classics in the future, but each served up plenty of eye-popping set-pieces. However, the less said about »

Exclusive: Broadchurch actress stars in Dutch horror debut from Nick Jongerius.

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution (Kfd) has boarded sales rights to genre-horror The Windmill Massacre ahead of Berlin’s Efm (Feb 11-19).

20 Terrible 2015 Movies That Should Never Have Happened

18 January 2016 12:49 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

A terrible movie is a terrible movie, but at least we as viewers can appreciate why some of them exist or the promise they had prior to release: the final Paranormal Activity had something to tie up (though it categorically failed to), there was a sliver of hope Hitman: Agent 47 might not be terrible (but it was), and at least Jupiter Ascending had that awesome Chicago-set chase sequence.

This list is instead about those films where there’s not much of a discernible purpose or reason for the films to exist: either the audience wasn’t there, it was clear they were doomed to be terrible, or in the case of a few sequels and reboots, there was simply no need to go there.

Though not all of these movies are strictly the 20 worst of the year, they’re the 20 that, above all others, did little to encourage their own existence, »

Blockbusters: are big films all year round a good thing?

17 January 2016 9:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We’re seeing big cinema releases almost every weekend now. But is this a good thing?

Do you remember during 2014, where lots of fans stubbornly declared Captain America: The Winter Soldier the best film of that summer despite its opening in March/April? It was joined by The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in trying to steal a march on the competition, but clearly when you think big blockbusters, they’re associated with a certain time of year. And given how for the studios, summer season occupies a full third of the year from May to August, and Christmas the sweet period from November all the way through to New Year, that should be plenty of room for the Avengers, Star Wars and Jurassic Parks of the world, right?

Except that there are plenty more 'tentpoles' (big releases to prop up the studio’s bottom line) being made and »

Wrap-Ranker Poll: 2016 Razzie Nominees That Weren’t Actually That Bad

14 January 2016 9:09 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The nominees for the 2016 Razzie Awards have been released, and there are some questionable entries among the obvious choices. Did Dakota Johnson deserve to be singled out for “Fifty Shades of Grey” after garnering some positive reviews for her performance, or is she paying the price for a film that became something of a cultural joke even as it rocketed to box office success? Was Eddie Redmayne‘s whispery alien in “Jupiter Ascending” the worst performance of the year, or did he suffer backlash from a questionable job so soon after his amazing role in “Theory of Everything”?

The 36th Razzie Awards nominations have been announced

13 January 2016 9:40 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Yesterday, the 36th annual Razzie Awards nominations were announced by the The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. It is tradition that the Razzies, which celebrate the worst movies of the year, are nominated just before the Oscar nominations, which celebrate the best films of the year. The Oscar nominations will be announced in Los Angeles later this afternoon, but the Razzie nominations have already been released.

We’re afraid its bad news for Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kayley Cuoco-Sweeting.

Here is the official press release.

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year’s 36th Annual Razzie® Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year’s “berry” worst. And 2015’s acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kayley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar® winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, »

The Danish Girl movie review: sometimes it’s hard to be a woman

13 January 2016 11:30 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Safe, conventional, and not particularly sympathetic to women, cis or trans. Mistakes the external signifiers of femininity with actually being a woman. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Lili Elbe was a transgender pioneer. She lived openly as a woman, even though she was born in a man’s body, in 1920s Europe at a time when such a thing was seen as perverted or actually clinically insane; she wrote the memoir Man Into Woman about her transition; and she was one of the first people to receive sex-reassignment surgery, which was then highly experimental; complications from it killed her in 1931. She’s an important person to be telling stories about, especially today, as we are starting to be more aware of the trials transgender people face, both publicly and personally, »

2016 Razzie Awards Nominations Are Here

13 January 2016 10:07 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year's 36th Annual Razzie Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year's "berry" worst. And 2015's acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. "Winners" will be announced in intentionally tacky ceremony scheduled for 8pm/Pst on Saturday February 27 -- Oscar eve.

The choices for Worst Picture include Fifty Shades of Grey (2015's "Most Successful Bad Movie"), Fantastic Four (a nearly instant remake that flopped with both critics and movie-goers), Jupiter Ascending (the latest sci-fi fiasco from Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (a box office hit despite its 95% negative rating at Rotten Tomatoes) and Adam Sandler's latest excuse for a movie, »

Kevin James, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' come up big in this year's Razzies

13 January 2016 7:51 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's the day before the Oscar nominations are announced, and that means Razzies! Yes, the nominees for the awards that celebrate the best of the worst have been announced. Not too many surprises this year: "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Jupiter Ascending," and "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" led the pack with six nominations each. Really the only surprise was that "Mortdecai" wasn't up there with them (it only got three noms). Oh, and that Julianne Moore was nominated. I didn't see "Seventh Son" but I can't imagine that she was bad enough in it to be considered one of the worst performances this year. She's Julianne Moore! And dubious congratulations are in order for Kevin James, who was nominated in several acting categories for his work last year. Winners will be announced on February 27 -- as always, the night before the Oscars are handed out. Worst Picture "Fantastic Four"  "Fifty Shades of Grey »

Nominations for the 36th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards were announced on Wednesday morning, and the critically derided likes of Jupiter Ascending, Fifty Shades of Grey, Pixels, Fantastic Four, and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 will vie for the top dishonor at the February ceremony that's meant to celebrate the worst of the year in movies. Each of the Worst Picture nominees were recognized in six different categories of failure, save for Fantastic Four, which managed a comparatively terrific five.
