The Apartment

Savant’s vote for the best romantic comedy ever goes to a sordid fable about problems in the big city Rat Race: keeping both a job and one’s self-respect. Picking up where 1930s pre-Code movies left off, Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond’s ‘how to succeed’ thesis divides people into two groups, Takers and those that Get Took. And yet the message it delivers is life & love- affirming.

Brigadoon

Balletic, stylized and rather aloof, MGM’s biggest musical for 1954 still has what musical lovers crave — good dancing, beautiful melodies and unabashed romantic sentiments. Savant has a bad tendency to fixate on the inconsistencies of its fantasy concept — in which God places an ideal Scottish village outside the limits of Time itself.

The pop culture phenomenon of Smash Mouth's All Star

Mark Harrison Sep 22, 2017

It first appeared on screen in Mystery Men. But then All Star began to spread...

“Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me...”

Once upon a time, there was a movie called Shrek. Back in 2001, the world was introduced to the titular ogre, a not-so-jolly green giant, as he literally wiped his arse with the traditional fairytale and burst through his outhouse door. Cue All Star by Smash Mouth, and a generational obsession that ripened with the emergence of mashup culture.

The track was composed two years earlier for Smash Mouth's second album, Astro Lounge, after guitarist Greg Camp was told by their record label Interscope that the new record lacked “a hit single”. Their punk/ska influenced debut, Fush Yu Mang, had yielded Walkin' On The Sun,

It’s a bit surprising to realize now that the first Zoolander actually wasn’t a huge hit when it came out back in 2001. It was the 55th highest domestic grosser of the year, behind such gems as Rat Race and The Animal. Like most good comedies, however, it eventually found an audience, and over the past decade and a […]

Gambling Movies 101

It is ironic that people want to escape risk all the time but at the same time a large part of the populace is fascinated with gambling. The foremost example of this fascination is the spate of gambling movies which hit the screen every year. Some become part of pop culture, some win critical acclaim, and some set the box office on fire. But one thing is for sure: gambling aficionados watch them with great eagerness, sometimes in the hopes of catching a trick or two. Rain Man is one movie which comes to mind where the autistic lead character counts cards at a casino, but that one is not a gambling movie.

Now, there are different kinds of gambling. Some of them involve gambling as the main plot point while others have gambling going on in the background while the story takes its course. Casino is one example of

13 British comedy stars lured to Hollywood in the 1990s

Hollywood went hunting for lots of British comedy talent in the 1990s - and lured the likes of Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson...

For some reason, Hollywood fell in love with British actors again in the 1990s. Sparked by Alan Rickman's turn as Hans Gruber in Die Hard at the back end of the 1980s, many movie villains were either Brits, or in the case of Cliffhanger, John Lithgow taking on the mannerisms of a British antagonist.

Yet in particular, Hollywood went recruiting British comedy talent, with faces then mainly - but not exclusively - known for their small screen work getting roles of various sizes in Hollywood productions. Here are some who racked up the air miles - starting with the man who arguably became one of the most successful...

Gore Verbinski to Direct Driverless Car Comedy for Sony

Gore Verbinski to Direct Driverless Car Comedy for Sony
Sony Pictures has acquired a pitch from director Gore Verbinski and writer Steve Conrad for a project revolving around driverless cars. The comedy reunites the writer and director, who previously collaborated on The Weather Man and were set to make the North Korean-set Pyongyang, before 20th Century Fox pulled out in December. This new movie is currently untitled, but it is being called the Driverless Car Race for now.

The story is described as a large-scale action-adventure that centers on a transcontinental race with driverless cars. The race begins as a beta test between competing software companies that would spearhead a driverless car initiative, but it quickly takes an unexpected turn as these companies turn this test into a major race from Paris to Beijing. The plot centers on normal people who are passengers in these autonomous cars, who try to take control of the experiment as these vehicles go off-road and off the grid.

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now
Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

  • Cinelinx
We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best.

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best.

NYC, La Mayors’ NHL Bet: Who Will Sing On ‘Kimmel’?

The traditional joke bets between city officials whose sports teams are meeting in a championship hit a high note this week when Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti challenged New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to a song and a hot dog on Jimmy Kimmel Live! over the outcome of the NHL’s Stanley Cup Final. If the Los Angeles Kings win, de Blasio will have to go on the show, which tapes in Garcetti’s old Hollywood council district, and sing “I Love L.A.,” the slightly mocking Randy Newman chestnut more typically associated with the Kings’ Staples Center neighbors the NBA Lakers. If the New York Rangers win, Garcetti will have to sing “New York, New York,” the Kander & Ebb-penned classic that Frank Sinatra basically owns.
