Earlier this week, we shared a video highlighting the ten most iconic movie endings of all time. Everyone remembers the reveal at the end of The Usual Suspects and the look that Dustin Hoffman had on his face at the end of The Graduate, but it’s just as important to give a good first impression as it is to leave a lasting impression.
Often described as “Netflix for pirates,” Popcorn Time users are now being targeted for infringement. Originally reported by TorrentFreak, the makers of a film called The Cobbler recently initiated a lawsuit against 11 Popcorn Time users in Oregon for copying and distributing the aforementioned film without authorization. The Cobbler, in case you’re unfamiliar, stars Adam Sandler and was released in early 2015 to tepid reviews.
Though no individual names are mentioned in the suit, the makers of the film list out the 11 John and Jane Does by their IP address alongside their ISP (in this case Comcast Cable) and the date and time they accessed the movie.
In the annals of film, there are a few movies forever cemented in our collective memories for delivering what can only be classified as jaw-dropping endings. Recently, WatchMojo compiled a list of the 10 most iconic movie endings in history.
I love going to the movies. When I was younger, I used to go to the nearest theater at least twice a month, being sure to stay current on the latest blockbusters. As ticket prices have gone up and the barrier to entry for streaming a movie online has decreased dramatically, my habits have changed, and now I’m lucky if I make it to the theater five times in a year.
Other than one surprisingly spectacular failure, it’s been a pretty great summer for movies. Age of Ultron put an explosive bow on the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mad Max: Fury Road revitalized a franchise and Inside Out made us believe in Pixar magic again.
But now it’s time to look ahead to the fall, when some of the most anticipated movies of the decade are scheduled to hit theaters. More →
One of the more widely voiced complaints regarding online dating is that you never know who you’re truly talking to on the other end. The man who claims he’s fit and 6’1 tall may, in reality, be a portly 5’7 of a fellow. Or, even worse, perhaps the man you’re talking to co-opted the identity of Forrest Gump on his Tinder profile for a few laughs.
Sound crazy? Sure, but that’s exactly what one knucklehead decided to do recently.
Filmmaking is an imperfect science. There are innumerable factors to contend with, from the actors to the crew to the budget to the weather — it’s an endless maze that directors have to traverse from the moment production begins, which means that, inevitably, a few things are going to slip through the cracks.

On Friday evening, the highly anticipated trailer to Zoolander 2 leaked online. Slated for release in February 2016, the sequel will thankfully feature all of the usual suspects from the first film, including Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Billy Zane, and Will Ferrell. And naturally, the second coming of Zoolander will also include a who’s who of celebrity cameos, ranging from Kanye West to Justin Bieber.
Have you ever tried to make a list of your ten favorite movies? It’s a difficult and time-consuming task, but it’s also such a subjective list that you’ll probably never find anyone who agrees with you. Earlier this week, CineFix shared a video of the ten most beautiful movies of all time, and although it’s still a subjective list, I can appreciate each and every choice.
We can forgive sci-fi movies from the ’50s and ’60s for having terrible special effects. That said, once your get to the ’80s and ’90s, there’s no reason that your movie shouldn’t at least look passably realistic. Sadly, however, that has not universally been the case as even to this day we still see some true CGI stinkers that leave us howling in the aisles. More →
What’s the best movie of the year so far? Looking at box-office performance, you’d say that the recently released Jurassic World is definitely a must-see movie, even if not everyone will necessarily love the action-packed dinosaur flick. Using the same logic, the worst box-office performers aren’t necessarily the worst movies you could see this year, but it’s probably safe to say that they’re generally pretty bad. More →
In an era of streaming, downloading and on-demand video, having to wait more than a month for a movie to leave theaters feels archaic. Thankfully, at least one studio seems to agree as The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Paramount Pictures wants to get its movies into the hands of consumers faster than ever before. More →
As far as movie characters go, James Bond is the epitome of elegance and deadly ingenuity. And even though I personally think every incarnation of Bond is no match for Jason Bourne, there’s one aspect to Bond’s personality that even Bourne, or any other action hero for that matter, simply can’t match: Bond’s insatiable appetite for booze.
Throughout the 23 Bond films that have been released thus far, James Bond, in each one, is a man who knows how to enjoy the finer things in life, including a drink or three when the situation calls for it.
