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.
Top Gun is without question one of the more iconic movies to have been released in the 1980s. And now, nearly 30 years later, it looks as if there’s going to be a sequel.
These days, it’s not uncommon to see movie sequels and reboots with entirely new casts. Thankfully, Top Gun 2 will not go down this route as Tom Cruise is all but confirmed to reprise the role of Maverick.
What happens when you put together a movie mashup crossing Avengers: Age of Ultron with characters from The Wizard of Oz? A film called Avengers of Oz: Age of Tinman. And trust us, it’s nothing short of amazing and creatively brilliant.
Once known for solely sending customers DVDs in the mail, Netflix over the past few years has quickly and impressively transitioned into a formidable media powerhouse. With a growing stable of exclusive content, Netflix isn’t afraid to take out its wallet and spend bucks on content it thinks will help grow its subscriber base even further.
Most recently, Netflix forked over an incredible amount of money to secure the exclusive rights to Brad Pitt’s upcoming movie War Machine, a film that will have Pitt take on the role of General Stanley A. McChrystal in what will reportedly be more of a comedy than a dramatic feature. For those unfamiliar, McChrystal resigned from the U.S. Army in 2010 after making unflattering remarks about Vice President Joe Biden in a Rolling Stone article.
One of the things that makes Quentin Tarantino a great director is just how much he loves watching and absorbing other movies whether they’re old westerns, gangster movies or campy horror flicks. Tarantino also puts subtle allusions to older films in many of his movies and YouTube user Jacob T. Swinney has put together a compilation showing us just how often Tarantino tips his cap to films released long ago. More →
After being featured in the latest entry of one of the most successful action franchises in history earlier this year, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson decided to shift gears and star in a movie packed with so much destruction that even Furious 7 couldn’t keep up. San Andreas is that movie, and although critics haven’t been kind, fans of CG eye candy should still be entertained.
