5 David Bowie Songs That Should Be Movies Jan10

5 David Bowie Songs That Should Be Movies

There’s really no need for an introduction or for us to tell you how powerful David Bowie’s music is, how it stretched across generations and electrified all of our odd bits and ultimately made us feel more alive in our strangeness. We’ve spent the better part of a year celebrating his eternal greatness and re-listening to his music, a gift which has aided so many of us in our quest to put words down on the page and twist our imagination in new ways until they become reality. To celebrate David Bowie’s creativity and genius, we’ve decided to pay tribute to him through the best way we know how: a melding of our love of music and movies. Here...

5 Great Almost-Films From 2016 Dec22

5 Great Almost-Films From 2016

Each year here at Audiences Everywhere, I like to take some time during our end-of-year celebrations to look at things that don’t quite fit into any of our other Best Of categories. As we’ve grown to include a greater variety of lists, I’ve had to stretch the definition of “Almost Film” past its breaking point. I could go on about how the definition of cinema itself is becoming more and more unstable, and how the combination of various mediums requires a more open-minded approach, but I’ll spare you. This is just a list of stuff I liked in 2016, and it’s stuff I hope you’ll like as well. 100 Ft. Robot Golf Unlike The Beginner’s Guide from...

And Yet More Star Wars Spin-Offs We Want to See Dec16

And Yet More Star Wars Spin-Offs We Want to See

It’s that time of year again. With Star Wars growing and growing with each week bringing more news about future installments, whether to the main series of the spin-off series, we’ve decided to give you five more spin-offs we would like to see get made. If what Disney is seeing is true and this franchise will last forever. then chances are you’ll get to see all these movies get made eventually. Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka is a character introduced in The Clone Wars who quickly became a fan favourite. She is the young padawan of Anakin Skywalker who picks up a lot of his bad habits ( the good habits though, not the killing children...

The Top 10 Star Wars Video Games Dec16

The Top 10 Star Wars Video Games

With the Star Wars Universe cinematically expanding beyond its episode installments, we thought it would be a good time to revisit some of the other onscreen narratives that took us deeper into this universe with new worlds, new characters, and new mythology. Typically, when we discuss the now defunct Star Wars Expanded Universe (EU) we talk about the novels and comics, and while those were impressive in their own right, it shouldn’t be forgotten that more than any other intellectual property, we’ve had a surplus of wonderful Star Wars games. So dust off the ol’ joystick and join us as we count down the top 10 Star Wars Video Games. 10....

5 More Movies That Need a Black and White Release Dec09

5 More Movies That Need a Black and White Release

George Miller’s masterpiece Mad Mad: Fury Road was recently re-released in cinemas around the world, converted in black and white, or rather black and chrome. The new version, much like the old version, is incredible, and the conversion works so well that after the first two minutes you forget you’re watching a black and white movie. There are actually scenes, like the war rig passing through the crow’s swampland, that are improved with the lack of colour. This got us thinking about what movies would benefit from the monochrome treatment and we’ve put together five here for you Looper Rian Johnson’s career has mostly been spent wading...

AE’s Goblet of Fire: Ranking the Harry Potter Films Nov16

AE’s Goblet of Fire: Ranking the Harry Potte...

“I love magic,” Harry Potter says as he stares in amazement at how the power of magic can turn this little tent into this accommodating big top. Truly, the cinematic depiction of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World is something to behold, not solely for its epic adventures and enthralling world-building but also for what lies within – the emotional sincerity in character introspection. The Harry Potter film series is definitely a unique series in that it introduces our main characters as they’re in their prepubescent childhood stage and ends their stories as they reach adulthood. This makes the film series stand out; as each film has a greater...

Understanding American Democracy in 7 Films Nov08

Understanding American Democracy in 7 Films

It is difficult for many Americans to understand how the United States democracy works. This presidential election, in particular, has caused many of us to ask ourselves, “How the hell did we end up here?” Thus, we can only imagine how nonsensical this circus must seem to our friends from other countries. To help contextualize this U.S. election and explain American democracy in general, we have put together a list of movies about American politics. After viewing these, you may still have questions about the how, but will better understand why America is so… American. Bob Roberts (1992) Bob Roberts is one of those satires that’s been...

6 Female Directors We Want To See On Jessica Jones Oct28

6 Female Directors We Want To See On Jessica Jones

Marvel’s Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg recently revealed via Variety that for the next installment of Netflix’s smash hit, will feature only female directors to helm all 13 episodes of Season 2. While we wait for a list of the directors working on Jessica Jones, I created a list of some of the women I’d like to see at the helm of the second season of the series. Jennifer Kent Australian native Jennifer Kent made her directorial debut with The Babadook, showcasing her deft ability to explore emotion through horror. Many aspects of Jessica Jones could be classified as horror; Kilgrave’s (David Tennant) rampant brutality and...

Halloween Movies for Kids and Cowards: Part III Oct27

Halloween Movies for Kids and Cowards: Part III

For the past two years, Audiences Everywhere has compiled a list of relatively tame and child-friendly horror movies to watch on Halloween. This year, we’ve decided to up the scariness factor on these movies just a little in order to help you overcome your fears and maybe learn a few life lessons along the way. Shaun of the Dead Depicted through the eyes of our frivolous main characters, Shaun of the Dead’s zombie apocalypse is perhaps so terrifying because of the way it catches our main characters by surprise, even though the signs were right in front of them. Here, Director Edgar Wright is able to prove that his ability to enhance his...

Scariest Scenes in Non-Horror Movies Oct27

Scariest Scenes in Non-Horror Movies

You don’t have to be a horror fanatic to be horrified by film. For #hAElloween, we asked our staff and readers about the scariest scene they ever saw within a non-horror film. You can read their answers below and add yours in the comments. The Matrix In 1999, The Matrix was released; I was 11 and not ready for it at all both as a movie and as a basic introduction to philosophy. The fear starts when Neo wakes violently in a vat of gelatinous goo (liquefied dead people, we later find out.) Covered in sockets and holes, he becomes aware of the “real world,” gazing at millions of others suspended in the same lie. The real horror is in...

5 Board Games That Should Be Horror Movies Oct26

5 Board Games That Should Be Horror Movies

With the success of Universal’s Ouija franchise, we got to thinking about other board games that would make for great horror movies directed by some of the genre’s biggest names. Parents and guardians, feel free to thank us later. Tobe Hooper’s Guess Who Six strangers wake up in a derelict house. Taped to the wall are 24 photographs of people close to each of these six people—four for each person. Above them is a metal grate where they can see a figure dressed all in black, and a chair with a figure draped in a sheet tied to it. The figure in black’s voice drifts down the grate, telling the house’s occupants the rules of the game. All they...

20 Great Horror Posters Oct26

20 Great Horror Posters

The horror genre has some of the most striking and visually interesting posters in cinema. Here are 20 to appreciate (in order of release) whether they’re framed on your wall or just in your heart. Don’t forget to check out the other posters we’ve highlighted here! Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) There’s something really special about the style of horror/sci-fi thriller posters of the 1950s. Creature from the Black Lagoon is a classic favourite, but take your pick: they’re all charming and pulpy as hell. Black Sunday (1960) Starting off strong with, “Stare into those eyes!” Barbara Steele has a pair of the most iconic eyes in the...

10 More Nightmare YouTube Videos Scarier Than Horror Films Oct25

10 More Nightmare YouTube Videos Scarier Than Horr...

Not everyone has what it takes to sit through 90-120 minutes of a horror film. Maybe you like the available time, or the long-term courage. In either event, if you’re looking to be scared in small doses, we have just the thing for you: the second installment of our series that captures YouTube videos scarier than horror films. You can catch the first installment here, and a new set of ten nightmare videos below. “Don’t Talk, Just Listen” Paul Michael Stephani was a serial killer who took the lives of five women in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. The video above collects the terrifying phone calls he made to emergency...

10 Directors for Deadpool 2 Oct24

10 Directors for Deadpool 2

In a rather shocking turn of events, or at least shocking in the world of comic book movies, Deadpool director Tim Miller has dropped out of the sequel, with Deadline citing creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. Naturally, there are a handful of rumors about what these creative differences revolved around, but we’re interested in looking at the franchise’s future. Of course, with Fox having a property as big as Deadpool (Marvel currently publishes more books revolving around him than any other character) and coming off such a massive box office success, they’re going to want their franchise in safe hands. They face the challenge of...

The Six Greatest Movie Seances Oct24

The Six Greatest Movie Seances

The seance or, for those unfamiliar with the term, an attempt to communicate with the spirit world is one of the most tried and true tropes in the history of horror movies. They can be anything from terrifying to silly, from loud and theatrical to quiet and reserved. The movie seance comes in so many different forms. Sometimes it crosses genre, sometimes it’s violent, sometimes it’s subtle. With the release of this week’s Ouija: Origin of Evil, what better time to take a look at which of the many iconic seances in film sparked our curiosity the most for what lies on the other side. A Haunting In Connecticut Despite being stuck in the middle...

Another 11 Short Horror Films You Can Watch Right Now Oct19

Another 11 Short Horror Films You Can Watch Right ...

While we all anticipate the big kill during our season of horror movies and returning horror television shows, sometimes it’s the little stab wounds that create the longest lasting effect, that penetrate the layers between fiction and reality so perfectly that fear is the only rational response. We’ve compiled for you another list of chilling, dangerous, and downright weird short horror films you can watch right now, that is, if you can if you can handle what they reveal. 1. Unedited Footage of a Bear (2014) – Directed by Alan Resnick & Ben O’Brien Like Adult Swim’s Too Many Cooks, Unedited Footage of a Bear takes the mundane and...

A Nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy Krueger’s Best Kills Oct11

A Nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy Krueger’s ...

The A Nightmare on Elm Street series has had its highs and lows. The original movie had five sequels, an out of canon revisitation – Wes Craven’s New Nightmare is a hard one to define – and a remake. All seven films range from the brilliant to the frustrating to the downright awful. But even the worst films were still successful, and still had interesting ideas and imaginative death scenes – except for the 2010 remake, which isn’t even worth talking about. The breakout star wasn’t Heather Langenkamp, or even Johnny Depp, but Freddy Krueger himself. Robert Englund’s performance was a perfect mix of the scary and the ridiculous,...

Westerns That Break the Western Rules Sep22

Westerns That Break ...

Western is the genre with the most rules. The strictest interpretation of those rules states that westerns need to be set in America and they need to have certain elements within them like Indians, cattle rustlers, horses, big hats, a drunk sheriff or doctor, and a stoic hero. They also tend...

10 Movies That Should Be Video Games Sep11

10 Movies That Should Be Video Games

In honor of Video Game Day, Jack Godwin and Diego Crespo have taken it upon ourselves to imagine what it would be like to imagine feature films as video games. The only qualifications are: 1) it cannot have previously been a video game. 2) The stories can be original or straight adaptations. Jack’s Choices eXistenZ David Cronenberg brought his specific brand of sci-fi body horror to the (then futuristic) notion of virtual reality, exploring how we interact with these new technologies. In the near-future, virtual reality game pods are attached via bio-ports into players’ spines through technological umbilical cords. Two game companies...

5 Female Superheroes Who Don’t Need Capes Aug26

5 Female Superheroes Who Don’t Need Capes

With the dominance of DC and Marvel exert over blockbuster season growing as formidable as ever while each powerhouse grows its respective expanded universe, much discussion surrounds the presence and characterization of the select few female superheroes in these franchises. With a Black Widow film in high demand and a Wonder Woman movie in the way, ground is just now being broken on female equality in the comic film universe. However, we have no shortage of female characters in film who have been nothing short of heroes, and they have proven themselves to be ‘super’ all on their own merit as women, with super powers such as...

The 11 Scariest Women in Film and Television Aug26

The 11 Scariest Women in Film and Television

Horror is arguably the most subjective and personal genre. While it has been lambasted in former eras for being misogynistic, there are currently many very talented women who contribute enormously to the genre, and they deserve to be celebrated. As a horror fan, it just made sense that to celebrate Women’s Equality Day I’d bring you 11 terrifying women in film. No matter her role, these artists prove they can bring out the terror you crave, so be prepared to get inspired…to death!   LYNN LOWRY At age 68, Lynn Lowry is still killing it. I had the pleasure of meeting her at this year’s Northwest Horror Show where she gave a...

5 Less Discussed Hitchcock Films That Need to Be Discussed Aug13

5 Less Discussed Hitchcock Films That Need to Be D...

If there’s a shorthand term in film journalism and conversation more useful than “Hitchcockian” I am yet to hear it. While terms like “Lynchian” are often misused, “Hitchcockian” is usually appropriate as a point of comparison because, well, whatever is being described, he probably did do it first. As far as I’m concerned there is no single director more influential to cinema, whose intellectual engagement with how an audience thinks and feels was more beneficial to the medium. Because of this, films like Psycho, Rear Window, The Birds and Vertigo have become essential viewing for the aspiring...

10 Bad Guys We Want In Suicide Squad Sequels Aug02

10 Bad Guys We Want In Suicide Squad Sequels

Well before critical assessments and box office predictions were made, interest from both fans and studio heads at Warner Bros. has been steadily building for Suicide Squad 2. And why not? The underside of the DC Universe is a vast and extraordinary place to explore with room for Suicide Squad to become a massive franchise with rotating cast members and spin-offs all within growing bounds of the DCEU. David Ayer has already exceeded expectations on pure character selection and casting level by delivering a Squad full of recognizable villains and B-list baddies ready to hit the mainstream. Of course, there’s always more villainy to be had,...

The Best Episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series Jul22

The Best Episodes of Star Trek: The Original Serie...

What makes a great episode of Star Trek: The Original Series? From a bold premise to capitalizing on crew interactions, the best episodes of the original series always wound up leading to the crew discussing events through a philosophical lens but always maintaining a sense of brevity and wit about itself. Gene Roddenberry’s vision of a more optimistic future is hailed as serious science fiction but it conjoined genuine science fiction philosophies with the utmost entertaining approach. Here are six episodes that capture the wonders of The Original Series. Season 1 Episode 3: Where No Man Has Gone Before Also known as, The One Where...

The Dos and Don’ts of Hall H at San Diego Comic Con Jul21

The Dos and Don’ts of Hall H at San Diego Co...

This is the first time in my life that I won’t be halting my weekend productivity in order to follow all the news and announcements coming from Hall H at San Diego Comic Con. To inaugurate this new stage, I’ve decided to focus my productivity towards writing about the mother of all fan conventions, San Diego Comic Con. When it comes to showcasing upcoming products, the bar that every presenter should aspire toward is the one set by Steve Jobs. It was no secret the man had a sixth sense for capturing the essence of his product and presenting it extraordinarily. I mean, there’s a movie, a book, and numerous other written works focused solely...

Five Great Extended Editions Jul08

Five Great Extended Editions

With the release of the extended cut of the totally non-divisive Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, what better opportunity to bring up other extended editions that enhanced or changed the reception of a film’s respective theatrical release? This article will focus on changes made within an individual movie and not the special bonus features. (But as a side note, the Alien Anthology set has the best special features I’ve ever seen). 1. Little Shop of Horrors We start with one film that only requires minor adjustment. The ending of Little Shop (spoilers) ends up taking away immediate impact and dulling the consequences of...

Six Great Movie Speeches As Delivered By Donald Trump Jun29

Six Great Movie Speeches As Delivered By Donald Tr...

Over the past year, people all over the world have become intimately familiar with the verbal stylings of presidential candidate and bloated corpse that washed up on a beach, Donald Trump. For many (if not most) of us, this was not by choice. Barely a day has gone by since he announced his candidacy that the media hasn’t subjected us to some new soundbite or stump speech. His unique brand of communication is inescapable, to the point that I’ve unwillingly internalized it. Trump’s voice lives inside me now, like a coronary that only lets white blood cells flow past it. So, in an effort to bring a modicum of happiness back...

The Best Movies of the First Half of 2016 Jun17

The Best Movies of the First Half of 2016

We’re edging toward the midway point of 2016, but we have already enjoyed a rather rich year of film releases, big and small. So before we dive headfirst into the high volume summer blockbuster season and swim into Oscar season, we thought we would take a moment to reflect upon this year’s best film releases so far. The list below reflects our favorite films, as voted on by committee and selected from films that saw at least their first limited release between January 1 and today. Have a look through the list, a look back at the half year, and don’t be afraid to correct us or share any films that might have missed our...

5 Times the Olsen Twins Nailed the ’90s Jun13

5 Times the Olsen Twins Nailed the ’90s

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may have officially traded in their on screen careers for behind the scenes fashion fame when they turned down the opportunity to appear in the Netflix series Fuller House. Although their primary focus is now on their label The Row and Elizabeth and James, their luxury wear, for millennials the twins’ legacy will always lie in their total domination of ’90s entertainment. As they celebrate their 30th birthday today, let’s take a look back at the best of the best. 5. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: Greatest Hits Although, shamefully, they were never recognized by the likes of the Grammys, the Olsen...

With Now You See Me 2, yet another 2016 sequel audiences never asked for, hitting theaters this weekend, we at AE thought it would be an appropriate time to bring you five movie magicians that are much more worth two hours of deceit and illusion. The Wizard of Oz (1939) He might be the most...

5 TV Shows That Would Work Better as Anthologies Jun07

5 TV Shows That Would Work Better as Anthologies

There are a lot of shows that get cancelled or limp to a disappointing finish, forcing us to say, ‘Well, it used to be good. Fatigue through perpetuity, changes in onscreen talent, and a lack of a through-plan mean that some shows that blossom like roses, end up as manure a few years later. With the current success of shows like Fargo and American Horror Story, the trend is drifting more towards self-contained seasons with a revolving cast of players or, in the case of Fargo, a whole different cast and story that retains some basic elements and ideas under the same title. This new age of anthology got us thinking here about TV shows...

Seven Directors for the Seventh James Bond Jun03

Seven Directors for the Seventh James Bond

Discounting the maligned original Casino Royale, the seventh incarnation of Bond is on the way. With the official departure of director Sam Mendes and all but confirmed Daniel Craig leaving the 007 name behind, it’s time we take a look at a series of new names to take the Bond franchise in daring new directions for the upcoming reboot. Shane Black There is only one Shane Black in Hollywood. Under Black’s script and direction, the new series would thrive on foundations from his already established work. His low-stakes keep the action contained but still extravagant in how the heroes dispatch the villains, and the aura of mystery is...

5 Actresses We’d Cast as Indiana Jones Jun01

5 Actresses We’d Cast as Indiana Jones

Today is the 35th Anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark and even with Harrison Ford saying that he’s signed up for another go with the hat and the whip , there’s always space in this modern movie landscape for a remake, reboot, remix, rehash of the Indiana Jones movies. And I don’t say that out of cynicism; I say that out of a love of the character and want, nay need, for there to be Indiana Jones movies forever. I believe that no male actor can replace Ford. Chris Pratt has the goofy charm but lacks world-weariness, while Bradley Cooper, to name just two recently touted options, has the looks and–not really much else that makes him...

Our Favorite Disney Channel Original Movies Jun01

Our Favorite Disney Channel Original Movies

The Disney Channel celebrated their 100th Disney Channel Original Movie by airing a marathon of every single original movie over this Memorial Day weekend. Given the fact that a number of our staff grew up during the ’90s and early 2000s, we leapt at the chance to revisit our childhood and once more step into the world of cheesy dialogue, heartfelt messages, and “where-are-they-now?” actors that only Disney TV movies can generate such excitement for. Smart House Jump! Jump! The House is Jumpin! 1999’s Smart House told the story of Ben Cooper who enters a contest for a Smart House in order to help out his sister and...

7 Actors to Replace Daniel Craig as James Bond May26

7 Actors to Replace Daniel Craig as James Bond

If the early reports are to be believed, Daniel Craig will be passing on the mantel of 007 to a new actor. Really, this shouldn’t come as a surprise given Craig’s statements during the press tour for Spectre. But who can blame the guy? Craig has had one of the best runs as the character, and at 48 it’s not surprising that he doesn’t want to spend his days jumping from trains or wading through frigid waters. But the great thing about Bond is that the character always returns, and we at AE have some inspired picks for a fitting replacement. We kept casting ideas open, with the caveat that the actor filling Bond’s shoes has to hail from the UK...

Don’t Go Breakin’ My Art: Ryan Gosling’s 5 Best Performances May25

Don’t Go Breakin’ My Art: Ryan Gosling...

Hollywood has an interesting history of heartthrobs. For an actor to find his way into a category defined by Cary Grant, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Idris Elba, Gregory Peck, Denzel Washington, etc. requires a level of attractiveness and a knack for picking attractive roles that appeal to big with audiences. However, all those aforementioned leading men were eventually able to grow out of those images to make fascinatingly diverse filmographies. Then there’s Ryan Gosling, who just can’t seem to cleanly shake away from his roles like Noah Calhoun in The Notebook or Jacob Palmer in Crazy, Stupid, Love. His portrayal of Noah launched...

Happy Goth Day: The 7 Best Goth Movies May22

Happy Goth Day: The 7 Best Goth Movies

Hide yourself from the spiteful sun, my friends; it’s World Goth Day! Whether you’re part of the subculture or just an admirer from afar, there’s plenty to admire within the goth scene, especially when it comes to film. While we most typically associate gothic films with the horror genre, the color black, and gray Victorian spires, the subculture lends itself to more than just an aesthetic, it’s also a feeling. Steeped in longing sensations, a good measure of suffering and the outsider perspective of the Byronic hero, goth movies are open-hearted expressions of humanity’s deepest, darkest, and most passionate thoughts and actions. And...

Even more Star Wars Spin Offs We Want to See May04

Even more Star Wars Spin Offs We Want to See

It’s Star Wars Day, so that means more spin offs! Oddly enough, though I’ve written fifteen mini movie pitches, Disney still hasn’t got in touch. Weird. Anyway, here are five more Star Wars spin offs we would like to see. Mace Windu and Yoda A road trip movie about Mace and Yoda travelling to a far off planet to recruit a Jedi master. They get ambushed on the way and have an adventure fighting bad guys and exchanging quips. You could make them both masters or even have Yoda be training Mace. Samuel L. Jackson got short shrift in the prequels and Yoda is just awesome. Pair them together in a sort of Lethal Weapon-style...

4 Great Civil War Movies May03

4 Great Civil War Movies

After this week, it’s likely that “Civil War” is going to be a term sewn into the cultural conversation to mean, at least temporarily, something less serious than what it meant before. But, presumably, the newest Captain America film will lean lightly on the same themes carried over from stories of war. Civil wars have always made for richly thematic film material. So, to prepare for the suphero version of the form, we’ve collected four prime examples of movies that explore history’s civil wars. A Field in England The English Civil War was fought between the Royalists and the Parliamentarians. In the end Oliver...

5 Directors for the Alien Franchise Apr26

5 Directors for the Alien Franchise

The Alien franchise means a whole lot to this particular writer. It’s a bizarre genre blend that comments on gender politics, deals with rape in a metaphorical and appropriate manner, and Lovecraftian themes of unstoppable terror. It’s all paired with stunning science fiction imagery with unlimited potential. In recent years, the franchise has… not been doing well. Two Alien vs. Predator movies fell into embarrassingly direct-to-video quality of content (and not the fun low-bar entertainment kind) and all but killed the franchise on the big screen. Video game adaptations haven’t fared much better, with the exception of the excellent Alien:...

AE’s 2016 Summer Blockbuster Preview Apr20

AE’s 2016 Summer Blockbuster Preview

When the sun finally reemerges and the weather warms up, many people jump at the opportunity to spend their free time doing things like grilling out, swimming, and golfing. But we cinephiles jump for joy over summer for a different, more air conditioned, popcorn-scented reason. It’s blockbuster season friends, and 2016 has more excuses than ever to pass on the vitamin D and ask for extra butter. Let’s take a look at the films our AE staff is looking forward to most this summer. Captain America: Civil War (Release Date: May 6th- U.S.) What makes Captain America: Civil War look incredible to me is how Marvel has been able to sell...

Movie Musicals That Should be Made Apr20

Movie Musicals That Should be Made

Last week saw tickets for Tim Minchin’s Groundhog Day musical go on sale in London. When it comes to movies being turned into stage musicals I have to admit that Groundhog Day is not the first movie that jumps into my head. If it had been a Magic Mike musical or a musical of underrated Steve Martin gem Leap of Faith then, as these are movies about performances, it would make perfect sense. This got us thinking here at Audiences Everywhere, so we’ve put together a list of ideas for what Tim Minchin should adapt next. Here are five movie musicals that should be made: Mad Max: Fury Road Another choice that may not seem obvious but consider how...

Five Best and Worst Moments of Game of Thrones Apr19

Five Best and Worst Moments of Game of Thrones

“Night gathers, and now my Watch begins,” are the words I shall be uttering when I tune in to the Season Six premiere of Game of Thrones this coming Sunday. The series that has always delivered a large-in-scope, medieval/fantasy drama is coming back. Fans are eager to see the show delve into uncharted waters now that it has passed the source material of Author George R. R. Martin. If the past five years have been any indication, fans are in for treats, surprises, and hopefully, more pay-off. No show has launched more fan reaction videos and responsive social media trends than Game of Thrones with the surprise deaths of its main...

Breakout Stars of Game of Thrones Apr18

Breakout Stars of Game of Thrones

In the fictional land of Westeros, ultimate power is to be found on the Iron Throne. The road to obtaining said power is full of deceit, bloodshed, and otherworldly struggle. Any character wishing to take the Iron Throne for themselves is most likely to end up dead – fan favorite or not. Fortunately for the actors playing these parts, rising to fame is much easier and safer in our world than in Westeros. Game of Thrones has been running on television for five years now, and it’s built up a pretty remarkable cast over its six seasons. From Peter Dinklage to Max von Sydow to Sean Bean to Lena Heady, there’s no shortage when it comes to the...

International Moment of Laughter Day – Enjoy Our Favorite Movie Laughs Apr14

International Moment of Laughter Day – Enjoy...

Today, April 14, is International Moment of Laughter Day. We like celebrating the good-spirited holidays more than anything else. So today, we’re sharing some of our favorite laughter-inducing movie moments. What movie moments made you laugh hardest? Share your favorites with us on Twitter, Facebook, or in the comments below. Let’s spread the joy! South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut – Uncle Fucker When I was 16, I sneaked into a screening of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (it was rated 18 in the UK). My friend and I skulked in, found seats, and waited for the movie version of our favourite TV show. We had a few chuckles...

Oscars 2016 Movie Merchandise For Sale Apr07

Oscars 2016 Movie Merchandise For Sale

Sometimes, after you watch a movie, you may find yourself thinking, “Man, I would love to have my own Necromonican or Holy Grail,” and you imagine all of the wonderful things you would do with such an item. The thing is, these dreams can be a reality. Recently the Batmobile from the 1989 Batman movie went on sale in Russia for a million dollars. A cool million is too much to spend on a car, but for a Batmobile it’s a steal. And the Batmobile isn’t the only movie item you can get on the net. eBay is full of props, not replicas, from movies that you can have in your own room for quite reasonable prices. Over the years I’ve seen all kinds of...

Cinema Speaks for the Dead: Movie Lines as Epitaphs Apr06

Cinema Speaks for the Dead: Movie Lines as Epitaph...

Like it or not, most of what exists of a person after death is merely what is said about that person. Someone could be immensely intelligent and complex in life, but if they were boring or something of an asshole, they will not be remembered as intelligent or complex after they pass, but rather, as a bore and an asshole. This an unfortunate but undeniably true fact of life. Regardless of what several mediums and psychics would like to think, you cannot speak from beyond the grave to defend yourself. The closest to this medium-psychic-communication from the dead the human race has, as archaic as it may sound, is the epitaph. That inscription...

5 Justice League Villains for Justice League Movies Mar24

5 Justice League Villains for Justice League Movie...

We all love a good superhero team up, but every team up requires a threat worthy of a united heroic front. These are five Justice League villains who could carry their own weight in a Justice League movie. They must also be fit to take on the entire team while being standalone characters. Of course, none of these characters is real but whatever; it’s my list, not yours, so suck it. Sinestro, Brainiac, Manchester Black and the Elite, Gorilla Grodd, Parasite are all great characters to play with, but I’d prefer to see them in their own movies battling their respective heroic nemesis so they remain honorable mentions (unless they were to say...
