Here’s CineFix’s picks for the 10 best heroes of all time. Do you agree with it?
Honest trailers is back and this time they’re taking the latest Fast and Furious movie, Furious 7! I’m going to be honest with you, I never actually watched this one because it looked so damn stupid, but after this Honest trailers I might have to check it out because of how damn stupid it looks!
Previous Honest Trailers:
Here’s the first teaser trailer for Disney’s live action remake of The Jungle Book. Visually the movie looks absolutely stunning and that’s pretty much all we have to go on right now. The cast is definitely an all-star lineup with Idris Elba, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong, and Christopher Walken.
From the YouTube description:
Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat.
Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.
Here’s a look at a feature length action movie shot entirely in the P.O.V. perspective and it looks intense. Here’s the actual trailer:
Here’s the description of the movie:
“HARDCORE is a modern, action Sci-Fi story about HENRY, a newly resurrected cyborg who must save his wife/creator ESTELLE (Haley Bennet) from the clutches of a psychotic tyrant with telekinetic powers, AKAN (Danila Kozlovsky), and his army of mercenaries. Fighting alongside Henry is JIMMY (Sharlto Copley), who is Henry’s only hope to make it through the day. Hardcore takes place over the course of one day, in Moscow, Russia.” (source)
Director Ilya Naishuller got the chance to make this after his short film BAD MOTHERFUCKER got him noticed by Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov:
Here’s the second official trailer for the Rocky spinoff Creed and I have to admit that I didn’t think a Rocky spinoff was necessary but it looks pretty damn good.
There’s really not much description needed here. WatchMojo counted down the top 10 actresses who have taken it all off for movies. Blah blah blah, just watch it.
I happen to like every movie on this list, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t really stupid and large plot holes in them. Here are the movies on Screen Rant‘s list:
1. The Avengers
2. The Wolverine
3. The Matrix
4. Minority Report
6. Star Wars: A New Hope
7. Batman Begins
8. Terminator 2
9. Guardians of the Galaxy
10. Back to the Future Part 2
Fun little compilation of characters on phones in movies who seem to be talking to each other.
This is a great video about the use of color in storytelling in movies.
So not every one of theses endings are better than the ones they chose to go with. I like the theatrical endings of Terminator 2, 28 Days Later way more than the original endings that were cut.
Take a stroll down video game (and movie) gun memory lane in this epic video. After check out this Making Of video to see how they pulled it off (lots of After Effects work).
Tony Zhou is back with another episode of his series Every Frame A Painting. I highly recommend going to his YouTube channel and watching each and every one of them. In this episode he talks about his home town of Vancouver and why and how it’s used to play every city except itself in movies and TV.
Previously from Every Frame A Painting:
It’s Sunday and you have nothing better to do than to be hungover and watch football. Also you can checkout this mashup of dance scenes from 100 different movies synced up to “Uptown Funk”. I had almost forgotten this song existed, Ugh.
The other day I posted an interesting video pointing out side by side the callbacks the Star Wars prequels made to the original trilogy. Now the same Vimeo user made a cool video of the callbacks the 4th Indiana Jones movie (still a terrible movie) made to the original 3. Check it out because we all know…
Subliminal messages are everywhere in movies, and in this video Screen Rant points out their top 6. The one I found most fascinating was the low frequency noise in the movie Irreversible (side not, this is not a great first-date movie) which causes uneasiness when hearing it.
Here’s the trailer for Krampus, a Christmas horror movie with a solid cast. You got Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, & Allison Tolman. From the trailer I’m not sure if this is supposed to be a strait up horror movie with just a sprinkling of comedy, or if it’s a dark comedy/horror movie. Either way it looks pretty good and I’ll be seeing it.
Most of these are ridiculous but I can’t help but really want to see a version of The Shining staring Robin Williams.
The Paul Blart movies are atrocious, which is a shame because Kevin James is actually hilarious. I know he’s pretty much only made bad movies but King Of Queens was a great show and his stand-up special “Don’t sweat the small stuff” is laugh out loud funny. That being said I now really want to see him in a creepy thriller like this fake trailer.
Jake Gyllenhaal’s wife dies and he gets screwed out of peanut M&Ms at a vending machine…that’s pretty much all I got from this trailer. Let’s let the YouTube description fill in the gaps:
“A successful investment banker, Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father-in-law (Chris Cooper) to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel. What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis’ letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen (Naomi Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two strangers form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.”
I’m sorry but I’m going to have to mark this one down as boring even though it’s probably going to be really good.
Turns out the laser blasters in Star Wars aren’t lasers at all because the “laser” moves so damn slow. Thanks Mythbusters!
Everybody loves the new Star Wars droid BB-8, and the new toy is awesome. F**k packing is right dude, enjoy your toy.
