National Dog Day A Dog's Purpose

Every day it’s some sort of celebration, and today is National Dog Day, a day to celebrate man’s best friend. And what better way to honor them then to release a new trailer for A Dog’s Purpose, a film from Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules) that tells the story of a dog’s journey in life, and how his many reincarnated breeds has affected the lives of the many owners he (and she) has had.

Check out the weepy trailer here below.

Sam Mendes to direct James And The Giant Peach

This past summer, Disney’s made a worthy attempt to bring the world of Roald Dahl’s The BFG to life with the help of Steven Spielberg. Though the adaptation didn’t meet box office expectations, that won’t stop the studio from exploring more of the author’s works. But this time, instead of looking for a new one, they will do some revisiting. According to a new report, Disney will be working on a live-action adaptation of James And The Giant Peach, with Sam Mendes, who directed the last two James Bond films, currently in early talks to develop and direct. More on the story below.

Black Metal Friday: Anaal Nathrakh “Depravity Favours The Bold”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Anaal Nathrakh Band Photo

There is heavy metal and then there is Birmingham steel. England’s most famous foundry town has been an epicenter of extreme music ever since Black Sabbath (arguably) invented heavy metal there in the late 1960s. Birmingham has given us some of metal’s most seminal bands such as Judas Priest and Napalm Death. But perhaps the most extreme and currently influential band to hail from the midlands town is one that not many people outside of the genre of black metal have ever heard of. They are the two man force of nature known as Anaal Nathrakh.

Their name comes from a charm recited by the wizard Merlin in the 1981 film Excalibur and for the last eighteen years they have been casting a spell of their own on extreme metal fans across the globe. Their abrasive elixir consists of black metal with heaping helpings of death metal, grindcore, and industrial music.

Best Movies Of 2016 … So Far – Three D’s Picks
Three-D   |  

Movies of 2016 Richard Linklater Everybody Wants Some!!

Granted I still need to see De Palma and Hell or High Water, but the lack of American films on my list of best movies of 2016 so far is glaring. Consumed with the remakes, reboots, and sequels, American cinema this year has been boring for me. I’m praying the next few months provide films with some oomph. So far in 2016 the only English-speaking film that is of any genius is Krisha (and to think it’s made by a first-time director). International cinema this year produced masterpieces. They are films that contemplate time, existence, dreams, and love. The majority of the best movies so far can be found via numerous streaming services. That should be cause of a celebration. Below are my picks for the best films so far this year listed alphabetically, along with a few runner-ups.

Honest Trailers Presents Disney’s ‘The Jungle Book’ (2016)

Honest Trailers The Jungle Book 2016

A few months ago, in preparation for the arrival of the latest live-action version of Disney animated classic, The Jungle Book, the gang at Screen Junkies released an Honest Trailers for the 1967 original. Now, they’re back with an HT for Jon Favreau’s live-action (but mostly CGI) version that is absolutely, without question, way, way better!

Watch the video here below.

From the often great (Iro Mman, Elf) to sometimes awful (Cowboys and Aliens) director Jon Favreau comes the best talking animal movie this year… in a year where one comes out almost every week. So after you’ve watched Disney’s live-action Cinderella, but before their live-action Pete’s Dragon and Beauty & The Beast comes a film better than the original cartoon, because it features… a plot! Part Lion King, part nature documentary, part kid-version of The Revenant… (actual LOL) to that one.

The Difference Between Good and Bad “Jump Scares” In Movies (Video)
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Why Jump Scares Suck Video

Horror fans can usually tell whether they’ll dislike an upcoming movie just based on how many CGI ghosts, monsters, demons, and various other nasty things pull what’s known as a “jump scare” in the trailers. Jump scares often occur when those making the film aren’t so good at building tension and using sounds, settings, and the viewer’s own imagination to create terrifying moments and situations, and so they instead have things jump out and BOO! you accompanied by loud noises in hopes of jump starting your fear. Movies like this are usually like a really long version of that video with an unexpected screaming face you were tricked (or tricked someone else) into watching.

But this isn’t always the case. In fact, there are different ways to pull off the infamous jump scare, and sometimes it can actually work really well. YouTube channel Now You See It has released a new video, which can be viewed below, called “Why Jump Scares Suck.” The video takes a closer look at the jump scare with examples of both the right and wrong ways to use them.
