Horror films occupy a long and enthralling place in cinematic history, and Diego Carrera has put together an excellent video showcasing the films that have scared us for over 120 years.
Captain America: The First Avenger might never compare to the taut thriller that Winter Solider ended up being, or the measured spectacle critics are calling Civil War, but it has one special moment. It’s a moment that changes Captain America from mere hunk of propaganda to a tragic hero. And it’s borrowed wholesale…

If this year’s Sundance Film Festival is any indication, virtual reality is about to hit the mainstream. Under a program called New Frontier, the festival is promoting eleven independently produced VR films on a smartphone app. The finalists have been chosen from hundreds of entries, and among them are some short…
There’s little better than a bit of mystery at Christmas, and Google’s fun new interactive thriller has it in spades. Made by the creators of Wallace and Gromit, you can explore the interactive scene on your Android device (and a less exciting version on iOS or the web).
Twitter is buzzing tonight with a new trending topic: #ExplainAFilmBadly. It’s pretty funny, and at some points, painfully accurate.
The Star Wars Prequel trilogy flat out sucks: it’s the one thing that’s holding most fans back from super high expectations for the next Star Wars trilogy. That said, there are ways to redeem them, and one editor has made some edits that make them watchable.
Lionsgate Films announced that they’re teaming up with Gearbox Software to bring their game Borderlands to a theater near you. The company is aiming to position the film as a major tentpole event, although they didn’t indicate when the film would come out.
Bronies, Jedi Junkies, Turtle Power, Mudbloods, The People vs. George Lucas... as geekiness gets cool, we’ve been deluged in documentaries exploring fan subcultures, sub-subcultures, and sub-sub-subcultures. Docs about video gaming alone could fill a film festival, including Atari: Game Over, Indie Game: The Movie,…
Summer’s zooming by. Wish you could teleport from your cubicle to a sandbar in turquoise waters? Well, there’s no Hyperloop yet—but thankfully, drone-shot 4K movies of Japanese paradise can make you feel like you’re there.
I’m usually wary when Hollywood tries to reboot old spy shows (thanks for ruining my dreams, Get Smart), but The Man From U.N.C.L.E. looks SO. GOOD. And if you like cars, this might be your favorite movie of the summer:
There’s always been a solid connection between Westerns and the Star Wars films, but this latest fan film is a nice combination of the two. Boba Fett tracking people down in the Outer Rim badlands? Yes please.

There are certain films that are so obviously meant to be projected on a big screen it feels wrong to watch them for the first time at home—grandiose, SFX-heavy space sagas like Gravity only feel right splayed across an IMAX canvass. Unfriended, in its scale, has the reverse affect. It’s best watched on a laptop,…
I you were anywhere near a TV set in the eighties, you will shed a tear of nostalgia watching this supercut—edited by Robert Jones—that compiles some of the most famous teen movies of that decade.
Quentin Tarantino loves to flex his directorial muscles in his movies, so much so that he's developed so many different trademark shots. Roman Holiday put together a bunch of close up shots from Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown to showcase all of those scenes. It's kind of fun to track the story through just these shots.
