How Pixar’s Inside Out Avoided Its Greatest Danger: Becoming An “After-School Special”

Inside Out is a complex film about the human psyche, but it has a really simple message: Sadness is an important part of life. You can’t have joy without sadness, and growing up means accepting that memories can be happy and sad. Director Pete Docter told io9 it was hard to avoid making this feel like an “after-school… »10/06/15 12:12pmYesterday 12:12pm

The 7 dark original stories that inspired 7 popular Disney movies

Disney movies almost always have happy endings but in order to get to the living happily ever after part, some pretty dark things usually have to happen.

The Flash Movie Will Be Directed by the Guy Who Wrote Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

This is strange news. It’s not bad, necessarily, that Warner Bros. has decided to let Pride & Prejudice & Zombies book author and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter novelist and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith to make his directorial debut with The Flash movie... but it does seem strange. »10/05/15 5:12pmMonday 5:12pm

Quentin Tarantino has a foot fetish. We know this, already. He also loves to show it off in his movies. We can now see this in this wonderful edit by Pablo Fernandez Eyre that stitched together scenes that involve feet in all his movies.

If You Didn't Love Avengers: Age of Ultron, The New DVD Won't Change Your Mind

I was kind of hoping to write a review of the Avengers: Age of Ultron DVD/Blu-Ray that went something like, “If you were one of the people who didn’t love the Avengers sequel, this new DVD will change your mind.” Alas, I can’t write that, because it’s probably not true. »10/01/15 6:49pmThursday 6:49pm

A tense action scene from the movie Everest with no SFX added is hilariously great

In a hilarious mix up, the movie studio behind Everest sent the BBC this clip of the movie that had no sound effects added. Which is really, really great for us because it is oh so goofy to see an impossibly tense scene of the movie with all the VFX added and everything looking right and action packed but sounding...… »10/01/15 4:45pmThursday 4:45pm

A movie's first and last scene, compared side-by-side (NSFW)

We’ve seen film editor Jacob T. Swinney juxtapose the first and last shot of a movie before. Now he’s back again, comparing how 70 more movies open and close.

Honest trailer of Avengers: Age of Ultron shows how even good Marvel movies aren't as fun anymore

Marvel is still pumping out some really good and really fun movies but there’s definitely a little fatigue when it comes to juggling all these superheroes to set up all these storylines to connect all these worlds. A movie like Avengers: Age of Ultron was absolutely, totally good! But it tries to do too much without… »9/29/15 6:12pm9/29/15 6:12pm

I Watched Netflix In VR and Now Reality Seems Hollow and Pointless

“IT’S FOR GAMES” has been the oft-quoted cry of VR headset makers and gamers when talking about virtual reality, but the opportunity for movies is unquestionably huge. Today, Oculus VR released a Netflix app for the Gear VR (and eventually Oculus’ own headset.) And it makes watching Netflix in real life seem super… »9/24/15 5:15pm9/24/15 5:15pm

10 awesome bloopers that actually made it into the final cut of the movie

There is so much preparation that goes into a movie and so many takes captured of any given scene and so much work that goes into the camera work and so much practice for the performances but yet, things don’t always go as planned. Mistakes happen, lines are forgotten, and bloopers are created. But sometimes those… »9/21/15 11:24pm9/21/15 11:24pm

The first trailer for The Force Awakens announced to the world there was a brand new Star Wars villain. We then learned his name: Kylo Ren, owner of the ominous, hilted red lightsaber. A second trailer followed, and immediately we were greeted by the face of Darth Vader. The obvious question was, “Why?” »9/18/15 5:44pm9/18/15 5:44pm
