Eyes On With the 270-Degree Future of Cinema

A 270-degree, wraparound triple-screen theater system has just begun rolling out to very select theaters nationwide—only five, in fact—with hopes of delivering an immersive movie-going experience that succeeds where 3D has so miserably failed. I got a sneak peek at the new technology recently and it's, um, really … » 9/17/14 3:29pm Today 3:29pm

All of Harry Potter summed up in one giant comic strip

If you somehow missed the Harry Potter boat and wanted to read all the books now, you'd have to flip through 4109 pages spread across 7 books. Or if you just want to catch up with the Harry Potter movies instead, you'd have to sit and stare for 19 hours and 38 minutes for all 8 movies. Or you could just read this… » 9/16/14 10:14pm Yesterday 10:14pm

Scientists Used a Hitchcock Thriller to Measure Patients' Consciousness

Alfred Hitchcock, our master of suspense, was incredibly good at manipulating his audience—a fact that has now come in handy for neuroscientists.

10 movie myths that can never actually happen in real life

We see some things happen so often in movies that they start to seep into our reality. We totally think they're real. Like thinking the asteroid belt is some dangerous road or that firing a gun to break a lock works or that silencers truly silence a weapon. But nope! Those are all myths that can't ever happen in real… » 9/12/14 9:42pm Friday 9:42pm

A Blu-ray Disc Player on Your Car's GPS Is Probably Not a Good Idea

There's just one thing that could make your drive to work less agonizing when the GPS is telling you there's no way around the endless traffic: access to your Criterion Collection Blu-ray discs. Or at least that's the scenario Panasonic is envisioning now that it's including Blu-ray players on its satellite navigation… » 9/10/14 9:15am 9/10/14 9:15am

This is why Robin Williams was such a fantastic actor

Everyone has their own reasons for loving Robin Williams, he taught some people how to laugh, his movies defined many a childhood, he was a great guy and so on and so on. Plus, he was a fantastic actor. Tony from Every Frame a Painting explains just how great by focusing on one tiny thing: his movement. » 9/09/14 10:35pm 9/09/14 10:35pm

Brutally honest trailer shows how Godzilla was such a terrible movie

I really thought Godzilla was going to be cool. I mean the the teaser had that sick HALO jump scene and the cast had a post-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston with an always watchable Ken Watanabe and oh yeah, GODZILLA! There was no way they were going to screw it up like they did in 1998. And yet, they did. » 9/09/14 8:33pm 9/09/14 8:33pm

Super slick CGI movie teaser makes me want to see the whole thing

CGI and visual effects are often over used in mainstream movies these days but there are still some really cool sequences that can only pop and make you gasp with the help of VFX.

Beautiful video shows how Pixar uses a rainbow of colors in their movies

This is great. Rishi Kaneria made a quick supercut that stitches together scenes from Pixar movies according their particular color. Following the Roy G.

Monsters, Inc. as a horror movie is pretty intense

Monsters, Inc., one of my favorite Pixar movies, used the idea of monsters and scares and creepy creatures for laughs and a heartwarming story. This movie trailer by Ross Thompson paints the picture differently and re-cuts the scenes in the style of the Prometheus movie trailer. This is Monsters, Inc. the horror movie. » 9/03/14 12:04am 9/03/14 12:04am

Here are the most iconic shots in film history

You can recognize these shots even if you only saw them for a second. Because they've been spoofed and parodied, referenced and homaged, spliced into our brains through pop culture, recreated in conversation so many times that these iconic shots are what we'll remember even when we forget everything else. » 9/02/14 7:30pm 9/02/14 7:30pm
