Watch 8-minutes of the musical event of the year with advanced footage from the film and cast & crew interviews. Will the Oscar-winning director of the King’s Speech bring us a ground-breaking filmed version of the mega-hit musical? Or will the experimental recording method ruin what hardcore musical geeks have been falling in love with since the 80′s? Musical geeks are split on what we might be in for… so take a look and let us know what YOU think!
We have no Sylvester Stallone.
At least, not when it comes to Judge Dredd. As far as we’re concerned, Karl Urban is the law. Thanks to a pitch-perfect R-rated action film, Judge Dredd has finally made it to the screen in a way that is true to the comics that he first appeared in. Brutal, unflinching, and tough as nails, Dredd NEVER takes his helmet off in the film, and Matt was giddy as has was when he was 11 years old and reading his first 2000 A.D. Without any frame of reference but Sly’s miserable turn in the role in 1995, Nat definitely enjoyed the movie, while not on the level Matt did. What did you think? Let us know!
In an attempt to simultaneously capitalize on a long-running, brilliant UK comic, the superhero-movie craze, and the movie-going audience’s apparent tolerance for reboots, we’ve got a new Judge Dredd movie on our hands. With the always-awesome Karl Urban on board as the man himself, and rumours that he never (rightly) takes the helmet off, a 2000 A.D.-loving Matt is already seeing hope for this indie, but Nat has no frame of reference for Judge Dredd other than Sly’s abysmal 1995 turn in the role.
It’s no secret that Fox made Ridley Scott shoehorn an Alien storyline into his original idea for Prometheus. And it’s also no secret what happens in the entire movie has been shown to you if you watch the trailer. So what happens when you watch the movie as an Alien fan? You pay $20 for the IMAX 3D extended 2-hour version of the trailer and come away feeling kinda ripped off. At least that’s what happened to us. What about you? The worldwide release is upon us, so let those spoilers fly!
Anyone who is in love with Blade Runner or Alien has been waiting for Ridley Scott to come back to the Sci-Fi genre for nearly three decades.
And now, the wait is over…. At least, in England it is.
Prometheus has a June 1 release date across the pond, for everyone else, YGN wanted to give you the next best thing we can: almost 7 minutes of footage and cast/crew interviews from Ridley Scott’s eagerly anticipated prequel to Alien!
We’ll be posting some interviews and scenes from Prometheus, but in the interest of keeping spoiler-free until June 8, let’s keep the comments from our European friends as light on plot details as possible.
Matt brings on guest Puppetry expert Brian Hogg, founder of Hoggworks, to review Jason Segel’s new instalment to the well loved (and recently poorly handled) Muppet franchise! Since these are two children of the 80′s talking about what a child of the 80′s did with their childhood friends, it could get messy. And long.
The Geekiest movie of the year? Quite possibly.
If you were born in the 70′s or 80′s, the Muppets are as much a part of your childhood as the Transformers, Arnie, MJ, Voltron and G.I.Joe combined.
So when Jason Segel and Disney team up to bring back some of entertainment’s most adored characters, the 7-year old geek inside us all stirs and we can’t quite explain it, but we get a little bit misty eyed at the sight of a felt frog, a blonde pig, and a bear with whoopie cushions.
An best of all, there’s no reimagining, no CG puppets and no bad surgery. They all look exactly the way we remember.
These little fellas have skipped an entire generation, but now is the time for people of all ages to enjoy Henson’s genius on the big screen.
Right where they belong.
