Inside Out

Just yesterday, the entire SlashFilm crew participated in a collaborative list of the Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far. We all voted, and then crunched the numbers to figure out what the top movies were throughout all our lists. Films like While We’re Young, Inside Out and Ex Machina made the list, but several readers also had their own favorites.

So let’s see if this alternate list of The 10 Best Films Of 2015 (Thus Far) is any better received. I’m guessing that plenty will still disagree since this one includes some more obscure titles and foreign films that a lot of people haven’t seen yet. The list is presented in the form of a video essay, so watch below to find out what the best films of 2015 so far may be! Read More »

‘Terminator: Genisys’ – What Did You Think?

Terminator Genisys set visit

This week brings the first Terminator film since 2009, and the first Terminator film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger since 2003. Directed by Alan Taylor, Terminator: Genisys builds on the storylines from earlier Terminator movies, while simultaneously setting course for a completely new direction.

The story jumps between time periods and alternate timelines, as John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). When he arrives, however, he discovers the past is nothing like he expected. For one thing, this version of Sarah was raised by a T-800 (Schwarzenegger) who’s already informed her of her fate.

JK Simmons Terminator Genisys sequel?

Terminator Genisys is now in theaters, which means I can now share with you an interview I conducted with JK Simmons last week while covering the Genisys premiere in Berlin. I’m posting this after the release because Simmons’ character O’Brien is a second-half reveal, and so I don’t have to dance around that fact I talked to him about the film in full-on spoiler mode. (So you may not want to watch the video until you’ve seen the film.)

In addition to talking to Simmons about his role in this film, I also chatted with the Whiplash star about possible future Terminator sequels. Does his character survive Terminator Genisys? Could he appear in the planned sequels? Is he signed on for Terminator 6 and Terminator 7? If they were to make more sequels, how would his character fit into the future plans? Find out all this and more, after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Stephen Colbert interview Eminem

We’re in the heart of summer, and while blockbuster season is keeping us occupied for the time being (not to mention Comic-Con next week), a part of me looks forward to the fall when new TV shows start to hit the air. One of those shows will be The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and a new taste of what we can expect from David Letterman’s replacement has just surfaced.

We’ve already seen a hilarious teaser for The Late Show, where Colbert shaved the famous “Colbeard,” but now he’s done some serious prepping for the show by taking over the public access show Only in Monroe, straight from Monroe, Michigan. And who better for Colbert to interview than Michigan native and rapping sensation Eminem. Oh, and the interview goes on for 20 minutes. It’s just as awesome as you’d expect it to be.

history of the Terminator franchise

With the holiday weekend approaching, Paramount Pictures has already unleashed Terminator: Genisys in theaters. It’s a mind-numbing, time travel action adventure that doesn’t measure up to the greatness of James Cameron’s The Terminator or T2: Judgment Day, but runs circles around Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation.

But if you haven’t kept up with the Terminator franchise over the past few decades, you can catch up on Terminator history in 10 minutes with a new retrospective video that begins with The Terminator back in 1984 and moves up through Terminator: Salvation from 2009. It tells you everything you need to know, though it doesn’t explain the best way to deal with all the time travel that’s been happening.

Paul Rudd farting

In Marvel’s latest feature film Ant-Man, our titular hero has the power to shrink down to the size of an ant, not to mention being able to communicate with the little insects, and also use their impressive strength. But the film’s star, Paul Rudd, has another super power, but it’s pretty gross.

In a recent interview, the star of Anchorman and This is 40 simply couldn’t stop farting. The interviewer tried to move on, but giggling and “tooting” continued, making for a rather unique experience in movie promotion. It sounds gross, but it’s actually hilarious. Watch Paul Rudd farting during an Ant-Man interview below! Read More »
