Every time a new Marvel Studios film comes out, there’s an influx of stories surrounding the film, from how it effects the future of the Marvel cinematic universe to easter eggs and more. The latest release is Ant-Man, and we’ve certainly run the gamut of stories surrounding the tiny superhero.
There have been Ant-Man easter eggs, examination of credits scenes, and even talk about who may or may not return for Ant-Man 2. Now we’ve got an Ant-Man sweded trailer, giving a quaint, homemade makeover to the big budget blockbusters, and it’s simultaneously adorable and impressive. Watch below! Read More »

Though it’s not perfect, the recent release of Ant-Man from Marvel Studios is a refreshing comic book adventure with a different tone, style and a contained story, bringing us one of the more intimate movies from the comic book studio.
One of the reasons it works so well, besides having solid lead Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Pena to steal every scene he’s in, is Michael Douglas. The veteran actor lends some credibility to the movie and brings some authenticity to the role of Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. However, fans might be disappointed to hear that as of now there’s no guarantee that we’ll see Michael Douglas in Ant-Man 2.

If you haven’t seen Ant-Man yet, we won’t spoil the fun credits scenes in this opening paragraph if you just haven’t had time to make it to the theater and want to go in blind.

Due to the overwhelming amount of CGI visual effects used in the Star Wars prequels, and all the complaining that followed from fans hoping for more practical filmmaking, Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams have really been hitting home their use of authentic, real, practical effects for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. They’ve been relying heavily on that message, as seen in the recent Comic Con behind the scenes reel.
But that doesn’t mean Star Wars: The Force Awakens won’t have its fair share of CGI visual effects. Undoubtedly, CG was needed to extend sets, hide puppeteers, and even create entire characters. (Hopefully none are as distracting or invasive as Jar Jar Binks.) However, it sounds like there aren’t a lot of shots in Episode VII that are completely CGI, with no practical effects whatsoever.

In just under a couple weeks, audiences will get to feast their eyes on the latest iteration of Marvel’s first family in 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four from director Josh Trank. We’re not sure if fans will turn out the way they have for Marvel Studios films, but with the hope of a crossover with X-Men on the horizon, maybe interest will be piqued.
In the meantime, you should check out this great trailer remix featuring the ominous voiceover from the Fantastic Four teaser trailer combined with footage from Roger Corman‘s infamous, ridiculous 1994 adaptation of the comic book property.

While some movies are immediately beloved and acclaimed, destined to be one of the films we talk about every year for decades, others come and go without much pomp and circumstance. One of those movies seems to have been A.I. Artificial Intelligence, the former Stanley Kubrick project that was completed by Steven Spielberg and released in 2001.
The film certainly wasn’t a dud, but it wasn’t universally acclaimed either. At the time, Rotten Tomatoes wasn’t used as a reference point for the quality of a movie, but retrospectively, it has a 73%, which is a decent score for such a dense, wandering sci-fi fairytale of sorts.
Over the years, as the film has gotten older, some critics and bloggers have revisited the film, finding it to even improve with age and reexamination. And that’s just what a new video has done, examining the film in a 15-minute visual study. Watch the Artificial Intelligence video essay after the jump! Read More »
