Modern Movie VHS Covers

Even though VHS tapes have long been dead, there are plenty of people who miss the unique cover art that used to come with them. There was something special about the VHS covers that we would see lined up on the shelves of our local video stores, and it’s just not the same with all the glossy, Photoshopped covers we see on most Blu-ray and DVD releases today.

Thankfully, another artist named Steelberg has decided to make even more modern VHS covers for movies released in the past couple years, and they’ll make you wish you could stumble upon these movies, take them home, forget to rewind them and pay a late fee. After the jump, you’ll find modern movie VHS covers for Stranger Things, Ready Player One, Creed, It Follows, The Final Girls, Pacific Rim and more. Read More »

2016 mtv movie awards nominations

It’s easy to make fun of the MTV Movie Awards. I know this because I did so in the headline of this very article. And yet, when you really break it down, they’re no more ridiculous than the Golden Globes – if the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association can come together to nominate a bunch of movies for statuettes, then why not allow the people running MTV to hand out buckets of golden popcorn to people they like?

So I hold no strong opinions on the 2016 MTV Movie Awards nominations. Are these the movies that I would have nominated for awards? Nah. But these most certainly are the movies MTV executives and producers think their audience wants to see nominated. In other words, welcome to an awards ceremony dominated by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Deadpool, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The /Film Crew’s 2016 Oscars Predictions

2016 oscar predictions

The 88th annual Academy Awards are this Sunday and this looks to be one of the most contentious ceremonies in years. There are no clear frontrunners in more than a few categories and many of the major nominees have as many detractors as they do boosters. For those who take an interest in awards season, it’s a rollercoaster. A glorious, insane, and frequently infuriating rollercoaster.

And while we here at /Film are not professional awards prognosticators, we are going to dive into this race head-on like the spirited amateurs that we are. We have put aside what we want to win and and have started focusing on what we think will win (which is easier said than done, because we’re team Mad Mad: Fury Road around these parts). We’re going to predict this year’s winners – and whoever gets the most right is going to win a shiny non-prize.

last rocky movie

Rumblings about a sequel to Creed began as soon as the first film became a box office hit and a critical darling. The possibilities for future Adonis Creed stories feel limitless – you just have to ask his mentor Rocky Balboa, who has graced the screen seven times now.

And while director Ryan Coogler probably won’t be back for Creed 2, the sequel certainly feels like it’s going to happen. It already has a 2017 release date and everything. However, Sylvester Stallone recently revealed that the first film may very well be the swan song for the Italian Stallion himself. Adonis still has an entire life ahead of him, but Rocky himself may be done.

creed 2 director

It may have been almost entirely snubbed at the Oscar nominations, but Creed is still a miracle of a movie and one the best entires in the entire Rocky series. And while Michael B. Jordan provides fresh blood and Sylvester Stallone supplies plenty of old soul, the film really works because of director Ryan Coogler. His stylish, intimate direction is a shot of adrenaline for a 40-year old franchise, leaving the door open for, yes, a sequel. Or even an entire new series of films.

Unfortunately, some super-sized commitments may keep Coogler from committing to the next chapter of the Adonis Creed saga.

2016 critic's choice awards

The Critics’ Choice Awards don’t always reflect what eventually goes down at the Academy Awards, but they reflect it just often enough to go under the microscope of hungry awards season analysts. If this year’s winners do predict the big winners at the Oscars next month, it’s awfully hard to argue with these picks. Mad Max: Fury Road swept through the awards, snatching technical wins left and right. However, Spotlight nabbed a handful of top prizes, including Best Picture.

Let’s dive into some minor analysis before we get to the complete list of winners.

Mad Max Fury Road - Coma the Doof Warrior

This morning brought the always debatable Academy Award nominations for the year in film that was 2015. We’ve already run through the disappointing side of this year’s selections by pointing out those who were snubbed, but now we’d like to look on the lighter side and point out some of the surprises, especially Mad Max: Fury Road finding glory with no fewer than 10 nominations. So let’s check out the 2016 Oscars surprises after the jump! Read More »

2016 oscar snubs

The 2016 Oscar nominations are here and you know what that means: it’s time to start complaining!

To be fair, this year’s nominees gave us a lot to cheer about. Mad Max: Fury Road (/Film’s favorite movie of 2015) walked away with a stunning ten nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. Other favorites, like Brooklyn, Spotlight, The Martian, and even Bridge of Spies racked up nods. As with any Oscar year, there was just as much to love as there was to hate.

So let’s give into our hate. And our confusion. And and our total bafflement. Because it wouldn’t be the Oscars without a bunch of big, weird surprises throwing everyone off track and inspiring furious debates about how wrong the Academy is on a yearly basis. Let’s run down the biggest snubs of the year.

creed review

A Rocky spinoff about Apollo Creed’s son may have sounded like a terrible idea on paper, but when Creed actually opened it was an unqualified success. Audiences loved it — it’s made $105 million so far in the U.S. and counting — and critics adored it. It made a creaky old franchise feel fresh again, without undoing all the earlier installments. Heck, it even won Sylvester Stallone a Golden Globe last night.

All of which is to say a Creed sequel was only a question of when, not if, and now we have our answer. MGM is reportedly eyeing a November 2017 release date for the film, putting it about two years after Creed‘s release. That’s the good news. The bad news is what this might mean for director Ryan Coogler‘s involvement.  Read More »

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of 2015

Top 10 Films of 2015

You know the drill. 2015 had plenty of great movies hit the big screen, and it was pretty difficult to whittle this list down to what you’ll see below. Surely your favorite movies are not the same as mine. My list is by no means meant to be definitive, especially since there are some movies I’ve heard great things about but just haven’t seen yet (my apologies to Carol and The Revenant). This is a collection of my personal Top 10 Movies of 2015, the ones that made me laugh really hard, made me cry or just hit all the right buttons. So let’s get to it. Read More »
