Many fans consider 2012 to be one of the best years for film in a long time. We’ve had great popcorn movies, huge epics, mind-melting indies and new films from some of the best filmmakers around. But every year has some stinkers and as good as 2012 has been, it’s probably been equally as bad too.
The team at NextMovie compiled four minutes of some of the worst movies of the year reviewing themselves. Which movies did they pick and what does each one say for itself? You’ll have to click below to find out. Read More »
OK, so while the idea of the guys behind Crank making a Ghost Rider film seemed like a good idea on paper, it didn’t quite work out that way. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has a few good sequences, sure, but most of it is fairly dire.
But there is a bit more entertainment to be had from the production. A set of deleted scenes and behind the scenes clips gives us a bit more footage of Nicolas Cage as he plays a man in the throes of demonic possession. The best part is that some of this material has unfinished effects, so we get to see the kooky light rig and makeup that Cage wore on set as he played Ghost Rider. Read More »

Watch enough movies, and you’ll find that you occasionally walk out of the theater sometimes with the vaguely disappointing feeling that you’ve just shelled out $14 to see a movie you’re already seen before. Sometimes, it’s no surprise that a film looks derivative — did anyone really expect Underworld: Awakening to wow us with its originality, for example? — but even great movies fall prey to old habits sometimes. The Avengers was exhilarating, but Lord knows we’ve seen the dear old Big Apple demolished more than a few times before, and often in very similar ways at that.
The Funny or Die folks point out the most familiar repeating shots and motifs in a video titled “Every 3D Movie is the Same.” Unfortunately, it seems their theoretical fact-checkers were dozing on the job, since a handful of the movies they cite were not, in fact, released in 3D. But even so, their point stands. Perhaps they should’ve just retitled it “Every Studio Action Movie is the Same”? Watch it after the jump.

Well fire and damnation, this week we’re all going to hell.
Nicolas Cage is riding to your local theater on a motorbike fueled by Satan and there’s little anyone can do to stop it. I’ve seen Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and, quite frankly, it ain’t good. That said, if I hadn’t seen it yet and twenty-five people told me it stunk, I’d still go. I love Crazy Nic Cage and I like fiery demons. What can I say, it’s something that speaks to me.
With Lucifer on the mind I figured this week’s column would be about Satan, Satanism, demons, witches, possession and whatnot. There’s a whole world out there beyond the obvious (fantastic) Exorcist, Rosemary’s Baby and the color-saturated visions of Dario Argento. Such as. . . Read More »
