Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.
That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »

It was fun while it lasted. But after several months in the top spot, Guardians of the Galaxy is no longer the top grossing movie of 2014. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 overtook the Marvel film Wednesday when it passed the $333.17 million Guardians grossed domestically. Adding more fuel to the fire, Mockingjay Part 1 did this without a bump for 3D ticket prices.
Oddly enough, a similar scenario happened in 2013 when Iron Man 3 was the top grossing film of the year into early 2014 when a November release finally surpassed it. That film was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire so it seems like Marvel and Katinss definitely have a beef. At least later this year, when The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 is released, it’ll have to beat more than just Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’ll have Star Wars: The Force Awakens to contend with too.

I was watching Gone Girl for the fourth time and admiring how David Fincher (and his cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth) majestically shot Ben Affleck‘s character Nick Dunne’s cat and I began to wonder about the cat’s true role in the story. The cat is featured too prominently to be just a background prop. What did the cat mean?
As I thought about this I began to realize that there had been a lot of big screen kitties this year. The New York Times notes in their review that “cats are the new dogs,” and judging from the list of animals in this article, they might be right. But as I started to think about it more, it wasn’t just cats but dogs and some actually amazing performances by other animals in this past year of film. So the list of best animal performances of 2014 grew and grew. After the jump you will find my examination of why 2014 was the year of animal movie performances and what it all means. Read More »
CineFix’s latest edition of 8-bit cinema takes on Guardians of the Galaxy. The animated short film retells the movie via old-school 8-bit game tech. While the title is 8-Bit, the graphics look more like the 16-bit generation of video games to me (pushes glasses up like a nerd).
