Wayne's World 25th Anniversary Screenings

Wayne’s World is not just the best movie based on Saturday Night Live sketch, but it’s one of the best comedies of all-time. Mike Myers and Dana Carvey represented the ’90s through-and-through with these two rock lovers and best friends who hosted their own public access television show in Aurora, Illinois. Today, they’ve dug back into the 1992 movie to kick off the second season of Josh Gad‘s virtual nostalgia train, Reunited Apart. Read More »

Tom and Jerry Movie Trailer

Tom and Jerry are undoubtedly television’s most famous cat and mouse duo, but for all their fame on the small screen, they’ve yet to be given a a blockbuster movie on the big screen. (No, we won’t talk about the animated movie in 1993 where Tom and Jerry talked extensively, going against everything that was great about the original animated shorts). Warner Bros. Pictures hopes to change that next year with their new Tom and Jerry movie that is slated to hit theaters in 2021.

The first Tom and Jerry movie trailer has arrived, and while it showcases the classic character designs for the titular characters in a sort of 3D cel animation style, for some reason, they’re being brought into the real world with a large comedic ensemble cast to support them. It looks like exactly what you’d expect from a movie that has been stuck in development hell since first being announced in 2009. Read More »

Lost in Space Movie

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Lost in Space (1998)

Where You Can Stream It: Hulu

The Pitch: In this big screen update of the classic 1960s sci-fi television series, the Robinson family sets off on a mission to find a habitable planet in order to save humanity as the Earth succumbs to pollution and global warming. But their trip is set off course by a terrorist organization using the opportunist Dr. Smith to carry out their nefarious plans to sabotage the mission. Stranded in uncharted space, the family encounters various threats, including aliens and temporal displacement, but their greatest threat might come from within their own crew.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: If you’re looking for an example of a movie that is misfiring on all cylinders, look no further than Lost in Space. Though we mostly like to point out movies in The Quarantine Stream that are worth watching for making some kind of commendable contribution to pop culture, in this case, this is a movie worth watching just to see how so many things can go so wrong, even when there are interesting elements that could have made for a good big screen reboot of classic sci-fi.

Coneheads

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Coneheads

Where You Can Stream It: Netflix

The Pitch: The alien family that originated on Saturday Night Live gets a full fledged feature film. Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin reprise their roles as the parental units of an alien family with cone-shaped heads. After their ship crash lands just outside of Manhattan, the two are forced to raise a daughter on Earth while waiting many years for a rescue vessel and acclimating to a human lifestyle as best they can.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: Movies based on Saturday Night Live movies either knock it out of the park or strike out hard. Coneheads is one of the best examples of how to take a comedy sketch and adapt it to a feature film. Though this is a movie where following alien couple trying to live life as humans on the surface, Coneheads is also a movie about an immigrant family following the American dream, and there’s even the government that’s trying everything in its power to upend that dream, drawing unfortunately still relevant parallels to today’s culture. And it’s also still incredible funny and packs an ensemble of some of the best comedians from Saturday Night Live and beyond. Read More »

Henry Golding Snake Eyes Reaction

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins would have brought the Hasbro toy franchise back to the big screen this year for the first time in over six years. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has forced Paramount Pictures to delay the movie from its fall release this year to an unknown date sometime in 2021. But that hasn’t stopped the film’s star, Crazy Rich Asians actor Henry Golding, from seeing an early cut of the movie, and he says that fans are “in for something insane.” Read More »

Knight Rider movie

Knight Rider is one of those properties Hollywood can’t seem to ever fully shake. The notion of a crime fighter using an artificially intelligent, technologically advanced car is evidently just too enticing to let comfortably settle into the ether of ’80s nostalgia, and for the past decade, studios have been trying to make a Knight Rider movie.

But after several false starts, a new version is now in the works. Aquaman and Saw director James Wan‘s Atomic Monster production company has teamed up with Spyglass Media Group to jump-start a feature film adaptation of the popular TV series.
