Best Movie Moms

Mothers are incredible creatures, that’s a given. From your own to those of a fictional existence, all of the moms of the world each play a critical role in the story of our lives, or in the tales of our favorite pieces of media. They inspire the hero, teach them the fundamental building blocks of life, and energize them to continue on their own personal journeys – all the while being their own special brand of magical, smart individuals (or being terrifying villains of the horror sort, but that’s for another list.)

So with a certain mother themed holiday having just passed, along with the momma-positive flicks Life of the Party and Breaking In now in theaters, it is definitely time to celebrate some of the best moms in cinematic history. There will be some obvious choices for sure, but there are also some underrated ladies that need their moment to shine. Whether you would put them on your own list, or choose a different movie mom to recognize, there is no denying the importance these women have within their stories, and for the legacy of moms on film as a whole. So grab your bouquet of flowers – its time to pay the 10 best movie moms some respect! Read More »

Cinemaps Art Show

Everyone here at /Film loves artwork created in honor of our favorite movies and TV shows. One of our favorite artists is undoubtedly Andrew DeGraff, best known for creating a series of creations that have come to be called Cinemaps.

The Cinemaps series follows the paths of characters as they traverse around the various settings of their stories, tracing their path throughout cinematic locations. In honor of a new Cinemaps book collecting some of Andrew DeGraff’s work, Gallery 1988 is hosting an art show featuring a bunch of new pieces, including maps for Guardians of the Galaxy and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. You can check both of the pieces out from the Cinemaps art show them out below. Read More »

Terminator 2 - Billy Idol as T-1000

This year doesn’t mark a special anniversary for Terminator 2: Judgment Day, but since James Cameron’s action sequel is coming back to theaters in 3D, there’s a little bit of chatter about the 1991 film making the rounds as publicity for the re-release builds. That includes Robert Patrick, who played the liquid metal villain T-1000 in the sequel, discussing his history with the role, which resulted in the actor revealing that he wasn’t the person who was originally cast to play the part. Instead, that role was supposed to go to none other than rock star Billy Idol. Wait, what? Read More »

Terminator 2 4K Box Set

Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been available on various home video formats for over 25 years now, but this fall it will be available for the first time in the high quality format of 4K Ultra HD, and there’s even a limited edition box set that comes with quite the cool piece of memorabilia.

While you’ll be able to pick up your average 4K Ultra HD combo pack copy of Terminator 2 (which also comes with a Blu-ray and Digital HD copy), there will be a box set that comes with a life-size prop replica of the T-800 EndoArm, and it even comes in a case that resembles the one housing the arm at Skynet in the movie.

Get details on the Terminator 2 4K box set below. Read More »

Craig Drake Terminator 2

Get ready to say “Hasta la vista, baby” to some of those dollars in your banking account if you’re a fan of artist Craig Drake and James Cameron‘s action-packed sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Hero Complex Gallery has unveiled two new Terminator 2 prints created by Craig Drake, and they’re even officially licensed by StudioCanal. One takes the more traditional approach by having a title and credits while the other just lets the image speak for itself. Unlike most Terminator 2 posters, this one also lets Linda Hamilton shine front and center like the badass she is while Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 character looms behind her.

Check out the Craig Drake Terminator 2 prints below and find out when and where to buy them today.

Terminator 2 Remake in Grand Theft Auto V

Since it’s Memorial Day, a lot of people are enjoying an extended weekend. Whether you’re one of those people chilling out at home or stuck at work trying to kill some time as everyone else outside the office has fun, we have a good way to kill some time.

Someone with a massive amount of time on their hands decided to recreate Terminator 2: Judgment Day in its entirety by using a modded version of the video game Grand Theft Auto V. It’s surprisingly well done, and for those who don’t have the time to sit through all of the real film’s running time, this version is only an hour long and still hits all the finer points of the film.
