Movie-Watching Will Never Be The Same

Movie-Watching Will Never Be The Same

Why would anyone want to download movies, anyway? Watching movies at home has never been easier, with just about everyone having access to DVD rentals or, even more convenient, a home DVR device. We can now record and watch movies and television on our computers or handheld devices, when and where we want.

Conducting an online search for “downloading movies” will prove the point: There are countless sources that claim to offer unlimited, free, full-length movies. But not all of these sites are created equal. Yes, there are many sites that do legitimately offer what they promise, but there are more than a few not what they say they are.

With so much choice at your fingertips, there are a few pitfalls that can easily be avoided if you know what you ...

Burger King in Germany

Burger King Germany is running a crazy campaign for The Rise of Skywalker. Fans of the Star Wars franchise can go into a participating restaurant and read spoilers aloud from the upcoming movie in exchange for a free Whooper. That’s just the start though. The whole place is decked out in spoilers for the final installment in the Skywalker Saga, including the burger wrappers and straws. Burger King went ahead and did this by themselves with no participation from Lucasfilm or Disney, which could be kind of risky.

To get around the legalities of the situation, Burger King Germany does not mention The Rise of Skywalker or Star Wars by name. The iconic block lettering of the official logo is used, but everything is tweaked a bit...

Shop Behind ‘The Lion King’

The Lion King

The Lion King

VFX studio Motion Picture Company (MPC), responsible for the visual effects in Disney’s 2019 live-action The Lion King, is reportedly closing the shutters on its Vancouver office, as of this morning. This decision comes only months after the movie became the fourth Disney film to break $1 billion at the box office this year. Their studios in Toronto, Montreal, LA, Paris, and Adelaide will remain open. According to Cartoon Brew, a letter circulating online revealed the closure was due to “increasing external market pressures in Vancouver and more attractive opportunities in other locations.”

If you’ve managed to avoid seeing the heavily disappointing The Lion King this year, chances are you’ve still seen the impressive work created by MPC elsewhere...

10 Great Serious Performances

Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems

Hollywood can be a cutthroat business, so when a performer learns that they do something well, and can consistently get paid for it, it often makes sense for them to continue doing that thing. It’s why a lot of comedic performers generally stick to making comedies for the bulk of their careers. That being said, when a certain level of comfortability is reached, it gives actors the freedom to start testing their range and trying new things, and as we’ve seen many times in movie history, the results can be phenomenal.

This week we have a perfect example of this kind of move arriving in theaters in the form of the Safdie brothers’ crime drama Uncut Gems starring Adam Sandler – so we figure now is as good a time as any to look back at some of the best serious performances ...

Another ‘Mad Max’ Film

Another 'Mad Max' Film

Another ‘Mad Max’ Film

As movie websites post their best films of the 2010s list, you see titles pop up over and over again. One of the most consistent films featured on these list is Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller’s hellacious action movie about a wild car chase through the post-apocalyptic wasteland. On ScreenCrush’s own best of the decade list, Fury Road came in #4. So you know it must be good.

It took Miller almost 30 years to make Fury Road after the previous Mad Max sequel, 1985’s Beyond Thunderdome, but according to the filmmaker himself, he’s prepping the fifth Mad Max film right now. In an interview with Deadline he said that he’s “not done with the Mad Max story”:

There’s certainly another Mad Max coming down the pike after this...

Animation In Movies Important

Why Is Animation In Movies So Important?

The movie producers have wowed us with their creativity and imagination for years. The viewing public has craved the new and demanded that the movies they watch take them to new levels of thrills and the unimaginable. This is the exact reason why animation in movies is so important.

In the early days animation was sketchy at best. The most we could have hoped for was less than realistic images of giant lizards and insects that terrorized the country side. That all changed when computers came into being. The computer age helped to blur the line between fantasy and reality to give us the movies that we love so much. Using the newest technology allowed film makers to bring to the screen that which was deemed impossible in the early days of movies.

Director Trevorrow Donating Residuals

Former Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker director Colin Trevorrow announced that he planned to donate all the residuals made from his work on the film to charity. Trevorrow, who has a story credit on the film, plans to donate the money to the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice, a British center in Berkshire. Although the director parted ways with the film before it began production, Trevorrow has been nothing but a cheerleader for the final film in the franchise. Lucasfilm in turn kept Treverrow’s writing credit for Episode IX, hence the reason why he will receive the royalties in the first place. Trevorrow’s decision was wise and will likely cement himself well with Star Wars fans, even though he is no longer the director for the final film.
