Francis Lawrence will spin those adaptations of The Hunger Games out as fast as you can eat them
Valentine’s Day has arrived. Yuck. However, if we’re very lucky, the Mayans could have correctly predicted 2012 to be the end of the world and, therefore, this will be the last V Day we’re ever subjected to. No more simpering teddies clutching hearts, no more tacky cards, no more bad-tasting chocolate hearts and no more wilting flowers. Hurray! To celebrate the (potentially) last Valentine’s Day ever, we’ve decided to count down our favourite silver screen lovers…
Are you bored of the usual vampires and witches and ghosts of the spooky season? Tired of the Scream mask people don when trying to make a movie reference in their Halloween costume? Us too. And that’s why we have lovingly compiled a how-to costume guide for your perusal. Dress up as any of these and your awesomeness points will, literally, hit the roof, so approach with caution…
It’s that time of the week again where we try and think of something to bicker about late this Friday afternoon. What is it this week? Well, you have to accept it though you might not believe it – Harry Potter! It appears that SOME people don’t think it’s worth the time of day, while others (ok, most) think it’s the best thing since sliced bread. Ready, steady, DUEL!
As the Harry Potter novels devoured increasing chunks of woodland in its pursuit of pages, the film series somehow managed to rein itself in despite the books’ increasingly labyrinthine plot arcs. In an attempt to highlight the best scenes lost in translation (that is, not even filmed as DVD extras), here is a (potentially spoilerific) list of moments you might have missed.
It must be a right pain in the proverbial to be one of those directors who is only known for one project. Sure, that project may be the last four films in the Harry Potter franchise and has made him very rich and very famous – but let’s spare a thought for those nineteen years prior to Hogwarts with this week’s David Yates Cheat Sheet shall we?
We need a little lie down
Every so often Hollywood runs out of actors and must pass the buck to a slightly less animate object. We celebrate such occasions with a collection of the greatest instances of anthropomorphism in cinema. Categorised into Puppets, Objects, Robots, Concepts and Miscellaneous, this list aims to question the importance of opposable thumbs and evolution in the production of unforgettable characters. Crack out Chip and Mrs. Potts, fill your nearest Brave Little Toaster and set Etch to entertain.
