Your Top Three: Coming-of-Age Movies
Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. Richard Linklater's Boyhood is not just one of the best coming-of-age movies in years, but it just might be the most genuinely qualified to exempify the genre. Not only does it depict the story of a boy coming of age, but because it was shot over the course of 12 years, it also documents the real-life coming of age of the actor playing that boy. Actual documentaries have done this in the past, but Boyhood one-ups those films by having the parallelling primary fiction narrative. There is, however, a series of classic French fiction films that's comparable to what Linklater did with his new movie. Francois Truffaut made five movies over 20 years centered on the...

The Best Movie Trailers of the Week
Welcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week. Unbroken There’s a lot going on in this new trailer for Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, but the piece is so well composed you actually manage to absorb it all. The opening aerial battle is such a strong attention grabber that the moment the piece shifts back to Louis Zamperini’s childhood, you’re ready and eager to experience everything right along with him. The visuals are all well composed and telling, Jack O’Connell has an incredibly captivating on-screen presence and both elements wind up further enhancing what’s already an astonishing true story.   The Hunger Games: Mockingjay...

See 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Reviewed in Comic Strip Form
Defying not only our expectations of what an effects-driven sci-fi movie can be, but also defying all odds as being a sequel to a reboot and still as worthy of praise as any film that's come out this year, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is quite a surprise. Our suggestion? Find a chimp to watch it with so you can talk about it afterward and let the healing begin.  CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE     MORE FROM AROUND THE WEB: ZergNet (function() { var zergnet = document.createElement('script'); zergnet.type = 'text/javascript'; zergnet.async = true; zergnet.src = 'http://www.zergnet.com/zerg.js?id=15794'; var znscr...

Your Complete Guide to Italian Cannibal Movies, Part 2
Read part one of our very thorough history of Italian cannibal movies here.   WARNING: SOME OF THESE CLIPS ARE NSFW    Not to be outdone by Deodato, Umberto Lenzi came back into the cannibal film fold in 1980 with his film Eaten Alive. The film opens with some really groovy disco music followed by several scenes of a Polynesian assassin killing white guys in major cities — with a blowgun! After taking out a target in NYC, our assassin finds himself on the wrong end of a human/truck encounter, and promptly dies. The police discover that he’s using poison darts dipped in cobra venom — and that he’s conveniently carrying a strip of film. The film shows some weird fertility rite with guys getting strung up by hooks. Unsure what the...

Here's Awesome Proof That Every Movie Is Better with More Batman
We’re firm believers that a little Batman makes pretty much everything in life better – and now there’s a hilarious Tumblr blog reaffirming that belief on a regular basis. It’s Better with Batman takes famous images from TV and film and places the Dark Knight himself into them, showing how much more awesome everything would be with Bruce Wayne’s involvement. Don’t believe us? Check out some of these examples… In this first image, we see how Stanley Kubrick’s classic Vietnam film Full Metal Jacket would have looked if R. Lee Ermey spent the Paris Island segment screaming at Ben Affleck’s Batman instead of Private Pyle. Look how sad Batman is.   With all the catching criminals and handing out beatdowns, it’s...

Movies That Never Happened: 'Alien' Designer H.R. Giger's Freaky Love Story About Self-Aware Limbs
Geeks around the world are still coming to terms with the passing of artist H.R. Giger – and while many will remember him for his fantastic artwork that helped make the Alien franchise a reality, Giger had countless other projects during the course of his career. The Mystery of San Gottardo was a science fiction film he’d been crafting since the 1970s, and it unfortunately never came to fruition. With Giger’s passing, it seems likely the project will never see the light of a film projector, but we can all marvel over the various concept-art pieces the visionary illustrator left behind. First conceived back in 1963, San Gottardo was set to be a “unique love story,” the kind only Giger could create. "It is about a man and his love for a...
