Imagine it is Saturday morning. All the cartoon shows are over and now it’s adventure time on the ‘ol tube, featuring a classic sci-fi alien or giant monster flick, where radiation has run amok, creating creatures that are dead set on destroying (or at least squashing) the human race. Now flash-forward forty or fifty years and technology has finally caught up with the human imagination, and you get to see that fun old-school movie re-envisioned with realistic looking monsters and special effects. And there you have the 2014 version of Godzilla, a goofy, nostalgic and flat out fun update to the “King of Monsters” mythos.
On and off screen, it's been a bruising summer for Hollywood.
After the first trailer premiered several months ago, “Pacific Rim” quickly became one of the most anticipated movies of the summer season. The advertisements haven’t divulged much about the film’s plot or characters. For the most part, they’ve only shown big monsters fighting big robots and Idris Elba giving a heated speech to his troops. That’s still more than enough to make any fan boy swoon like a teenage girl watching “Twilight.”
Staggeringly implausible, cartoonishly comical, Roland Emmerich's "White House Down" is refreshingly dumb.
A flamboyant, funny, sexy performance from Rhys Ifans livens up "Anonymous," which is often a heavy-handed and needlessly complicated exploration of the theory that maybe William Shakespeare didn't really write all those plays and sonnets after all.
“2012”: Disaster movie maven Roland Emmerich (“Independence Day,” “The Day After Tomorrow”) crafts this apocalyptic sci-fi thriller following the prophecy stated by the ancient Mayan calendar.
Roland Emmerich, the director who brought us Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, announced that 2012 would be his final disaster movie.
Nerdvana blog: Hollywood’s master of disaster movies director Roland Emmerich is back this week with his newest tale of wholesale destruction, 2012. All of Emmerich’s previous efforts have been practice for his latest work, however. After warming up by destroying things piecemeal with weather, giant monster lizards and aliens, he’s moved on to wrecking the entire Earth at once.
LOS ANGELES — It's the end of the world as we know it, and Hollywood feels fine.
Hollywood might be telling its own life story this fall, presenting a lineup of liars, phonies, smooth talkers, bloodsuckers and greedy old men.
LOS ANGELES - Movie-goers went hunting for their inner caveman as they sat in the dark for the prehistoric adventure "10,000 B.C.," which led the weekend box office with $35.7 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
Compared to a bikini-clad Raquel Welch slinking around with stop-motion dinosaurs in the 1966 romp “One Million Years B.C.,” the anachronistic sins of “10,000 B.C.” are minor. Sure, director Roland Emmerich (“Godzilla,” “Independence Day”) jumps the Bronze Age by about 7,000 years, but no bikinis.
Filmmaker Roland Emmerich (“Godzilla,” “Independence Day”) is up to his usual tricks in “The Day After Tomorrow” — which is to say, pulverizing large chunks of the Western hemisphere. Those Germans and their wacky fetishes.
"Disaster’’ is probably too strong a word to describe last summer’s unprecedented box office sales dip, but since Hollywood is the land of hyperbole, we’ll use it anyway.
All the orcs have been killed, all the Matrices hacked, and 2003 — the year of the superfranchise — is but a fading memory.
