Who knew Dorothy had it in her to take down Darth Vader? Researchers at the University of Turin have declared The Wizard Of Oz the most influential film of all time, with George Lucas’ beloved Star Wars landing in the runner-up spot. The team in Italy came to their conclusion after assessing more than 47,000 films across 26 genres. They found that 1939’s The Wizard Of Oz starring Judy Garland topped the list, outstripping all the others in how much it has inspired and been referenced in the film industry. It was followed by the original Star Wars film and Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. READ: Wolverine in concert? Not quite but Hugh Jackman is going on a world tour How exactly the study was conducted could be a potential point of controversy. The team developed a computer programme that measures the success of a film not by box-office takings or positive reviews, but by how many times it is referenced in other films, how many spin-offs it engendered, and whether the … [Read more...] about The Wizard Of Oz beats Star Wars as most influential movie of all time

Been to a drive-in movie lately? Probably not. Well, John Schneider wants to change that with the new Stars 'n' Cars Drive-In Cinema at his studios in Holden. After a soft launch a few weeks ago, the grand opening celebration is this weekend, with double features on Friday and Saturday nights. “Two things I’ve missed since I was a teenager are drive-in movie theaters and Southern horsepower comedies," Schneider said. "I’m proud to say that both of them now exist right here in Holden in John Schneider Studios!" One of those comedies, Maven Entertainment's recently-released "Stand On It," will be shown at 6 p.m. Friday, followed by a Q&A with Schneider, who stars in the "Smokey and the Bandit" tribute film. The Michael J. Fox-starring "Back to the Future" starts at 8:30 p.m. The outdoor theater, an ongoing addition to actor/singer/director Schneider's facility at 16050 Florida Blvd., features a 40-by-22-foot screen installed 12 feet off the ground for optimal viewing. The … [Read more...] about Drive on in to John Schneider’s new movie theater in Holden; grand opening is this weekend
Google “AvengersEndgame.com” and instead of finding information on the Infinity War follow-up movie by Marvel, you’ll be directed to the website for Once Upon A Deadpool instead. Sounds like a prank Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and his team would get up to – except it wasn’t pulled off by them. The mastermind behind the gag came forward on Friday (Dec 7) as @AGuyInChair on Twitter, and claimed to have purchased the domains for two Endgame-related web addresses: AvengerEndgame.com and AvengersEndgameMovie.com. And he’s keen to trade them for a Vibranium shield, Nordic hammer, sentient plant or just tickets to the Avengers Endgame premiere in LA. I own https://t.co/sQcc4R3sCq and https://t.co/spo7Bift9L . But I don't want them. I want to trade them for tickets to the #AvengersEndgame premiere in LA. A guy can dream, can't he? — Guy Inchair (@AGuyInChair) December 7, 2018 Looking to trade my #AvengersEndgame web domains for something cool. Vibranium Shield, … [Read more...] about Deadpool trolls Avengers follow-up movie with web address redirect
Some people are calling Marvel’s first Asian superhero flick as its next Black Panther moment. But the supposed project revolving around the character Shang-Chi is already getting flak from netizens. Why? The supposed Master of Kung-Fu is the son of the supervillain Fu Manchu. News broke on Monday (Dec 3) about the movie, with Marvel supposedly searching for an Asian or Asian-American filmmaker to direct the film, which already has Chinese-American screenwriter Dave Callaham (Wonder Woman 1984, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2) on-board. But the online sphere erupted when news hit China, reported South China Morning Post. While Shang-Chi, a relatively unknown character from the 1970s, seemed to escape the wrath of the Internet, it wasn’t the case with his questionable father. Fu Manchu is a fictional comicbook villain adapted from a criminal character from the 1930s that was created by English novelist Sax Rohmer, and one of a handful of characters said to propagate … [Read more...] about Marvel plans first Asian superhero movie – why are the Chinese calling it racist?
