Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best.
Directors’ Trademarx is back! At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. To kick things off again, we examine the trademark style and calling signs of Steven Spielberg as director.
These days, the Summer blockbuster is commonplace and something cinephiles the world over look forward to experiencing every year. But there was a time when that wasn’t the case, and Steven Spielberg’s Jaws is credited with being the progenitor of the blockbuster; changing the landscape of movies and releases forever. For that, and many other reasons, Jaws is one of the most influential movies around.
I’ll admit, coming up with new ideas is not always easy. Furthermore, when it’s your job to create ideas and your performance is judged by how well those ideas are received, it’s understandable that you might use something that already has been proven to work. Horror movies are perhaps the best example if this.
The 1970s served up several films which had significant impacts on the world. There's no doubt Star Wars, The Godfather, and The Exorcist made a lasting impact on moviegoers across the globe. Another little film which probably caused many vacationing spots near the oceans to lose business in the summer of 1975 was Jaws.
If you're like me and love all kinds of movies from various decades, there are times in you wish you would have been alive to see some of your favorite 'classics' when they were up on the big screen. Unless you've got a time machine, then the theater chain Cinemark has you covered, because over the next couple months, they're showing off some classic films.
Yes, we're back! As you may have noticed, Saturdays with Spielberg has been gone a couple weeks. The first week was due to the madness of Comic Con, which I was clearly unprepared for. The second week was due to a little bit of Netlix ineptitude, in which they sent me the wrong disk. Because of the two week stall, we're a TAD bit behind. But never fret, readers; we have a contingency plan in order, and it will be put into effect soon. But let's not worry about that right now. We have other pressing matters...like a review of Steven Spielberg's third film, Jaws. That's pretty pressing indeed.
We here at TheMoviePool have been pretty adamant about our love of Blu Ray. We've heralded it time and time again as the best system of watching movies at home. However, it's a shame some of the best movies still haven't found their way to the format. But now, we can mark another film off our list of Blu-Ray Editions Needed. Because Jaws is coming to Blu-Ray and, better yet, it will be the version we all know and love!
Sometimes, all it takes is a good joke to brighten up your day. But for a movie fan, all it takes is a couple of weird crossovers, 30 second videos, and random images to make us happy. Hey, we're simple folk. But to find all this stuff, look no further than Laugh it Up, your weekly dose of LOL's and LMFAO's to put you in the right mind set. Well it may not be the smartest of comedy...it will certainly put a smile on your face.
This week, we have Jaws, Kick Ass, and a whole lot of The Big Lebowski.
