Tag Archives: Groundhog Day
Greetings from the apocalypse! This week the groundhog is gonna see his shadow, which means six more weeks of nuclear winter. Seriously, though, I'm freezing my sack off one minute; the next I'm outside wearing a T-shirt. TAKE YOUR MEDS, EAST COAST GOD! There's several cool-looking flicks out and about this week, two of which I was present for filming, although neither director rubbed my belly for luck so no guarantees, people. Get More »
In 2003, William James Murray (better known to those who haven't spent hours reading his Wikipedia page as Bill Murray) starred in Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation," a poignant, somber romantic comedy that spotlighted the budding relationship between an aging film star (Murray) and the lonely wife of a photographer (Scarlett Johansson) in Tokyo. Murray was nominated for an Oscar for said performance, but he ultimately lost to Sean Penn's turn in "Mystic River."
At one point, he also did the Garfield movies.
But herein lies the massive injustice. Bill Murray should have been nominated for an Academy Award for every other movie he's done. There. We said it. The following is a comprehensive list of Murray movies where the Academy unconscionably overlooked his performance, starting from the very beginning of his illustrious career. Get More »
Is there some 8-bit wizard out there who could make our arcade fantasies come true?
Alas, we've got a pocket full of quarters but only a handful of "What If?" game cartridges. We'd love to walk in the pixelated footsteps of Donnie Darko, get stuck in a loop on "Groundhog Day" and rule the blocky beaches of Miami with Tony Montana. And we will. In our 1-octet dreams. Get More »
There's a reason you've recently had the urge to bust out your plaid shirts, Celine Dion albums and dial-up modems, as this week sees the release of two relics of the 1990s: "Titanic 3D" and "American Reunion."
Since both of these movies make us think back to a more innocent time when Monica Lewinsky was an eager young White House intern, our money wasn't on fire and Twittering was a weird body tic, we're reminiscing about that decade's most influential and essential cinematic treasures for future generations. It wasn't easy to narrow down the list (next time, "Problem Child 2," next time ...) but if we were to preserve only 25 flicks from the '90s in a time capsule, they would be these (listed in alphabetical order).

We scour the interwebs for the coolest movie news and more so you don’t have to…
•Yo ho ho, if you're thirsty for another bottle of Captain Jack's rum, here's a little something to tide you over: Myspace describes their visit to the set of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."
• Something wicked (awesome) this way comes. The "Harry Potter" franchise has provided us with countless magical moments over the years... and our friends at Virgin Media count down the best 20.
• The first rule of movie lists is you don't talk about movie lists -- Neatorama provides an exhaustive one of movies where the main character is just imagining things, or being imagined himself. Get More »
There's basic mash-ups. There's video sampling. There's recontextualized movie trailers. Then there's next-level, inhuman videos like the one below.
According to the creator of this "Groundhog Day" remix, this video took eight months to create and, given the amount of work that appeared to go into it, we're inclined to believe him. In fact, the only reason this just came out now, 17 years after the film's release, was that this was probably started the day the movie came out and only finished now. Get More »
Everyone's afraid of something (spiders... zombies... math...) but what sets your pulse racing is highly subjective. We've heard "The Exorcist" called "the scariest movie of all time," yet certain members of our editorial staff claim to yawn through every projectile emission from Linda Blair's mouth.
Those same someones nearly have an embolism at the mere mention of the clown from "Poltergeist." Different strokes for different folks, we guess.
Until we heard about "Buried." We all agree that being entombed with a lighter, cell phone and a limited air supply is the stuff of nightmares. But aside from an apparently universal fear of suffocation, there's a wide array of movies that push our personal buttons.
Here are the NextMovie staff picks for Films That Depict Our Worst Nightmares. Get More »
