Tilda Swinton's Most Terrifying Roles
Interesting
Tagged: Tilda Swinton
Yes, that really is Tilda Swinton in "Snowpiercer." Although no stranger to grotesque transformations, the actress has never looked or sounded more ghastly than she does in Bong Joon-ho's dystopian railway thriller. Her thick-rimmed specs, dark brown pageboy, fur coat, buck teeth and harsh, guttural Yorkshire accent suggest some unholy hybrid of Anna Wintour and Dr. Mengele. A totalitarian's lapdog who elicits revulsion and (eventually) pity, Swinton's Mason is another indelible screen villain in a career full of brilliant baddies.

Is It Just Me?... Or Is Prometheus The Best Alien Movie? | TotalFilm.com

In our regular polarising-opinion series, Total Film writer Sam Ashurst asks, is it just me? … or is Prometheus the best Alien movie?



Let's face it: to slam dunk this argument faster than Ripley throwing a basketball over her shoulder, all I have to do is prove that Prometheus is better than two Alien movies – the first one, and the second one. Alien 3 was launched out of the airlock by its own director, Alien: Resurrection featured a character that looks like big wet white dog poo and the Alien Vs. Predator franchise was so terrible it's been scientifically proven that no human has watched any of them without glancing at their smartphone at least once. Seriously, I'd rather leap out of a plane into a jungle full of alien hunters with only a face-hugger for a parachute before I'd even watch a trailer for one of those things.

10 Craziest Jurassic Park Book Scenes That Should Have Made The Movie | TotalFilm.com
Interesting
Tagged: Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park is one of the best page-to-screen adaptations ever, but it's not one of the most faithful. Spielberg's thrill-ride shares its characters, setting and its most prominent dino-stars with the book, but Michael Crichton's novel is a very different beast.

The book is drenched in scientific detail, technical mumbo jumbo and lavish lashings of blood and gore. It's a scarier, darker story with numerous scenes that wouldn't have suited Spielberg's family-friendly classic.

So here are ten scenes we'd have loved to have seen on film.

The things action movie heroes get up to on their days off | Den of Geek

What do the film characters of Schwarzenegger, Van Damme, Stallone, Norris et al get up to in the non-action bit of an action movie? Er...

NB: This article contains certain words and images which may be considered unsafe for work.

When asked what he did between acting jobs, Robert Duvall once said, "Hobbies, hobbies and more hobbies." This is fair enough because, to quote James Bond, "everybody needs a hobby." Bond himself has all kinds of things to do in his spare time: playing Baccarat and Poker, talking to exotic ladies and drinking Martinis. For all we know, Bond might also be into origami and bell ringing.

The question is, what do other action heroes get up to when they're not shooting bad guys, blowing up trucks or rescuing their daughters from Val Verde? In most movies, we never find out. But in very, very rare instances, we do get to see what the toughest men of action do on their rare days away from the theatre of war. Things like these...

This weekend, the Johnny Depp-starring "Transcendence" opens in all its technophobic glory, across the nation, and while the reviews, ours included, so far, have ranged from mildly poisonous to all-out toxic, the proof will as ever be in the box office pudding. But not only is it a litmus test for whether or not Depp's star power can carry a film outside the Disney/Tim Burton blockbuster ghetto he's painted himself into, the film is also the testing ground for the tricky horse-change pulled by its director, longtime Christopher Nolan Director of Photography (DP) Wally Pfister.
