Nick's Top 10 Movie Music Moments of 2014

Jan 14 // Nick Valdez
Honorable Mentions: Birdman - Flight scene, Snowpiercer - "What happens if the engine stops?," The Skeleton Twins - "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," 22 Jump Street - "Ass-n-Titties," Into the Woods - "Agony" [embed]218773:42129:0[/embed] 10. The Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 1 - "The Hanging Tree" as performed by Jennifer Lawrence Every year there seems to be a song that's meant to break into mainstream pop. Usually by happenstance, or some kind of weird popularity spike, and "The Hanging Tree" is 2014's single. Written by the Lumineers (with influence from the original text), and given an odd dance backing so it can be played on the radio, this moment may have been forced but it did show off the first actual rebellion against the Capitol. Like other parts of Mockingjay - Part 1, the scene finally opens up the world beyond Katniss and her compatriots.  [embed]218773:42130:0[/embed] 9. The Lego Movie - "Everything is Awesome/(Untitled) Self Portrait"  "Everything is awesome, everything is cool when your part of a team" was 2014's "Let It Go." There's a dollar theater in my town next to the local grocery, and when I first heard a little girl singing that song, I knew we had a winner. The scene it's used in doesn't hit perfect status until the "12 Hours Later" bit but it's still very good. Even better? Batman's demo tape, "DARKNESS! NO PARENTS!" [embed]218773:42132:0[/embed] 8. Guardians of the Galaxy - "Come And Get Your Love"  As critics like myself (although I'd like to think I'm as far from that definition as possible) continue to worry over the staleness of Marvel's films, the intro to Guardians of the Galaxy, featuring a nonchalantly groovin Chris Pratt dancing to a once forgotten Redbone tune, helps alleviate some of that worry. Starting off on the right foot, this scene helped set the tone for Marvel's future. It's going to be a lot more fun.  [embed]218773:42134:0[/embed] 7. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - "Elevator Beatbox"  You won't see the TMNT movie on many Best of 2014 lists, but I've got to credit where it's due. It may have be clouded by a bunch of odd decisions, but the Turtles themselves were great. Although they looked like giant steroid hulks, the few times they got to act like their "Teenage" namesake truly stood out. This came to a head in the elevator ride before the final battle with Shredder. It's the most fun scene in this film, and it's completely unnecessary when you think about it. But it's full of so much personality it's hard to care. I want the sequel to basically be this scene x 100.  [embed]218773:42133:0[/embed] 6. The Guest - "Anthonio" The Guest has one of the best soundtracks of 2014. Fusing synth pop and trance together with little known European Pop remixes, and coupling them with a nostalgic run through the horror genre lead to one of the best musically inclined films of the year. The Guest owes most of its successes to its soundtrack and it's never better than the final scene. A stare down, a remix of Annie's "Anthonio," and a sinister Dan Stevens are a match made in heaven.  [embed]218773:42135:0[/embed] 5. The Book of Life - "Just A Friend/The Apology Song/I Will Wait" as performed by Diego Luna, Cheech Marin, and Gabriel Iglesias I think The Book of Life'll be the only time I hear Tejano-inspired music in film and that's a bit sad. Like me, it takes influences from classic pop tunes and unapologetically puts a little Mexican flair into each one. There's too many awesome songs to name (but the one touted as the "big" one, where Diego Luna performs a cover of "Creep," is kind of lame) with the too brief "Just a Friend," and the great "Apology Song" sung to a flaming skeletal bull in the Land of the Forgotten, but my favorite is definitely the montage set to "I Will Wait." It's hilarious, critiques Mexican culture, and it just sounds so pleasant.  [embed]218773:42137:0[/embed] 4. The Interview - "Firework" as performed by Jenny Lane Although the clip above doesn't refer to the scene on this list (as it's much better to experience it without being spoiled), trust me when I say that it's truly a great movie music moment. The scene that launched a thousand emails, and was most likely toned down in retrospect, but it's a damn fun scene. Much like the rest of The Interview, it makes sense in the most absurd way. Hope you get to see it for yourself.  [embed]218773:42138:0[/embed] 3. X-Men: Days of Future Past - "Time in a Bottle" With as many comic book films I see now, they all start to blend in together after awhile. What woke me up from my haze, however, was Days of Future Past. While the rest of the film followed the same beats, and Quicksilver himself wasn't the most interesting addition, I've never seen a better demonstration of super speed. Sure we've seen this type of slowdown in films like The Matrix, but I can't recall seeing it used so humorously. It's the little touches that made everything work.  [embed]218773:42136:0[/embed] 2. Frank - "Secure the Galactic Perimeter/I Love You All" as performed by Michael Fassbender Frank is a film about twelve people saw, and that's a damn shame. It's got some of the best music from 2014. The songs were notably assembled by the cast (and not even available in full on the soundtrack) and they're just so weird. Good weird. While the final song "I Love You All" gets the full bump on this list, it doesn't really mesh as well as it should until you've seen the film. Once you've seen the film, learned of all of Frank's quibbles, then it truly comes together.  [embed]218773:42139:0[/embed] 1. Whiplash - "Caravan" as performed by Miles Teller God, Whiplash has the best f**king music. That finale? So gooooooooooooooood. What are your favorite music moments of 2014? Agree or disagree? Leave a comment below or hit me up on Twitter! Stay tuned through the rest of the week for more "Best Of" lists!

FlixList: Ten Cartoons that Deserve Big Movies

Aug 19 // Nick Valdez
Honorable Mentions: Dog City, King Arthur & the Knights of Justice, 2 Stupid Dogs, Biker Mice From Mars, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, Mighty Max, SWAT Kats, Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?, Arthur, Dexter's Laboratory, Captain Simian & the Space Monkeys, Pepper Ann, Darkwing Duck, Swamp Thing, M.A.S.K., Reboot, Most Disney cartoons, Teen Titans [embed]218176:41751:0[/embed] 10. Street Sharks Sure Street Sharks is essentially the same show as TMNT if the turtles were trash talking punks, but man it was JAWSOME. With all of the current shark hype, now's the best time for a Street Sharks reboot. Let Michael Bay produce this one, give it the worst best screenwriter, and then watch the cash roll in.  [embed]218176:41753:0[/embed] 9. The Mysterious Cities of Gold I know this one's been given a face lift thanks to a recent mobile game, but I really want this on the big screen. This is one of the rare occasions where I'd prefer live action for the property. Full of gorgeous backdrops, education, mystery, and non-White protagonists (with Spanish, Incan, and Egyptian influences), and childlike wonder. It's a show that didn't get the following it deserved. Come back, Esteban.  [embed]218176:41754:0[/embed] 8. Ed, Edd & Eddy A cool cartoon about three con men working over marks during Summer vacation. I really don't need to explain why this should be a movie, do I?  [embed]218176:41752:0[/embed] 7. Mummies Alive HE HAS THE MUMMIES! PROTECTING 25 B.C.  HE HAS THE MUMMIES! SOMETHING SOMETHING RAMSES [embed]218176:41756:0[/embed] 6. Gargoyles I remember having a tough time following Gargoyles. Being one of the first "dark" cartoons with a through plot line, I couldn't miss an episode because I'd come back super lost. And since I had missed so many, I think I singlehandedly canceled this show. I just really want to see a film version of this out of cold, hard guilt. Also for the possibility of seeing Keith David don giant grey wings and a mullet. [embed]218176:41755:0[/embed] 5. Bravestarr Bravestarr should really be more popular. A Native American sheriff fighting space aliens and robots in a version of Texas on the moon (or something)? And you're saying he has an ass kicking, wisecracking horse that transforms into a man horse? Why hasn't this been adapted for film yet? Do studios not want my life savings?  [embed]218176:41758:0[/embed] 4. Thundercats Remember when Thundercats nearly got a motion picture? Something happened during production that saved us from what was most likely a disaster. Then we got that neat, but short lived reboot on Cartoon Network a few years ago. We're overdue for a full fledged Thundercats film. I'd probably see it twice. Hell, just give actors cat noses and save money if that's the issue.  Sight beyond sight, badass beyond badass. [embed]218176:41759:0[/embed] 3. Captain Planet and the Planeteers Although it'll never be as good as the Funny or Die shorts with Don Cheadle, I really do think a Captain Planet film could work. Take out some of the 80-90s fluff like mullets, Indian children with monkeys, and "love" and you'd have a current Hollywood blockbuster. I mean if LeVar Burton can bring back Reading Rainbow, we can at least get a 90 minute film. Or a fan film. Anything. The power is yours, Internet. Make it happen.   [embed]218176:41760:0[/embed] 2. Kim Possible Call me, beep me, if you want to reach me when Kim Possible finally gets her big screen debut. I know the show has gotten some movie length TV specials on Disney Channel, but if there's any Disney cartoon worth adapting, it's this one. Featuring a teenage cheerleader (who also happened to be a really great super spy), and her goofy best friend as they take on all sorts of colorful bad guys. Literally colorful with a blue guy, a green lady, and I believe there was a red one at one point. Slick action, great comedy, and featuring one of Christina Milian's few hit singles.  [embed]218176:41761:0[/embed] 1. Samurai Jack  This one hurts more than any other cancellation. Getting cut short after just one awesome season, we never got the final battle between Jack (a samurai wielding a mystical sword) and Aku (a demon who sent Jack years forward into the future). Although talks for a movie began shortly after the series ended, it was never meant to be. Although this list is about shows I want to see on the big screen, it's really just a thinly veiled list of shows I'd like to see again. Jack never made it back home.  AKUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU What did you think Flixist community? Am I wrong about these decisions? Are you made I forgot about Young Justice until right now? Leave a comment below or write a c-blog telling me why!

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Aug 08 // Matthew Razak
[embed]218166:41740:0[/embed] Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesDirector: Jonathan LiebesmanRated: PG-13Release Date: August 8, 2014  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles once again starts the franchise over, which is a bit ludicrous considering there is hardly a person on earth who doesn't know that four turtles named after Renaissance painters (Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo) are dosed in some ooze that turns them into mutants. They're trained by Splinter, a giant rat, who was also doused in it, in the ways of the ninja. April O'Neil (Megan Fox), a reporter, is the first human to discover them and works alongside to help defend the city from The Shredder and his evil ninjas, the Foot Clan. The new movie does very little to change this except to switch around the cause of the ooze spilling on the turtles and tying O'Neil into their origins a bit more. Despite re-introducing the turtles being almost entirely unnecessary the film does it once again and brings in Vernon Fenwick (Will Arnett) for some reason as O'Neil's sidekick. The plot is basically the turtles fighting shredder, but it takes half the movie to get to it. Unfortunately the first half of the film is the Apirl O'Neil show and it is a pretty boring/annoying show. What they seem to be doing is trying to build up to the reveal of the turtles, but there is no build up because we all know what they look like and who they are. It's even more annoying because while the characters of the turtles are actually really interesting, especially Leonardo and Raphael's headbutting, O'Neil is not. The character is incredibly annoying and underdeveloped despite having half the movie to herself. However, once the movie ditches O'Neil and actually becomes about the turtles it's surprisingly good. Despite the turtles looking like ass the movie maintains the nature of their characters, and that's always what has made them work. Donatello is made a bit nerdier than ever, but it works to make him a more defined character and Michelangelo is nailed as the comedic relief. Leo and Raph don't have quite enough time to really turn into the characters they should be, but that's because of the wasted time on April in the first half of the film. If we're going to get sequels it's a good sign that once we start seeing the turtles as characters the movie becomes immeasurably more enjoyable. What else works is the action. Despite director Jonathan Liebesman having a track record worse than almost any current Hollywood director he actually pieces together some really impressive action this time around. It may be some of the best of the summer. It works with the uniqueness of having giant turtles as your action stars and pulls together some impressive fights. The snow scene shown off in the trailers is especially impressive and damn near worth the price of admission in and of itself. The fights work well too, despite the fact that they needlessly turn Shredder into a giant robot, knife-throwing thing that's possibly dumber than the film's needless focus on O'Neil. Shredder, this badass, evil ninja leader, is turned into wrote copy of Wolverine. The robot Shredder points to the real issue with the first half of the film. Like an empty, robotic suit there's a serious lack of soul. The turtles don't seem like a family since we barely see them and when Splinter first comes on screen there's almost no actual connections. It's all forgivable, however, since the film finally pulls it together and starts delivering through the interaction of the turtles as four brothers. It's just too bad that producer Michael Bay makes the same mistake he does with Transformers and ignores the interesting characters to instead focus on the humans for the first half of the movie. The fun is still there, but the soul doesn't arrive until later in the film. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a beloved childhood franchise for nearly three generations of children now. That puts a lot of pressure on a movie like this. There's a love and passion there for the characters, and that's why it's so disappointing that the movie ignores them for so long. Thankfully, Ninja Turtles is fun enough and has good enough action to make up for its (literal) character flaws. When the movie finally does decide to deliver the turtles we came to see it does it well. I just wish they remembered who the movie was named after sooner.
