Presto Gets You Ready For Halloween With A Scary Movie Collection

Halloween is coming up next Friday, and it’s as good a reason as any to settle in and frighten yourself with some horror flicks. Presto’s seasonally-themed scary movie collection of nine titles doesn’t actually have Scary Movie in it, but that’s fine.


How The Cast Of Fury Trained For The Most Realistic WWII Film Yet

Fury, the WWII film starring Brad Pitt, opens in Australian cinemas on October 23. The story follows a five-man tank crew as they make the last push into Nazi Germany in April 1945. And, to get things right, the filmmakers brought in a military advisor with 22 years of experience.


The Wall-E Version Of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar Looks Incredible

It’s no surprise that I love this. This movie trailer uses footage from Wall-E, my favourite Pixar movie ever, and transforms the story to match the trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which from what we’ve seen so far, is going to be fantastic. The result? An absolute thrill ride.


Ambition Is The New Sci-Fi Movie I Didn't Even Know I Wanted To See

It’s not Interstellar but now I want to see it just the same: Ambition is the sci-fi movie that nobody seems to be reporting about even while its main actor, Aidan Gillen, is arguably the best character in Game of Thrones – Littlefinger himself — and its director was already nominated for an Academy Award in 2002.

Inside The Galaxy Note 4's Virtual Reality Ambitions

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is now the best big phone you can buy, but it’s also something more. It’s the first smartphone designed with virtual reality in mind — just slot it into the Gear VR headset and a whole new world opens up. I say “the first” because I learnt something intriguing at Oculus Connect last month: Samsung is planning to build more.


A Bouncing Basketball Connects 24 Different Movies In This Absurd Video

I’m not entirely sure at what point I stopped thinking this video was incredibly stupid and started thinking it was incredibly hilarious but I think it was probably after The Big Lebowski got a hold of the basektball. And once it hits space thanks to Shaolin Soccer and Anchorman, I pretty much couldn’t stop giggling.

CineFix shows us what it thinks the best 10 slow motion sequences of all time are in the list below.
