Given the nature of Takashi Miike’s work, it’s only natural that someday he and Quintin Tarantino would cross paths, which is exactly what happened with Sukiyaki Western Django. Please note that this is not a Tarantino film, which anyone who hears about this movie seems to think.
We may be late to the party on this one. But our list of reasons to see Darren Aronofsky’s new movie just got longer with the realization that Marisa Tomei plays a stripper. A naked stripper. For the uninitiated, Tomei is a serious MILF who has somehow only gotten hotter with age. Here area few pics.
Netflix put on a movie-watching marathon in New York City. Suresh Joachim and Claudia Wavra sat through 123 hours and 10 minutes of entertainment, which translates into 57 movies of various quality. The last movie was Thelma and Louise, but I guess even a brutal rape isn't enough to keep you awake after that many hours of movie-watching.
Recap: Season 5, Episode 2 "Business Ethics" I almost feel bad calling this a bad episode, because it was still funnier than most other things on TV, but compared to the premiere from two weeks ago, "Business Ethics" is a bit of a drag. At least we got to see Dwight piss into a soda bottle. Michael and Holly:
FX hit the ball out of the park when it took a chance on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and they're hoping to recreate that offensive, indy magic with their new series Testees. I have seen the premiere and I can tell you that it's almost as funny as it is totally ridiculous.
I would be interested in watching a behind the scenes sort of thing of Smashing Pumpkins touring back in 1996. But 2007 does not have the same appeal.
Season 12, Episode 8 "The China Problem". The guys had a long summer vacation and they have clearly saved up some of their frustrations to fuel the fall premiere. Eric and Butters take on our former Olympic hosts, the Chinese, while Kyle, Stan and Kenny try to nail George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg for "raping" Indiana Jones. Yes.
South Park is back for the second part of season 12 and it has reminded me of how much I love hating Eric Cartman. That little boy has done some truly messed up stuff and this is some of the worst. Or should I say best? Whatever. 9. Molesting Butters
Second Commie-related post of the day. Here’s one from the International News Desk. The Kremlin is looking to have a ‘closer’ relationship with the movie business. If there’s anything we’ve ever learned about film, it’s that the way to make good ones is to put a government bureau in charge of it.
Guys, this one is right off the wires, so we only have one picture to substantiate it. We left about 17 messages with George’s publicist but have not received a confirmation as of yet. There is some speculation that the moustache is not real, and is just part of an elaborate publicity stunt on the part of the Clooney camp.
We only have so many eyeballs, which means we need a little help covering every little thing that happens on TV. We're looking for aspiring writers, or at least people who speak English, to write some episode recaps for us. You'll get a byline and everything. If you want in, send a sample recap of the latest episode of your favorite TV show to FeedbackATscreenjunkies.com.
Stiffler’s inane pretty-boy-where’s-my-car antics were never really my bag of cats. But every once in a while a movie can come along that’s just good enough to redefine an actor for you. Tropic thunder did it with Tom Cruise. And Role Models accomplished this by pairing Sean William Scott with Paul Rudd, a great clash of pussy-chasing eternal optimism and thirty something angst-frump. It was thoroughly enjoyable.
Halloween is fast approaching, so for this week's contest I decided to use a grab from one of the most disturbing scenes in movie history: The ending of Sleepaway Camp. So, REGISTER AN ACCOUNT SO WE CAN CONTACT YOU then leave a comment with something hilarious to go in that bubble. If you're the king of LOL, you get a copy of Patholog on DVD.
The makers of spoof comedy, American Carol are claiming that theaters that don't agree with the film's political content are fudging the numbers by giving people the wrong tickets, thus making it look like the film is an even bigger failure than it already was. Poor Kelsey Grammer.
I have been working my way through the Godfather DVDs that were released a couple weeks ago and it's blowing my mind. It's amazing how good those movies…well, the first two movies are especially after Coppola got back in there and tweaked the look. Nothing quite that epic this week, but still a really solid week to blow your paycheck on movie discs.
We’ve all been getting a serious giggle out of Fake Michael Bay’s Twitter feed since it exploded on the interwebs late last week. But it looks like the jig may be up. We were sent this letter by a party which shall remain anonymous.
Season 3, Episode 4: "I Am Become Death." This week we're taking another trip four years into the future, when—wait for it—the world is going to end! Who would've thought? Peter:
The Vatican has planned a 139-hour bible reading marathon on Italian TV in hopes of making the church more cool. They are calling it “a sort of ‘Big Brother’ of the Holy Scriptures, but with really high cultural value.” Wow.
This Coen Brothers classic has more than just fantastic dialog and the best bowling sequences ever filmed. It also has some valuable information that can help us live like the men we aught to be. 11. A nice rug can really tie a room together.
Episode 2.10, “The Inheritance” starts on Pete Campbell listing potential clients in a meeting with Don and the bunch. Looks like the team is headed to Pasadena to schmooze with the aerospace industry about finding ways to sell their image. Back in the bedroom with his wife, there’s still tension about the no-baby, and Pete is not hearing any of it.
There were a lot of new movies to choose from this weekend, none of which were particularly spectacular, but the fact that Beverly Hills Chihuahua could take the top spot, raking in almost $30 million hurts my heart like a thousand double cheeseburgers. Please, look at that picture up there and join me in my indignation.
Recap: Season 5, Episode 5 "The Truth Seekers" Hey, look at that. Vince still can't get a job. But rather than addressing the cliffhanger set up at the end of last week's episode, the gang takes off into the dessert to trip balls. Vince:
Let me first say that I have a ton of respect for George Romero and getting to interview him was one of most awesome and dorky things I have ever done. But, Diary of the Dead was kind of horrible. Hopefully his new movie, which he has reportedly started shooting on an island in Canada, will be much better. And no one better mention an "Youtube messageboards" this time.
The National Federation of the Blind is angry about Blindness. Not the condition. Well, actually they're angry about that. Like in general But in this case its a movie with Mark Ruffallo and Jullianne Moore that is pissing them off.
Looks like we were able to get our hands on an early promotional poster for the upcoming Yogi Bear live action movie. And I gotta say, just reading the synopsis has got me VERY interested.
It's freezing out today and I'm in a bad mood because tonight's debate is bumping The Office (I know, that's pathetic), but the news that Martic Scorsese and Robert De Niro are doing another mafia project has made my morning just a little brighter.
A prison beating is a great start to a TV show. Recap: Season 1, episode 5. We're introduced to a few new characters who happen to be in jail. The member, Otto, arranges for his buddy Chuck to get some protection from the club when he gets out.
There's something calming about sitting down with one of the God of War games and mashing buttons until your thumb is bleeding and everything on-screen is dead. There is, however, a sparkley little bit of doubt in my heart that Hollywood's favorite—and certainly its shiniest—bad boy director, Brett Ratner, can make that translate to the big screen.
Well folks, it looks like our brethren to the South East have run out of time on contract negotiations between allied Bollywood Unions and the Association of Motion Picture & TV Program Producers. Cameramen all across the subcontinent have put down their VHS camcorders and refused to return until demands are met.
