We're sick of seeing the same 50 movies on every best horror list. We all know that The Exorcist is an incredible movie, I don't need anymore magazines or websites to tell us about it. There is a lot of good stuff that has come out of the past two decades that doesn't get the kind of recognition it deserves.
I am ridiculously fascinated with anything having to do with the illicit trade in guns, drugs, and sex. I can read books about this stuff till the wee hours of the morning. It blows my mind that the black market accounts for so much of the world’s economic trade. Most people just ignore its existence because it does such a good job of hiding itself.
We don't always have time to give every story the kind of love (hatred) it deserves, so here are some stories you can go and find read about for yourselves, you resourceful little film buffs. Below is a trailer mash-up that has Willy Wonka as a drug dealer. Wait, I thought that's what that movie was about in the first place.
It was on the wires today that Shelly Malil was taken into custody after his girlfriend was stabbed 20 times. Shelly had a role in the 40 Year Old Virgin. It’s one of those names that I wasn’t sure about, so I checked him out on IMDB. I was surprised by what I found.
Last week, when I posted that trailer for the fake Mother Teresa biopic, I did some bitching about how Megan Fox's unbelievable hotness was really its only redeeming quality.
We all know that one of the most difficult tasks of men’s lives is the process of trying to understand women. It is often mindboggling, able to drive us to fits of rage and utter confusion. But the reality is that they smell REALLY good, and whether we like it or not, we need them.
this is a test of test
Ah Quentin, always making news. Today it was his decision to cast Eli Roth in the forthcoming remake of Inglorious Bastards. We understand: throw your friends some work. But when you have a chance to fix your career (which is not Death Proof) maybe it's best to set the nepotism aside.
I like Mark Rufallo. I think he’s one of the most underrated actors out there. Variety announced today that he’s inked a deal to direct his first movie.
I don't expect much from awards shows or teenagers, so when you combine the two you can pretty much expect a few hours of television that will make you want to go out and start randomly sterilizing 13 year olds with a pair of gardening shears. Why?
It's strange to see Will Ferrell talking nonchalantly and laughing at the stuff he says. This series, called Screen Test Films, by the Times Magazine is pretty good. Check them out here.
As the writers and directors of both Harold and Kumar movies, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg take their dick jokes very seriously. And with Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay fresh out on DVD and a third flick already in the works, their commitment to crude humor has definitely paid off.
Thanks to New York City and its shoebox-sized living spaces, the entirety of my DVD collection is crammed into boring black binders. The cases have long since been recycled into smart cars or whatever the hell it is plastic gets recycled into. But not every DVD case is so easily thrown out. These cases are like little pieces of art..only more useful.
I wonder if they’re going to make a version of this that wont get out of CVS when it’s really liquored up and being asked nicely to leave?
When the Olympics was first created, you had to hang around at the arena till 4am just to catch your favorite wrestler get mauled by a lion.
There are plenty of twenty-somethings like myself walking around the world hopped up on Zoloft and dragging around emotional baggage like a family on a trip to Orlando. There are lots of possible explanations for our relatively pathetic condition, but it's easier to blame movies, and these so-called kids flicks have been keeping psychologists rolling in dough since the Reagan administration.
The fact that hot women get down with famous midgets is really sweet, but it’s also a really poignant reminder that the most surefire way on the planet to get laid is by being popular. But do a little research and the equation is much more than just super shortness + fame. Here at Screenjunkies we’re all about doing things in a highly scientific, utterly rigorous fashion. So lets travel up the ruler of stature and see what happens along the way.
In a recent column on Cinematical, which is a pretty awesome movie blog, there was a column begging movie-goers to buy the sub-par grub that pays their bills . I’m all for movie theaters not going out of business, but if they want to get between me and my pay, they’re going to have to put in a little effort first.
Ah, the coveted middle-aged female secretary gamer demographic. So hard to conquer, so fond of cake, paperback novels, and kittens.
There are plenty of unrated and director’s cut DVDs chilling out on the shelves of the local big box store. Sadly, the majority of them are just a marketing ploys trying to separate you from your rapidly-shrinking entertainment budget. But the movies listed below actually benefited from another trip to the editing room.
