I like movies where the good guys win, but in the end of this movie, Hitler wins. That's a bummer. Tom Cruise plays Claus von Stauffenberg, a German officer who plotted to off the fuehrer. Think of it as Mission: Impossible 4: Kill Hitler. Or don't. We would rather leave that job to Wolfenstein. Studio: United Artists
The inner-workings of Tom Cruise are baffling. His hilarious role in Tropic Thunder probably would have been enough to get people to stop making fun of his weirdness for a while. So what's the next logical step? Dress up like a nazi for a movie! Nothing says, "Hey, I'm cool and normal" like bringing up memories of the Holocaust for a blockbuster.
Watching people go on crazy, obscenity-filled rants is one of my favorite pastimes. While Bob Saget's is probably just a viral marketing ploy for his upcoming roast, it's still pretty funny. He takes on a director, an old lady and a bird, all of whom deserve a good tongue lashing if you ask me. The Lily Tomlin and David O.
First off you need to know this: I lost my shit laughing at Tropic Thunder AND my mind was blown by the action. It is not easy to blend the two genres. But Ben Stiller and crew pulled it off in a big way.
Coming soon to a retard near you.
There have been some protests about the usage of the word retard in Tropic Thunder. Apparently retard advocates are not too pleased about Robert Downey-Syndrome Jr's usage of the word retard in the Movie.
Horay for remakes of Asian horror films! This American version of a South Korean flick is based on the premise that pissed off ghosts use mirrors as a doorway into the living world. They use that doorway to come in and mess everything up. Honestly, that plot sounds about as tired as Brett Favre, but you never know. At least it has Amy Smart.
CLIP IS VERY GORY AND HAS BAD LANGUAGE SO DON'T WATCH IF YOU'RE AT WORK OR CHILLING OUT AT A DAYCARE OR SOMETHING. I know, it seems kind of silly to watch the first three minutes of Mirrors, when you can just go back and watch the entire South Korean version, Into the Mirror, which has been out for five years now.
According to his website:
And even though this one is not exactly the newest new news, its worth watching, because we could all stand to just relax a little.Check out the viral website for Gentleman Broncos, due out in 2009.
Kevin James stars in a gritty crime drama full of action, romance and important social commentary. Nah, just kidding. It's a slapstick comedy! Paul Blart is shy, chubby mall security guard who has to take on the element of organized crime that has taken over his precious shopping center.
I used to be a big fan of professional skateboarder, Mike Vallely back when he rode for Black Label. He used to skate like a maniac and fight people all the time. I can respect that. Then he grew his hair long, switched sponsors, started a band that kind of sucks and now he's doing viral marketing videos for the new Kevin James movie, Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
“The Rebellion Against All There Is…Including Making Good Movies.”
Did you see Wild Hogs? Yeah, me neither. To be fair, it was a movie for men and women aged 40 plus. Hell Ride is basically the same movie. Except that there is LOTS of nudity and violence. And everybody dies. Ok, maybe that’s a bad comparison.
Over the weekend I turned on the Olympics from time to time, just to see what was going on and it seemed like all they wanted to show me was badminton. To me, that sport is about one notch above Slip N' Slide races, but the Chinese sure do seem to take it seriously.
The original version of this flick came out way back in 1951, which, in Hollywood's eyes, makes it way overdue for a remake. The plot has Keanu Reeves playing an alien messenger that has come to tell us earthlings that we're about to have our intestines handed to us by some unfriendly space-types.
Thanks to crap like Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds, I've learned my lesson about getting excited for remakes of classic sci-fi. I wasn't overly excited by the trailer and now these images have me even less excited. The big attack marble and the killer fog just aren't doing it for me.
The Coen brothers are still probably coming down from the cinematic victory they scored with No Country for Old Men, and a film with both Brad Pitt and George Clooney seems like a pretty good way to do so. The plot revolves around some misplaced government files and process of retrieving them. It sounds serious, but the trailers suggest that it's more of a comedy than anything else.
I bet it's awesome hanging out with Brad Pitt and George Clooney. You could fly around in helicopters, looking for beutiful women or just buy sports cars and drive them as fast as possible through crowded streets. Then when you get pulled over you just say, "You wouldn't give a ticket to George Clooney, would you?" Then the cop would let you fire his gun in the air, just for fun.
Full disclosure: I have never smoked weed in my 26 years of life. That said, I was a little worried there would be some weed-oriented nuance in Pineapple Express I wouldn't get. Then I remembered that potheads think Scooby Doo is hilarious and my fears went away.
"Set during "The Genpei Wars" at the end of the 1100s, the Minamoto and Taira gangs face off in a town named Yuda, while a deadly gunman (Ito Hideaki) comes to the aid of the townsfolk."
Crave Online had some shots of Sukiyaki Western Django up today. As we haven’t done anything on the movie yet, I thought this would be a good time for a little background for inquiring Junkies.
In high school there was always one teacher with a good idea that would immediately be stolen by all the others. I think that a lot of them just figured that the students were too dumb to pick up on the pattern. Because they were. This led to lot of repetitive stuff.
RUGBY! A sport for men. Australian Men. Comming Soon…
Death Race is basically Mad Max meets Battle Royale meets The Island meets Death Race 2000 meets The Shawshank Redemption. But with the dude from the Transporter. Who is also in Cranked. Add that together and its definitely worth watching.
I've been holding off posting about the casting news for Quintin Tarantino's 2009 WWII epic for a couple of days because no one could actually get the story straight. But now it seems like the dust has settled a little and a few actors are left holding machine guns.
When Roger Corman’s Death Race 2000 came out in 1975 it spooked a lot of people. If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a race in the future (now the past) where the contestants got points for running down pedestrians. The tagline was “In The Year 2000 Hit And Run Driving Is No Longer A Felony.
By now we all know that Heather Ledger did the best thing any human being has ever done in the history of the world when he played the Joker. (Just because he was really good doesn't mean I can't be a sarcastic jerk about it). But these concept images that were used before the movie started shooting look even creepier than the actual Joker.
Quentin Tarantino has been working on the script for his World War II movie since way back in 2001. It's finally, apparently, ready for mass consumption, which could really mean anything when it comes to that crazy man. There are differing accounts as to what the story is actually about, but there's a good chance it's going to be show like a western and focus around some very burly men (QT not-included in the "burly" part) making their way through WWII. If nothing else, there will no doubt be a lot of swearing and violence. Score. Studio: The Weinstein Company Rating: TBA Release Date: 2009 TBA
More to come.
