And now to get a little serious. This is a pretty dope trailer. Studios take a big risk on putting out movies that can be put in the Art House category. They take even bigger risks by trying to promote them with trailers that don’t have any words or music. This one works, and raises enough suspicion to get me interested in seeing the film.
I read Herman Melville's classic story of aquatic revenge back when I was in high school. And by "read" I mean I had a comic book version like the one from Major League that I used to get the basic idea and then just faked my way through class.
Town puts down grunge and lattes only to get tear gassed by cops.
Sitting in front of the TV, watching the riots unfold in Seattle during the WTO from the 4th floor lounge of my college dorm was really when I first got the sense that there might be something amiss in the world of global capitalism. Starbucks being looted, storefronts being smashed—it turned out that there were some people that were kind of angry about the status quo.
SNL seems to be taking full advantage of all the ridiculousness that's going on as part of this presidential race. They better get it in now, though. If John McCain wins, he'll probably order all of their tongues removed. Nah, I'm just kidding. He'll probably just have them killed.
Mashups that go to the extent of overlaying dialogue with mouth movement should be celebrated. This one is a great example. Your favorite puppets hurling curse words is just an added bonus.
No one except Michael Bay and his minions even knows if Megatron is going to be in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, but if he is, it looks like he may have given up his wings for some tank treads and a huge gun. Even if these photos don't end up being accurate, they're still kind of bad-ass, especially the back side.
We have been hearing about Seth Rogen's Green Hornet movie for a while and today it got its director. The movie drops on June 25, 2010 and will have Stephen Chow at the helm and in Bruce Lee's old role as Kato. If you're not super familiar with Chow, he's the guy who has directs weird, but cool movies like Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer.
SEE THE FULL POST FOR THE RED BAND VERSION. Nothing helps a Friday afternoon go by faster than some fictional torture. Once you get past the age gate (I know, I know) you'll be treated to one of Saw's trademark traps. After watching this, I've decided that, should I find mysel in a trap like this, I'm just going to sit there and let it kill me.
When J.J. Abrams was asked if the Shat was going to have a part in the upcoming Star Trek reboot, he claimed that Bill wasn’t interested in doing a cameo….
I'm not a big Chris Cornell fan, but I thought the song he did for Casino Royale really fit the movie. It sounded epic and polished like James Bond himself. This new Quantum of Solace track from Jack White and Alicia Keys, however, sounds kind of like they slapped it together in one of their 30-car garages.
As usual, things happen that we don’t have the time to slander. Here’s today’s list. It involves a Disney movie for The Rock, Megan Fox, a stolen childhood memory, Playboy playmates, and even more gratuitous T&A.
I love movies that Charlie Kaufman has written. They’re weird, complex, and highly entertaining. This is the trailer for his directorial debut. It’s supposedly very dark and described by some as a horror film. Official Synopsis after the jump.
Update: Reports are now saying that Microsoft hasn't canceled its series of nonsensical commercials, just put them on the back burner for a while. I, for one, am relieved.
I have a thing for French girls. I’ll take them over a tanned sorority sister in a tube top any day of the week. They have style and know how to look naturally sexy. Seems like Tarantino agrees with me and has added a few new beauties to his cast. Here are some pictures.
In case you have a super hot date tonight and you're not going to be around to catch the season premiere of Knight Rider, Hulu has the whole thing just for you. And you don't have to have a date if you want to watch it, just a boss that won't mind you sitting through a 42-minute TV show during office hours. If you work for the government, you should be fine.
Sexually confused virgin jailbait Lebanese girl fingerbang raped by redneck in Houston suburbia.
There’s a whole genre of movies that treat the later days of childhood as nothing but an abrupt movement into a real world where adults are violent perverts or self-serving assholes. They magnify the awkwardness of growing up into something that makes you unable to breathe.
I have no idea why this video even exists other than to promote Mean magazine, but as a fan of Ben Kinsgley and a super-fan of Minor Threat, it definitely made me confused and even a little embarrassed. He's one of the world's most respected actors, couldn't he have at least learned the lyrics to the song?
I'm getting really excited about Zack and Miri Make a Porno. These photos don't really reveal much new information, but all the smiling suggest that it's going to be one of the feel good Kevin Smith movies that we love him for. Maybe this movie will inspire him to go back and rework some of his crappier movies.
We still have a few more weeks before 30 Rock makes its triumphant return (apparently Tina Fey was busy working on her Sarah Palin impression).
We're really closing in on the return of The Office, but until then I offer you this compilation of ever utterance of the phrase, "That's what she said," ever to be heard on the show. It obviously took someone a lot of time to download, watch and then edit these together. The least we could do is watch.
He’s known as one of the most unstable asshole directors out there, but today two of his actors from the set of Nailed are standing up for him. Here’s a little history of the conflict and some background on the ‘mercurial’ David O' himself.
I like Andy Samdberg. I even thought Hot Rod was kind of funny, but I don't get the hype people are giving this "Space Olympics" video. It seems kind of cheesy that SNL would save up all of their Olympics jokes and just use them on the season premiere even though they're a month too late. I can't wait until next February when they bust out their World Series jokes.
It takes a lot to make me feel uneasy. But one surefire way is to curse around children. An even better way is to curse directly at them. This trailer has plenty of that. It also looks like it has some real potential.
I have a hard enough time getting anything done thanks to the enormous amount of entertainment that's constantly available. Now, thanks to every TV show ever coming to DVD, it's getting even harder to squeeze work between episodes. But, there isn't a ton of great stuff out this week, so don't go canceling those plans just yet. Here's the best of the pack.
I think a lot of dudes don’t like Ben Affleck because he’s so successful. He won an Oscar for co-writing Good Will Hunting, has starred in some blockbusters (and some flops), and did a good job with his directorial debut in Gone Baby Gone. Now he’s back at making us feel unsuccessful by writing and directing a new Warner Brothers flick.
You would think four seasons of a wildly popular reality show and even a Behind the Music would be enough time to get Ozzy's story out there, but Jack and Sharon are reportedly teaming up to release a movie about the Oz Man's life in honor of his 60th birthday. As a fan, I think the movie could be good, but as a guy who hates hearing people's Ozzy impressions, I'm a little tentative.
It’s really hard to make a movie where a child star is defiled. So hard it took filmmaker Deborah Kampmeier many years to finally get a release for her Southern Gothic tale Hounddog. Amid boos at press screenings and horrible reviews, the movie hits a few theatres Sept. 19. Here’s a little more info about the controversy surrounding the project.
It's Monday afternoon, so that means it's time for our weekly trailer mashup. This one is amazing, and really shows what a little music, voice over, and re-cutting can do to change the entire feel of a movie. I’ll never look at Jaws the same. Feel free to send us your favorite mashups to firstname.lastname@example.org.
