I like Mark Wahlberg because he was such a badass in The Departed. Judging by this trailer, it looks like he's going to be even more of a badass in Max Payne.
Since every hacky movie writer in the world had to go comparing the duo from Pineapple Express to them, Cheech and Chong are back and trying to squeeze some pesos out of the deal by going on myspace. Apparently, part of their plan was to take some of the worst photos of all time. I can just hear the photog now telling them to act as much like gay, Mexican mummies as possible.
It’s always good fun when an actor has a moment of clarity and realizes that sometimes the movie world that they live in is not…um…real. In this case, Samuel L. Jackson, a man known for chaining Christina Ricci to a space heater while playing electric guitar in a power outage is calling out Lakeview Terrace for its lack of full frontal.
I know we usually post these things in the afternoon, but the obscenity-laden trailer for Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno just prematurely ejaculated onto the internet and right onto your eyeballs. In short, it's fuckin' hilarious. I added that F-bomb in there because the trailer is full of them, just like any god red band trailer should be.
It hit the wires today that there has been a little scandal surrounding The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Apparently director David Fincher does not want to pare down his cut, which is clocking in at 17 hours and 32 minutes.
Hey, you know what's not funny? The fact that it's Tuesday, but to you, it feels like a Monday. We all had a three day weekend, so there's a good chance many of us accidentally thought today was Monday, but then we corrected ourselves. We didn't feel the need to tell everyone several times and then ask, "How funny is that?" It's not funny at all.
Holy Shit. It's like Dances with Wolves meets Aliens meets Tremors. And heres a little trivia. The director, J.T. Petty, wrote the screenplay for Batman Begins. It looks like a low budge horror flick, but might be kind of good.
The only thing I know about the Dragonball franchise is that I've never liked it. Neither the video games nor the TV show have ever done anything but annoy me. That said, I was pretty sure I could completely ignore the live-action Dragonball movie that's coming out next year. These boring photos just about seal the deal for me.
My young, formative brain was totally freaked the fuck out by the original Poltergeist. It’s a genuinely creepy movie. But what’s more creepy is the supposed ‘curse’ that has followed the franchise throughout the making of all three films. Four of the actors involved in the films died over the period of six years.
I'm a sucker for these movie mash-up things. Often, they're pretty funny and, since I'm only a little better than a chimp would be at video editing, they're really impressive. Before you go complaining that the effects aren't perfect, take into consideration that this whole thing was done in a basement by one person. One creative, but very lonely person.
If you're a big fan of cheesy movie trailers, then this is probably a sad day for you. Don LaFontaine died of what is said to be complications from pneumothorax. However, if you have a really deep voice and you can say "In a world…" in a really serious way, then this might be the day you've been waiting for.
The Saw series is a controversial one, but I personally think that it's a really fun series that helped bring mainstream America back into its love affair with horrific torture. This poster for the fifth installment should stir up conversation amongst horror fans and give Alice in Chains fans a total boner.
There are plenty of reasons not to like Brett Ratner. Everything from his appearance on Entourage to his huge stockpile of incredibly shitty, but bafflingly profitable movies (X-Men 3, all of the Rush Hours) seems to scream, "I'm what makes people hate Hollywood." Well, Brett told MTV that he wants to make a Guitar Hero movie, and his proposed plot is every bit as horrific as you would think.
Sometimes, when shows get a lof hype, I'm really disappointed by them (Battlestar Galactica, I'm looking in your direction), but for six seasons, The Shield has been consistently kick-ass. This retrospective video is like a walk down memory lane, only instead of just walking straight, it stops to beat the crap out of a bunch of criminals along the way.
I keep expecting something to come along and screw up Max Payne for me. That's just the way it usually works, but there's a new trailer online this morning and it's actualy pretty awesome. There's more gun play and more Mila Kunis, both of which usually make for good watchin'.
FINALLY, a serious movie about smoking weed. I mean it’s great that we have the Seth Rogans and the Harold and Kumars to remind us that ganja is hilarious. But there is a HUGE gap of movies that give the sticky icky the dramatic treatment it deserves. Kudos to these people.
When I was a little kid and I had summer vacation, I spent most of my days wandering around the house, waiting for The Price Is Right to come on and searching for any porno my dad my have left sitting around. Apparently these little go-getters had a little more ambition because they put together a pretty impressive version of the Dark Knight trailer.
It always amazes me how excited people get about social networking sites, and then at some point just decide that they are totally lame. Like do you kids remember Friendster? Back in 2002 I was all OVER that shit. Then Myspace came along and had more hot young girls. And at some point, people just all abandoned that ship and headed to facebook.
This trailer proves that the world is running out of things. Number One: Good titles for movies. Across The Hall? Really? Come one. Number two, we have run out of good, timely trailers for our daily post. In the meantime, watch this one and tell me what you hate about it.
Just in case you didn't get enough fake, jungle action when you saw Tropic Thunder in the theater, you can go check out the full, half-hour long Rain of Madness documentary for free from the iTunes store.
You know it’s never a good thing when people try to ‘distance’ themselves from something. Like how people tried to ‘distance’ themselves from the Titanic or the Hindenburg, or how people step on landmines and get 'distanced' from their feet.
Admittedly, I'm not a huge comic nerd, but there are some titles that I'm pretty fond of. Preacher is definitely one of them, which is why it makes me kind of sad that the planned HBO series based on the comics has died a painful death before it ever had a chance to live. The good news is, that we didn't end up with some toned-down version of an epicly violent story.
I haven't given a crap about a Jim Carrey movie in quite some time and, frankly, I'd like to punch him right in the face for what he did to The Grinch, but this picture of him getting ready to lay a wet one on Ewan McGregor have been stirring up some shit.
For the most part, I hate animated movies, especially when they waste an amazingly hot chick doing voice acting for them. But, Kristen Bell has reportedly agreed to be the lead female part in Astro Boy, which is apparently a story about a creepy-looking, Japanese robot boy who flies around weirding everyone out with his enormous eyes and metal underpants. Hot pictures of Kristen to counteract the nerdiness after the break.
You know who has a weakness for hot cars and hot chicks? Dudes, that’s who. So if this trailer does not make you want to see the movie then you need to reconsider your manhood. This might help remind you what it’s all about.
When I saw the first Transporter, I didn’t think that they would ever get to a number three. At least not one that made it all the way to theatres and had the same main character. Either way, I’ll see it because I like to watch Jason Statham break stuff. It’s rad. Drops Nov. 26th.
I don’t envy my friends that have been pursuing acting as a career. It’s a tough gig. You have to make really hard decisions. Like when you finally decide to kill yourself because it didn’t work out, should you use a gun or pills? I say 20 gauge in the mouth. Its not an easy job.From IMDB:
You can lament the time wasted in your youth, your shitty attention span in elementary school, the rattail that you had when you were in middle school, the girls that you could have screwed in high school but you didn’t, the girls that you could have screwed in college but you still didn’t.
Reviews of Guy Ritchie's upcoming Brit crime flick are already sneaking out, but I'm refusing to read them. I'm convinced this movie is going to be his return to form and that it is possible to go back to being awesome, even after Madonna has been sucking the life out of you for the past few years. And I don't mean suck in the totally awesome way.
Here we are at the warm, gross dregs of the summer movie season where somewhat decent movies come to mingle with the crap, begging audiences for their money like cinematic homeless people. The Rocker is every bit as funny as Step Brothers.
