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.
20 years after he gets kicked out of his hair metal band, a drummer named Fish tries to take his nephew's band of high school kids to the top of the music world. It's a role custom made for Jack Black, but he was too busy making Tropic Thunder, so they gave it to Dwight from The Office.Director: Peter Cattaneo
Nicolas Cage's last venture into the land of comic movies was the epicly sucky Ghost Rider, so excuse me if I'm not super excited about the upcoming, Kick-Ass. It's the story of a high school kid who turns himself into some kind of super hero. His power seems to be the ability to pick the worst super hero name of all time.
TV chefs are pretty low on the celebrity food chain. They're just above Olympic athletes and just below those talking mannequins on The Hills. I've never quite found a way to properly articulate my feelings about the Food Network, but this guy on last night's episode of The Gong Show, nailed it.
As if Harry Potter hadn't pissed me off enough already with his crappy movies and chubby, cape-wearing fans, now he's making us all wait an extra week for the new James Bond flick.
Rather than reviewing Jason Statham's latest explosion fest in my own voice, I'm going to use the voice of the frat dude that was sitting behind me at the midnight showing I attended last night. Please note that caps lock is used to emphasize both the frat guy's excitement and the movie's resemblance to a fun, 89-minute Mountain Dew commercial.
These clips are making me giggle like a little bitch. I guess it's just right up my alleyway of awkward juvenile humor done through low rent animation. Some of the best shows have done just that. More videos after the mouse clicking.
If you're a young guy, babies are scary enough in the first place, but when they're evil and bloodthirsty, it almost makes you want to superglue your vas deferens shut. This is the trailer for a remake of a 1974 movie about an evil baby that eats people. The trailer itself is almost 4-minutes long and has a solid amount of gore. In fact, after the trailer you will not need to see the movie.
We've all heard this tired story before. From IMDB:A baby born to a human couple turns out to be a mutant monster with an appetite to kill when scared.This is a remake of the 1974 classic. Hot Chicks To Watch For: Bijou PhillipsRating: R
Last night I saw Vicky Christina Barcelona with my girlfriend. It is a movie about how confused women go to Europe and are lured into unhygienic relationships with sensitive artist-types, and then end up either 1) cheating on their fiance, or 2) having a three-way.
I feel bad for Mike Judge after what happened to Idiocracy. The studios screwed the movie up and then didn't bother releasing in theaters to anyone who wanted to see it. Maybe he'll get some better treatment for Extract, which starts shooting next Monday.
The last time I checked, Ridley Scott was going to direct the big screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian. But when I looked at the IMDB page this morning, it had Todd Field’s name in the director spot. This is good, because he’s probably way more capable of retaining the gritty feel that the movie needs to be true to the book.
I'm not a devoted Veronica Mars fan like a lot of people gushing over this news seem to be. But it wasn't a bad show, and if the rumors are true that the series is going to get a full-length movie then I'll certainly see it.
Holy pre teen acne. I had no idea that Fred Durst was directing a family movie. It’s rated PG and has ICE CUBE IN IT. It’s rated PG. It’s called The Longshots. It’s rated PG. Fred Durst was in Limp Bizkit. I hated Limp Bizkit.
At a certain age it must just feel creepy to look at hot young girls in horror movies. Luckily, the editorial staff at Screenjunkies are nowhere near that age. And we never will be. Honestly, I don't even know what that age is.
No, it's not The Fast and the Furious or 2 Fast 2 Furious. It's just Fast and Furious. You know, kind of like what they did when they named the last Rambo movie Rambo. But I can see how you would get confused.
In the interest of full disclosure, I should tell tell you that I think The Fast and the Furious is an extremely fun and easy to watch movie. No, it's not Bullitt, but it's not Biker Boyz, either. That said, I'm still not sure how to feel about Vin Diesel's plan to direct a 20-minute sequel connecting the first and the fourth installments of the franchise.
How many distraught, letter-writing Harry Potter fans does it take to change a light-bulb? None, because letters from pathetic fanboys (and girls) don't change anything.
Oliver Stone is the Hollywood equivalent to the messageboard troll. All he ever wants to talk about is the super-controversial stuff that will either make people really interested or incredibly mad. So, how does one follow up Wold Trade Center? With a movie about the president people love to hate.
I always get Guillermo Del Toro and Peter Jackson mixed up when I see pictures of them. I’m sorry, all portly effects driven fantasy directors with beards look exactly the same to me. I think maybe the producers at New Line did the exact same thing when they signed Guillermo up to direct the forthcoming Hobbit movie.
I know W. is going to be a big deal when it comes out, you know, because of all the terrible decision making and such, but if you're the kind of person that just really doesn't give a crap about politics like me, this movie might not be for you. That's not to say that it won't be really good, but I'd rather watch Michael Bay's W., than Oliver Stone's. Think about it.
De Niro and Pacino are the shit. Although it’s been rare, its pretty dope when they’re starring together. This looks like a pretty good flick, and the trailer has enough F-bomb filled tough talk from De Niro to put a smile on my face. The movie also features 50-Cent. I’m guessing he’ll get nominated for his sixth Oscar.
I re-watched Heat two months ago and was reminded what a rad movie it is. A big part of its radness is because Pacino and De Niro are awesome. So add 50-Cent and Mark Wahlberg's brother and you've got movie gold. Maybe. IMDB says:
With No Country For Old Men already making rounds on some "best movies ever" lists and Burn After Reading almost ready to take to the big screen, the Coen brothers have given up a little info about the cast of their upcoming flick, A Serious Man.
We refuse to put any info about this movie. If you would like to write a synopsis, leave a comment. Love, Screenjunkies.
Screenjunkies needs to set the record straight. We are just not Star Wars fans. We just don’t care. We understand that George Lucas is a visionary filmmaker and has had a huge impact on modern cinema (both good and bad).
His name doesn't have the same kind of mainstream recognition that guys like George Carlin and Richard Pryor had, but most stand-up comedy fans still consider Bill Hicks to be one of the best. Russel Crowe is reportedly in talks to play Hicks in a movie about his life, which ended after a short bout with pancreatic cancer in 1994.
I always thought Warner Bros. might have stolen their marketing campaign for the Joker from a Japanese kid show, and now I'm sure of it. No one will ever have to ask these little girls "Why so serious?" And hey, it's kind of a slow news day, so be thankful I didn't post a review of that crappy new Star Wars movie.
In the future, Vikings will have to fight Aliens to secure the peace of all mankind on another planet that is from the past. Ok, I made that up. Here's the actual premise from IMDB:
