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:
It’s really hard to come up with new ideas. But it’s not hard to take two old ideas, put them in your creative supercollider, and SMASH them together just shy of the speed of light. They have this machine a mile beneath the earth in Burbank. That’s exactly how they came up with Outlander.
When I used to think about how people came up with ideas for movies, I had an image of a bunch of people sitting in a room, eating Chinese food and drinking coffee until all hours of the night, when a wave of genius washed across the room, bringing to live a brilliant cinematic idea.
An eccentric billionaire builds a robotic suit that lets him kick all kinds of terrorist ass. Iron Man was the biggest surprise of the summer, making enough money for Robert Downey Jr. to build himself a real robot suit and fly arond in it instead of the normal limo. It helped restore people's faith in the Marvel movie machine after the tragedy that was Spiderman 3.
The sneaky little devils at Access Hollywood got their hands on a deleted scene from the upcoming Iron Man DVD. It shows Tony Stark throwing a party at one of his mansions in India Dubai to cover up the fact that he had to stop and refuel his suit on his flight from America to the USA.
Do you remember in Seinfeld how George and Jerry would always find one little reason to not like whatever girl they were dating? Either man hands, or close talker, or naked all the time– whatever the character trait was, it would totally distract them from the fact that there was a beautiful woman right in front of them.
My aunt sat me down when I was a kid and showed me From Russia With Love. Ever since then, I have been a sucker for a spy flick. Even ones that would not make the list of Most Radical Films (Sneakers, Spy Games, The Saint) entertain the shit out of me.
Here’s the synopsis from IMDB: A CIA operative is sent to Jordan to track a high-ranking terrorist. The spy is aided by the head of Jordan's covert operations in an uneasy alliance that leads to cultural and moral clashed between the men.
I will express my distaste for the Harry Potter franchise to anyone willing to listen (and often to those who don't want to listen at all), so I take a little joy in knowing that all those cape-clad fanboys and girls are going to have to wait until July 17th 2009 for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It was supposed to drop this November.
