I went to see Righteous Kill last night and ended up running out halfway through with a mouth full of vomit. Not because it was bad, but because apparently I have the stomach plague. So, since I'm here on the internet instead of outside on a beautiful day, I'd like to share with you this clip of Bobby D and Al Pacino showing their funny sides. (Fast forward to 5:45)
I'm really glad that all of the red tape and political garbage surrounding Kevin Smith's upcoming flick haven't ruined his sense of humor. As a replacement for the first poster (pictured after the break), which the MPAA deemed too scandalous, Kev has released a masterpiece of stick figure-driven snark. See both posters after the break.
Damn Clive Owen is rad. I’m such a fan it makes me think I’m a little bit gay. Children Of Men is still one of my favorite movies of all time. Add Clive to my normal love of anything having to do with espionage and it looks like we have a serious winner. This one drops Feb 2009.
Spike Jones is one of my heroes. He’s become a cultural icon by doing exactly the unique projects that he wants to do. I can watch any of the music videos he did with Michel Gondry over and over. And like Gondry he looks at things through the eyes of a child. This is why Where The Wild Things Are should be a great film.
I try so hard not to fall into the Transformers 2 hype, but every time one of these little bits of info slip out, I go spiraling back to my childhood, which I spent sitting on a rug turning robots into cars and then back into robots.
I remember in English class how they use to tell us that we had to get through at least a few chapters of a book before we were allowed to decide that it was not worth reading. I made it exactly 4 minutes into Fox’s Do Not Disturb before hurling my TV at a Hurricane Orphan.
Don't you just hate when Darth Vader acts like a jerk? In other news, I got the DVD of Salo from Netflix the other day and put it on last night. I now understand why it was so hard to get here in the US for so long. This is easily one of the most fucked up movies I have ever seen. I mean, it's no Must Love Dogs, but it's still pretty bad.
I don't want to give away any spoilers for 28 Weeks Later since it hasn't been on DVD for all that long, but the ending certainly seemed like a fine way to cap the series. According to some comments made by Danny Boyle, though, the rage virus might continue raging for another movie.
Sometimes we forego being a respectable movie and TV site in favor of much more entertaining pursuits such as photoshopping boobs on movie posters. That means that sometimes the industry news falls through the cracks. Here are some of the stories from this week.
The jury is still out on whether or not Rumer Willis is actually hot (there are some more photos after the break to help you decide), but there is no question she will star in a remake of the 1983 horror flick, The House on Sorority Row. Honestly, it probably won't be very good, but at least it will be rated R.
It's Wednesday, and you know what that means. We're only two days away from the release of the new Meg Ryan chick flick, The Women! I would rather star in a remake of 2 girls, 1 cup than watch that. Even if I was playing the cup. Here are some links to help get that image out of your head. Not the 2 girls, 1 cup images, I know you're fine with those, but the Meg Ryan images. Yikes.
You remember the Borat movie, right? Of course you do. It's the movie that had everyone saying, "Niiiice," every two seconds. Well, the driving instructor and two of the etiquette coaches from the movie sued Sacha Baron Cohen for making them look stupid in front of the whole world. When a New York judge threw the case out, he made them look even dumber. Great success!
Right now, in Europe, there is a machine called the Large Hadron Collider, which many people believe has the potential to destroy the earth by sucking it into a black hole. This show is just slightly worse than that.
When Duke Nukem 3D was fresh, it won my little heart with its crude jokes and animated ultra-violence. Unfortunately, that was 12 years ago, and in that time I have completely lost interest and so has just about everyone else I know. But, the Duke has two games coming out soon and Hollywood isn't exactly busting with new ideas, so Max Payne producer, Scott Faye is giving flat top a shot at the big screen.
Evil Dead The Musical is not a new thing. It’s been a long running show way-off-Broadway. Like Toronto way-off-Broadway. My first response when I read about adapting this into a movie was that it would be lame. But I guess there’s always a possibility that they could do something sort of novel with it.
We are always impressed when people have the focus to pull off stuff like this. It just takes a LOT of time.
This weekend was one of the worst weekends in box office history, which could mean one of several things. Either you're all:A) Too busy leading glorious lives and enjoying every moment to its fullest.B) Too broke because you spent all of your money on Dark Knight tickets and gas.C) Acutally, it was probably B so there will be no more choices.
No, not that kind of DP. I'm talking about director of photography, Larry Fong. This dude definitely has one of the tougher jobs around Hollywood at the moment. Lots of people considered Watchmen "unfilmable." I'm just hoping the movie doesn't turn out "unwatchable." But, I still have high hopes, even if it does get pushed back to 2010 by lawsuits.
Want to watch a three hour long inside joke between annoying celebrities and 14 year old girls? Neither did I, but I have a duty and if that means having to watch Russell Brand bomb for longer than any comedian in history, then so be it. Russell who?
It’s a big weekend for HBO, Nick Cage, and Asian kids who like basketball.In Theatres. Bangkok Dangerous. We have Nick Cage. Sex trafficking. Thailand. Guns. What more do you need?
Maybe I'm not the sentimental type or maybe I just don't share the unending, fiery love for Superman that some people seem to have. Or maybe I just see how absolutely ridiculous it is for a legitimate charity to try and guilt people into donating money that will be put toward saving the house in which Superman was invented. Sorry Ronald McDonald, your house full of sick kids and their families doesn't have enough comic book history to get my money. [Warning: Ranting ahead]
I’ve been writing recaps of the show Buzzin’ for the past month. Then one week it just didn’t show up on The MTV. The last episode that aired didn’t seem like any sort of finale. I called the Hollywood police to file a missing show report, but they didn’t seem to understand what I meant.
We're not very political here at Screenjunkies.com. The most fired up I've ever been about politics was when the boring-ass State of the Union address ran long and pushed back a brand new episode of 30 Rock.
When I know actors for one specific act or character, I don't like when they go outside of that. It's like when I saw Rodney Dangerfield as a child molesting wife beater in Natural Born Killers and a tiny bit of te magic went out of Caddyshack.
It has made $500 million and has had praise heaped onto it from nerds, film buffs and just about anyone else with eyeballs. But I went out on a mission to find someone who still hadn't seen it. I found that man. He opted to stay anonymous, but gave me the exclusive interview. [Spoilers ahead]
Rumors have abounded concerning the possible involvement of Judd Apatow in the third installment of the Ghostbusters franchise. According to Dan Aykroyd the script is already being written.
Hey, guys! Want to watch a Nike commercial? No, wait, I mean a Walmart commercial….no, wait. It's a Transformers 2 featurette! I know, that's a super-cheesy start to a post, but I think it perfectly matches the tone of this "behind the scenes" clip that was released yesterday. If you like hearing Michael Bay sound like a jackass, then get ready to be thrilled.
Wow, the new 90210 is really bad. I mean REALLY bad. It does one of the things that bothers me the most about bad ‘funny’ writing: it makes the assumption that a bunch of little jokes are going to add up to make something that’s funny as a whole. Furthermore, everything they do is borrowed from another show. You just can’t pick and chose from other titles and end up with a good product.
Hey, here's a Star Wars parody to brighten up your afternoon. It's better than all three Rush Hours combined. Oh, and if you're planning out your TV-watching schedule tonight, you should put FX's Son's of Anarchy on your short list. I watched the first episode and it's extremely fun.
I hope little Shia's terrible CG performance in the last Indiana Jones movie hasn't soured you too badly on vine swinging, because you're going to have a whole movie full of Tarzan to deal with.
