7 DARK MOMENTS IN POPCORN FLICKS

Monday, May 18 by

Sometimes seeing the wrong movie at too young an age can really stick with you.  Say you saw Child's Play or Nightmare on Elm Street before age twelve.  You might have had a hard time getting to sleep or looking at your stuffed animals in the same way after. But what about the movies you're supposed to see, the general interest flicks constantly rerunning on cable that Mom and Dad wouldn't bat at an eye at if they walked by and saw you watching?  Often, it is only later that the truly disturbing stuff really shows its face. Sure, it's scary in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure when Large Marge's eyes jump out of their sockets, but what about the movies we saw as kids that are filled with the real?  I’m talking about stuff like abortion, suicide, etc. – the kinds of things that can actually happen, things that are so serious they went over your head at the time. Or didn't. Screenjunkies presents… 7 Dark Moments in Popcorn Flicks…

TARANTINO & MORRICONE TEAM UP FOR ‘INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS’

Friday, May 15 by

Head over to The Playlist to read the track listing for Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds soundtrack.  It's got more Morricone music than a Spaghetti Western marathon.  BUT!  None of the Oscar-winner's tracks were recorded for Basterds. Sounds like Quentin's pulling another Kill Bill with this record and finding places to fit classical Morricone cues into a brand new film.  Worked well enough for me the last time around; I've still got the Kill Bill soundtracks in heavy rotation.  Except for the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique Sound effects.  Those don't go over too well at house parties. Let's see… what else?  Oh yeah:Patricia Silveira Is A Hottie (SickPigs)Kevin Smith And The Bong Of Tears (FilmDrunk)Rachel Nichols Is Sexy (Manofest)Cowabunga!

‘THE BROTHERS BLOOM’ REVIEW

Friday, May 15 by

I loved Rian Johnson's first film, Brick* – the neo-hard boiled detective story set amongst high school social circles.  It was the one with a bespectacled Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the anachronistic dialogue and the fantastic score by Johnson's brother.  I saw it three times in the theaters.  Even bought it on DVD.  But as I sat down for my screening of Rian Johnson's followup, The Brothers Bloom, a wave of doubt washed over me.  No way he can do it again, I thought.  Besides, the trailers made it seem like a hodgepodge of styles culled from Johnson's contemporaries.  It was Hudson Hawk through the off-kilter lens of Wes Anderson.  Not necessarily a bad thing (I'm one of the few with fond memories of Hawk), but it wasn't promising to be a revelation like Brick…

15-MINUTES BEHIND THE SCENES OF DISNEY-PIXAR’S ‘UP’

Friday, May 15 by

The IESB has posted three behind-the-scenes clips from Disney-Pixar's Up.  In total, it's 15 minutes of straight up, fly-on-the-wall making-of goodness, with none of the gloss one might expect from a Disney promo. Yeah that's right.  It's 15-minutes of watching a dude sitting in front of a computer while it renders seven frames of the movie.  There's also this part where Pete Docter orders a cheese sandwich from the cafeteria.I kid, I kid.  It's pretty cool.  Watch the other clips after the jump.

SOUTHLAND RECAP: “WESTSIDE”

Friday, May 15 by

Re-cap:This episode begins in the same way that all Southland episodes to date have begun, which is to say that it begins in the middle of what’s going on.  Officer Sherman is lying in bed with his arm wrapped around a woman.  Our narrator cuts in to inform us that it is a violation of policy for an officer to get involved with a victim.  Sherman knows this, but does it anyway.  We learn quickly how the girl ended up being a victim, and gradually how she ended up in Sherman’s bed…

Dancing With the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff

Friday, May 15 by

                 Today's Dancing girl is Ukrainian Karina Smirnoff, who joined "Dancing with the Stars" in Season 3, and has… stayed on the show ever since. (If you've been following this series of galleries, you may have picked up on a trend.)  The closest Karina ever came to winning was in her inaugural season, during which she partnered with Greg Louganis impersonator Mario Lopez.   This season, she'd been cutting a rug with Apple founder Steve Wozniak, but was sadly eliminated  in the fourth round when she got lost in the rug that is Wozniak's beard. Pointless Quote: "I just kept smiling, but it hurt."Check out the photos of Karina after the jump, or these other Dancing with the Stars Chicks: Cheryl Burke, Julianna Hough, Kym Johnson

MONICA BELLUCCI JOINS SORCERER’S APPRENTICE

Friday, May 15 by

Renowned boner-causer Monica Bellucci has just joined the cast of Sorcerer's Apprentice. Variety reports that she will play the part of Nicolas Cage's long-lost love in the film. Upon hearing this news, Cage let out an involuntary "SCHWIIIINNNGGGG!!!", before shuffling out of the room using his script to hide the bulge in his khakis.Here are some more eye-popping morning headlines.Stan Bush re-records 'The Touch' for Transformers 2 soundtrack. Outcome is hilarious. (/Film) John Ratzenberger drives the ladies INSANE. (Cinema Blend) Johnny Depp might play Sinatra. Somewhere Joe Piscopo weeps. (Cinematical) America, meet The Fatchelor.

Thursday, May 14 by

The Road Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers Check out this trailer for Dimension's post-apocalyptic roadtrip comedy, The Road, starring Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron.  It's all about Viggo trying to win back the girl he mistakenly dumped after junior prom, and… awww heck.  I just can't lie like that.  It's an adaptation of The Road by Cormac "No Country For Old Men" McCarthy, who isn't exactly known for laughs.  Check it out, and then post your comments after the jump, where you'll also find a good spoof of Cormac McCarthy starring actor Luiggi DeBiasse, whose Anton Chigurrh is pretty amazing.

LOST Parody #10 – Twilight, Season 2 Finale (S2, E5) – Watch Movie TrailersIf you couldn't get enough of the "Lost" season finale, and the mind-blowing cliffhanger didn't blow your mind all over your face, here's a new "Lost" parody video from the Fine Brothers, featuring time traveling action figures, magically materializing guns and even more magically materializing beards (plus cameos from action figures based on what seems like every single blockbuster film from the past few years). Watching this, I still can't get over how detailed the "Lost" action figures are.  As my grandfather would say, "The technology… they just can do anything these days."  Yes, grandpa, they can.  But can the wizards at Industrial Light and Magic run a lathe?Michel Gondry Close To A Grammy (FilmDrunk)He-Man Is A Perv (Manofest)Cliffhanger Resurrected (Pajiba)Aerin Is Spankin Hot (GorillaMask)This Congressmans Kid Won't Shut Up (IAmBored)The Six Flags Guys Sucks (Cracked)Disneys Re-Imagined Christmas Carol Poster (Filmofilia)Adorable Baby Pigs Listening to Amy Winehouse (SickPigs)The Very Best Of Kenny Powers (HolyTaco)The NFL's Cheerleader Stimulus Package (BustedCoverage)Louise Redknapp Is Hot And Classy (Uncoached)Crappy Nintento Drawings Are Hilarious (Unreality)Gilliams Don Quixote is Back (ThePlaylist)

KEVIN EASTMAN TALKS NINJA TURTLES

Thursday, May 14 by

In 1984, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird had a little idea for a comic book, pooled some money together to print a limited run, and inadvertently jump started a seismic shift in entertainment.  I'm speaking, of course, about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who are set to once more take pop culture by storm in this, their 25th Anniversary year.  We've gotten the announcement that a new live-action feature is in the works for a 2011 release.  And just this week, Lionsgate released a brand new four-DVD collector's set of the original TMNT animated series' Season 7.  (Each box comes with a cool miniature reproduction of an original Turtle action figure, too.)
