REVIEW: ‘THE HURT LOCKER’

Friday, June 26 by

This week, we've covered the Transformers from about every possible angle – except their nether regions, because Bay has that covered.  But there's another film starting today that deserves far more asses in seats than Bay's bombastic sequel.  I'm talking about THE HURT LOCKER, which – if you couldn't tell from the pull quote above – Screenjunkies thinks is just about the tensest movie that's come out since NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN. 

FLOWCHART: MICHAEL BAY PICKS BREAKFAST

Friday, June 26 by

Welcome to the final day of BAYWATCH '09.  To recap, we've revisited Bay's Best Music Videos, Pitted Bay's Explosions against one another in the Bracket of Boom, ogled his "Baybes" and collected emails from his personal account.  For the last day, we're getting inside the man's head.  Strap on your safety goggles and flak jackets. By Ian Sobel

NETWORKS TO AIR MICHAEL JACKSON SPECIALS

Friday, June 26 by

As evidenced by the lazily-Photoshopped image above, The King of Pop is no longer with us. Expect this news to take over the airwaves for the next few days as the networks scramble to bring their tributes to the screen. Despite his controversial life and the fact that he often dressed like a Batman villian, we here at Screen Junkies would like to seperate the art from the artist. His talents and legend cannot be denied and will live on through his amazing music.We wanted to play this post out with Thriller, his most cinematic and memorable video, but the embedding is disabled by request. So… here's the Indian version. Trust us, you'll hardly notice the difference. Less bummerific morning news…Michael Bay doesn't drive to work, he skydives to work.

MICHAEL BAY EXPLOSION TOURNEY ROUND 3

Thursday, June 25 by

Well lookee what we got here, boys!  Last round, the asteroid rocked the The Rock's missile and the Giant F**king Robot 'splodin' the bus beat out the combustible mansion. Even Michael Bay, with his infinite wisdom and soothsaying powers, told us in a conversation that didn’t really happen that he was literally BLOWN AWAY by the results. Now we're down to the Big Boom and the tension is so palpable you could masticate it like a big ol' bag of Big League Chew.  THE FINAL MATCHUP

WEINSTEIN TALKS “BASTERDS” EDITS

Thursday, June 25 by

Looks like reports of Harvey Weinstein demanding Quentin Tarantino cut 40 minutes out of Inglorious Basterds were premature. GQ caught up with Harvey at a cocaine buffet and he had this to say:"Come on, there's sh*t on that cutting-room floor that'll blow your brains out. I was telling Quentin the opposite—'You should put that sh*t back in the movie… I'm praying he puts that sh*t back in, ‘cause it's un-f*cking-believably great."So, there you have it. The sh*t stays in the picture.Check this other sh*t out!Watchmen Director's Cut is headed to select theaters. (Collider)The Oscars are bigger and longer now too.

TRAILER FOR ‘THE BOX’ WITH CAMERON DIAZ & JAMES MARSDEN

Wednesday, June 24 by

THE BOX Trailer – Watch more Funny Videos Above is the new trailer for the not-so-new-but-unreleased The Box, starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden as a young, innocent couple from The South and Frank Langella as a devilish man who presents the couple with a big red button that, when pressed, kills a random stranger.  Why, pray tell, would one want to push a button that kills someone?  Well because the pusher is rewarded with an attaché case full of money.  This is either the dumbest idea for a horror movie or the best Staples commercial in the history of the brand.

‘TRANSFORMERS 2′ REVIEW

Wednesday, June 24 by

By Spencer Vickers I am 80% convinced that Michael Bay did not give a sweet sh*t about the first hour and twenty minutes of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.  What occupies that part of the highly anticipated summer flick is about as dumbed down as you would expect from a film that is brought to you by a toy company (I would like to point out that my previous comment was by no means meant as an attack on Hasbro, for without them my childhood would have been severely depressing).  At points the film even borders on offensive (and not the good kind of offensive).
