10 WORST BASKETBALL SCENES IN MOVIES

Monday, May 4 by

The NBA Playoffs are (finally) into the second round and at long last we have gotten over an unbelievably uneventful NCAA Tournament. So, needless to say, we’ve seen some good basketball lately (apart from the Utah Jazz – jab!). Why not take a look at some of Cinema’s darker basketball moments? You know the ones – super-leaping little children tomahawk-dunking on some white doofus’ face when the glass shatters at the buzzer and the crowd goes wild. Those are the moments when people realize, and movies preach, life is not all about basketball. It’s about love, friendship, hard work, and sweat. Lots and lots of sweat.   It’s all still about basketball, though. That’s why the hero gets carried off the court on people’s shoulders. No one gave a damn about anyone learning a lesson, they cared that their team won the game at the last friggin’ second! Not only that, the team showed those jerks over at Opponent High (Fighting Muskrats) that they were the better basketball players and therefore the better people. 

‘SHADOW HARE’ TO TOP BOX OFFICE IN 2013 IF YOU ARE AN EXTREME OPTIMIST, OR SHADOW HARE

Monday, May 4 by

If the studios ever run out of comic book properties to adapt, maybe they should take their creative execs on a retreat to Cincinnati for inspiration.  Check out this video of "The Shadow Hare," the Queen City's resident masked vigilante.  "Since when has Cincinnati had one great hero?" asks Shadow Hare.  I don't know.  Maybe Neil Armstrong.  Maybe Steven Spielberg.  Maybe Ulysses S. Grant.  All crime fighters in the Cincinnati area before they were famous.  Only Spielberg was captured on film, though.

MARVEL DIGITAL COMICS: REVISIT BACK ISSUES WITHOUT THE UNSIGHTLY SMUDGING

Monday, May 4 by

This past weekend, after a second screening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I came to terms with the fact that, from time to time, I have an insatiable appetite for comic books.  Maybe I just got wrapped up in Fox's full-on marketing assault this time?  Check.  Maybe it's a feeling of desperation to recapture my youth?  Oh god… check.  I got so into it, I belabored over the contents of a piece on X-Men stories that should be on film… and in doing so, I found myself needing to revisit a bunch of the classic Marvel back-issues.  One problem.  All my back issues are stowed away, carefully bagged and boarded  in my grandparents' basement back in the Midwest.  And as much as my grandfather would probably be willing to ship every single one of them to me via UPS ground – god bless him – I needed them at my fingertips, and pronto.And then I discovered Marvel Digital Comics, which was an experience I can only imagine as akin to the first radio, television, or downloaded porn mpg…

Dollhouse Recap: Briar Rose

Sunday, May 3 by

This week’s episode of Dollhouse can best be described as a twisted version of Sleeping Beauty, where Echo’s savior could either be an altruistic ex-FBI agent, or a violent, vengeful ex-lover. Story TimeA man wearing tattered clothing approaches a dumpster and begins sifting through its contents.  Pulling aside a few bits of trash reveals a human arm, poking through the rubbish.  The man moves forward to inspect what must be a disposed carcass, but when he is within range the hand lashes out and closes around the poor guy’s throat.

15 ACTORS YOU KNOW FROM SOMEWHERE…

Sunday, May 3 by

They don’t quite possess the good looks and panache necessary to thrive as A-list leading men, and they haven’t yet been granted a role meaty enough to raise them up to supporting actor status.  They are the supporting actor’s supporting actor.  The character actors that populate a film with moving, emotional performances yet too often go unnoticed or remain the undistinguished “guy who was good in that movie.”  We here at ScreenJunkies wish to honor a few of these unsung heroes of the silver screen.  It’s time to eliminate the question mark and give these outstanding thespians the recognition they deserve.    COLM FEORE Movies You’ve Seen Him In: Changeling The Exorcism of Emily Rose The Chronicles of Riddick

‘DISTRICT 9′ TRAILER PROTECTS ALIEN ANONYMITY

Friday, May 1 by

The trailer for the Peter Jackson produced film District 9 hit the interweb today, and let’s just hope the corporate aliens aren’t watching.  In it there’s a facially pixilated alien being interviewed like he’s a former employee ratting on a CEO.  Only it’s in alien-speak, so you can’t understand a word he’s saying.  Unless of course you’re a dirty alien bent on Earth’s destruction! The film is directed by Neill Blomkamp, who was in line to direct the feature adaptation of Halo until the budget reached the fabricated figure of a trillion dollars and the studio shut it down.  From the look of the trailer, though, Neill seems be skilled in the ways of creating an interesting landscape, even if it’s not Master Chief blasting away the Covenant in The Armory. Check it out after the jump.
