With the surprising success of Friday, Ice Cube learned he could earn millions of dollars without the stress of having to make sure everything he said rhymed. This opened the doors to Hollywood wide for other hardcore rappers aspiring to be terrible actors. It’s also the film that put Chris Tucker on the map, before he promptly took himself off of it. Honestly, anybody know which country he’s in these days?

It’s time for the classic hood comedy to get knocked the f&%# out.

‘Rush Hour 4′ Is In The Works, Says Producer Whose Words You Can Understand Coming Out Of His Mouth http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rush-hour-4-is-in-the-works-says-producer-whose-words-you-can-understand-coming-out-of-his-mouth/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rush-hour-4-is-in-the-works-says-producer-whose-words-you-can-understand-coming-out-of-his-mouth/#comments Mon, 30 Jul 2012 20:47:20 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=250052 This will allow Chris Tucker to do absolutely nothing of consequence for the ten years or so.

Because there are STILL unanswered questions stemming from the first three, a Rush Hour 4 is in the works, according to producer Arthur Sarkissian. The fourth installment will return to the grittiness of the first film, which itself can only be considered “gritty” in the context of the other two sequels, I guess.

I had always thought that Jackie Chan was the guy you used to get grit off your movies. And Chris Tucker was the guy you used to get them to taste like white bread and water.

Now what will the fourth Rush Hour entail, plot-wise? Hmm. Probably a sassy talking dog, maybe sassy Puerto Rican wives, or maybe a sassy eight-year old that the duo are charged with protecting.

There will be sass.

Yes, I see your hand up, you in the back, and director Brett Ratner’s involvement isn’t imagined at this time, though Mr. Sarkissian did say Ratner was “more than welcome to do it,” which is a nice way of saying, “Mr. Ratner can go fuck himself. I have a gay son who I love very much.”

9 Actors Who Are More Annoying Than Woody Allen http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-actors-who-are-more-annoying-than-woody-allen/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-actors-who-are-more-annoying-than-woody-allen/#comments Tue, 22 Nov 2011 15:00:17 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=237082 If you like being reminded of annoying things, this list is for you.

The post 9 Actors Who Are More Annoying Than Woody Allen appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Last night, PBS finished a two part documentary on acclaimed comedic actor, writer and director, Woody Allen. In spite of all his acclaim and talent, the sight of Allen onscreen in any capacity annoys and angers me. His voice falls upon my ears in the same register as nails on a chalkboard, or screeching brakes. It’s nothing personal (though I guess it is). I just can’t stand the guy.

However, there are some actors who, for one reason or another, surpass Mr. Allen in the annoying department, in my humble opinion. Let’s take a look at a few who can torpedo a movie with even so much as a cameo.

Jay Leno

Ok. Jay Leno isn’t an actor. But he appears in countless films as himself, a talk-show host who serves as the indicator that a character now exists in the cultural lexicon. His presence has become so clichéd, as have the inevitable bad, one-off joke that his “character” delivers, that I hate to see him in any film. He’s a lumbering bridge between the fictional world and the real world that terminates suspension of disbelief and serves as a reminder that Jay Leno exists and that I just paid $15 to see him in a movie, if only for a second.

Harvey Fierstein

I don’t know what raspy rock this guy climbed out from under, but I wish he would get back to it. Fortunately, he doesn’t make too many appearances these days, so I’m able to largely keep him out of mind. But his turn in Independence Day still haunts me, my only solace being the knowledge that his character got crushed by a flying car. His voice and affectations dominate every scene. His acting is the equivalent of Brad Pitt deciding that he’s going to do every film from now on with a KFC bucket on his head, but way less awesome than that.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Here uber-calm demeanor always has me feeling as though she is conducting an internal monologue. Granted, the heavy-handed narrative of SATC has everything to do with this, but we’re talking about effects here, not causes. She seems superhumanly patient with everything, always speaking with thinly-veiled exasperation that never seem to develop into anything more. And that’s annoying, like being around a person whose default setting is “whiney” when they’re oblivious to it.

Brett Ratner Thinks “Rehearsing Is For Fags” http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/brett-ratner-thinks-rehearsing-is-for-fags/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/brett-ratner-thinks-rehearsing-is-for-fags/#comments Mon, 07 Nov 2011 20:00:48 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=235404 Also, competent directing is for retards.

During a Q&A at the Arclight Cinema in Hollywood after a screening of his new film Tower Heist, director Brett Ratner responded to a question from the moderator about his preparation with the telling reply, “Rehearsing is for fags.” Vulture reports that he also “waved his hand dismissively.”

GASP!

Sure, his throwaway comment will undoubtedly ruffle some feathers in the LGBT communities, but Ratner using a homophobic slur to disparage something really isn’t news. (It would be news if he didn’t, actually.) The bigger story is that we have figured out a factor in why Ratner’s films are not very good ever.

Based on his comment, I’ve compiled a list of other things that Brett Ratner probably thinks are for fags, pussies, and possibly retards:

  • Compelling scripts
  • Not casting Chris Tucker
  • Antiperspirant for your face
  • Treating the homosexual community with dignity and respect
  • Thoughtful pacing and direction of films
  • Not driving a Lamborghini through South Beach at 2 AM huntin’ for sluts
  • Stanley Kubrick’s entire catalogue

Star Maps: The Dingiest Celebrity Homes http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/star-maps-the-dingiest-celebrity-homes/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/star-maps-the-dingiest-celebrity-homes/#comments Fri, 14 Oct 2011 21:09:28 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=232514 In honor of Chris Tucker losing his pirate ship-themed home.

Chris Tucker is facing foreclosure on his waterfront Orlando home. The actor owes the bank $4.4 million on the $6 million home, which has five bedrooms, three fireplaces, and a basement designed to look like a pirate ship. Wow. I’d heard Chris Tucker was crazy, but I didn’t realize he was Nicolas Cage crazy.

Tucker should realize that as crappy as it seems right now, things could always be much worse. Like in the case of these seven celebrities who have lived in some of the dingiest or strangest homes. Keep your head up, Chris Tucker. And whatever you’re thinking of doing, don’t. The world doesn’t need another Rush Hour movie.

Mike Tyson’s Abandoned Mansion

Mike Tyson‘s abandoned Southington mansion is about the only thing that could get me to roadtrip to Ohio. Complete with a moss covered indoor swimming pool, a massive, trashed living room, holes punched through walls, and rusty tiger cages, it’s like a dark-humored Disney World. Oh, I guess that would make it Disney Land.

The boxer lived here for a period in the 1990′s and it has sat abandoned ever since. If I were a high schooler, I would so party in there.

Taran Noah Smith’s Trashed House


Home Improvement’s youngest son Taran Noah Smith has had a bit of a tough time. He was kicked out of his Sherman Oaks home shortly after he and his wife decided to open a vegan restaurant in it. They left the house looking like the site of an acid trip orgy. Cryptic messages and strange drawings were found drawn on the walls that were left standing. That’s why he should have gone to college. That’s were you go to get vandalism out of your system.

DiCaprio To Slave (Driver) Away For Tarantino’s ‘Django’? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dicaprio-to-host-slave-battles-for-tarantinos-django-unchained/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dicaprio-to-host-slave-battles-for-tarantinos-django-unchained/#comments Wed, 08 Jun 2011 03:54:38 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=215254 DiCaprio is now entering actual talks to play Calvin Candie, the ruthless slave owner who could use a big dose of vitamin comeuppance.

Though the possibility has gotten more remote, Will Smith could be returning to the wild wild west as the lead in Quentin Tarantino‘s new spaghetti western Django Unchained. Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio is now in actual talks to play the lead villain. Between Tarantino, Smith and DiCaprio, that’d be one heckuva posse.

Leo’s All-Time Greatest Spazzouts

DiCaprio might play Calvin Candie, the ruthless Candyland ranch owner, who pits male slaves against one another in battles to the death and offers up the female slaves for sexual abuse. Man, that guy could use a big dose of vitamin comeuppance. Freed slave Django must come to his captive wife’s rescue. Smith is on the top of Tarantino’s list for Django, though Jamie Foxx, Idris Elba and Chris Tucker (really?) are also possibilities. Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson are also expected to join the cast in major roles.

Tarantino almost nabbed DiCaprio for Landa in Inglorious Basterds, as the actor was interested in the role early on. The talks didn’t pan out that time, but perhaps second time’s a charm? (Deadline)
