The creators of Gremlins recently sat down with Empire and revealed that the film’s creatures were nearly very different. Puppet technology hadn’t come as far as it has today and the filmmakers were struggling with the best way to bring the evil creatures to life. And much like a greeting card photographer, they weren’t above shooting monkeys in suits.

Dante: First we talked about stop-motion. Then realised we’d still be shooting if we did that. And at one point someone — I hope it wasn’t me — suggested we try monkeys in Gremlin suits.

Rick Baker: Hey, it worked in (Laurel and Hardy movie) Babes In Toyland.

Dante: But that one just had a Mickey Mouse head on. We actually did get a monkey and put a head on him and watched him careen around the editing room, pooping on everything in terror. We decided it wasn’t really going to work out.

I believe that fear of getting poop on everything is also a big reason why you don’t see Amanda Bynes in movies anymore.

All of my experience with the legal system comes from repeated viewings of Pauly Shore‘s Jury Duty, so I probably wouldn’t be the best one to choose a lawyer. For instance, have a look at these commercials for local law firms. They run the gamut of terrible to so terrible that they’re amazing. Each has its own unique charm, and watching all of them is highly encouraged. They’re much better than Jury Duty.

Rock n’ Roll Attorney David Komie

The dreadlocked man you see shredding the guitar in the video above is Rock n’ Roll Attorney David Komie, the attorney that rocks. I can’t really speak to his credentials when it comes to personal injury cases or his aggressiveness toward mesothelioma, but I can tell you that he knows a few chords and wears eyeliner. Not only does he offer free consultations but he can also help you score.

Leandros A. Vrionedes, PC

When you’re selecting the person most appropriate to represent you in a court of law you want someone proper and dignified. You also want their commercial to look like a really low budget Final Destination movie with narration by Michael Caine. That’s why you should choose New York’s Leandros A. Vrionedes, PC. He can make sense of it all.

7 Movie Banks/Bankers That Are Worse Than Bank Of America http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-movie-banksbankers-that-are-worse-than-bank-of-america/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-movie-banksbankers-that-are-worse-than-bank-of-america/#comments Fri, 30 Sep 2011 23:08:05 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=230768 That's it.

Bank of America‘s announcement that they will issue a $5 monthly charge to debit card users has only served to remin the American people that banks don’t care about their customers. They are corporate machines fueled by greed and low moral fortitude. But still, they sometimes have free hats and Frisbees.

With that in mind here are some movie banks and bankers that might be more evil than their real life counterparts.

Arthur Case – Inside Man

I’m not sure which is more evil. Banks or Nazis? But have you ever considered the possibility of a Nazi bank? That’s one bank that I wouldn’t want to borrow from. Just imagine their foreclosure practices.

Centabank – The Bank

The titular bank in the Australian movie The Bank is completely corrupt. CEO Anthony LaPaglia declares, “I’m like God with a better suit.” You know you’re in trouble when the guy holding your money has a God complex. It’s no wonder that his customers are so found of Marmite sandwiches. There isn’t much else they can afford.

Screw ‘Avatar’: 8 Movies That Deserve An Amusement Park Ride http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/screw-avatar-8-movies-that-deserve-their-own-amusement-park-rides/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/screw-avatar-8-movies-that-deserve-their-own-amusement-park-rides/#comments Wed, 21 Sep 2011 13:29:51 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=229278 If Spinning Teacups can be a ride, so can these.

The announcement that James Cameron and Disney are teaming to create Avatar: The Ride seems like a no-brainer. The movie made butt-clumps of cash and the instantly recognizable characters live in a lush world of breathtaking beauty. Also, there are these, like, dragon things they fly on. It only makes sense that the world of Pandora would me immortalized as a thrill-ride.

However, there are a few other films out there that deserved their chance to frighten and exhilarate thousands of excited fans. But alas, for some reason or another, the deals never went through. Here are seven films that would undoubtedly make kick-ass amusement park attractions.

Final Destination 3

Though it would be tough to get the insurance companies on board, Final Destination 3 would make an excellent roller-coaster. Think of how scared you and your friends would be knowing that the brakes and safety equipment could give at any moment. But which moment? It’s the anticipation that’s truly scary.

Titanic

Titanic has thrill ride written all over it. Imagine the rush as you cling to a railing with icy water rushing to meet you. Then your life boat-shaped pod drops and stops just short of making a splash before rising up and doing it all over again.
