'Room 237' Trailer Dissects 'The Shining' And Asks "Huh, What?"

Now that you mention it, 'The Shining' was kinda weird. In 1980, Stanley Kubrick made his horror classic The Shining. Over 30 years later, we're still left to wonder, what the heck was that? With the documentary Room 237, Rodney Ascher seeks answers to the film's hidden meanings and buried images that lead to a hedge maze of questions. Was Kubrick part of a conspiracy to fake the Apollo 11 moon mission? Why all the Holocaust themes? Is this movie really about America's abandonment of the gold standard? Why cast Shelley Duvall? She's quite weird-looking, yes? So, if you're a lover of film and hater of the government, this is the film for you. Although, if this subject matter is a bit too heady for you, perhaps the documentary about the hidden meanings in 227 is more your speed. Pearl's love of cheeseburgers HAD to symbolize something.

IKEA Pays Homage To 'The Shining'

Allt arbete och ingen lek gör Jack en tråkig pojke. Allt arbete och ingen lek gör Jack en tråkig pojke. IKEA would like to wish you a Happy Halloween with this creepy commercial that draws its inspiration from Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. In it, a clearly deranged little boy hallucinates that he is big wheeling through an expansive IKEA while gruesome reminders of terrible murder play off the store's simplified furniture. In the end, it was all but a chilling dream. Let's hope he gets the help that he needs. And maybe one of those lighting fixtures. So elegant yet so subdued.


'Dexter' Sets Up His Final Kill Room In Latest Teaser

After this season, there will be no more 'Dexter' teasers. We've already been treated to a few teasers for the upcoming season of Dexter, but now that it's confirmed to be its final, expect a much more aggressive push. So far, new footage has been kept to a minimal so in the meantime we can enjoy these stylistic recap spots which is okay, because it's now hitting home that Dexter is ending. That means no more kill rooms, no more blood slides, no more convenient reasons to get Harrison out of town. And after this season, there will be no more Dexter teasers. We always knew Miami would run out of serial killers eventually, but now that that day is here, it feels weird.


‘Scream’ Porn Parody Gives New Meaning To Stabbing

It's just like the original, but with hardcore sex! With any major hit TV show or movie lately, it's only a matter of time before there's a porn version. Seriously, you can set your clock to it. There's even a "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Porn parody, and having only seen the cover, I can tell you it's pretty gruesome. I don't know if there's anything inherently sexy about "The Cosby Show" or "Star Trek," but you can get hardcore tributes to both. Now, coming in April, Vivid Entertainment brings you Scream: A XXX Parody. It appears to be a pretty straight ahead send up of the original film, complete with similar deaths (and added penetration, of course).  The "film" was directed by Eli Cross, and stars Lily LaBeau, Zoe Voss, Sarah Shevon, Scarlett Fay, Jesse Andrews, Angelica Lane, Evan Stone, James Deen, Rocco Reed, Jack and Ron Jeremy." It's out on DVD April 15, 2011, so you can file your taxes on the last possible date and spend your refund money on porn in the same day. (Bloody Disgusting)


MSNBC Learned Putting News Team In Sombreros, Drinking Tequila, For Cinco de Mayo Means You Have To Apologize For It 3 Months Later

You should see what they did on April 20th. The discussion of representing other ethnicities and the boundaries of good taste will always be a source of much contention between people, but I think that we can all agree that we don't want to see our white newscasters on MSNBC in sombreros, drinking fake tequila to "celebrate" Cinco de Mayo. Because it's insensitive? Maybe. Because it's really, stupid and unprofessional? Yeah. Definitely that one. On the Way Too Early show (I smell a Pulitzer based on the name alone), host Thomas Roberts shared the origins of the holiday (understandable) while his PRODUCER, ambled around in a big hat with a flask of what we all assume is tequila. Dude, a margarita is far less offensive. Anyway, because it takes 90-120 days to apologize for something stupid and indefensible, MSNBC is just now getting their "I'm sorry"s out to an association of Hispanic journalists through an appearance by the network president at their annual convention. They should also direct it to anyone with good taste who just wants to watch the news in the morning. (Deadline)


Malcolm McDowell Discusses 'A Clockwork Orange'

The film's influence shocked even him. Every once in a while, Malcolm McDowell comes around for an interview about his latest film or TV show, like Gangster No. 1, the Halloween remakes, or “Heroes.” Of course the temptation is always to throw in a Clockwork Orange question. Now finally here’s a chance to talk about nothing but A Clockwork Orange. For the Stanley Kubrick film’s 40th anniversary, A Clockwork Orange makes its debut on Blu-ray. McDowell is featured in many bonus features looking back at the film, and he also gave some in person interviews at the Warner Home Video offices to support the release. I threw in a Caligula question to compare the context of another legendarily controversial Malcolm McDowell movie, but really I stuck with Clockwork Orange. I could have asked up his upcoming roles in Silent Hill 3D or Vamps but do you really need news scoops on a video game movie sequel? Better to dig into the legacy of the droogs, copycat violence and to a lesser extent, Roman orgies. A Clockwork Orange Blu-ray streets May 31 along with a Stanley Kubrick Blu-ray collection and Malcolm McDowell’s Never Apologize DVD.
