Jason Statham has been talking about the next installment in the ever-popular Expendables series, and has been indulging in some fantasy casting of his own by saying he hopes Jackie Chan (already linked to the project) joins the fun…
Fuck yeah! I love movies where action heroes make fun of themselves. Expendables 2 was hilarious.
The Perfect Host (2010) - dir. Nick Tomnay
Let’s break this film down by parts. The opening sequence is laughably bad, Clayne Crawford is a terrible actor, I have full confidence in my next statement: If Tomnay cast me as John Taylor, the film would have been much better. It’s not often you can look at a film and one-hundred percent say, “Hey, I’m way better at acting than that guy.” The writing was also a mess, but it all happened just to get Taylor (Crawford) into Warwick Wilson’s (David Hyde Pierce) house.
Once we’re in Wilson’s house, we don’t want Taylor to be able to get out. David Hyde Pierce is brilliant. BRILLIANT. He’s positively terrifying and absolutely hysterical at the same time. The middle section of this film is fantastic, I was totally hooked. But then Taylor, inevitably, is released by his captor back to the streets and the bad writing catches up and you lose interest again. Still, the entire film is worth it for the middle portion.
I am disregarding that review and saying this movie was one hell of a mind fuck and worth watching.
I’m too lazy to look and I doubt it’s there but I think the scene in Four Rooms where Tim Roth is standing with the needle in his thigh, holding onto the dead “whore’s” leg inside the mattress for balance with Antonio Banderas’ children behind him, the girl with a raised bottle to her mouth and the boy with a cigarette, the room ablaze, and New Years fireworks in the window deserves to be on this list.
Parker, Jason Statham’s new starring vehicle, has released a first trailer, featuring everyone’s favourite cockney bruiser as a very moral thief…
Oh no, not J Lo.
As well as overseeing all of Marvel’s Phase Two movie projects, Joss Whedon is also set to write a new TV series for the studio, focusing on a new cast of characters from peacekeeping organisation, S.H.I.E.L.D…
Billy Crystal has dropped a few tantalising details about Pixar’s upcoming prequel Monsters University, hinting it involves elements of Revenge Of The Nerds…
Yessss! How cute it will be!
If you were worried that director Kimberly Pierce’s Carrie remake would forgo the emotion of Brian De Palma’s classic in pursuit of modern-day thrills, fear not – according to actress Judy Greer, we’re in for a hell of a ride…
I find it interesting that when it comes to remakes of movies that are based off of books, our fear is that it won’t compare to the original film, yet we disregard that regardless of the original film, what if it’s a more successful take on the book?
Why is the original film a concern here when it is not, in fact, original at all.
Day 02: A terrible movie you love
Absolutely stupid yet somehow brilliant, if I was sober I might have hated it I don’t know - the only other opinion I can look to is my brother, and he was drunk too.
This movie is fucking awesome. And I’ve never seen it drunk, so..
